After years of nearly drowning under a TBR pile that got as high as almost 400 books at one point, I am very careful about not letting myself go down the rabbit hole again. I am not a fan of being disorganized, so after my switch to e-books I made a vow to not let things get out of control again. That said, though, I do have some series that are on my “To Be Read – One Day” bucket list.
I have checked a couple of them off already – Sherrilyn Kenyon‘s Dark-Hunter series (which didn’t work out so well), and J.R. Ward‘s Fallen Angels books (which did). I am still plugging away on J.D. Robb‘s In Death monster, which is an absolute favorite, and just getting into Faith Hunter‘s Jane Yellowrock world…again. But my bucket list doesn’t end there.
As it stands now, my immediate list would look something like this:
- Diana Gabaldon‘s Outlander – I haven’t seen the show, but I am circling that, too. I would love another really good book/show adaptation to get into.
- George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire – Love the show, and I think it would be great to pick up the books, too. Plus at this point I actually know who is who, which is a bonus.
- Stacia Kane‘s Downside Ghosts – This has been a target for a long time now, but what is holding me back is the complete lack of info about the state of the series. The last book came out over five years ago, and finding any info about the next one is like trying to track down bigfoot. Apparently the new predicted release date for Unholy Luck is December 1st, 2018. Eh, we’ll see.
- Jennifer Estep‘s Elemental Assassin – Another one that has been on the radar for a long time now. Mostly, I am attracted to the pretty covers, but it seems like a good, solid series that shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. And I did like all of the young adult series of hers that I read.
- Kim Harrison‘s The Hollows – Honestly, I have been meaning to get into this one for years. YEARS. And somehow I just keep skipping over it. Not sure why, but it will be nice to pick up a new series that has already ended its run – no painful cliffhangers that way.
A few others would be Eileen Wilks‘ World of the Lupi, the Sookie Stackhouse series from Charlaine Harris, and the October Daye and InCryptid series from Seanan McGuire have been tempting me, too. Oh, and any of the Elizabeth Hunter series are up there, as well. Sigh.
What are your bucket list series? If you have read any of mine, what did you think of them? Any favorites?
