People are starting to say goodbye to summer but we will have 100-degree temparatures this whole week. And they say Southern California has “perfect weather”. I’m a autumn/winter kind of girl and this excessive heat is not doing it for me.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday , we’re listing down the Top Ten Finished Series I Have YET to Finish.
I’ve talked about series and trilogies in my blog here and there. I’m not sure if I’m a fan of it but it’s the direction the community is going. Series ensure the author a ready fanbase and even if the book turns out to be crap, they will “auto-buy” it regardless. I don’t have a lot of series hanging because I just don’t want to start something that I don’t think I can finish. But I do have some… especially those that roped me in because of hype.
- Fifty Shades by EL James. I’ve read the first and second books consecutively. When I got to the third book immediately after finishing the second, I completely lost interest. I’ve since read better erotica books and who knows… I might revisit this trainwreck one of these days.
- His Fair Assassins by Robin LaFevers. I have all three books. In actual book form. Signed. I will definitely get to it because it’s one of my favorite series!
- Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth. Specifically, Allegiant. I will get to it when the movie comes out.
- The Maze Runner Trilogy by James Dashner. Again, movie. I’m currently reading The Scorch Trials because, movie.
- Sky Chasers by Amy Kathleen Ryan. I reviewed an ARC for the first one Glow and loved it. Ever since, I kept track of that series. I have the other books in my TBR but I add on to that pile faster than I take off from it.
- The Madman’s Daughter series by Megan Shepherd. I loved the first book. It’s creepy and gothic… I need to find time to read the next books in the trilogy.
- The Strain trilogy by Guillermo del Toro. I know I said I’m done with vampires but I make an exception with this.
- Dollanganger series by VC Andrews. I’m considering just those immediately following the events of Flowers in the Attic. I think there are 4-5 in that series? It’s a very disturbing and yet compelling piece of literature.
- The Ender Quintet by Orson Scott Card. Ender’s Game is one of my favorites the year that I read it. It’s so advanced for it time and the twist in the end was so worth the slow start.
- Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. It’s different from the movie – which I prefer, gasp – but I still liked the book. My brother has the whole series so I might snatch it off him one of these days.
