One of the hazards of reading quite a bit, is that you come across series you have no interest in finishing. I’ve written 3 posts about this before (part 1, part 2 and part 3) and you all seemed to really like them. So here I am again, with 5 more series I don’t want to finish.
To be honest, I could apparently keep this series going on for quite a while, because I have about 50 series I don’t want to finish, and I’ve only mentioned 20 (these 5 included). Would you be interested in that?
#1: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
What I’ve read: The 5th Wave
I read this book 3 years ago, when I started to get back into reading and this one had recently been released. I really enjoyed it at the time because I gave it 5 stars. Yet I know that after all that time and reading I’ve done since, I won’t enjoy it as much. And to be honest, because of the time that has passed already, I have lost all attachment to the characters and story line. I may watch the movie though.
#2: Reboot by Amy Tintera
What I’ve read: Reboot
This is actually only a duology, so it wouldn’t be too much of a hassle to finish it. But again, I read the first book 3 years ago. I barely remember anything, and I don’t feel like re-reading this one first. I did enjoy it back in 2013 because I gave it 5 stars. I feel like 2013/2014 was the true time for dystopian books like this one (and the 5th wave above) and I read many of them. Now though, I don’t really care for them all that much -and don’t read them often. I guess I’m over saturated with dystopians?
#3: Grover Beach Team by Anna Katmore
What I’ve read: Play With Me
Another book I read in 2013! I remember this being a cute contemporary romance about football (soccer if you prefer). Which I guess you could all also get from the cover… In my Goodreads review, I wrote that it was cute but way too short (it’s only like 200 pages). I do like my sports romances, but I prefer to read them in a NA version these days? Plus, this series now has like 6 books in it, which is just too big of an investment for me.
#4: Ransom by Rachel Schurig
What I’ve read: Ransom
I actually read this last year, so it’s not as much of an “old read” as the others have been. To be honest, I was kind of “meh” on this read. I gave it 3 stars. It was fine, but nothing amazing. I’ve read a lot of NA I think, so when a book is just okay and not blowing me away, I don’t tend to finish the series.
#5: Scott Pilgrim by Bryan Lee O’Malley
When I read this in 2013, I think I kind of felt pressured to like it. It’s such a popular graphic novel series! And I mention on Goodreads that I enjoyed it. Yet looking back on it, I remember thinking his relationships were really weird, and I wasn’t attached to him as a character either. I won’t be continuing this series, even though most people really love it.
So those are 5 more series I won’t be continuing/finishing. Have you read any of these? Did you like them? Let me know! (P.S. Would you be interested in seeing more posts like this?)
