Do you have any series that you enjoyed a lot, but haven’t finished them yet? Because life keeps getting in the way, or because there are so many books to read and so many new releases that you ended up just keep buying new books other than books in that series? Yeah me too.
I’m not exactly a series person, especially the long one, that have more than 5 books. I either got distracted or bored. I just find them being too long. I prefer stand-alone, or at least a trilogy. But sometimes, even if there are only 3 books in the series, I could get distracted and keep putting the series on hold. Thus I may continued the series a year, or maybe 2 years later and ended up forgetting all about the plot and the characters, and ended up didn’t enjoyed them as much as I hoped to be.
Why don’t I binge read, you ask? Well, I’m an easily bored person. Last year, I devoured the Grisha series all in one month, and even though I enjoyed them a lot, I still struggled to get through the 3rd book because I can’t wait to finish the series and plunged into another book/another world.
This list is divided into 2 parts: series I keep putting on hold and old series that I haven’t continue because I can’t find the next book. So let’s see how many series I need to finish.
Series I keep putting on hold
1. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
I read Anna last year and really enjoyed it, but for some reasons I’m not motivated enough to read Lola. Hopefully I could finish this series this year!
2. Anna Dressed in Blood Kendare Blake
I enjoyed the story, but the romance really turned me off. Which is why I keep putting off the 2nd book. Let’s just hope I’m motivated enough to read this for halloween!
3. Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
I read the first 2 book, they were borrowed from my friend. We both enjoyed it, but somehow she never bought the 3rd book and I don’t like it that much to buy it on my own. So yeah. Another book unfinished.
4. Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins
I also read Rebel Belle last year and really enjoyed it. Again, somehow I’m not in the mood to read the 2nd book. Hopefully I could read it this year!
5. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Okay, this is the book I’m dying to read. I owned the 1st and 2nd book, but the Indonesian Publisher took so long to translate Dreams of Gods and Monsters. Up until this point, they haven’t released it yet and I began losing hope.
6. Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
Somehow, I didn’t enjoy this series as much as I hope I would. Something about it makes it only an okay series for me, and makes me not in a hurry to finish it.
7. Perfect Chemistry by Simon Elkeles
Again, this is the book I really want to read, but the Indonesian Publisher haven’t published the 3rd book, but it could re-released Rules of Attraction twice. *fuming*
8. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
This one is also an okay series for me, so I’m not really in a hurry to finish this. Plus I heard Queen of Shadows sink my ship??? #notgood #badsarah
9. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
Somehow, I’m bad at finishing her books. I read Vampire Academy ages ago, and remember really enjoyed it. I even still remember everything that happened. I also watched the movie and really liked it. But somehow, I’m not really interested to read the next book.
10. Wonder by R.J Palacio
This is one of my favorites book, but I haven’t read the companion book at all.
