Back in October there was a Six For Sunday post about our favourite trilogies and series and it got me thinking about popular series that I haven’t read yet. So I’m taking advantage of this week’s TTT freebie to share!
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme currently hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl
Freebie – Ten Popular Series I Haven’t Read Yet
The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury
So many of my favourite bloggers absolutely rave about this trilogy from Melinda. Well I’ll be honest they rave about anything Mel writes! I have the first book in this trilogy sitting on my shelf but I’ve not got around to reading it yet…
Geek Girl by Holly Smale
There are six books in the Geek Girl series, and it’s a series that Amy from Golden Books Girl often tells me I should read. One day I’ll hopefully get around to them sometime in 2019 – although I haven’t bought any of them yet!
Rebel Of The Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
This is another trilogy I’ve seen a lot across various YA blogs, it sounds interesting so maybe I’ll get to it some year…
The Spinster Club by Holly Bourne
I have to confess to not being overly keen on Holly’s first adult book How Do You Like Me Now? but lots of people whose opinions I trust hugely assure me I’ll like her YA stuff much more and that I should give The Spinster Club a try
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
I read a really loved Heartless by Marissa Meyer and ever since I’ve been meaning to pick up The Lunar Chronicles. Nearly two years on I’ve still not quite gotten to it yet…
A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin
I’ve not read any of this series and the only thing I took from the first episode of Game of Thrones was I’d quite like a pet Dire Wolf, I never watched another episode. So I have to admit this is one popular series I have no real desire to pick up
Murder Most Unladylike Mysteries by Robin Stevens
I love a good crime novel and a couple of people have recommended Robin’s books as a slightly lighter side of one of my favourite genres!
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
This was such a popular trilogy but I must confess I’ve never read any of the books or seen the films… I’m a bad bookworm!
Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare
Several of the people I follow absolutely rave about this franchise by Cassandra Clare, which (I think) currently contains three series of novels. It definitely interests me but y’know that slightly overwhelming feeling when you look at a series already 12 books in with another six supposedly planned and you just think ummm maybe not… Well that’s me here
Lord of the Rings – J.R.R. Tolkien
My dad read me The Hobbit as a bedtime story when I was little, I must admit I was more excited to spend time with my dad than listen to the story. My teacher tried to read us the story during my final year of primary school before switching to this new little series called Harry Potter when he realised we weren’t that interested. I’ve never been that interested in picking up this trilogy, I’ve only ever seen a bit of one of the films, I have to admit I just find it all a little dull, so I guess that’s another series I won’t be rushing to pick up!.
So there are ten popular series I haven’t read yet. Are there popular series you haven’t read yet? Let me know in the comments!
