Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
This week's topic is: FREEBIE! Top Ten Finished Series I Need to START!
*Mostly inspired by last week's topic! There are finished series in my TBR pile that I still need to START! It's sad really...;)
1. ANYA KALINCZYK duology by Laura Bickle--I've had these two since 2010...I remember that because I got them both at my first RT!
2. ASHES duology by Melissa Walker--was really intrigued with this one! A ghost MC is always a story that catches my eye. And yet, I still must start them!
3. JULIET IMMORTAL duology by Stacey Jay--after reading Princess of Thorns and loving it, and having bought Of Beast & Beauty but needing to read it, I thought, what the heck?! Let's add the first duology of hers to the mix because I heard good things!
4. RUBY RED trilogy by Kerstin Gier--so this was one of the very first books I've ever won during my blogging years! I thought it sounded awesome! Time traveling is always something awesome to read! And yet, I still haven't cracked this puppy open!
5. SPELLCASTER trilogy by Claudia Gray--after pretty much loving ATPOY, I was happy to try this one in the meantime. It was another read I picked up at RT, because who says no to free books? And yet, I still haven't read it. It does sound like one I will enjoy! I've heard mixed things about her Evernight series, so I feel hesitant to start that one!
6. THE TAKING trilogy by Melissa West--I heard more good things about this series, so again, I pick up the first book. Then Book Outlet had book 2 cheap, so I picked that one up sometime ago too. I still haven't bought book 3, but I still need to start the trilogy!
7. THE FARM trilogy by Emily McKay--another series I picked up from Book Outlet. I haven't started it yet, nor have I bought book 3. But 2/3 ain't bad. Needing to read 3/3, kinda bad!
8. THE MADMAN'S DAUGHTER trilogy by Megan Shepherd--another trilogy I recently picked up because one of my blogging friends told me it was awesome! So I bought the first book, then found the second at one of those huge book sales! Will need to buy book 3 once I get around to reading them!
9. THE NIKKI STYX series by Terri Garey--a series that I thought sounded fun and creepy. And reviews were good! So naturally, when Borders was closing (a moment of silence...and tears!!!) I bought all 4 books! Might have taken going to 2 stores, but I got them all! And all remain unread...sigh...
10. NIGHTWORLD series by L.J. Smith--yet another series I need to start. And I even bought the first 2 compilations at Borders as well. I found the 3rd one at TJMaxx first actually. And then promptly went to Borders. This actually might have been around the time I heard the dreadful news. The news that shattered my being and all that! I still tear up or get morose every time I pass one of their old locations. Worse is that one turned into an Aldi's and it's the closest one to us, so my mom shops there a lot. I practically wanted to boycott all the stores that took Borders' locations. Not that it's their fault or anything. Just the principal of the thing! Though it is a tough call saying it's finished since the final book has yet to really publish or republish. There's weird info surrounding that!
11. MYTHOS ACADEMY series by Jennifer Estep--another series I acquired through RTs! Yes, I gained nearly the ENTIRE series from going to multiple and consecutive RTs. The only book I am missing is the 5th one. Which reminds me, next time B&N send coupons, I need to buy that. Might as well have the entire series waiting!
12. VAMPIRE CHEF by Sarah Zettel--I call this "unknown" because 1, there are only 2 books, BUT I have yet to read them. So I don't know if it reads like a duology or if it was one of those series that just didn't make it. I got both of these books, again from my first RT in 2010 and was psyched, because FREE books! And I got the first from a party and then received the second for FREE when I met Sarah at the signing day event! And yet, I need to start them, but am a little scared because if it's another unfinished series, I definitely think there will be tears!!
