Top Ten Tuesday — Series I Haven’t Finished

25 Sep

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers’ answers. Everyone is welcome to join.  If you can’t come up with ten, don’t worry about it—post as many as you can!

I’ve really worked at finishing unfinished series I have lying around, so this weel’s list is going to be shorter than 10.

1. Rick Riordan’s Heroes of Olympus —  The boys and I were in the middle of reading Neptune’s Son when they went back to Indiana.  So I will have to wait until Thanksgiving and Christmas to get back to this one.  I may not have the will power and may just finish reading it before then…

2. Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander — I read Outlander two (three?) years ago at the urging of a friend.  I loved it!  But somehow I never continued reading the series.  I’ve had them on my reading challenge list for the past two years without success.  I really really really need to read these.

3. Lev Grossman’s The Magicians — I finally picked up The Magicians this year after J’s constant bugging.  Loved it!  Couldn’t wait to read the sequel.  And yet it sits unread on my iPad.

Comic series

4. Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman — I’m six volumes in.  I will be finishing these next year for my potential Neil Gaiman reading challenge.

5. Bill Willingham’s Fables — Waiting for the new volumes to be out and at the library.

6. Garth Ennis’ the Boys — Awaiting the arrival of the last volume of this series.

7. Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead — Four books in, I really should finish these.  I’m sure they will be on my first reads for 2013 and my next year’s graphic novel reading challenge.
