I recently discovered The Broke and The Bookish, which is a blog that hosts the popular Top Ten Tuesday blog meme. Their prompts look really fun, and since I just finished my writing challenge, I obviously needed something to do.
Here are the top ten series I have yet to finish:
1. The Ender Quintet by Orson Scott Card. I love Ender’s Game, but it is the only book from the series I have read so far. I own a copy of the second book, Speaker for the Dead, but just haven’t gotten around to actually reading it.
2. The Red Rising Trilogy by Pierce Brown. This is easily my favorite series on this list. I can’t stop talking about how much I love these books. The final installment comes out in February, and I will be blocking out that entire day for a long reading session. So excited!
3. Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. I actually read Jurassic Park a couple of months ago and loved it! I am planning on reading the second book in the two-book series, The Lost World very soon.
4. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. Does this series have an official name? I have no idea. But I read the first book a few weeks ago and really liked it, so I’m planning on eventually reading the other two.
5. The Maze Runner trilogy by James Dashner. I own the entire series, but I have only read the first book. I liked it. Didn’t love it. And I just wasn’t intrigued enough to continue on. I will probably end up reading the second and third books at some point, they’re just not calling to me at the moment.
6. The Magicians trilogy by Lev Grossman. I really liked the first book, but the second one frustrated me and I stopped reading it about a quarter of the way through. It’s on my reading list for this year, though, so I will be picking it back up in the next couple of months.
7. The Tudor Court Series by Philippa Gregory. I read three out of the seven books in this series back in high school, and was a little bit obsessed with them. I’m not sure why I stopped reading them, but one day I’ll finish the series. One day. (It’s been a long time since I read a Philippa Gregory book now that I think about it.)
8. The Pink Series by Lauren Willig. I think I’ve read two or three books in this series (which starts with The Secret History of the Pink Carnation). I flew through the first few books about eight years ago, and was just really bad at keeping up with it – there are now twelve books in the series. I do remember really enjoying them, so maybe I’ll get back to them soon.
9. The Diviners by Libba Bray. I just finished the second installment in the series, Lair of Dreams and loved it! Both books are amazing and, according to Libba Bray’s website, there will be two more. I will be reading them the second they are published.
10. Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. I actually just read the first two books in the series this summer. I really liked them, and plan on finishing the series next year (I have way to many books to read in 2015).
