top ten tuesday

Well, well, well… if this isn’t the most fitting topic for me I don’t know what is! I am CONSTANTLY shelving new series on Goodreads/buying new series (and not reading them). I LOVEEEE series, the problem is there are too many of them and I have no idea how to organize my reading πŸ˜›

I have somehow, SOMEHOW, narrowed this down to the very TOP (as of right now at least) series that I want to start…

His Fair Assassin
His Fair Assassin series by Robin LaFevers
This series just sounds amazing!! Assassin nuns, historical fiction?! I meant to get to this a long time ago but for some reason I still haven’t picked it up yet! It could be the daunting size of Grave Mercy, but really… that’s no excuse!

The Dark Elements
The Dark Elements series by Jennifer L. Armentrout
This is exactly my type of read: paranormal, gargoyles, romance! Jennifer L. Armentrout is probably one of my top need-to-read-authors. I have so many of her books and have only read ONE! The shame in it all…

mara dyer
Mara Dyer series by Michelle Hodkin
I’ve had the first two books in this series forever, FOREVER! The real reason why I haven’t started is because when I first found about it, the third book kept getting pushed back and pushed back so I didn’t want to start it and be anxiously waiting for the end.Β Now that the third book is set to come out, I think I’m reading to take the plunge! I’ve heard it’s really effed up… exactly my type of read!

Bloodlines
Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead
Ok, the real reason why I haven’t started this is pretty silly. I bought The Golden Lily because it was on sale at the book store, but I didn’t own Bloodlines. The problem is, Bloodlines is only in paperback at the bookstore and now I own The Golden Lily in hardback. And I have just been to damn lazy to order the rest of the series in hardback honestly. I have no other reason *shrugs*. I really loved Vampire Academy, so it’s actually surprising that I have really waited this long to read it!

Daughter of Smoke & Bone
Daughter of Smoke & Bone series by Laini Taylor
These are seriously HUGE books! Much like Grave Mercy, that is probably the main reason why I have set this series aside. I started the audiobook a bazillion years ago, but I wasn’t fond of the narrator so I picked up the book when it was on sale. The problem is, I haven’t actually started reading it again :/

percy jackson
Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan
*hides* I KNOW! I have zero idea how I haven’t read this by now… it’s a mystery to me as well. I was almost too embarassed to put this on the list πŸ˜› It will happen though friends!!

the white rabbit chronicles
The White Rabbit Chronicles series by Gena Showalter
I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about this series, and specifically Cole Holland so it has to happen… I need to start this one soon!

The Courier's Daughter Trilogy
The Courier’s Daughter Trilogy by C.J. Redwine
Well first of all, the covers of this series are amazing. Just beautiful… I could stare at them all day. Anyway… I added this to my TBR during my fantasy obsession (which I’m still in) and I really want to read this! I’ve heard fabulous things about it.

Mythos Academy
Mythos Academy series by Jennifer Estep
Boarding School and mythology? Yes please! I actually forgot that I had the first book in this series because I purchased it on a Kobo deal, and I never ever use my Kobo app. I was browsing it the other day and there it was! YES! I think I might start this series soon because I’ve been looking for something fun to read, and this seems like it would fit the bill.

Covenant
Covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Yet another JLA series that I need to start and also another mythology series. This really seems like an awesome fall read for me, so hopefully I will get to this soon!!

      *hides* Please don’t yell!! lol.

      Don’t worry, i will be reading them all, and very, very, very soon hopefully!! I think I’m going to start with Covenants because I own the first two books and jeez… let’s be honest, I really need to read JLA!

      Definitely start with VA! I haven’t read Bloodlines (obvs) but it takes place after VA so there are probably spoilers, and you need to experience all the feels <3

    I also have Daughter of Smoke & Bone, Mara Dyer, and Bloodlines in my list! I loved PJO and I hope you do too πŸ™‚

    • Lauren

      Thanks πŸ™‚ I’m so excited that someone else has these series on their list too! Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one who hasn’t read a ton of series πŸ˜›

    • Lauren

      Yah, I agree… the good thing about most of these series is that they are already finished so I can binge read them as well when the time comes πŸ™‚

    • Lauren

      Gosh, it seems like that is the ONE that I need to read first based on the reactions from you and everyone today πŸ™‚ I’m so happy that everyone loves that so much… I will have so many people to swoon with about it when I finally get to it, YESSSSS!!! I love bad ass chicks in books so I am pretty sure I will really love it πŸ™‚

    • Lauren

      I just really need to see what all the hype is about πŸ˜› And it’s incredibly hard to avoid spoilers about this series, I’ve tried to read reviews and i’ve had to stop!!! I need to get to this soon I think because I’m sure when the third book comes out it will be EVERYWHERE!!!

    I’ve read the first Mara Dyer book, the first two Daughter of Smoke and Bone books, the whole Percy Jackson series, and the whole Mythos series. I really loved the first three..and the Mythos series was pretty good but I got burnt out really quickly on it.

    • Lauren

      Yah, I can see how that happens… it does with series for me as well, especially if there are more than 3 books! It’s worth a shot though, we will see πŸ™‚

  4. Mel@thedailyprophecy

    HIS FAIR ASSASSIN. YES PLEASE. READ IT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! I’m a huge fangirl of this series and it’s everything you could ever wish for mashed together in one series <3

    Daughter of smoke and bone is also very good. I had some struggle with the first book, but the second one blew me away.

    I'm currently reading the second book in the Percy Jackson series, so you're not alone :p

    Defiance wasn't bad, I should pick up the sequel soon.

      EEk, after today, I feel like reading Grave Mercy like TONIGHT haha. If I didn’t have 3 books on the go, I totally would… maybe this weekend πŸ™‚

      YES, omg seriously, I’m incredibly excited that I am not the only one who hasn’t read Percy Jackson! I seriously feel like it’s almost on the same level as not having read HP … !!

  5. Kayla @ The Thousand Lives

    I need to read Bloodlines as well! Though I’ve still not finished VA, oops πŸ˜›

    I DON’T CARE HOW BIG THE DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE BOOKS ARE YOU MUST READ THEIR GLORIOUSNESS. ALL 2K PAGES.

    *side eyes about PJO* Jk – I still love you. But really, you need to read them πŸ™‚

    • Lauren

      P.S. Did you notice what series is NOT on this list HMMM… Throne of Glass… that’s right, because I’ve STARTED it πŸ™‚ See… I’m moving on up haha. And double P.S. You were totally right. I’m obsessed !!!

  6. Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads

    I didn’t do a list this week, but Grave Mercy and the JLA series would be on my list too! I was actually hoping to binge read Mara Dyer next month — wanna read together? Also, after we conquered Throne of Glass with such SUCCESS maybe Grave Mercy should be our next fantastical adventure?

    • Lauren

      YESS!!! Let’s do Mara Dyer and Grave Mercy πŸ™‚ I’m in limbo right now with Throne of Glass because I’m waiting for COM at the library (I’ve been meaning to reply to your text all weekend and keep forgetting AHH… I’m going to do it tonight ahha)! BUT YES to Mara and grave Mercy !!
