Even MORE Series I will probably not finish (Part 4)

Well, I was bound to have another one of these sooner or later. You can check out parts one, two and three if you like.


1. Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

17399160

I didn’t particularly like this book. It was too wishy-washy and insta-lovey for me. It had a pretty cool world concept, but it just wasn’t enough  to hold my interest. You can read my full review of it here if you are interested, but yeah… not likely to ever pick up the other ones.

2. Legend by Marie Lu

It’s not that I didn’t like this. I enjoyed it. It’s just that my focus has sort of shifted away from dystopian in the past year and I really don’t read dystopia anymore unless it’s some mindblowingly amazing one. And Legend was good, but it wasn’t by any means mindblowing. So I just don’t think I will ever get around to reading the other two books. I’m still holding out for The Young Elites though. It was so much better than Legend and it’s a fantasy dystopia and I don’t know why I haven’t read the rest of it yet, but I hope it won’t end up on my next “will not finish” post, because it would be a shame.

3. Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige

30309128

UGH! I do not know how to tell you how much I hated this book. I actually haven’t even finished it because it’s so boring and annoying and Snow is so whiny and insufferable and stupid. *deep breath* Yeah, no. Not going to happen.

4. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

5th wave

I really enjoyed this book. But I read it quite a while ago and I haven’t picked up the other ones and I just don’t really see myself doing that anytime soon. I still might get around to reading it eventually. Though realistically, I probably won’t because you know… so many books, so little time. It’s like Robert Frost’s poem The Road Not Taken. “Oh, I kept the first for another day, But knowing how way leads on way,/I doubted if I should ever come back.” I really like that poem.

There are a few other candidates for this list, but I’ll hold out on them a little longer. Still, I reckon it won’t be too long before I have another one of these posts.

Un-finished Series Part One

Un-finished Series Part One

I have a serious issue with starting series and then not finishing them and just starting other series instead. It’s a problem. I have so many first books in a series or first two books and I want to finish them. I want the closure, I want to know how the stories end. I just need to pull myself together. So, this post (which will probably become a series of posts) is more for my benefit than anything else. So, here are the series that I have started, would like to continue with, but I just haven’t for whatever reason.

This is going to be a VERY long post.

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

2016-07-01-23-53-21.jpgRead: 2/3

Still have to read: In the Afterlight + novellas

Descendants by Melissa de la Cruz

2016-07-01-23-49-12.jpgRead: 1/2

Okay, in my defense, the second one just recently came out.

Still have to read: Return to the Isle of the Lost

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

2016-07-01-23-58-11.jpgRead: 1/2

Thankfully, this is just a duology, which is pretty rare these days. Not that I don’t like longer series, but this will be much easier to cross off the list.

Still have to read: Shadowscale The Audition which is a short story

Legend by Marie Lu

2016-07-01-23-50-46.jpgRead: 1/3

Still have to read: Prodigy, Champion

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

2016-07-01-23-57-27.jpgRead: 1/4

Still have to read: Scarlet, Cress, Winter, Fairest, Stars Above and I’m pretty sure there are some other short stories.

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

2016-07-01-23-49-53.jpgRead: 1/2

Again, the sequel only just came out. So I don’t feel too bad about this, but I’m putting it here for posterity.

Still have to read: After You

Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan

2016-07-01-23-56-44.jpgRead: 4/5

I only currently own books 3 and 4 in the series, and again, so annoyed that they’re not only different formats, but different cover editions. I’m probably going to end up buying a box-set of these.

Still have to read: The Last Hero The Demigod Files

The Chronicles of St Mary’s by Jodi Taylor

2016-07-01-23-54-27.jpgRead: 1/7

This is a really long one, but I really loved the first book, so at this point, I do want to continue reading it. How many of them I will actually read remains to be seen. I have also listened to one of the novellas – The Very First Damned Thing – on audible.

Still have to read: A Symphony of Echoes, A Second Chance, A Trail Through Time, No Time Like the Past, What Could Possibly Go Wrong, Lies, Damned Lies and History + novellas

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

2016-07-01-23-48-02.jpgRead: 2/3

It really annoys me that, not only do I have them in two different formats, but I also have two different cover editions.

Still have to read: Dreams of Gods and Monsters + short stories

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

2016-07-01-23-51-50.jpgRead: 1/3

I haven’t seen the film either. I’ve heard mixed reviews about it though, so I’m not sure whether to watch it at all.

Still have to read: The Infinite Sea, The Last Star

 

 

Okay, this post is way too long, so I’ll have to do this in parts. Part two coming soon.

Tally this far: 10 series, 19 books + countless novellas and short stories
