When I read sequels to books I love, I like to binge them. Ideally this happens after a reread of the previous books to refresh the details. My hectic schedule during uni doesn’t allow much binge reading time so usually these all get pushed to the end of the year.
That time is NOW.
I’m excited. There are so many series I need to catch up in. I will no longer have to live in fear of spoilers!
Of course, this is counting on me actually reading. I have been distracted by video games a lot recently (once I finish the main game it’s less addicting) and do have some real world commitments. Hopefully I can get most of these in. Otherwise I’m in trouble with my Goodreads reading goal!
I’m behind in a fair few big series, but there are four that I really do want to catch up on (mostly because I’m afraid that I won’t be able to successfully avoid spoilers for much longer)
Vengeance Road & Retribution Rails
These are going to be the easiest to binge I reckon! VENGEANCE ROAD was incredibly fast paced. I can’t wait to reread the action and then see what’s next with RETRIBUTION RAILS. With any luck the plot will be just as fast and engaging as the first book.
Six of Crows & Crooked Kingdom
I’m a bit terrified of this one. I know the feels are going to hit me hard. SIX OF CROWS had me so attached to the characters, and it’s only going to intensify on reread. I’m rereading to remember all the small details of the plot before jumping head first into CROOKED KINGDOM.
Empire of Storms & Tower of Dawn
I briefly toyed with the idea of rereading the entire Throne of Glass series before reading TOWER OF DAWN (it’s what I usually do with each new book) but I unfortunately don’t have the time. So a lone EMPIRE OF STORMS reread to remind me of all the emotional turmoil I experience it shall be, before further destroying my feeling sin TOWER OF DAWN.
ACOMAF & ACOWAR
Yeah, I’m surprised I’m behind on the Maas novels, being the SJM trash that I am. But I just had to binge them and I’m incredibly scared. I don’t want my precious characters to be hurt. As much as I loved ACOTAR, I decided not to add a reread of the first book into the mix because a) time and b) why go back to the original Spring Court (before Plot Things happened and changed Tamlin) when you can spend 80% of the book with Rhys?
Other possibilities depending on time and such:
- Truthwitch and Windwitch
- Walk on Earth a Stranger and Like a River Glorious
- Nevernight and Godsgrave
Wish me luck!
I feel like if I was more organised this could easily be turned into some sort of readathon. But I am not that forward thinking ha. If you wish to join me in this month long binge session (or whenever you’re free), please feel free! Let me know all about your reading progress on Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram.
