Top 10 Series I'd Like to Start

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Top Ten Series I'd Like To Start But Haven't Yet:

I didn't think I would be able to come up with ten, but I ended up cutting some from my list! ("Matched" and "Legend" for example)

1. The Wingfeather Saga by Andrew Peterson
I really need to get started on this one since I actually have all three books!
On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness North! or Be Eaten The Monster in the Hollows

2. The Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth

3. Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
I have at least the first one sitting on my shelf... (UPDATE: I have read the first one now! As of 6/21/2013)

4. The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini
I think I have the first three or maybe even four in this series...

5. Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan

6. Temeraire by Naomi Novik
I have three or four of these books as well.

7. His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman

8. Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
I'm not really sure about this one... I keep going back and forth on whether or not I want to read it. (I have not seen the show.) Changed my mind about that one.

9. The Dark Tower by Stephen King

10. The Pendragon Cycle by Stephen R. Lawhead

Hmm, do you see a theme here?

The Inheritance Cycle is one of my favorites! They're long but worth it. Thank you for stopping by! New follower:)

Thanks Esty!

Yep I see a theme :) My TTT came out quite theme focused as well. I've read the first book of Ender series (twice, even), I love Martin's series and His Dark Materials was also very enjoyable. Like you, I too want to read Wheel of Time and The Dark Tower. Happy reading :)

I LOVE the theme.

I read the first of the Inheritance Cycle and couldn't get into it... but that was before I really took to fantasy, so I'm rather tempted to try it again.

Regarding George R.R. Martin, depends on whether you like gritty, brutally realistic writing. And I mean gritty & brutal. Not to say he can't write well & compellingly. Just gritty & brutally, if I haven't mentioned that yet. :)

Thanks for the comments!

George, I don't tend to like gritty and brutal so maybe I will stay away from this one! Thanks for the tip!
