Top 10 Tuesday: Series I’ve Been Meaning to Start

This is a weekly tag hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and this week’s challenge is Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning to Start But Haven’t!


This one is pretty self-explanatory, and as a reader with a TBR pile that has been slowly burying me alive for most of my teen and adult life, this one should be a breeze. I didn’t want today’s post to just be a basic numbered list, because I feel like you guys deserve more information than that. 😉 So, I’m going to also give you a quick rundown of when the series began, how many books are currently in it, and if it has been completed!

I know, some of you are probably reeling over the fact that I haven’t already started some of these series (like TMI, LOTR, or TOG)! The older series have mostly all been on my TBR for years, but I somehow just haven’t gotten around to them. TMI almost got left off of this list because I actually am not 100% sold on the idea of Cassandra Clare’s books, but so many of my bookish friends love her writing that I feel like I at least have to give it a try!

What’s a series you’ve been meaning to start? Do you see any series on my list that you think I should put a rush on?

  1. So many great choices!! Several of these could’ve been included on my own list, like Shatter Me, LOTR, and TMI. I thought about including Throne of Glass, but I’m honestly not sure if I want to read it. I’ve heard so many mixed things about it. I have the first book so I’ll probably read it eventually, but we’ll see. 😛 If you end up not liking TMI that much, I’d recommend The Infernal Devices. I read that trilogy and loved it even though I haven’t read TMI yet and I’ve heard a lot of people who’ve read both prefer TID.

  2. Ohh I still need to read The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson and The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare! I have a few books from each series that have been sitting on my Kindle for forever. There’s just not enough hours to read in a week lol!

    1. There really aren’t. Sometimes I wish I had a time freeze ray JUST for the purpose of getting more reading done. I would just periodically freeze time like once a day, while my kid naps and everyone else is busy, and I’d just veg out on the couch and power through some chapters. lmao
