Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we all get to exercise our OCD tendencies and come up with bookish lists.  If you’d like to play along, check out this post.

top ten tuesday

I’m convinced that this week’s Top Ten Tuesday is going to make us all look like imposters.  If we can think of ten series we’d like to read but haven’t yet, we’re all lazy readers, right?  Ha!  No.  I have dozens of books I own and haven’t read yet, just sitting on the shelf.  This a list of series I don’t own, but from everything I’ve heard, I should, and will try to get to in this lifetime… yeah.  Too many books, too little time!

Top Ten Series I’d Like to Start But Haven’t Yet 

1. Naomi Novik’s Dragons of Temeraire
2. Megan Whelan Turner’s Attolia
3. Beth Revis’ Across the Universe
4. Tamora Pierce’s The Song of the Lioness
5. Eoin Colfer’s Artemis Fowl

6. Neil Gaiman’s Sandman
7. Jennifer A. Nielsen’s The Ascendance Trilogy
8. Susan Cooper’s The Dark is Rising Sequence
9. Terry Pratchett’s Discworld
10. Paolo Bacigalupi’s Ship Breaker

What are some series you’d like to start reading but haven’t gotten around to yet?

I really liked Artemis Fowl after about 5 I got a wee bored but they were good fun and this reminds me to go back.

3, 4, 7 and 8 are must reads! I loved all of them and have very happy childhood memories of reading The Dark is Rising and The Song of the Lioness =)

Allison @ Good Books & Good Wine said...

Across the Universe is so good. I'm currently reading the last one, Shades of Earth, and it is so addicting!

I read the first book in Across the Universe and it was absolutely fantastic! I'm definitely looking forward to finishing the series.

Juju at Tales of said...

I'm with you on Artemis.

I reallly liked Across the Universe but haven't finished the series.

I've only read the first two books of Artemis Fowl, but it is AWESOME! He's such an interesting character. Oh, and I totally forgot about the Attolia series. I definitely want to read that. AND something by Tamora Pierce. Seriously, it's ridiculous the amount of books I want to read :)

Liviania said...

I've read almost all of these. (But, er, I'm guilty of not reading The Dark is Rising too. I know it's a classic! Someday.)

Kristen said...

I love Artemis Fowl and suggest it as an audio! Alanna is one of my favorite characters of all times. And I loved the False Prince and The Thief. So many good series to start! :)

Milo@BlogProfits said...

those books must be really good I must have them but the only book that I have was the Sandman and I was enjoying it

Charlotte said...

I'm working my way through Discworld myself, and enjoying it lots!

I do hope you like Megan Whalen Turner!
