Good morning ya’ll! It’s Tuesday! And I’ve actually been really looking forward to this Tuesday, because it’s a Top Ten Tuesday Rewind from The Broke and The Bookish today, and I missed a topic in the beginning of March that I really wanted to do. That topic that I’m going to tackle today is Top Ten Series I Want to Read But Haven’t Started Yet. Cause seriously, this list could be a MILE long.
1. The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher – This is a really popular sci-fi / fantasy series that I’ve had my eye on for a while. The only thing holding me back is that it’s already a REALLY long series (over a dozen books long, I believe) so I’m just patiently waiting to finish a few other series before I start this one.
2. A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket – I feel like this is almost as bad as those people who’ve never read Harry Potter. It’s such a classic kids series! But it’s apparently also very snarky and witty. I should really just borrow the whole series from the library and plow through them one of these days.
3. The Dark Tower series by Stephen King – Because Laura wants me to! And because it sounds like one of the less-scary things that King has written.
4. The Wrinkle in Time quintet by Madeleine L’Engle – I’ve only ever read A Wrinkle in Time, and that was at least 15 years ago. I’m kind of waiting until I own the whole series before I get into it.
5. The Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud – My friend has been recommending this kid’s trilogy to me for 7 years now. I REALLY do want to read it this year, especially since she read the first Outlander novel last year at my recommendation.
6. The Gemma Doyle Trilogy by Libba Bray – I’ve read two books by Libba Bray so far and I loved them both (Beauty Queens and The Diviners), so I don’t know why I’ve been holding back on starting this super-popular trilogy. I guess I’m still wary of the hype?
7. The Christ Clone Trilogy by James Beauseigneur – This has also been recommended to me for years, and I have the book on my shelf just waiting to be started. It’s about someone trying to clone Jesus using DNA found on the Shroud of Turin, and I’m sure it’s good… but it sounds a little action-thriller-y for me, like a Tom Clancy novel or something. I need to get over my (probably wrong) perception of it and just start reading it.
8. Nursery Crime series by Jasper Fforde – I really enjoy Fforde’s Thursday Next books, and I kind of can’t wait to try this other series by him. But as I’m still reading the Thursday Next books AND his kid’s series The Chronicles of Kazam, I figure I should finish those first.
9. Eon / Eona dualogy by Alison Goodman – I’ve been wanting to read this dualogy for a long time because I hear fantastic things about it, but I think I’ve been waiting to crave a little YA fantasy.
10. The Booktown Mystery series by Lorna Barrett – I have the first three books in this series, AND the author is a local author to my area. I really should read the first one soon and keep an eye out for any author events she might be at!
Can’t wait to see what you guys come up with for today’s rewind topic!!! Are there any series I should be reading that you would suggest to me?
