Top 5 Series I Want to Start

T5T Series I Want to Start Banner

Hello everyone!

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Bionic Bookworm! If you’re interested in participating, check out her wonderful blog to get the details and the prompts for each week!

This week’s Top 5 Tuesday theme is series that I want to start, and oh my God, there are so many! I recently organized my books, and it opened my eyes to how many series are on my TBR. I decided to include some duologies on this list (does a duology count as a series?) because they’re at the top of my list of series that I want to read.

img_1167Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston: This series is at the top of my list of series that I want to start because I love Ashley Poston. The Once Upon a Con series is one of my favourites, and I want to dive into this sci-fi universe that Ashley Poston created. This book is a retelling of Anastasia, which makes me even more excited to dive into this book because Anastasia is a great story.

img_1166Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor: There are two main reasons why I want to read this series. The first reason is that it features a young librarian and a lost city, which sounds awesome. The second reason is that so many people love this series, and I want to understand the hype. I also happen to love the cover of this book, which makes me excited to pick it up at some point.

img_1165The Aurora Cycle by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff: Last year, I listened to the Illuminae Files, and I loved everything about it. Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff make an amazing writing pair, and I can’t wait to dive into their newest sci-fi adventure. I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to read or listen to this series, but I’m leaning towards listening to it because listening to the Illuminae Files was a great experience.

img_1168Miss Marple by Agatha Christie: I’m a little surprised that I haven’t started this series yet, especially because I’ve read a lot of Agatha Christie. Last year, Book Outlet had a ton of Agatha Christie books, and I made it my mission to own all the Poirot books because I love the little Belgian detective. Once I’m done with Poirot, I’m planning on diving into all the Miss Marple books, because eventually, I want to read all of her mysteries.

img_1169Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella: The reason why I want to start this series is that it sounds like a lot of fun. I also want to start this series because I’ve been reading more “chick-lit” (ugh, I hate that term) lately, and this series falls into that category. I’ve also heard that this series is laugh-out-loud funny, and I love books that make me laugh.


How about you? Have you read any of these series? What series do you want to start? Let me know in the comments!


  1. Great picks! I’ve read Confessions of a Shopaholic, but I never read the whole series. Muse of Nightmares is on my bookshelf waiting on me to finish that series. I really want to read the Aurora Cycle. Hopefully soon. I hope you get to and enjoy all of these!

  2. I was hesitant to read Strange the Dreamer, but I ended up loving it! I hope you enjoy the series as well! 🙂 I have yet to finish the Illuminae Files series, but I would also like to start Aurora Rising soon after I finish!

    I’ve also been thinking about reading some Agatha Christie books. Which one is your favorite so far?

    • I really enjoyed And Then There Were None, it’s a stand-alone book. For the Poirot books, so far my favourites have been The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and Murder on the Orient Express! 💜

  3. I love the Miss Marple series! A Murder Is Announced was the first one I read, and it still amazes me how clever Agatha Christie’s writing is.

      • She is! My favourite thing about her stories (both Poirot and Marple, and even the independent ones) is that you get a massive clue near the beginning who the baddie is, but it’s so innocent you don’t really pay it any attention until you get to the end and it suddenly makes sense.

      • My favourite Marple one is A Murder Is Announced, though my number one has to be And Then There Were None

  4. I really want to read Heart of Iron and Aurora Cycle too! I read Strange the Dreamer but I don’t think I really understood it so may need to do a reread before attempting Muse of Nightmares! 😂

  5. I’m so excited about Aurora Burning – I loved the audiobook of Aurora Rising last year, and I can’t wait to get back into the series.
