Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where you design top ten lists which have a connection with books. This week is a freebie week. For this week, I have chosen to write about the top ten book series that I feel everyone has read except me. In no particular order, they are:
- Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling: As one of the most talked about childrens/ young adult series, Harry Potter has taken the world by storm. Whilst I have watched all of the movies, I have not yet read any of the books (Gasp!). They are definitely a high priority in my TBR pile for 2015.
- Heroes of Olympus Series by Rick Riordan: Rick Riordan novels have always appealed to me, so I'm not sure why I still haven't read them. Gods, demigods, mythology and heroes. Yet, here I am having not read a single one of his books.
- Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series by Rick Riordan: Again, I have no idea why I haven't read these books yet!
- The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer: Since the release of Cinder, there has been a lot of hype surrounding this series by book bloggers and vloggers. I've always been interested in fairy tales, but I think the fact that the books have cyborgs has just never appealed to me. Is this a series that I should definitely consider?
- Across the Universe Series by Beth Revis: Space and I have never done well together. Just the thought that there is so much yet to be discovered makes me feel so tiny. I mean, there could be creatures on planets in other galaxies that know we are here but we have never found them. It just freaks me out!
- The Maze Runner Series by James Dashner: I loved the movie adaptation of The Maze Runner! After leaving the cinemas, I really wanted to read the novel. But, I always do some research about each book that I want to read to find out what other people think. Whilst a lot of people have read this series, I don't feel like everyone enjoyed it as much as I had hopes. I suppose it depends on the individual, but I don't know if I will ever get around to reading this series.
- Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas: The Throne of Glass series is high up on my TBR series for this year. The books sound fantastic, and I have heard so many good things about this them!
- Daughter of Smoke and Bone Series by Laini Taylor: I must admit, I don't know much about this series. Just that I haven't read it and a whole bunch of people have raved about it.
- The Raven Cycle Series by Maggie Stiefvater: I struggled to get through the Shiver series by Maggie Stiefvater. Whilst I have heard that these books are fantastic once you get into them, I'm still not convinced. Are these books really as good as people say?
- The Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout: Aliens. Space. We've already talked about this.
