Hey Hey! Welcome to another Random Rants and Rambling; a discussion feature dedicated to all topics but generally book related. This feature is all about BOOK SERIES!
For a full list of topics, visit the archive.
A feature within a feature. WHY YES, YES I WILL. Because I can.
I have so many thoughts about many different series out there – instead of making it one long ass, 4,000 + word post, we can break it up into many and discuss each part at length, mm’kay?! Fun FUN!
To start, I want to talk about series I haven’t finished*. This could be because of loss of interest, the length, or just.. I forgot about it? Whatever the reason… I just haven’t finished them.
*ANY series with forthcoming books are not listed.
**PS I have way more than this
*** PPS, I will not put repeats here. Soo, check out the other posts for more.
Only Book 1 is shown for the series
- Harry Potter *hides*
I’ve read the first book twice, but never really had an interest continuing. There is not one specific reason why, either. that being said, I am totally a Slytherin and love the movies.
- The Mortal Instruments
Not gonna lie – this makes me sad. I fell IN LOVE with this series back in 2008. I loved where the 3 rd book, City of Glass, left off. And yes, I loved TID but wasn’t big on the revamp (books 4-6) of TMI. I want to read the other spin-offs at some point, so I will be doing a MASSIVE reread.
I love love love the first two books in this series. Which is funny, because I totally forgot about it when the 3rd book was being released. I would have to reread before finishing this series because they’re so intricately detailed. (I’m a collector of this series, so if you have an ARC of the first book, and don’t mind parting, PLEASEEEEEEEEE let me know.)
I think I like this series more than Vampire Academy. But after reading spoilers for the final book, I decided not to read it. SAD DAYS.
Another series that (many) really love.. I can’t even give you a legit reason I never picked up the final book.
- Conspiracy of Us
This was one of the first YA series I started on audio. I didn’t really like where the second book ended.. but I don’t think that’s really what kept me from finishing.. Actually, I can’t think of any other reason why I didn’t finish this one, too.
WOW Look at that matching color scheme!
- Women of the Otherworld
This series. It’s one of the first Paranormal Romance series I started when I got back into reading, and I love them SO much. (The YA series, Darkest Powers, is one of my all time favorites, too.) This world is fascinating; with witches, shifters, necromancers, demons, vampires, etc. So, what kept me from finishing? The final books has a main character named Savannah, which is a 12 year old girl early in the series and grows up as the series progresses. I have ZERO interest reading about her grown up. Especially her more.. mature scenes. NOPE.
- Black Dagger Brotherhood (BDB)
This one is easy. This series is MASSIVE. I stopped reading at book 10? maybe 9 when I noticed the same themes. Plus, my favorite plot arc of the story was resolved. I hear there is a spin-off of this and the main series is on book 15? But dang.
- Kingmaker Chronicles
Again, another start to a series I really, really liked. That being said, I felt like this was too similar to one of my other favorite series, Kate Daniels. I know it’s hard to be wholly original, but… too many similarities for me.
- Have you read/finished/not finished any of these series?
- What are some series that you haven’t finished yet?
