TTT: Series I Want to Start


June 20: Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start But Haven’t (topic originally done March 2013) — anyone else have a mile long list of series to start like I do??

I’ve tried to pick series that have been out for a while or at the very least have a couple of instalments already out, so I’ve ignored a lot of recently released first instalments which I want to read as well. I’ve put a couple of points for each that have intrigued me but feel free to correct any misassumptions and tell me which series are/ aren’t worth the time.

  1. Great list! I really like the Kate Daniels series! I hope you’ll enjoy it too! Really want to read Daughter of the Forest as well! I’ve heard such good things about her books! I haven’t heard about the Taj Mahal Trilogy yet, but it looks amazing, I’ll have to add it to my TBR!

  2. OMG I LOVED the Kate Daniels ones. They aren’t necessarily the best and I haven’t read them in forever, but when I was in College my roommate and I devoured these. ALSO I love the Sevenwaters one, I mean the first one totally captivates you and the next ones are just great. I haven’t read those in a while either though 😦

    I’m with you on Illuminae and the Partik Rothfuss ones 😀

  3. Great list! I read the Earths Children series as a teenager and I absolutely loved it. I’ve recently put it back on my TBR shelf so that I can reread it sometime in the near future.

  4. The Unwind series has been on my TBR for a LONG time (well actually, I didn’t KNOW it was a series until recently, so the first book has been on my TBR at least!). I read the first Dorothy book and MEH. Then I read the first book in her other series, Stealing Snow, and I was like NO!!! So I think I’m gonna chill on Danielle Paige for a while. I haven’t read Gemina yet. I’m a bad blogger 😦 BUT I didn’t think Illuminae was worth THAT much hype. It was good and I liked the format, but the characters weren’t amazing or different in any way to me. I hope you like it better than I did!!
