Top Ten Tuesday

TTT – Series I Want To Finish

Top Ten Tuesday used to be a weekly post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. “It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.” This is definitely something I can understand and want to participate in.

This week’s topic was supposed to be favorite bookstores or bookstores I’d love to visit, but since I try not to buy too many books, I tend to avoid bookstores. It’s kind of like not going to a bar if you’re not going to drink. So instead, I want to talk about series that I’ve started reading but haven’t finished yet. Usually because I’m too busy reading ARCs or working my way through the books I already have checked out from the library, but hopefully I’ll be able to get to these soon.

  1. The Anna series by Kendare Blake. I only read the first book in this duology, but plan to read the second book soon.
  2. The Raybearer series by Jordan Ifueko. Again, I haven’t read the second book yet, and I loved the first book so much.
  3. The Gentleman Bastard series by Scott Lynch. It isn’t finished yet, but I’ve only read the first two books and they’re really good.
  4. The Kay Scarpetta series by Patricia Cornwell. So far I’ve read 6 books out of the 25 that are published (and counting), so I’ve still got a ways to go.
  5. The Temperance Brennan series by Kathy Reichs. Another long series, I’ve read 5 out of the 21 published books and find them so interesting.
  6. The Beasts of Prey series by Ayana Gray. The first book was so good, I can’t wait to read the sequel!
  7. These Hollow Vows by Lexi Ryan. I’m super excited for this sequel.
  8. The What If It’s Us series by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera. I loved the first book so much and can’t wait to dive into the second.
  9. The Nsibidi Scripts by Nnedi Okorafor. I was blown away by how good this book was, and can’t wait to read more of the series!
  10. The Graceling Realm series by Kristin Cashore. I adore this series, and even though the books don’t fully overlap, I enjoy each of them and can’t wait to read more.

What are some series that you want to read more of?

  1. I have the same problem trying to stick with series’ – those pesky ARCs always draw me in and my resolve crumbles and then I have stacks of them to get to. Sigh. I have the Locke Lamora series on my radar though I haven’t started it. I see you’ve got a series by Okorafor – I read Binti trilogy a couple years ago and just loved it. Didn’t think of looking for more books by her, but now I know…. Good luck on your goal!

    • I always start series and then stop for too long and then have to reread all the earlier books because I forgot what happened! And the Nsibidi series is fantastic (at least the first book)!

  2. Unless it’s a review copy, I think I tend to be relatively bad at finishing series. Feel like I have several on my shelf now that I have one book left to read and just haven’t made the time. Hopefully someday! 🙂

  3. Interesting looking series. I haven’t read a series in a long time – too distracted by Blog Tour books! I know what you mean about avoiding bookshops. I just go in to windowshop. It helps when you have a 4 year old who doesn’t like shopping so you have to leave any shop pretty swiftly!

    Have a great week!

  4. All of these look great. So many nice covers. I would really like to read all the books in Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove series but it has a lot of books. I’ve read most of the books in the Tempe Crabtree series, but would like to finish that as well. I never finished The Lunar Chronicles either, so that’s on my list.

    Thanks for sharing. Hope you get a chance to read the rest of these books.

  5. Great list, Leah! I think the only one I’ve read, so need to catch up on, from this list is Beasts of Prey & I desperately want to read the sequel. I have had The Lies of Locke Lamora on my TBR for ages, and definitely intrigued to give that series a start 😀

  6. I’d love to finish the Graceling Realms series too. I’ve only read Graceling, Fire, and Bitterblue. They’re some of my favorite books and I’d love to read the newest two.

    I have read both Anna Dressed in Blood books. I loved the duology so much. I will say, though, that the first one is my favorite! 😀
