June 20, 2017 Topic: Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start But Haven’t (topic originally done March 2013) — anyone else have a mile long list of series to start like I do??
Yes! Oh man, I have so many series I want to start reading and so little time to read them all. I’m going to limit myself to ten for this list though. Because seriously there are so many good series out there….
Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start
- The Lunar Chronicles – A Sci-fi fairy tale retelling with cyber punk elements. This one sounds totally right up my alley. I’ll still surprised I haven’t read it yet.
- The Grisha Trilogy – I just finished reading Six of Crows for a summer book club and LOVED IT. I can’t believe that was my first introduction to Leigh Bardugo, and I can’t wait to read more books by her.
- The Maze Runner – My friends are split on this dystopian YA series. But it sounds right up my alley, so I want to give it a shot.
- Lorien Legacies – I Am Number Four has been on my TBR for a loooong time. But again people are really split on it, and since Micheal Bay raves about it I wasn’t quite sure I’d like it. Maybe it’s time to give it a chance though.
- Peter and the Starcatchers – My sister raves about these books, and I believe she’s read the whole series to my nephew. I have always been a big fan of Peter Pan and Neverland, and Dave Barry is a good writer too.
- Leviathan – As a fan of steam punk this has been on my TBR for a while, but I didn’t jump right on it because of Scott Westerfeld’s repetitiveness in the Uglies series. (I loved Uglies, but the fact that the plot kinda gets recycled in each following book soured me.) However a lot of my friends on Goodreads rave about Leviathan.
- Percy Jackson and the Olympians – I finally got my hand on a copy of The Lightning Thief, so maybe I will start this series soon. Again, it sounds right up my alley with Greek mythology and YA fantasy. (I haven’t watched the movies yet, but anything that Nathan Fillion is in can’t be half bad.)
- The Royal Circle – As a Historical Impersonator of Queen Anne Boleyn Tarnish has long been on my radar. The historical fiction books set in the Tudor court sound really good, even if they are not very accurate.
- The Great Library – It’s no secret that I love libraries. So a fantasy series centered around the idea that the Great Library of Alexandria surviving is interesting to say the least.
- Kingfountain – I keep hearing good things about this series (and the covers are amazing.) A dash of fantasy, mystery and a young Ender like main character on top of tons of great reviews makes this series sound more and more appealing.
Have you read of any these series? If I was going to start one tomorrow which one would you suggest I choose?
