Welcome back to my latest Top Ten Tuesday post. This week we were tasked with talking about all the series we’ve been meaning to start.
Honestly, I feel like series are a much larger thing in YA and Fantasy than they are in the genres I read. Sure, there are a whole crap ton of Police Procedural series, but if any of you know me by now, you know those aren’t really my thing!
I have created a list full of series, trilogies and duologies that I’d be interested in reading, but it was a struggle! Some I have already started, others are totally new to me. This is in no particular order!
I’ve been really interested in reading the You duology by Caroline Kepnes. I’ve seen and heard several people say it’s very good. I haven’t read either of the books yet, but I know a lot of people really love the first, even if they haven’t read the second.
I’ve actually read the first in the Fabian Risk series by Stefan Ahnhem. This is a police procedural series but I really got into the first one. I like that it’s a Scandinavian series, with all the gloomy, chilly atmosphere. They’re are always published in Swedish first, so you have to wait a little while for it to come out in English. There are only 3 books in the series so far but I’m sure there will be more!
I’m ashamed to have not read the Hannibal Lector series by Thomas Harris yet! I really want to, I loved the movie adaptation and the TV show. These kinds of books are right up my street!
I have been umming and arring over The Three duology by Sarah Lotz for a while now, but since reading her latest book (The White Road) I’m so much more interested in reading her other work if it’s all as good as that one!
The Passage trilogy by Justin Cronin is definitely an intimidating one but I would like to give it a try. I’m always seeing the first book in charity shops, and you can always see someone has stopped it part way through because the spine is only broken part of the way through it 😂
I actually have both of these books on my physical shelf already. This is the Munch and Krüger series by Samuel Bjork, that’s reasonably new. My dad has read both books and enjoyed them, although he had a couple of issues with them, but details, details…
I really want to get into the Poirot series by Agatha Christie. I love the TV show! I love just catching it on randomly and watching it. This series is a mile long, these are just the first 5…
This is another series I’ve started, it’s also another police procedural. I loved the first in the DS Manon series by Susie Steiner, I have the second one on my NG shelf waiting to be read, I hope it’s just as good and if it is, I will definitely continue with this series!
I bought the first book in The Light duology by Aleatha Romig because I really liked the synopsis, so I’m hoping it’s good and I can move on to the second one! I haven’t read many series, trilogies or duologies, so if I can get one under my belt, that would be good!
Last but not least, I’d love to read the Millennium series by Stieg Larsson (and later by David Lagercrantz), but again, it’s a very daunting looking series. They’re so well loved in the book world though, so I shouldn’t be too worried.
So there we have it! Those are some series / trilogies / duologies I’d like to read.
Have you read any these? What did you think of them?
