If you’ve read my 25 Bookish Facts post then you know that, while I do read series in sequential order, I generally don’t read them consecutively. Sometimes it actually takes me quite a while to get back to a series that I’ve started. In fact, since last year I’ve started at least ten series that I’m kind of still in the middle of reading. So in honor of all the Geminis out there I will be tackling my series TBR.
Wait, what? What the heck to Geminis have to do with anything? I can explain… Since the symbol for Gemini is the Roman numeral two, I will be “reading twos” while the sun is “in Gemini,” from May 21st to June 21st. Meaning that, for the next thirty days I will be reading Book 2 in various series that I’ve previously started.
Here’s the list of books I’ll be choosing from:
Glory in Death by J.D. Robb (In Death series)
The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan (The Wheel of Time series)
The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman (His Dark Material series)
Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor (Daughter of Smoke and Bone series)
Glamour in Glass by Mary Robinette Kowal (Glamourist Histories series)
The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya by Nagaru Tanigawa (Haruhi Suzumiya series)
Before the Fall by Francis Knight (Rojan Dizon series)
Wicked Business by Janet Evanovich (Lizzy and Diesel series)
*Salvation of a Saint by Keigo Higashino (Detective Galileo series)
Lines of Departure by Marko Kloos (Frontlines series)
I don’t have a reading order planned. I’ll just be picking from the list at random. However, I will be leaving The Great Hunt for last in hopes that I won’t actually get to it, since I wasn’t that crazy about book one in that series. Ideally I’ll get through at least eight of these books. I’ll still have a lot of books in a lot of series left to read but, hey, it’s a start.
So, do you guys have any series in your TBR that you’ve left hanging? Let me know in the comments.
Peace and Books,
The Dollar Reader
*I did a little research and it turns out that Salvation of a Saint is actually the fourth book to feature “Detective Galileo” (which is actually the character’s nickname.) However, only the latter two books in the original Japanese series have been published in English, so in the US this title marketed as book 2 in the series.
