Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top TEN Series I’ve Given Up On/Don’t Plan to Finish.
This is a great topic. It also makes me take a look at where I’m at. I hope to be real with myself! 🙂
1. The House of Night series by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast.
-I just can’t and won’t. I got far in the series but it really went down hill and I completely grew out of it. This was just over a decade ago for me.
2. White Rabbit Chronicles by Gena Showalter
-I liked the first book and was planning on continuing but then I started to hear a lot of mixed reviews. I’m just not going to touch this one.
3. The Hybrid Chronicles by Kat Zhang
4. Graceling Realm Series by Kristin Cashore
-I know that I’m going to be in a minority here but I really didn’t like the first two books in this series. I have the third book on e-book and I know that I’m just never going to do it. I didn’t really like the previous two, so I just can’t.
5. The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee
-I read the first book and it was okay. Not enough greatness there to have me continuing the series.
6. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
-Okay, I enjoyed the first book but I’ve heard and read so many bad things about book two. I decided not to continue it since then. I mean there’s just so much to read. Now, here’s the thing. How was the series after book 2?? Did it get better? Is this a series that I need to re-think and just read it?? Please, let me know.
7. Millennium series by David Lagercrantz (not LARSSON)
-I have read the first 4 books and I LOVED the first 3. The first 3 books were written by Stieg Larsson, who has passed away. David Lagercrantz has decided to pick up the series, even though there was controversy. He did a crap job. It’s nowhere near the books I loved. There is no way I will be finishing this series.
8. Mara Dyer/ Noah Shaw Confessions by Michelle Hodkin
-I read the Mara Dyer series and the last book was an epic flop for me. I really disliked it, which was so sad. I had loved the series until that point. There’s just no way that I can pick up this companion series- Noah Shaw Confessions.
9. Maddox Brothers by Jamie McGuire
-I’ve read the first 3 books in this series and I just couldn’t do it anymore. I will never be finishing this series and seeing how all these brothers make out. I actually think that I won’t be reading anymore of Jamie McGuire books.
10. The Giver by Lois Lowry
-I read the first two books. I liked the first a lot more than the second. I think that’s where I will stop with this series.
11. This one is just for fun.. maybe
– Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
-I just don’t know. There’s supposed to be two more books. He will never finish writing them. I honestly just don’t think he can. I don’t know that I will want to read them. I’m so annoyed with the false release dates. Plus, I didn’t even finish his last book. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried and I’ve only made it about half way through. I did this one as a joke because, of course I’m going to finish it. Now, that I’m being honest with myself. I just don’t know that I will.
What series are you not finishing? Is it because you don’t want to or your preferences have changed? Are any of them on my list? It makes me sad because I have this “incomplete” feeling but sometimes you just have to let go. Some of these series have been on my list for years.
