Top 10 Tuesday | Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start!


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely people at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s prompt is to talk about 10 book series that we have been meaning to start but haven’t yet! Anything that involves a series is always going to get me talking as I’m a big fan of reading series but there are so many I keep meaning to finally read and haven’t. Here are 10 I really, really must get to soon! (She says….)

1. Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor

Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1)  Days of Blood & Starlight (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #2)  Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #3)

I’ve read Laini’s most recent release Strange the Dreamer and I fell in love with her magical writing. I own this trilogy on my Kindle so there’s really no excuse as to why I haven’t read these yet! Ps. How gorgeous are these covers?!

2. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

The Bone Season (The Bone Season, #1)  The Mime Order (The Bone Season, #2)  The Song Rising (The Bone Season, #3)

I’ve heard nothing but excellent things about this series so far and I’m really intrigued by what I know about them. I own the first two books so it’s probably about time I indulged!

3. Blood For Blood trilogy by Catherine Doyle

Vendetta (Blood for Blood, #1)  Inferno (Blood for Blood, #2)  Mafiosa (Blood for Blood, #3)

Again, a series I’ve heard nothing but brilliant things about. For some reason this trilogy hadn’t been on my radar at all until this year and I’m really intrigued by it! This one is complete now so it will hopefully be a great binge this summer!

4. The Next Together duology by Lauren James

  The Next Together (The Next Together, #1)  The Last Beginning (The Next Together, #2)

I’ve picked these books up several times and for some reason never actually bought them. They look really unique inside and different to your normal novel. Plus who doesn’t love a bit of time travel and romance?

5. The Winners trilogy by Marie Rutkoski

The Winner's Curse (The Winner's Trilogy, #1)  The Winner's Crime (The Winner's Trilogy, #2)  The Winner's Kiss (The Winner's Trilogy, #3)

A while ago I was constantly adding and deleting this series from my Goodreads TBR but a few months ago I heard one of my favourite authors recommending this as one of her favourite ever trilogies and I knew I had to add it back for good!

6. Mara Dyer trilogy by Michelle Hodkin

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1)  The Evolution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #2)  The Retribution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #3)

When I first started book blogging everyone seemed to be raving about this trilogy. I was seeing the name Mara Dyer everywhere and these mysterious covers certainly caught my attention. I don’t know that I’ve dabbled with many paranormal fantasy novels but I’m going to give the genre a try with these one day.

7. The Conqueror’s Saga by Kiersten White

And I Darken (Conqueror's Saga, #1)  Now I Rise (The Conqueror's Saga, #2)

And I Darken is one of those books I got really excited about, then loved it when my copy arrived and somehow never remembered to read it. I’ve heard some absolutely fantastic things about this book and the second book in the saga is due for release soon so now may be the time to jump in!

8. The Paper Magician trilogy by Charlie N. Holmberg

The Paper Magician (The Paper Magician Trilogy, #1)  The Master Magician (The Paper Magician Trilogy, #3)  The Glass Magician (The Paper Magician Trilogy, #2)

It is no secret that I love a book with some aspect of magic involved and my dear friend Steph recently recommended this trilogy to me. I’ve not seen much about it but I’m definitely interested in trying it out!

9. The Wrath and the Dawn duology by Renee Ahdieh

The Wrath & the Dawn (The Wrath & the Dawn, #1)  The Rose & the Dagger (The Wrath & the Dawn, #2)

I recently read Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh and I fell in love with her gorgeous writing and world building. I’ve seen a lot of excitement about this duology and I immediately bought these gorgeous covers when they were released in April.

10. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

  A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)  A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2)  A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3)

I am still yet to read a book written by Maas and I’m not entirely sure if I will. I do own the first two books in the ACOTAR series but I’ve heard some extremely conflicting reviews of the books and so I’m not sure whether I will read them. I may give them a go one day but they certainly aren’t top of the pile at the moment.


What series are still lurking on your TBR?

Have you read any of the series I mentioned above?

  2. Many of these series are on my TBR as well, particularly The Wrath and the Dawn duology. I hope you get to And I Darken! I read it towards the end of last year and really enjoyed it! Just keep in mind that is a historical fiction, which is typically slower paced. This reminded me that I need to go out to get book #2!

  3. The Bone Season is SO GOOD! I highly recommend that one. I forgot all about Daughter of Smoke and Bone and also The Winner’s trilogy too. I own books from both of those series and need to read them as well.

  4. Oooh, great list! We had a series in common with Mara Dyer. 🙂 That one made it onto my T10T as well, though several of these are also on my TBR. I really highly recommend ACOTAR – the first book is pretty good, but things really pick up in the second book. Here is my T10T!

    Oh, and if you are on Facebook and like buddy reads, my FB group Life & Lit actually picked The Bone Season for our July BOTM. 🙂

  5. I would like to read The Bone Season, and the Renee Ahdieh duology looks interesting. I’ve always meant to go back and finish Linda Buckley-Archer’s trilogy. I loved Gideon the Cutpurse, but never read the second or third.
