Top Ten Series I Have Yet To Finish
This week was a 'rewind' week, where we look back over the previous topics and choose one. I narrowed this down to three choices quite easily, but then I started having some problems. What to pick, what to pick. Finally, I jumped aboard with this one. So here we go. (Roughly in order of my least favorite to my favorite.)
10) The Lord of the Rings Series by J.R.R. Tolkien
Even though I loved the movies and fantasy is my genre, I met the first book in this series with a 'meh' response. I do plan on reading the rest - if only to say I have.
9) Study Series by Maria V. Snyder
I found the first book to be good, but not great, and have put off buying any more in the series because of all the people that thought the first book was the best in the series.
8) Magnificent Devices Series by Shelley Adina
While I do love this series, I'm beginning to wish the books would finally wrap up - or at least the romance that it getting dragged out nearly endlessly would be resolved.
7) Finishing School Series by Gail Carriger
I've read and enjoyed the first two in this series and am just waiting for the third one that releases at the end of this year.
6) Tales of the Ketty Jay Series by Chris Wooding
Although we got off to a bumpy start, I wound up really enjoying the first book in the series and am excited to see what happens next.
5) The Emperor's Edge Series by Lindsay Buroker
I've only read the first one, but it was such a fun book that I'm really looking forward to the next one.
And it's not like I was infatuated with an assassin or anything.
4) The Rithmatist Series by Brandon Sanderson
Bought the book. Loved the book. Realized that the second in the series doesn't release until 2015. Felt like I was going to die.
3) Ice Age Cycle Series by Jeff Grubb
Although I loved, seriously loved, the first two books in the series, the third and final is so ridiculously expensive - as it is out of print - that I haven't gotten to read it yet.
2) Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas
The first book in this series was so awesome and I am really, really looking forward to clearing a couple more books from my shelf so I can read the second one.
1) The Riyria Revelations Series by Michael J. Sullivan
I love this series. Right from the first book (Crown Conspiracy) I knew I was on to something great. For me, this is exactly what I love in my fantasy novels. We've got a pair of wonderful Heterosexual Life Partners in Hadrian and Royce, lots of sword fights and battle scenes and an eclectic cast of secondary characters.
This was really fun to put together and it made me realize that I still have quite a few series to finish.
