…Once upon a time I would finish all the books right away, it was a mystical time, full of warm reading spots and coffee but as I started reading more incomplete series it just got to hard to keep up, plots were forgotten and I started yelling to anyone who could hear WAS THIS CHARACTER ALWAYS HERE? What is going on in the world and who is this love interest?! Now and then I think about re-reading, then I come to my senses, take a nap and read a new release instead (repeat) The End.
Past Casey isn’t impressed with these bad habits so here’s a guilt filled post of book series I have yet to finish.
The Falling Kingdoms series by Morgan Rhodes
I have read the first 4! that’s right 4 whole books in this series and then nadda, no pre-ordering the next, no even real thought of it when I’ve gone book shopping and now the conclusion is out this year?! To be honest I didn’t love the first book but by the forth I was really enjoying the story. I will finish this series it’s just on the backburner…
Blood for Blood by Ryan Graudin
THIS DUOLOGY ENDED on one of my fave reveals and you know what I did, I sat on it. I put it off and now I’m screaming that I want Ryan’s latest book all the while pretending like I don’t still need to read this. I’m making a pact that I can’t buy Ryan’s newest book Invictus until I’ve finished this. You know what I should do that with The Starbound series as well.
Starbound series by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
*nervous laughter* I am a lot in love with Amie’s writing and I have the second book at home so there really is no excuse for why I haven’t read it except I. Am. A. Distracted. Person. If I don’t binge read a series there is a huge chance the next book my be put aside for new releases and this is what happened here.
Can you tell me who does this. Who reads 6 books, 6 spin-off novellas, AND rereads them all to only not read the last book. Me. That’s correct answer is me. Why? I JUST DON’T KNOW *sobs* I have one more book, I read 3000+ pages twice only to not read the final 450 pages.
It’s not like I can even say I don’t have the book, I do, It’s sitting on my shelf judging me and my poor decisions.
The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancy
I am not as guilty about this series. I absolutely loved the first book but the second and third just hold no appeal to me now,
and after seeing there is a fourth unnecessary books?! I’m just confused really. Turns out there is no 4th book *celebrates* still…If you’re someone who actually loved this as a series let me know! I haven’t seen any reviews that prove this book is amazing as a trilogy.
WHO GAVE THEM PERMISSION TO PUBLISH THE LAST BOOK IN 2019! I DEMAND ANSWERS. That may as well be 10 years from now in book years. I bought Lord of Shadows and was ready to stop, drop, and reread Lady Midnight UNTIL I found out about all the sobbing people yelling about the ending and having to wait 2 years for the conclusion. HA I am not here for that, I am sorry sobbing friends but I will chance dodging spoilers to save myself from that wait.
I have a few more books I could have included but they’re more series I don’t think I’m going to continue with and that’s a whole different post right there. Are you guilty for the series you have unfinished?
What book series do you have sitting unfinished on your shelves? Any unfinished series we can cry over together?
