Series I Am Not Going To Finish, Part 1

One of the amazing things about literary cons is talking to other book lovers. During YALFest, I was talking to Liesbet from Zwartraafje about series that we don’t want to finish. She was planning on doing a blog post about it, and I think it’s an amazing idea. So I’m going to do it too. (Sorry Liesbeth!!! 😉 ) Here are 5 series I’m definitely not going to finish…

The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

I freaking loved The Diabolic, but a part of that love was thanks to the fact that this was an epic sci-fi standalone novel, something that you can’t easily find in the book world. Oh so was the initial idea. Unfortunately my beloved standalone has turned into a series and I’m going to be petty and stubborn, and not read the rest of the books.

Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi

I really didn’t like the first book in this series, but that had more to do with the fact that I’m not the target audience than anything else. I am definitely not continuing this series. On to something non-middle grade for me.

The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson

I don’t often get mad at a book, but the first book in this series definitely managed to do just that. NOTHING FREAKING HAPPENS, I can summarize the whole damn thing in 3 sentences and one of those sentences contains “annoying, unbelievable insta-love love triangle”. Not for me. Moving on.

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

Even though I honestly don’t often get mad at a book, unsurprisingly this list contains another book that managed to do that and be warned, there’s a third one coming up. This is not a Beauty and the Beast retelling in my opinion and the whole story is not something I would have picked up if I had any idea what I was getting myself into. And I’m so mad that I spend my time reading this thing.

The Selection by Kiera Cass

This series is the odd duck out in this list. I LOVED book one, two and three, and I was so excited to continue on with the sequel series or whatever you call it. AND I HATED THE FOURTH BOOK. Like, HATED. All I wanted to do after I finished it, was through the damn thing in my parents’ pond. So I decided to ignore that book four and five exist and keep remembering book one, two and three fondly.

Talk to me

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!

  1. It’s sooo funny [sorry, but it is] to see people either absolutely loving or completely hating the ACOTAR-books. :p I’ll always laugh at that, can’t help myself. :’)

    I can’t even think about a series I’m not going to finish.. I should totally check my.. series-spreadsheet [why do we need those to keep track of everything.. It’s a constant reminder of all the series I haven’t finished yet..]. Although the series I’m currently reading, is one I’m struggling with. The Finishing School-series. It feels so.. uneventful and I don’t know. I expected way more out of it but I still want to keep reading because one of the characters intrigues me? But it’s not even a main character. So I’m pretty much.. torturing myself right now? What’s new, right.. :’)
