Series I’ve Started but Haven’t Finished yet

Manga Series I've Read from Start to Finish (2)

It seems that I always have difficulty finishing series. I’ve noticed several series that I haven’t finished, that I’ve just left to gather dust on my bookshelves to avoid the inevitable last book. 

I have a bad habit of reading the first book in a series when it first comes out, LOVING it, but then never keeping up with the series when the next books come out. It’s just so hard to remember how much you loved the first book when the second book finally comes out like twelve months later. The excitement definitely gets lost somewhere in all those months.

I think the title really speaks for itself with this one. I’ve been thinking of all of the series that I’ve started but haven’t caught up with or finished. Hopefully by posting this, I’ll finally get on top of that. So, let’s just get into it, I have 22 Series to Mention! I should probably think about finishing some of these soon:

Covenant by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I read Half-Blood and the Prequel, Daimon, I love them with all my heart. The only reason I haven’t read the rest of this series yet is because it’s quite a long series!

The Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth

I started reading Divergent after I heard about the Movie. Like always I am more than fashionably late to the party. I actually don’t know yet if I will be continuing this series, I got spoiled for the ending of Allegiant and now I have no interest in finishing it.  I made the decision to stop reading the series… but I’m wondering if I should give it another chance. I did enjoy the first book, Divergent!

So what do you think? Should I continue on and give this series a chance?

The Carrie Diaries by Candace Bushnell

I actually didn’t enjoy the first book that much, The Carrie Diaries was a huge disappointment for me, but I still want to give this series a second chance and read the Sequel.

Blood of Eden by Julie Kagawa

I loved the first two books in this series so much. It really surprised me (in a good way). But then when the third book came out I just never read it. I’m not even sure why—it’s just sitting on my shelf.

Forever

I have this on my shelf and I really need to get to reading it soon! I simply have to make it a priority.

The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa

I loved the first book in this series but never continued past that I’m not even sure why I never continued it, I guess I’ve just never had the time. I can’t wait to continue this series.

I have Read:

Iron King

Teardrop Duology by Lauren Kate

I loved Teardrop so, so much. But then when the second book came out I just never read it. I’m not even sure why.

Beautiful Dead by Eden Maguire

Yet another one that I have only read the first book of, but that’s because I don’t own the second books, I have the third book. I’ve had trouble finding the r3est of them.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

 I’ve read the first two books and only have one to go, but it is still sitting on my shelf. I really didn’t get why this series gets so much hype. But I will continue this series, I enjoyed LOLA more than ANNA and I’ve heard that ISLA is even better.

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

I’ve read Vampire Academy and loved it, had intentions to read book two and for some unknown reason it just hasn’t happened yet. But that’s also because I don’t own the rest of the series.

Empty Coffin by Gregg Olsen

I have read the Envy but need to read the Sequel, Betrayed. I loved the first book when I read but for some reason I never continued it.

I actually hope to finish this series soon because I just love it so much and I only have one book left to read.

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

This is a series that I will be finishing soon. I was so excited for this series when it was first announced, and I enjoyed the first book. When I read the Second one, The Wicked will rise, I was disappointed. So I stopped reading them for a bit, that’s why I’m behind on this series. I’m hoping to finish this series early next year, so hopefully I actually will do so!

There are also heaps of Novella bind-ups for this series that I’m hoping to get around to reading as well.

Fairytale Retellings by Jackson Pearce

I’ve read sweetly and absolutely loved, this is actually the second book though, you can read this one as a standalone without reading the first but I wouldn’t recommend it. You’ll probably get more out of this series if you read them in order. I bought this book because I loved the cover, without realising that it was part of a series.

The Last Vampire by Christopher Pike

I read the first book from this series, and I loved it. I’m not a big fan of Vampire books anymore, but This series was so amazing, I have the second book , but I have yet to read it. It’s on the list. The massively dreadful yet beautiful list.

Miss Peregrine’s Home by Ransom Riggs

This is more of a recent series I’ve started to read, I enjoyed the first book and will definitely be reading the rest of the series early next year. It’s just so spooky and eerie, I love it.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

I was very late to the party with series, I only started reading this in 2016, I absolutely adore the Harry Potter Series, this is such an Imaginative series and I can definitely see the Appeal. I will be finishing this next year for sure.

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

This was a series that I was putting off for ages, it was sitting on my shelf for a really long time because I didn’t think I would enjoy. When I started listening to these on Audio, it actually surprised me (in a good way). I do own them all though, so I’ll finish this one next year.

Night World by L.J. Smith

This is a series that I don’t even know if I will ever finish. I read the first two books, and there’s two books left to read. I might read one more only because I own the next one, I didn’t even realise that there was another one in this series until recently. This unmotivates me even more for finishing this series, because I don’t see the point in buying the last book when I’m not even enjoying them that much.

Wicked Years by Gregory Maguire

While Wicked was a bit disappointing, I still enjoyed it and will give the rest of the series a chance! I own all of the books, except the last book and I don’t think that one’s been published in the same cover as the others.

Wicked

Percy Jackson & the Olympians by Rick Riordan

I’ve only read the first book in this series and even though I didn’t love it, it was still a lot of fun to read. I just think the Language is too young for me. I will still finish this series, but only so I can get up to the Heroes of Olympus series, which I’ve heard is better. I can’t wait to see the improvement and see where this series goes. Like I said though, this series is enjoyable enough that I have no problems continuing it.

The Selection by Kiera Cass

This was another recent one, and even though I didn’t love it, I enjoyed it enough. It was fun and easy to read. So, I’ll be continuing this series, but I’m only planning on reading the first three books, as this was only suppose to be a trilogy anyway and I have no interest in reading beyond that.

The Forbidden Library

I listened to the first two books on Audio and have been dying to finish the series ever since. This is such a fun series to read, the only problem is the next two books in this series are still too new that I can’t find them on the Audio yet and that’s why I haven’t been able to finish this series!

Chat With Me

Thank you for reading! I hope you enjoyed this post! Writing about books so much has made me realize how many books I have yet to read and that I will never ever read even a fraction of what is out there, but giving myself to those books I have read and love makes my obsession all the more worthwhile!

What completed series do you still have to finish? Have you read any of these ? What did you think of them? Do you think I should move any of these higher on my Priority list? Let me know if you’ve read any of these and whether or not they’re worth finishing!
