Top Ten Series I Haven’t Finished Yet


(TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

This table I made to keep track of my series tells me that I’m currently reading 76 series. It wasn’t the easiest task to choose only ten out of those. There are a lot more I desperately want to finish, a lot of them aren’t even finished yet and I’m still waiting for a lot of books to come out.

The-5th-wave The-Diviners

+ The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
Rick Yancey easily became one of my favorite authors last year. I finished his Monstrumologist series last year, loved it and was sad that it was over. I will get to read two more  books in his 5th Wave series and I wish they would come out sooner. Alien invasion for the win! He is always able to bring something new to the YA genre.

+ The Diviners by Libba Bray
I already knew from publication dates of her Gemma Doyle series that this series would demand one great deal of patience (which I don’t have!). I loved the first book in the series so much that I read this chunk of a book within 24 hours. It’s obviously a good thing that she takes her time writing these books but I NEED THE SECOND BOOK NOW!

BZRK The-Raven-cycle

+ BZRK by Michael Grant
This is one big mindf*ck! Seriously! This idea is so creepy and feels so real while reading! This is right up my alley but so detailed that I should probably reread the first two books before I finish it with the third book this year.

+ The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
Maggie Stiefvater has a talent to create characters that are completely adorable and who won’t let me go until I know their whole story. I loved Grace and Sam’s story and even though it still a long time until we get to read the end of the Raven Boys’ story, I’m already sad when I think about saying goodbye to them too.

The-Rithmatist Insignia

+ The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson
One of a few series by Brandon Sanderson that blew my mind this year. He is a genius when it comes to worldbuiling. With this one he might actually get people interested in math! XD

+ Insignia by S.J. Kincaid
I’m so excited to read the conclusion to this series this year. This is such a funny and interesting series with great characters.

Mara-Dyer Daughter-of-Smoke-and-Bone

+ Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
The last book should have come out 2013 and we’re still waiting and IT’S KILLING ME! I’m in desperate need of something swoon worthy from Noah!

+ Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Laini Taylor has the most beautiful writing and even though I didn’t like the end of DoSaB, I love this series a whole lot. Days of Blood and Starlight was amazing, Night of Cake and Puppets caused a lot of swooning and I’m dying to get my hands on the last book.

age-of-Legends White-space

+ The Age of Legends by Kelley Armstrong
Okay, the first book isn’t even out yet but I got to read it early and I LOVED IT! Kelley Armstrong writing epic fantasy is the best thing ever and I NEED MORE!

+ Dark Passages by Ilsa J. Bick
White Space was epic and I’m still confused and have no idea what was going on. I wish the next book would come out sooner so that I can finally find out.
