TTT - New(ish) Series I Want To Start

It's time to link up with the Broke and the Bookish again!

This week's topic is otherwise known as "Why do I keep forgetting to add things to my Goodreads TBR shelf?". Because yeah. This was kind of a struggle, even though I know there's a BUNCH of different series that I want to start reading. Well done, Past Kirsti. Well done...

1. The Young Elites - Marie Lu
I've only read one book by Marie Lu (so really, I should probably finish the Legend series before I start another one), but this series sounds pretty damned fabulous and I really want to read it.

2. Talon - Julie Kagawa
I got turned down for an ARC of this, and I'm still a little bitter about it. I mean, a YA about dragons? YES PLEASE.

3. Burn for Me - Ilona Andrews
Look, I'm kind of torn about this one. The blurb sounds...pretty damned awful, to be honest. But I've loved everything else I've read by Ilona Andrews, so I'm going to give it a go anyway and hope it's better than it sounds.

4. The Lies of Locke Lamora - Scott Lynch
I've heard great things about this one, and it sounds like a hell of a lot of fun.

5. The Grisha - Leigh Bardugo
I keep staring at this series longingly, but I keep forgetting to request it from the library, and I'm not sure I can justify $36 to buy the whole lot on my Kindle...

6. The Lotus War - Jay Kristoff
Another one that I need to request from the library, especially now that the reserves list is down to only one or two!

7. The Archived - Victoria Schwab
I've heard amazing things about this series, and part of the reason why I've not read it yet is that it's not available on the Amazon Australia website. Sigh.

8. Between - April Genevieve Tucholke
I've heard mixed things about Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, but I JUST NEED TO FIND OUT FOR MYSELF, DAMMIT. Plus, the cover font is gorgeous.

9. All Souls Trilogy - Deborah Harkness
I saw this at Dymocks yesterday and was very VERY tempted to buy the first book because I've heard fabulous things. But it was $25, so obviously that didn't happen.

10. Not a Drop to Drink - Mindy McGinnis
Another one that'll inevitably sit on my Amazon wishlist until I have more money to spend on books!

What's on your list? Have you read any of these? Which ones would you recommend??

    The first installment in the All Souls Trilogy was really good and so was the second one but the third one was kind of meh (my review is on my blog!). I'm definitely looking forward to reading The Young Elites and The Lies of Locke Lamora, though!

    Great list! :)

  2. I've heard good things about the Grisha series as well. A friend was squeeing about it when she read it. I, on the other hand, hardly know what it's about.

  3. Great list. So many of these are ones I am dying to read - Grisha, Archived and Talon especially. I read and LOVED Not a Drop to Drink, I highly recommend that. I hope you can get to some of these soon :) TTT.

  4. Awesome, I'll move it up the list and track it down! :)

  5. It's one of those series that every time I see it, the bookstore only seems to have book 2 or the library doesn't have it at all or it's $16 on Amazon or Amazon doesn't even have it, and ARGH. It's driving me nuts that no matter what, I can't seem to get hold of it!

  6. Thanks! And uuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh, I hate when the last part of a trilogy doesn't live up to your expectations like that...


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
