Top Ten Tuesday is THE bookish meme, hosted by the wonderful ladies at The Broke and the Bookish, the book blog that hooked me on all other book blogs! I’m a sucker for bookish memes, so here we go…
Today’s topic is Top Ten New Series I Want To Start! ‘New” being within the last year or two, and this was actually a little harder than I though! A lot of the series I have on my TBR are older than that, from when I wasn’t reading much a few years ago. Anyhoo, in no particular order here’s my list 🙂
Shadow and Bone (#1)
Siege and Storm (#2)
Ruin and Rising (#3)
I had never heard of this series until earlier this year, when the blogosphere went CRAZY for Ruin and Rising. I was intrigued but my old library didn’t have it, which put a bit of a dampener on my plans to read it. I’m pleased to find out that my new one does!
I’m hooked on Gayle Forman’s writing after reading If I Stay/Where She Went, so it’s only logical that I’ll branch out into her next series! Ideally I’d like to read these before her next novel is released in early 2015 (I Was Here).
I’ve heard some pretty amazing things about this series and I’ve previously borrowed the first book from the library, but I had to return it before I had the chance to read it. Luckily this is another one that my new library has on the shelves, so I’ll be sure to check it out soon.
So apparently this series brings all the feels, so I reckon I’d have to be in a particular kind of mood to read it. That being said, I’d love to give it a shot!
I enjoyed Hoover’s Losing It series, and I’ve heard great things about this one. This one might be a little difficult to track down though, I haven’t seen it in any shops and my library doesn’t have any of her books… I may have to shell out some cashola for this one.
Technically this one doesn’t really meet the guidelines of being one to two years old, but most of the books were published within that period so I’m gonna allow it 🙂 This is another series that came to my attention via the blogosphere, with the last book being released this year.
This is set in one of my niche time periods, Nazi Germany. I studied this period A LOT while at Uni, as part of my History major for my Arts Degree. I love to read books based in that period, inserting themselves into history, so I’m sure I’ll enjoy this one.
I have the first book in this series sitting on my shelf at the moment, so I’m sure I’ll get there sooner rather than later 🙂
Another historical fiction series set in my favourite time period (although I’m quite sure ‘favourite’ is really the right word to use…). I started reading Code Name Verity last year but I wasn’t in the right frame of mind. It’s time to rectify this methinks!
Another book I have sitting on my shelf that I’ve yet to read… A bad habit of mine! I’m keen to read this one, I’m not quite sure why I’ve been procrastinating by it’s time to stop.
There you have it, that’s my list! How about you, what did you have on your list? Have you got any others that you could recommend to me?
