Top Ten Tuesday | Series I’ve Been Meaning to Start but Haven’t

Top Ten Tuesday is brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish, and this week I’ll be sharing the series that I’ve been meaning to start but haven’t had a chance to yet. Some of these series have only recently gotten onto my list, but with my recent obsession with bookTube, it can’t be helped!

   10 Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

This one is absolutely a result of my bookTube watching. I have heard such good things about this trilogy, including a villain you can’t help but [almost] root for. I already have this one scheduled for review!

 9 True North by Sarina Bowen

I want to read this, but I get more anxious about it as time passes. This author used to be a constant hit for me, but I’ve read a few misses from her lately. I feel like maybe I need a break before I dive into something else of hers.

 8 Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

This one is partially because I am a cover whore. But let’s be honest – ‘treacherous betrayals, shocking murders, secret alliances, and even unforeseen love’ (taken straight from the blurb,) is right up my alley.


In Focus by Megan Erickson

This one has been on my to be read list for a long time. I’d never read Megan Erickson before, but now that I’ve read most of the Cyberlove series and have gotten a taste of her writing, I am gluttonous for it. This one has definitely been bumped up.


Roads by Garrett Leigh

I’ve loved everything from this author, and there’s no doubt in my mind this series is going to no exception. It seems like it’s going to be high on the angst, and that is something I crave in my books!


A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

I’ve seen so many thoughts on this series. It seems that people either love it or hate it, and I must find out what all the fuss is about. Consensus, though, is that book two is amazing! I’m excited to read this one.


The Innkeeper Chronicles by Ilona Andrews

Granted I’ve only read two series from Ilona Andrews, but it’s enough to have turned me into a fangirl for them. I’ll knock out their entire back list eventually, but after I read the last Hidden Legacy book, this is where I’ll continue with them.


Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

I really love the concept of this story with three sisters fighting to the death for the crown. I also love that each sister wields a different type of magic. This series sounds pretty intense!


Portland Heat by Annabeth Albert

So, an M/M series that revolves around coffees and pastries? Is there really anything that could go wrong with that? I don’t think so.


The Witchlands by Susan Dennard

Ok, so I read that this book features super strong female friendships and multiple couples to ship. Two of my favorite things! I need to dive into this one ASAP!

If there are some series you think I might like (especially YA Fantasy, which I’ve not read a lot of,) I’d love to hear about them!

Add yours

  1. I enjoyed Trust the Focus and Innkeeper Chronicles. I’m working on Ilona Andrews’ The Edge series after I saw some of the grown up side characters were kids in the Edge series. I’ve got Shadow and Bone and the Sarah J Maas books on my someday list, too.


    1. I will be reading Shadow and Bone right off. But I’m not sure when I’ll be able to fit in Trust the Focus and Innkeeper Chronicles. Hopefully soon!

      Oooh…I hope you’re enjoying the Edge series! I’ll get to that one. Someday. LOL


  2. Oh man, I’ve been seeing Shadow of Bone everywhere today – is this another one I need to add to my TBR?? Three Dark Crowns was good – not amazing, but good – but it set itself up so awesomely for the sequel!


    1. Yes, you definitely need to read Shadow and Bone! Hopefully we’ll both love it and can gush about it. LOL

      I have Three Dark Crowns on hold at my library, so I’ll be excited to start it soon! 🙂


  3. The Innkeeper Chronicles is a great series. I also enjoyed Portland Heat series. I need to read Sarah J Maas, Truthwitch, and Shadow and Bone myself.


  4. I’m debating the Shadow and Bone books since I have Six of crows to read but people say it’s good to read the Grisha beforehand? And falling Kingdoms has always kinda looked good to me too.

    Three dark crowns was pretty awesome.

    Grave Mercy was a good YA fantasy if you’ve never read that one, although I haven’t read any of the sequels.


    1. Thank you! I have heard good things about Grave Mercy, so I will be sure to check that out, too.

      Yes, I have heard they’re loosely connected, so while it probably isn’t necessary, I am fanatical about reading in order. They take place in the same world.

      I have Three Dark Crowns on hold at my library. It should come in soon! I’m excited to read that one. I love the premise.


  5. Great list, Angie Elle! #s 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 9 and 10 would have made mine! 😉 *sigh* I even own the first book in most of these…


    1. I have heard so many people say that about ACoMaF! It’s really what has made me want to read the series.

      Yes, I’ve heard a lot of good things about Falling Kingdoms, so I’m excited for that one. I hope it sparks your interest.

  6. Ugh! I need to start the Andrews series, too! I can’t believe I’ve not read them yet. Bowen’s cover is amazing!


  7. oh you listed some series I want to start as well. I definitely want to pick up Trust in Focus, since I hear she does a great job with the M/M romance here, and I am always looking for more of those to pick up since I have only read a few. I do want to pick up Sarina Bowen though, since she has been on my wishlist like…forever hehe


    1. Yes, I am excited to pick up the Megan Erickson series!

      I am so nervous about the Sarina Bowen. I love her older stuff, but her newer stuff has been hit or miss for me. I need to bite the bullet and just dive in, though. I’ll probably love it!
