Don’t you love a good series? It means that even when you finish a great story, you know it will continue with familiar characters you’ve grown to love.
Today’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt regards book series. It is supposed to be a list of series that I haven’t started yet, but I also decided to include some series I have started but haven’t finished.
SERIES TO START
Elite Guardians by Lynette Eason
Although i enjoy romantic suspense it is not my go-to genre. But I keep reading amazing reviews and recommendations for this series and it has me intriuged. With a focus on a female bodyguard agency and comparisons to author Dani Pettrey (whose books I love) I think I will enjoy this one.
The Jacobite Chronicles by Julia Brannan
Although I read tons of historical fiction, I don’t often find a series set during the years of the Jacobite rebellion. Although I have yet to read a book by this author, with the first title Mask of Duplicity currently free on Kindle I have no excuse not to check it out.
Mended Heart Series by Varina Denman
I have heard amazing things about this contemporary women’s fiction series set in my home state of Texas. The setting alone interests me and since I already own two of the three titles I have no excuses.
Southern Heart Series by Janet Ferguson
I love southern fiction and this is another series I keep hearing great things about.
Vikings of the New World by Heather Day Gilbert
I don’t run across a lot of Viking fiction. It is a time period and culture which intrigues me and this series is based on real historical figures. The sad thing is I actually own both of the books in this series and haven’t yet read them.
SERIES TO FINISH
I have started each of the following series, but have made it no further than the first book.
The Everstone Chronicles by Dawn Crandall
I read the first title of this American historical series and loved it. I keep hearing from reviewers how much they love the heroes of this series, so I really need to keep reading so I can meet them!
Drew Farthing Mysteries by Julianne Donaldson
As a fan of the classic film series The Thin Man, this book series is right up my alley. I love the idea of a new Nick and Nora expanded to include a friend to form a threesome sleuthing trio. And it’s set in 1930’s upper class England so, you know, it’s pretty much my perfect world. With all the recent historical murder mystery adaptations showing on Amazon and Netflix someone needs to bring this one to the small screen.
Penned in Time by Pepper Basham
Ya’ll. I’ve read the first title of this series and Basham’s other books as well. I love her writing and I am kicking myself for not having read the remaining two books in this series.
What’s in a Name by Eryn Scott
I discovered Eryn Scott last year when I read A Chance for Sunny Skies which ended up on my end of the year best books list. If the remaining two stories continue with the quirky characters I’ve grown to love, then this series may become a favorite.
The Chancellor Fairy Tales by Poppy Lawless
I loved the whimsical slightly mystical feel of the first book in this series. Plus, who doesn’t love re-imagined fairy tales?
Do you have a favorite book series you would recommend?

Love the Elite Guardians series. So good – and those covers are fabulous for these stories. Yay for another Drew Farthering and Co. fan. Love those books. In fact, I need to read the latest book so I’m ready for the next book. 🙂
