Happy Tuesday, book friends! This week’s Top 5 Tuesday topic has me a bit stumped, as I don’t really read many series these days. Unless you count the loosely affiliated romances that pass for series these days, like Well Met or the Thistle Grove witches series. Personally I’m not sure if these are series in the traditional sense, since the plots often don’t rely on one another in any meaningful way and they operate much more like standalone books.
But I digress. Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by Bionic Bookworm, now hosted by Meeghan Reads. If you’re interested in participating, check out their blog to get the details and the prompts for each week.
Let’s see if I can find any series that I’m planning to read this year, though I’ll be pretty surprised if I manage a full five!
Her Majesty’s Royal Coven by Juno Dawson
I keep hearing about this book, which is set to be the first in a new series. I’ve been really wanting to read a bit more books with a fantasy element, and I’ll definitely be picking this one up.
A Spindle Splintered by Alix E. Harrow
This was one of the books on my failed Witchtober TBR, and is the first book in Harrow’s Fractured Fables series. I will 100% get to this in 2023.
The Simple Wild by K.A. Tucker
I see this series on Bookstagram all the time and I’m very curious about it. So, I’ll be picking up the first one at some point this year. Probably.
A Lady’s Guide to Mischief and Mayhem by Manda Collins
This book has been sitting on my TBR cart for about a year, and since I’m focusing on reading from the TBR this year, I will be picking it up at some point in the not-too-distant future. This is the first book in the Ladies Most Scandalous series, so there’ll be a sequel in my future if I enoy it.
Set On You by Amy Lea
The Influencers series looks like one of those series that is more a bunch of books set in the same universe than books that build upon one another, but I’m still counting it because it gets me to a full top 5. I’ve been wanting to read this one for a while but am resisting buying a copy until it’s next in line.
I’m surprised I got to five series, if I’m honest! Which book series do you recommend? I’m definitely interested in recommendations!
