It's Tuesday, and time for another Top Ten Tuesday post, hosted by the wonderful people over at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is a great one, because I have many, many series that I've started and just not found the time to finish yet.
1. The Iron Fey Series by Julie Kagawa
I read the first book, liked it, but borrowed the next book in amidst a HUGE stack of library books, so had to return it to the library unread.
2. Nightshade Series by Andrea Cremer
I listened to the first book on audio, and have the second two books on my shelves ... but haven't found the time to finish this trilogy just yet. The only reason that I didn't love the first book was because of the audiobook narrator, which I know won't be a factor in books 2 and 3 ... but yet I haven't gotten around to reading these just yet.
3. Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning
Again, I listened to the first two books on audio and haven't progressed much further. But they're good!
4. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
I read the first book, and thought it was okay, so I'm undecided on whether or not to keep reading. I've heard some reviewers gush over the series, and some said that it gets really good in books two or three ... so maybe I'll give it a shot?
5. Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth
I know, I know ... Insurgent is STILL sitting on my bookshelf, where it has been since May!
6. Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
My husband bought me Clockwork Prince for CHRISTMAS, and I haven't read it yet.
7. The Luxe Series by Anna Godbersen
I love the covers on these books, and would love to spend a day in this era just so that I can wear a dress like that. I read the first two (or maybe three?) books in the series, and I think I only have one or two books left to read, but I got distracted with other books.
8. Dark Hunter Series by Sherrilyn Kenyon
I started reading this series based on a Goodreads friend's recommendation -- liked book one but, again, just haven't bothered to pick up the next book in the series just yet.
9. Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris
I've read the first two books, and I have heard that the books are even better than the TV show, which is good because I'm a bit bored of the television show. Maybe it's time to head back to the series?
10. Inkheart Series by Cornelia Funke
I read Inkheart YEARS ago, and absolutely loved it. I have Inkspell sitting on my shelf, but I think that I'm almost afraid that I'll have to read Inkheart again before I read Inkspell (and it's a long book!) so I haven't read on just yet.
There are also several series that I've given up on based on their length (i.e. Pretty Little Liars) because the series just goes on and on and on with no definite end. The perfect series, in my opinion, is a trilogy. I find it easier to keep going through a trilogy than a series with no definite end, which is probably why a few of these series (especially the long ones like Sherrilyn Kenyon's books) have sat unread for so long. With so many good books out there, I'm afraid to devote so much time to just one writer and one storyline.
I also find it challenging when I've read one book in the series ages ago, but haven't read on. I almost feel like I'd need to reread the previous book before continuing on in the series (this is probably another reason why both Insurgent and Clockwork Prince are sitting unread on my shelves -- I don't remember what happened in the first book!!)
What about you? What series have you started, but not finished? Leave me a link to your post and I'll stop by to visit!
