Top 10 Tuesday: Series I'd Like to Start, Catch up on, or Finish



This week's prompt for Top Ten Tuesday is all about the series. Series I want to start, catch up on, or finish. I actually have some in mind to tackle next year. Thanks Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl for hosting another week of Top Ten Tuesday. I enjoy participating each week for a couple reasons. I'm a compulsive list maker and love a good list. And, I love a connection with other readers as I wander their book blogs. Except for the huge volume of books I add to my TBR.......not a bad problem to have. Here goes.


Series I want to start:

The reality is - I have several I'm interested in starting, but there's no way until after the first of the year. Then, I plan on these:



Iron Lake by William Kent Krueger

The Cork O'Connor series


I've read a couple by Krueger and loved them, so I'm excited to start this series. I've had Iron Lake, the first in the series, on my bookshelf since 2019. I think the 19th was just released this year. I read 16 of Louise Penny, I can read 19 of his!








Fool Moon #2 by Jim Butcher

The Dresden Files series


I actually read Storm Front (mini review here) a couple years ago as a Buddy Read with my sister and it keeps crossing my mind to read more. My son just happens to have the whole series (and off shoot ones as well), so he loaned me the first 5-6 to get started. I'm excited to have a mystery series with a bit of magic!







Murder at Haven's Rock by Kelley Armstrong

The spin-off to the Rockton series


I read and loved all seven of the Rockton series - I wasn't sure whether to put this in 'new' series or 'catch up' on but since it's taking old characters in a new place, I'm going to call it new. :) I actually have the Murder at Haven's Rock ARC and have shown amazing restraint not to read it yet (I try to read them in order of publication date, but this one is going to leap over others I think.)






Series I want to catch up on or continue:



Thirteen Hours #2 by Deon Meyer

The Benny Griessel series


I just read the first one is this series, Devil's Peak (review here), on the recommendation of Mareli at Elza Reads. She did not lead me astray and I'm eager to read more of this South African author.







Grave Lies #1 by A.N. Willis

The Mercury Mediums series


I read Grave Lies (review here) as an ARC from BookSirens, which is the first of this new series and it's delightful. Definitely a mystery but part of the investigation team are a psychic and one who can see and interact with ghosts. I'm ready for more!







The World We Make #2 by N. K. Jemisin

Great Cities series


This is book two in a trilogy and I'm hoping the final one comes out next year. I'm here for it, whenever it comes out.







The Plea #2 by Steve Cavanagh

The Eddie Flynn series


Currently there are seven in this series and I've read two. I read Th1rt3en (a 5 star read) when it came out because I read it could be a standalone. But, I want to read them all in order - a legal series where the lawyer used to be a con-man and has interesting tricks up his sleeves.








Series I want to finish:



Jade Legacy #3 by Fonda Lee

The Green Bone Saga (trilogy)


I devoured the first two books and then got sidetracked and didn't go back and finish the series. Now I'm not sure I'll remember who all the multitude of characters are, but I want to give it a shot since I liked the first couple so much.







All of Our Demise #2 by Amanda Foody

All of Us Villains duology


This should be my easiest to accomplish since I've already requested it from the library and just waiting my turn.







The Trapped Girl #4 by Robert Dugoni

The Tracy Crosswhite detective series


I've read 1-3 and 5 (somehow skipped 4???) and I own 4, 6, and 7. It's time to dust this series off and finish it. If you haven't read any Dugoni yet, I highly recommend him.







I'm guessing there will be lots of detective and fantasy series on lists this week. I'm going to have to try to be realistic in what I add to my TBR, but it's going to be tough! Happy Reading everyone.





Welcome to Bookshelf Journeys.

It's my goal to provide real reviews of the books I read without totally rehashing every plot. I'll never spoil a story by giving away a plot twist! Hopefully you'll find one or two of interest and will discover a new book or author to add to YOUR TBR list.  Take a moment to explore, read a couple reviews, and let me know what you think.

                            TIPS

For your convenience, I use #hashtags in the reviews and when you click on one, you'll find more books with that theme. Hopefully you'll find it a helpful way to navigate the site and find books you'll enjoy. I've also recently added tags that will show up at the end of each review that serve the same purpose.

The review ratings are based on a 5 star  (1/2 stars sometimes) system with a 3 being an average read for me. I hope you find that helpful. Knowing, of course, that all opinions are just that - my opinion!  Let me know if you agree or disagree - I'd love to hear from you.

If you like what you see and want to keep up with me, subscribe below.  Happy Reading!
