Top Ten Tuesday, as always, is hosted at my other blog — The Broke & the Bookish
This week’s topic: Top Ten Series I’d Like To Start But Haven’t Yet
This could easily have been a list of 50. I tried to pick series that have been on my shelf for a while or were older because there are so many first books in a series that I’ve meant to pick up released in the last year!
1. Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo: Pretty much everyone I know has read and RAVES about this series.
2. Across the Universe by Beth Revis: I pre-ordered this bad boy when it came out and still it sits. I had really good intentions after I saw her at a Breathless Reads tour but here we are…
3. Graceling by Kristin Cashore: I’ve been wanting to get into fantasy and everyone says START HERE. I’ve had this on my shelf for years just because I had heard so much about it.
4. Cinder by Marissa Meyer: This one never interests me before it came out but the blogosphere started buzzing about it and everybody I know LOVES IT SO MUCH. It’s sitting here from the library and is a few days overdue…OOPSIE.
5. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead: My friends are going to start to disown me if I don’t read this soon.
6. Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersem: This came out around the same time as Vixen — another YA historical full of flappers — and I read and loved Vixen so I decided I’d wait and start BYT after a little so I didn’t compare them too much.
7. Blood Red Road by Moira Young: I bought this at a Borders closing sale because I was super intrigued by post-apocalyptic lit and heard great things. But soon it got lost in all the new books I bought. haha
8. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa: So much love for this series amongst bloggers and I even met her at BEA and she was delightful!
9. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: Seriously. I don’t know why I’ve waited so long!
10. The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde: I bought this like 5 years ago at a used book sale because I thought it sounded cool. Then I got on Goodreads and saw it was a very popular series and got excited. But then I went down the rabbit hole of Goodreads and found millions of other books to buy and this got neglected.
Also, *cough cough* Harry Potter & Divergent. Pleasedonotnoticethis.
