Top Ten Tuesday: Series I'd Like to Start

Top Ten Tuesday
Top 10 series I'd like to start but haven't yet
(Feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

As a general rule, I try my darndest not to read series.  I'm horrible at it.  I read one, maybe two, and then completely forget to continue.  It's even worse if I have to wait for the next in the series.  I don't have time to re-read, but I'm horrible at remembering details, so picking up book two or three can be terribly confusing and frustrating.  I think I read too fast.  But series have their perks.  Well-written series allow you to stay in the world just a little longer.  They let you really get to know the characters and invest in their trials.  Perhaps I should just wait until all the books in the series are out and commit completely.  Go all in.

1) Delirium trilogy by Lauren Oliver
2) Ender Wiggin series by Orson Scott Card
3) Maze Runner series by James Dashner
4) Gone novels by Michael Grant
5) Septimus Heap series by Angie Sage
6) Heist Society novels by Ally Carter
7) Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness
8) Legend series by Marie Lu
9) The Monstrumologist by Richard Yancey
10) Anne of Green Gables series by L.M. Montgomery

  1. Anne of Green Gables is a must, and how convenient that it's fully available already. I recently started the Delirium series myself, and it's pretty well written and a quick read. I like to pick up the first book in a series after at least the second is already available to minimize the initial wait. But like you, I'm pretty bad about most series--I either wait way too long between books and forget all the details or I try to read them so fast that I don't remember what I've read in the first place.

  2. I agree with ceriselumiere. It's practically a crime to not read Anne of Green Gables, at least the first book.
