All the Series I’m reading: Update #2

My last update is over a year old (click), so let’s see how I’m doing!

 

Series finished in 2019: 1 (Nevernight Trilogy by Katherine Arden)

winter

Uh, that is not very good! Only one series finished this year, whoops! It was a good one altogether, even though I thought book 3 was the weakest!

Series dropped: 1 (Daevabad Trilogy by S.A. Chakraborty)

kingdom

I was already on the edge here. I planned to read it this year but the fact that it kinda hints at a love triangle pisses me off. And I never liked the Ali character, so I dropped it for now. Sad, cause I really liked the setting and the female lead character. And Dara^^

Gosh, that is a LOT more than last year! Everything marked pink is what I’m on the edge about. I am not sure yet whether I want to drop them or not. I’m halfway through The Amber Spyglass for example and it just annoys me at that point? Why do we need all those new perspectives to start it off? I will make up my mind next year – if I don’t pick any of those up, that’ll probably be it.

  1. I say be ruthless and cut, cut, cut! Especially that Pullman fellow πŸ˜‰

    Glad the Watch series by Lukyanenko isn’t in doubt. I wish I could find more translated stuff by him (or stuff at all. Even finding out info is tough)

    1. WOAH. I was curious and looked up his bibliography in German and there are 3(!!) more Watch books after the 6th? Called The New Adventures of the Watch?

      He also wrote a book about a virtual reality adventure, 2 science fiction novels, started a series about a magician’s apprentice and has a couple other stand alones, as far as I can see.

      1. Ohhhh, MORE Watch books? Well, I guess I better start looking around!

        Stay away from the Virtual reality adventure one. I read it and it was atrocious! I think it was his first book but the translator didn’t do it any favors either. And yet I still gave it 3 stars πŸ˜€

        Well, I’m off to research the New Watch stuff. Thanks, I had NO idea there were more. Of course, we’ll see if any of them are in english :-/

  2. I looooved the first 4 Watch novels! But at this point I am not sure whether I want to re-read the whole thing.

    I read the German translations. He’s pretty popular in Germany and lots of his other works are translated. I was never too interested in anything else though.
