Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke And The Bookish. Lists galore, I can think of nothing better!
This week's theme is one that I have no difficulty creating a list for, top ten series I've been meaning to start but haven't yet. I made a list of the ten series I wanted to read this year, including some that I want to start, at the beginning of the year, but there are so many series I need to pick up that I definitely have enough for another list.
This is like my number 1 series I need to start right this minute. I have owned the first book, Cinder, for a good 2/3 years now but just haven't picked it up. I have no excuse, it needs to happen!
As soon as I heard about Cruel Beauty, before it was even published, it went straight to the top of my Goodreads TBR, where it has remained for 3 years. I now own the first book so I have even less of an excuse for not having picked it up yet.
This is another one that went straight to the top of my Goodreads TBR when I heard about the first book but as this series has gone on it has become more and more intimidating. Have you seen the size of the third book? You could kill someone with that thing!
My excuse for not reading a lot of series is that there are not many contemporary series, or at least ones I am interested in. Apparently that excuse is irrelevant as I have had the first book in this series sitting on my shelves for a good 2 years and haven't picked it up yet.
I'm actually extremely ashamed of the fact I haven't read this series. The movie based on these books was one of my favourites when I first watched it, before I even knew this series existed. I feel like this is the perfect series to read in the summer so I may have to start it soon.
I initially wasn't interested in this series but the fact that everyone seems to absolutely love this series was the thing that intrigued me. I think the way these books are written is something I would really enjoy, I'm not sure Sci-Fi is my thing though, which is why I haven't picked Illuminae up yet. I need to give it a go.
Kasie West is one of my favourite authors but I have only ever read her contemporary books. This series is fantasy/paranormal I believe and the synopsis sounds really interesting so I definitely want to check it out soon and see if I love it just as much as her contemporaries.
Technically I can't read this trilogy until I have read City Of Glass and City Of Ashes so I have an excuse for this one. I have no excuse for not having read books 2 and 3 in The Mortal Instruments series though. I'm trying to work my way through all of these interrelated series but there are just so many books.
This is another series I has no interest in initially but for some reason have become interested quite recently. I own the first book but obviously I'm not interested enough as I haven't picked it up yet. I know very little about this series but I know I need to read it soon.
Unlike all the other series in this list, I have actually picked up the first book in this series once before. I read about 50 pages but just wasn't in the mood for it so put it down and haven't picked it up again yet. I own the whole trilogy and I know I could easily marathon them if I was in the mood.
I have so many series that I really want to start and listing them like this is a little overwhelming. I just want to read all of the books! Hopefully I can check a couple off this list by the end of the year, fingers crossed. What series do you really need to pick up soon?
