Born of Illusion series by Teri Brown — I love it when authors can convincingly intermix historical eras/events with the fantastical. And this is about Houdini and magicians.
Of Metal and Wishes series by Sarah Fine — A Phantom of the Opera retelling taken in new historical and cultural directions? That's all I need to know.
Just One Day duology by Gayle Forman — I feel as though I may be unfairly prejudiced against Forman after not loving If I Stay. I want to give her a second chance by reading her newer series.
Cormoran Strike series by Robert Galbraith — No matter how uninterested I am in the subject matter of this series, it's written by J.K. Rowling and so will get read eventually.
The Young Elites series by Marie Lu — The Legend series grew on me over time, and I love the premise of Lu's newest series. I'm hoping that no adjustment period will be necessary here.
Blackthorn and Grim trilogy by Juliet Marillier — I haven't read anything new by Marillier in years. Here's to fixing that problem with her latest historical fantasy series.
All Our Pretty Songs trilogy by Sarah McCarry — I desperately want to read this modern, feminist retelling of the "Orpheus and Eurydice" myth.
Not a Drop to Drink duology by Mindy McGinnis — I have high hopes that this post-apocalyptic story will be as refreshing an addition to this genre for me as it has been for so many other readers.
The Colours of Madeleine series by Jaclyn Moriarity — I love how whimsical this series sounds! Seriously, sentient colors?
Reboot duology by Amy Tintera — I really like the premise of this duology. Even more, I like that this is a duology.
What newer series are you hoping to start soon?
