10 Series I STILL Haven't Started


Hey, guys! Today, I'm teaming up with The Broke and the Bookish for Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly bookish list link-up. This week, I'll be sharing ten series I haven't started yet.....but totally will.
Eventually.

Probably.

(pictured: the first book in each series.)

10. Reboot by Amy Tintera



I'm usually not a fan of dystopian, but this looks like a really unique and well-written series. Plus, I've heard SO many good things about Amy Tintera's other books.

9. The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss



Ahhh, I was SO hesitant to "officially" put this on the TBR pile for a long time. As shameful as it is to admit it, I was intimidated by the length.....even though it looks really well-written. At last, however, I gave in. From the previews I've read, this series definitely gives me a Brandon Sanderson/Robert Jordan feel?

8. The Half Bad Trilogy by Sally Green



I LOVE when authors break typical writing convention, so these books look perfect for me!

7. Lorien Legacies by Pittacus Lore


Small (well, young. I'm still very small) Ellie lowkey boycotted these because she thought the name "Lorien" was stolen from J.R.R. Tolkien, one of her all-time favorite authors. Fast forward five years, and her curiosity about the series is finally overpowering her disgust at the plagiarism. (For the love of God, people, if you're going to accidentally copy a fellow author, try not to do it to a super famous one. At least look your names up before you publish them, for the Lord's sake.)

6. Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy



I'VE WANTED TO READ THIS FOR SO SO LONG. It sounds just like my thing: unique, suspenseful middle-grade with a snarky protagonist.

5. Chaos Walking by Patrick Ness


For the longest time, I didn't know what this book was about. I just heard everyone screaming "CHAOS WALKING CHAOS WALKING" and was like "that sounds like the walking dead or some crap, count me out". But now I am counting myself back in, because I read a preview and it actually looks.....really good?

(But if the dog dies, I swear I will DNF right then and there.)

4. Arc of a Scythe by Neal Shusterman



Only the first book of this series is out right now, but SO many of my fabulous bloggy friends have recommended it. And really, the premise looks like one of the most interesting I've seen in a long time. So of course I must try it!

....eventually

3. Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard by Rick Riordan



I really don't want to read Percy Jackson, mostly because I'm 98% sure it could never live up to the hype. But I adore middle-grade, so I DO want to try me some Riordan. Magnus Chase looks like a great place to start! And that cover, man.

2. Villains by V.E. Schwab


SHE'S ANNOUNCED A SEQUEL, WHICH OFFICIALLY MAKES IT A SERIES, OKAY?

Villains is another series that sounds seriously unique and looks very well-written. I really need to try some Schwab; sometimes, I feel like the only blogger who hasn't yet?? So I might start my Schwab Quest with Villains, or perhaps with

1. The Shades of Magic Trilogy by V.E. Schwab



THESE BOOKS SOUND SO AMAZING AND KELL SOUNDS SO AMAZING AND EVERYTHING SOUNDS SO AMAZING AND IT'S BEEN ON MY TBR FOR A YEAR AND I STILL HAVEN'T READ IT? What even, Ellie. Someone just throw these books at me already.

Let's chat! Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them? Are any on your TBR? What series do YOU still need to read? Comment below, and have an awesome day. <3

Namarië,
Ellie

  2. VE SCWAB IS AMAZING. Also, Magnus Chase is okay, but I prefer The Trials of Apollo better.

  9. Arc of a Scythe has such a beautiful cover. I hadn't heard of this book before today, but I want to check it out based on the cover art alone. Haha!

  11. The first two books in the half bad series are SO GOOD but after a while they got a bit boring.

  14. While the only one of these that actually made my list is A Darker Shade of Magic, I could have included almost all of these! I LOVED Scythe, so your blogger friends are so right about that one. And I really need to read The Knife of Letting Go!

  16. I need to read The Name of the Wind, too! A professor of mine actually gave me his copy right before finals week and told me to read it this summer, so it's on my priority list.

    Magnus Chase is quite the fun series, although it reads more lower YA than middle grade to me. And you definitely should give the first Percy Jackson series a try.

  18. Skulduggery is so so good! One of my absolute favourite series. Shades of Magic is wonderful as well. I haven't read Vicious yet either. The Magnus Chase books are really awesome. I still need to read Scythe and The Knife of Never Letting Go, I started that one but couldn't get into it, however I didn't get very far, so I think I'll try again.

    1. IT LOOKS SO GOOD, FAM. Thank God, I'm not the only one XD the writing style of TKONLG is pretty unconventional, from what I can gather, so maybe that's why you didn't like it?

  19. Oh wow. Let me just say that The Kingkiller Chronicles & anything by V.E. Schwabb is absolutely incredible. And Chaos Walking is my favourite YA trilogy of all time! I really want to read Arc of Scythe as well. As for I Am Number Four...personally I would not recommend it, but opinions differ. :')

    Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog - it's how I found you. I'm in love with your blog layout and I have a feeling I'm going to read more of your psots from now on!

    ALSO I HAVE BEEN WANTING TO READ SKULLDUGGERY PLEASANT IT JUST SOUNDS LOVELY AND LIGHTHEARTED AND WONDERFUL. Also, snark. A+ for snark always.

  21. Great list. I haven`t read anything from V.E. Schwab yet, but I have a feeling that I`ll fall in love with everything. From what I`ve gathered she creates morally ambiguous characters and I`m all about that life.:))

  23. I love Vicious and Darker Shade, but I haven't read the next book. I hate Chaos Walking though. Skulduggery Pleasant and Scythe sounds exactly like my type of books though, so I'm excited for those too!
