I have a rather large to-read pile of books at home, and I won’t get through them for a while, but there are some books I really want to add to my collection. I could buy eBooks, but I want the physical book. I’m that kind of book collector. Here’s a look at some books I absolutely must have.
The Stormlight Archive series
This is a highly rated series of books, and only two books of the eventual ten book series have been released. Brandon Sanderson seems to be the hottest fantasy author at the moment. Books in the series include The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance.
The Kingkiller Chronicle series
This series by Patrick Rothfuss is a highly rated series that has two books published so far. They are The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear. What I like about the author is that he interacts with his readers.
The Riyria Revelations trilogy
Michael J. Sullivan’s Riyria series is another fantasy series that I really want to get into. He’s also another author who is easy to get in touch with, and I interviewed him last year on this blog. The first in his series is Theft of Swords.
Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn series is his first novel series, and also highly regarded. And it’s not finished. It appears to be planned for six books, with the fifth due this year and sixth next year. The first book is Mistborn: The Final Empire.
My first science fiction series in this list is Lois McMaster Bujold’s incredibly long fifteen volume (so far) Vorkosigan Saga. The first book in the series is Shards of Honour. Later novels have won both Nebula and Hugo Awards.
There’s more. But these are my absolute top priority series to buy. What would you suggest?
