The Great Series Read Project

A pair of burgundy boots rest on a bookshelf of fantasy novels

This page is dedicated to tracking my progress on The Great Series Read Project, and lists the series I’ll be tackling ordered by author surname (click on a shortcut above to jump to surnames beginning with that letter). Given it’s nature, this is a list that can only grow each year as more series join the ranks of the beloved but incomplete…

A note on formatting:

  • Books still to be read are in bold
  • Books read and reviewed will be linked
  • Books read but not yet reviewed will be in plain text
  • A Series Shout-out is a non-spoilery introduction to the series, giving an overview of what to expect and why I hold this series so dear

If you fancy joining me in a buddy read for any outstanding series, get in touch!
