Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week I will make a list of 10 books, authors or other bookish things surrounding a certain topic. Today, we’re talking about finished series we have yet to finish. I interpreted the topic accordingly: series that are finished, which I have already started and want to finish soon-ish. So let’s get into it!
While I was creating a list for this topic, I noticed several things. Firstly, I am reading a lot of series currently being written. Series that aren’t finished yet. Secondly, I have finished a lot of the finished series I want to finish –what?
The Scarlet trilogy by A.C. Gaughen // I only started this trilogy in 2015, but quite enjoyed Scarlet, the first book! I didn’t immediately continue on, which as I’ve noticed is a big mistake. I either binge-read a series, or I wait months to a year to read on. There is no in between. But I really want to read Lady Thief and Lion Heart!
The Persefone trilogy by Michelle Gagnon // I just looked at my Goodreads reviews for these, and I noticed it’s been a year since I read the second book in the trilogy, Don’t Look Now. WHAT? I really loved the first two books in the trilogy, and I definitely want to read the third one and finish the trilogy. Maybe I should look up what happened in the second one though, not sure I remember it all.
The Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead // I read the Vampire Academy series in 2013, if I’m not mistaken, and I have read the first book in the Bloodlines series, but I’ve never continued. I don’t actually know why. Maybe because my reading tastes have changed in the past 2 years? I used to constantly read dystopian/paranormal YA in that time and now, I almost only read fantasy. But I definitely want to give the rest of this series a try.
The Gone series by Michael Grant // Another one I read in 2013! I’ve only read the first book, Gone, but I absolutely loved it. So why did I never continue? No clue. I really want to read on because I have a feeling this is a dystopian series I would really come to love.
The Shattered Sea trilogy by Joe Abercrombie // I’ve only read the first one, Half a King, and I read it in 2015 but I definitely want to continue. It was my first Abercrombie book, but I can guarantee you it won’t be the last.
The Narnia series by C.S. Lewis // I feel like it’s so shameful to say, but I haven’t read every Narnia novel. I believe I’ve read 3 but I never continued. I REALLY want to finish these!
The Splintered trilogy by A.G. Howard // Again, a recent read. I finally gave in to the hype and read Splintered, the first book in the trilogy. I LOVED IT. So I’ll definitely continue soon.
The Fire and Thorns trilogy by Rae Carson // I started this trilogy in 2015 as well and I’ve read book #1 and book #3. So I only need to read The Bitter Kingdom to finish this trilogy. Honestly guys, this trilogy is amazing, I highly recommend it.
