So I have a few books and book series’ that I’ve read multiple times in the past but I know I will never review them. They are the books that will always be on my shelf waiting for me to re-read them again when the urge strikes. Below I list a few of said books and series. If you feel like doing this too then by all means, I would love to see what other people choose.
I’ve only read up to book six (Tempted) in this series and I didn’t realise how many more books there are after it. This is an average series about vampires which focuses a lot on the spiritual side of magic. I haven’t read these book since I was in school (five years ago).
2. The Morganville Vampires Series by Rachel Caine
- Glass Houses
- The Dead Girls Dance
- Midnight Alley
- Feast of Fools
- Lord of Misrule
- Carpe Corpus
- Fade Out
- Kiss of Death
- Ghost Town
- Bite Club
- Last Breath
- Black Dawn
- Bitter Blood
- Fall of Night
Again I haven’t finished reading this series just because it is so long. I have read up to book ten (Bite Club) and I do own the next two in the series but still haven’t read them. I had the urge to read Glass Houses again a few weeks ago so this series has made it on to my TBR Shelf. Rachel Caine also has a new book that I wouldn’t mind reading called Ink and Bone which I’ve heard some good things about so I might give that a try too.
3. The Study Series by Maria V. Snyder
My sister introduced me to this series more than a few years ago and I recently re-read it. I enjoyed it just as much as I did in the past when I first read it. If you haven’t read these books yet then you’re seriously missing out.
4. The Graceling Realm by Kristin Cashore
Another series my sister introduced me to a few years ago. I loved the first book, not so much the second\prequel (Fire). It took me a long time to get around to reading Bitterblue, which I read last year, and I don’t know why it took me so long. I’m so glad I did read it though and it turned out to be my most favourite read of 2014. (I’m open to the idea of reviewing this series)
5. The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
- City of Bones
- City of Ashes
- City of Glass
- City of Fallen Angels
- City of Lost Souls
- City of Heavenly Fire
Yet another series I haven’t finished. I feel as if I talk about this series a lot on this blog (sorry, not sorry) but in this series I have read up to book four and haven’t continued yet. I tried reading City of Glass not two days ago but Clary was really annoying me. She sounds really spoiled at the beginning of this book but I remember really enjoying City of Glass when I first read it. I’m going to have to try again. My sister brought me the first book in this series for Christmas one year and I remember sitting and re-reading it as I waited for the next books in the series to come in the post, it being the Christmas period it took a long time.
- Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone
- Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
- Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
- Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
- Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
No list of mine is complete without mention of Harry Potter. Of course I will never ever get rid of these books. They were such a huge part of my childhood and without these books I don’t know how I would have got through secondary school. I am currently trying to re-read these as we speak actually. Of course I have no plans to review them but I haven’t read them in years outside of fanfiction.
Well there you have it all of the series’ that are on my shelves that I keep because I love them. In some cases I know they aren’t very good books but there is a special place in my heart for these books and I don’t think I will ever throw or give any of these away (plus the fact that some of them are my sisters).
Until next time,
