| 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:
| 1. |
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.
| 2. |
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!
| 3. |
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.
| 4. |
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!
| 5. |
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!
| 6. |
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!
| 7. |
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.
| 8. |
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.
| 9. |
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.
| 10. |
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.
