posted by soe 2:10 am

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday at The Broke and the Bookish asks us about the Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning to Start but Haven’t:

  1. Earthly Delights by Kerry Greenwood (You know her for her Miss Fisher books, but she also has this series about baker Corinna Chapman, which my dad highly recommends.)
  2. The Magicians by Lev Grossman (I started the first one once, but put it down. I own the third book and really should just start the series once more.)
  3. Make Lemonade by Virginia Euwer Wolff (A YA verse series my dad recommended to me seven years ago.)
  4. Kopp Sisters by Amy Stewart (Another book I picked up and then had to return to the library before finishing. The third book in the series is due out this September.)
  5. Goldie Vance by Hope Larson and Brittney Williams (This graphic novel series just released Vol. 2 last month.)
  6. Kick Keswick by Marne Davis Kellogg (I think I have to go join the Alexandria library to get a copy of this one.)
  7. The Great Shelby Holmes by Elizabeth Eulberg (I’ve read adult retellings and YA retellings; now it’s time for one for the middle grades.)
  8. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor (My Twitter feed has been very excited about this new series.)
  9. Inspector Morse by Colin Dexter (Because I’ve loved the Inspector Lewis series.)
  10. The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi (I actually have the first book of this series in hand right now!)

How about you? What series do you enjoy? Which do you mean to pick up?

Oh, this is a great question!! Okay… of course Harry Potter gets a nod, as does the Little House books – books I could read over and over and over!

Adult me loves the Department Q series and I cannot get them fast enough! I also enjoy Harry Hole!

I adore the Kick Keswick series! The only down side is that I’ve read them all at this point.

I had the Star Touched Queen books on my list this week too.

@Bridget: Your reviews are what turned me onto the books. Thank you!

@Kat: Interesting! I tend not to like thrillers (possessing a rather powerful imagination that doesn’t turn off after the covers of a book are closed), instead preferring less stressful crime fiction, but I know Jo Nesbø’s works are really popular.
