This is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where each week bloggers share a list of books for the prompt given. Today’s suggested topic is:
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?
I’ve tried to pick series that have been out for a while or at the very least have a couple of instalments already out, so I’ve ignored a lot of recently released first instalments which I want to read as well.
No matter how hard I try, or how many books I read, I can never seem to make a dent in my TBR list. So it’s no surprise there are tons of series I’ve yet to get around to, even more than the ten I featured for this week’s theme. These aren’t in any specific order either!
The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
Shameful confession time, I’ve never read The Hunger Games. This one does seem to get great reviews so I feel like I really must read it soon. It seems as though everyone has read these books except me.
The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings
Honestly, I have started the first book in this duology. I started book one last year but then didn’t continue. I still remember I enjoyed it, so I have no idea why I haven’t finished it yet.
The Silver Trilogy by Kerstin Gier
Despite the fact that the author is new to me, I’ve been hearing great things about her books, especially this series. The reviews are great and they have been constantly recommended to me.
A Thousand Nights by E. K. Johnston
This is one that I’m actually planning on starting next month! I own a physical copy of the first book in this duology but I haven’t gotten around to it. I do love the sound of the story.
Fallen Series by Lauren Kate
I actually own Torment & Rapture, the only reason I haven’t started this series yet is because I don’t actually own the first book. I have to admit that the reviews I’ve heard of this series are mixed, so I’m a little on the fence about starting it, but I’m certainly interested enough to give it a try.
The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S, Lewis
I have heard so many wonderful things about this book. I can’t wait to finally get around to it! I’ve been wanting to read this series for years and I love the Movies.
Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
I’ve been meaning to read this book for ages, but I never get around to it. This is described as a classic coming-of-age story so I definitely need to read the Anne of Green Gables series.
The Keys to the Kingdom by Garth Nix
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
This is another series I’ve been meaning to read for a long time. I own the first book in this series, so I’m planning on starting reading it soon.
Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan
Everyone raves about this series, so I’ve heard a lot about it and watched the movie Adaptations. I can’t to finally start this series soon! I’m actually extremely ashamed of the fact I haven’t read this series. So I will definitely read this.
Thanks for reading this list. What are some series you’ve been meaning to start? Have you read any of these series? What did you think? Do you have any of these on your TBR as well? Let me know in the comments! Also, Let me know what series I need to bump up to the top of my list.
