Top Ten Tuesday: Series I STILL Haven’t Finished


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish (click the link to visit them) who pick a different topic each week.

This week the topic is: Series we are yet to Finish.

I used to class myself as the great unfinisher of series…what can I say, I just get bored easily! However, for that reason alone, I’m quite reluctant to start new series these days, so this topic wasn’t as easy as I first thought.

I do still, of course, have some outstanding series that I haven’t finished or caught up on yet…

1. Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy: I have read 8 books in this series and only have two to go, one of which I own but I just hit a wall with it. I do really want to finish this one though, I love Derek Landy!

2. Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins: I really loved the first book, but still haven’t got round to the second one which was quite a long time ago now, the third is probably on its way already.

3. Dark Eden by Chris Beckett: For ages I thought this was a stand-alone, so ever since I realised it’s a series, I’ve been needing to read them all!

4. Divergent by Veronica Roth: I’m not sure if I’ll read the last book in this trilogy as I’ve heard such bad things about it. I do kind of want to read spin-off ‘Four’ though.


5. The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S Lewis: I know this is TERRIBLE considering how much I love the rest of this series but I never read the last book. For some reason as a child I never got that far, and now as an adult, and knowing vaguely what happens I just don’t think I can!

6.The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare: I don’t even know where I got up any more, book 4 maybe? I had a definite love/hate relationship with these books but I do want to finish them…I think I’d have to go back and read them all over again first though…and who’s got time for that, right?

7. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead: I only made it to the 3rd book in this mammoth series, but I was loving it. I just need to get my hands on the other books.

8. The Immortals by Alyson Noel: I think I read two of these…but two was enough.

I’m sure there’s at least two more but I can’t think of them right now!

  1. I also wanted to read Skullduggery Pleasant, I just never got around to it!! Your right the Vampire Academy is such a hard series to binge read!! So many book and so much angst hahaha! I remember when I read that last book in Narnia I was like jaw-hits-the-ground shocked! And kind of annoyed with how they were going to let it end that way!! Great list!!

  2. TMI are on my list too because I was told I have to read TID before I finish them. And you should totally finish VA, its very worth the time. I hope you enjoy them 🙂

  3. Lol, I felt the same way about the Immortal series. And I gave up on the Immortal Instruments after book there. I was in the minority on that series.

    1. Yeah, a few of my close non-blogging friends were obsessed with that series the whole way through…I feel like maybe I need to give it another go…although I already read the first book twice…but still ran out of steam by the 3rd one. Gah!

  4. The only series here I’ve read to the end is Narnia — and to tell the truth, I feel like #7 is skippable. I really didn’t like the last book, and I’ve more or less chosen to convince myself that the series ended after six books! I never finished the Mortal Instruments series either. I actually thought it was a trilogy when I read it, and #3 seemed to wrap everything up, so I was done! Good luck getting back the series here that you want to finish!

  5. Allegiant is one that definitely divides people! I liked it, but think I gave it 3 stars, so it was just ‘ok’ for me!

  6. I always wanted to read The Chronicles of Narnia but just read the first book. I dunno why I didn’t continue when I was small.. I wanna read Mortal Instruments, but I haven’t started them yet. And VA made my list too!
