Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Series That I Haven’t Yet Read

top ten tuesday

Each week, The Broke and the Bookish holds Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly book blogging meme. This week, we’re talking about series that have ended but that we still haven’t finished. I had a difficult time this week—I have a hard time abandoning a series because of my need-to-know-what’s-next. So I’m bending the rules just a tiny bit and making a list of finished series that I haven’t yet started:

    1. I want to read Mortal Instruments and Caster Chronicles soon, as I’ve heard so many good things about them. And I still can’t believe I haven’t made it through Lemony Snicket’s SOUE!

    1. Yeah, I’m still on the fence about reading that one. I know a lot of what happens in the series, and it doesn’t really seem like my cuppa.

      1. That was one of the first series I ordered copies of for my library when I got hired. That and Mortal Instruments, Divergent, and Rick Riordan’s stuff due to their popularity. Clare and Riordan are practically core collection at this point for YA. Our copies were old and tattered or missing, so we needed new ones!

  1. I haven’t read some of the series you mention here, but I have read and enjoyed the ones by Stephen King, Diana Gabaldon and Robert Jordan. I have to warn you these are books I consider dangerous. My need to know what happened next meant that important parts of my life went on hold while I finished them. Wonderful wonderful books, I’ll be rereading them soon, once I have a good period of free time. 🙂

    1. I do intend to eventually pick up the King and Gabaldon series, but I’m not sure about the Wheel of Time series. I’ve just heard so many bad things about the whole ordeal!

      And yes—I have that “need to know what happened next,” too. That’s one of the reasons I generally prefer stand-alones. lol

    1. I haven’t read any of them yet—and I’m not yet sure if I will, considering how many there are and that they were finished by someone different. I hear a lot of mixed revies of those.

    1. I’ve heard great things about Mortal Instruments and mixed reviews about the others. I do want to read Mortal Instruments and probably the Sookie Stackhouse novels at some point, but I’m just not sure about the Divergent books.

    1. heh….Yeah, I have heard the problems with Allegiant, and that’s part of the reason that I haven’t yet read the books. I’m just not sure about all that.

    1. I watched that show to its conclusion, and I’m damned if I know why. Only the first and second seasons were really any good, and I think those were the closest—those still very far off, from what I can tell—to the books. I’m considered giving them a try, but just haven’t had the time to start another series. Now that they’re done, I might. 🙂

  2. Out of those I recommend the Divergent series the most – followed by the Dark Tower series, which honestly I haven’t even finished yet but the first three books were stellar.

    1. I just don’t know about that Divergent series…I saw the first film, and I know what eventually happens to Tris, and I’m just not sure about that. But one day I might pick them up. 🙂

      I’ve heard great things about the Dark Tower series, but I just haven’t got round to them yet.

      1. Aw boo. I always say reading the books before seeing the movies is better – in the case of the Divergent series this is definitely true. Too bad we live in a world now where some of the best stories get ruined for us too soon. 😦
