Welcome to our latest Top Ten Tuesday post! Today the topic is unfinished series. Here’s the thing you need to know about us…we’re both kind of bad at finishing series. Like…really bad. It’s kind of embarrassing how bad we are at this. Please don’t judge us too harshly for all these books!
Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan
Michelle and I buddy read the first two books in this series earlier this year and we had so much fun but now we’re both just stuck at The Mark of Athena. I really need to finish this series this year, especially with Riordan’s new series coming out. I’m not ready to let go of Percy.
Gemma Doyle trilogy by Libba Bray
I have one book left in this series. Unfortunately, that last book is the size of a small child. Seriously, it’s like 900 pages and I’m not okay with that. I really want to finish it, but I’m scared.
Lumatere Chronicles by Melina Marchetta
I love me some Melina Marchetta, and I really enjoyed the first book Finnikin of the Rock but I haven’t continued on since. I don’t know if I should at this point? Or whether I should just start the series again?
Tomorrow, When the War Began by John Marsden
I’m not going to lie—the main reason I haven’t read past the first book in this series (though I’ve read it twice) is because it gives me serious anxiety. I read the first 80 pages of book two and it was so intense that I had to curl up under a blanket and drink tea for the rest of that day.
Across the Universe by Beth Revis
This is one of my favourite series of all-time. I’ve actually read the first book twice, and I pre-ordered the third book but have I read it nope? This is another case of me just not wanting to let go of this series. It’s going to happen this year though.
Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan: I actually hope to finish this series this year because I just love it so much. I have read the first two The Lost Hero and the Son of Neptune but need to read the last 3 in the series for my Greek God adventure with Percy and the gang to end and that makes me a little sad 🙁
Harry Potter by J.K Rowling: Sooooooo yeah. This is probably my most embarrassing one and I am probably going to get hounded for this but yeah I’ve only read the first book and I only read it this year. When I was a kid and even now to be completely honest I was never that into fantasy and then I guess the hyped seeped in so much that I never read them. I will though, I will.
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead: I read the first 4 books about 5 or 6 years ago but never finished them. In hopes of finishing the series I have even re-read the first 3 books just so I can refresh my memory and continue on but noooope it hasn’t happened yet. Maybe soon?…..
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: I only need to read the third and final book but the mixture of me forgetting what has happened and it being big enough to kill a person if you threw it at them have meant that I haven’t read it yet.
Hourglass by Myra McEntire: The last book in this series Infinityglass is only like 200 something pages and shouldn’t actually take me too long but I find the fact that the main character keeps changing in each book just slightly annoying. I’m on a contemporary kick at the moment anyway but when I feel the need to get into something Sci/Fi and action this is likely where I’ll go.
What series have you not finished? Or are you a superhero at finishing series? If yes, PLEASE TEACH US YOUR WAYS.
