Top Ten Tuesdays: Ten finished series I have yet to finish.

toptentuesday2

It’s Tuesday and we all know what that means; another Top Ten Tuesday’s post; *eeee * I love completing these lists but I must admit it seems to just flag up how many more books I need to read and I’m still not getting round to them all (slumps.) Today’s list focuses on series and I’m not a big series reader. The only one I’ve read is HP which is a bit ridiculous and there are so many out there I might have to finally get round to them

1)       The Lord of the Rings by J. R. Tolkien

After writing another TTT on books I thought I would never read my Dad implored me to rethink this one. We read it together when I was a lot younger and none of it made a lot of sense (especially with my Dad falling asleep mid-chapter.) However, I think it’s time to finally give this another go, especially as I have all of the books stacked on my bookshelf back in Silvy.

2)       The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

These books have and continue to do the rounds on wordpress and I feel I’m really missing out. These books have featured a number of times on my TTT lists and I think it’s one that has to be checked off of the TBR pile.

3)       Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella

I’m struggling a little with this list because many series books seem to be fantasy which is a genre I quite openly struggle with (despite it being my most requested review genre.) I didn’t realise that the film (Confessions of a Shopaholic) was originally a book, but now I know there’s a series there is definitely some binge series reading to be done.

4)       1Q84 by Haruki Murakami

This is such a cheat because I’m already halfway through this book but if I don’t finish it I think T will kill me (bless him, he has an open adoration for this author.) Although I have all the books in one it definitely still counts as a series and being over 1300 pages I want, no, need to get this finished.

5)       Nancy Drew by Carolyn Keene

JHSFSJKHFSJHJ I adored Nancy Drew, but my love for her came through a number of computer games, which I thought were brilliant, rather than the books. I’ve read a couple but want to get them all read and maybe reviewed for you lovely readers.

6)       The Maze Runner by James Dashner

This is a series that I rarely see reviewed and I’ve seen negative comments about the film. I’m intrigued to read and find my own opinion of them both.

7)       The Selection by Kiera Cass

Another book series that is continually cropping up on WP; I want to know if it lives up to the hype that has been built around this book.

8)       The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

This is a book that appears to have divided the book blogging community. It seems to be a marmite series; some love, some hate. Which side will I be on? God knows but I want to find out.

9)       The Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth

You might have noticed that many of these series I have yet to start let along finish so this could be a list that takes a bit of time. My Dad is currently reading/watching these (I can’t remember which) and whenever I go home he mentions it. If it’s something he suggests I pretty much always read it.

10)   The Host by Stephenie Meyer

Another series that seems to have divided opinion; I’m intrigued as always and I haven’t read the Twilight series so this will be my first encounter with this author.

So ten series I am almost all yet to start but interested to see what I can learn and read and enjoy hopefully. What would you add or take off from my list? Let me know in le comments.

    The Maze Runner is the only one I’ve finished, and I love it!

      Ahhh I definitely need to get this read then! I’ve been thinking about it for ages but have yet to get it finally read 🙂

    I liked Divergent but lost interest in book 2. But don’t even get me started on Lord of the Rings. The number of times I’ve started to read it …. I’ve finally accepted that it’s not for me 🙂

    The Maze Runner is coming on TV next week, and I’m hoping to catch it. Those books are also on my TBR list. Mixed reviews or no, this is one series I really want to start and finish!

      My Comments are going to the wrong comments at the moment which makes me sad but I really want to see the Maze Runner but thought I would read it first! 🙂

    I’ve only tried once with LOTR so I’m going to see how I feel about it yet! 🙂 I might read Divergent but it’s not top of the list 🙂

  6. September 8, 2015 / 8:52 pm

    Marissa Meyer and Maggie Stiefvater are two of my favorite authors right now. 🙂

    Check out my TTT.

    The love the Lunar Chronicles and I also really enjoyed The Host, The Selection, The Maze Runner, and Divergent. Hope you’ll enjoy them all 🙂

    I can’t wait for the Raven Boys to be complete and to get to it. A lot of people seem to love that series.

    • September 9, 2015 / 3:56 pm

      You seem a big series fan! I really wish I was because I always seeem to be missing out on really good books *cries* but I’m really excited to get started and start reviewing more!! 🙂

    I feel torn when it comes to the selection series. It was very repetitive but the background story of the country was what interested me. I feel like the story could have gone so much deeper than it did.

    • September 9, 2015 / 3:53 pm

      Hmmm sounds like it lacks some depth then? I’m intrigued because I’ve only seen really really positive things and wondered whether it’s just EXCELLENT but maybe not 🙂 thank you for commenting 😀 xx

    I read the Twilight books and disliked them, but I actually really enjoyed The Host. The world is really cool and the characters are pretty well developed. 🙂

    • September 17, 2015 / 9:57 am

      Ooooo might have to get hold of it!
      The film is coming out soon too and I want to get it read/reviewed soon! 🙂

    Maze Runner is pretty good. The first book was good at least. I wasn’t as impressed with the second one. The movie however is a pretty good adaptation. You should check it out! 🙂

    I’m about to start the Cinder series myself. The book just arrived a little while ago. And I just watched The Host the other day and reviewed it. Its not too bad but I’m really not a huge fan of Stephanie Meyer’s writing. I couldn’t get through the first few pages of Twilight when I was giving it a test run. So, I’m a little hesitant.
