Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s prompt was to list Books You’d Mash Together, but I’m never any good at that sort of thing—I tend to view each book/series in its own little compartment in my head—so I decided instead to list ten series I’d like to continue or finish soon!
Last year, I did a similar T10T: Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning to Start! I’ll give a quick update on those below, before launching into this week’s list.
Series I’ve Been Meaning to Start: UPDATE!
1. Throne of Glass — Sarah J. Maas
IN PROGRESS (novellas + 2/6 installments read, #3 in progress)
2. Mara Dyer — Michelle Hodkin
IN PROGRESS (1/3 installments read)
3. The Remnant Chronicles — Mary E. Pearson
4. The Lord of the Rings — J.R.R. Tolkien
5. Loom Saga — Elise Kova
6. Shatter Me — Tahereh Mafi
7. The Chronicles of Alice — Christina Henry
8. Six of Crows — Leigh Bardugo
COMPLETE — ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ average
9. Clash of Kingdoms — Erin Summerill
10. The Mortal Instruments — Cassandra Clare
IN PROGRESS (4/6 installments read)
1. Flame in the Mist — Renee Ahdieh
1 read, 1 unread
I didn’t love the first book, but I liked the ending enough to need to know what happens next, especially since it’s only a duology.
2. DC Icons — multiple authors
1 read, 2 unread, 1 unreleased
I liked Wonder Woman: Warbringer okay, and would like to read Batman before Catwoman, which I’ve pre-ordered (it released today). That said, I have no real interest in reading the 4th book (Superman) when it comes out.
3. The Mortal Instruments — Cassandra Clare
4 read, 2 unread
I’m working through the Shadowhunters books in publication order right now, and will be finishing this one soon, though I’ll be sad to see it go!
4. The Infernal Devices — Cassandra Clare
1 read, 1 in progress, 1 unread
Same as TMI, I’ll be finished soon and am sad to see it end but also excited to move on to The Dark Artifices.
5. The Nevernight Chronicle — Jay Kristoff
1 read, 1 unread, 1 unreleased
The first book is one of my all-time faves, but I’ve been putting off Godsgrave because I’m scared of the cliffhanger ending everyone has warned me about, especially with Darkdawn having been moved back to fall 2019.
6. Throne of Glass — Sarah J. Maas
novellas + 2 read, 1 in progress, 3 unread, 1 unreleased
I am loving this series and am going to be seriously sad to finish it, but I also really want to finish it in time to read the finale as soon as it comes out so that nobody gets the chance to spoil me for the ending!
7. The Lunar Chronicles — Marissa Meyer
3 read, 2 + novellas unread
I liked Cinder and Scarlet, and loved Cress, so I have no idea why it’s been a year now since I’ve continued this series! My plan is to read Fairest next, then finally Winter (with the short stories in between as shown on Marissa Meyer’s website).
8. Percy Jackson and the Olympians — Rick Riordan
3 read, 1 in progress, 1 unread
Technically, the 1 in progress (book 4) was one I picked up a few months ago, read the first 100pg of, and forgot about so I set it aside long enough that I’ll probably just restart it soon, but whatever. I want to finish this series so I can move on to the next series!
9. The Bone Season — Samantha Shannon
1 read, 2 unread, 4 unreleased
I loved book 1 so much that I immediately bought books 2 and 3, but keep putting off reading them because I know book 4 has been pushed back a couple of times and I don’t want to be stuck waiting forever between installments. Last I heard, Samantha is hopefully releasing book 4 some time in 2020—my understanding is that her new standalone, Priory, was basically just rattling around in her brain and refused to let her work on TBS, which I can fully respect and don’t blame her for.
(I’ll be reading Priory when it comes out, too!)
10. Abhorsen — Garth Nix
1 read, 4 unread
I read Sabriel as a kid and loved it but never continued it, so I reread Sabriel at the start of this year and enjoyed it a lot, but for some reason keep forgetting to move on with the series.
What are some series that you want to continue or finish soon?
