Series I Need to Get Serious About

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, Top Ten Tuesday invites bookish bloggers to share lists based on a given topic. This week I’ll be talking about series I have yet to start!

The List

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas – I’m honestly embarrassed that I haven’t even started reading this sure-to-be amazing series! I’ve had all the books forever, but others have taken precedent. Once I start a series, I tend to become obsessed and MUST read all the books and I just haven’t nailed down a good time to start.

The Dark Artifices by Cassandra Clare – Well, so far, the only book I’ve read by Clare is Clockwork Angel, which I adored. The steampunk vibes of the story intrigued me. I want to hurry up and get to Lady Midnight and Lord of Shadows, but I feel like I should read Clare’s interconnected tales in order!

P.S. I just discovered the order Clare recommends reading them in on Goodreads! 😀 Naturally, I started way out of order!

The Young Elites by Marie Lu – This series caught my eye when I fell in love with the title of book two, The Rose Society. When I realized that there is a book previous to number two, The Young Elites, I knew this series needed to be read by me!

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo – I absolutely adore the Shadow and Bone trilogy and I can’t wait to get to this duology! If Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom are half as good as the Grisha trilogy, I’ll be one happy reader!

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han – I’m really looking forward to this series; it just seems so sweet! Plus, I’m hoping the books are full of fluff!

Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton – I’ve had the first book in the series, Rebel of the Sands, on audio for what seems like forever, but still haven’t listened to it. I’ve heard lots of good things about Hamilton’s series and I’m looking forward to carving out a place in my TBR pile for it!

Shades of Magic by V.E. Schwab – I do actually have the first book, A Darker Shade of Magic, on my Kindle and actually started reading it before getting bored and putting it down. I will try reading it again; I feel like the only reader in the world who hasn’t blown through the series yet! Everyone whose read the books seems to adore them; hopefully, my next try will be successful!

The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater – I have yet to read a Maggie Stiefvater book! Eek! I’m dying to read them all though! She has a few series that I need to begin. You’d think I’d be moving her books up my TBR list, because, hey, we share a name!

The Winner’s Trilogy by Marie Rutkoski – I’m really excited to get through this trilogy – I only hear and see excellent reviews, so far! I’m so silly that I bought the second book, The Winner’s Crime, first, as I didn’t realize it was part of a trilogy! So, naturally, I had to get The Winner’s Curse before even thinking about starting Rutkoski’s trilogy!

Air Awakens by Elise Kova – I’ve been busting a gut to start Kova’s Air Awakens series forever! I feel like I’ve been putting off starting it, well, other books just get in the way and I’m a total mood reader. I’m really looking forward to reading this series on Kindle Unlimited! Plus, the covers are breathtaking!

Love, Maggie


  1. You really do need to get on the Throne of Glass series! I personally wasn’t a fan of the first book, but the books just keep getting better as the series goes on!
    I’ve never heard of the Air Awakens series, but I just added it to my TBR because it looked cool!

    • Maggie

      Awesome! I’ll be prepared to not be blown away by the first Throne of Glass book, but I’ll keep going through the series! I’ve GOT to start Air Awakens soon – I hear great things about it and I LOVE the covers! 😀

  2. Jo

    So many of my favourite series on here! The Shades of Magic, Throne of Glass, Raven Cycle and Rebel of The Sands books are all so good. The others I haven’t read, but most are on my TBR.

      Hi, Jo! Thanks for stopping by! 😀 Yes, I’m so anxious to get to all of these series! So glad to hear you love the ones you’ve read! 😀

  3. I haven’t read Throne of Glass series yet either. I just finished Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses series and absolutely adored it! I’m so behind in catching up and starting series though. I loved the Six of Crows duology but haven’t read the Shadow and Bone trilogy; I’m looking forward to reading them soon! I, also, hear so many amazing things about the series by Victoria Schwab. I haven’t been able to pick those up yet though I definitely want to give them a try. Fantastic list! Happy reading! Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday!

      Thanks so much, Jeanna! 😀 Oh, the Shadow and Bone trilogy is SO good! I’m so excited to get to Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom – I only hear wonderful things! I read A Court of Thorns and Roses finally earlier in the year; I need to get through the next two books soon! Schwab is an amazing author – I adored Vicious!!!! 😀

  4. I will say that I tried A Darker Shade of Magic a while back– and while I made it through the book, it was not what I was expecting and I doubt I’ll ever pick up the sequel! I’m surprised everyone loves it– for sure it wasn’t a bad book, it was just alright.

    • Maggie

      Yay! I don’t feel so silly now! LOL! I just couldn’t get into the first book at all! I don’t know if it just starts slow or what, but I couldn’t do it! It just may not suit my taste, but I want to try it one more time! 😀

    • Maggie

      I am super excited to get to Elise Kova’s series – I LOVE the covers and I’m a sucker for a pretty cover! 😀
