What series should I read this summer?


June 13, 2018 by elnadesbookchat


Even though I have always read a lot, and I try to keep up on what is out there, I still find books and authors I am unfamiliar with.   Since becoming a book blogger a couple of years ago, I have come across new to me authors that have older series I missed that sound really good.  So this summer I am on a quest to read at least a couple of them.  But I need your help to decide which ones.  I am going to list 4 choices and then there is a poll at the end for you  to vote and let me know which one I should read.  

The Unwind Series by Neal Schusterman.

Someone gave me a copy of the first book awhile ago and I bought the second one.  Except for Scythe and Challenger Deep, I haven’t read any of his other books, I don’t think.  This one sounds really interesting and something I would like.  Plus those covers are really spooky and intriguing. 

Shades of Magic Series by V.E. Schwab

I have all three of these books and I have read the first one, and really liked it, but never got to the other two.  I would probably reread the first one again before moving on.  I have heard nothing but good things about this series, and I loved her Monsters of Verity books.  I have also heard that the Villains series is excellent. 


Reboot Series by Amy Tinturra

I just finished her Ruined series and even though I was slightly disappointed in the series ending, I am willing to give her another try.  This one sounds interesting and I have been more in a science fiction mood lately rather than fantasy.

Firebird Series by Claudia Gray

This one is all about the covers!  I love them! But the story also sounds really good.  I have been enjoying her Constellation series so I am interested in seeing if I like her other books.  I have always had a fascination with alternate worlds too, which is what this series is all about.  Plus a murder mystery and a revenge plot.  Sounds good to me.

I would really appreciate the help in choosing which of these series to devote some reading time to this summer.  Please take the poll and leave a comment, especially if there is another series that you think I might like.  

Thanks for the help.  I will let you know the results in a couple of days.

    I haven’t read any of these so don’t feel I can vote – however they all sound worth a read so I’ll be interested to see which one wins!


  2. I haven’t read any of these so I probably shouldn’t have voted, but I voted for the Shades of Magic Series because you have already read the first one! Also I have heard lots of good things about that series!

    I always have to re-read the first books in the series if too much time has passed, otherwise I feel like I am going to miss things.

    The covers on the Firebird Series are amazing! I almost voted for them just for the covers 😀

    Good luck with whichever you end up reading!

    • I was a little bit worried that people wouldn’t vote because they hadn’t read them. Thanks for voting. I agree, I will reread a book I’ve really enjoyed before the next one comes out, I like to have it fresh in my memory.

  3. I have only finished the Shades of Magic series from your list, but it’s one of my favorite series. I love Schwab’s world-building. I still think about the opening of A Darker Shade of Magic. Definitely ranks high on favorite opening lines. Hope whichever you choose is amazing!
