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!



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!
