Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is a freebie, meaning we can choose whatever we feel like writing about. Since I’ve still been thinking about my New Year’s resolutions and whether they’re going to end up being doable, I thought I’d tie my top 10 list this week to one of my resolutions: Reading new-to-me series all in a row, rather than reading individual books in a series as they become available. You can read more about this resolution here.
Here are the series I’ve yet to start (or in some cases, continue past the first book to the end) — but when I do finally read them, I want to read them all in one big gulp, bingeing from start to finish:
Note on images: With the exceptions of #1 and #10 below, all photos are taken by me. What can I say? I was bored and felt like playing!
1) Curse Workers series by Holly Black: I’ve heard these are great, and I’m looking forward to finally reading them!
2) Miss Peregrine series by Ransom Riggs: I’ve read the first book, but by now I’ll need to start again at the beginning if I want to appreciate the rest of the trilogy.
3) The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss: Friends have been pushing me to start this series for years now, but I refuse to begin until I know the final book is on its way
4) Imperial Radch series by Ann Leckie
5) The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh: The second book of this duology comes out this spring, and I’m going to wait until #2 is available before I start the first book.
6) The Last Policeman by Ben Winters: I’ve had these books for a while now, and just need to convince myself to get started.
7) Buffy, season 9 graphic novels: I have all of season 9 and most of season 10, but haven’t read any yet. I enjoy these most when I read a complete season all the way through… and I just need to pick a week to do it.
8) The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch: I guess this series isn’t completely finished yet, but I suppose I could read the first three and then see if I want to stay on the bandwagon.
9) The Chronicles of Amber by Roger Zelazny: I read books 1 – 5 of this series so long ago, but never read 6 – 10. I think I should start over again at the beginning and see it through, finally.
10) The Neapolitan Novels by Elena Ferrante: I haven’t read any of these, although I do have a copy of My Brilliant Friend on my Kindle. I keep hearing how wonderful these books are, and I think I should make a point of at least starting the series in 2016.
