1. Chaos Walking by Patrick Ness: I've heard good things about this series for a long time. I even own the first book, which I plan to read soon-ish. In the next coming years, the series is getting a movie adaptation, so I definitely need to read them!!
2. A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin: I don't know how many times these books (or the TV show) have been recommended to me. I own the first four books, but I have yet to feel brave enough to pick up the hefty volume and read it. Maybe soon? Or... never?
3. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas: Like ASOIAF, I've been told numerous times but numerous people to read Throne of Glass, but I haven't. I'm not sure why. Maybe it's because I've also been told it's not that good, or maybe I just focused on other (read: better) books that are out there?
4. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard: This series is right there with Throne of Glass. I've been told to read it, but I've also heard it wasn't as good. I've been kind of back and forth about what to do, so maybe I should just try it out and decide for myself.
5. The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss: I've been told over and over by a few close friends that I need, need, need, need to read this series. But... the books are so long! I love a long story (I mean, I read Les Mis last year), but sometimes long books are so intimidating, especially when my TBR pile is overflowing. What to do... what to do...
6. Gentleman Bastard by Scott Lynch: Again, I've been told by multiple friends that I have to read these books. The first is on my short list to start soon, once I finish all the library books I currently have checked out. So we'll see.
7. The Broken Empire by Mark Lawrence: I was recommended the first book in this series during a writing workshop in order to help my own writing and world-building, but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet. I should probably put it on my short list and read it soon, right?
8. Space Trilogy by C.S. Lewis: I read Out of the Silent Planet forever ago, but I never finished the trilogy. I received a copy of all three books in one volume (which has a gorgeous cover) for my birthday several years ago, but... I still didn't finish. Do you see my problem?
9. The Dinosaur Lords by Victor Milán: This series is about medieval knights that ride dinosaurs into battle. I mean, come on! Did somebody read my Christmas list or what? This sounds epic, and most of the reviews say it's good. Must. Read. Soon.
10. The Queen's Thief by Megan Whalen Turner: Okay, okay, I read The Thief a while ago, back in high school, and honestly, I forgot the rest of the series existed. (Oops.) But recently with the hype for the Thick as Thieves release, this series has caught my interest again. I'll probably have to re-read The Thief first, but hey, it's worth it!
Should I even bother with any of these? Any other series you'd recommend?
