Top Ten Tuesday: Series I Want to Start Reading

I'm pretty excited about this week's Top Ten Tuesday.  As it turns out there are about a zillion series that I want to start reading, but haven't gotten around to quite yet.  There are about a zillion more that I have started that I need to continue, but that's another topic for another day.  This whole series thing is a slippery slope, I'll tell you.  Here are the top ten series I need to start - hopefully sooner and not later!

1. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon - I've had a good chunk of this series taking up space on my shelves for some time.  So long that I'm actually getting rid of all but the first book because they're all immense hardcovers, and I'm convinced that maybe I'll have better luck if I just read them on my Kindle! 

2. The Dark Tower by Stephen King - I have almost all of this series on my shelves, too, but have never read more than the first few pages of The Gunslinger. 

3. Divergent by Veronica Roth - This is one of those books I had to pick up because everybody seems to be so in love with it, but it's been waiting on my shelf for a year now.  Fail.

4. Delirium by Lauren Oliver - This series is just wrapping up, and this book was one of my first Kindle acquisitions when I got it at Christmas.  Looking forward to getting into this one!

5. Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz - Before my dad drives me crazy about reading them!

6. Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl - What with all the movie excitement, I may have purchased all four of the books when they were a Kindle Daily Deal a few weeks back.  Now, here's hoping I actually like them!

7. Shades of London Maureen Johnson - I may have grabbed The Name of the Star when it was the Kindle Daily Deal last Sunday.  I'm pretty sure all the bloggers I follow loved it, and the next book in line just came out.  Time to get on it!

8. The Flavia de Luce mysteries by Alan Bradley - Pretty much all of my blogging friends seem to love Flavia, too.  I finally managed to score a copy of The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie at a local library book sale not long ago, so I can finally get started!

9. Shatter Me by Taherah Mafi -  I'm so right on the edge of going on a YA reading spree.  I've been reading lots of YA blogs about all the great books coming out in the recent past, but I haven't been reading much of it.  I think my Kindle is opening the door to a new period of YA obsession, and I kind of can't wait.  This is one that I was super excited to see on sale for Kindle (and I may have a slight obsession with buying books on sale for my Kindle.  I'm not sure you may have noticed...LOL!)

10. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi - See above comment. ;-)

What series are you excited to start reading?  And even better yet, what other series would you recommend I read? 


  1. I have to read most of these, too!

    I do really love Divergent! I was pretty obsessed with it when I first read it. I'm not quite as thrilled with Insurgent, but I am definitely excited about the third book anyway.

    I've decided I don't really like the "softer" love dystopians. I only read the first of both the Delirium and the Matched series.

  2. So, I'm actually in the middle of several of these series. I'm up-to-date on a couple of them, too (go, me!) and I have to say that I LOVE The Shades of London and Under the Never Sky. Both are favorites of mine.

    A YA reading spree sounds like lots of fun, by the way :)

  3. I want to read Beautiful Creatures too. You should definitely read UTNS! It's beyond amazing :)

  4. these are some great series. I read the first Outlander, but they're all pretty big and daunting. I need to read the next one. I do want to read Under the Never Sky and Shatter Me, too, because my blog partner loves them. good luck :) ~daphne

  5. I've read the first Flavia book. I love a lot of books from series but have kind of given up on keeping up with any of them.

  6. Divergent, Delirium, and Shatter Me were fantastic! I'm getting to Under the Never Sky soon. Can't wait!

  7. Divergent is on my list too! I'm not brave enough to tackle the Dark Tower Series (and not because they're long- because I don't like nightmares.) But Outlander? Oh. My heart belongs to Outlander. You won't be disappointed!

  8. LOVE Divergent, Under the Never Sky, Delirium, and Beautiful Creatures. They're all fantastic books! Great list!

  9. Thanks for commenting on my blog!

    I enjoyed Divergent and Insurgent, but it didn't blow me quite away as much as it seems to for others. I wasn't even sure what the "point" of it all was, but then at the end of Insurgent more about their society is revealed and that really changed the face of the series for me, in a good way, so I'm hoping it will end with a strong concluding book!

  10. I wish I'd participated in this Tuesday's topic! It's a fun one! You list several I am interested in trying too. Beautiful Creatures and Divergent among them. I've wanted to try the Dark Towers series forever.

  11. WOOH! Divergent! That series is a great one, i hope you enjoy it! :) I also want to start Under the Never Sky as well, so many books to read!
