I’m having the feeling I’m not alone when it comes to having a huge pile of series lying around that I either still have to start or have to finish. With so many new books being published all the time, I tend to get distracted and somehow manage to neglect to finish series even though I enjoyed reading the first book or books… And I feel kind of bad about it. I was browsing my series TBR/Read list the other day and the amount of unfinished series had me shocked. And then I’m not even talking about these two lists (1, 2) I wrote back in June 2015 with series I wanted to start ASAP… Because out of the twenty series I mentioned, I only managed to finish ONE. *hides in shame* I started nine more, but that still means only half of the total.
So I’ve decided to change that. I will be making a promise to myself to finish at least 5 of these series by the end of the year. And not only that, for every new series I want to start, I have to read a sequel of a different series first. Kind of like ‘earning’ the right to start a new series, and hopefully it will help finishing those I have already started. Which series will I be focusing on? You can find ten of them below.
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. I’ve read and enjoyed the first book and I will be trying to finish this series ASAP.
The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater. I read the first book and enjoyed it, but somehow I never picked up the sequel. I got a copy of the fourth book not that long ago, so there’s no excuses left to not continue this series soon.
Bad Girls Don’t Die by Katie Alender. I really enjoyed the first book and want to read the sequels this winter… Either that or during the Halloween month.
Fire And Thorns by Rae Carson. I loved the first book, but somehow I never continued the series. Hopefully this year I will change that.
Shades Of London by Maureen Johnson. The first book of this series was really entertaining, so I definitely want to read the sequels some time soon.
Legend by Marie Lu. Another one where I enjoyed the first book, but managed to ignore the sequels… I still have to read The Young Elites as well. Oops?
Confessions by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro. I enjoyed the first book, but the second wasn’t as strong… They are superfast reads though and I already have the copies, so I still want to finish this series.
Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I want to kick myself for not reading the sequels sooner! I have been meaning to read these for ages now… Hopefully soon?
The Dragonian by Adrienne Woods. I loved the first book and I love dragon stories. Why haven’t I continued this series yet?!
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey. I read the first two books and I admit I’m not really a fan. I still want to read the third book though, if only not to leave a series unfinished.
I just named ten of the series I will be trying to finish this year, although I have a lot more on my shelves haha. Have you read any of these yourself? Which unfinished series are your priority? I hope everyone is having a great weekend! ❤
