Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is
Top Ten Series I’d Like to Start But Haven’t Yet.
I’m actually not sure I can keep this to a mere 10 series, but I’ll try! In no particular order, I want to read:
The Queen’s Thief series, by Megan Turner Whalen. I’ve dipped into the first book and the third, and I am really impressed and intrigued. I just need to set aside the time.
The Temeraire series by Naomi Novik. My daughter loves these, and I love the premise: alternate history set around the time of the Napoleonic Wars, with each side commanding a dragon air force.
The Sevenwaters series by Juliet Marillier. I’ve had these on my shelves — in beautiful hardcovers, yet — for several years. I read the first one almost 15 ago, so technically, they shouldn’t be on this list. But I’ve forgotten so much of it that I would have to start at the beginning again.
The Fairyland series by Catherynn M. Valente. These have been tempting me for a while.
The Graceling trilogy by Kristin Cashore. Almost everyone seems to think these are really wonderful. I need to find out what all the fuss is about.
The Fire and Thorns series by Rae Carson. I’ve heard really good things about these, too.
The Etiquette & Espionage series by Gail Carriger. These just look like fun!
The Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde. I loved the humor in Fforde’s The Last Dragonslayer (reviewed here). I’m really looking forward to seeing what he’s done with this series for adults.
The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan. I have to admit, I’ve been trying to hold out until the series is completed. Especially after hearing about book 3’s cliffhanger ending. But I’m definitely looking forward to reading them!
The Lunaterre Chronicles by Melina Marchetta. I’ve had Finnikin of the Rock sitting on my TBR shelves downstairs for over a year now. One of these days, I’ll find time to read it.
The Wishcraft Mysteries by Heather Blake. I really enjoyed her Lucy Valentine series (light paranormal mystery/romance written under the name Heather Webber), so I expect I’ll enjoy these, too.
I couldn’t quite keep it down to 10! I could have added several more, but these are probably the top 11. Which series do you think I should start first? And what series are on your want-to-read list?
