Unfinished Series | July ’15

Hi everyone! Today, I thought I would do something I’ve never done on my blog before. I have a ton of series that I haven’t completed, which include series I definitely will finish, series I may or may not finish, and series I’m pretty sure I won’t finish. For the series I’m not sure about, I’d maybe like some input. Let me know: should I take another chance and continue on with the rest of the series?

Note: this list only includes series that have books released which I have not read.

Click on the book title to go to my review, if one exists!

Series I Will Definitely Finish:

hoo

The Heroes of Olympus Series by Rick Riordan – Completed

Books I’ve Read: 4 – The Lost Hero, The Son of Neptune, The Mark of Athena & The House of Hades

Books Yet to Read: 1 – The Blood of Olympus

I loved, loved the Percy Jackson & the Olympian series when I was younger. I thought I would love this series just as much, but I guess I’m a little too old for the constant adventure, the constant action. It’s not a bad series at all- it’s just taking me a little while to get through it. One of my goals for this summer is to finish this, so hopefully I’ll get to the last book by the end of August.

throne of glass

Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas – In Progress

Books I’ve Read: 3 – The Assassin’s Blade, Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight.

Books I’ve Yet to Read: 1 – Heir of Fire

I love this series. I have given the first two books five out of five stars, and I’m putting off reading the last one because the fourth book is still pretty far away. Hopefully, I’ll be reading the third one this month or next month.

daughter smoke bone

Daughter of Smoke & Bone Series by Laini Taylor – Completed

Books I’ve Read: 2 – Daughter of Smoke & Bone, Days of Blood & Starlight

Books I’ve Yet to Read: 1 – Dreams of Gods & Monsters

Love this series! It’s so unique, so unlike anything I’ve ever read before. I’m sure the last book is going to be just as good as the second one, if not better. Again, I’ll be finishing this series by the end of this summer.

vampire academy

Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead – Completed

Books I’ve Read: 2 – Vampire Academy, Frostbite

Books I’ve Yet to Read: 4 – Shadow Kiss, Blood Promise, Spirit Bound, Last Sacrifice

This is a fun series, I have to admit that. It’s not blowing me away or anything. The books I have read both received three out of five stars. I do plan on completing the series, but I plan on getting through it nice and slow, because I don’t expect too much.

seven realms

Seven Realms Series by Cinda Williams Chima – Completed

Books I’ve Read: 2 – The Demon King, The Exiled Queen

Books I’ve Yet to Read: 2 – The Gray Wolf Throne, The Crimson Crown

This is a severely under appreciated series in the book blogging community. Critically acclaimed, yes, but severely under appreciated. The world-building is brilliant, the story is rich and complex, the characters are unique and lovable. I’ll try finishing this series as soon as I possibly can!

remnant chronicles

The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson – In Progress

Books I’ve Read: 1 – The Kiss of Deception

Books I’ve Yet to Read: 1 – The Heart of Betrayal

The second book in the series just came out this month. I plan on reading it as soon as I get back from vacation. The first book was pretty good, so I’m expecting great things from the second one.

Unfinished Series I Might Finish:

pivot point

Pivot Point Duology by Kasie West – Completed.

Books I’ve Read: 1 – Pivot Point

Books I’ve Yet to Read: 1 – Split Second

I read the first book, and I enjoyed it, but I didn’t find myself compelled to read the second one. Since the second book focuses on a different character – one I didn’t particularly care for – I’m hesitant to pick this up. However, the concept still intrigues me, so I do see myself picking this up some time in the future.

gemma doyle

The Gemma Doyle Trilogy by Libba Bray – Completed

Books I’ve Read: 1 – A Great and Terrible Beauty

Books I’ve Yet to Read: 2 – Rebel Angels, The Sweet Far Thing

I read the first book last year, and I was kind of disappointed. Libba Bray is a fantastic writer; I read her the Diviners and I fell in love with everything in it. I’m not too big on paranormal books, which is why the first one didn’t captivate me much, but I’ve heard from a ton of people that the second one is better, so I might give it a go.

unwind dystology

The Unwind Dystology by Neal Shusterman – Completed

Books I’ve Read: 1 – Unwind

Books I’ve Yet to Read: 3 – Unwholly, Unsoulled, Undivided

This is kind of weird, but I adored the first book. But I lost interest in picking up the rest of the series, because I do think that Unwind could be a great standalone. I would definitely recommend people read Unwind- it is creative, haunting and brilliant. I own the second book, so if I feel like it, I’m prepared.

Series I Will Not Finish:

shatter me

Shatter Me Trilogy by Tahereh Mafi – Completed

Books I’ve Read: 1 – Shatter Me

Books I Haven’t Read: 2 – Unravel Me, Ignite Me

The first book was meh. It didn’t captivate me; the writing started getting on my nerves around the 60% mark, the characters were uninspiring. The story was good. I’ll give you that – it was fast-paced and addicting. I’ve heard from so many people that the books get better, but I can’t find it in myself to spend the time and money.

necromancer

Necromancer Duology by Lish McBride – Completed

Books I’ve Read: 1 – Hold Me Closer, Necromancer

Books I Haven’t Read: 1 – Necromancing the Stone

Meh. I feel no need to continue reading. The first one was funny; I would recommend it to fans of the Darren Shan saga in a heartbeat, but I wasn’t invested enough to continue.

Comments

  1. I’ve only read Throne of Glass but my sister’s been bugging me to finish everything else. She is freaking obsessed with it! She’s literally counting down the days till Queen of Shadows. Which makes me kind of excited to delve into it!! You should definitely finish the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series. I love Karou and Akiva so damn much! I’m sad that you didn’t like the Shatter Me series! It’s one of my favorites. You have to give it to the covers though. They are sooo cool and pretty! 🙂

  2. I completely understand your feelings with the Heroes of Olympus series. I’m having the same issue though I think I dropped of around The Mark of Athena. However, It’s been so long so I’ve read anything to do with PJO that I feel like I need to reread everything before reading the ones I haven’t. Such a struggle.

  3. Great post! 🙂
    I have so many unfinished series too. I was going to make a list of them and try to get them completed! Because it seems like so many new books that are coming out are going to be series too, so I want to get these old series done.

  4. You have no idea how much I want to rest the Seven Realms series! The covers are amazingly gorgeous and they sound amazing too. Great post! Im so glad you enjoy The Heroes of Olympus series and Throne of Glass series. xoxo

  5. My life is made up of incomplete series. I may never DNF a book but I’m terrible at finishing book sets lmao. I really want to read The Seven Realms as I have heard such great things 🙂

    • Haha! Same! I very rarely DNF a book, but no matter how hard I try to keep my unfinished series at a minimum, it never really works out. 🙂

      Yes, you should definitely check it out! Really hope you get around to reading it.

Penny for your thoughts?
