Top Ten Tuesday: Series I have YET to START

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Last week I shared with you series I have started, this week I'm going to share with you series that I'm interested in but haven't started yet.  All of these series look really good, and most of them I've heard great things.  I think I just have a fear of commitment, just kidding.  But really.

1. The Uglies Series by Scott Westerfeld
2. Leviathan Trilogy by Scott Westerfeld
3. Boneshakers by Cherie Priest

4. Gilda Joyce Series by Jennifer Allison
5. The 5th Wave Trilogy by Rick Yancy
6. Taken by Erin Bowan

7. The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart
8. Cormoran Strike Series (A Cuckoo's Calling) by Robert Galbraith

9. Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness
10. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

And those are just some of the series that are on my bookshelf.
It seems to me that I'm more apt to pick up a series that has just begun rather than look at all the unread books of a series that is either already complete or partially complete.  I don't know.  I get really funky about series sometimes.

Bonus Jonas:
11.  Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas - I'm all set to start reading this series because it looks so good and I have now confirmed that I like her writing style.  I just - there are so many books out already.  How will I ever catch up?

This has me thinking: If I hadn't found Harry Potter right out of the gate, would I have ever read it?

So many commitment issues in this post.


  1. Don't worry, you're not the only one with commitment issues! Outlander, The Knife of Never Letting Go, The Cuckoo's Calling and The 5th Wave are all on my TBR, too. I tried reading Uglies but unfortunately I didn't like it; I wasn't a big fan of Scott Westerfeld's writing. I hope you manage to get to some of these soon!

  2. I read "The Uglies" back in the day when it was super popular and it was one of the only books my middle school library had in the YA section. it was a good series! the 5th wave is one that I haven't had the chance to pick up yet, and with the release of the movie right around the corner I feel like I need to start it soon! great post today!

  3. We share a LOT of these: Outlander, The Cuckoo's Calling, The 5th Wave, Leviathan and The Knife of Never Letting Go! I highly, HIGHLY recommend Throne of Glass though ;) Oh and don't worry about catching up. Once you get hooked, you will devour these like a starving person, sooo you'll be caught up in no time LOL

  4. Nice theme this week!!

    I chose to focus on banned books as Banned Books Week is coming up later this month!! Here's a link to my TTT post for the week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/09/top-ten-tuesday-my-list-of-favorite.html

  5. I really tried to start the Outlander series but I just couldn't get into it (I think I'm the only one?) lol My TTT

  6. Good theme! I would recommend starting with Chaos Walking and then Leviathan. :)

    Check out my TTT.

  7. Chaos Walking is on my TBR as well! Definitely read Throne of Glass as soon as possible, the first book is not the best, but the later books are so much better, so remember that if you aren't very into book one! The first book in Uglies is good, but I found the later books kind of went downhill.
