Top Ten Series I need to Read
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

1. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
I'm not interested in Shiver (werewolves... eh), but I'm dying to read something by this author. Raven Boys sounds amazing!

2. Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Berry
It's my *favorite* play, but I have yet to read the books that inspired it!

3. Bloody Jack by LA Meyer
Pirates and girl power= my dream book. I even own it. Now I just have to read it!

4. Everlost by Neal Shusterman
Cheating a bit with this one. I've read the first one and loved it, but for some reason I never read the rest.

5. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Another one that I own. This was actually one of my most anticipated reads of 2012. Haha... I'll get to it this year!

6. Jessica Darling by Megan McCafferty
SO many of my favorite bloggers rave about these books. I need to read them!

7. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
Magic? Boarding School? WHY HAVE I NOT READ THIS YET??

8. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
It sounds so terrifying... and awesome!

9. Unwind by Neal Shusterman
This one will be amended... it's next month's book club read!

10. The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien
I know! I call myself a fantasy fan and yet I've never read these!! I have read The Hobbit, though.

What series are you planning to read?

  1. I really want to see the play Peter and the Starcatcher. I've read the books, though, and they are fantastic. So are the audios. I highly recommend them.

    Also, oh my gosh, you have to read Cinder and Scarlet. You will not be let down.

  2. Ok, where to start? #1-right there with you, Wolves was blech, but LOVED The Raven Boys. Bloody Jack is one of my favorite series. Cinder and Scarlet are super and so is Hex Hall. I own all of the Jessica Darlings but only read the first so far. Very cute. Anna was creepy, but I haven't read the second yet. You have some great series to start! Get busy! http://wp.me/pzUn5-1r2

  3. The Raven Boys wasn't my favorite. I did however love Shiver. Cinder is definitely everything it's cracked up to be and I just finished Scarlet last week. I liked it better than Cinder.

    Check out my TTT.

  4. The Hex Hall series is funny and enjoyable. I really want to read the Jessica Darling series! And I still need to read my copy of The Raven Boys cause I love Maggie Stiefvater.
    I wasn't impressed with Anna Dressed in Blood but a lot of people seemed to love it. I'm reading Cinder right now...eh.
    I've never heard of Blood Jack but I do love pirates so I'll have to check that one out!

  5. I think if you want to try a maggie stivoter book you should try scorpio races first before raven boys as a big fan of hers...I just didn't like raven boys I couldn't finish it

    Also don't lump shiver in with all those other wereolf books it is NOT what you think I implore you please just read chapter one of shiver its only one page read chapter one and two becuse these "werewolves" are not what you think and you shouldn't pass on this book becuse of the word "werewolves" its a beutiful romance with a bit of a thriller in that there is a time crunch when will sam turn back into a wolf? how long does grace have with him?

    Please at least read chapter one

    Also start with her other book the scorpio races: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10626594-the-scorpio-races

    Shiver is soft and fluffy like snow

    Scorpio is hard and grisly like the world it inhabits

    raven boys is an exprement of a third person pov

    I just don't want your first Maggie exprence to be a sour one is all

    1. I just find the premise of Raven Boys very intriguing. Also I've seen a lot of reviews that have said that while the Scorpio Races is beautifully written, the first half is very, very slow. I'll definitely take what you said about the Shiver books into consideration, though, and try the first chapter. Thanks for the advice!
