Hi everyone! The wanderer has returned! I just arrived back from Greece today and had an amazing time on holiday. Greece is such a beautiful country, if any of you ever get a chance to go, you definitely should! Anyway, I’m back, and just in time for a new Top Ten Tuesday, courtesy of the lovely ladies over at The Broke and The Bookish. This week we’re talking about Top Ten Series We’ve Been Meaning To Start But Haven’t, otherwise known as The List of Shame (though to be fair, the list of series I still need to finish is probably more shameful!). I read so many series, it’s far too easy for several of them to fall through the cracks! These are the ones I feel most ashamed for not having started yet:
- Scarlet Trilogy-AC Gaughen
I love Robin Hood. I love retellings. You would think that would mean that I would have read this series already right? But no. I got the book from my secret sister in the last round and I keep meaning to read it, but story of my life, I get distracted by all the other pretties! Soon, I will definitely get to this soon.
2. Embassy Row Series-Ally Carter
I loved Ally Carter’s Heist Society books, so when I saw she had a new series I was really excited! This of course meant that I didn’t acquire the first book for years (thanks Secret Sis) and then left it sitting on my shelf because you know…..bookworm.
3. The Darkest Minds Trilogy-Alexandra Bracken
I added this to my TBR when I was going through my big dystopia phase and then that kind of fizzled out and I just never got around to starting it. I’ve heard good things about it from my friend though and our tastes in books are really similar, so I would like to try and get around to this series one day!
4. Shatter Me Series-Tahereh Mafi
Another tragedy of my dystopia phase! I have seen lots of love for this series online though and apparently there have been more books added to the series? This might be the perfect time to catch up.
5. The Network Series-Katie Cross
This series sounds so cool, like a cross between Harry Potter and The Worst Witch. I mean witches? Magical education? Why haven’t I started this yet? #SerialProcrastinator.
6. Matthew Shardlake Series-CJ Sansom
This series has detectives and Tudors, two things I love the most, I really need to stop procrastinating reading it! Sure, I read lots of young adult pretties, but I shouldn’t forget about the great adult stuff that is out there, just because YA is my main source of books.
7. Inkworld Trilogy-Cornelia Funke
This is a series about books that has fictional characters coming to life as well as real people being able to disappear into stories. Nothing about this series sounds like I wouldn’t LOVE it, so why do I keep putting it off? I have no idea!
8. The Star Touched Queen Duology-Roshani Choski
This duology sounds amazing, Indian mythology? Royalty? Death and destruction? All of these things sound like things I would love. I have heard such brilliant things about this duology, I really need to get on it!
9. Splintered Series-AG Howard
This sounds like such a fun, wacky, whimsical story, so perfect for an Alice In Wonderland story. I’ve heard some really good things about this one and I’m definitely hoping to get around to it soon.
10. The Grisha Trilogy-Leigh Bardugo
My friend loves these books and is always saying how amazing Leigh Bardugo’s writing is, so I definitely need to try and start this series soon!
I’m going to stick to just ten this week, because I have so many series that I’ve been meaning to start that if I kept going, I’d probably be here until next Tuesday! What series have you been meaning to start but haven’t? Have you read any of these? Let me know in the comments!
Next week’s list is Best Books You’ve Read In 2017 so far, I’ve only read 18 so far this year, so it might be hard to pick a ten out of that, but I’ll give it a go! I’ll hopefully be able to do regular posting this week, starting with a new Quarterly Rewind tomorrow, so stay tuned for that!
