Top Ten Tuesday - Series I Keep Meaning to Start...But Haven't

It could be really super easy to continue repeating my favorite books/authors...so here is a list with a little different variety. I inevitably missed some books. Please know it was not intentional. Thanks to the wonderful people at The Broke and the Bookish for hosting Top Ten Tuesday. Click on the IMAGE to go to the author's website. The links for Amazon and Goodreads are included below the cover photo for each series beginning. And now...in no particular order...Series that I wish there were more hours in the day for...

 What series is at the top of your "I really need to get to that someday" list?

Walker Family
By Melissa Tagg

It all starts with Three Little Words. A FREE novella. Three little words that I have yet to read. 


The Gifting Series
by K. E. Ganshert

This series has been calling my name since it came out. The first book, The Gifting, is available for FREE.

The Gifting by Katie Ganshert

Matched Trilogy
by Ally Condie

Young Adult is one of my favorite genres. This series has been on my list for a LOOOOOOOONG time...


The Kingkiller Chronicles
by Patrick Rothfuss

My Wendy (you can meet her in her guest post HERE) recommended this series to me. My husband has read it (or what is available of it) TWICE. And I haven't even cracked the pages yet. It also doesn't help that I met the artist who created the maps. #BookBloggerFail


Hidden Masterpiece Books
by Kristy Cambron

If I could drop everything and read something...ANYTHING...I think I would end up here. Kristy is one of my favorite authors and I have been longing to read these book.


The Heart of San Francisco Series
by Julie Lessman

I met Julie last summer and won this whole series...and got it signed...They have been staring at me from their perch on the shelf...taunting me. *Sigh* someday....


Elite Guardians
by Lynette Eason

This series intrigues me SO MUCH! I now have book 4 sitting on my shelf (an advanced copy that I got for free through LibaryThing) but have to come back and start here...


by Scott Westerfeld

Ya...told you Young Adult is a favorite. I LOVED Scott's Leviathan series. I can't wait to get my hands on this one now.

Uglies (The Uglies Book 1) by [Westerfeld, Scott]

Belle Meade Plantation
by Tamera Alexander

After visiting the Belle Meade Plantation myself in Nashville last summer...I have been LONGING to read these books. To immerse myself in the world where I have actually set foot. Be still my nerd girl heart!


Michigan Brides
by Jody Hedlund

Jody is a forever favorite. I have read and/or own ALL of her books. I have been putting off some of them though, because....You can only read a book for the first time ONCE. 



  1. Melissa's series is fabulous (so sweet, cute and charming); Lynette's is fierce and intriguing; and The Gifting is a great start to Katie's first YA series! This reminds me: I need to circle back to this series and read the rest. :)

    1. Ahhh I need to jump on these soon!!!

  2. Oh,you have Kingkiller and Uglies on your list. I am a huge fan of Rothfuss and it's disappointing how slow he writes. Almost as bad as George R.R. Martin. Uglies was good considering the pre-Hunger Games phase. Going to check out the rest of the books from your list.

    1. Oh gosh I know! I really do love YA Dystopian type books. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Matched was a nice series, but unfortunately it follows a similar path to many YA novels about dystopia and forbidden love.

    1. Ah yes...First Person and Love Triangle...or Octagon...Sums up 98% of YA books I think lol!

  4. Great list! Melissa Tagg's Walker Family series is one of my favorites!

    1. Ooooh good to know! I used to think I didn't like contemporary...silly me.

  5. I like this list, I think I just added half of it to my TBR!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

    1. Eeeeep! YAY! Thank you! That makes me so happy!

  6. The Elite Guardians and the Gifting are both series I want to read. I've heard such great things about both of them.

  7. I just got The Butterfly and the Violin! I have been in a mood of books set during WW2 and that is all I have been reading lately. I Also need to start The Name of the Wind.
    My TTT.

    1. YAY! I have really been liking books set in WWI lately.


  8. Thanks for putting me on the list, Rach, and I hope you enjoy Heart of San Fran when you read it. I actually did a LOT of fun research on that book, so I think you'll love San Fran in the early 1900s!


    1. YAY!!!!! LOVE history and your books....so I KNOW I will enjoy it!

  9. Great list! I haven't read any of these yet, but I'll for sure be adding them to my TBR pile.

    1. The ever growing TBR right? Lol! I LOVE YOUR BLOG TITLE!!!!

  10. Wow, I actually read the entire Hidden Masterpiece books and Heart of San Franscisco series. Such good books! Now I'm hooked on the Elite Guardians series....
    Belle Meade Plantation series is on my list, too!

    1. Ahhh! Stop torturing me! I really can't wait to start them.

  11. Tamera, Jody and Lynette! I've read most of them . Now to finish off these series. I have sooo much on my TBR pile!

    1. The struggle is real! I have read a lot of Jody's books and a few of Julie's...The hard part is catching up with previously released books.

  12. Oops forgot Julie. Definitely already on the list!

  13. I really need to read some of these! :-)

  14. The cover designs are nice.

  15. Uglies made my list too---I've been thinking for a long time about Matched. That one seems like it would be right up my alley.

  16. To get rid of your to-read-list is an uphill battle. In fact, it's impossible. For every book I finish, I end up adding 10 more that I want to read. I actually glad it will never end, though, because it would be a sad, sad day when it does.

    Anyways, I've also been meaning to read the Walker series and the Gifting series. I've also been curious about the Elite Guardian series. Maybe, I'll put one of these series on my summer to-read-list (at least, one that is).

  17. I have Matched but am honestly not sure if I'm actually interested in reading it.....(I got it free in a book swap). I really enjoyed the first Uglies book, but didn't find the rest of the series as engrossing.

  18. The Gifting Series is excellent! Do not delay!!!

  19. I LOVED THE MATCHED SERIES! I also really enjoyed the 2 books I have read of the Walker Family Series. If you liked the Walker Family series, you should check out the Porter Family series by Becky Wade. :)

  20. I loved the HIDDEN MASTERPIECE! I need to catch up on back reading both Julie Lessman and Jody Hedlund.

    Here are some of the series I want to read:
    Series to read:
    Discarded Heroes by Ronie Kendig
    Penned in Time by Pepper Basham (Plan to read this Summer)
    Christiansen Family by Susan May Warren
    The Gifting Series by Katie Ganshert
    Chicory Inn by Deborah Raney
    Logan Point by Patricia Bradley
    Texas Gold by Kellie Coates Gilbert
