Top Ten Tuesday: 2014 Series I Am Dying To Read

 

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke & The Bookish. Each week they host a different top ten topic.

I am having a hard time with this one as a lot of 2014 releases that I want to read I now have as ARCs and not sure if they still count. So instead I want to do the top ten series I want to read in 2014, all ones that have new releases coming in 2014.

Top Ten Series I Am Dying To Read In 2014




1. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

I have the first two sitting on my bookshelf right now but still haven't got to them. I really want to read them as I have heard nothing but good things about them. But the fact that I know after the third one I would still need to wait till 2015 for the fourth... well I am the most impatient person ever. May wait until the third is out before I start.




2. The Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Another series I have been dying to start for so long now because of all the wonderful things I have been told about it. The first two are sitting on my bookshelf and I really need to make an effort to get to them soon!




3. The Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Have heard great things and have had these recommended to me a few times. Do want to give them a try but am going to borrow not buy. Those covers, my god, those covers are hideous!




4. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

This is definitely on my Christmas wishlist this year, so hopefully the boyfriend has been paying attention. It looks really great, I've been dying to read it for ages now and I keep seeing amazing reviews. Hopefully I enjoy it as much as everyone else seems to.





5. Razorland by Ann Aguirre

Although these are all technically out, the third book is only out in hardback and the first two I ordered for myself are paperback. So I still have to wait till 2014 for that one as my set needs to match, yes I'm one of those people!




6. Ashfall by Mike Mullin

I have seen this series around and it looks really interesting. Although the covers look more like they are for some historical fiction to do with Rome in my opinion.






7. The Program by Suzanne Young

I am really excited to start this series. I have the first in hardback that just arrived this week and I also have the second as an ARC so won't have to wait. Very excited for this one.





8. The Grisha by Leigh Bardugo

Another series I have been meaning to read for a while now. Have almost bought the first one on more than one occasion but am waiting for the second to be available in paperback too. I know most people prefer hardback, they last longer but when you have to carry it to work everyday to read it's just impractical.



9. Pivot Point by Kasie West

Have seen some really great reviews and so I am quite excited to get my hands on this one. I am beginning to realise just how many books are on this list and the time it will take me to read the, but oh well!




10. The Archived by Victoria Schwab

The first book is most definitely on my Christmas wishlist this year! This series looks really great and I am quite excited to start it, plus the sequel is released soon so I won't have a long wait!




So there you have it, ten series I really need to hurry up and start. 29 books, way too many pages and who knows how many hours of reading. I look forward to it!

Leave a link to your own Top Ten post so I can come check it out.
If you have read any of these series, which one would you recommend for me to start with? Or what was your favourite?

  4. Love the Lux series (have to agree with you about the covers and that's one of the reasons I love my Kindle, don't have to see them!). Lunar Chronicles so great...can't wait for Cress to come out this year. Pivot Point was so good, excited to read Split Second. And Shatter Me...so good! Can't wait for Ignite Me. So many great series you've chosen!! ~Pam

    1. I was tempted to get them on Kindle but luckily we just ordered the whole set in at work so I get to borrow them for nothing! I don't even know where to start but I definitely need to read these all by the end of 2014!

  5. Great top ten! You should totally read the Lunar Chronicles. The first two books blew me away. The same for the Lux series. Amazing books. Especially Origin, which I read recently. And oh my gosh, Shatter Me. So beautiful! :D

    Also thanks again for donating books to my giveaway and for sharing it on your blog. You rock! :D

    My Top Ten!

      You're very welcome, I'm happy to take part and congrats again on the two year blogoversary!

    I know I'm in the minority here, but wasn't a fan of Shatter Me. Hopefully you have better luck there.
    I'm going to read The Archived this month. I was waiting until the second book was released, but I can't wait any longer. :)
    Great list!

  20. I think it's kind of awesome that you get to read all those series after most of the books are already out. I tend to lose momentum after I've read the first book and have to wait a year or more for the next one. Except with the Lunar Chronicles. Those books are amazing.
