I am well aware that 2020 has finally come to an end. But here I am finishing the series that I started back in December that I was supposed to finish in the same month.😅
This is the last part of my Book Catalogue series, and it is one that I dreaded the most. For this post, I will be sharing with you all the completed series that I have on my shelf that I have yet to pick up.
In the past years, I began hoarding books and binge reading them once I have all of the books. But I have accumulated a ton, and I never pick them up. Opppss.
So, without further ado, let us get into the books!
The Giver Quarter by Lois Lowry
I bought a secondhand copy of this pretty bind-up last year because I was intrigued by the story. And since I love dystopian books and I am in a quest to read popular books in the genre, I decided to pick it up. Hopefully, I will get around to it soon.
The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
If we are talking about classic fantasy, this is probably on every list. I want to know what the hype is all about, so when I saw this hardcover bind-up in a used bookstore, I immediately grab it and does not let it go. But it has been years since I bought this. And until now, I have yet to pick it up. I was intimidated by the size, and I feel like I need to be in the right headspace to pick this up. Hopefully, I would pick it up soon because I have a lot of Tolkien books on my shelf.😅
Arc of Scythe Trilogy by Neil Shusterman
I have never read a Neil Shusterman book before, but I always heard his name. I think most of his books are not my cup of tea, but this trilogy is right up my alley. I am excited to see how the utopian-dystopian aspect was played out. And I have never read anything but good things about this trilogy from the people whose opinions I trusted when it comes to books. So I am excited to pick it up.
The Conqueror’s Saga by Kiersten White
Now, this trilogy is more of an impulse buy rather than something that I absolutely like. I found the first book in a bookstore sale, and I could not resist picking it up since it was so cheap, and it is in hardcover. I had a hard time finding the third book, so I put off reading the books until I found it. But I never got around to reading it since I completed the trilogy.
Caraval Trilogy by Stephanie Garber
I enjoyed the Night Circus, but I do not love it. My favorite part is the Circus and the magic around it, and I remember someone on bookTube talking about how this book reminds her of the circus in the Night Circus. And after that, I have heard nothing but good reviews about this, although the hype died down faster than I expected. But still, I am intrigued. So when I saw this hardcover set for a reasonable price, I know I have to buy it.
The Traitor’s Circle Trilogy by Erin Beaty
I have never ever heard about this trilogy before. I know nothing about it, and I want it to stay that way. I saw someone selling these books, and I immediately fell in love with the cover. And so, I bought it without knowing what it was about. But I feel like it would have a trashy romance type of story. Hopefully, the story is as good as the covers.
Just One Duology by Gayle Forman
Another book that I bought in a book sale. I really need to stop doing that. I am not a huge fan of romance, but sometimes I craved for the insta love trope whenever I have read too many fantasy books. I also started reading a couple of pages while I was lining up at the cashier to check it out. It was good, and hopefully, I will be in the mood to read some romance.
Six of Crows Duology by Leigh Bardugo
If you have been around the book community, you know that this duology had made quite a buzz when it came out. I wanted to read it, and I saw these beautiful hardcovers with sprayed edges for a discounted price, and I bought it. But the only reason that I never picked it up is because some say that you need to pick up the Grisha trilogy first before diving into these books to understand the magic system. But I am still contemplating if I would want to read it or not. I would probably read it on my Kindle instead of buying the trilogy since I have heard mixed reviews about it.
Strange the Dreamer Duology by Laini Taylor
For someone who keeps on saying that they are a fan of Laini Taylor, I am ashamed to say that I never pick this up. I was over the moon when I heard about this duology, and I anticipated the release of the books. I bought the first one and wanted to wait for the second one before binge reading it. But it has been two years since the last book was released, and I have never picked it up. But 2020 is the year. I am reading the first book this month for the BuzzWordathon. So watch out for my review because I am surely posting it in January (or February🤣).
So that is all for my book catalogue series! Hopefully, by the end of 2021, I would manage to read and finish some of these series.
