Top Ten Tuesday: series / trilogies / duologies I’d be interested in reading

TOP TEN TUESDAY - SERIES I WANT TO READ.png

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!

 

TTT IN POST BANNERS - hannibal.png

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!

 

TTT IN POST BANNERS - THREE.png

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!

 

TTT IN POST BANNERS - PASSAGE.png

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 😂

 

TTT IN POST BANNERS - BJORK.png

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…

 

TTT IN POST BANNERS - CHRISTIE.png

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…

 

TTT IN POST BANNERS - STEINER.png

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!

 

TTT IN POST BANNERS - ROMIG.png

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!

 

TTT IN POST BANNERS - THE GIRL WHO....png

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?

      1. It entirely switches casts partway through the novel, which was really hard for me to keep reading after that, especially since it’s such a large book, and I’d invested so much time into it. I’m not a huge fan of that to be entirely honest.

  1. The only ones I can vouch for here are the Agatha Christie books and the Millennium series, both are awesome. Christie’s are your classic Who Done It, while Larsson builds some wonderful characters and plots in his books. I didn’t read the last two, but I’ve read the original 3

  2. Okay, so, two things. First, I think you’d like YOU! Try it out! Secondly, as much as I loved Into The Light…. there’s a bit of a romance and it was the part that I enjoyed less haha

  3. Every time I look at one of your posts it’s always a fresh breath of air and I always read about books I’ve never heard of before! I also want to read the Poirot series in its entirety. I plan on reading Murder on the Orient Express soon. If I like that one, as I’m sure I will, I’ll start at the beginning 😛

    1. My friend LOVED the first Bjork too, so I’m excited to read it. My dad only really had problems to do with the second one.

      I really like Manon in Missing, Presumed which is probably why I liked it so much. I wasn’t really a huge fan of the plot line lol

      The Hannibal series is a must for any crime lovers!

  4. I read the You duology and actuallyt enjoyed more the second book (unlike almost everyone!). During the first one I was in some kind of slump and I didn’t completely connect with the character, but enough that I wanted to hear more from him…hihihi
    I am reading the Milennium trilogy soon!! But thwe original, I don’t care for the new ones! I am also really curious about Agatha Christie! My mother is such a fan, she has a ton of vintages of her! I call them vintage because they are old as hell!!haha

    1. I’ve seen a couple of people say they prefer the second one! I’m definitely going to look into them as soon as I can, I just have soooo many books to read right now!! lol
      I love the look of vintage Christie

  5. That’s too funny about The Passage paperbacks, ha ha. I have the first two of that trilogy as audiobooks. I joined some audiobook email newsletter (that I have since unsubscribed from) and got my choice of two Audible books for $10.00. I figured even if I had to pay full price for the last one it Is still a bargain split between three books. 🙂
