Top Ten Series I'd Like to Start

I have so many! Narrowing this down to ten is hard, but here we go. A lot of these I have sitting waiting on my shelf, like rows of sweets calling me to come eat them...

The titles link to Goodreads so if there are any you haven't heard of you can see what they're all about!

1) The Skyscraper Throne series by Tom Pollock. Book One - The City's Son.

2) Daughter of Smoke and Bone series by Laini Taylor. Book One - Daughter of Smoke and Bone.

3) Gentleman Bastard series by Scott Lynch. Book One - The Lies of Locke Lamora.

4) Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas. Book One - Throne of Glass.

5) Seraphina series by Rachel Hartman. Book One - Seraphina.

6) Pantomime series? (I'm not actually sure what the series title is) by Laura Lam. Book One - Pantomime.

7) The Inheritance Trilogy by N K Jemisin. Book One - The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms.

8) Graceling Realm series by Kristin Cashore. Book One - Graceling.

9) Tales of the Kin series by Douglas Hulick. Book One - Among Thieves.

10) Glamourist Histories by Mary Robinette Kowal. Book One - Shades of Milk and Honey.

I'm almost afraid to go look at everyone else's lists... I have a feeling my To Be Read pile is about to erupt out of control! :-)


  1. I hope you enjoy Lynch's The Lies of Locke Lamora (haven't gotten around to the rest of the series but it was interesting and amusing and gritty) and Kowal's Shades of Milk and Honey (I finally got around to it recently--it has been sitting on my eReader for months--and it's just fantastic). My brother told me he enjoyed Seraphina so I hope to get around to it soon enough =)

  2. Wow, great list, Vicky! I've read Graceling, although it was years ago, I actually want to re-read it, so I can finish the trilogy :) Also, Seraphina was good & Throne of Glass was great :) As for the rest, they're all on my tbr, but I still haven't gotten around to them :) I can go on & on with a list like this :) I hope you'll enjoy all of these when you get around to reading them :)

  3. I forgot to put Graceling and The Inheritance trilogy on my list! Definitely books I want to read. I have a copy of Seraphina, but haven't read it yet. So many good books -- nice list!

  4. Throne of Glass is an amazing novel. I still need to read Seraphina, I've heard great things about that book. GReat list!

    My Top Ten

  5. There are a few on there that I hadn't heard of. A few on that list also needed to be on mine, I just didn't have the room!
