Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they post a different topic that one of their bloggers answers, and they invite others to join in either by posting their answers as a comment or by creating their own blog post.
This week is all about series, and its a great topic for me because I have so many series on my TBR list. I’ve spent a lot of time reading for my course, but once that’s over I’ll have time to indulge in the books I’ve wanted to read that haven’t quite fitted in with my studies! I can’t remember the last series I got stuck in. I think it was A Song of Ice and Fire!
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
I feel like everyone’s read this series but me. I do love a good re-telling but I haven’t read enough of them!
My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante
I used to see this book everywhere when I worked in Waterstones, but I never got around to buying myself a copy. Italy is one of my favourite places, so a story set against the Italian backdrop sounds perfect.
Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice
I went through a phase where if there weren’t vampires, I wasn’t interested. But somehow I missed Lestat’s story!
Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
Rebel of the Sands, and its sequel, have been staring at me since I bought them a few weeks ago. It doesn’t help that they look so inviting.
Shades of Magic by V. E. Schwab
I included this book in one of my other TTT posts, but I wanted to include it again because I really need to read this book, and the rest of the series.
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
This is another author I haven’t read but have wanted to for ages. It looks like the fantasy books are doing a good job of creeping onto this list.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
I don’t think I need to say why I want to read this book. Except dolphins and depressed androids.
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
I read the first book in the series, after watching the TV show and its so good. Time-travel, romance, rebellion. It covers all the bases. I can’t wait to read the next one.
The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett
I watched the TV show for Pillars of the Earth a few years ago and loved it. I always meant to read the book but I never got round to it. Maybe this year I finally will.
Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
I’m one of those people who didn’t realise the film was based on a book series. I know, I know. But now that I do, I definitely want to read it.
What series are you looking forward to reading?
