For the past few months I’ve been scouring the internet for books by authors I haven’t read from before (new for me, not new in general). I was looking for stories whose premises seemed interesting and would stand out among all the other books I’ve read so far. Much to my joy, I found several that are all the first in a series – couldn’t find any stand-alones. I’m really excited to see what adventures await me within these new worlds.
- A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet (Kingmaker Trilogy)
- Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes (Falling Kingdoms)
- Fate of Flames by Sarah Raughley (Effigies)
- Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard (Red Queen)
- Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill (Chicagoland Vampires)
- Truthwitch by Susan Dennard (Witchlands)
- Zodiac by Romina Russell (Zodiac)
As much as I’m looking forward to starting these series, I’m even more excited to continue reading the following series:
- Dawn Study by Maria V. Snyder (Study, book 6)
- Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs (Alpha and Omega, book 4)
- Dreamer’s Daughter by Lynn Kurland (A Novel of the Nine Kingdoms, book 9)
- Shadowstorm by Dianne Sylvan (Shadow World, book 6)
- The Battle of Hackham Heath by John Flanagan (Ranger’s Apprentice: The Early Years, book 2)
- The Hunters by John Flanagan (Brotherband Chronicles, book 3)
2017 is going to be a big reading year. What books are you looking forward to reading? What titles do you recommend I add to my list? Let me know in the comments what you think.
As always, happy reading!
