Top Ten Tuesday: newish series I want to start

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they post a new topic that the participants come up with a top ten list for.

This week is all about great series that started within the past 2 or so years that we haven't started yet but would love to curl up with

My top ten are in no particular order.

Kendare Blake - Antigoddess
I loved her Anna Dressed in Blood duology and I've always had a thing for Greek mythology and the deaths of gods. I'm sure Kendare gave this one her very own spin. And aren't the new covers pretty?

Josin L. McQuein - Arclight
I actually have the first one on my Kindle but haven't gotten to it yet. I wanted to take a pass on that series at first, but so many bloggers whose taste I trust loved it, so I'm going to give it a try.

Victoria Aveyard - Red Queen
I've got an ARC of that one from Edelweiss and I'm very curious about it! I'll read it closer to release. It's a bout a world where the color of your blood (and its powers) determines your social standing. Its planned to be a trilogy.

Romily Bernard - Find Me
Can't resist the smart hacker kids from the wrong side of the tracks. I just got the prequel and will hopefully get to the series soon.

Marie Rutkoski - The Winner's Curse
I want this one so badly, and now the next one is already almost out. It sounds so unique! I loved Rutkoski's writing style in The Shadow Society and I hope that will be true for this series as well.

Shannon Messenger - Let the Sky Fall
I've wanted this one for so long and thought I'd buy for sure once the paperback is out but it never happened. It sounds like something different. I haven't read about storms and air elementals much.

Amie Kaufmann & Megan Spooner - These Broken Stars
Spaceships. Abandoned planets. Survival. A romance where the characters can't stand each other at the beginning because their lives up to then have been so different. Also, the reviews have been amazing. Definitely buying this one once the paperback is out.

Kasie West - Pivot Point
Parallel worlds. A girl who can see the different outcomes of futures depending on her decisions... and pick the one she wants. Do you know how often I've wished I could do that?

Alex London - Proxy
This one is about a dystopian society and picks up on the figure of the 'whipping boy'. When the wealthy guy screws up, the less-wealthy proxy is beaten. But then stuff happens and the two sides of the spectrum have to work together...
P.S.: Me is not happy about the cover change...

Amy McCulloch - The Oathbreaker's Shadow
This one is about a world where you tie a knot for every promise you make. If you break an oath, it bursts into flames and scars you as an oathbreaker for life. You're shunned and have to live out in the desert.The protagonist has always had one knot tied around his wrist, but no one knows what promise it represents. So when he unwittingly breaks it, it's run or die.
Doesn't this just sound like such an awesome concept?! I need this one in my life!

It was actually kinda hard to come up with a ton ten for this topic. So many series I want to start reading are older than from the last two years, and there are a lot where I've already read the first book and just never got around to continuing it. Have you read any of the series I've featured? Do they sound up your alley? Also, please link me up to your own post :)


  1. I HIGHLY recommend the Pivot Point series, it is one of my all time favorites. I'm looking forward to the Red Queen, and a few others on your list as well.

  2. Such a great list! I really need to get to the new Kendare Blake series and I just snagged an early copy of Red Queen (can't wait!). Arclight was fabulous but I haven't yet read Meridian. I need to do that soon.

  3. Oh we have a lot in common, I still need to read Red Queen, Arclight, Antigoddess, The Winner's Curse AND The Broken Stars! I know Red Queen isn't out but I got an arc and it's tormenting me LOL There simply is not enough time in the day to read all the books we need to catch up on....it bums me out sometimes. I wish we didn't have to sleep and could just be productive during those times reading ALL THE BOOKS.

    1. You name it! Reading while asleep! I have more than a thousand books marked as 'to read' on GR and I can only do like 150 a year. And the list keeps growing.
      I hope we can both get to our Red Queen ARCS soon :)

  4. I just added Red Queen to my Goodreads TBR pile today! I'm seeing a lot of The Winner's Curse too. I have it at home, but I just haven't read it yet! It's got lots of good reviews!

    Happy reading!

  5. I haven't read any of these yet but am sooooo excited for all of them! All are on my TBR list, and I think I'll go with Red Queen first as soon as I get it. Sounds so good!
    Happy reading!

  6. I LOVED These Broken Stars!!!!! Eeeep! :) I just got Let the Sky Fall from the library. I'm hoping it's good! I read Find Me and it was a pretty neat read. I'm not sure if I'll continue the series though.

  7. Red Queen is on my list this week too! The Winner's Curse is one I need to start too, and then These Broken Stars was so good. But seriously Pivot Point has been one of my favorite books that I've read this year. I really hope I get the 2nd in the series soon!

  8. Great picks. There are quite a few of these series that I really want to read myself - Red Queen and Proxy especially, they look so good. I LOVED The Winner's Curse, I am so desperate to read the sequel. I hope you can get to some of these soon :) TTT.

  9. The Oathbreaker's Shadow looks so good! I can't believe I had never heard of that one before! The Winner's Curse and These Broken Stars were both really good. I hope you enjoy them! I also need to start Kendare's new series. it's on my iPod; I just need to make time! Thanks for stopping by my Top Ten!

    Amber R. @ Bibliophilia, Please

  10. Great picks! You'll love Red Queen it was awesome! Thanks so much for stopping by my TTT!

  11. These Broken Stars is so good! And I am dying to read Antigoddess as well, her Anna books were so amazing. Great list!
