Top 10 Series I've Been Meaning to Start But Haven't

Tuesday, June 20, 2017

A few weeks ago, I did a post in which I discussed the book series I started but haven't finished. What another great way to share my failures as a reader to you than show you all the book series I haven't started yet but am meaning to. 😄 Am I the only one who could list a never-ending amount of series? It was difficult to pick my top ten.

Top Ten Tuesday is created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is: Top 10 Series I've Been Meaning to Start But Haven't.

His Fair Assassin series by Robin LaFevers: I love the tagline for the first book: Why be the sheep when you can be the wolf? Very intriguing, the series sounds exactly like something I would love.

The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater: This one is a surprise, I know. Actually, you might also be surprised that I have never read a book written by Stiefvater. Crazy. I do own a lot of her books and hope to start this series soon.

Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead: I bought the first three books in the series while I was finished up her Vampire Academy series. I loved that series so even though this one is a sort of spin-off series about Adrian, who I didn't really care for in Vampire Academy, I wanted to give it a go. I've waited a bit too long because I'm not in vampire mode anymore. Maybe someday.

The Gold Seer trilogy by Rae Carson: I've been hearing so many good things about this one. Plus, it's set during the Gold Rush. More books should be set during the Gold Rush; it's an era you don't really hear about often.

The Great Library series by Rachel Caine: I must have been living under a rock when these released. I don't recall hearing anything about this series until I spied the second book in the store. Rachel Caine is one of my favorite authors so this is an automatic series on my TBR.

The Darkest Minds series by Alexandra Bracken: These books have been on my shelf for so long. In the beginning of this year, I read her time traveling adventure book series, Passenger, and adored them so I definitely should give these a try soon. 

Falling Kingdoms series by Morgan Rhodes: My brother swears this is the best series ever. I always tell myself that I will read more fantasy books and I never do. I must change this, starting with this series.

Starbound series by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner: I own the first two books in this trilogy but still haven't started it. The covers are very pretty to look at though. It's also science fiction which is one genre I tend not to like so I've been putting this series off.

Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas: I know what you're going to say. What are you waiting for? Well, at least, I finished A Court of Thorns and Roses, right? This series is super long but I recently acquired the first in the series so should be starting it sometime this summer (hopefully!).

Shadow and Bone trilogy by Leigh Bardugo: Ever since I read the Six of Crows duology, I've been waiting for the chance to read this series. A lot of people say that this series, set in the Grishaverse, is not as good as Six of Crows. But I definitely want to give it a go!

What series have been meaning to get to but haven't yet? Have you read the series above? What did you think of them? Give me some awesome series recommendations!

  1. The Raven Cycle is one of my favorite series, many of the others are new to me. Thanks for stopping by and commenting today.

  2. I read the Raven Boys (first book) and the Darkest Minds (first book). I really need to continue with both series! Ahhh Falling Kingdoms...yes!! One of my favorite series!! :D Loved Shadow and Bone as well.

  3. I loved These Broken Stars, but haven't continued with the series. I also liked Ink and Bone, but again, haven't continued! I guess I'm a reading failure, too!

  4. So many good ones! I've been meaning to read Falling Kingdoms, too. I hear so many rave reviews! And the Starbound trilogy. I've heard those are heavy on the romance so naturally I want to read them. :) I read Throne of Glass a couple years ago but never continued with the series. The hype is crazy but I thought the first book was just okay. I *LOVE* the ACOTAR series but I just couldn't get into ToG.

  5. I suggest you bump The Raven Cycle up to the top of your TBR list. I absolutely adore that series and I am really hoping to get a reread in sometime soon!

    I've been meaning to start The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater, and I found the box set for an absolute bargain just a few weeks ago which I took as a sign to start it asap. I've just got a few library books to finish and then I will be diving in head first.

    I also really enjoyed the TOG series. However I read it before I read ACOTAR, and I've seen a lot of people who have read it afterwards and couldn't really get into it. But I really hope you enjoy it like I did. That's another series I am really wanting to reread.

  6. Ooh nice ones! I ADORE The Falling Kingdoms series! Though it would be wise to wait until the final book releases in December because then you can do a series binge! Pretty much ALL the books end with a killer cliffhanger. I've read them in sets sorta, so I've maintained some sanity though book 5's cliffhanger was a doozie!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  7. I love the Gold Seer books! The first two are fantastic and the last is coming out soon. Trilogies are so much easier for me to keep up with than series that go on and on and on, although don't get me wrong, I love series that go on and on and on ...

    Happy TTT!

  8. I really enjoyed The Raven Cycle, Throne of Glass and The Great Library books, so I hope you do too. I have the Shadow and Bone and Darkest Minds books on my TBR also.
    My TTT:

  9. Oh, yes, you need to read The Raven Cycle and the Grisha trilogy (although I still have to read Ruin and Rising , myself). The Darkest Minds trilogy was on my Top Ten, also. :)

  10. Ahh grave mercy has been on my wishlist for a while now, but i haven't bought it yet. I'm very excited for this book!
    you've got a lot of series on your tbr as i do. i'm currently working on a same article as well; 10 popupar series i haven't read yet. the raven cycle is on there, ink and bone, the darkest minds, falling kingdoms.

    and omg you haven't read throne of glass yet? omg omg omgggggg... you're in for a real treat then! this series develops so incredibly good <3 can't wait to read your review of all of the books and see what you'll think of the developments throughout the series!

    i've read these broken stars and thought it was a great read. i havent read book two and three yet, but they're definitely on my to be read list for this year. and the covers are so stunning! love having them in the collection.

    falling kingdoms has been on my to buy list for ages and i still haven't bought it yet - shame on me. i'm so excited for this series because the synopsis sounds so good and i keep hearing amazing things about the books by fellow bloggers/readers.

    walk on earth a stranger.. ive started the book but put it aside somewhere along the line because it couldn't keep my interest at the time. i hope to at least finish it some day to see if a second read will adjust my view - which sometimes happens. sometimes the moment is just wrong for a book you know? it happened to me with city of bones by cassandra clare for example. put it aside after 4 chapters and didn't restart until monthssss after and then i was instantly hooked and she became one of my favorite authors.
