Today's Top Ten Tuesday is our top ten unfinished series. I decided to include three types of unfinished series: the gave-up, the procrastination, and the not-yet-released.
He's So/She's So trilogy by Kieran Scott
After the second one I just can't bring myself to continue reading this super gossipy, soap opera story. I kind of lost interest in the characters too.
Hush Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick
I made it to book three before I gave up. I should have stopped at the first one, probably, but number two wasn't as bad as I expected. But the repetitive nature of book three and the romance just tipped this one into the realm of forever-unfinished.
The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
I quite enjoyed those first three books, but I got really sick of the fourth one and just couldn't bring myself to continue reading about Clary and Jace's forever back and forth and then dealing with the same issues as before. Should have ended after three.
Curseworkers series by Holly Black
I truly enjoyed the first two books, even have the third one on my shelf. Why haven't I picked it up?
Demon's Lexicon series by Sarah Rees Brennan
Same story as above. And yes, I have the book on my shelf - perhaps that's the problem?
Wolves of Mercy Falls by Maggie Stiefvater
Dreamhunter Duet by Elizabeth Knox
I actually don't have the book for this one waiting for me, but what's even worse is it's only two books! And the second one earned a Printz honor. What's wrong with me?
Betsy-Tacy by Maud Hart Lovelace
I fully intended to read these ones, since I didn't have them as a kid. I picked up the first two and thought them lovely, but haven't been back since.
Not yet released:
Matched series by Ally Condie
Divergent series by Veronica Roth
Along with everyone else.
