I’m starting to wonder if I have separation anxiety and thats why I have so many series unfinished.
Hello my lovely readers, writers, and bloggers alike! It’s been a while since I’ve done a casual chatty post and now I have some things to say. Lately I have been thinking about all the books on my TBR pile that is so high it’s beginning to resemble the Leaning Tower of Pisa. As it turns out a lot of these books are within a series; which quickly made me realise how many I haven’t actually finished.
We’ve all been there waiting for the next book in a series when the time of reading to release just gets way too long and either we forget what’s happened or have moved on to different books in-between. If i’m being completely honest; more often then not I already own the next book and every time I see it on my shelf I get shifty eyes and pretend I don’t see it staring at me in waiting. Well, no more! Today I am making the pledge to write a list of all the series I have yet to finish so I can officially challenge myself to read them. If you’re like me and are sneakily avoiding certain books then I encourage you to partake in this challenge too! Let me know in the comments if you do; i’d love to know what books you still have to get through.
Ok, here goes nothing. Here is my official list of series I intend to finish in 2020.
- Throne of Glass, Sarah J. Maas
- An Ember in the Ashes, Sabaa Tahir
- Red Queen, Victoria Aveyard
- The Raven Cycle, Maggie Stiefvater
- The Dark Divine, Bree Despain
- Shadow and Bone, Leigh Bardugo
- The Body Finder, Kimberly Derting
However, with this being said there are also a few series that I have decided I will not be finishing. This is not to say that I didn’t enjoy the books I have read but more that I don’t see myself as invested in taking them to the finish line. I have already mentioned in my DNF post that I am trying to learn that by not completing books, or in this cases series, actually allows me time to read more books that I have zero doubts about. Some of these books just weren’t what I wanted them to be, I grew out of them, or in some cases the ending was spoilt and I wasn’t keen in the direction they were being taken. So here goes my list of series I won’t be continuing.
- The Chemical Garden, Lauren, DeStefano
- House of Night, P.C and Kristin Cast
- Divergent, Veronica Roth
- The Maze Runner, James Dashner
- The Darkest Minds, Alexandra Bracken
- Caraval, Stephanie Garber
Let me know what you think about my lists, and of course your series you want to finish. And of course; happy reading!
