Top Ten Tuesday is a meme by The Broke And The Bookish, and will be a feature on Emma, the Bibliophile-Librarian. In Top Ten Tuesday I make lists of books, because I love books and I love lists. Here at the Bibliophile-Librarian, I cannot guarantee that it will always be posted on a Tuesday, but I will try.
Since I have so many series that I have not finished, I will list the ten that I would most like to finish, either out of interest or because I own it.
- Percy Jackson and the Olympians, by Rick Riordan: This series is actually a bit of a project of mine. Although I liked The Lightning Thief when I read it in 2010, I didn’t love it at the time. I am obsessed with the new paperback reprints for this series, and I think I am in a better mindset to appreciate this series now.
- The Name of the Blade, by Zoë Marriott: I own the first two books with beautiful UK covers, and enjoyed the first book, The Night Itself, but I still have to read the second book. Book 3 just came out this past June, but I haven’t purchased it yet.
- Death Note, by Tsugumi Ohba & Takeshi Obata: I own the gorgeous 2-in-1 Black Editions of this entire series, but I have only read the first four volumes.
- Canterwood Crest, by Jessica Burkhart: I absolutely adore this charming middle grade series about horseback riding boarding school. The 11-year-old in me is desperate to go to the elite Canterwood Crest Academy. Sadly, now that I have moved, I don’t have access to these books from the library, but I was able to get book four and five at a bargain book store a couple of weekends ago, so I can continue Sasha’s adventures!
- Wicked Lovely, by Melissa Marr: I own three of the five books, and I can easily get the others from the library, so why haven’t I finished this fae, female-positive YA series?
- The Ascendance Trilogy, by Jennifer A. Nielsen: I have read the first two books, which I gave five and four stars, but have yet to complete Jaran’s story in The Shadow Throne.
- Spiritwalker trilogy, by Kate Elliott: I own this trilogy and I have read the first book, but for whatever reason have not finished the series.
- Wandering Son, by Shimura Takako: This manga series about two transgendered middle schoolers is finished publication in Japan, but the English translations are still in the process of being printed. I have read the first three volumes, and own the first eight or nine volumes.
- Vampire Academy, by Richelle Mead: I started reading this series when I worked at the public library, because I love the fun new paperback covers. It has been finished since 2009, and I only have two books left to go. The spin-off series, Bloodlines, reached its conclusion this year, which is further incentive to finish Vampire Academy.
- The Sandman, by Neil Gaimain: I consider myself a pretty big Neil Gaiman fan, but I have only read the first volume of his Sandman graphic novel.
