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.
