Today we’re hooking up with the Broke and the Bookish for their Top Ten Tuesday. Here are 10 book series that we want to start
I know the prompt said NEW series, but I am a rule-breaker. Most of these series are more than two years old, but here’s what I want to start reading.
Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1, 2012) – this is the newest on my list. And, I have the first book thanks to a Kindle Daily Deal.
October Daye (Rosemary and Rue #1, 2009) – Amanda has demanded I read these books – but man, there’s a LOT of books…7? 8? That’s commitment. [Hello! You just read FEED, you should trust me by now. Also finish FEED before you read more series. Also more, I am still emotionally preparing myself for #8]
Abhorsen (Sabriel #1, 1996) – Apparently people love these books. I think they have zombies?
The Giver (Giver #1, 1993) – okay, I have actually read the first of these books, eons ago. But, who knew there were 3 more?!
The Giver- Unlike my sister I haven’t even read the first one. I feel really behind the times here.
The Madman’s Daughter (The Madman’s Daughter #1, 2013). I’ve been really into the Gothic reads lately. Maybe its Halloween coming?
Finishing School (Etiquette and Espionage #1, 2013). Combining tea parties with spy technique? Yes please.
Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes series (The Beekeeper’s Apprentice #1, 1994). Ok, so this has been around a long time-but there are still new books coming out! Retired Sherlock Holmes plus a teenage detective sounds so fun to me. Maybe this will keep the wait for the next BBC Sherlock season from being too painful?
Tawny Man/The Fitz and the Fool Trilogy Robin Hobb. I have an ARC of the Fool’s Assassin, #1 of the Fitz and Fool Trilogy that was just released this fall. However, I don’t think I’m going to appreciate it until I read the back stories-so to the library I go!
Any opinions on what should be read first? Besides Holly reading Newsflesh clearly. Speaking of October Daye, I’m nearly emotionally ready to try to read the Winter Long-anyone want to hold my hand virtually through this book? I know she’s going to break my heart again.
