Top 5 (series I will start in 2023) Tuesday

I mean, really I could just as easily say all of them because it most certainly feels as though I’ll be wanting to start at least 20 series.. on top of the (at least) 20 series that I started in 2022. ANYWAY! Let’s go!!

Thank you ever so much to Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads for giving us this prompt, amongst so many others. To see which series she’s promised to start this year (but also no pressure) go look!

The Inheritance Games - Jennifer Lynn BarnesThe Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes (GR/SG) –

Avery Grambs has a plan for a better future: survive high school, win a scholarship, and get out. But her fortunes change in an instant when billionaire Tobias Hawthorne dies and leaves Avery virtually his entire fortune. The catch? Avery has no idea why — or even who Tobias Hawthorne is.

To receive her inheritance, Avery must move into sprawling, secret passage-filled Hawthorne House, where every room bears the old man’s touch — and his love of puzzles, riddles, and codes. Unfortunately for Avery, Hawthorne House is also occupied by the family that Tobias Hawthorne just dispossessed. This includes the four Hawthorne grandsons: dangerous, magnetic, brilliant boys who grew up with every expectation that one day, they would inherit billions. Heir apparent Grayson Hawthorne is convinced that Avery must be a conwoman, and he’s determined to take her down. His brother, Jameson, views her as their grandfather’s last hurrah: a twisted riddle, a puzzle to be solved. Caught in a world of wealth and privilege, with danger around every turn, Avery will have to play the game herself just to survive.

I have no idea if I’ll actually like this series or how much but it’s worth a try, right? I do want to get more into mysteries so I am definitely going to try this.

A Good Girl's Guide to MurderA Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson (GR/SG) –

The case is closed. Five years ago, schoolgirl Andie Bell was murdered by Sal Singh. The police know he did it. Everyone in town knows he did it.
But having grown up in the same small town that was consumed by the crime, Pippa Fitz-Amobi isn’t so sure. When she chooses the case as the topic for her final project, she starts to uncover secrets that someone in town desperately wants to stay hidden. And if the real killer is still out there, how far will they go to keep Pip from the truth … ?
I think I’ll just have to put a hold on this somewhere and whenever it comes in then I read it because there’s a lot of people wanting to read this. Hopefully that’s a good thing! I might pick up her newest book, Five Survive, and see how that is. I usually pick up mysteries/thrillers in audio because then it feels like a movie. But having just sampled the ebook and audiobook, I’m gonna read this as an ebook because I do like the look of all the mixed media – there’s FOOTNOTES?

A Curse so Dark and Lonely - Brigid KemmererA Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer by GR/SG) –

Fall in love, break the curse.

It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope. 
Nothing has ever been easy for Harper. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s instead somehow sucked into Rhen’s cursed world. 
Break the curse, save the kingdom.
A prince? A monster? A curse? Harper doesn’t know where she is or what to believe. But as she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what’s at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.
I am REALLY going to start this THIS year because I feel like (with so many series lol) that I keep promising to start them and then I just don’t.

All of us Villains - Amanda Foody, Christine Lynn HermanAll of Us Villains by Christine Lynn Herman and Amanda Foody (GR/SG) –

The Blood Moon rises. The Blood Veil falls. The Tournament begins.
Every generation, at the coming of the Blood Moon, seven families in the remote city of Ilvernath each name a champion to compete in a tournament to the death. 
The prize? Exclusive control over a secret wellspring of high magick, the most powerful resource in the world—one thought long depleted. 
This year, thanks to a salacious tell-all book, the seven champions are thrust into worldwide spotlight, granting each of them new information, new means to win, and most importantly: a choice: accept their fate or rewrite their story.
But this is a story that must be penned in blood.
Pro of reading this book this year – I already know a blogger friend really liked this book (Kal’s review) and whatever Kal recommends, I will definitely read! Another pro is that it’s a completed duology so I can immediately (or whatever immediately is for the second book to be loaned) read the second book afterwards.

Furyborn by Claire Legrand (GR/SG) –

The stunningly original, must-read fantasy of 2018 follows two fiercely independent young women, centuries apart, who hold the power to save their world…or doom it.

When assassinsambush her best friend, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing herself as one of a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light, and a queen of blood. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven elemental magic trials. If she fails, she will be executed…unless the trials kill her first.

One thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a fairy tale to Eliana Ferracora. A bounty hunter for the Undying Empire, Eliana believes herself untouchable–until her mother vanishes. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain and discovers that the evil at the empire’s heart is more terrible than she ever imagined.

As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world–and of each other.

I… have this as an arc and it is HIGH TIME that I get to it… so definitely this year! And now the series is completed which means I can just fly through all three! 

📚 🚀 📚
