I'm not the type of reader to set up monthly book lists. I tend to just grab whatever looks good to me at the time. But I do like to set goals for series completion by the end of the year. I know I deviate from what I plan to read all the time, but if I set some goals to reach by the end of the year, I figure I'll have enough time. Then again I said this last year and there are a few repeat series on this list.
Weather Warden by Rachel Caine
I originally read this one back in 2011 and recently suggested it to my book club. This prompted a reread of Ill Wind last year and I fell in love with the series again. Though it is a bit steamier than I remember, the magic system is so unique. I really want to give these books proper reviews this year.
Allie Beckstrom Series by Devon Monk
This is going to be another reread, and once again it is thanks to my book club. This series was the first to introduce me to sarcastic humor in a book. And the character who brought it to life was, of course, one of the most damaged characters in the series. And Shane quickly became my favorite. He even got himself a spin off series that I bought as soon as it hit the shelves.
Titania Academy by Samaire Wynne
The covers caught my eye when I walked by this author's booth at a local Dragon Festival. I haven't read a school setting series in a while, and it sounds like this one is going to be a fun twist on the setting.
Dead Meat by Nick Clausen
I said I was going to finish this series last year and never went back to it. I don't read a lot of zombie apocalypse books, only because I don't know many of them. But I joined a book tour for Dead Meat Day 1 and enjoyed it! I plan on actually finishing this series this time.
By the Hand of Dragons by Alexzander Christion
I've been steadily chipping away at this dark fantasy series. The amount of power the main characters wield promises that each novel will have battles of epic proportions. Picture King Kong vs Godzilla every time you crack open a book. Absolute destruction and ever increasing power levels. This is an amped up ride that I can't wait to keep reading.
Have you read any of these series? If so, what did you think of them?
