Top Ten Tuesday: Ten series I’ve been meaning to start

Happy Top Ten Tuesday! Today is a freebie week, so I thought I’d go with ten series I’ve been meaning to start. I feel like I’m always meaning to do something bookish, whether it’s starting a new book or looking into an author or writing a bunch of reviews (though I have been better about that recently). At some point, when I’m caught up on everything else in my life, I’d love to give these ten series a shot.

✨ Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan. I’ve been meaning to start this series for years. Last time I was hanging out with my boyfriend’s much younger cousins, one of them was talking about how much he loves this series and honestly, hearing this eleven-year-old kid talk about how great the books are just made me want to read it even more.
✨ The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh. Twitter’s always all abuzz about this series! It’s got mixed reviews from my friends and following on Goodreads, but for better or worse, people are always talking about it.
✨  The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater. This is probably heresy or something, but I think I’m the only book blogger alive who’s never read a Maggie Stiefvater book? Everybody is always raving about how awesome her books are, and yet I’ve never taken the time to read them.
✨ The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. Even though each book is a 600+ page monstrosity.
✨  Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake. This is another series with mixed reviews, but it also sounds amazing, so…
✨ The Archived by Victoria Schwab. Even though the next book is like 50 years away.  (This is the only reason I haven’t read it yet.)
✨  The Wolves of Mercy Falls by Maggie Stiefvater. See above.  I feel so bad. This has been on my TBR since 2012.
✨  The Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson. I have literally all of the books on my living room bookshelf (boyfriend is a big fan) but the sheer size of them always scares me away!
✨  The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee. This is another one that, good or bad, everybody is always talking about.
✨  Replica by Lauren Oliver. I used to love Lauren Oliver’s books, but I haven’t read any in years. I have her Replica series on my library wishlist, so eventually, I’ll get there.

What series have you been meaning to start? Which one do you think I should dive into first?

    I have The Wolves of Mercy Falls on my list and I’ve only recently heard about The Illuminae Files but shocker that is going on my list too! I’ve read The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness and am pleased that the other two are already written as I want to read those. I tend to get invested in series without realising they’re series and then get frustrated when I find out that the other books are years from coming out! Kind of like what I did Monday when I finished The Cruel Prince… argh!

    OMG I don’t even know where to start…The Wrath and the Dawn–SO GOOD! And it’s only a duology, so not a ton of reading. Wolves of Mercy Falls is good, but the Raven Cycle is way better. It’s on my re-read list. Illuminae Files–ALSO SO GOOD!! The books are long but you really fly through them, because some pages have little to no text on them.

    The Raven Cycle is on my TBR but I don’t have it. Three Dark Crowns and the Illuminae series are as well, and while I’ve got TDC, I have both Illuminae and Gemina on my Kindle just waiting to be read, mocking me each time I pick up a different book.

      I actually read the entire Raven Cycle series right after I posted this and I loved it! I highly recommend it.

      Haha, I know how that goes with the books on your Kindle mocking you! There are so many books on my Kindle that I’ve been meaning to read and just haven’t gotten around to yet. I hope you’ll have time to read Illuminae & Gemina soon!

    Anything by Brandon Sanderson is so good! Unique magic systems, characters to fall in love with and breath-taking action scenes! You won’t be able to put his books down!
