Okay, so this week’s list kind of starts the same as last week’s. But that’s because I really, really am desperate to read them!
1. The Kingdom of the Gods by N. K. Jemisin
As I’ve said before, I love the first two books in this series. I actually can’t wait for this, and am seriously considering putting it on pre-order, which is something I hardly ever do!
2. The Magician King by Lev Grossman
Again, this one was on last week’s list. I really do just need that closure for what happens to Quentin and co. after they head back into Fillory.
3. A Clash of Kings by George R R Martin
So, I only really got around to reading A Game of Thrones this week. Yes, I know that was pretty late, especially given the recent hype, following the TV series, but the blurb of it just didn’t really appeal to me - or I thought it didn’t! Having read it, I pretty much need to know what happens next, and I can fully see myself buying this in paperback rather than kindle format, just so I have a proper copy!
4. Ocean of Blood – Darren Shan
The second book in The Saga of Larten Crepsley. I was definitely a massive fan of The Saga of Darren Shan, and I enjoyed the first in this saga too, so I will be picking this up at some point.
5. Before they are Hanged – Joe Abercrombie
The Blade Itself finished on such a cliffhanger that I need to know what happened next. It was one of those books where the gun is clearly loaded the whole time, but the shot is never quite let off. I’m hoping that in this book, that will be rectified, and I hope that all the characters will meet – it’s sure to be interesting when they do!
6. The follow-on to The Desert Spear by Peter V Brett
This series, thus far, has fascinated me, and I really do need to know how it ends. Apparently this is meant to be a trilogy, though after the last book, there were so many loose ends untied, it leaves me wondering if there will be more, or if not, how exactly everything will get finished.
7. Whatever comes after Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
Again, this feels like a bit of a cheat, because really, we waited years between The Name of the Wind and this book, so chances are it’ll be just as long before the next! That said, when it’s as good as this series, I can definitely wait.
8. Queen of Sorcery by David Eddings
I admit, I only finished Pawn of Prophecy this morning, but it’s left me wanting to know so much more – why is Garion so very important? And will they ever get back what’s stolen? I foresee this being one of those series I end up havin to read it all, just to get to the bottom of things!
9. The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa
Okay, I’ll admit it – I haven’t even started with this series yet! However, basically everyone in the blogs I follow is talking about this book/this series, and I’m compelled to find out what all the fuss is about. hence this book makes it onto the list.
10.The Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson
Again, one of those series’ that I feel I should have read, and just haven’t. I’ll be getting right on this when I’m back at my Uni house, to borrow them froma housemate – the storyline appeals, so I’m sure I’ll get on with it.
