Top 10 Tuesday: Book Series I Want to Finish
Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl is 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. This week's prompt is to share a series that I wish had more books. I'm changing it up a bit (going rogue, so to speak). I'm going to share ten series I wish I could finish. As in, I just have a book or two left - so what the hell's the problem????? Here goes.
The first one that comes to mind:
I read Jade City and Jade War earlier this year and got sidetracked before finishing the series. WHY? I really like it, but somehow that last 700 page book is ..... waiting. :)
This is the second in the Darker Shade of Magic trilogy that I MUST read soon! I can't believe it's gone so long.....
This is apparently #30 in the Discworld series but I guess the overall series is constructed of multiple smaller series? Anyway, this is one I totally want to get back to because I just LOVED this first foray into this series.
This is the second in the Detective Easton series and I really enjoyed The Night Bird, the first installment. I've read several other Freeman books in the meantime and I always like them. So what am I waiting for?
I read the first one, Dorothy Must Die, and I own the last (fourth) one, The End of Oz, but I haven't made an effort to find/read the middle two. This has been hanging around since 2019. Better get on that one.
This is #8 in a series of 20 and counting starring Andy Carpenter as an attorney and usually revolves around dogs in some way. I love the lighthearted, snarky writing and the strong legal scenes.
I own this trilogy and every time I see it on the shelf I'm reminded I want to read it. Maybe it needs to come off the shelf and live on my nightstand for a while?
Is this a great cover, or what?
Another trilogy that I own the first two books and I'm embarrassed to say they've been on my shelf since 2015 (can that be right????). Has anyone read it - is it worth keeping on my shelf, or should I move it along?
Haven't started this series yet either but it comes so highly recommended, I fully intend to read it - sooner rather than later, I hope!
I know I'm late to this game, but I think the next lengthy series to tackle is going to be the Dresden Files - my son has the whole series, so I can borrow and read at my leisure. I absolutely LOVED the first book so am actually quite looking forward to digging into this series.
AND, just to prove that I actually am capable of completing a series, I'm just finishing the last in the Louise Penny Inspector Gamache series, pending release of her newest installment in November. If you've been following along with my reviews, I think I've reviewed 8 or 10 so far this year. And I've enjoyed every one. The Dresden Files will be a good departure in tone and style for my next series.
I don't know that I REALLY need to learn about any more appealing book series, but I'm going to be wandering through all the blogs anyway, just in case.
Happy Reading this week!
