Morning friends (or please insert whatever time of day it is when you read this). Yes we’re back with another edition of Top Ten Tuesday. This week I’m looking at those series I keep thinking I ought to start but just haven’t managed to get round to yet!
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the beyond amazing The Broke and Bookish. If you don’t already you should head over there and check out the list of all the amazing book bloggers who take part, it’s a great way to find other bloggers who might read the same books as you!
If you’ve been following me for a while you know I have a bad habit of starting a series mid way through so it’s actually quite hard to come up with ten examples that I haven’t even read one of the books in the series. But I got there in the end, without further ado-ten series I have yet to start!
These books have been on every listopia list I’ve ever looked at and I still haven’t had time to start the series! Maybe in the next year I’ll get round to it!
2) The Micah Grey Series
I keep very nearly buying these books whenever I’m in my local bookshop but the sorry state of my bank account always stays my hand. I love the covers and the circus theme always floats my boat! May have to press on my local library to buy copies so I can read them…
3) Monsters of Verity
With the release of Our Dark Duet last week I realised how much I want to read this series! Who doesn’t love a dark urban fantasy?
4) Shadow and Bone
Having just finished Six of Crows I’m intrigued to see what else Leigh Bardugo has written and this series just seems to keep cropping up wherever I go. I may have to succumb soon!
5) Shades of Magic
Another one for which I can blame the bookblogger community. I see these books everywhere now and they call to me from the shelves! I need to get my hands on these asap.
6) The Raven Cycle
Another book series that I feel like I’ve been eyeing up for years! I love the covers and they are so tempting but I just never have the time to get into a series that I know is going to take me a while!
7) Artemis Fowl
I have a vague memory of my brother loving these books when we were younger but since I made a valiant effort as a child to not like any of the things my brother enjoyed I never really got round to these. I have a feeling I would quite like them so I’m going to try and find second hand copies and maybe read them on the side quite slowly.
8) His Dark Materials
I have friends who swear this series changed their lives, but for some reason I’ve just not got round to reading them. Luckily, copies of these books seem to be floating around everywhere so as soon as my book buying ban is over I should be able to start!
9) The Kingkiller Chronicle
Another friend’s recommendation that I just haven’t seemed to get to. But thanks to a giveaway from the lovely people at Fairyloot I have my own copy of The Name of the Wind and I can start it soon!
10) The Wrath and the Dawn
Having recently read Flame in the Mist and having chatted to Renée Ahdieh in a Fairychat on twitter I realised I really want to read more of her books and I remembered it was her who wrote The Wrath and the Dawn. Hopefully these are in my local library!
Phewf. My TBR list is looking a little more full now (how could it get any bigger) but this was actually a really fun exercise! Even if you’re not doing TTT I recommend thinking about this because, if you’re anything like me, you can get a bit lost in new releases and it’s really nice to think about those books that have been on your mind for a long while!
Let me know what you think and link me to your TTT in the comments below. Don’t forget to hit that follow button if you want to be kept abreast of what’s happening here on Chain Interaction.
I’ll see you tomorrow for Want to Read Wednesday!
