The topic for this week is Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start But Haven’t. I have probably missed a lot and decided to separate them according to if to the authors, depending if I have read any of their other books or not.
Authors I Have Not Read Before
- Charlotte Holmes by Brittany Cavallaro
I love Sherlock Holmes and I have watched almost all its adaptations. However, even though I have read some of the books, I am a bit hesitant about reading these type of books. Charlotte Holmes has had great reviews and it has picked my curiosity.
- Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I have heard nothing but good things about this series and even though the books are big, there is a lot of material like entry logs, that make the reading experience much more diverse and fun. I have also read that the audiobook is amazing. To be honest, those two are authors I still have to try and I have heard great things about them, so I wanna read their others series too.
Series from the authors I wanna read: Starbound and The Nevernight Chronicles
- The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
I love fairy tales and retellings but haven’t actually read many; don’t even know why. The Lunar Chronicles has received great reviews but I didn’t even start Cinder, which I actually own.
- Shades of Magic by V.E. Schwab
Or any V.E. Schwab series, really. I decided on picking this one up first and I hope I can start soon (I added it to a couple of TBRs and still nothing). Which one is your favourite?
Other series from V.E. Schwab I wanna read (basically all): The Archived, Villains and Monsters of Verity.
- The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
Another example of retelling. And this one I am more curious about because even though I know the original fairy tale, I haven’t heard so many retellings about it, and it is not as popular as other fairy tales (probably because it’s not a Disney movie), as far as I know.
Other books from Renne Ahdieh I wanna read: Flame in the Mist
Series From Authors I Have Read Before
- A Court of Thones and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
I have only read two books from the Throne of Glass series but I enjoyed them more than I thought I would, so I am very excited to read her other series. However, I first wanted to finish ToG before throwing myself into ACOTAR which I probably end up doing anyway.
- The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead
I loved Vampire Academy, at least the four books I have read (I plan on finishing it someday) but I haven’t been able to read Bloodlines, since it’s a spin-off. When I heard about Glittering Court I was curious and it was great that I didn’t have to read anything else to start this new series but, as you can see, I still haven’t tried it. I did not see many good reviews either, so that put me back a bit; still I want to read it.
Other series by Richelle Mead I wanna read: Vampire Academy and Bloodlines
- Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan
I have been meaning to catch up on Rick Riordan’s books for a long time but never actually went for it. I tried marathoning the Percy Jackson series twice but I always stop before book 5 so I still have that to finish. I wanna read all of Riordan’s series, as I love mythology, and I am interested in all of them but I wanna read the books in order so even though I could probably read Kane Chronicles, for example, I’m not going to yet.
Other series by Rick Riordan I wanna read: Kane Chronicles, Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard and Thr Trials of Apollo. Bonus: The 39 Clues
- Summer by Jenny Han
I love love love Lara Jean so I need to read more of her books. No other explanation here.
Other series by Jenny Han I wanna read: Burn for Burn
- The Young Elites by Marie Lu
Technically, I had read half of the book before but I fell into a reading slump at that time and I remember almost nothing about it. I have also read Legend and even though I enjoyed it (have to finish it too) I can feel they’re both very different. I’m also intrigued by the main character in The Young Elites, which is not your typical one.
Other series by Marie Lu I wanna read: Legend
Have you read any of those? Which ones do you recommend?
