MISC: Top Ten Tuesday- 20th June 2017

toptentuesday2

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

16096824

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

13586707

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

43763

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

24934065

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

22055262

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

6068551

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

386162

I don’t think I need to say why I want to read this book. Except dolphins and depressed androids.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

10964

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

5043

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

7619057

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?

  1. I feel like almost everyone has been saying ACOTAR, but it is really a great series. Maybe not even that, SJM is just a flippin’ genius when it comes to characters and world building. You should definitely read them at some point. As far as the rest of your list goes I am in the same boat. There are so many books and so little time.

  2. Outlander is on my list today, too. I’ve seen it on a ton of other lists, so we’re in good company 🙂 I’ve actually read the first book in the series, but it was so long ago that I’ll have to re-read it before I can continue on with the series.

    Happy TTT!
