Top Ten Series I’d Like To Start But Haven’t Yet

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Book bloggers create their own lists based on the chosen topics and post links to our lists. It’s a way of all sharing our thoughts and our love of books.  And who doesn’t love lists??

So this week the challenge is to list the book series that we’d like to start, but haven’t gotten around to yet.  I’m going to cheat a little – well, maybe more than a little – and include series that I have started, at some point in my life, but never got around to finishing, series that I want to start over – and make it through the whole darn thing!

  1. Wonderful World of Oz by Frank L. Baum – I read The Wonderful World of Oz when I was a kid, but I’ve never read the rest of the series.  I just bought them all in hardcover and am looking forward to sharing these with my kids!
  2. Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis – What can I say, some of these classic series for younger audiences I started as a kid, but never moved past the first book for some reason.  So add this to the list as another great series that I could read out loud with the kids!
  3. Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien – I read The Hobbit and I attempted at one point in my middle-school years to tackle the rest, but never made it.  Since my hubby is such a fan I should probably give them another try!
  4. Matched by Allie Condie –  I have made a vow not to start any more trilogies until the last book has been released – I hate that year-long wait between books – it makes me crazy!  And then there’s always the effort of trying to remember where I left off when the next book comes out!  Now that Reached was released at the end of 2012 this is a trilogy that I have put on my to-read list.
  5. Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare – I read her Infernal Devices series and the last book is coming out this month, finally!  The Infernal Devices series is a prequel to the Mortal Instrument series, so once I finish Clockwork Princess I will add this series to my to-read list.
  6. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon – I have heard a ton of great things about this series, but have never started it.  Travelling back in time, Scotland, intrigue, romance – how can I go wrong?
  7. Miss Marple by Agatha Christie – I’m a lover of mysteries and have never spent any real time with the queen of mystery!  I picked up a bunch of her books at a used book sale a couple of years ago and keep meaning to start working my way through them – they’re not too long so it shouldn’t be too hard!
  8. Stone Barrington by Stuart Woods – I like a lot of the books in this genre – mystery/thrillers with a recurring character – good quick reads that are entertaining.  I know that this series is popular in my library with folks that like many of the authors that I do, so it’s probably worth a try.
  9. Song of Fire and Ice by George R.R. Martin – I’m generally not a huge reader of fantasy, but given the popularity of the HBO series (which I have not seen), I would like to give the first book a try and see how it goes.
  10. Divergent by Veronica Roth – A dystopian series that looks interesting and I hear positive things, I just need to follow my own rules and wait until the last book is released in October!

  1. I actually prefer the Mortal Instruments to Infernal Devices. Of course, I love TID, but I just like TMI more (well the first three books anyway). Oh yeah, and I am so excited for Clockwork Princess & the City of Bones movie this summer. I must admit, though, that I’m ready for Cassandra Clare to leave the shadowhunter world and write something different.

    • Mortal Instruments is on my summer reading list! Of course, so are a hundred other things! I need to finish the Clockwork Princess first – wrap up some of these series I’m already part way through – but at least TMI is done and once I start I can get through them all without losing the story arc.
