Top Ten Series I'd Like To Start But Haven't Yet

1. Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin - I'm getting there. I love the HBO series A Game of Thrones, and that inspired me to read the books. So I have the books; I just need to actually read them. It's only a matter of time before I fully commit to reading the entire series through (or at least the books that are out at this time).


2. The Curse Workers by Holly Black - Is it horrible that I have yet to read any Holly Black? I haven't even read Tithe. It's inexcusable. I actually am more interested in her Curse Workers series than her A Modern Faerie Tale series. It just sounds like my type of series. I just need to find the time and get through some other books first...


3. The Maze Runner by James Dashner - I swear I'm going to get around to the first book sometime real soon. This series fascinates me for some reason, and I have high hopes that it won't be just another typical dystopian series. Please don't let these hopes be crushed!


4. Whistling Tor by Juliet Marillier - Heart's Blood, the first book of this series, is a Beauty and the Beast retelling. Need I say more? I've read her Daughter of the Forest, and I cannot wait to get my hands on this one.


5. The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss - Because there needs to be more fantasy in my life, especially high fantasy. Am I intimidated by the size of this book? Heck no! Bring it on, Rothfuss! Impress me with a new epic series that I can fall in love with!


6. The Immortals by Tamora Pierce - It's Tamora Pierce. Nuff said.


7. Birthmarked by Caragh M. O'Brien - I really want to try out this series. It's another dystopian series that I really hope is worth my time.


8. Shades of London by Maureen Johnson - It's about a modern Jack the Ripper so I'm pretty psyched! Is that weird?  


9. Ph├Ędre's Trilogy by Jacqueline Carey - I'm almost reduced to tears when I think of all the books I have that I have yet to read and still need to read. Along with my bookshelves, I have like a million books on my Ipad too. The pressure! Kushiel's Dart is one of them, and I have to get to it. At first glance, it doesn't look like much, but I've heard so many good things about it. I need more time!


10. The Light Isles by Juliet Marillier - Am I becoming obsessed? Possibly. I just want to explore more of the amazingness that is Marillier's writing. 

What is everyone else's Top Ten this week?

  1. I haven't read many of those series - but the Song of Ice and Fire series I'm in the middle of (and the tv series is so similar to the book that watching it is the same as reading the books).

    1. yeah, I started reading the first book of the Song of Ice and Fire series and it was exactly like the start of the first episode. It was like deja vu. I cannot wait for the third season! :)

    1. I've been waiting too long to start the series. I'm a little nervous about it being told from a male POV. That usually doesn't go well in my experience.

  3. Curseworkers, Whistling Tor, and Light Isles are AMAZING. Especially the last two! :D I also really want to start the Song of Fire and Ice, Maze Runner, the Kingkiller Chronicles, and Shades of London. OH, I also read the Immortals a few years back and really liked them, although I know that die-hard fans of Pierce claim it isn't her best work. *shrug* I hope you enjoy it, though! :)

    1. The Immortals is Pierce's best Tortall work, in my opinion. I read all her YA books and do consider myself a knowledgeable and die-hard fan of Pierce's original Tortall books and I just LOVE Daine and her story arc. :)

  4. So many good series, Cort! Whichever will you start with? A Song of Ice and Fire so you can be prepared for the show (less than a month!) Obvs you know my opinion of The Immortals. I'm excited to read The Kingkiller Chronicle as well. :)

    1. There's no way I will be able to catch up in time for the third season. Which I am so excited for. Or wait, how far's the show into the series?
