Top Ten Tuesday │ Series on my TBR


Hello, happy readers! It's (nearly) eight days into September. Can we believe this!? Time is racing past at an alarming rate, and already we are ushering in another week and another Top Ten Tuesday topic. Oh my. This week's is a great one considering we all are in a perpetual state of not reading that TBR (which is pretty towering) and that crosses over into NOT finishing series. I'm breaking this into a couple of parts because there are series I haven't yet finished and really want to, and series I'm primed to adore considering all of the hype surrounding them or the recommendations. Plus, I'm including the latter category because I have one or more of the books on my shelves and why not?
 
Broke and Bookish Official September 8th Topic:
 
Ten Finished Series I Have YET to Finish
(topic first done in 2012)
 

 
1.) The Selection Series (HarperTeen) by Kiera Cass

I suppose technically this series does not fit into today's topic because there is one book to go. But, I "had" to add it. I've read the first novella collection to be released as well as the first two books. Now I just need to read The One and The Heir. Preferably before the fifth (and final) novel releases next spring.

Amazon


2.) Deadly Reunions (Revell) by Lynette Eason

This one is sort of "odd" to put on this list, only because I've read the final two novels in this series and skipped book one. I believe it was because I signed up for the blog tour of book two and hadn't had a chance to read the first book. Someday I'd like to though as I enjoy the genre (romantic suspense).

Amazon


3.) If I Stay Duology (Dutton) by Gayle Forman

Again, this one might be "disqualified" since it's a duo (three a series makes, right!?), but whatever. I'm running with it. Read book one and really enjoyed it, so getting book two read in my near future might be nice.

Amazon


4.) Gifting Series (Indie) by K.E. Ganshert

Katie deserves a round of applause for this queiter, imaginative dystopian novel. And she indie published too! Bravo, Katie. Anxious to see what else comes in the last two novels which she released mere months apart (perks of Indie publishing, I'd say).

Amazon


5.) Anna and the French Kiss Series (Dutton) by Stephanie Perkins

Finally read this novel this summer. In. Love. Etienne? I kinda think he's amazing. Not sure how frequently these novels are considered a series (are they more companion novels?), but GR lists them as such, so I'm using that. Lola and Isla... I'm coming to visit your worlds.

Amazon

Other books that would fit this category are, the Cadence of Grace Series (WaterBrook) by Joanne Bischof; Lonestar Series (Thomas Nelson) by Colleen Coble; Katie Parker Production Series (Sweet Pea) by Jenny B. Jones; Anomaly Series (Thomas Nelson) by Krista McGee.




6.) River of Time Series (David C. Cook) by Lisa T. Bergren

Why I've not read this series simply comes down to lack of better time (reading) management. My blogging friends consistently gush over it, so I plan to remedy my oversight soon - perhaps this winter even.

Amazon


7.) Finishing School Series (Little Brown) by Gail Carringer

These look like entertainment of the highest class. I own book one and despite being tempted by subsequent novels in the series since (B&N why must you tempt me so!?), I've held back from picking up more. Must read book one first.

Amazon


8.) Summer Series (Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers) by Jenny Han

Jenny Han is constantly praised and this series looks like nothing but the sweetest of contemporary series. Those are my kryptonite.

Amazon


9.) Throne of Glass Series (Bloomsbury) by Sarah J. Maas

I'll confess, I own nearly this entire series (the novella collection, books 1-2) without having read them. I even have my preorders of (the paperback of) book 3 and Queen of Shadows on their way. Really, aside from the chance there is that I'll hate this series (highly unlikely considering its universal love), it's not a bad thing this is so. This way, I'll be binge-reading.

Amazon


10.) Geek Girl Series (HarperTeen) by Holly Smale

We're all "geek girls," right? I mean sure there's the awkward geek (*raises hand*) and the chic geek, but come on! We've all got a part of us that is a... well, geek girl. This series not only sounds adorable, but it seems universally relatable. Have any of you read it?

  1. I hope you enjoy the Throne of Glass series. It's certainly fun to have four of them to binge read! :-) My TTT!

    1. Binge reading seems a must for this series! I'm certain lots of cliffhangers will be in abundance. Thanks for visiting, Chrissi. :)

  2. I've also always meant to read the River of Time series! I bought the first book several years ago because of so many people in the blogging community loving it, but I've never read it.

    Some series that I've already started and want to finish are: the Penderwicks, Flavia de Luce, All the Wrong Questions, the Fairyland books, Mary Poppins, and the Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place. (Yes, most of those are children's books, ha.) Oh, and the Lunar Chronicles, of course. But like the Lunar Chronicles, most of those series aren't actually completed yet.

    Looking at my shelves, there are also some series that I own at least one book from that I haven't started yet...like the River of Time series, the Tales of Goldstone Wood by Anne Elisabeth Stengl, Sarah Sundin's Wings of the Nightingale trilogy, and Janice Thompson's Backstage Pass books. And though I don't own any of them yet, I also want to finally get around to reading Jenny B. Jones' Katie Parker books.

    1. Considering its universal love, I'm prepared to adore the River of Time books, Kristin. Plus, it's by Lisa Bergren, so there is that! :)

      Aside from Mary Poppins, I don't believe I'm familiar with any of the series you wish to finish. Those titles are sure cute and intriguing though! Oh, and of course I have heard of the Lunar books. I need to start those yet, but then, I'll talked about that quite enough hence I excluded them. ;)

      Yay for Sarah Sundin books! I think I need to read some of her Nightingale books as well, and Janice's are always cute. Hope you enjoy Jenny's Katie Parker books. Must finish that quartet - I've only read book one. :)

  3. I'm so glad that I'm not the only one who hasn't read the River of Time series!

    1. You are not, Dawn. Perhaps we'll both get to it soon... :)

  4. I would have put down If I Stay, but I decided at the last minute that it didn't count as a series. LOL. That said, I definitely need to get to Where She Went and finish the duo soon!

    1. I didn't figure it "technically" fit either, Megan, but I went with it regardless. ;) Hopefully we'll both enjoy Where She Went. Thanks so much for visiting.

    1. Hi, Erika. Thanks so much for visiting and the kind words. Always fun to put these memes together. :)

  6. I've read, and enjoyed, the first book in the River of Time series. I need to read the Throne of the Glass series myself. I didn't count The Selection series, because I couldn't decide if The Heir was a new series or part of it, and I do still need to read it, even though I own it.

    1. Yay! Another recommendation for Lisa's River of Time books. Thanks, Lisa. They sound amazing, and I have every expectation of them being so, I just haven't had time to read them. The Throne of Glass books sound really good too. :)

      I believe The Heir is considered part of the 'The Selection' series. Or that's my understanding. :)

      Off to visit your TTT - and thank you very much for visiting today. :)

  7. Ooo. Interesting, Rissi.

    I've heard plenty of good things about Anna and the French Kiss.

    Heard about/seen most of the other ones, too. Even tried reading one of them - wasn't my cup of tea unfortunately. It's nice when a reader agrees with the bookish hype, so I hope you enjoy these books. Happy reading! (And pretty new blog header!)

    1. Ganise, hi! Always good to see you around, friend. I know you're keeping busy, but we miss seeing you around more. :)

      "Anna" is darling albeit definitely a secular novel. :)

      Nothing wrong with that. Sometimes a book just doesn't work for another reader where it held another's interest. Thank you for the kind words - always fun to switch out some colors and put up a kinda new header (I cheated and used the same design basically).

  8. Deadly Reunion series is one of my favorite! Likewise, the Lonestar series. I really need to get around to The Gifting and Anna & The French Kiss. My TTT

    1. I really liked the latter two "Deadly Reunion" books. Here's hoping the first is equally as good. Really loved what I read of the Lonestar books (the first three, I think...?), so reading that last one is a must. Oh, and happy reading, Carrie; hope you enjoy The Gifting and "Anna." :)

      Thanks - as always, for visiting.

  9. I've got Carriger on my list too for the Parasol Protectorate - I've read the first Finishing School book and liked it too! :)

    Check out my TTT.

    1. Hooray! I hear good things about Gail's books, and they look epic (I mean, those covers!). Here's hoping we both enjoy the books we wish to read by this author.

      Thank you so much for visiting, Lauren. Off to visit your TTT meme! :)

  10. I didn't love Lola as much as I loved Anna, but I loved Cricket even more than St. Clair. Isla was cute, but the first 2 were my faves. I would also like to read Geek Girl one of these days :) Thanks for stopping by my list :)

    1. Well, this sounds promising, Michelle! Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on Stephanie's books. I'm glad to know Cricket is more amazing than St. Clair. :D Geek Girl looks like darn cute reading, which is sometimes what I prefer.

      My pleasure. Thank you for returning the favor. :)

  11. The Finishing School series is one that I have thought about reading, so I look forward to seeing what you think of them.;)
    Geek Girl looks adorable! I will have to add it to my list as well...;)

    1. Thanks, Amanda. Hopefully in the not too distant future I will read book one! (I think it's relatively short, which is promising for this reader.) And I agree. Geek Girl sounds adorable (and looks it too!). Cannot wait to dive into that one. :)

      Delete
  12. I LOVE your graphics, as usual :) Seriously, it's a gift! Anyway. At this point, it almost makes sense to binge Throne of Glass, BUT the spoiler fear is real. I liked the second "If I Stay" book even better than the first, so hopefully you will too! And I am right there with you on Anna, The Selection, and the Summer series. Now you have me considering the Finishing School books as well! Hope you get to these soon :)

    1. Thanks, Shannon. I appreciate the kind words. I probably spend too much time putting these together, but it's what I love doing, so I allow myself the fun task. :) Love your blog! It's so bright and welcoming.

      I don't think I've read many spoilers on the Throne of Glass series to be honest. I just got Queen of Shadows in the mail today and wow! That book intimidates. Oh, that sounds great. Liking book two of a series better is always fun.

      Thanks - and you too! I hope you can get to the books you wish to read soon. Happy reading. :)

  13. All of your TBR series have been on my radar except Geek Girl (which sounds cute --the covers look familiar, maybe I've seen it at the library?)

    River of Time and Throne of Glass both seem to be enjoyed by a lot of book bloggers ... I hope they continue to live up to the hype. =)

    1. Fun! Always cool to discover fellow readers who share a similar TBR. I hope you enjoy the books and agree, "River" and "Glass" are super hyped. But I'm prepared to fully embrace and enjoy both series. :)

      Geek Girl looks darling and that's most often my idea of a really good story. :)
