Top Ten Tuesday: I Can’t Believe I Haven’t Started These YA Series Yet…

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish (click the link to visit them) who pick a different topic each week.

The topic for this week is: Top Ten Books I can’t believe I haven’t read from X Genre…

I’m almost as bad at starting series than I am at finishing them. But the following books are ones that I do fully intend on starting…at some point…


1. The Giver Quartet ~ Lois Lowry: I’ll be honest, I hadn’t even heard of this series before the movie came out and I can’t believe how long ago it was released. I’m very intrigued for that reason alone, so I’ve avoided the film thus far.

2. The Grisha ~ Leigh Bardugo: I’ve heard so many good things about this series and people have told me I’d love it.

3. Splintered ~ A.G Howard: I’ve enjoyed some re-imaginings of Wonderland before, and this one sounds great. Plus, the covers are awesome.

4. Percy Jackson ~ Rick Riordan: I love Greek mythology so I’m pretty sure I’ll love these books.

5. Matched ~ Ally Condie: I got the first book in this series from the YALC book swap last year, but I just haven’t got round to it yet.


6. Young Elites ~ Marie Lu: I haven’t read any Marie Lu yet and this series sounds full of action.

7. The Magisterium ~ Cassandra Clare and Holly Black: I’m intrigued by this collaboration!

8. Snow Like Ashes ~ Sarah Raasch: The cover! That is enough of a reason to want this series.

9. The Children of Camelot ~ Donna Hosie: I love, love, love Arthurian lit, so a YA series based on that = slobber.

10. Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins: I’ve wanted this since it was released. Everything about it just screams awesome.

  1. I’ve only read Percy Jackson off this list and let me tell you. Take a week off and you’ll get through ALL of those books in a matter of days! They’re quick, funny and adventurous and definitely improve over the course of the five books =]

  2. You’ll love Percy Jackson! The books are hilarious, and the stories are amazing. And the Greek mythology just makes it even better. 😀 And now I really want to read The Children of Camelot!! It sounds awesome.

  3. It’s been so many years since I read The Giver. I should probably read it again and then think about continuing the series. (I don’t think I realized it was a series at the time.) Someday, I’d like to read the rest of the Percy Jackson books (I read the 1st one, but that’s it.) Good luck with your list!

  4. Ahh Shadow and Bone. I have a lot of love for that series! Read it! 😀 I’m looking forward to reading The Giver. Hopefully soon!

  5. I still need to re-read the first few books in the Giver world and raed the final book. Haven’t read them in YEARS. Love Shadow and Bone! Still need to read Splintered. I was waiting for all 3 to be out! Kat had Lightning Thief on her list today, too! AND she keeps yelling at me to read YOUNG ELITES. Good choices!
