"Top Ten Tuesday" is an original feature/weekly meme created on the blog "The Broke and the Bookish". This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at "The Broke and the Bookish".
It is now hosted by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.
Since I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other bloggers who share their lists here.
This week, our topic is Completed Series I Wish Had More Books
I think any series that I read until the end would fall under that category, so this was an easy task this week. The ones I do read usually are more trilogies than "series" but I still put them in here. These are my absolute favourites.

This does, in a way, have more books, the author wrote about a fictional Jewish family from Frankfurt in her Familie Sternberg series. The stories are based on her own family, same as the Africa books. Unfortunatley, they are not translated.
I guess some of you will have read a book or two from this list. If not, let me know what you like and I will tell you where you should start.
Have a good week, everyone.
