I decided to do something different this week, plus I love questions and lists so this seemed like a great change for the blog this week!
This week's topic discusses series that you have not finished for one reason or another.
1. The Shopaholic Series by Sophie Kinsella
I love this series and only have, I think, 2 left to read, but I keep getting caught up in other books.
2. Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris
I read the first book and picked up most of the series but still haven't read them.
3. Kay Scarpetta Series by Patricia Cornwell
I read up to number 15 (I think) and lost interest in the series. Too much changed to the characters roles and I found it made it boring.
4. Anita Blake Vampire Hunter Series by Laurell K Hamilton
I read the first book and was so bored half way through it I just wanted it to end so I started skim reading the last half - and I don't skim read books. This is one series that I'll be leaving alone now. I have no interest in reading any more.
5. Mercy Series by Rebecca Lim
I've read the first two books in the series and I have the last one, I just need to get the third one from the library. I just haven't had the time to finish this series although I will.
6. The Elementals Series by Brigid Kemmerer
I read and loved the first book, Storm, and I have recently purchased the second one in the series, Spark. Another that I haven't had a chance to read, but will do soon.
7. Fallen by Lauren Kate
I didn't mind the first book, but I picked up the second book cheap and have had it sitting here for some time now. Another that I just haven't had to time to get too.
8. Graceling Realm by Kristin Cashore
I read and loved the first book, Graceling and I recently got Fire and Bitterblue so it is also on my need to read soon list.
9. Anna Series by Kendare Blake
I have a fairly good reason for not reading the next book in the series yet - it only got released in August and I don't have a copy yet.
10. Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice
I think I got half way through the fourth book many years ago, put it aside and never got back to it. I'm sure I will finish them eventually (I mean I own them so I may as well) but I'm not a in rush.
Now that's the Top Ten series I've started - I have some series books here that I either own the first, first and second, or whole series and still haven't read them! For example:
1. Vampire Academy - own all, haven't read one yet.
2. The Mortal Instruments - own the first three, haven't read one.
Recently I got the first book in:
- The Iron Fey series
- Eon series
- Under the never sky series
- Paranomalcy series
- The Chemical Garden series
and there's more but I thankfully can't
remind myself remember them off the top of my head.
So, am I the only one that keeps buying books with the best intentions? Which book series have you not finished yet? Do you love or dislike any of the ones I mentioned? I'd love to know!
