I have mentioned this many times on my blog but I am horrible at finishing series! I think if I put it out in the universe that I want to finish these series than maybe it will actually happen? I am going to talk about series that I need to finish where all of the books are already published! If you have read any of these I would love to hear your opinion and whether or not it is worth continuing on with it!
The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
I read and loved Illuminae almost a year ago and I have been meaning to read Gemina ever since! I eventually decided that I would read it closer to the release date of Obsidio. Well, Obsidio is out now and I have not picked it up yet! I have no excuses! I know that I am going to love the other books in this series, I just need to me in the mood for them.
Red Rising by Pierce Brown
Red Rising was another book that I read almost a year and it is the book that I credit for introducing me to my love of SciFi! I have heard that the books only get better so I really should continue on with it soon. I miss these characters!
Shades of Magic by V.E. Schwab
I was surprised that I enjoyed A Darker Shade of Magic as much as I did. I really enjoyed the premise and V.E. Schwab is a fantastic author. For whatever reason, I have not yet been compelled to continue on with the series but I would love to get to it eventually!
A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
It has been many years since I read A Great and Terrible Beauty but I remember absolutely loving it. At this point I would probably have to reread it if I wanted to continue on with the series. The books are all just so big and I think that is why I hesitate to pick it up even though I really enjoyed the first one.
Waterfire Saga by Jennifer Donnelly
I read Deep Blue when it first came out because I was all about mermaids back then! I remember very little about it but I really did enjoy it at the time. I would love to reread the first book and, if I enjoy it, continue on with the series. I have not seen a lot of people talking about it but the reviews of Goodreads are excellent!
Southern Reach by Jeff VanderMeer
I read Annihilation in January and it is probably the weirdest book that I have ever read. I then saw the movie and it was completely different than the book but just as strange. I really need to see where this story goes! It is just so bizarre so I have to been in the right frame of mind to read them.
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
I have read Cinder and Scarlet and while I enjoyed them, I did not love them as much as it seems everyone else did. I would still like to continue on with the series because I feel like I am missing out on something! I have a feeling that this is a series where the books get better and better so I would like to give it another chance.
Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan
I read Crazy Rich Asians in February and thought it was hilarious! I am hoping to read China Rich Girlfriend very soon. This series has such a dynamic and outrageous cast of characters and I can not wait to see what they get up to in the next two books.
The Diviners by Libba Bray
It has been years since I read The Diviners but I remember it like it was yesterday! I absolutely adored this book! I think what happened was that it took so long for the sequels to be published that I almost forgot that this series existed! It is definitely one I would like to complete ASAP!
Grisha Verse by Leigh Bardugo
I read Shadow and Bone a few years ago and I didn’t love it. I would like to read Six of Crows, and I know you do not have to read this series to read that one, but I would like to finish this one first!
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
I really enjoyed Under the Never Sky and I really do not know why I never continued on with the series! I would love to see what happens next. I just need to get my hands on some copies of the next two books!
Legend by Marie Lu
I finally read Legend recently and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it! I often see these books at my thrift store so I am excited to pick them up and hoping read them really soon!
Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
I rated The Girl of Fire and Thorns 5 stars so why have I not finished the series? I have no idea! I do not hear a lot of people talking about it and I suppose it fell off my radar. I am really happy that writing this post has reminded me how much I loved the first book and now I just need to track down the other books in the series.
The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa
Julie Kagawa wrote one of my favourite series, The Blood of Eden! I did not enjoy The Iron King as much as I was hoping that I would so I just never continue on with it! I really adore her though and would love to give it another chance.
Millennium by Stieg Larsson
This books are just so big!! I read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo when it was all the rage and I can not even remember what I thought about it. I own all of these books so I would like to reread the first one and if I enjoy it than I will continue on with the series.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan
Please do not hate me but I did not love The Lightning Thief! Maybe it is because I read it for the first time when I was in my 20’s? I tried to read The Sea of Monsters but I could’nt get through it. I own all of the books so I would love to try again! I hear so much about Rick Riordan and all of his books and I just want to love them!
Have you read any of these series? I would love to know your thoughts on them and whether or not they are worth continuing on with!
Are you as bad as finishing series as I am? I wonder why that is!
