Top Ten Series I Haven't Finished
|Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish|
which features a weekly topic to be answered through a top ten list
I may just about have around 17 series that I have left unfinished for various reasons but for this post I am going to whittle it down to 10.
Series left unfinished due to lack of interest
- The Gallagher Girls Series by Ally Carter - My teenage cousin recommended this and lent me three of the books in the series but after reading just one, I found that it wasn't my type. The whole spy school of teenagers might be a fun Disney movie though but I am more discriminating when it comes to books.
- Matched Series by Ally Condie - I have read up to the second book: Crossed. But still there wasn't enough action to engage me. I like my dystopian reads to be action packed like The Hunger Games and Chaos Walking. Dark and gritty and explosive whilst Matched is the quite and peaceful kind, not really my type of dystopian read.
- Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare - I am not so quite keen on the paranormal genre, based on my experience, they mostly go the route of "if you've read one you've read them all". For me at least. I fairly liked Clockwork Angel (better than Mortal Instruments), the language, the setting, and the characters were more my taste than those of TMI's.
- Divergent Series by Veronica Roth - Divergent left me wanting more. While it wasn't short on the "action" department, it just wasn't as thought provoking as I wanted it to be. But I think I should give Insurgent a shot for me to formulate a sound judgement.
Series I would LOVE to finish but can't due to lack of funds (or available copies)
- The Thief Series by Megan Whalen Turner - The Queen of Attolia was absolutely amazingly good. Really really good. I mean it. :D
- Sevenwaters Series by Juliet Marillier - I adored Daughter of the Forest, it is a lovely epic fantasy but copies of this series are hard to find here.
- Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness - I have cemented this (right beside The Hunger Games) as one of the best dystopian YA read in which I judge the others under the genre. It is both action packed and thought provoking. I am itching for Monsters of Men.
- Thursday Next Series by Jasper Fforde - What do you think of the idea of entering a literary work, meeting the characters and inhabiting their world? Cool no? For bibliophiles, this series is a must read.
- Graceling Series by Kristin Cashore - I have been hearing how Fire is even better than Graceling so how can I pass that up?
- Abhorsen Trilogy by Garth Nix - I loved Sabriel. The whole idea of different bells binding the dead and the different gates from which they come. I am eager to know how Sabriel, Touchstone, and Moget faired in the next book.
How about you? What are the series that you haven't finished yet? Why so?
