Top Ten Series Books I Want to Start


Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature from The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is the Top New Series I Want To Start.

I started jotting down series books I haven’t read and came up with a lot! I think I’m not a “series” girl at heart but there are some that have caught my eye. I just started reading the Outlander series (I’m on book 3) so that is taking up all the series real estate on my kindle – but when I’m done look out!

We are focusing on “New” series books so I’m interpreting that as the series is either ongoing or just wrapped in the last year.

I want to read these series books, I really do:


1. The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater – I have read all of Stiefvater’s other books so I’m not sure why I haven’t started this series yet. The third book Blue Lily, Lily Blue is on sale today so I think a binge read is in order.

2. The Starbound series by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner – I haven’t read a good space-set series since Across the Universe. And these covers are so pretty!

3. The Grisha series by Leigh Bardugo – I have the whole trilogy in audio format and just need to get listening.

4. His Fair Assassin series by Robin LaFevers – Now that the series conclusion is almost here this is another binge read candidate.

5. Nantucket series by Leila Howland – This duology looks perfect for summer.



6. Marked Men series by Jay Crownover – I got a little burned out on NA, but I keep hearing good things about this series.

7. Game On series by Kristen Callihan – This is the first book in a new NA sports romance series and it’s also getting good buzz.

8. Blue Heron series by Kristan Higgins – The fourth book in this series, In Your Dreams, just came out a few weeks ago. This series looks sweet and fun!

9. Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis –  The 12th and final book, One in a Million, just hit shelves this month! I have some catching up to do.

10. Cocktail series by Alice Clayton – This humorous romance series looks fun.The fourth book, Mai Tai’d Up, comes out in December.

 What series are you eager to try? Have you read any of these- which one should I move to the top of the list?

  1. I don’t think I’m really a series girl either. I’ve read books from plenty of series but have never really kept up with any. You’ve made a great list!

  2. I also have The Raven Cycle on my list. And I actually own all three His Fair Assassin books, the last two are ARCs I got at SDCC, so I have no excuse:-) Good luck, hope you find time to start them soon:-)

  3. This Shattered World looks awesome! I’ve been watching the reviews for awhile and I think I might actually have to pick it up sometime soon. Great list!

  4. We have so many series in common! The Raven Cycle (I just started this on audio on Monday and it is AMAZING!!! So recommend it), His Fair Assassin, The Grisha series. I’ve recently gotten into Lucky Harbor and I’m so addicted. I didn’t love the first book, but some of the more recent books I’ve LOVED SO MUCH! I can’t wait to read One in a Million.

    I’m with you on the His Fair Assassin trilogy — need to get started soon. I’ve read the first of the Grisha trilogy and loved it, so I can’t understand why I haven’t read the other two yet. I read the first of the Starbound series last year and wasn’t impressed. Not bad, just meh. If you are looking for a sic-fi space series, opt for Ann Leckie’s Ancillary Justice and the second book Ancillary Sword which just came out. It takes a while for the structure of Ancillary Sword to become clear, but it’s compelling, interesting and thought-provoking as well as entertaining.

  6. Brilliant picks! Some of these are series I have started and am loving so far – Starbound and the Nantucket series. I really want to read Grisha and Raven Boys series. I hope you can get to some of these soon 🙂 Here’s my TTT.

  7. I’m the opposite of you, I love series. I just hate finishing them,lol. The Grisha and His Fair Assassin series are fantastic!

  8. I should’ve included the His Fair Assassin series on my list! I’ve had it on my TBR for sometime now, and I have yet to get to it. But I’m sure we’re both in for a real treat. I finished reading The Raven Boys recently, and OH MY WORD! It is a very special book indeed. I’m getting into The Dream Thieves later this week, and shortly thereafter, BLUE LILY, LILY BLUE! I want to read all of Maggie’s books at some point. I haven’t read her series on faeries, but if it’s written by Maggie, I know I’ll love it. The Starbound series is another awesome story! I read This Shattered World over the summer, and I just can’t wait to return to this world later this year!

    Great picks, Lucy! & Thanks for visiting me today. 🙂

    Adding the His Fair Assassin to my TBR list 🙂

  12. Lots of great choices! I definitely recommend…
    the Starbound trilogy – books 1 and 2 are so so good. awesome world building and characters you’ll love.
    Jill Shalvis – it’s such a fun, relaxing series! I’m sad it’s over.
    The Hook Up – this is one of those NAs that probably shouldn’t have worked for me, but I loved it.
    His Fair Assassin – what’s not to love?! kickass heroines and swoony love interests.
    Hope you get around to reading these!

    I have so many unfinished series already that I don’t think I can start anymore without feeling horribly guilty!

  14. The Assassin series is soooo good! And I really liked The Hook Up. You should give it a try. Her paranormal series is awesome.
