Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme for list-loving bloggers that is hosted by the fabulous team over at The Broke and the Bookish. Every week, readers compile a list of their favorite books, authors, or other literature-related things that fall under a certain category.
After scrolling through my Goodreads to-read shelf to find material for this particular topic, I realized how many series I have started and not finished because I prefer to spread series out over many months or even years. Most of these first books were published recently or have not yet hit shelves, so this list is nowhere near as excuse-laden as I am sure some will be today. There are a few, though, that I desperately need to start, and that embedded list-within-a-list starts with Shatter Me.
I have heard more effusive praise for the writing in this trilogy than almost any other YA novel, and I hate the fact that I have yet to pick it up.
I am quite excited to mentally compare this one to Meg Cabot's Abandon trilogy.
I can only hope this will be as wonderfully creepy as it sounds.
Despite claims that the first book is no Ally Carter novel, I am still desperate for more Benway wit, and the author's tweets about a sequel have only made me more so.
This author seems to be so beloved, even among contemporary readers, and this series sounds excitingly action-packed.
I can already tell these books will definitely be different than anything else I have read.
All the drama of a Pretty Little Liars-esque story without the ridiculous dragging out of the plot line? This should be an entertaining read.
My preliminary opinion on this recent influx of Downton Abbey-inspired YA is that I approve. Strongly. I just hope that it will live up to my expectations.
I had so much fun with The Clique as a middle schooler and I am glad Harrison is transferring her super-smart plays on words to a series for older readers.
From an unreliable narrator to a past made of secrets, this trilogy seems to have it all and I am terribly behind on it.
There you have it: the ten series I am most excited to start. Which ones are on your list? And are your series reading habits similar to mine-starting them and reading them over a long period of time? Or do you prefer to binge? Let me know!
