My Top Ten Series I Keep Meaning to Read

This week's Top Ten Tuesday prompt asks which book series would you like to read, but haven't yet.  Some of my favorite books are a part of a series.  We have a love/hate relationship, though.  I love that the story continues past one book, but I loathe the wait time in between.  When they're good, you HAVE TO know what happens next!  Also, when the wait time extends a bit too long.. I have a tendency to forget and push aside. Eek!  Some series can be a serious commitment and that can be intimidating, too.  I do want to read these... eventually.

Be sure to check out The Broke and the Bookish for more details on this awesome weekly feature.

1. Across the Universe (Across the Universe) by Beth Revis
2. Graceling (Graceling Realm) by Kristin Cashore
3. The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking) by Patrick Ness
4. Bloodlines (Bloodlines) by Richelle Mead
5. Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone) by Laini Taylor
6. Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky) by Veronica Rossi
7. Cinder (Lunar Chronicles) by Marissa Meyer
8. Half-Blood (Covenant) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
9. A Rogue by Any Other Name (The Rules of Scoundrels) by Sarah MacLean
10. Exclusively Yours (Kowalski Family) by Shannon Stacey


  1. I've only read Cinder in your list. I've got most of these books on my shelf but it was left untouched. Need to fix that. Both of us ;) Great list! :)

    Here's my Top 10

  2. Oooo many of these are in my list too.

    I asked for Cinder in my library, so they are going to bring me soon. Just the moment I have in my hands, I'm going to read it right away :)

  3. I can't believe you want to start Graceling. I AM SO EXCITED! Our little Ginger's gonna try fantasy yayyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. I've started quite a few you mentioned, but the only one I've finished is Graceling - which I loved!

  5. You are going to adore Patrick Ness's books. I can see the plot and the writing having a lot of appeal for you in particular. I just finished Cinder yesterday and it was mind-blowing. Graceling is great as well.

    Personally I wouldn't prioritize AtU or DoSaB too highly. They're both only okay, but that's a matter of personal opinion.

  6. GINGER!!!!! You need to start reading Cinder, Across the Universe and Graceling!!!! Soooo good!!! I also loved Under the Never Sky and Daughter of Smoke and Bone. :)

  7. I want to read Across the Universe too. I have the first book, but I still haven't read it yet. Seriously though, you have to read Under the Never Sky -- you won't regret Perry.

    My TTT

  8. There's so much fantasy/dystopia/sci-fi on your list and that makes me absurdly happy (in the best way possible). Here's to trying new things!

    Specific Thoughts for You:
    - I have yet to start the Across the Universe series, though I have the first two books. I think I really need to start that when I have a lull in my reading again...
    - YAY FOR GRACELING! I need to read the first two as a refresher before I attempt Bitterblue. But I love this series, and I sincerely hope you enjoy them.
    - I'm determined to start the Chaos Walking trilogy this year, as I've heard nothing but good things about this series. The idea of doing it scares me a little though!
    - I really need to read Daughter of Smoke & Bone, since I'm so curious about that cover and people say it's really good. Ditto regarding Under the Never Sky!
    - A Rogue by Any Other Name is fun! I enjoyed it a lot when I read it, and I really need to get started on the next book.

    My favorite item on your list though is CINDER. I loved that book so, so much. I am in awe of Marissa's ability to tell a good story. Her characters are well-formed, her world is interesting and the story is TOPS.

  9. I LOVED the Chaos Walking series! They are so different, and a little strange, but once you get into it, so very hard to put down! I'm always hoping more people will read them. Graceling I adored as well, though I still need to read Bitterblue. Under the Never Sky is another series that is on my favorites. All your rest, I need to read too! I hope you get to read some of these soon! :)

    My Top Ten

  10. I still have to read Under the Never Sky and Cinder too. :) So many books, so little time.
    My Top Ten Tuesday!

  11. I still need to read Bloodlines myself. Cinder, Graceling and Daughter of Smoke & Bone are all excellent. Looks like you have some reading to do. :-)

  12. I've only read Daughter of Smoke and Bone and Cinder from your list and highly recommend both. I've read the second book after Cinder, but still haven't read the second in DOSAB so I probably should have added that to my list too...

  13. Cinder and The Knife of Never Letting Go are both great. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is also really, really good, but I'd rank it just a little underneath the first two.

  14. CINDER <3 I hope you get to that book soon and love it like I did, because I can't stop thinking about that series right now. I also adored UTNS. Hope you enjoy these when you get to them! (I can't BELIEVE I forgot the Chaos Walking series on my list! I want to read that series so badly.)

  15. My roommate just finished Graceling and Fire, and is now trying to force them upon me. I hope to get to them soon too!

  16. I wan to start a lot of these series too, especially the Chaos Walking trilogy. I need to hunt out a copy of Daughter of Smoke and Bone soon, I keep passing it up but that's something that's probably got to change haha!

  17. Just read The Lunar Chronicles, haha! They will blow your mind away with how amazing and awesome and phenomenal they are!

  18. Look at you working on this list already! HA! :D Hope you like Exclusively Yours!! And, YES! You must get to Daughter of Smoke and Bone soon!!!!

  19. We have very similar lists. I have only read Graceling on your list and it is one of my favorite series. The second was my favorite. :)

  20. o.O Read Graceling! One of my favorite series. Great characters.

    Here's my TTT for the week. Happy reading!

  21. Girl please. You KNOW how I feel about #2 and #3!
