Hope everyone in the U.S. had a fantastic long weekend!
As you know, Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s topic is: Top 10 Completed Series I have Yet to Finish. To be honest, most of these I’m also not going to finish. If I read a series that has been completed, I’m either going to read them all as quickly as possible, or I’m just not interested enough to continue them. I mean, come on. Reading a series is a commitment.
I really enjoyed the first book of this series, but I tried to listen to A Firefly in Amber and I couldn’t get into it. I kind of think this should have been a standalone novel.
THE DARK TOWER
I’m really sad this was my first Stephen King experience. It was relatively short, I was traveling for work, and the storyline sounded awesome. But it wasn’t. It wasn’t really anything for me: not scary, not captivating, just blah.
I loved The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. It’s fantastic. I don’t know why I haven’t read the rest of this series. I think one of my friends told me he didn’t like the second book and I got scared to continue. I’ll probably finish this one some day though. Or at least give book 2 a try!
I reviewed Perfect Ruin not too long ago. If you read that review, you know my mixed feelings about this book. I actually really liked it, but I wasn’t invested enough to continue the series. Probably won’t finish this one.
alscj;eoijasfl;ksejea. Again, just wrote a post on this one. I love it. I’m scared to continue, but the rest of the series arrived yesterday, so I know I’ll dive in soon! *happy dance*
LORD OF THE RINGS
I actually am planning to completely re-read this whole series, because I never read The Return of the King and I read the rest of it so long ago that I can’t just pick up the last book!
FIFTY SHADES OF GREY
I stopped reading this as soon as I realized it was Twilight fan fiction. Nope.
ACROSS THE UNIVERSE
Once upon a time I had an English class that we picked our own books for. I don’t remember why I picked this one, but I really liked it. At that time, it was not a trilogy, and I forgot all about it for a long time. I didn’t know it was a series until fairly recently. Maybe I’ll finish it. I guess I’m kind of curious what happens.
PERCY JACKSON AND THE OLYMPIANS
I’m in the process of listening to these. I’m on The Battle of the Labrynth. I’ll be finished with these soon!
HIS DARK MATERIALS
I just couldn’t finish these. It got too weird. I got about halfway through the final book and just stopped. I didn’t care anymore. I did love The Golden Compass, but the series slowly went downhill after that for me.
Should I finish any of these? Let me know!
I’ll write again soon. Until then, keep reading!
