Unfinished Series 2017: Let’s Do This Thing!

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.

thedarkestmindsseries

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. I’ve read and enjoyed the first book and I will be trying to finish this series ASAP.

theravencycle

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.

badgirlsdontdie

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.

fireandthornsseries

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.

shadesoflondonseries

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.

legendseries

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?

confessionsseries

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.

missperegrineschildrenseries

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?

firebolt

The Dragonian by Adrienne Woods. I loved the first book and I love dragon stories. Why haven’t I continued this series yet?!

the5thwaveseries

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!

Series I Want To Read ASAP: Part 2

seriesiwanttoreadasap

Last week I published the first set of series on my TBR list that I still have to start reading, but I there are a lot more than just ten series I want to read… So here is part two. These series below are either ongoing series with only one or two books already published or series I only own the first copy of. I still want to read them ASAP, but not as much as the first ten on my list. 😉 For a more complete list of the series I want to read, have started or actually completed, check out this post.

On to the series… Here are the second ten I want to start soon in no particular order:

11. A Darker Shade Of Magic
adarkershadeofmagicseries

I love LOVE the cover and blurb!! But since only the first book is already published and the second one will be published only in 2016, I’m not sure whether it would be better to wait until the publish date for the sequel isn’t so far away…

12. The Queen Of The Tearling
thequeenofthetearlingseries
I already own a copy of the first book and the sequel has been published this month, but it is an ongoing series so I might prefer to wait until at least the publish date for the third book is revealed.

13. Reboot
rebootseries
I already own a copy of both so I will probably try to read them soon. 

14. The Sweet Trilogy
thesweettrilogy
I’m still not sure if I would like this series and I don’t like the covers at all, but it has been recommended to me a couple of times so I’m curious now.

15. Talon
talonseries
There has been quite a hype around both books and they sound really good! Since it’s an ongoing series I might wait for a bit, but not too long because I’m really looking forward to these. I still have to get a copy of Rogue though…

16. Fire And Thorns
fireandthornsseries
This series has been recommended to me and it sounds interesting… At least it seems to be a finished series, although I only own a copy of the first book.

17. Mara Dyer
maradyerseries
I like the sound of this series and already own a copy of the first book, so I will probably give it a go soon. 

18. Outlander
outlanderseries
I have been wanting to start this series for ages! I only own a copy of the first book though and there are a lot of books in this series, but I think I will start reading them soon anyway.

19. Chaos Walking Trilogy
chaoswalkingtrilogy
Why haven’t I started this series?! I have been wanting to read the first book for ages now, and I have to get copies of the second and third book ASAP.

20. The Iron Fey
theironfeyseries
It looks like an interesting series, although I’m afraid there will be too much romance involved. I only own a copy of the first book, so we’ll see if I pick up my copy soon. 

 

Have you read any of these series already? Would you recommend them? Or do you have any on your TBR as well?

I hope everybody is having a great weekend! 😀

Series I Want To Read ASAP: Part 1

seriesiwanttoreadasap

I have a lot of popular series on my TBR list I still have to start reading. (I guess I won’t be the only one with that problem 😉 ) I actually own a copy of at least the first book of most of them… Those poor books currently collecting dust on my shelves since I don’t know where to start. So I decided to make a list of those I want to read ASAP so it’s easier to decide what to read next. There are so many of them though that I’ve decided to split this list in two haha. For a more complete list of the series I want to read, have started or actually completed, check out this post.

On to the series… Here are the first ten I want to start soon in no particular order:

1. The Lunar Chronicles
thelunarchroniclesseries
Technically I’ve started reading Cinder already yesterday, but since I’m not that far into the story yet I will include this series anyway. I know I’m probably the last one to read this, but at least I’ve started reading it now right? 😉

2. Daughter Of Smoke & Bone
daughterofsmokeandboneseries
I’ve seen this series around a lot and I like the sound of it. Hopefully I can start reading it soon!

3. The Half Bad Trilogy
halfwildtrilogy
I love the covers and even though I’ve heard mixed things about this series I want to read it anyway just to see what all the fuzz is about.

4. Legend
legendseries
Why haven’t I read this trilogy yet? I honestly don’t know, but I hope to change it soon.

5. Shatter Me
shattermeseries
I’ve heard mixed things about this series and I’m not sure if it will be for me… But since I already have a copy of the whole series I will give it a try soon enough.

6. The 5th Wave
the5thwaveseries
I love the covers, I love the blurb and I really have to start reading this series ASAP. Probably one of my next reads! 😀

7. The Darkest Minds
thedarkestmindsseries
I’ve seen this series around quite a lot and I like the look of it, so I will probably try to start reading it soonish.

8. The Raven Cycle
theravencycle
I didn’t like the first book of The Wolves Of Mercy Falls series that much, but since most people seem to agree The Raven Cycle is a lot better I’m planning on starting this series before continuing the other one.

9. The Selection
theselectionseries
I’m not a fan of covers with dresses or people on it, but since everybody seems to love this series I guess it’s about time to start reading it.

10. The Winner’s Trilogy
thewinnerstrilogy
Same as above, I don’t like covers with people or pretty dresses, but I like the sound of the story and I’ve read a lot of positive reviews.

 

Have you read any of these series already? Would you recommend them? Or do you have any on your TBR as well?

I hope everybody is having a great weekend! 😀

Series TBR/Read

seriestbrread2017

I’ve been either reading or wanting to read quite a few series and I thought it was about time to make a full list with all of the series I’ve read, I’m reading and want to read. They are sorted by the last name of the author for easy browsing, and I have to add I haven’t been able to include every book on my evergrowing TBR list at Goodreads yet…
