A lot of you seemed to enjoy my first post on Series I Won’t Finish I wrote last week. So I thought I’d continue the trend with part 2! Here are 5 more series I don’t plan on finishing (ever).
#1: Someone Else’s Fairytale by E.M. Tippetts
What I read: Break It Up (#2.5)
Okay, I won this in a Goodreads giveaway, and didn’t know it was part of a series before I read it. This is one of those romance companion series though, so I didn’t need to read the first 2 books to be able to follow. I read and reviewed it and while I thought it was okay, there was just nothing that special about it. I have no need to read any of the other books.
#2: Study by Maria V. Snyder
What I read: Poison Study (#1)
I know this is like a YA fantasy classic. And many people adore this book. I did enjoy it, but I didn’t love it. At this point in time, I can no longer remember anything more than what the synopsis tells me. I just wasn’t really captivated by it, and I don’t think I’ll be continuing. Plus, I really wasn’t a fan of the romance in this book. And I think I’m the only one.
#3: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
What I read: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (#1)
I read this when the Booktube hype around this book was so high, and I just found it disappointing. It’s not a bad story, but it just wasn’t creepy. Or as good as everyone said it was. I think this is a case of the hype ruining a story for me. I was just expecting so much more. I don’t think I’ll ever finish the series, as I have no interest in finding out what happens.
#4: Chaos Walking by Patrick Ness
What I read: The Knife of Never Letting Go (#1)
I feel like I’m the only person in the community who is not a fan of this book. In fact, I haven’t read any of his other works, because I’m afraid his writing style just may not work for me. First of all, this book almost gave me a headache. There is just TOO MUCH going on. It’s chaos. (Ha, see what I did there?) It really wasn’t for me, and I didn’t really enjoy the main character, Todd, either. But mostly, I think it’s just the writing. The sentences are so long, because you’re reading a stream of consciousness, and I truly couldn’t deal with it. I couldn’t keep up!
#5: The 100 by Kass Morgan
What I read: The Hundred (#1)
I’m a big fan of the TV show, even though I’m so behind and have barely watched any episodes of the new season. I love the show far more than the book -which is something I don’t say often. I was so confused in this book at first, because of the many switching POVs. Plus, I like the characters and their development far more in the TV show. I feel like they are really different.
Those are 5 more series I won’t be finishing. I’m sorry if I shocked anyone with my choices today, but oh well. I hope you know that I’m not saying these books are horrible, or the authors are. They just weren’t for me. Have you read any of these books or series? What did you think of them?
