Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey at Gingerreadslainey. Every week, book reviewers all over the world are given a bookish topic and respond with their top 5 books (or elements of books) that relate to that topic.

This week’s Top 5 Wednesday topic is the top five series you want to start next year. I have only recently realized just how massive my series/trilogies TBR is. I tend to read a lot of standalone novels, and I have not actually completed all that many series or trilogies in my lifetime so far. But this shall no longer be the case! I am hereby declaring 2016 the year of series reading!
Because my TBR is so long, I decided to do a bit of a twist on today’s topic. Since it was impossible to narrow things down enough, I essentially decided I should make two different top five lists: one of the top five series and one of the top five trilogies I want to read during the course of 2016!
Most of these are series that I intended to read in 2015 and never got around to starting (yes, I did indeed fail quite epically!).
5. The Seven Realms Series by Cinda Williams Chima
4. The Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas
3. The Raven Cycle Quartet by Maggie Stiefvater
2. The Mistborn Series by Brandon Sanderson
1. The A Song of Ice and Fire Series by George R.R. Martin
Again, many of these are trilogies I wanted to, and subsequently failed to get started on in 2015. I am determined to get going on, if not to finish, a good amount of these trilogies in the new year.
5. The Darkest Minds Trilogy by Alexandra Bracken
4. The Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy by Laini Taylor
3. The Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness
2. The Shattered Sea Trilogy by Joe Abercrombie
1. The Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children Trilogy by Ransom Riggs
Honorable Mention: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy by J. R. R. Tolkien
This is an honorable mention because I am not sure that I will be able to make it to this trilogy before the end of the year. I do intend to read The Hobbit in 2016, and to at least finally begin watching the movies. I am hoping, though, that I will be able to make it through at least The Fellowship of the Ring!
What series are you guys planning to read in 2016? Let me know in the comments!
