Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start But Haven’t. Starting a series can definitely be a struggle, but sometimes it’s continuing the series that is the problem! So I created a list of series that I need to start or finish.
Series I’ve Been Meaning to Start
YES, I KNOW.
I bought the ebook of this a good while ago and really need to read it.
YES, I KNOW. And I’ve had this ebook for a while as well.
I want to read all of C.S. Lewis’s works, though admittedly I have not made a great effort towards this. I hardly ever see this trilogy anywhere, but I definitely want to read it.
I’m sensing a pattern with these ebook acquisitions…
Series I’ve Been Meaning to Continue
For this, I made the criteria be that the next book in the series that I haven’t read yet needs to have been our for more than a year.
I enjoyed the first book, even though I wasn’t expecting the paranormal aspect, and really have wanted to read on.
I’ve read the first two Gallagher Girls books but haven’t made it to #3 yet.
I am less and less certain if I really want to continue & finish this series, but part of me kind of does.
When I read the first book, I thought it would feel like a standalone, but it does leave off in a sort of strange spot, clearly setting up for the second book. Since I think of the movie version more though, I haven’t been real motivated to pick up The Restaurant at the End of the Universe though I want to.
I enjoyed the first book a lot, and then I pretty promptly moved on with my life. So will I read on? We’ll see.
I read the first book of this series, The Beekeeper’s Apprentice, in college, and didn’t realize it was the beginning of a series. But then my then-boyfriend now husband continued to collect and read the books, and I have yet to continue despite enjoying the first book and knowing how he’s enjoyed the others.
Which series have you been meaning to start or finish?
