Top Ten Tuesday – A Couple Series I’m Dying to Read and A Couple I’d Like To Burn

TTT-Big2 (1)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog event hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and today’s topic is about book series! Today I talked mostly about books that I really want to read and continue the series, but there are a couple books on this list that I’d rather not read. Hope you enjoy!

1. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman.

I actually just finished reading Hartman’s off-shoot series Tess of the Road, without realizing that it belonged to a world that had already been created. I loved the book and now I need to go back and read the other series!

2. Given to Earth by Mindy McGinnis. 

I know I keep talking about this book but I really need to read it. I’m a big fan of McGinnis and this world is just too cool for me to let go of the series.

3. Razorland Series by Ann Aguire.

I read this series, or at least most of it, many many years ago and really enjoyed the world. I would love to be able to come back to it some day and reread and finish it.

4. The Oz Sreies by L. Frank Baum.

My sisters and I were obsessed with this series for a couple of years, but it’s been so long I’m sure I would have so much fun rereading them and trying to finish the series. But it has like 12+ books so who knows!

5. Eden Conquered by Joelle Charbonneau.

I loved the first book of this duology! So yes I am on my library’s waiting list for Eden Conquered, I hope it lives up because I will be so disappointed if it doesn’t.

6. Eragon by Christopher Paolini.

Again, another series I read as a kid. Actually I’ve only read the first book so I know I’ve missed out on a lot.

7. Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

Ugh. This series had so much potential, and I really wanted to finish it. But the first book wasn’t that great and the second book was just god-awful. So I will not be reading anymore of it.

8. Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.

This is a dilemma for me, I love love love this series. And I loved where it finished (or so I thought) at book three. And now there’s a fourth book? I really don’t know how to feel about this or if I will be reading any more of it.

9. Caraval by Stephanie Garber.

I keep seeing this series around lately and I just need to vent. I hated the first book so much, it was boring and predictable and the romance was so bad! So yeah I won’t be going within a hundred yards of the second book.

10. Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones.

Meh. This first book had some potential, but overall I didn’t like it. It was weird and the romance seemed abusive to me and the ending didn’t really make sense. Despite the world being pretty cool and the covers being stunning, I don’t think I’ll be reading the second book.

What series are on your TBR? Any of these books that you’re not planning on reading? If you wrote a Top Ten Tuesday post be sure to leave a link so I can hop over to your blog!

  1. I grew up reading all the Oz books and they are my favorites! I don’t know if they would feel dated if you read them now. But I love the stories, the characters, and the illustrations.

    • They are so great from what I remember! But I definitely want to give them a try and think about adding them to my library for my future kids. 😀

      Thanks for stopping by!
