Top Ten Tuesday - Ten Series I've Been Meaning to Start

This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic from The Broke and the Bookish is Ten Series I've Been Meaning to Start.  One of the things I've been really trying to do this year is read the books that I've been meaning to read but there are just so many it's hard not to get overwhelmed.  While I have made some progress this year it's still not hard to come up with a list of 10 series I want to read!

1.  Dublin Murder Squad by Tana French - This is one of those series that I've been wanting to start since I discovered it when I started blogging.  I love police procedurals and I love books set in Ireland.  I actually have the first book scheduled for later in the year and I'm really looking forward to it!

2.  The Beach House series by Mary Alice Monroe - Every summer there's a new book in this series with a gorgeously beachy cover and every summer I think "I really need to read that".  I think I actually own one or two of these!

3.  The Seven Sisters series by Lucinda Riley - Something about this series has put it on my radar since the very first one came out.  The covers are gorgeous and there's some magic elements.  Honestly, I don't know that much about the series other than each one centers on a sister trying to find out her past but I know I want to read it!

4.  Frieda Klein series by Nicci French - Another police procedural though this one centers around a psychotherapist which sounds interesting.

5.  Lady Darby mysteries by Anna Lee Huber - I love historical mysteries and this series has high reviews from some of my favorite bloggers.  I'm really looking forward to this one.

6.  Ten Beach Road by Wendy Wax - This is another series that I mean to start every time a new book comes out.  The covers are gorgeous and really sound like something I'd enjoy.

7.  Tradd Street series by Karen White - I discovered this one years ago and it's really perfect for me.  It's set in Savannah which is a city I love.  There's ghosts and old house renovations and secrets from the past and all kinds of fun things.  The first one is actually on my shelf and I'm hoping to read it this year.

8.  Spilling CID by Sophie Hannah - I've really enjoyed Hannah's Poirot mysteries (2nd was better than the first) but would really love to see something by her using her own characters.

9.  Billionaire Builders by Jennifer Probst - I'm not really a fan of the whole billionaire thing in romances but this has a strong HGTV feel which I'm definitely a big fan of.  Plus, it just sounds like a fun series.

10. Rhymes with Love by Elizabeth Boyd - I took a long break from historical romances but have recently gotten back into them.  I really haven't heard much about this series or author but all the titles have nursery rhyme pun names which totally cracks me up so I feel like I should give them a try.

What series have you been wanting to start?

  1. I've been wanting to read Dublin Murder Squad too ever since seeing a review on Trish's site. I think the Lady Darby mysteries sound good too.

  2. I have just read the latest in the Beach House series without reading the others and it stood well as a stand alone. I love the Ten Beach Road series and read them all, The Seven Sisters too I enjoyed although can be a little longwinded. I want to read the Tradd St series and have it on my radar. If you read the Jennifer Probst series I'll wait and see what you think!

  3. I hope you find time to start these soon. I have been knocking out some that were on my list for a long time. It's nice to binge read the books back to back.

  9. Tana French is an author that is in my top 2 favorites. If one of her Dublin Murder Squad books is released I will stop reading whatever book I am into to get her book. Love that series!

  18. I do love a good series! There is just so many good ones to choose from AND it is a commitment (if you fall in love with it), cuz it's always 3 or 25 books!

  19. I'm in the same boat with the new Probst series. I usually love her books but haven't gotten to it yet. I'm glad you're getting back to HR! I need to start that one too, definitely love the puns!

  20. The Lady Darby series was on my list this week, too. It sounds so good! I also love Tana French. Her series consists of connected books, but since each is narrated by a different person and tells their story, you don't necessarily need to read them in order. I still did, but that's because I've got a little reading OCD :)
