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*
