Top Ten Series I’d Like To Start But Haven’t YetThis is a tough one. Because there’s a lot of them. Picking ten is difficult, but here we go.
1. Ultraviolet by R.J. Anderson
I think almost all my blogging friends have read this series and have raved about it. It’s near the top of my to-read list for sure. Should get to it this month.
2. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
Certain people have been raving about this series very visibly on my Twitter feed. These are awesome people though, and it probably means the series is really worth it. So I should get on this soon.
3. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
After I finished Just One Day I was totally in love. Gayle has such a beautiful writing style and manages to touch my heart in such a subtle and memorable way… I need to read this series as well.
4. Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
This was on my list for a while, but not really with any urgency. The ladies at Epic Reads however just keep talking about it and how great the romance is. That makes it go a bit higher on my list.
5. The Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan
I’m a crazy huge fan of both Percy Jackson & the Olympians and The Heroes of Olympus, so it’s only fitting that I complete the list and read all of Rick’s works. Just haven’t gotten around to this yet. I must say, Egyptian mythology just is a bit less appealing to me than Greek mythology.
6. The Ruby Red Trilogy by Kerstin Gier
So this is originally a German series but it became hugely popular and has been sold to many countries. In fact, it’s so popular that there’s a German movie coming out this year. The trailer just looks awesome and convinced me I have to try out this historical romance, time-traveling series. (Love the cover, by the way.)
7. The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa
Everyone seems to love this series, but I’m still hesitant about the whole faerie concept, so I haven’t been able to push myself to read it. It is on my list though, to definitely do this year.
8. The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss
I definitely, on occasion, love my epic high fantasies. This one is among the favorite recent fantasy series of many readers, so I definitely should get around to it soon.
9. Dreamdark by Laini Taylor
I love Laini’s writing style, so I’m resolved to read all her works. But as with The Iron Fey, the faerie thing is still a mental obstacle for me. I’ll get over it though, have no fear.
10. Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
This series isn’t so well known, but the few reviews I’ve seen make it stand out from other high fantasies. It sounds very unique and memorable.
So… which series do you still need to start?
