Series I’ve Started (but not yet finished, oops!)

I think (hope!) everyone’s guilty of doing this, starting a series, but not actually finishing it.

Before starting a finished series, I try to think if I’ll have enough time to be able to read the next books in order in a good time, but sometimes I’ll throw that process out the window and just start reading. Occasionally, this leads to me finding another book and thinking, hey, I could so read this between books in this series!! what a great idea!!, which isn’t such a great idea, haha.

Because of this mentality, this post idea was born! And so we begin.

 

The Caster Chronicles

I started Beautiful Creatures way back in 2012 (I think) with the full intention of reading the whole series, but honestly I just couldn’t do it. I ended up having to force myself through the third book because I just lost interest, and couldn’t even bring myself to start the fourth book. Maybe I’ll give it a go another time? Not too sure yet.

 

Wolves of Mercy Falls

I finished the first book, Shiver, and actually really enjoyed it, but then I got busy with schoolwork and I suppose I just forgot about it. I don’t think the story was as memorable as some of the other books I read around the same time, so it kind of became an afterthought. I’ll probably try and start Linger some time this year, wish me luck!

 

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

I know, I know, how could I not finish this?? I finished the first and second books, but to be honest, I guess the main reason why I haven’t finished the third one is because every time I scan over my shelves to find my next read, I always glaze over the series because for some reason I always think I’ve already read the series!! I think I need to pull it off the shelf and stick it on my bedside table, haha!

 

The Winner’s Trilogy

I read the first book and enjoyed it, but maybe I read it at the wrong time because I wasn’t too bothered about continuing the series and became distracted by another pretty book. I’ll probably pick up the second book soon, but I don’t know, it just didn’t completely capture my attention.

 

Red Queen

I know, another great series unfinished! How terrible of me. I did enjoy the first book and finished the second book, but I honestly can’t remember what happened in the second. It didn’t impact me as much as the first did, and I think that’s why I haven’t picked up King’s Cage yet (it’s sitting on my shelf!). I’ll probably read a re-cap of the second and see if it piques my interest.

 

The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten

I finished the original Iron Fey series, and absolutely loved it! When it came around to the spin-off, I was super excited and read the first almost as soon as it came out, but when the second and third came out, I had mountains of other books to read so they kind of slipped under the radar a bit.

 


There are probably more series that I forgot to mention (because I have the memory of a goldfish), but I try and finish a series if I’m reading a book in an already-complete series (if that makes sense??). I’m a big binger – if I like a book, I’ll just keep reading the rest of the series non-stop (for example, the entire Inheritance Cycle in like 3 days). I promise I’ll get around to (most) of these soon!

What are your unfinished series?

One thought on “Series I’ve Started (but not yet finished, oops!)

  1. Shanayah: I have noticed that there is wheat (original fiction by a good writer) and there is chaff (Series based on a specific sub-slice of genre, which focuses on the drama and the never-ending nature of its revenue projections). Because of this, I never buy more than the first book–and even then, only when a new series offers more than a derivative of all that you’ve read before.
    I read primarily sci-fi–but the monetization paradigm is the same. Beware books that bring in a steady revenue.
