16 Completed YA Series You Can Totally Binge Right Now

Posted by Marie on November 26, 2018


Biding your time for the next book in a series can be a true test of patience, especially when the release date could fall anywhere between "probably next year" to "eh, whenever."

Needless to say, the wait can be agonizing.

Maas' epic Throne of Glass series to Veronica Roth's Carve the Mark duology, these are the series you can now devour in one go. No waiting necessary!

Anna Ooh cool!


message 13: by Patrick (new)

Patrick Falling Kingdoms is a great series!


message 14: by Rose (new)

Rose I wish instead having the first lines, it was more of a "if you like these things" kind of intro. First lines dont tell you sh*t about a series lol


message 15: by Michael (Mai) (new)

Michael (Mai) I just started The Confectioner's Guild.


message 16: by Jess (new)

Jess I’d add the Lunar Chronicles!


message 17: by Daphne (new)

Daphne If you click on the link underneath Red Queen, the link leads to Sarah J. Mass's Throne of Glass series.

This is the link that was put instead of the one about the Red Queen series: https://www.goodreads.com/interviews/...

It didn't finish this year, so it doesn't qualify for this list.


storytime-reviews Definitely going to need to add some of these to my TBR!


message 20: by Reneé (new)

Reneé Booth Strange the dreamer immediately and the frostblood saga perhaps next


message 21: by HPAAG (new)

HPAAG HIGHLY RECOMMEND THRONE OF GLASS!!! Going to read the Conqueror's Saga soon. Would add the Worldwalker series

That series didn't conclude this year though, which is why they're not on this list.

Thank you Janine for all of these recc's!

This is the kind of comment I'm here for, point me towards books unknown!

:D


message 24: by Amber (new)

Amber I've just started on The Throne of Glass series and am still working on the Alice in zombieland series by Gena showalter and more.

Why thank you! I know a lot of books that aren't published by the Big 5 get lost (even smaller traditional publishers) so I like to increase exposure.


message 26: by LaiyneBug1692 (new)

LaiyneBug1692 I FREAKING LOVE THE THRONE OF GLASS!! IT IS AMAZING! If you go to the book you will see that a person named, DORIAN, wrote a review on it, It goes against my LOVING THE BOOK!! but I strongly recommend that you read it it's Fantabulous.


message 27: by Bia (new)

Bia Damn it all I want is for my exams to end so that I can binge read without guilt!


message 28: by Nyssa (new)

Nyssa I love the idea of this blog post and would appreciate seeing "Bingable" series from other genres as well.

Didn't finish this year, finished in 2016, which is why it's not on the list either.

Me, too! That is a great series that now has a spin-off book.


message 31: by Robin (last edited Dec 11, 2018 08:15AM) (new)

Robin The Protector Project series by Jenna Lincoln


message 32: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth King YES, everyone should read the Conquerer's Saga. That trilogy does not get enough praise. It's amazing. Aside from being alternate history, it's not really "fantasy" - there's no magic or anything. The historical aspects are great though, and Lada is such a great, uncompromising protagonist.

Strange the Dreamer is also really good, haven't read the sequel yet.

I'll definitely be trying Falling Kingdoms and Clare's latest trilogy now that they're both complete, decided to wait on both of those when they first started coming out. Marie Lu is always worth a read as well, so I'll be checking out Warcross.


message 33: by Jess (new)

Jess Adlington The Iron Fey
by Julie Kagawa 7 books


message 34: by Melanie (new)

Melanie Daughter of Smoke and Bone series by Laini Taylor!


message 35: by Luna (new)

Luna Phoenix Great job! I finished the Throne of Glass series, I am reading the Queen of Air and Darkness, I need to read the second book of the War Cross series, and of course, I finished the Fates Divide. All in all, 2018 has been a good year of reading for me :)


message 36: by Catherine (new)

Catherine Here I thought I was doing well and shortening my TBR list, haha.


message 37: by Mallory (new)

Mallory I thought Warcross was going to be a trilogy!
