Top Ten Tuesday: Series I Just Haven’t Finished…Yet!


It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday! Remember, that Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blogging event hosted by The Broke and Bookish.  Every week they post a theme that we create a list around.  The theme this week is Book Series I Just Haven’t Finished.

I adore reading books that are part of a series.  It’s just so fun to see the story and characters I love continue!  I get so incredibly sad when a series ends because it’s like saying “goodbye” to friends and a setting I love! I know all my bookish peeps out there will totally get this! I usually always finish a series once I start it, but once in a while I just don’t get around to it as fast as I’d like. Sometimes I’m just not feeling a story enough to bother taking the time to continue reading.  So, these may be series that I didn’t like, or even those I loved and just haven’t gotten around to finishing yet. Yet, being the key word!

Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn ChildsForgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs

Over the summer I finally got a chance to read book one, Forgive My Fins, and I can’t wait until I can read book two, Fins are Forever!

Forest Born by Shannon HaleThe Books of Bayern by Shannon Hale

I am a massive Shannon Hale fan and it still shames me a little to think that I’ve read the first three books in this series but not the fourth, Forest Born! Soon!

Across the Universe by Beth RevisAcross the Universe by Beth Revis

About a month or two ago I read Across the Universe, book one, and need to read A Million Suns like whoa.

Heist Society by Ally CarterHeist Society by Ally Carter

Ally Carter is one of my favorite authors and I am obsessed with her Gallagher Girls books.  I finally got around to reading Heist Society over the summer and really, really want to read book two, Uncommon Criminals.

The Treasure Map of Boys by E LockhartThe Ruby Oliver series by E. Lockhart

This series is one I just love, although I’ve only read books one and two.  I actually have The Treasure Map of Boys: Noel, Jackson, Finn, Hutch, Gideon—and me, Ruby Oliver, sitting on the floor next to bed waiting to be read!

Silence by Becca FitzpatrickHush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

This series is one of my guilty pleasures.  I’ve only read books one and two, but I know I have to finish the series! Silence, book three, has been eluding me at my public library so I still haven’t gotten to it.

Percy Jackson by Rick RiordanThe Percy Jackson books by Rick Riordan

My students love this series. My husband loves this series.  I…thought it was okay.  I know! I know! I’m the only one out there!  But, I really didn’t love this book like others did and I just didn’t feel like spending the time to read the rest of the books.

Envy by Anna GodbersenThe Luxe by Anna Godbersen

This series was so tantalizing!  I loved the fashion, the romance and the drama of it all! I have only read the first two books but I intend to read the rest of them!

Princess of Glass by Jessica Day GeorgeThe Princess series by Jessica Day George

Love, love, love Jessica Day George and retold fairy tales! The first one was so good I need to make room for The Princess of Glass soon!

Uglies by Scott WesterfeldUglies by Scott Westerfeld

Okay.  Let me say I thought Uglies was AWESOME! I thought Pretties was just okay. I just don’t know if I’m a fan of the direction the story took and I don’t really want to read book three, Specials.

Have you finished these series? Which do I need to make a priorities? Are there any particular series that you haven’t finished yet but want to?

  1. I actually thought there was a huge cliffhanger at the end of Pretties that had me desperate for Specials. (I mean, we kind of know what happened, really, but I just wanted to read it!)

    I also really love Shannon Hale and Jessica Day George and recommend both those books. Forest Born isn’t as “exciting” as the rest of the series, but it’s good.

  2. Hush Hush seems to be a popular choice this week. I know I have it on my list as well. As for Percy Jackson, I’m sorry you didn’t care for it much. I’m a big big fan of it. It’s just so silly that it makes me giggle.

  3. I love the Heist Society series as well and Uncommon Criminals is a good read as well although I prefer Heist Society also the third book is coming out in Feburay. I’m really sad that you didn’t like the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and I’m even sadder that it sounds you’re quitting the series before even meeting Nico Di angelo and Rachel Elizabeth Dare.

    I understand your feelings about the Uglies series and I wasn’t really a fan of Specials but I loved the fourth book Extras although most people ignore or dislike that book.

    • Yeah, my husband and students tell me to continue the Percy Jackson books, but I just don’t think I will. There are just other books that I want to read before all of those. :) Thanks for visiting!

  4. I love, love, love Jessica Day George. But I was definitely disappointed with Princess of Glass. Have you read Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow by George? It’s my favorite by her. I can’t wait to read Princess of the Silver Woods!

    Here’s my TTT

    • Okay so I think I need to give Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow a second try. I started it and stopped because for some unexplainable reason it creeped me out. I honestly can’t remember why anymore so I’ll have to try again! :)

      • It did take me a bit to get into it, the whole girl with no name thing is kind of freaky. But I did end up loving it! I read it more than a year ago, and I still think about how wonderful it was. Hope you enjoy it.

    • Hey! :) So heads up with the Books of Bayern: The Goose Girl is soo good, but Enna Burning wasn’t as great, in my opinion. I think River Secrets was my fave of the series so far though.
