Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic was “Top Ten New Series You Want to Start.” I’ve tried to keep most of the series I chose with publication dates of 2012 or sooner. All the books listed are the first in a series, and the title links go to the corresponding Goodreads pages!
1) Of Poseidon by Anna Banks– I need to see what all the hype is around the mermaid craze!
2) Wicked by Jennifer L Armentrout- I love JLA and can’t wait to read a book set in New Orleans!
3) Pivot Point by Kasie West- I’ve heard nothing but good things about this series! I own a copy, I just need to find the time to read it!
4) The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski- Another book I’ve heard many positive things about, plus the cover is gorgeous!
5) Splintered by A. G. Howard- I actually haven’t read a YA Alice retelling yet, so this seems a good place to start!
6) Lailah by Nikki Kelly- I here this is a fresh take on vampires with a good love triangle.
7) Wait for You by J Lynn- This is actually by JLA as well, and I have confidence that she’s a great author to start with when trying out the NA genre!
8) Losing It– Cora Carmack- Another book high on my TBR for the NA genre.
9) Flat Out Love by Jessica Park- Not a book I’ve seen too often on blogs, but when I have it’s received great feedback as a contemporary with a lot of substance that deals with family dynamics.
10) A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray- Probably one of the most hyped book releases this fall, it looks intriguing and like it will have a lot of world building.
Did any of these series make you list this week? Any you’d encourage/discourage me to start? Let me know in the comments, and link back to your TTT!
I feel like today’s topic is going to be bad for my tbr pile. I also want to read all of these! 😉
Oh I’ve got Wait For You on my list as well! I’m a huge J. Lynn fan 🙂 Awesoem list, Cristina!
The Winner’s Curse is really good! And the rest of those are on my never-ending TBR list 😀
I’ve heard a lot of good things about it!
I decided not to put series that just started on my list, but if I had, Lailah and A Thousand Pieces of You would definitely be on it.
I’ve got Splintered on my list too! 🙂
Here’s my TTT
I love the covers of the Splintered series! It also seems to be fairly enjoyed by most readers, and I’ve heard of a lot of Alice retellings falling flat (and there are quite a few of them out there) so this one seems to be a good place to start.
I agree with everything you said.
I loved Flat-Out Love. I hope you like it too! 🙂 I also really enjoyed Pivot Point.
I’m really excited to read it!
I haven’t read any of these. Lailah sounded really good to me too, but I’ve read several negative reviews and now I just don’t know. A Thousand Pieces of You is on my list too! (My to read list)
Hmm that’s interesting! So far I’ve seen only good reviews, but I find reviews can be really polarized on paranormal books depending on how readers feel about certain mythological characters, how supernatural elements are handled, etc. It’s just one of those books I want to read myself and decide how I like it!
A Thousand Pieces of You is on my list too! XD Of Poseidon is really good, although, the second and third books called to me more than the first one. Maybe not worth ALL the hype, but it’s a good read 🙂
I’ve seen a lot of mixed thought regarding the whole mermaid genre but I want to give it a go, I think it could be intriguing if well done. Thanks for your input!
No prob! And I hope you have a good read *thumbs up*
I’m in love with The Winner’s Curse cover. I’m also in love with the story.
The cover is indeed gorgeous!
The whole middle row is on my list, too, (though not on the list I posted) as well as Wait for You and A Thousand Pieces of you.
There’s been a lot of overlap on books this week, I think us bloggers tend to get excited about a lot of the same titles 🙂
Wait…I thought I was the only blogger left that hasn’t read Splintered yet! YAY, I’m not alone! haha I really want to read it though, I’ve heard nothing but awesome things 😀 I also still need to read The Winner’s Curse and A Thousand Pieces of You! Great picks ^^ I hope you get to read ALL of these soon 🙂
Grrr why am i so late to the splintered party?! This series was so not on my radar until today when I noticed it popping up on all the TTT posts!
Don’t worry, that happens to me all the time with TTT posts! I’ll see a book on practically every list and be like “have I been living under a rock?”
Great picks. There are quite a few of this series that I really want to read myself – Wicked, A Thousand Pieces of You and Flat-Out Love especially, they look so good. I loved The Winner’s Curse, I am so excite to get my hands on the sequel. I hope you can get to some of these soon 🙂 TTT.
I’ve heard great things about the winner’s curse, and I think a lot of these series have really creative premises! It feels like the options and authors in YA are growing, which is really exciting!
I read Splintered a while ago and thought it was a pretty good re-telling. I’ll be interested to hear your take!
It seems to be a series that’s definitely enjoyed by many!
[…] Tuesday: Top Ten New(ish) series I want to start! […]
SPLINTERED! Aaah, I really need to get started on this one! but the cover is just *gorgeous* <3
Also, A Thousand Pieces of You is one book which I've seen rule the pages of the blogosphere. Almost everyone seems to be reading it. Love your list ^-^
Love your list! I absolutely love the Winner’s Curse — you should totally pick it up soon =)
I’m hoping to get around to it soon!
