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.
