I am done with college!!!…for the semester…but still! I’m on summer vacation finally. And that means way more reading will hopefully be happening since all I have planned is work. This is the first summer since junior year that I’ve had it off, I’ve always done summer school.
So to celebrate having the time off from school, I decided I’m going to participate in a thing called Series Summer. I saw this on Jacqueline’s channel over at JBookLover on YouTube. I’ll add her links down below so you can check her out and maybe join in the series summer!
So series summer is basically where you try and read book series over summer break that you either haven’t gotten around to or just haven’t finished yet. There are quite a few that I haven’t finished yet so I’ll be doing that this summer. Some of them aren’t complete yet but I do want to finish what’s out by the end of summer.
So let’s get started!
The first series I want to finish is the Poison Study series by Maria V Snyder! I left off at Magic Study and haven’t gotten around to purchasing the third one, but I have the next two after it. So hopefully once I get it I’ll just marathon it. They’re a series about a girl name Yelenia who becomes the commander’s poison tester in place of being executed, and about her journey and adventures after that. I love this series and I always finish it really fast because I get go absorbed in them!
The next series is actually a trilogy and it’s the Internment Chronicles by Lauren DeStefano. I read the first book called Perfect Ruin, and absolutely loved it so I hope to finish the last two of the series this summer. They’re super short so I’m sure I can finish them in a day or two. They’re about a city called Internment and it’s in the clouds above earth. The main character Morgan starts wondering about all the murders happening there and a mystery starts to unfold.
Next is the Covenant series by Jennifer L Armentrout. I’ve only gotten up to the third book but I hope to finish this series by the end of summer as well. I’ve read her other two young adult series and loved them so this is high up on my list. It’s not as good to me as the Lux series or the Dark Elements series but still very very good! It’s basically about two races of Hematoi: Pures and Half-Bloods, and it’s about the main character Alexandria who doesn’t want to become a servant, but a sentinel. It’s all about her journey to trying to achieve her goal, and the craziness that comes along with that journey.
I also plan on reading the Across the Universe trilogy, and I haven’t even start this one yet, which sucks because I’ve heard great things about them! They’re by Beth Revis, who’s other books sound really good as well so I’ll have to check those out sometime too! I honestly don’t know much about these, just that they’re about aliens and space. So sounds about right up my alley! I’m really excited to start this series so we’ll see how it all goes.
Next is the Falling Kingdoms series by Morgan Rhodes. I’ve read up to the third book, and I know there’s another coming out soon so I have to get on it and finish the current books! I loved this series so much, and I’m super excited to see what happens and how the story goes! It’s told from four different perspectives in three different areas. And you see into their lives and follow their journeys through really tough moments of their lives. Still have to post my review for Rebel Spring (book 2) so hopefully I’ll be getting to that soon as well.
I also want to finish the Starbound trilogy, which I am currently on book 2, still reading it sadly. Glad I decided to take it to NY with me this week, I’ll hopefully be done by the time I get home from my trip! But I loved the first book so it’s saddened me that it took me so long to get into the second book, and to really start liking the characters. Hopefully that changes as the book goes on. These are by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner by the way.
Last series is the Throne of Glass series. I’m also including A Court of Mist and Fury since I haven’t read that yet but I have a copy of it. For throne of glass I have read up the the third one, so I plan on starting there and reading the last two that were published. I plan on reading them all before Empire of Storms comes out, that is my goal!
So I noticed that it’s quite a bit of series I plan on reading but oh well! At least it gives me something to work towards! I also plan on trying to sequeeze in other books as well on top of the series books and review books I’ll be reading but we’ll see how that goes!
Let me know in the comments what books you plan on reading this summer, and if you plan on doing the series summer too and your TBR for that! I’d really like to know!
