Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. This week’s prompt is a Freebie, so I decided to go with My Unfinished Series!
Hello Readers! I hope you are all staying healthy and safe. How is everyone doing? I participated in The Reading Rush readathon last week (I’ll update you on how I did in my monthly wrap-up) AND my family had a staycation, so that left me little time to blog hop. I’ve been missing you all! 🙂
MEANWHILE, my blog reached 100 followers!! How did that happen?? It almost
snuck right by me. I’ll be hosting a giveaway to celebrate very soon. Thank you for following. <3
Life Update: We are very fortunate that my husband already worked from home before Covid-19 hit, and his work load has actually increased but in a more customer service type way. He was finally able to take a week off, so we decided to make it a staycation. We had to get creative! We each drew a day of the week (there are five of us at home), and on our day we picked dinner, dessert, and entertainment for the evening. We all ended up picking very different things (hide-and-go-seek in the dark to Phase 10) and had fun trying some new food (Indian to Greek)!
For my freebie this week, I decided to share my unfinished series, or series I’ve started but haven’t completed. I’ve kept my selections to series that are complete, not ones the authors are still writing. Mostly, I was curious about which ones I still need to finish for my own selfish reasons. It appears I have issues completing young adult fantasy series. 😉
(Link to Goodreads synopsis through book title.)
Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
I own the whole series, but I’ve only read the first two books. It’s such a commitment! 😉
Will I finish it? YES! I think it’ll make the perfect binge-read one winter.
The Lorien Legacies by Pittacus Lore
I loved this young adult series back in the day! It has great characters, and reminds me of a book version of the TV show Heroes. I’ve read four out of seven books.
Will I finish it? Probably not. I’ve forgotten most of what happened in the first four books, which would mean I’d need to do a reread. And there are SEVEN books, not to mention all the spin-off titles. But I highly recommend this one if you need something for your teen to read!
The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
I’ve mentioned The Lord of the Rings series before. I’ve read the first two, but haven’t been able to talk myself into reading the last one.
Will I finish it? Yes… Maybe?? Who knows. Ha.
The Diviners by Libba Bray
I’ve only read and own the first book in this series, but I really enjoyed it. For some reason I haven’t had the desire to pick up the next one.
Will I finish it? Maybe?? I seem to have lost my desire to read a lot of young adult lately.
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
I’ve read the first two books in this alien-take-over young adult series, and I own the last one. Although, now it’s been several years since I read them. I’m surprised by how much of the story I’ve retained, however.
Will I finish it? Yes! In fact, it’s pretty high up on my TBR (to-be-read) pile.
The Conqueror’s Saga by Kiersten White
I read the first book in this series, And I Darken, as an ARC (advanced review copy), and I enjoyed it! I do have the second book on my kindle, but I honestly don’t remember much of what happened in the first book, which would probably mean I would need to do a reread.
Will I finish it? Probably not?? Someone convince me to pick it up!
The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid
The Diabolic is another young adult fantasy book I read as an ARC, even giving it five stars. THEN I picked up a physical copy of this book to have on my shelves. But I never went on to read the next book. The final book will be released next month.
Will I finish it? Hopefully!
Schuyler Sisters by Beatriz Williams
This is an odd situation where I’ve read the second book in this series, but not the first. I received Tiny Little Thing as an ARC. In fact, I believe it was my first Beatriz Williams book. I own the other two books in this series now. I love the way Williams writes historical fiction.
Will I finish it? YES!!
Ruby Oliver by E. Lockhart
I adored The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart. I adored it so much, I picked up copies of all four books in the series. But I still haven’t read them. It’s charming and funny and reminds me of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.
Will I finish it? Yes! Someday, I will. They would make the perfect books for a readathon or book challenge since they’re shorter.
The Ones Who Got Away by Roni Loren
And finally, another series I started because I read the first book, The Ones Who Got Away, as an ARC. This one was such a lovely surprise. While it’s packaged as a typical romance, it dealt with heavier issues, and it was written very well. I’ve already picked up the second book in the series on my kindle.
Will I finish it? Yes!
Have you completed any of these series? Which ones should I finish? Let me know in the comments!
