Today is a lovely Tuesday, which means that it is time for another Top Ten Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a feature on The Broke and the Bookish site, where bloggers share their top tens in relation to prompts. This week, the prompt is to discuss our top ten series that we need to start (but haven’t…yet). Let’s begin.
10. The Study Series (Poison Study onward) by Marie V. Snyder
Chiara loves this series, and it has such good reviews on Goodreads. It’s on my to buy list for the next few months. I don’t know a whole lot about it. Yet, I am interested in it. Girl is on death row, and then she is offered a position as a poison tester.
9. The Falconer Series by Elizabeth May
I already have the first book, and I just need to start reading it. Hoping to collect the next two books over the next few months. The reviews are awesome for this, too. It’s definitely something up my alley, and I’m interested in it.
8. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
Whenever I go on Tumblr, I see so many GIFs and mood boards of the characters in this series. I have the series on my shelves, so it’s not like I have to wait till my copies get here or anything like that.
7. The Sin Eater’s Daughter series by
I saw the first book in a book store, and I was just so fascinated by the cover. I don’t know a whole lot about it, but I did get the first two books. The last one comes out in the Fall. So…I need to get to it. Shannon and Aly talk about it on Goodreads.
6. Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
A lot of people hate these books. I, for one, felt the pressure to give them away a couple of years back. Then, I decided to get them used without focusing on what people say about them. For sure, it’s a series that is nothing like many books I have read. I want to get to it, because I think it could help me as a writer, too.
5. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
Criminals and dream walking-type-deal sounds fascinating, especially now that I have finished the Raven Cycle by Maggie Steifvater. I’d like to see how Samantha Shannon interprets this concept of dream walking.
4. The Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness
This is another series that I gave away, and then bought used later. Some booktubers commented on something terrible happening in the first book. I can handle heartbreak. The reason I picked up these books is because the premise sounds epic. A world where people can hear each other’s thoughts. And, there’re no girls? Then one day, boy meets girl? SIGN ME UP!
(Also: there’s a dog in this. I hope nothing bad happens to the dog. That better not be the horrible thing that happens in the first book).
3. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
I have had these books for YEARS. Still have not read them. I want to read them just to experience Laini Taylor’s lyrical writing (because GOALS!). And, I want to see how the story progresses. I only read like a chapter or so? Many years ago, I checked out the first few chapters of the first book. I have to read these books.
2. Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson
It’s a fourteen book series and it has a lot of interesting characters. Brandon Sanderson said he loved these books long before he was asked to write the last couple of books in the series. I’m just really curious about it, and I want to see which characters I like in this series.
1. Cinda Williams Chima Books
I keep putting off reading her books, even though I have them all. But, I’m intimidated, I guess? I follow her Facebook page, and she has such a sweet following. I admire her already. And, I just want to get to her work, and learn from and observe her style.
