Top Ten Finished Series I’ve YET to Finish!
I have a problem. A real, actual bookish problem that haunts me. I can’t bring myself to finish series – even the ones I love. I’ve written about being a series failure
in the past, you may remember. Out of the six series I mentioned in that post, seven months ago, I’ve only caught up on TWO of them. And these are some of my favorite
series! What is wrong with me? Am I just scared to see it all end? (Probably.) Do I fear that I’ve forgotten too much about the previous books in the series? (Yes.) Am I just ridiculously good at procrastinating at reading books that haven’t been specifically scheduled? (Uh huh.) Whatever the reason, I have plenty of series to list here!
The Unwind Dystology:
I’m cringing right now because I swore
(seven months ago) that I was going to finish this series soon. I even had my son AND my mom read it. They both read the entire series. Have I read that last book yet? No. (Hides under table and cries.)
The Blood of Eden Trilogy: (Continues cringing). Yep, another favorite that’s been on my list for months. Why haven’t I read the final book in this trilogy? Because I’m insane. It’s the only explanation, since I loved the first two books.
The Darkest Minds Trilogy: I adored the first book in this series and have a signed copy of the second book sitting on my shelf. Have I read it? No. Why would I do that?
The Bloodlines Series: I own all of these, but I still haven’t read the final two books in the series. I think this is one of those cases of not wanting a good thing to end, but who knows – my neuroses are far too complicated to comprehend.
The Maze Runner Series: My son zipped through all three of these books right quick (not sure if he ever read the prequel), but while I read the first two books, I haven’t managed to get beyond that.
The Blood Prince Series: This is an awesome self-pubbed series (adult fairy tale retellings). The author gave me the first four books for review as they were released, but I never got the last one. When I realized it, I bought it, but apparently the lack of a review “due date” has led me to ignore it. Sigh.
The Pushing the Limits Series: I think I felt like I needed a little break from this series after Crash Into You. I still haven’t read the final book (and I didn’t pre-order to get Chasing Impossible, so I guess I’m missing out on that one forever.)
The Dark Elements Trilogy: To be fair, I’m not that far behind on this one. But considering how eager I was to find out who Layla ended up with (especially with the whole fun thing where the readers voted for it), I really should have read this one by now!
Hopeless & Slammed: For both of these series, I read the original book(s), but never read the version that was from the guy’s POV. I’ve been kind of on the fence about those alternate perspective books, but I do think I want to read them.
I give every single one of you full permission to bug me on Twitter and in my comments and anywhere else until I have actually read these books. It’s getting more than a little ridiculous!
So, am I the only one who does this? Do you have any series you’ve started but held off on finishing? I want to know!
