Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten… Complete Series I Still Haven’t Finished


Top Ten TuesdayWelcome to Top Ten Tuesday – a weekly feature hosted by those lovely bookworms over at The Broke and the Bookish. Expect a new top ten list every week!


| Top Ten… Complete Series I Still Haven’t Finished |

This week’s Top Ten focuses on finished series I still haven’t completed. These series are the ones I am really enjoying and should really really have finished by now… but I haven’t! As usual, there’s always too much to read and too little time! For shame! Looking through my bookshelves I realise I have far too many of these so perhaps I’ll make a new monthly goal to finish a few! For this week’s Top Ten I’ve stuck to fantasy (and there are definitely more in other genres) which leads me to one conclusion – I better get reading! In no particular order, here is the rundown:

Traitor Spy Trilogy

by Trudi Canavan

I’ve loved every book Trudi Canavan has written (and I’ve read) but The Traitor Queen is still sitting on my book/floorshelf waiting to be devoured! And then there’s Thief’s Magic! Oh dear… Trudi Canavan is an author I’d recommend in a heartbeat so I feel quite ashamed that I’ve still not finished this series.heart

The Belgariad

by David Eddings

I’m rather a latecomer to the work of David Eddings having only read the first three books in The Belgariad this year. As soon as I started them I knew I would have loved the work of Eddings when I was younger but even as an adult I was verily entertained. I will be reading the final two as soon as possible… here’s hoping my supermarket starts selling them off for £1 again!heart

The Twilight Reign

by Tom Lloyd

The Stormcaller was lost on my bookshelf for many a year until it was dusted off the other month. This was a great read which I wish I’d remembered sooner. I cannot wait to read the rest of this series.heart

The Farseer Trilogy

by Robin Hobb

Ah Robin Hobb, master (or mistress, if you so wish) of everything. I really need to finish this trilogy because everything Hobb writes is utter and complete perfection. Must read as soon as possible!heart

The Broken Empire Trilogy

by Mark Lawrence

Amazingly awesome start and then… I forgot! King of Thorns is sitting in sight and I just keep forgetting to pick it up next. For shame indeed! I will get round to it. I will!heart

The Old Kingdom/Abhorsen Series

by Garth Nix

Having read the first three in the series quite some time ago (along with the short stories) I thought it was a series complete! But no! Clariel appeared last year and has promptly been added to my to-read list. Sneaky Mr. Nix, very sneaky!heart

The Earthsea Cycle

by Ursula K. Le Guin

Le Guin is another author who I arrived at late. This year I’ve read A Wizard of Earthsea and The Tombs of Atuan and will endeavour to read the rest of The Earthsea Cycle in due course! I’m almost certain I own them all too.heart

The Inheritance Cycle

by Christopher Paolini

I read Eragon when it first came out but cannot for the life of me remember whether I read Eldest too. In any case, I barely remember what happens so Eldest will be read next… just in case… and hopefully I won’t leave it another ten years before remembering… again.heart

The Magicians Trilogy

by Lev Grossman

I didn’t even realise this was a trilogy until this year! Completely forgot about it! I enjoyed The Magicians and can’t even remember hating Quentin despite his repeated appearance on last week’s top ten. I shall add the next two to my shopping list immediately.heart

The Wheel of Time

by Robert Jordan [ & Brandon Sanderson]

So so SO many books! Lord of Chaos awaits my attention and from there I still have an enormous chunk to go. The first five are brilliant. Fingers crossed for the rest.

    1. I definitely want to pick up The Magicians but I’m more unsure of The Inheritance Cycle.. maybe one day… if there’s time… and I don’t have piles and piles of awesome books to read… !

  1. I haven’t actually read any of these, but I keep seeing The Magicians everywhere and feel like maybe I should! And I really wanted say, even though it has nothing to do with the TTT topic lol, that I love how you put the images of all the books and faded out the ones you haven’t read yet. It makes for a very pretty post!

    1. Thank you! 😀 I definitely enjoyed the first in the trilogy and (I don’t think) the protagonist annoyed me as much as he did other readers.. although it’s been such a long while I only remember the good bits!

  2. I’ve actually only read Clariel from The Old Kingdom series! As it is a prequel I was advised I could read it before the rest. Honestly though, I didn’t love it. Perhaps I should have saved it. I do have Sabriel on my shelves though and will definitely still be reading it. Love the way you’ve done your post! Happy reading. x

    1. Thank you! I really enjoyed the trilogy but it’s been such a long time since I read them that it’s probably a good job Clariel’s a prequel! I’ll give it a read and see how it stacks up! 😛 Hope you enjoy Sabriel! I think they’re well worth a read.

  3. Broken Empire trilogy was an instant favorite for me as soon as I finished it. I vote you finish that one first 🙂

    I have Farseer trilogy on my TBR for later this year – right after Mistborn – and except for The Beligariad and The Old Kingdom/Abhorsen Series, I want to read everyone of these series! Especially The Wheel of time! And I read Eragon back when it came out too (or whenever I was 12), and haven’t read on past it yet either.

    1. Yes I agree! Damn you distracting other books! Will make it a goal to read at least King of Thorns this month. I don’t think anyone could regret reading the Farseer trilogy or Mistborn. I really hope you enjoy them! 😀

  4. SO many books on here that either I really want to read – or I haven’t ever heard of and don’t know why because they sound SO me! I have to say that the Eragon books ended up not doing much for me (I didn’t dislike them). Oh oh oh did you know Nix is writing more books for the Abhorsen series? His next one is going to be a Lirael/Nick one PRAISE THE LORD FINALLY.

    1. I can’t even remember how I really felt about Eragon.. I just know that I thought I should read them but never did!

      Ooooh I didn’t know that! I’m definitely looking forward to that. I also love seeing how books translate from reading them as a teenager to reading them as an adult, so yes! Exciting! 😀
