Yes we are going to go down this rabit hole, strap in because it’s going to be a journey. Todays Top Ten Tuesday the amazing theme created by the amazing The Broke and the Bookish is *dramatic drum roll* Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start But Haven’t.
Whats that? Oh don’t mind me I’m just laughing like a loon and slowly rocking back and forth as the ever growing pressure of my TBR crushes me. Is it not enough that not only do I have so many unfinished series but there’s another butt load of books that I haven’t
even started AND the Authors have the audacity to keep earning a living by writing even more books and adding to their world! DONT THEY KNOW I AM A SMALL PERSON WITH LARGE AMBITIONS AND I MUST ADD ALL THE BOOKS TO MY TBR?! You’d think they’d have some consideration.
Okay onto the list, I’ll try to keep it short because we could be here all day. Starting with series I own but I’m ignoring.
Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier – The Precious Stone trilogy
I think it’s about a time traveller? In a dress? Most likely magic? Look I bought it way to long ago and just liked the covers. I do plan on starting this this year.
Captive Prince by CS Pacat
Yes it’s an Aussie author, yes it’s m/m romance, yes it’s short, no I don’t have a valid excuse for not reading this yet. I think I’ve put this book on my TBR every month of this year and it’s not helping. It’s so short and I’ve seen the Athor around at events so I do really want to hurry up and read it.
Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Page
A Dorothy retelling where someone tries to kill her? I so hope there’s a dog side kick. I have book 1 and 2 ready to read. I’ve put this off because I’m scared it’ll be a meh 3 star read and I don’t want to be disappointed. I will start these this year too (I’m probably going to say that for all of these, a girl can dream).
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
BEFORE everyone starts yelling at me I promise this is high on my TBR and I’m planning on starting it this month! I can feel your disappointed stares every time I ignore the caps lock comments telling me to PICK THE THING UP. It’s worked though! Without the constant threats from online friends telling me I need this book in my life I probably would have put it off for another millennia.
Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan
Rick of Rick why must you have so many amazing books out. I read Percy Jackson for the first time this year and enjoyed it so much! I love the mix of mythology and awesome characters and can’t wait to start the spin-off series.
Chaos Walking trilogy by Partick Ness
Me and Ness are a mess, I’m really wary about jumping into this because his contemporary spec-fic is always a hit or miss for me BUT this is fantasy so maybe it won’t be as messy? Atleast thats what I’m hoping.
I also have really low expectations so it has every chance to blow me away.
Ruined by Amy Tintera
Assassins anyone? I have book 1 & 2 sitting on my shelf, it’s not like I’m unsure of the writing I enjoyed Amy’s Reboot series a few years ago so there should be nothing stopping me from diving into an Assassin story EXCEPT I’ve heard a lot of good and bad reviews so it was pushed to the bottom of the pile. I do think I’ll love it though, it sounds right up my ally I just need to start the goddamn thing.
Are any of these still on your TBR?
Who’s joining me in freezing time for a bit so we can all catch up on all the series minus the impending terror that is a new release? OR god forbid a spin off series of the world you haven’t even started.
I’m looking at you Cassandra Clare and Leigh Bardugo I KNOW you don’t have to read all the series to understand whats happening but us bookworms have to because Cameos = spoilers.
