Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is to list the series I most want to read. The intention is to list new series, but when have I ever followed rules? I’ve placed them in alphabetical order because that’s how I’ve listed them on my TBR spreadsheet.Yes, there is a spreadsheet. Quit judging.
I read The Coffee Trader by David Liss years ago (2008 or 2009 I think). I really enjoyed it even though it was less coffee and more Dutch economics. In fact it was downright fascinating. This trilogy is a comprised of three thrillers set in 18th Century England.
Last year I read The Solitary House by Lynn Shepard and had a Victorian literature nerd squeal fest. Then I realized that this is the second book in a series. I’m going to go back and read Murder at Mansfield Park and go from there.
I’ve read Cold Comfort Farm and it is a gem! I really want to revisit this book and read Conference at Cold Comfort and Christmas at Cold Comfort.
Another cozy, historical mystery series with Dido Kent. I am hopeful that this will be a non-cheesy Regency mystery series.
I’ve heard mixed reviews on the Fairyland series, but I’m willing to give it a try just based on the lilting brilliance of the first books title.
Flavia de Luce!!! I’ve heard nothing but good things about this mystery series concerning a precious chemist. It is very imporant to me that I own the entire series and that they match.
There is a read-along of this series starting up next year and I plan on joining. I read the first book, A Man of Property, many years ago, but I really need to re-read it.
Confession time. I only read the first book in the series many, many moons ago and I thought it was meh. Okay, I liked it, but I wanted it to be an adult novel (longer with more detail). I’m ready to give it another go as I am sure it was a case of “right book, wrong time”.
I’ve heard that this serious is addictive, gorgeous, and all-consuming. What more could you want?
One day, Kristin Lavransdatter. One day.
