Starting series and not finishing them is an intrinsic part of being a reader, isn’t it? (TELL ME I’M NOT ALONE!) So when I sat in my lair one morning, staring at my books, I decided to write a blog post on series I need to finish in hopes that it will motivate me to actually finish them. So I’m listing five series that I should and am able finish soon. (I.e. all the books have been published and I’m just a very lazy bookdragon for not reading them.) Once this list is done, I’ll create the next one, and the next one, and the next one, and the next one… There will be a lot of lists. A hell of a lot.
The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
The Fixer was the first book my book club ever read. Even though I really liked this YA about politics in the US, I never read its sequel The Long Game. The worst part? This series is a duology and I have The Long Game on my shelves. So yeah, I should just finish the series already.
Chaos Walking by Patrick Ness
Okay, for this one I actually have an excuse why I haven’t finished it yet even though I (once again) have the complete series on my shelf. If you’ve read it, you’ll understand me when I say that I couldn’t power through this series without feeling physically ill. I honestly needed a break after reading The Knife of Never Letting Go and the same thing happened after the second book The Ask and the Answer. But it’s time I brace myself and finish the thing already. Monsters of Men, here I come. (Please don’t hurt…)
Gone by Michael Grant
Just like the previous series, I’m taking my time finishing this one. And because it’s a six-book series, it’s taking pretty long. I’ve read Gone, Hunger and Lies, so Plague, Fear and Light are still on the menu. So I’m halfway there and I need to catch up in order to read Grant’s latest release that is set in the same word. Just a shame though I got accidentally spoiled to what’s going on… (I’m very angry about this as I had no idea!)
The Half Bad Trilogy by Sally Green
Another series of which I own all the books but never read past the first installment Half Bad. (Sensing a theme here?) So I’ll need to read Half Wild and Half Lost to finish everything.
The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury
God I loved The Sin Eater’s Daughter, and immediately bought and read The Sleeping Prince when it came out. So why haven’t I yet read the last book The Scarecrow Queen?Because I’m an idiot, that’s why. I might be looking forward to finishing this one the most, so I’m reading it the last.
Do you also have so many series that you never finished? Do you have a game plan to finish them? Did you read any of the series on this list and what were your thoughts? Let me know in the comments!
