This week, Top Ten Tuesday is a freebie - we get to choose the topic. After last week being the series I haven't yet finished, I thought I'd carry on with the theme: these are the ten series that I haven't even started yet, but really need to.
10) The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
Now this one is cheating a little bit, because I actually read the first fifty pages of 'The Raven Boys' - I just couldn't get into it for some reason. We're three books in at this point, with the fourth novel coming out in the new year... I'll catch up eventually, honest.
8) The Wither trilogy by Lauren DeStefano
I love the concept of 'Wither' - a virus has taken the human life span down to the late twenties, so to keep the human populace up forced marriages occur constantly. It sounds like a very interesting premise, but I also think it's going to be a story I really need to be in the mood for to pay attention to.
Pretty - so, so, so pretty! I managed to buy these books in charity shops last year, but I've also read some bad reviews about these and I'm a bit more apprehensive now...
6) The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
The final book in the series, 'Winter', isn't released until the end of the year - I'd ideally like to get these all read before 2015 finishes.
5) The Daughter of Smoke and Bone series by Laini Taylor
Again: beautiful, beautiful books. I own the first one, so hopefully I'll kick myself up the bum and start them soon...
4) The Maze Runner trilogy by James Dashner
I have two sets of these novels, yet I still haven't read them. What is wrong with me?
I keep getting recommended these books, and now - following the release of fourth novel, 'Queen of Shadows' - I'm determined to get around to them. I loved 'A Court of Thorns and Roses', so I think I'm going to adore these books.
2) The Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo
I've currently gotten this trilogy out of the library, so I should be able to start these sooner rather than later! They look so beautiful, and I've heard such brilliant things about them - I just cannot wait.
1) The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I meant to start reading these before the first film came out... Alas, I still haven't gotten around to it. I feel like such a fraud to the book blogging world!
I hope you enjoyed my Top Ten Tuesday. Show me what you decided to do with your freebie week in the comments!
