TOP TEN TUESDAY
October 21, 2014
It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic: Top Ten Series I Want To Start
So wait. Really quick: FLASHBACK to the 3/5/13 Top Ten Tuesday post where I listed which series I wanted to start soon. I remembered doing a series post and I wanted to go back and see which ones I had listed. I only remember exactly two series — one which I hadn’t started yet (Mara Dyer) and one which I had actually started and finished (Daughter of Smoke and Bone) so I wanted to see which other series I had on that list! Did I finish any of the other series I wanted to start? Had I even started them? Well the short answer is… NO. Out of all of the series listed, I started exactly ONE other one (and DNFed the book). Sigh. SO I will redo this list in entirety because I’m not exactly super keen on starting some of the ones previous listed. Not that I don’t want to read them, but others seem to be more pressing!
Then I went through my Goodreads list and I just have so many series on there… Then finally decided there is no better place to go than my bookcase!
SEVENWATERS – JULIET MARILLIER
I may have never picked this book up but Juliet Marillier is one of my bestie’s (Alyssa‘s) favorite authors EVER. She actually bought me the first book in this series — DAUGHTER OF THE FOREST — and like the bad friend that I am, I still haven’t started it! But I did make a promise to start it in 2015! I think it’s good that I’ve waited for so long because I wasn’t as into fantasy UNTIL this year so hopefully I will be reading it at just the right time!
THE WORLDWALKER TRILOGY – JOSEPHINE ANGELINI
TRIAL BY FIRE honestly sounds like something I would love…. so why haven’t I started this yet!? Well actually, I did start it but barely and then I didn’t have the time to continue yet. I really enjoyed the… 20 or so pages that I read so far! I really want to continue sometime soon!
ZODIAC – ROMINA RUSSELL
Well, this is embarrassing. I went to go look this one one up to see what the series name was and it’s not listed as a series! Maybe it’s too new? Maybe it’s a stand alone? Someone can educate me on this! 😀
UNRAVELING – ELIZABETH NORRIS
I’ve had my eye on this book for a long time but was never really sure what it was about… I finally bought a copy when I met Elizabeth Norris at an event and it sounded so good! It’s also only a two book series so I could definitely knock out this series if I really enjoy it!
SCARLET – A.C. GAUGHEN
This is another book/series about which I have heard nothing but good things! Alyssa also bought me this book so I really, REALLY need to start reading the books she buys me! There are reasons why she loves them!
THE GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS – RAE CARSON
I have heard soooo many good things about this one too. Again, it took me a while to really get into fantasy because I was figuring out what kinds of things I enjoyed reading within the genre and this one hasn’t come into the rotation yet. Now that the series is finished, I shouldn’t have any excuses!
STEELHEART – BRANDON SANDERSON
I am now apparently obsessed with Brandon Sanderson thanks to my read of the Mistborn trilogy/series (thank you, Nikki. Sarcastically but also so, so seriously.) I actually had the ARC from forever ago and then Amy — having found out about my new Sanderson obsession which she also revels in — bought me a copy of STEELHEART! Now I cannot WAIT to get into more Sanderson! (And also the Stormlight Archive.)
HOURGLASS – MYRA McENTIRE
Again. Crazy Brittany. Not reading series she’ll probably love! this sounds right up my alley. Just shame shame shame.
SERAPHINA – RACHEL HARTMAN
I actually borrowed this book from the library and didn’t have enough time to read it! Now that book two is coming out, I think Alyssa, Amy, and I are planning to read book one together! Me for the first time and re-reads for them!
THESE BROKEN STARS – AMIE KAUFFMAN & MEAGAN SPOONER
Yet ANOTHER series that has gotten so much love and that I just haven’t started yet. I cannot waaaaiiiitttttt!
So what do you say!? Which of these series should I start first? Which are the most important ones! I really need to start of these this year!
