Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish where people who love lists and books can share their favorites based on a certain topic each week.
This week’s topic is “new” series I’d like to start.
I’ll be honest. I am a series addict. It probably goes hand in hand with being a fantasy addict too. There are many series out there that I have heard great things about. I just have to finish the ones I’m currently working on. O_o Here’s a list of the top series I want to read, not just ones that are new.
Tammy Blackwell’s Timber Wolves and Shifters & Seers trilogies
I’ve just heard good things about Shifters & Seers, which is a spin-off of the Timber Wolves trilogy. So, of course I need to read both to get a full picture of that universe! Random fact: our professional basketball team in Minnesota is called the Timberwolves.
Karina Sumner-Smith’s Tower Trilogy
Author posts do work. Recently, Sumner-Smith posted on Not Yet Read about the lack of proper female friendships in fantasy and scifi. Well, I agree with that assessment and now I also want to read her book.
All other series by Juliet Marillier
I am currently in the middle of the Sevenwaters series by Marillier. I AM IN LOVE. I actually went out and bought the next three books in the series, which I pretty much never do. I have decided to give all of her other series a go.
Chris Willrich’s Gaunt and Bone trilogy
Alexandra Bracken’s The Darkest Minds series
This is a series I have heard a lot of good things about. All I know is kids with powers and it is incredibly fast paced, but that’s enough.
Sarah J. Maas’ Throne of Glass series
Marie Brennan’s Memoir by Lady Trent series
Jacqueline Carey’s Moirin Trilogy
I adore Carey’s Kushiel’s Legacy series, six books that take place in the same world as this trilogy (all part of the Kushiel’s Universe series). It is another set of books that I own, but I haven’t made an effort to read any more of Carey’s books. I need to fix this.
Rachel Bach’s Paradox series
This just seems like a bad-ass scifi series. The MC is a merc. How sweet? I almost bought this, but decided that I was purchasing too many books (I was buying the rest of the Sevenwaters series! ;)). I may try to borrow this from the library first.
Scott Lynch’s Gentlemen Bastard
The sad thing is that I have this on my kindle and just haven’t started it yet! And for some reason, despite coming out in 2006, this series seems to be popping up on blogs lately. Maybe because book three came out last year? Regardless, the reviews are really positive!
Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn Trilogy
The reason I have not started this yet is because I want to own it, and I particularly want the cover set above. I love the design of this. I would have to buy it online though, and it is kind of expensive for the entire set. I will though. I want.
As you can see, I have listed more than 10 series. I have many more in mind that I want to read too, I just can’t get enough. This is probably one of my favorite TTT topics in a long time.
Do you want to read any of these series? Have you read any of them? And are you obsessed with series like I am?
