10 Series I Need to Start Stop Putting Off

I’ve been putting off writing this one because I couldn’t think of any series that I’ve been wanting to start, and haven’t.  Well, how wrong was I, because I wound up with about 30 to choose from.  I didn’t realize I’ve had my eye on so many, and yet to start them.

Thank goodness for Top Ten Tuesday for opening my eyes!


1. Night Angel by Brent Weeks

Way of Shadows

I’ve been wanting to read this one for years, but it’s so hard to take on something this long.  I really need to cut the fear and just do it.  I used to read them like breathing, I need to find that again.

2. Immemorial Year by TJ Klune


I’m trying to work my way through TJ’s backlist, and I think this is the one I want to read next.  I’ve heard really great things about it, I know I’m going to love it.

3. The Gold Seer Trilogy by Rae Carson

Walk the Earth

I love the cover of this one.  I think that’s the main reason I want to read it so bad.  They’re so gorgeous!

4. Firebird by Claudia Gray

Thousand Pieces of You

Everyone raves about this series and so far I’ve only felt mediocre about her writing.  I think this one looks really interesting, and I’ve only heard good things.

5. A Charm of Magpies by KJ Charles

The Magpie Lord

I’ve read quite a few books by KJ Charles now, and yet I haven’t started this first series by her.  It’s been on my to read shelf for so long, and I really just need to stop delaying it.

6. Whyborne & Griffin by Jordan L Hawk


I’ve picked up this book so many times, but always put it back down in favor of something else.  I’m not sure why.  It’s historical, M/M, and paranormal.  That’s a recipe for success.

7. Dancing by Heidi Cullinan

Dance with Me

This is another series that I think has the most gorgeous covers.  I love the motion in the photography.  They’re stunning.  Plus, it’s Heidi Cullinan and so far I’ve loved everything she’s written.

8. The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss

The Name of the Wind

I already own this book in print, but just like the Brent Weeks book, I’m finding it hard to start because of the size.  Large books are intimidating these days.

9. Gentleman Bastard by Scott Lynch


See the above, because it’s exactly true of this one.  I already own but starting it feels like a huge undertaking, so I just keep pushing it back.

10. Kingmaker Chronicles by Amanda Bouchet

Promise of Fire

This one popped on my radar pretty recently.  Everyone is talking about how good it is, and I actually really like the cover.  (Surprisingly since I don’t usually like covers like this.)  I’ll probably try reading this one really soon.

About Birdie

Don’t look for her in any bar, club, crazy raging party, or anywhere there may be a large gathering of strangers. She’s more likely to be found tucked into the corner of the couch watching one of her favorite shows, or preferably under a comforter with her current novel.

  1. A Charm of Magpies was on my list of honourable mentions (I haven’t read KJ Charles yet, though it looks like something I’ll enjoy). I’m currently reading the books that are out in Hexworld and am LOVING them so of course a paranormal historical magic series by the same author (Jordan L. Hawk) was one I had to have on my list! So excited for it!


  2. I too was intimated by the size of the Name of the Wind but it is so worth the effort! Also I kind of cheated and read it on a kindle (like one of the only ebooks I’ve ever read) so that I couldn’t get intimidated by the physical size 😉


  3. I know quite a few people who’ve read and enjoyed Brent Weeks’ works! He’s a fantasy writer, right? I keep meaning to read more fantasy books but the sheer size of some of the books is so intimidating!


  4. I love this list because I know *so few* of these series! Personally, I’m stoked to read The Gold Seer because I really enjoyed Rae Carson’s Fire and Thorns trilogy. I also want to read The Kingkiller Chronicle and– missing from my own TTT — the Gentleman Bastard series. For the later– well, 7 books? It’ll take me a while to get to this one, even after the series is all published!


  5. There are a few book series I hear people raving about and I feel meh about the writing. I think it’s interesting, to say the least. I forgot about Rae Carson’s new series. I loved the last one and should probably add this one to my TBR. Ha! Happy reading!

  6. You sooooooo need to read Immemorial Year! I gave the first book 5 stars, and I rarely give 5 stars. It’s pretty different from Klune’s usual stuff from what I understand though (it was the first book I read by him, so I had no idea what his writing was like). Pretty sure I also have the Dance with Me book. The problem is that I don’t read contemp anymore, but now I own it, so I might still give it a go one day.
