|Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! Do come join the fun...|
This list is unusually amenable to categories, so here goes.
Middle-grade boy-centric books. The lot of these are truly fantastic. I mean that. They're just not apparently designed to captivate the emotions of a certain obsessively feminine girl.
1. The Prydain books by Lloyd Alexander
2. The Redwall books by Brian Jacques
3. The Wingfeather Saga by Andrew Peterson
Grown-up boy-centric humor books. Again, great books. I won't challenge that. It's just that humor gets old in fiction if not supported by a lot of drama focused on lovable characters.
4. Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy's sequels by Douglas Adams
5. The Discworld novels by Terry Pratchett
Series with superb first books that messed with my emotions badly enough that I haven't thus far dared pick up the sequels. That sums it up, I think.
6. The Giver books by Lois Lowry
7. The Across the Universe books by Beth Revis
8. The Dark Divine trilogy by Bree Despain
The last two belong in their own classes:
9. The Time Quintet by Madeleine L'Engle. I read and loved the first three, but nothing has yet convinced me that I really want to read about Sandy and Dennys.
10. The Bean books by Orson Scott Card. But I will finish these, oh yes. I loved the first two madly.
Which series have you left—so far, at least—unfinished?
