Top 10 New Series I Want To Start

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Sarah's Pick's
I read a lot of first books in series' and have read at least 14 so far this year so it was kind of hard to me to find fairly new series (within the last two years) that I haven't tried yet. So here's 5 series that I want to try:
1. Partials (The Partial Sequence series) by Dan Wells
This first came out in 2012 and I have been wanting to read it ever since but, like many other series', haven't gotten around to it yet.
2. Maid of Secrets (Maids of Honor series) by Jennifer McGowan
Historical fiction, spies, conspiracies and romance. I need to read. 
3. In the After (In the After duology) by Demitria Lunetta
I started watching Falling Skies recently and have been looking for something semi similar. The summary sounded good so I really should get to it.... soon.... why do I always seem to put books off that I'm really interested in?
4.Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes series) by Sara Raasch
Because it sounds totally awesome!
5. Queen of Someday (Stolen Empire series) by Sherry D. Ficklin
I have wanted to read this book as soon as I read the summary a few months ago. To me it sounds sort of like a retelling of Catherine the Great (am I right?) which is really cool. I'm super excited to read it!

Christina's Pick's
1. Illusive (Illusive series) by Emily Lloyd-Jones
They say it's "The X-Men meets Ocean's Eleven". I never believe those comparisons, but I'm intrigued anyway.

2. Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes series) by Sara Raasch
I've been hearing a lot of great things about it.
3. Loki's Wolves (The Blackwell Pages) by K.L. Armstrong & M.A. Marr
I'm a fan of both Armstrong and Marr's writing. Also, maybe I can pick up some Norse mythology while reading it. 
4. Gates of Thread and Stone (Gates of Thread and Stone series) by Lori M. Lee
Not only is the cover beautiful, the story contains time travel! 
5. Exquisite Captive (Dark Caravan Cycle) by Heather Demetrios
I love the idea of the Jini and I'm really hoping that I love this.


  1. Ooooh I totally forgot about Partials! I need to start that series as well, everyone seems to love the books! ;)
    Good list. I'd love to get to Snow Like Ashes as well.

  2. I totally forgot about Snow like Ashes! I'm hearing good things about it though, so I'm pretty excited!

    Happy reading !

  4. Partials = Awesome. I read the third one a month or so ago and thought it was absolutely amazing. The first one hooked me because it had feelings similar to Battlestar Galactica and an RPG. I hope you enjoy it when you get to it.

  5. Great picks. There are quite a few of these series that I really want to read myself - Snow Like Ashes and Gates of Thread and Stone especially, they look so good. I hope you can get to some of these soon :) TTT.

  6. Snow Like Ashes is sooooo good! I hope you both love it! The Partials series is pretty good too. It starts out really strong and kind of tapers toward the end, but it's still worth the read. I hope you like it when you read it! I'm also dying to read both Queen of Someday and Exquisite Captive. Thanks for stopping by my Top Ten!

  7. Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes series) by Sara Raasch sounds great! I must look into them. Great list!

  8. I'd love to read Snow Like Ashes! I've heard so many bloggers rave about it. (Although I thought it was a dystopian...hehe, the cover threw me.) And Partials is amazing!! It's like one of the best apocalypse/dystopians I've ever read!!! I totally recommend it. Thanks for stopping by @ Notebook Sisters!

  9. Great picks^^ I also have Snow Like Ashes, Partials, In the After AND Illusive on my tbr shelf! They all sound amazing! I hope you (and I) get to them soon hehe :D Happy reading!
