I think we’ve all been here – started a series with the best of intentions, only to either a) forget about the series and not finish. b) lose interest and not finish. c) drowning in so many other books that you simply can’t reach the top TO finish or, d) all of the above.
Since I am in this huge HUGE funk (who isn’t right now?!) I’ve been brainstorming about what I could do about Getting My Groove Back. I thought about re-reading. I thought about just throwing out all the books on my TBR and starting over (this is a horribly SCARY idea) or you know, finishing a series.
But when I think about finishing a series, I get nervous because WHAT IF I DON’T REMEMBER THINGS and maybe, I HAVE TO REREAD THE ENTIRE SERIES. Which is fine if it’s a trilogy but some aren’t and who has time for that!?
Or maybe the series I want to read isn’t DONE YET and it’s been 16 YEARS *looking at you, J.R. Ward* Or I don’t know, I can’t find them? That’s a stretch, but hey.
Anyway. I wanted to talk about a few series that I have not finished, but want to.
(in no particular order)
So. Imagine being frozen. On a spaceship, heading off to another planet. Then imagine, waking up XXX amount years later (think centuries) which is actually AHEAD of schedule and living on a spaceship! YEP! Plus, secrets and romance and scientifically altered THINGS and Beth has a habit of killing her characters. *takes a breath* Why haven’t I finished?
I don’t even know.
Ah, POE! My man. (not really)
Seriously, I read Nevermore, like, 5 years ago and loved it. I remember ZERO details, just the main plot points. Honestly, the main reason I didn’t continue this series was because…
I don’t know, okay?
Seriously, I really don’t. But I do know that by the time Oblivion came out, it had been a LOOONG ass time and one could not find the time for a re-read. But I really loved the first one. 🙂
(Random, I recently met Kelly and she is super sweet! I wanted to ask her if her dreams are full of Poe but didn’t have the nerve.)
Mara Mara Mara.
I’ve read the first two – again, another series I remember major plot points but details are sketchy. I do remember being confused 98.9999% of the time but loved it anyway. I also clearly remember thinking Mara had some seriously odd things going on upstairs (if you know what I mean.)
But two years between books 2-3 is a long wait and well. Time. (I do remember hearing there was a reason but yeah. I don’t remember what it was.)
NOW, here’s a series I can talk more about.
Earth & Sky was such a fun book, with aliens and time travel and all KINDS of great things. I was a little let down because REASONS by The Clouded Sky (which takes place on a spaceship and not Earth), and it’s why I haven’t finished the series.
Howeverrrrrrrrrr. Something HUGE (I mean, HUGE) happens at the end of The Clouded Sky that I must find out about. I will be finishing this series SOON!
Tell me your thoughts
Have you read any of these books (HAVE YOU FINISHED THE SERIES??? 🙂 )
What is one series you would hope to finish this year?
