Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where we list our top tens!
I have way more than ten because series scare me sometimes, but let’s get to it!!!
I really enjoyed the Percy Jackson series and this is a continuation of this amazing world by Rick Riordan. It’s been on my TBR for months, but I still haven’t bought it yet…
Series are intimidating, OK?!
Practically every book blogger I’ve encountered have read these books and are huge fangirls of them. I own Throne of Glass, but it’s still sitting on my shelf, actively collecting dust.
So what’s with the reluctance?
Well, my sister read it and came away with a so-so feeling about an interesting plot, but heavily focused teenage romance and now I’ve become reluctant to read it with the fear that I find I absolutely hate it and then have to try and immerse myself in the blogosphere and its orgasmic hype for this series??? I just… can’t. I’m so scared, guys!!
Well, I enjoyed the Lily Collins movie for the sole reason of being a fan of the charming, lovely Lily Collins. The movie made me want to pick up the books, but I have since read mixed reviews and now I’m just not so sure if I’d end up enjoying them.
Everyone and their mom has been salivating over this duology. I can’t wait to get my hands on it, but I want to get the box set which is just slightly over 20 bucks on Amazon. But then when I buy the box set I am practically required to read two books back to back and I just don’t know if I’m ready for that type of commitment!!
This is a continuation of The Mortal Instruments universe and I’ve heard it’s loads better than the original. I’ve also heard mixed opinions on whether you should read TMI first or not. If I have to read TMI first then that’s just a crap ton of books, aka an overwhelming amount of time and money.
I remember I borrowed this from the library years ago (and I’m talking years. Like… high school years) but I could never be bothered to read it. My sister ended up reading it and enjoyed it and yet I. STILL. NEVER. READ. IT.
In summary, I suck.
I saw Divergent on TV a couple years back and by how much I enjoyed the film, I really wanted to pick up this series. Since then I’ve heard so many unpopular opinions about these books that, frankly, I’d feel I would be wasting my time if I picked these up.
I keep hearing how awesome this series is and everyone (aka the bloggers I follow) are always listing it as an all-time favorite series. But there are four books in the series and four books is just a lot, ok???
I actually hadn’t heard anything about this series until I bought it for my sister as a Christmas present this past holiday. Sounded really good, but I have yet to ask her what she thought of it… I am a lazy poop.
To sum up this post, how dare I call myself a fan of YA fantasy when I haven’t read these?!
You’re probably thinking…
I am the LITERAL worst.
Have you read any of these?
What are your opinions?
Which series have you been putting off?
By the way, I’m skipping next week’s TTT because I kind-of sort-of already did it in my Reading Goal Progress post and also I will be sharing a post very similar to next week’s topic SOON!
Talk to ya later!
