We all know how it goes. Every time a new book is released it gets added to our TBR list, and then it can take us months, or even years in some cases, to get around to reading it.

However every review I’ve read says that the series improves with the second, third and fourth books. A lot of people seem to be really excited for the fifth book so I’d like to have the first four read by the time it’s released in September.
