Top Ten Tuesday- Series I May Pick Back Up

Top Ten Tuesday (1)

Top Ten Tuesday was created by  The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.

Would you believe me if I told you this was a post I was going to do before I found out it was a TTT topic?

A while ago, I did a Top Ten Tuesday about books I’ve decided to drop, but there have been some books that keep popping up everywhere that I’m like… maybe I could read the sequel

I read the first one a while ago and rated it a 2 star, but this series has been everywhere. I can’t turn around without seeing fan art, tweets, anything. So now that I have a library card (!!! I’m still really proud of this) I don’t have to pay for book two…

The Bone Season series

I got two books in, was liking it… and didn’t buy book three. This is a 7 book series (don’t quote me… though I’m kind of confident about that statement) and… it wasn’t blowing my mind enough to be loyal to the series. But as I was unhauling, I saw the two books and didn’t really want to part with them.

Charlotte Holmes series

Another two star (I wasn’t really getting Jamie’s… thing for Charlotte) but again, I’ve been seeing this one around… and people are saying they get better, so though this is one of my not-so-sure picks, I HAVE A LIBRARY CARD SO IT’S ALL GOOD.

The Darkest Minds series

This one is less noble than the ones mentioned above: at first, it was because the movie was coming out, but now it’s because of Bracken’s new (is it a spin off?) series with Zu as the main character. I actually plan on buying these as well (don’t know if that’s smart or not…)

Skinjacker trilogy

This was one I subconsciously was planning to drop until (this is going to be weird) I looked at my cat? Because I’ve read two out of three books with my cat snuggled next to me during a blackout by candlelight (this is a story I tell in both of my reviews) and the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to just knock this out.

Vampire Academy series

… Okay, here’s the thing: Colleen told me to continue because it get’s better? And then, I started to see the book everywhere?? Aaaaannnnd since I have a library card (I will never NOT be happy about this) I don’t have to pay for the sequel…. so we’ll see….

T.V Shows



Here’s the thing: I didn’t drop this series… I just haven’t been watching. Which is strange, because I procalaim my love for this series EVERYWHERE… I’m just so nervous, I’ve been seeing so many mixed reviews… I WILL PICK IT BACK UP MARK MY WORDS.

Another show that I love, but just haven’t been  watching. I don’t know, nerves, laziness, ALL OF THE EXCUSES. Again, I have every intention of picking this one back up.


The 100

This is an odd one; I’m dropping the show. It hasn’t been fun since season 3? But, a sadistic part of my mind wants to pick up the book series… and since I have a library card… no consequences XD .

I actually went through my Goodreads shelf and looked at all the low rated books that I have, because they weren’t coming to my mind as quickly as I wanted them to. And then I ran out of books, so T.V. shows are the next best thing.

Have you guys read/watched any of these? Are they worth it? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. You should try reading the second Ember book — I personally found it so much more fun than the first. As for The Darkest Minds, the first one drove me insane but I ended up really liking the other two books in the series! Great post ❤

      1. I believe in you!! One of my old coworkers at Panera borrowed both series from me until the last of the spin off book. She doesn’t want it to end so she has been avoiding it for two years….and I’m like…it’s not bad and she’s all noooooo don’t tell me! And I say that’s not a spoiler lol. It’s just not as bad as she might be imaging it.


  2. I haven’t started season 2 of Westworld either, for no particular reason whatsoever. And I was annoyed with something at the beginning of season 5 of the 100, so I am waiting for that to be over so that i can binge and get to the better parts haha

    1. I just couldn’t connect with the characters or their struggles of the weird love… square?? It has potential which is why I’ll pick up book two (eventually) 🤐

      And I need to know how Maeve is doing after a certain thing she did in season one because I AM NOT OKAY

  3. I keep feeling interested in the Charlotte Holmes series but just haven’t picked it up – I think it’ll be a pass for me. I loved the first season of Westworld! I still haven’t started this season yet but I need to.

    1. If the Charlotte Homes series wasn’t at my library, it’s be a definite series that if give up :/

      I’ve seen so many mixed reviews on season two of Westworld, the longer I sit on it, the larger my doubts become… I just need to their caution the wind and start it XD

  4. The Darkest Minds is so good! Please read it! The first book is the weakest but afterwards it just gets so complex! The third book is my favorite and I’m reading The Darkest Legacy right now! My friend raves about the Charlotte Holmes series so maybe you can give it another chance. I haven’t read An Ember in the Ashes, The Bone Season, or Vampire Academy but they are all on my TBR! But I think I’m going to get to Ember in the Ashes soon.
