Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start But Haven’t
Two posts in one day? If you like the idea of this, don’t get used to it, and if you’re already sick of hearing from me, don’t worry, I can’t possibly keep up this speed.
Set out by The Broke & the Bookish, here is my Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning to Start but Haven’t.
I’ve heard people say the movie is better than the book, which concerns me a little since I thought the movie was ‘just okay’. Regardless, I still have some interest in checking out this series.
I’ve been told that Discworld isn’t really a series as much as a series of standalone stories that take place in the same world with recurring characters. Regardless, this has been on my list for some time.
This is one of those situations where I already own the book and, somehow, still haven’t started it. I blame Supernatural for this purchase. The level of angel battles that I’ve always wanted to see on that show (but never have) might finally take place in the form of this book.
The Great Library
Anyone who loves books can’t possibly avoid such a book-centric novel. The premise reminds me of Fahrenheit 451 with an even better twist.
The Illuminae Files
2 mega corporations battling over the world. Enough said.
Shades of Magic
This one didn’t fall onto my radar until I started following a lot of book bloggers. Soon after, this popped up everywhere. I would say it’s high on my list, but it feels like EVERYTHING is high on my list!
I really loved this movie. It was necessarily a ‘great’ movie, but I found it so entertaining and I couldn’t stop thinking about the world it had created and the characters it featured. It’s been on my list ever since.
Remember what I sound about the Pittacus Lore series? Same goes for this one.
The Nevernight Chronicle
A school for assassins? Where do I sign up? I’m picturing Hogwarts but Hermione is a stone-cold killer with a throwing knife and Ron can nail a target from 500 yards in high wind.
I’ve been a Sanderson fan for a long time, even though I haven’t read any of his books. Confused? I know. I’ve listened to his podcast (Writing Excuses) for something like 10 years. Throughout that time I’ve always intended to read his books and it just hasn’t happened yet. That’s a long time, but I’m not giving up.
