I may be a touch forgetful of details I don’t consider “important,” however, when I saw the subject for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday with the Broke and Bookish, I was pretty sure I have done it before. And I kind of did… Look at this post if you don’t believe me.
In their defense, I took liberties with the previous topic and used an extra bit of subtext to include series that I have yet to start. And this time, the challenge is all about the top ten series I would like to start but haven’t. I am going to do it again anyway, although, there will be much repetition.
- Divergent series by Veronica Roth. I almost picked up Divergent the other day at Chapters. But then, I realized I would immediately want to read the next book, which is still a small fortune in hardcover and the third book in the series is not even out yet. So, I decided to wait until all 3 are out in paperback… Or at least at the library.
- A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin. I am not a big fantasy person. But, I did the CaRMS tour with a few people who were big fans of these books and kept talking about them. And we have a friend who is really into them. Maybe one day I will pick them up.
- The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings series by J.R.R. Tolkien. I picked up the Hobbit once during my undergrad, but never got around to reading it before it was due back in to the library. And I hated the LOTR movies… At least the one I saw. Patrick and I intended to see The Hobbit, though… We just didn’t get around to it. I keep hearing such good things. I just need to go to the library and find the time to hammer them out.
- The Uglies series by Scott Westerfield. Another dystopian sort of feel book, this has had a fair bit of hype in the blog world. And honestly, it does really look kind of intriguing.
- The Jessica Darling series by Megan McCafferty. This looks ridiculously teen cheesy to the extreme and yet it looks like a hilarious read. Everyone needs to read something light sometimes!
- An Irish Country Doctor series by Patrick Taylor. Patrick has read a few of the books in this series after stumbling upon them at the library. He was drawn to the Irish bit and the fact the author’s name is also Patrick, but they do sound quite interesting and he has quite enjoyed them.
- Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events series by Daniel Handler. Lots of people read these as kids… I somehow missed out, but found them while book shopping for C. I want to read them now, as silly as that may be.
- Delirium series by Lauren Oliver. More dystopia. The problem is many of the book blogs I read talk a lot about dystopian books and then I want to read said dystopian novels too. Ah, contagion!
- The Maze Runner series by James Dashner. Again dystopian/science fiction stuff. Again found on blogs. I still want to read it.
- The Giver series by Lois Lowry. Apparently some people read this in school. I did not, but I did see the first book in a collection of books at Chapters last week on one of their featured tables for some reason. Reminded me I should read it.
What are some series that you need to read?
