Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week is the Top Ten Series I’d Like To Start But Haven’t Yet.
I mentioned a little while ago in a post that I have so many series on the go that I have yet made time to finish, and yet there are so many other series that I have had my eyes on for a while not and just haven’t gotten around to starting them yet. Here are just a few of them in no particular order.
- The Hollows by Kim Harrison. This series was recommended to me recently by my best friend. I bought the first book but haven’t had time to read it yet.
- Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling. Now in my defense these books came out just a few years too late for me to be in the Harry Potter craze age. I have watched a few of the movies, the first three or four, and I enjoyed them enough to want to read the books as well as finish watching the movies at some point.
- Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. I remember watching this series on TV when I was younger and really enjoyed it, but I just never got around to reading the books. At least I don’t ever remember reading them.
- Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry. I have wanted to read these for years. Recently, as in about six months ago, I managed to find all four of the books, bought them and yet they have sat on my shelf ever since. They will be read this year no matter what.
- A Song of Ice And Fire by George R.R. Martin. Now I did start reading the first book a while ago, like when the first season hit TV but I just never finished it and didn’t get far enough in to count it as being read. I really want to read these soon.
- Camulod Chronicles by Jack Whyte. I love anything to do with King Arthur, medieval England and knights. Add in the fact I got these books for free from someone and I am a happy camper. Just haven’t gotten around to reading them.
- Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan. I bought the first six or so of these books during a sale several years ago and then I put them on my shelf with all intention of reading them. Well clearly that plan went out the window. Though I have kept up with purchasing all of the books as they come out.
- Dark Tower by Stephen King. I remember someone telling me these were good, kept looking at them at the store but kept not buying them. But recently I picked them up at a used book store.
- Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne James. I love the movie version and felt kind of dumb for not realizing it was based on a book series. Now I need to get these books so I can read them.
- Percy Jackson and the Olympians & Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan. Lumping these two series together since they do share some characters and are written by the same author. I love Greek mythology so these books appeal to me for that reason alone. Plus the movie was pretty good too.
These are only some of the series that I want to read and just haven’t had time to get around to starting yet. With these on top of the series I have already started and the various stand alone novel floating about on my bookshelves I have a lot of great reading ahead of me, I just need to find the time. What series do you want to read but haven’t quite started yet?
