Hi everyone! Starting from this week I’m going to be taking part in the regular Top Ten Tuesday feature ran by The Broke and the Bookish. I’m doing it to mix my posts up a bit and try some new things, so let me know what you think!
So this week is the top ten series I’ve been meaning to read bur haven’t started. This is basically going to be me hanging my head in shame at all the lovely books I’ve been meaning to read but haven’t actually got round to yet.
1. A Court of Thorns and Roses – Sarah J Maas.
Yes, I know. I love Throne of Glass so much, it’s probably one of my most favourite series and I have been planning to read these beautiful books ever since they first came out – I own all of them and they look stunning – and I hear such wonderful things about them, but for some reason I’m yet to get round to reading them. Maybe now that summer is here this will be the kick I need to finally read them!
2. Red Queen – Victoria Aveyard
This is another one that I can’t quite believe I haven’t got around to reading. I bought the first book with the intentions of getting into it straight away and somehow never did. Three books later and I still haven’t quite got around to reading it. It is fairly near the top of my TBR pile, but that changes quite a lot depending on what appears in the post!
3. Anything by Victoria Schwab
This is my secret shame that I have in fact never read any of her books. Each one that she releases sounds utterly fantastic and I have This Savage Song on my shelf at the moment, but I haven’t gotten to it yet. I am also really desperate to read The Shades of Magic series because it sounds stunning. I’m definitely going to have to rectify this one soon!
4. Daughter of Smoke and Bone – Laini Taylor
Laini Taylor is an author that I’ve always had on my radar, but sadly never read anything by. (I know I almost can’t believe it either!) I did rectify that this year when the lovely folks at Hodder sent me a copy of Strange the Dreamer, which I absolutely adored. I am absolutely determined to start this series at some point in 2017, because I’m not itching for more of Laini’s fantastic writing.
5. Three Dark Crowns – Kendare Blare
This one probably isn’t as bad as the others because the first was only released last year, however I was desperate to buy this, rushed to the bookshop to get it, and – you guessed it – I still haven’t read it yet. With book two due to be released in September, I’m determined to get this one read and not be completely behind on the series!
6. The Books of Babel – Josiah Bancroft
I first heard about this series from one of my favourite authors Mark Lawrence, who praised it really highly. It was top of my wishlist for Christmas last year and my Dad very kindly ordered them for me. Even after reading so many fantastic reviews for these books I still haven’t gotten round to reading them. I promise I’ll get around to it soon though!
7. An Ember in the Ashes – Sabaa Tahir
I don’t think I’ve met anyone who didn’t absolutely adore this series. I know I’m only two books behind, but with two more on the way I’m going to have to move quick to catch up!
8. The Dark Artifices /The Infernal Devices /The Bane Chronicles – Cassandra Clare
I am the worlds worst Moral Instrument fan. I loved the series – though I haven’t actually finished it, I still have City of Heavenly Fire to read. Since then Cassandra Clare has brought out a whole host of titles in the Shadowhunter world, and I have dutifully bought them all and haven’t read a single one. I’m not sure why, maybe I’m secretly worried they won’t live up to The Mortal Instruments?
9. Six of Crows – Leigh Bardugo
As soon as I finish my dissertation I’m going to lock myself in a room and read Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom. To be perfectly honest this is the one I am most ashamed about. Leigh Bardugo is probably one of my favourite authors and I loved the Grisha series so much I can’t begin to describe how good it is, but I’ve not read this magnificent looking duology. What is wrong with me!?
10. The Lunar Chronicles – Marissa Meyer
Finally my last series that I still haven’t got around to reading is The Lunar Chronicles. These books sound so fantastic, and I’ve read lots of lovely blogger reviews about them, I actually own the entire series as well, but I haven’t read them. I’m definitely going to have to spend a lot of the summer catching up on some of these!
So those are the series I definitely need to read. What series have you been meaning to start but haven’t?
