I try to read as many as possible, but once I read the first book in the series, I need to move on to the next one and the other series just sit waiting impatiently on my nightstand. There just isn't enough time to get to all of them. But I need to get moving on some of these series, because my students get mad when I don't. Really. Really really mad.
Top Ten Series I Would Like to Start But Haven't Yet
1. The Lord of the Rings, by JRR Tolkien
2. Gone, by Michael Grant
3. The Selection Trilogy, by Kiera Cass
4. Guys Read, by Jon Scieszka
5. The Eva Nine Trilogy, by Tony DiTerrlizi
6. The Sandman, by Neil Gaiman
7. Legend Series, by Marie Lu
A few months ago, I had to decide to read either Graceling or Legend. I chose Graceling. Hence, the Legend series is still waiting on the shelf for me to begin.
8. Heroes of Olympus, by Rick Riordan
I only just finished Percy Jackson and the Olympians this past year, so I need to give myself a breather before I dive into this series. But everytime I see the books, I get the urge to grab one.
9. Time Quintet, by Madeline L'engle
Okay I have, of course, read A Wrinkle in Time. But here's a confession that could get me blacklisted: I've never read the rest of the series. I know, I know. But if it counts, I've read and loved Rebecca Stead's When You Reach Me. It doesn't count? *Hangs head in shame*
10. Redwall, by Brian Jacques
Alright, this exercise has taught me that I need to remove myself from Netflix (currently watching Cheers for the first time and I am in love) and just read 24/7.
More to-be-read series over at the Broke and the Bookish!
