Ten Finished Series I Have YET to Finish
Omg, you guys are going to freak out. I could be here all night listing every series I've started but not finished and the ones that I have yet to start. I'm only listing 10 series that I've already started and that I still think about from time to time. I'm not sure if I'll ever finish all of them and some of them definitely have priority over others, but oh well... Let's take a deep breath before you start thinking about punching me in the face for not finishing your favorite series...
Here we go!
1) The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare: I know, I know! I love this series, it's one of my favorites of all time and I haven't even finished it yet. I started reading this series when only the first three books were out and then I read the City of Fallen Angels when it came out but then the waiting was so long for City of Lost Souls that I had to re-read the whole series to remember what was going on, and then I got distracted and stopped at the fourth book again. So I told myself I would wait until all the book were published to pick it back up again, but then I already forgot how the fourth book ended, AGAIN! So catching up means re-reading the whole thing and it's such a big commitment that I've been putting it off forever *sighs*.
2) Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan: In my defense I'll say that I didn't know this one existed until the first movie came out and I was already way older than the characters in the books. I've read the first three books and I enjoyed them, but it still takes me bit to get used to the mind of a twelve-year-old when I'm twenty three. I'm trying though, I'll finish it this year, I promise!
3) Delirium by Lauren Oliver: This one is kind of an old one too. I read Delirium way back in the day and then I couldn't find the second book in any of my local bookstores. I read Pandemonium earlier this year and although I've been spoiled about Requiem, I still plan on reading it one of these days.
4) The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa: I've really enjoyed the first two books in this series, but I can't bring myself to just finish it already! I read the first one in 2013 and the second one in January of this year. And even though I really liked Julie's writing, I've encountered a lot of Fairy-related books that have blown my mind in the last year, that I'm always kind of scared of going back to this series and not liking it as much as I did before.
5) Across the Universe by Beth Revis: I've only read the first book in this series and I thought it was great, but it was kind of slow for me and I read it so long ago that in order to continue the series I would have to re-read it and there's so many other books to read that I just can't bring myself to do it. Also, it might be a minor detail but it still important to me: the cover change drove me insane, because I really loved the first set of covers and I hate that the third book will never match with the first two (which I already own).
6) The Maze Runner by James Dashner: I have a difficult relationship with this series. I loved the first book but the second one confused me so much that I didn't even know what the hell I had just read when I finished it. I'm convinced that James Dashner is some kind of genius and that I'm the one that just too stupid to get the plot, but still I've heard so many negative things about the The Death Cure that I haven't been able to convince myself to pick it up yet.
7) Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: I just don't think this series is for me. It took me two tries to get through the first book and I enjoyed it the second time around, but then the same thing happened to me with the second one. I already gave it two tries and just couldn't connect with the story again... It's on my DNF shelf for now and I'm just not sure if I'll ever pick it up again.
8) Divergent by Veronica Roth: Yeah, yeah... I know. I loved Divergent and I know this series is huge. But I didn't like Insurgent that much, it was really slow at the beginning and then everything happened way too fast at the end and it was like I was reading a completely different series. Then, I was spoiled about the ending of Allegiant and I just gave up. I still think about picking it back up sometimes, just because it is so popular that I feel like I should try, but I don't know if I ever will.
9) Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini: I'm not that ashamed of putting this one on this list, because I'm currently doing something about it. I've been buying the books in this series since 2011 when the first one came out. So it is kind of embarrassing that I just finished the first book last month, but I'm currently reading the second one and I'm finishing this series this month for sure. So yeah, I feel a little better about myself.
10) Goddess Test by Aimee Carter: I read the first book in this series for the first time in 2012, and I read it from a Spanish unofficial translation that was so bad that you could barely tell what was actually going on with the story, but even then I liked it a lot. A few months later, I actually bought the first and second book and the novella that had came out in English and I thought I would be fine if I just read the novella and then jump straight into the second book. I wasn't. So I re-read the first book and it was like reading a completely different thing than the first time and I was so confused that I put the series down and decided to give it time so the first version would fade from my memory before continuing the series. And now it's 2015 and I still haven't finished it.
Which of this series do you think I should finish first? Let me know in the comment section below!
