So recently I pre-ordered Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare. This is book 2 in The Dark Artifices which follows the events of Lady Midnight. I’m excited to get this, but as I haven’t read Lady Midnight yet, it will be some time before I get to read Lord of Shadows. When pre-ordering this, it made me realise, as readers, we do buy a whole series in one go without reading the first book within a series or buy a sequel to a book without reading the one prior to it. I feel like it’s just something us readers do without realising. So I would like to tell you some of the series’ that I have done this before either the ones that I have enjoyed reading or the ones that I have yet to read. So let’s get this list underway.
Many of these books are series’ that I have either loved, have yet to read, or partially read yet still enjoying. Some of these are series’ that are well known and loved or just loved by those few people that have heard of them. So let’s see some of the books that I have bought in one go:
- The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
- Have read all of these books and can honestly just see why these books are so popular. I wish there were more in this world that would follow different characters.
- The Bone Season and The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon
- Have still yet to read but I really want to join on this bandwagon for this series. It sounds something I will enjoy a lot.
- The Wrath and the Dawn and The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Adhieh
- I loved this duology. It was just the right thing to read at the time. Will highly recommend this to anyone honestly.
- Outlander and Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon
- Even before I read Outlander I knew it was going to be my favourite series. And now that I have, I knew I was right about it.
- A Darker Shade of Magic Trilogy by V. E. Schwab
- Have heard nothing but amazing things about this series and I really can’t wait to join on this bandwagon. Just hope I can get to this entire series soon.
- Starcrossed Trilogy by Josephine Angelini
- Bought book 3 before any of the others so I had to buy the rest of the series. I really hate it when that happens.
- Shadows, Haze, Shimmer and Burn by Paula Weston
- Amazing fallen angel recommendation that so many BookTubers talk about. Have read Shadows and Haze and have yet to read the last time the series. It takes on a whole different side of the same old fallen angel side than other fallen angel series that is out there. Would recommend it to anyone who likes fallen angels.
- Angelfall, Worlds After and End of Days by Susan Ee
- Another fallen series that took a whole different take on fallen angels. Another one I would recommend if you guys haven’t read it already.
Those are some of the series that I have bought all of the books in one go or bought the first two books in a completely new series. I don’t mind doing this. I only really do this when I’m certain I’m going to like and enjoy a new series. Is anyone else like this? What series have you done this before? Comment below and let me know.
