YES. I am doing Top Ten Tuesday again! Today, at least. I can’t promise a bigger commitment because I am the laziest blogger around. Today’s topic is:

Top Ten Book Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start But Haven’t

1. The Grishaverse books by Leigh Bardugo

Leigh Bardugo is SO highly recommended by everyone. Everyone *loves* the Grisha Books and I have them, I just haven’t got around to actually reading them (this is obviously going to be repeated muchly during this round up).I did try to read Shadow & Bone from the library yonks ago, I just couldn’t get into it. BUT. I am planning to read this series THIS YEAR OR DIE TRYING. So there’s that. Also: LOOK AT THOSE STUNNING NEW COVERS. *WEEPS*

2. The Dark Artifices by Cassandra Clare

I have had Lady Midnight for AGES from the library but I am procrastinating reading it because a) it’s MASSIVE and b) I feel like I burnt myself out on all things Shadowhunter by reading thousands of pages in such a tiny space of time. HOWEVER. I hear Lady Midnight is ASTOUNDING. Some love it even more than TMI and TID!

3. ADSOM series by Victoria Schwab

Victoria Schwab has the most passionate fans, ever. They got legit crazy over her books and I am ashamed to say I haven’t read one! NOT ONE. I own the ADSOM books and the duet she just released (I can’t remember it’s series name) and I want to read them nowwwww, but I get so distracted and I have other books to read and it’s just the story of my life.

4. Delirium series by Lauren Oliver

I am so ashamed that of all of Lauren Oliver’s books, I have only read Before I Fall. And I LOVED Before I Fall, it is one of my favourite YA books, ever. The first YA I ever read, even! And yet… I have all of Lauren’s other books on my shelf I just haven’t actually got around to reading them. *Deep sigh*

5. The Fame Game series by Lauren Conrad

Back in 2011 or 2012, or whenever it was, I absolutely loved LC’s L.A. Candy series so when her second series was announced I got all the books! And er, I still have them. It’s probably the series I’ve had the longest and still haven’t read, which is just terrible. I AM A TERRIBLE PERSON.

6. The Raven Boys series by Maggie Stiefvater

Cait at Paper Fury raves about this series like you would. not. believe. I bought this series when I was in Sheffield the ~~~~traveller~~~~ that I am and I think I’m kinda putting it off because people LOVE this series so hard. SO HARD. But I want to be able to fangirl with them!

7. The Bone Season series by Samantha Shannon

LOOK AT THOSE PRETTY COVERS. Suffice to say, I do not own these covers, except for the last one. There’s going to be like so many books in this series, like Harry Potter amounts but LONGER? So that’s why I’ve not started this series because only three books are out! That’s like a massive wait for the rest! And Samantha writes like there’s no tomorrow – she has a new book she’s been tweeting about that’s over 250,000 words long *FAINTS*

8. The ACOTAR series by Sarah J Maas

…I haven’t even really got stuck into the Throne of Glass series, never mind ACOTAR. I’m only on book two of ToG and ACOTAR is completely different and adult? And people proper rave about it? But also tear it down? SO I’M SO CONFUSED, BASICALLY. They’re so pretty, though.

9. The Selection series by Kiera Cass

I bought the boxed set of this series a little while ago, on a whim. Some say the first three books are amazing and the rest are meh, but I have no idea.

10. The Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer

It pains me that I haven’t started this series because it is SO highly recommended, with no controversy and SO MUCH LOVE. It’s one of the only series where people seem to love all the books so hard and I just need to read this series immediately.

So there’s my list. That is not ALL the series I haven’t yet started (there’s so many more, SO. MANY. MORE.) The DIMILY series, everything by Derek Landy, all of Rick Riordan’s series’ except Percy Jackson, Illuminae Chronicles, just so many books… So many series. I need to lock myself in a room for five years and not be allowed Internet access or have to go to work. It’s the only wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

    I’ve actually read the first book in The Selection and ACOTAR series. The size of A Court of Mist and Fury intimidated me, which is why I stopped, but I’m not sure why I stopped reading The Selection… I really enjoyed it, and it was a super fast read!
    The only one of these I’ve read in its entirety is the Shadow and Bone trilogy, but I didn’t enjoy the last book. The second installment is one of the best books I’ve ever read, though, so it’s well worth a go!

    I think you are correct, that five years locked away is the only way for us to get a handle on the series situations!

    I am another fan of Lunar Chronicles, and a recent rabid convert to all things Schwab. I did not love Raven Boys (don’t tell Cait) or the original Grisha book–but I ADORE Stiefvater’s Scorpio Races and Bardugo’s Six of Crows duology. So what do I know?

    I haven’t read The Grisha books either! I really loved The Raven Cycle, I hope you do too. The Shades of Magic books are amazing, I’m sure you’ll love them. I like the ACOTAR series, but I prefer the Throne of Glass books. I only just started the first Bone Season book but I’m enjoying it so far. I’ve only read the first Lunar Chronicles book and wasn’t a fan, but I’ve heard the second book is better, so I hope I enjoy it more.

    Aaah, this is a great list and so many of these books are also series I haven’t gotten around to reading yet. and I love that even though they didn’t make it on the list that you also need to read Derek Landy books and Rick Riordan books. Oh and the Illuminae chronicles. Which are so so good and highly recommend them (minus the thing we talked about on twitter with chat speak being overused in the chat sections of the books). Besides, you read so fast, I reckon you could finish both books in a day! 😛

    Adulting needs to take up wayyyyy less time than it does so that we have so much more time to read all these amazing books we haven’t gotten to yet (and blog and talk books and other important things!)

    Your list looks similar to mine! I hope you enjoy reading them when you get around to it!
