Ten Book Series I Want To Finish (Someday)

So last week, I was going to post a new book review... and then I went down with a bad case of flu. A couple of sleepless nights later, and all I have to show for is yet another top ten list. Well, that's not entirely true. My scheduled review for Isaac Asimov's short story, The Last Question is almost finished, and I'm planning on posting it sometime this week.
For now, a Top Ten Tuesday will do. It's a weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish. And this week, I'm going with my own topic, and listing ten book series that I want to finish (someday). Some of the books in the series I've already reviewed, and you'll find the links to those reviews down below. 
1. Newbury and Hobbs, by George Mann

Still waiting for that fifth book - The Revenant Express, to arrive. The last book ended on a cliffhanger, and this one is supposed to take place in Siberia (change of scenery), so there's a lot to look forward to. 

2. Witch Eyes, by Scott Tracey
There will be a time, when I will read the final book in the trilogy - Phantom Eyes. And if I like it enough, I may even read the prequel.  
In the meantime, enjoy my reviews for the first two books in this YA fantasy series - Witch Eyes and Demon Eyes.
3. The Scythe Wielder's Secret, by Christopher Mannino
You remember Susan Sarnio, the sole female grim reaper in a sexist and bureaucratic world of Deaths? Well, until the last chapter of her adventures comes out, we can survive on the first two: School of Deaths and Sword of Deaths.   
4. City Of Crows, by Clara Coulson

I don't even know when or how I will be getting the second book in this riveting urban fantasy series. All I can say is that I really liked the first book - Soul Breaker -  and hope the second one won't disappoint.
5. Craft Sequence, by Max Gladstone
Was it wise to start a new series with the third book? Probably not. But if said book works on its own, it's all fine, I guess. Read my review for Full Fathom Five, while I'll try and figure out when and how I will read the first two books.  
6. The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, by Douglas Adams 
I swear, someday I will either read all of these books in one mega-sitting or just erase them from my TBR for all eternity.
7. Crumley Mysteries, by Ray Bradbury
Loved Death Is A Lonely Business. Didn't finish A Graveyard For Lunatics (can you keep a secret?). Want to give it another go, so that I can read Let's All Kill Constance.
8. Earthend Saga, by Gillian Anderson and Jeff Rovin 
It's a shame that this collaboration didn't get the recognition it deserves. Then again, I only read the first book - A Vision Of Fire (external link! You're on your way to Goodreads now), but I found it quite good.
9. Space Odyssey, by Arthur C. Clarke 
What is this series doing on this list anyway? I don't even like the first two Space Odyssey books. Clarke has written stuff way better than these dry and technical space printer manuals. But unfinished business just bugs me so darn much.
10. Space Merchants, by Frederick Pohl and C.M. Kornbluth

Loved the first book, and I hope that this long-awaited sequel doesn't disappoint.
