Top Ten Tuesday: Book Series I Want to Finish

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Series I’ve Given Up On/Don’t Plan to Finish, but instead, I’m going to focus on book series I still want to finish, even if it’s been a while since I read the first book.


Queen’s Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner: I read The Thief years ago at the suggestion of a friend, but I guess I never realized it was part of a series. When Thick as Thieves came out last year, I was so intrigued that I decided I need to reread The Thief and then read the rest of the series!

Wings of Fire series by Tui T. Sutherland: I read the first book in the Wings of Fire series, The Dragonet Prophecy, and absolutely loved it. The main characters are dragons! I just need to find the time to read through the rest of the series, which includes… fifteen books?

Space Trilogy by C.S. Lewis: I received a copy of Out of the Silent Planet for my birthday one year, and I thought it was an interesting take on science-fiction and space travel. I never finished the trilogy though, despite receiving a three-in-one edition for a different birthday.

Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones: Just like with The Thief, I had no idea that Howl’s Moving Castle is part of a trilogy. I haven’t heard a lot of people talk about the other books in the series, but I do want to give them a chance. Right after I reread Howl’s Moving Castle, which I’ve been wanting to do for years.

Firebird trilogy by Claudia Gray: I’ve read both A Thousand Pieces of You and Ten Thousand Skies Above You and while there are elements of them that I think are over exaggerated and too teen angsty, the concept is incredible. All the different parallel universes are so fun that I still want to read A Million Worlds with You.

Food Wars by Yuto Tsukuda: This manga series makes me really hungry, but it’s fun to read about the cooking competitions at an elite cooking school. I’ve read several of the volumes, and I just need to get back to reading the rest of them.

Jackaby series by William Ritter: I absolutely love the Jackaby books. It’s a fun, paranormal mystery middle grade series full of wonderful creatures and intriguing concepts. I’ve read the first three books and just need to The Dire King, which I will hopefully get to soon.

Fairy Tail by Hiro Mashima: Fairy Tail is a really long manga series, but it recently ended, which makes me feel like I can finally catch up. It’s fun and absolutely ridiculous as well.

Ender’s Saga by Orson Scott Card: I’ve read Ender’s Game a few times, but I never continued with the rest of the saga or any of the spin-off series. At some point, I’d like to return to Ender’s world and finish his story, but it might not be for a while.

The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor: I read The Looking Glass Wars and Seeing Redd a long time ago, but I never finished the series. For some reason, I thought there were four books in the series and that Archenemy, which I own, was book four. But it’s actually a trilogy. This whole time I’ve been waiting to read the third book when I’ve had it in my possession. *sigh*

  1. I read the first jackaby book and it was great but then the second turn out to be about vampires and I have to pass. I just don’t like reading about vampires.

    howl’s moving castle was just okay, I think the movie is way better.

    I have no interest in the other series on your list.

    have a lovely day.

  2. I have the rest of the Howl’s series on my TBR, too! I have the second book, but haven’t gotten to it yet. I’ve only seen the reviews posted on Goodreads, and haven’t actually spoken to anyone about the rest of the books, but I’m still excited to try them!

    • I don’t think I realized there were more books until a few years ago! And I haven’t gotten around to reading them yet either.
