The 5 Oldest Book Series on my TBR… that I Still Want to Read ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿปย 

 ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป Hi, my loves!!! hope you’re having a wonderful day, full of the best readings! โค๏ธ Today, I’m here with a new post, where we’ll chat a bit about those book series that have been on my TBR the longest, but I still feel like reading them at some point. ๐Ÿ˜Š  I think I need to organize my TBR, like,โ€ฆ urgently, especially my physical TBR, so this post isn’t only a fun idea, but I hope it will help me as an incentive to finally read those books that have been on my shelves for the longest period of time. ๐Ÿ“š 
However, this time I’ve decided to focus on book series, be it trilogies or sagas, it doesn’t really matter, this post will be all about
those series that I own completed on my TBR, even though I haven’t even started them yet. I’m not proud of this, but when I feel like I could love a series or there’s a lot of hype around certain books and they’re all out (or so all of them) sometimes I have the urge to buy the complete set and binge-read them at some point, so that’s pretty much how each of these series has come into my life. ๐Ÿ˜… But now, I’ve started to think that it’s been too many years since their release dates, and while that’s not really an impediment for me to read a book, I feel it’s time to decide if I really want to read them, and the answer in general for these 5 series I bring you today is: YES! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป with each one I have different reasons, which I’ll detail in due time, but basically, I still feel quite a lot of urges to sit down and finally devour these very popular and much-loved series, plus I’m generally very curious to know if I’ll like them, and the fact that they’re so well known gives it a little plus, as I’m dying to bring you my thoughts about them to the blog once I read them. ๐Ÿ˜ 
I feel it will be a fun post to do, not only because I feel it will make me want to read these series even more, and not only because it’s a good way to organize myself, but also because I
would love to know your thoughts about them, so I hope you’re ready to share if you’ve loved or hated these series, I would love to know what side you are on and what’s in your mind, so don’t be shy! ๐Ÿฅฐ 
Finally, I hope you enjoy the post, and I invite you to do the same if you feel like it with your own older book series, I’d love to know which ones you haven’t read yet, but you’re dying to do it and why! ๐Ÿ’•
I LOVE you,
thank you so much for being there on the other side and for all the love always, now without further ado, let’s get started! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

โ€œIt can take years to mold a dream. It takes only a fraction of a second for it to be shattered.โ€

In a society steeped in tradition, Princess Liaโ€™s life follows a preordained course. As First Daughter, she is expected to have the revered gift of sightโ€”but she doesnโ€™tโ€”and she knows her parents are perpetrating a sham when they arrange her marriage to secure an alliance with a neighboring kingdomโ€”to a prince she has never met.

On the morning of her wedding, Lia flees to a distant village. She settles into a new life, hopeful when two mysterious and handsome strangers arriveโ€”and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assassin sent to kill her. Deception abounds, and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secretsโ€”even as she finds herself falling in love.

The Kiss of Deception is the first audiobook in Mary E. Pearson’s Remnant Chronicles

What I feel about this series is that I’ll really love the way the romance is portrayed, I have no reason other than the amazing reviews I’ve read about it, and I also really like how it promises that the reader doesn’t know who’s who among the male characters as you read it, and then you find out towards the end, I honestly LOVE that promise, as it allows you to relate to the character directly by the way they are, rather than by their title or where they come from. This also feels like a classic fantasy story where the main character grows a lot, so I’m really curious about the trilogy still.

โ€œHis hand glides down my arm, folds over my hand. His fingers lace with mine, palms kissing. I can feel the fast thud of his heart through this single touch.โ€

A hidden truth.
Mortal enemies.
Doomed love.

Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. But she longs for freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred tenet among her kind, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki, a descendant of dragons whose greatest defense is her secret ability to shift into human form.

Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings. The only bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irresistibly drawn to him, Jacinda knows Will’s dark secret: He and his family are hunters. She should avoid him at all costs. But her inner draki is slowly slipping away;if it dies she will be left as a human forever. She’ll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.

Mythical powers and breathtaking romance ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide.ย

What can I say about this gem so popular at the time, right? I really love dragons so the synopsis sounds like something I’ll like or at least enjoy, I don’t feel that in this case, it’s a trilogy that is going to mark me or be a 5 star, being honest, I would read it to have a good time, I think it could be one of those addictive series to read. I confess that I once read the first chapter of the first book and I liked it a lot, so I’m still willing to give it a try, what do you think?

โ€œDon’t feel bad for one moment about doing what brings you joy.โ€

Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill โ€“ the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …

Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

This series is still in progress, I think there are still a couple more books to be released, so technically I’m not too late with this one lol. It would be countless the number of people who have told me I should read this book, I know the main trilogy as such is extremely popular, both loved and hated in equal measures of intensity. I’ve read everything, from the best reviews to the most unpopular ones, so I think I have a pretty good idea of what I’m in for.
On the one hand, I think it might be an unpopular opinion for me since I don’t usually love the series that are so well known, but I can’t help but be curious, this is one of those cases where I really want to read it to chat about these books and finally have an opinion of my own about them. The hype is real, and many bloggers I love, love this series, so here I amโ€ฆ. almost ready to give it a chance!!!

โ€œOur belief is often strongest when it should be weakest. That is the nature of hope.โ€

The mists rule the night…
The lord ruler owns the world.


For a thousand years the ash fell.
For a thousand years, the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years, the Lord Ruler reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Every attempted revolt has failed miserably.

Yet somehow hope survives.
A new kind of uprising is being planned, one that depends on the cunning of a brilliant criminal mastermind and the courage of an unlikely heroine, a Skaa street urchin, who must learn to master Allomancy, the power of a mistborn.

What if the prophesied hero had failed to defeat the Dark Lord? The answer will be found in the Mistborn trilogy, a saga of surprises that begins here.

Another saga that is still in progress, I’ve heard the most amazing things and I’ve also seen for myself what an amazing author Brandon Sanderson is, so I’m more than excited to read this series, I own most of the books that have been released, obviously, I’ve been thinking that I should start reading them all at once, and I think the only thing holding me back with this one is the fact that they look a little intimidating. Still, from this whole list, I have a feeling this one it’s going to be a story I’ll absolutely love, so many bookish friends love it and keep talking about it, and that really keeps me always super excited to give it a chance, so I don’t have much more to say, just NEEDS TO HAPPEN!!!

โ€œWhy be the sheep when you can be the wolf?โ€

Enter the world of female assassins and join the daughters of Death in this first book of the New York Times best-selling His Fair Assassin series by Robin LaFevers. Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes a brutal arranged marriage into the sanctuary of a convent of assassins serving St. Mortain, the deity of death–but for a price. Perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas, Kristin Cashore, and Victoria Aveyard.

Why be the sheep when you can be the wolf?
 
 Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous giftsโ€”and a violent destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others.

     Ismaeโ€™s most important assignment takes her straight into the high court of Brittanyโ€”where she finds herself woefully under preparedโ€”not only for the deadly games of intrigue and treason, but for the impossible choices she must make. For how can she deliver Deathโ€™s vengeance upon a target who, against her will, has stolen her heart?

Another trilogy I’m really curious about since it seems to follow three different female characters and seems to have that girl power and character growth vibe, plus I’m dying to start a new fantasy series since it’s one of my favorite genres. I’ve also obviously read the best things about these books and I’m not sure, but I think there’s a new series in the same world or something, so it would be fun to try if this main trilogy is something I like. I’ve never read anything by the author but I know she’s quite loved, so I’m very curious!

  1. I have just read A court of Thorns and Roses and it was OK. I finished it but i’m not sure if I’m going to continue with the series yet. Mistborn is brilliant. Brandon Sanderson is such an amazing writer. I haven’t read any of the others in this post but they do look interesting.

    • I think ACOTAR is one of those series that is super polarized in opinions, and I think that’s one of the reasons I want to give it a chance. Still, if the first book doesn’t resonate with me, I don’t think it will compel me to read the rest. โ˜บ๏ธ
      I know I’ll love Mistborn!!! Brandon Sanderson is a brilliant author, the only reason I may not have started it, is that I’m intimidated by it being so many books lol, but I will definitely read it. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปโœจ

  2. Mistborn is on my list too ..!!! Iโ€™ve yet to finish any Sanderson book, so I hope I will one day.
    SJMโ€™s series is definitely fun if you havenโ€™t read any of her books before. I just feel that the more I read her books, the more repetitive everything feels. But A Court of Mist and Fury will probably always remain a favorite of mine ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
    And I definitely hope youโ€™ll enjoy the Remnant Chronicles. I adore the trilogy and the romance and the characters are so much fun. Iโ€™m sure youโ€™ll love it โ™ฅ๏ธ

    • I hope we love Mistborn! I’ve read Skyward by him and it’s an amazing story, I highly recommend it. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปโœจ
      That’s great!!! I really want to give her a real chance, because I’ve heard super mixed opinions regarding her books, but it will be interesting to see how I feel about it. โ˜บ๏ธ
      OMG, YAY!!! it makes me happy that you enjoyed the trilogy because it’s probably the one I’m most excited for. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

      • I remember buying Skyward last year.. I should probably read it someday ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
        And I really hope you love Remnant Chronicles as much as I did ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  3. I can vouch for The Mistborn era 1 series and the ACOTAR adored they both are amazing! Just remember ACOTAR is average at best and the series picks at least a 150 pages into the second book ACOMAF, I was close to giving up on the series but ACOMAF got me hooked!
    I have the Remnant chronicles on my TBR too and some series that Iโ€™ve had for a while and still wanna read would be The Red Rising Saga, The Raven Cycle, SoC and Stranger the Dreamer series

    • OMG!!! Your comment makes me so excited to finally decide and read both series. I know they’re super loved, so it will be interesting to see how I feel about them! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปโœจ
      Of the ones you mention, I highly recommend SoC & The Raven Cycle, both series have moments and characters that I LOVE, so I know you’ll enjoy them. โค๏ธ

  4. Its been a while, but I remember enjoying Grave Mercy and recommend checking it out bc the premise was really interesting! Ahh never finished the series though ๐Ÿ˜‚ I personally didn’t enjoy the Remnant Chronicles now that I look back and the last book felt sooo long. But I thought the romance was very interesting, I hope you enjoy it more than I did Sofii ๐Ÿ˜…<3

    • Oh, I started and haven’t finished many series yet, so that’s ok lol, glad you enjoyed the first book, can’t wait! ๐Ÿ˜
      Thank you SO much! I’m intrigued to know how I’ll feel about these series, as I know they’re very popular, so we’ll see what happens. โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปโœจ

  5. This is a great post!! ๐Ÿ˜ And you have so many good options here… I am not going to recommend ACOTAR, but I am strongly recommending His Fair Assassin, it’s quite good and easy to read. I have Mistborn as well on my TBR (one day) and I am now super intrigued by The Remnant Chronicles!!

  6. I still haven’t finished the A Court of Thorns and Roses series either. I have the 2nd book at home just waiting to be read but I never seem to be able to pick it up. I always find something else to read. Here’s hoping we can both get to it eventually!

    • Your words describe me completely! ๐Ÿ˜… I feel like there’s really no other reason not to read these books or finish series other than to distract myself with other reading or new releases.
      Same! I hope we both enjoy it and have a wonderful day! โค๏ธ

    • I’m glad that still several of us haven’t read them, I thought I’d be the only one since they were so popular at the time!!! ๐Ÿ˜…
      The Graceling was really popular too, sadly I didn’t enjoy the first book, so I never finished the trilogy, but I know it’s super loved, so I hope it works for you once you read it! โค๏ธ

  7. I love this post idea, Sofii!! ๐Ÿ’• I actually started the ACOTAR series but I somehow didn’t continue after book 2, despite having a lot of fun with it ๐Ÿ˜… I have the third book sitting on my shelf for years, but I haven’t felt compelled to pick it up yet. I also love the His Fair Assassin series, I hope you end up reading it someday ๐Ÿฅฐ

      His Fair Assassin sounds really good! I can feel the girl power in that series ๐Ÿ˜

  8. Great post, I also have a habit of buying a full series of it is all out to binge read and then taking forever to actually read it. I really need to finish the Mistborn series as I have read and loved the first two books ๐Ÿ’œ

    • I swear the same thing happens to me, I don’t know what’s so exciting about buying the whole series, but there really is something there that I love. ๐Ÿ˜‚โœจ

  9. I have so many older series on my TBR that I have not read yet, but still want to. The plus side to that is that we donโ€™t have to wait for new books to come out each year for the series, because they are all already out haha. I have the Remnant Chronicles on my list too. I started reading the Mistborn series and never finished it, so I definitely need to do that ASAP because the first book was sooooo good. Hopefully we finally get to read these soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • YES! that’s the brilliant side of buying the whole series at once!!! now I just have to commit and read them ๐Ÿ˜…
      OMG, I keep hearing how good the Mistborn series is, I know I’ll love it, so I have no excuses, I’m a little intimidated because it’s a lot of books, but if the story is good I know I won’t mind! ๐Ÿ˜
      YES!!! 2022 will be the year we’ll catch up with our series! *fingers crossed* ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
