For many of us, summer is the perfect time to get a little extra reading in. Maybe you’re headed to the beach or the pool, or perhaps you just have a little extra time at home and hope to turn a few pages. Are you looking to burn through an entire series (or a few) this summer? After all, you might not want to be left hanging mid-summer when you realize the next book won’t publish for months. Never fear. We’re here to help. Here are a few complete YA series (new and old) that we recommend. All of these books are out and waiting for your enjoyment!
Note: My favorites are sci-fi and fantasy, and this list reflects that. I made note if the author is writing more series based in the world they created in the ones listed below. It will be fun to know there is more to come if it’s something you like!
Six of Crows
The Wrath and the Dawn
Red Rising (Another series is being written in this world.)
The Winner’s Curse
Shadow and Bone (Six of Crows, above, is written in this world.)
Across the Universe
Daughter of Smoke and Bone
The Infernal Devices (Cassandra Clare’s shadowhunter world is always ongoing.)
The Raven Boys
The Lunar Chronicles
Seven Realms (Shattered Realms, below, is also written in this world, but I recommend reading this one first.)
So I know this sub-category doesn’t fit with the title of this post, but if none of the Young Adult books above interest you or if you have already read them all, here are some fascinating reads outside of the YA realm.
Shades of Magic
The Queen of the Tearling

Do you have any recommendations for books or series with a similar aesthetic or style to The Raven Cycle? I love the author’s writing, the character-driven aspects of it, and the friendship group, but I can’t seem to find anything similar.
Have you read Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows duology? It’s a different genre & storyline (high fantasy; pulling off a big heist), but the character-driven aspects are there and are equally well-written as those in The Raven Cycle. I would also give Stiefvater’s other books a try. Besides The Raven Cycle, I’ve only read The Scorpio Races. But I thought it was EXCELLENT! Her voice is so unique.
You should add Throne of Glass. Have you read it? It’s awesome
