February 25: Top Ten Tuesday REWIND! (Pick from previous topics that you want to do again or may have missed)
I’m going with Top Ten Series I’d Like to Start, But Haven’t Yet
1. Curse Workers series by Holly Black. I don’t even own a single book in this series, but I really do want to start it, especially since so many of my friends have read them.
2. The Grisha series by Leigh Bardugo– when it first came out, I kept getting the title mixed up with The Daughter of Smoke and Bones book, and I wasn’t so sure I wanted to read either series. TDoSaB series, however, captured my attention and I fell in love with it. And then I heard nothing but good things about this series, so I really, really want to start it!
3. Throne of Glass series by Sarah Maas. This is another series that failed to catch my eye at first. But I met the author while in line for Susan Dennard last year, and have been following her on social media since then, so I’d really like to read her books.
4. The Falling Kingdoms series by Morgan Rhodes. Sigh. So last year was the first year that I went to a bunch of signings. My friend and I drove down to NC for this signing (which I think included Beth Revis, Jessica Spotswood, Elizabeth Richards and Morgan Rhodes), I loved all four authors and fantasy is definitely a genre I’ve rediscovered the past two years- I used to eat Xanth novels by Piers Anthony for breakfast back in my teens. I want to read this book, and series, but it’s just under the curse of too many great books on my shelves.
5. Black City series by Elizabeth Richards. See reason above. Plus, Ms. Richards has a delightfully awesome accent, and since I’m an American I can’t help but be charmed by any kind of British/Irish/Scottish/Australian/New Zealand/South African/Jamaican/French/Italian/Indian/Swedish…. are you getting the point? I love accents! 😉 I love all the different accents here in the USA too, and I melt for a great Canadian accent.
6. Aurora Teagarden Mysteries by Charlaine Harris. I enjoyed, for the most part, the Sookie Stackhouse series, but I really enjoyed her Harper Connelly series and I’m currently reading her Lily Bard Mysteries. The Aurora Teagarden books feature an older mc, which would be a nice switch up for me. I will eventually get to this series, but it’s probably going to be library check outs, since you know, I’m being good and staying on the good side of the Library Police at the moment.
7. The Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. I met Richelle at last year’s BEA and really liked her, and what with the movie coming out (or already out? I haven’t been to a movie in sooo long), the desire to read this series is pretty high.
8. The Jessica Darling series by Megan McCafferty. I really want to read these books, but of course I say that about a lot of books. I have a lot of friends who love this series though.
9. Uglies series by Scott Westerfield. I actually own the first one, but it’s been on my shelves for over a year. Have no idea when I’ll get to it!
10. Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. This woman made gargoyles sexy. How the frickety frak is that possible? But she did, so yeah, totally want to start her other series, pronto!
*Honorable mentions: I’m giving these out to series in which I’ve read the first book but would like to finish the series:
1. Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon– read and loved the first, have yet to read the second even though I’ve owned it for years.
2. The Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carringer– again, loved the first book, but haven’t read the second. In my defense, I own the trilogy on Kindle, but then got the first book on Audible during a sale and the narration is superb. But I feel guilty buying the audio versions when I have the ebooks. I did buy the 4th on Audible (another sale item) and now that I’m friends with the library again, maybe I can check the audiobooks out from there?
3. Caster Chronicles (Beautiful Creatures series) by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl– I really liked the first book, but that was when I was still fairly new to blogging and I was reading the first in tons of series, and this one got lost in the shuffle. After watching the movie though, I really want to do a re-read and pick it up again!
4. The Flavia de Luce mysteries by Alan Bradley– read the first one for book club, picked the second one up on sale. This series has just fallen into the pit of despair, which is what I like to call my tbr pile.
5. Mara Dyer series by Michelle Hodkin– I loved the first book, but I really need to re-read it before I start the next book… and as you can see, time is a wee bit of a problem. But maybe I can listen to the audio version and then…
