Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday #30

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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.)
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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?

I keep hearing how great The Lunar Chronicles are, which is why it topped my list this week. Thanks for stopping by!

The Percy Jackson books are so so good (the movies are pure garbage), I hope you enjoy them! I liked The Maze Runner, not my favourite series ever but very fast, enjoyable reads. The Great Library books are pretty awesome, the first is better than the second, but they’re both really good. I had the Grisha trilogy on my list this week too. I’ve read the first Lunar Chronicles but still need to read the rest.

Thanks for the insight. There are so many series’ out there its hard to know where to start.

Thank for checking out my blog.Glad to hear we share so many TBR books. Thats always a good sign.

The Lunar Chronicles SHOULD have been on my list too. Those books have been on my shelf for too long, not to mention blogging friends have recommended them over the years. Someday… 🙂

Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland!

Someday… yeah I agree, if only they’d stop coming out with great new books right 😉 . My TBR list only grows and grows.

I have just finished the Grisha trilogy and really liked it. I didn’t love it as much as Six of Crows, but Alina really develops as a character throughout the whole series. Now I’ve read it, I’m going to go back and reread Six of Crows before reading Crooked Kingdom, I feel like I understand a lot more about the world now I’ve read the Grisha trilogy (plus, apparently CK has spoilers for the trilogy in it).

I love the Great Library series so far and I’ve remember loving Leviathan, despite having read it about five years ago (and I haven’t read the next two in the latter series). So many of these are on my TBR as well, great list!
