Let's take a look at just my recent reading. I am rereading Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. Technically, this is a large series. I have never read on in it, but one day may plan to. Then, I finally am reading A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. It's a great book, but there are three sequels out now and a fourth out in a few days. For the Once Upon a Time challenge, I finished The Tawny Man Trilogy by Robin Hobb. Then, I turned around and started The Farseer Trilogy by her. I had intended to read this trilogy in a row, but I can't locate my copy of the second book. So, I am stalled. Oh, yes, and I am also reading Dune by Frank Herbert, which is the first in a series. My friend said she read it and wasn't inspired to read on in the series, but we will see what happens.
With this in mind, I really want to finish some series to alleviate stress. In my vlog the other day I held up The Charnel Prince by Gregory Keyes. This is the second book in his series. I also held up the third book in The Black Jewels Trilogy. Yes, I am aware that this is one of those series that started off as a trilogy and is now a series, but I would at least like to finish the original trilogy that has been on the go pretty much as long as I have been blogging. I didn't hold the book up, but another book I really want to read is the final book in Sara Douglass' recent trilogy. I was so excited about it, but still haven't read it. I just know that when I finish, I am going to want to go back and read her other books finally.
I also have resumed using the library a bit. I had been slacking off as of late, but I requested the sequel to Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld. I also meant to buy that, but still haven't. I requested the sequel to Shiver and her other series I requested Ballad.
The thing is I would also like to read on in Jack Whyte's Camulod Series, read more Terry Goodkind, finally get back to reading Naomi Novik, read the last two books in Melissa Marr's series, finish Kelley Armstrong's young adult trilogy so I can read her new book, read some more Charles de Lint, read some more of the Morganville Vampire series by Rachel Caine, read the sequel to Charmed Life by Diana Wynne Jones, get back to Dragonlance, and the list goes on and on. I will probably only get to some of this over the rest of the year and then I will likely start even more series in the process. It is just on-going, and yes, it stresses me out to have so many started and not finished projects.
What do you think about series/trilogies?
