The following books are in series with sequels published this year. They're also UKYA. Do let me know in comments which books/series I should look out for first because I'm really missing out...
Half Bad and Half Wild by Sally Green
I've heard somewhat mixed things about this series by Sally Green. Some rave about it ... and others find it not their thing at all. I kind of love marmite books, it always makes me really intrigued to see which side of the fence I'll fall. This series is about WITCHES which I think are pretty cool. We shall see.
The Rain and The Storm by Virginia Bergin
This series are post-apocalyptic and I really loved the premise of this killer rain ... but I never quite found my feet in the first book in the series. Hopefully with two books in the series that I could possibly read back-to-back, things might change? I'm not sure. Convince me.
Tribute and Outcaste by Ellen Renner
I remember being really excited about the sound of Tribute when I first heard of it last year ... and then I got my copy and I'm not sure what happened? I think maybe Tribute was a victim in that strange period of time when I was veering wildly between excitedly reading everything in sight and going through extended reading slumps! Still. I quite like the sound of this series and the gorgeous covers.
Stella and Siena by Helen Eve
I don't actually know that much about either of these books except that Stella was published last year and it had some good reviews. And Siena is the prequel story and it was published in January with some good reviews. I don't really want to know much more about these books as I am planning to read them soon and I absolutely adore it when I know next to nothing about a story before I read it!
Half A King and Half the World by Joe Abercrombie
This series is epic fantasy and at times I find myself a little wary of that sort of thing but I've heard really interesting things about these two books. There's lots of praise for this series and I can't wait to get stuck in!
Code Red Lipstick and Fashion Assassin by Sarah Sky
I'd love to get my hands on copies of these two books. It's a combination of fashion and spies which I think is just a winning combination. It kind of makes me happy just thinking about starting this series!
Love, Lies and Lemon Pies and Secrets, Schemes and Sewing Machines by Katy Cannon
And last but not least we have this series which looks to be quite sweet, contemporary stories with a dash of romance and baking. From what I gather, this series each features a story from one of the members of the Bake Club? I think it sounds fab.
Are there any series that looks good that you haven't yet started?
