Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. There is a new subject each week and this week's topic is "Top Ten Series I Haven't Finished".
Writing this post reminded me of how many series I haven't finished because I've lost interest in them, particularly YA paranormal romance series. I noticed that I'm reading more dystopian or fantasy novels as opposed to the paranormal romance this year. I still love my Richelle Mead books and a few others but I think I am moving away from that reading trend.
1. The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon
Though I loved the first book when I read it and have since read the second and third, I haven't been able to catch up with the series yet and I'm not sure I will. I read an excerpt at the back of The Scottish Prisoner that made me think this series is going in a direction I don't care for.
2. The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
I was seriously disappointed with City of Fallen Angels so I haven't even read City of Lost Souls. I am not certain I will read the rest of this series either. Maybe I will wait till all the books are published and then catch up. I do wish this had been a three book trilogy instead of a prolonged series.
3. The Dark Divine series by Bree Despain
This is a series that I meant to finish but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I wanted to reread the first two books in the series before reading the final book, The Savage Grace. Maybe I will get to it by the end of the year!
4. The Blue Bloods series by Melissa de la Cruz
This is another series I've become disenchanted with (since Misguided Angel). Unlike the Sookie Stackhouse books (which I still read even though I'm not a big fan anymore), I don't feel the burning need to keep up with this series. I am glad to hear it is finally wrapping up. I'd like some closure by reading spoilers online :)
5. The Across the Universe series by Beth Revis
I loved the first book in this series and I bought the sequel right away this past winter. The only reason I haven't caught up is because the first book was so disturbing to me (it doesn't matter that I know what happens-I still find some of the situations and characters creepy) that I haven't been able to bring myself to reread it yet. I need to get caught up with book 3 releasing in January!
6. The Divergent series by Veronica Roth
It may have been my favorite book of 2011 but I have yet to pick up the sequel, Insurgent. I want to reread Divergent first. I am going to make it my goal to get caught up on this series by the end of the year.
7. The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini
I don't think I will be finishing this series. I've forgotten so much of Brisingr already and I just don't feel like going back and rereading these books.
8. Eon/Eona series by Alison Goodman
I waited two years to get my hands on the sequel to Eon (and it felt like longer than that) but to my shame I have not finished this series. Maybe I will finally read it this year. I loved book one but I am not big on rereading so we'll see if I can finish this series by January...
9. The Paranormalcy series by Kiersten White
Charmed as I was by Paranormalcy, I just couldn't get into Supernaturally and decided this is one series I can cross of my list. Hate when that happens.
10. The Soulscreamers series by Rachel Vincent
This is another series that I used to love but then the characters changed my mind. I wasn't happy with Nash in My Soul to Keep and the introduction of Sabine kind of confirmed my decision to quit reading this series.
The Nightshade series by Andrea Cremer (couldn't get through book 2)
Prophecy of the Sisters series by Michelle Zink (lost interest)
Hush, Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick (lost interest)
Caster Chronicles series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (no time to read latest)
The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series by Michael Scott (lost interest)
Need series by Carrie Jones (haven't had time to read last book/lost interest)
