It looks like I’ve finally exhausted my list of series I won’t finish (for now, at least) and I only have 4 series for this post.
1. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
Read the first book and I enjoyed it. I was pretty excited about Glass Sword, but I just kept putting it off for some reason. And now, I finally got it and it’s the book I am currently reading. I am so frustrated with it and I am very close to just not finishing it. I will try to get through it, because I just don’t like leaving books unfinished and I kind of want to see what superpowers the other reds have. But I will not continue with the series.
2. Left Behind by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins
I thought this series had a really interesting premise. It’s a Christian fiction series about the end of days and it basically describes the events in the book of Revelation from the perspective of those left behind. But the writing just doesn’t agree with me. Something about the writing style annoys me and it makes the characters unrelatable and dislikeable. I’ve read 2 and a half books of the series and it’s a pretty long one. I’m not sure how many are published, but I own 10 of them. And despite owning them, I don’t think I will finish them.
3. The Secret Circle by L. J. Smith
I read some of the books, then I got bored because it wasn’t a very good series and I have absolutely no intention of ever reading the rest of them. I don’t even know how many there are in total. Or how many I’ve read, for that matter.
4. The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini
Read the first two books in the series and I just can’t go on with it. the first one was okay, though not as good as I had expected it to be. But the second one was pure torture to read. I could not relate or understand any of the characters, they all annoyed me and it was very, very long. Even though not that much happened. I didn’t like the writing style either. And the other two are even longer and I’m probably just going to spend half an hour on Wikipedia one day and find out how the story ends, because I cannot submit myself to two more books of the torture that is reading about those insufferable characters.
