This week’s Top Ten Tuesday over at The Broke and Bookish asks us to share Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start But Haven’t. Anyone else have a mile long list of series to start like I do?? I have a slew of series that everyone but me seems to have read and it’s starting to drive me crazy…
What series have you been meaning to start?
#10 – The Grisha Trilogy
There has been a ton of controversy surrounding this series based on Russian culture that I find fascinating as a writer creating my own series. In order to weight in I’ve got to read the series.
#9 – Incarceron Trilogy
I am a total fan of post-apocalyptic stories and books in the dystopian genre many times becomes a sort of fantasy post-apocalyptic. This seems the case for this series which is really exciting!
A world where personal books are forbidden and libraries hold the power! A sort of dystopian based on the Great Library of Alexandria… wow! Plus the supporting characters sounds divine! This would also be my first Rachel Caine series…
#7 – The Diabolic series
Sci-fi dystopia where a girl named Nemesis is a weapon and must go undercover to save her charge! Sign me up!! Plus “Nemesis learns that there is something stronger than her deadly force: the one thing she’s been told she doesn’t have – humanity.” Yes!
A girl breaks into people’s minds for a living (as a dreamwalker) and because of that she is kidnapped and forced to work at a secret location. Labeled dystopia with clairvoyants… you are starting to see a pattern here, aren’t you?!
#5 – Wayfarers Series
Among a crew of wormhole builders, humanity is a minor species. A patched-up construction vessel hops from planet to planet, this is an everyday sort of ship, just trying to get from here to there. Another book blogger suggested this to me and it sounds so good! I love world building and different cultures…
#4 – Six of Crows Duology
I’m not terribly fond of heist stories in any form or world, but the outcast crew of this heist sound inspiring, breathtaking and crazy good. I’m actually relying a lot on hype at this moment but I look forward to all the background history. I am a total fan of relationships in their any forms and complexity so bring it on!
The final installment is all over my blog feed and I have yet to even touch the hem of this series. I LOVE faerie based worlds so really need to start this ASAP. If I had realized sooner that a faerie world was at its core, I’d already have read book 1…
As a writer myself four alternate worlds seem a lot to juggle… but I am a fan of magical realism ala Harry Potter. While I realize there is probably no comparison they do seem to fall into a similar vein, plus I love books about London!
#1 – Legend series
Many, many bloggers rave about Marie Lu and I would love to understand why! This sounds dark and dystopian though it is labeled adventure sci-fi (is that a thing?) This is all for the hype… will I regret it?!
What series have been on your TBR too long? Please leave the link to your post and I’ll check it out!
Thanks for reading! XOXO,
