Top 5 series I want to start
Well, this is more the top 5 series to pop in my head when I thought of this topic.
I’ve yet to read anything by N.K. Jemisin but when I do, I’d like to start with The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, the first novel in her Inheritance trilogy, which seems to be of the fantasy genre. I want to start with her fantasy stuff before going sci-fi.
Harwood Spellbook series
Lisa at Way Too Fantasy got me interested in Burgis’s Harwood Spellbook series — Snowspelled is the first book in this fantasy series. It sounds like something I’d really like.
Binti is the first novella in a sci-fi series of the same name by Nnedi Okorafor. So far, I’ve only read Okorafor’s Akata Witch, but I own a couple of her other books, including Binti, that I want to try too.
I really enjoyed Brent Weeks’s Night Angel trilogy and am craving more stories by him, so I’ll certainly read his Lightbringer books soon. They are fantasy novels and The Black Prism is the first book.
Gentleman Bastard series
I keep hearing great things about Scott Lynch’s Gentleman Bastard fantasy series, so of course, I want to read them too. The Lies of Locke Lamora is the first book.
