The Great Series Read Project Launch Part 2: Electric Bookaloo


Evening bookwyrms. The more discerning among you may have realised it’s been two months since I posted part one of my Great Series Read Project launch. My commitment to blogging just ain’t what it used to be apparently. Nevertheless, the tortoise beats the hare and all that, so you can all let out that breath you didn’t realise you’d been holding cos here’s the long-awaited follow up. The majority of these are books I’m working my way through for the first time; the only exception is A Song of Ice and Fire, which is a re-read. I did also have books two and three of Anna Stephens’ Godblind trilogy and the rest of The Passage books on here originally, but honestly I have no intention of ever returning to those series. Which is rare for me, but Godblind just didn’t hold my attention and I thought The Passage was actually one of the worst books I’ve ever read, so this could be a sign I’m getting better at not continuing with stuff I don’t like. The idea of the Great Series Read project originated with Caitlin from Realms Of My Mind, and the way I’m doing it the idea is to read at least one book a month from one of these series. And yes, that means I’ll probably finish them all around the time of the heat death of the universe, but I maintain that the tortoise beats the hare. Anyway, the show must go on, so here to peruse at your leisure are the remainder of the many, many series I’m currently in the middle of. Enjoy 🙂

    1. I’m curious about how I’ll feel after finishing book 3. I’m still underwhelmed but The Dragon Republic was a markedly better book than The Poppy War, so the jury is still out.

    1. That was my issue with it precisely. A lot of gross violence stood in for any kind of compelling characters. Plot was pretty good, but again fell flat cos I didn’t care about any of the characters. Spent a lot of the book just thinking about how graphic violence isn’t inherently interesting.

  1. Congrats and good luck on your project! I started something similar almost a year ago … I should check back on it but I need to work up some more courage!

    1. It’s kind of absurd that just finishing the series I’ve already got on the go will probably take years haha. Trying just to read stand-alones and short story collections in between, but luckily there’s also plenty of those to enjoy 😃
