Today's Top 10 Tuesday from The Broke and the Bookish is perfect timing! Joining the book blogging world beyond Goodreads has introduced me to so many new obsessions in the blogosphere, usually in the form of favorite or beloved book series. Since I joined the 2013 Series Catch-Up challenge this year, I've been even more motivated to knock some of these off of my TBR list!
My Top Ten Series I'd Like to Start:
1. The Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire) series by George R.R. Martin
I've loved watching Game of Thrones on HBO because it's so beautiful, but I bet the storyline is far better in this wildly popular series.
2. The Stephanie Perkins "trilogy"
Sometimes I think I'm the only person in the entire book blogging world who hasn't read these beloved books. I have to say the new covers just make me want to pick them up even more now!
3. The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater
I've seen these on shelves and in hands forever, but for the longest time thought they looked like a yet another Twilight ripoff, but I'd like to make my own mind up.
4. The Daughter of Smoke and Bone series by Laini Taylor
People absolutely rave about Laini Taylor's writing and if there's one thing I love more than just good storytelling, it's great writing. This is definitely at the top of my "to-read" series list and will probably be one of the first ones I pick up this year
5. The Uglies series by Scott Westerfield
These have been out so long they're almost a "classic" but I've never even glanced at them!
6. The Unearthly series by Cynthia Hand
I know you're not supposed to judge a series by their covers, but check out how cool these look. Plus, I'd love to know what the hype is all about.
7. The Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer
That Lunar Chronicles series is so hot right now. No, but really... I feel so left out since I haven't read either of these, or the next two, Cress and Winter. Love these not-so-classic retellings.
8. The Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi
Another somewhat controversial pick, people seem to uniformly love Shatter Me although theres some difference in opinion on the last one, and wherever there are differences I like to make up my own mind.
9. The Grisha series by Leigh Bardugo
This series sounds like it has an incredibly detailed and believable fantasy world. It reminds me a little of Harry Potter, not because of the plot but because of the uniqueness and depth of the world it's set in. I'm looking forward to seeing if people are right about that.
10. The Graceling Realm series by Kristin Cashore
Of all the series I've seen online, I don't think I've ever seen a bad word written about this one. I actually have been putting off starting it because I'm a little afraid I might fall in love with it as well.
Those are my picks! What are yours?
