TBR: Fictional Book Bucketlist (#1)

All book-bloggers have this problem: looking at their TBR pile and having no idea what to read next.

I’ve been so caught up on reviews and ARCs the last year or so that I haven’t stopped to think about what authors/series have been on my TBR pile for years that I still haven’t got around to. ARCs are great, don’t get me wrong, but I need to find a bit of a balance!

I’ve put together the top books/series that I’m hoping to get through sometime soon. I think they will all be trips to the library as I don’t own any of them:

68488Robin Hobb:

I’ve read one of her trilogies a couple of years ago and fell in love with her characters and world-building. I have no idea why I haven’t yet read any more of her work, I think other books have just taken priority.

I’m hoping in the next couple of months to at least start one of her other trilogies. I thoroughly enjoyed the first – it was the sort of fantasy that I love to indulge in. I need to have a look at the reading order though, to see which series needs to be next.




Sarah J Maas

I’ve heard so much about this author but am ashamed to say that I haven’t yet read any of her work. This also might mean some investigating: I’m not certain whether I should start with Throne of Glass or A Court of Thorns and Roses. Does anyone know if there is a reading order here or whether it doesn’t matter?




Brandon Sanderson

Is anyone else noticing these are all fantasy authors? Maybe it is telling me that I need to go back to what I love and indulge for a while.

Anyway, Sanderson is another author that I see crop up a lot but haven’t touched any of his books myself. I don’t think I’ve even read that many reviews of his work; is anyone here a fan? I’ve heard his name enough that I want to experience his writing now!




Guy Gavriel Kay


Surprise, surprise: another fantasy author. I read one of his trilogies while at university and fell in love with his writing style. There was something so magical about his world-building and character development that I’ve been wanting to read more of his work ever since. Shame on me for never quite getting around to it.



I also have a few things that I would love to re-read. I’m itching to get through the Mortal Instruments again – I re-read the Infernal Devices last year and fell in love with it all over again, so I’m hoping the same will be true for TMI.

I read Terry Goodkind’s books about eight years ago, and have been pretty much wanting to re-read them ever since. It’s just such a long series it’s trying to fit it in around reviewing. But hopefully, soon!

How about you? What are some of the authors/series you want to read?

  1. The Throne of Glass-series and the ACOTAR-series are separate series. So it doesn’t really matter which one you read first. I still have to read Tower of Dawn in the ToG-series, but I honestly cannot tell you which of the two I like best. They’re both beautiful. ❤
    Hope you enjoy them once you get around to picking them up! 😀

  2. Hobbs books are so great. I’m currently reading the Tawney Man trilogy and am so hooked. I find the story exciting because some characters from the trilogy prior to this one (Liveship Traders trilogy) have popped up and now I’m all amazed.
