Top Ten Tuesday - Top New Series I Want To Start

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted at The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic is Top New Series I Want To Start.  I'm going to fudge a little and include some not-so-new series.  After all, if I haven't started them, they're new to me:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/8665876-awaken Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky (first book: Awaken) - I remember seeing this cover on a lot of book blogs a while back.  I never did start the series then... but I hope to soon.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6909544-birthmarked Birthmarked by Caragh M. O'Brien (first book: Bookmarked) - I almost picked up this series a while back, but never did.  The premise still intrigues me.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11614718-delirium Delirium by Lauren Oliver (first book: Delirium) - I really enjoyed the other two books I've read by this author, so I'm curious about this series.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10194157-shadow-and-bone The Grisha by Leigh Bardugo (first book: Shadow and Bone) - I kept getting this book mixed up with Daughter of Smoke & Bone before I read the latter.  I keep hearing good things about this series (especially the third book), so I might have to check it out.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18490629-child-of-a-hidden-sea Hidden Sea Tales by A. M. Dellamonica (first book: Child of a Hidden Sea) - I saw this book reviewed on someone's blog, and I thought it looked really interesting.  And then I found it at the library when I wasn't even looking for it.  Maybe it's a sign that I should read this one!

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/19286673-loop Loop by Karen Akins (first book: Loop) - I'd never heard of this one, really, but it seems like it would fit in nicely with all the time-travel novels I've been drawn to lately.

https://www.goodreads.com/series/51288-throne-of-glass Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (first book: Throne of Glass) - It seems that everybody's been raving over these books lately (especially with the release of the third one).  I'm late to the party... but aren't I always?

https://www.goodreads.com/series/114129-time Time by Jack Finney (first book: Time and Again) - I recently acquired this one, and it looks really interesting!  It's definitely not "new"; in fact, the first book is older than I am!

https://www.goodreads.com/series/44452-uglies Uglies by Scott Westerfeld (first book: Uglies) - I've heard this is a good series.  The first book is in my TBR pile; I just haven't gotten around to reading it yet.

https://www.goodreads.com/series/43330-unwind-dystology Unwind Dystology by Neal Shusterman (first book: Unwind) - My only experience with this author is a creepy (but good) short story of his that I read recently.  This series looks kind of disturbing... but it also looks pretty good!

What series do you want to start?


  1. Birthmarked! You must read Birthmarked! I absolutely adored that series!

  2. Unwind is one of my favorite trilogies and I've been wanting to read Delirium as well.

  3. The Throne of Glass series is amazing: equal parts pain and joy. If you're a fan of high fantasy, then look no further than this series.

  4. Great picks. I LOVE Throne of Glass, such a brilliant series, it gets better with each new book. Delirium, Grisha and Loop are three books I am really excited to read myself. I hope you can get to some of these soon :) TTT.

  5. Oooo....Child of a Hidden Sea sounds pretty cool!

  6. I definitely recommend Throne of Glass...that series just gets better and better. I liked Uglies a lot too.

  7. Ooo! Yes, I had completely forgotten about Lauren Oliver's series; that's also one I want to start. Hopefully soon! :)

  8. Throne of Glass series is amazing! I read the first in the Birthmarked trilogy and need to read the next two.

  9. I recently read UNWIND and can't wait to read the rest of the series!
