TTT - Series I Need to Start/Finish


This top 10 weekly meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and can be found HERE.  Each week they focus on lists which cover various topics related to books and reading. This week is a freebie choice so I am sharing 10 series I need to start/finish.









 The Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne.  Chuckles has raved about this series and Oberon the dog and she is sure I'll love it as well.  I trust her judgement so I WILL start it in 2017.

A Wishcraft Mystery Series by Heather Blake.  I've read the first 3 books but I'm still 4 behind!

The Splintered Series from A.G. Howard.  I own these three books and have yet to start.  I've seen mixed reviews but I'll give it a go.  This is my favorite cover from the series - book 2.

Chet and Bernie Mysteries from Spencer Quinn.  I've read a short story from this series and am pretty sure I will love this dog and detective duo who communicate with each other.

War With No Name series by Robert Repino.  This is relatively new.  The second book comes out in May with only the first book and a novella out now.  Need to get cracking as I don't know how long it's planned.

Witchlands by Susan Dennard.  I see from Goodreads there are at last 4 books planned and since I own the first two, there's no excuse not to start.

The Conqueror's Saga by Kiersten White.  The second book comes out in June so I have plenty of time to get the first one finally read.

Ryder Creed series by Alex Kava.  I'm really excited to get this series started, and hopefully caught up on this year.

Wayfarers by Becky Chambers.  I've heard only good things about this series and since I see there is already a third book planned, I better get reading.

A Charmed Pie Shoppe Mystery series by Ellery Adams.  Stormi recommended this to me and I immediately added the first one to my Kindle so I have no excuse not to start.

So, have you read any of these or are any of  these books you need to read as well???

    1. I still need to pick up A Closed and Common Orbit, but I do hope to get to them both this year. I just grabbed Windwitch so I have no excuse not to read them either - other than there are too many books and too little time.

  2. Yes to Oberon! I really hope you love the series Barb!

  3. Yes, you must start the Wayfarers. I loved Small Angry Planet so much.

    I will go against the grain on Iron Druid, though I only read the first. I see the appeal but though only a bit old it is already dating itself; Oberon making ten year old South Park references didn't really endear him to me.

    1. I've only heard good things about Small Angry Planet so I can't imagine not liking it. Seeing as how I'm dog crazy, I figure I'll find Oberon entertaining which will probably keep the series going for me.

  4. I really want to read Becky Chamber's series as well, but I didn't realize there was a third book planned. Better figure out how to squeeze that series in soon!

  7. Awesome list! I feel like i've heard a lot of good things about And I Darken, and it seems like something i'd like. Hopefully we can both start/finish all of the series on our lists.

  8. Haha I'm trying to finish up series this year, Barb. I'm up to ~150 series I'm behind in. 0_0 However, I want to start Dennard's series, Howard's series, and White's series too! Far too many books, far too little time...

  9. Omg I can't wait for Now I Rise!! I'm looking forward to that one so much. I haven't read any of the other ones on your list, but I do want to read some of them. I need to finish more series this year myself. I'm always behind! :P

    1. It's hard not to be behind when there are so many good books being released every month.

  10. I want to start the Iron Druid series too, it's been on my list for a long time...lol. I also want to try the Ryder Creed series! Hope you like Pies and Prejudice! :)

    1. We might have to do a "One Book Two Blogger" read for an older title sometime this year. It might be a fun change of pace :)

  11. Chuckles's review of Hounded also made me interested in that one. And Greg made me interested in Small Angry Planet. So I'm considering those series as well. I would also like to try Splintered, but that's probably mostly because of the covers lol.

    1. Yea those covers pretty much seal the deal huh?

  12. I am right there with you! I really need to read the Truthwitch series. I've seen so many great reviews for it. Nice idea for a top ten!

  13. I really need to read And I Darken. I have an ARC that I haven't read so I feel a bit guilty about it. Truthwitch is also on my TBR. Great list!

    1. I have an ARC of that one too. I'm surprised I haven't read it by now. I used to be obsessed with Dracula type tales but kind of got away from them the past few years.

  14. I could probably fill a list like this with UF series alone. So many new ones spring up each year, while the long running ones still continue - and I just find myself falling more and more behind :)

  18. I'm planning to read "The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet" soon and I'm so excited! And the Chet and Bernie mysteries are always on my series-to-continue lists and it never seems to happen! I read and enjoyed the first book years ago now and I really would like to read more. I'm pretty sure you'll like it too -- it's told from the dog's perspective!

    1. I read a Chet and Bernie short story one and really liked it, although I could tell I'd missed a few things by not reading the other books in the series.

  19. the Iron Druid series is aMAZING. AMAZING. And Oberon is as beloved as the main character. AND, you might want to check out Oberon's Twitter/Facebook, because yes he has one!
