Top Ten Tuesday {13}





This is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  Every week there is a different top ten topic.  You can find the list of topics here, both past and upcoming.  This week is:

Top Ten Series I Haven't Finished {because either you didn't like them, you just have procrastinated, etc.}
{And anyone who has a good argument for me to finish any of these series, I would be glad to hear it!}

1. The House of Night series by PC Cast and Kristin Cast.  I really enjoyed the first few books in this series, the middle few were good {not great}, and the last few I've suffered through.  I actually put down the most recent one I acquired because I couldn't stand the cheesiness of the whole thing {that was Awakened}.

2. The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clair.  Yes, I have all of them up that have been published so far, but I haven't read the most recent one.  I thought it ended beautifully as a trilogy, and the fourth book was quite the disappointment to me.  So I'm a little wary about spending my time reading the next {even though its sitting on one of my shelves downstairs!}

3. Thirst by Christopher Pike.  Now, this one was purely because I had other books that were "higher up" on my to-read list than these.  I even picked up Thirst No. 4 at Powells with many good intentions to read these {the ones I've read are really interesting!}.  At some point in time it will happen...

4. The Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris.  Honestly, I just have to be in the right mood to read these.  And I don't seem to stay in that mood long enough to just finish these!

5. The Looking Glass Wars trilogy by Frank Beddor.  Again, highly enjoyable {and easy reads}, but I just haven't finished them!

6. The Fallen series by Lauren Kate.  I enjoyed the first two, and have the third on my shelf, but these haven't really been my cup of tea... maybe I'll get around to finishing them...

7. The Lorien Legacies by Pittacus Lore.  I've picked up The Power of Six several times from my library, and I just can't get into it.  Maybe its because whenever I think of I Am Number Four, I remember the movie and not the book.  And I did not like the movie.

8. The Luxe series by Anna Godbersen.  I ate up the first three, but after the ending of the third I really didn't want to pick up the last one... I did, but I never actually read it before I had to return it to the library.  Now, just thinking about it makes me want to finish it.

9. The Chemical Garden series by Lauren DeStefano.  I read the first one for a couple reasons: the cover is beautiful and the story sounded really interesting.  But I just had a hard time getting into the book itself, much less really wanting to read any of he others.  Which makes me a little sad because the story line for the series sounds so promising, but I just can't seem to read them!


Okay, so I only had 9 out of 10... and I actually though I wasn't going to have very many for this list!  I'd love to see the series you have yet to finish!  Maybe I can convince you to give one another chance ;-)

I haven't read City of Lost Souls, either. I thought TMI was a wonderful trilogy, and wasn't in love with City of Fallen Angels. I do plan on reading City of Lost Souls, but I just haven't gotten to it. I actually wish Cassandra Clare would write something NOT shadowhunter. I'm just ready for her to write something new.

Here's my TTT

I just got City of Fallen Angels at the library this week! And I was SO disappointed in The Luxe Series once it ended,

Ok...AMEN on your comment about House of Night! That's exactly how I feel about the series.

I too felt that The Mortal Instruments was complete after book 3 and was disappointed with book 4, but I felt book 5 redeemed everything for me.

And agree with the Fallen series too.

Other than that, I don't think I've read any of the other series that you've listed.

Ah Sookie Stackhouse! Another series I haven't finished either! And, I love Christopher Pike, but I haven't read those yet!
