Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the bloggers of The Broke and the Bookish. This week we are listing those series that we'd like to start, that we plan on starting, but for some reason haven't gotten around to reading just yet.
Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews — I need more adult fiction and urban fantasy to my reading lists these days, and the Kate Daniels series promises both. I'm always in the mood for books featuring kick-ass heroines and I do like reading longer series (every once in a while).
Seven Realms series by Cinda Williams Chima — A YA high fantasy! I'll always and forever want to read those types of books. I like the idea of the two protagonists being from very different areas of life (a thief and a princess!), plus I've read so many positive reviews.
The Chemical Garden series by Lauren DeStefano — I am fairly intrigued by this plot, the covers are gorgeous, and the series is now complete. Ratings have been all over the map on this, so I'm curious to see where I'll fall.
Dreamblood series by N.K. Jemisin — Although I've only read one book so far by Jemisin (The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms), I really enjoyed it. I'd like to finish the Inheritance trilogy at some point, but I also really want to give her Dreamblood duology a go, since it's for an adult audience and only features two books.
Ruby Oliver series by E. Lockhart — I've heard amazing things about E. Lockhart's books, especially the Ruby Oliver ones. They've been compared to the Jessica Darling series (which I'm in the middle of and loving so far). And apparently Lockhart's books are pretty feminist. Sounds good to me.
Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness — I have heard nothing but praise for Ness' works. I came close to checking The Knife of Never Letting Go out from my library a few times. Then it was the Kindle daily deal. I am sure I'll love this series, so I just need to get started on it!
Fairytale Retellings series by Jackson Pearce — I love fairy tales. I love retellings. This sounds like a perfect match for me. Even better, from what I've read in reviews and promotional blurbs, these stories seem to be more companion novels than a full-out series.
Under the Never Sky series by Veronica Rossi — I want to see what all the hype is about these books. I haven't read many dystopians recently, but it sounds like this series might help revive my love for this genre. I'll hope for that.
The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss — This sounds like the kind of series I would have devoured a few years ago. I love my series to be long, complex, and high fantasy. Unfortunately I haven't read as many huge novels in the past year or so, but reading this series would be a step in the right direction!
Fairyland series by Catherynne M. Valente — I bought these as a Christmas gift for my little sister after reading so many positive reviews (but who am I kidding, I totally expected to eventually borrow them from her). I am not keen on reading many Middle Grade novels, but I'll make the exception for this series.
Have you read any of these series? Any I should move to the top of my TBR list? Let me know what series you want to start reading!
