Top Ten Tuesday is an awesome meme previously hosted by the lovely folks @ The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is top ten:
Series I’d Like to Finish Someday
I always like to think I would give books or series a second chance (I’m a mood reader) so there are a fair few I know I would like to get back to someday. Sometimes I can be so hyped for a release of a sequel, but then for some reason I just don’t get to it. I’m not sure why. Sometimes I think the hype maybe kills it for me, or maybe I am just a contrary person… who knows!
Anyway, I’m rambling on here so before I go off in too much of a tangent, here are some book series I would like to finish… someday! The books pictured below are the ones I got waylaid from.
1. Ashes to Ashes by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian
I really don’t know what the problem was with this series. I read the first two books and absolutely adored them. Was waiting and waiting on the third and final book in the ‘Burn for Burn’ series and bought it the instant it went live on Kindle. And then… I didn’t read it. The book came out four years ago and I still haven’t read it. I suck. 🙁
2. Dust to Dust by Karina Halle
Yes, the placement of ‘Dust to Dust’ after ‘Ashes to Ashes’ was totally deliberate! 😉 The final book in Karina Halle’s epic ‘Experiment in Terror’ series. I read all the other eight main books in the series (and all the sort stories and novellas) but I haven’t yet read the very last book. I’m not sure why either. Maybe I don’t want the series to be over but it has been four years, I think it’s time I got over it…
3. Winter by Marissa Meyer
I’m starting to notice a theme here… I tend to somehow get lost somewhere around the last book in a series. I did start reading ‘Winter’ but then I thought I should read ‘Fairest’ first. However, I then didn’t get round to it and now I’ve kinda lost the thread with the Lunar Chronicles series. I’m thinking a re-read from the beginning might be in order!
4. Raven Flight by Juliet Marillier
I adore Juliet Marillier’s writing and I really did enjoy the first book in the ‘Shadowfell’ series but despite owning the second and third books, I still haven’t gotten around to reading them yet. Someday…
5. Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead
I’m such a huge fan of the Vampire Academy books and I was so happy Adrian was going to be so prominent in the spin-off (he’s my favourite!) However, I stopped reading at book four. I own books five and six but have to crack them open.
6. Magic Breaks by Ilona Andrews
I love the ‘Kate Daniels’ series but I think I ended up getting a bit bogged down with the series and I haven’t read any of the books from ‘Magic Breaks’ onwards. I really need to get back to it someday because I love the world and the characters.
7. Casket of Souls by Lynn Flewelling
Although the later books never managed to reach the dizzying heights of the earlier ‘Nightrunner’ novels, I still enjoyed them quite a bit. I haven’t read the last two books in the series and I really need to get on that post-haste.
8. Apocalypse to Go by Katharine Kerr
The ‘Nola O’Grady’ series was very strong to start and definitely a different kind of urban fantasy series. I have only read the first two books though. I’m keen to get back to this series because I adored the ‘Deverry’ series by the author and I know she can really deliver an epic story.
9. Masquerade by Laura Lam
We were waiting a long time for the last entry in the ‘Micah Grey’ trilogy (due to the author being dropped from her publisher). I guess I waited so long I kinda forgot about it? It did finally come out last year and I keep meaning to buy it and complete the set.
10. Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
I know, I know… I’m totally terrible! So many people have recommended this series and I did read (and love!) the first book. I really, seriously, completely, and utterly need to get back to the ‘Grisha Trilogy’ especially since I am desperate to read ‘Six of Crows’!!
I love the Kate Daniels series! There are a lot of books, and I’ve kind of lost track of the story, but they are really good.
