Top Ten Series Starters

Today’s topic is a fun one: top ten books to read if your book club likes ___. I chose “series” to fill in the blank, mostly because the last book club I was in prohibited any series starters as book choices, heh. So here are some really great series starters that would make for lots of fun reading for many books to come!

  1. Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson
  2. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
  3. The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith
  4. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
  5. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
  6. Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
  7. In the Woods by Tana French
  8. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
  9. The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud
  10. The Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling

Which are some of your favorite series starters?


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

    Definitely some great books on this list! I need to check out Jonathan Stroud. I had him out from the library a long time ago, but that was as far as I got!

    Hmmm. . .

    – Outlander
    – HP & The Sorceror’s Stone (obviously!)
    – A Game of Thrones
    – The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
    – Poldark (only two books left to go!)
    – The Light Years by Elizabeth Jane Howard (BRILLIANT British series)
    – Can You Forgive Her? by Anthony Trollope (Pallisers Series)

    . . . OK, now I have to write my own Top Ten blog post!


  3. So many good ones! I can’t wait to start in on Sanderson. πŸ™‚

  4. I was really pleasantly surprised by The Cuckoo’s Calling, I couldn’t really see J. K. Rowling writing gritty adult mysteries, but I think she’s pulled it off really well.

    And pretty much anything by Brandon Sanderson is a good choice in my books. πŸ™‚


  5. Great list of books, and varied in genre and such too. I’ve been meaning to read some of Tana French’s writing for the longest time now!
