Series TBR:2016

I am one of those people that can never finish a monthly TBR pile because I always get distract by new books. It`s a bad habit, I know, but as long as I do my reading, it`s not that harmless I guess. This year, however, I made a list of all the popular series that I have not read and decided to take drastic measures. Do you know how people look at me when I tell them I have not read Harry Potter? I suddenly feel like a witch in the sixteenth century.

There are many reasons why I have not read some of these books. One might be that in the past I preferred the classics or contemporary books, and I started reading fantasy only this year. Also, when I was little Harry Potter books were ridiculously expensive in Romania (considering the average salary) and my library had only 1 set, which was always borrowed. After I moved to London and got a job, money was no longer a problem, so I was able to buy the books that I wanted. But a tiny voice in my head was whispering: you`re too old for these. Silly, I know. You`re never too old to enjoy a good book, and that`s what I plan to do in the future. So here are the books that I`ll be reading this year, fingers crossed!

The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
Percy Jackson & The Olympians by Rick Riordan
The Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare (currently at book 4)
A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin (currently at book 3)

I will make another post that will include trilogies because I have quite a lot of them on my TBR. If I combine all of them, I`ll probably be able to read only half, but it`s better to have an ambitious list than to set small goals. Also, I`m a TV junkie, and I love The Vampire Diaries and True Blood, but are the books any good? I`m debating whether to read them or not, so let me know if they`re any good.
