Series I've Been Meaning to Start

Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is Series I've Been Meaning to Start But Haven't. Now this is a topic I can get behind. I don't have to pretend there is any chance I'll be getting to any of these books in the near future. So here we go.

  1. Death at Chateau Bremont by M.L. Longworth - This is the first in the Verlaque and Bonnet Mystery Series. This is set in France. There should be more mysteries set in France.

  2. Still Life by Louise Penny - Okay, so I DO plan to read this one this month so my comment about no chance is null and void, here. I've heard how awesome this series is, and I get jealous when a new one comes out and I can't read it.

  3. Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal - I have heard this Glamourist Histories series described as Jane Austen with magic. I have also heard that it is fantastic!

  4. Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb - This is the first book in a fantasy series called the Farseer Trilogy. The trilogy is actually the first in a series of trilogies that all take place in the same world. BookTube is all atwitter about these books, so I can't wait til I can get my hands on them.

  5. Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho - The Sorcerer Royal series only has this one book in it right now, but more are promised. This one features some diversity and I've heard it is really worth the almost 400 pages.

  6. The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemison - This is a fantasy novel I know almost nothing about. The series is called The Broken Earth, and the author is that rare unicorn of black, female, fantasy writer. Color me interested.

  7. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss - This is the first in the Kingkiller Chronicles. And it's ginormous. Like almost 700 pages huge. And the second one is even bigger! This is going to take some guts to get into.

  8. My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferante - This first in the Neapolitan Novels is calling my name. And the author's identity adds more novelty. Elena Ferante is a pen name for someone writing in Italian. These books have been translated. Nobody knows who the author really is. Oh, some people have guessed, but it's not known for sure. Also, the books are supposed to be really good.

  9. Caraval by Stephanie Garber - This is a YA book that is billed for fans of The Night Circus. One of my dancers says this is her favorite book, so I definitely want to read it.

  10. Scythe by Neal Schusterman - So many people have said I need to read this, so I guess I need to read this. It sounds great. It's about an unwilling grim reaper. The series is called Arc of a Scythe.

So there are 10 series I've been meaning to start. Yay series! Do you have any series you've been eyeing for awhile?
