I hope you all had a super awesome Easter weekend, and if you don’t celebrate Easter then I hope you had a good weekend!
So A Court of Wings and Ruin (ACOWAR) comes out in like, 2 freakin weeks. I’M SO EXCITED!!!! I am super worried that the court of dreams won’t make it through but I am trying desperately to tuck that fear away. I just want Tamlin to die…is that a bad thing to wish? It feels kinda wrong, but the guy is a MASSIVE douche.
In anticipation of the end of the ACOTAR trilogy, I therefore thought I would list a few of my favourite trilogies. I wanted to put ACOTAR on the list…but then I thought, what if the last book is rubbish? And while it is 99.9% probably not going to be, I don’t want to risk it. So, here is a count down of my favourite trilogies…minus ACOTAR.
P.S – All titles have been linked to book depository
This series really opened me up to the dystopian genre (and probably a thousand authors as well if you look at the amount of dystopian novels that came out after this series). You know what annoys me? Ok so I bought the first book because I didn’t want to buy the whole trilogy if I didn’t want to go past the first book. Well, I did want to go past the first and therefore ended up settling for a different cover version for the second book and then the original version for the first and third book. NOT COOL. So now I have a choppy trilogy which does not look pretty 😦
Whilst I felt that this series didn’t finish exactly, I still loved this series. I loved Karou and Akiva and the characters/world Laini created. She really is a wonderful story-teller and I absolutely cannot wait to start Strange the Dreamer.
I will forever put these books on pretty much every (good) list, because I loved this series SO MUCH! I don’t always love love-triangles, however I honestly believe this series has one of the best love-triangles I have ever read. Will and Jem are just little sweeties, they are the ultimate book boyfriends. Love her or hate her, Cassandra Clare has put together a nice little mythical world for us!
I just did a lovely little rave about this series a couple of weeks back. I started reading the whole series once A Conjuring of Light came out, which I usually prefer because then I don’t go through so much inner turmoil as I have with *cough, cough* ACOTAR. This series is magic, and stabbiness and pirates (well, a wannabe pirate anyway). If I had a patronus, it would be Delilah Bard.
This series absolutely BLEW MY MIND. Words cannot describe how much I loved this series, I still feel like I haven’t fully comprehended everything that happened. I need to re-read this series again soon because I am pretty sure I missed sooooo many things. If you love dystopian and haven’t read this series yet, please DO SO IMMEDIATELY. You won’t regret it. Believe me!!!!!
Well there you have it, that is my list of favourite trilogies, though with Nevernight, Illuminae and ACOWAR coming out over the next year I will most likely have a new favourites list (maybe). Will Red Rising stay at number 1? Who knows!!
Are any of these trilogies in your favourites list? Or on the other hand, do you hate any of the trilogies I have listed?
