Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope your week has been swell and you’re reading everything you want! I wanted to come up here and talking about series I won’t be finishing. I got this idea from Trina from Between Chapters. She’s an awesome Youtuber, so make sure you go and subscribe to her channel.
I know we have all started a series and read maybe one or two of it and decided we just can’t go on or you feel like it shouldn’t be a series and one book was enough for you. When going through my Goodreads, I notice I have a lot of series I will not be finishing so I narrowed it down to 10.
The first on this list is Wytches, Vol. 1 by Scott Snyder. This is a graphic novel and if you look at my Goodreads you know I love graphic novels and anything scary, which this is. But I just couldn’t get into it. The art work was beautiful but the story just wasn’t there for me. I know many people love this series and if you do that’s great, but for me in fell flat.
Number two on the list is The Haunting of Sunshine Girl series by Paige McKenzie. I won the first book in a Goodreads giveaway and was so excited. I started it right away and loved the first half and then it just got bad. It started to not make sense and I ended up giving it3 stars, which was generous. I have thought about picking up the second one but I have so many books I want to get to and I know I will like, I’m not wasting my time on it.
The third series is Landry Park by Bethany Hagen. I had high hopes for this and it was terrible! I mean I honestly don’t care about any of the characters or what happens to them.
I am putting four and five together because they are by the same author. I will talk about the book I love first. The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden by Jessica Sorenson, I read this book in one sitting, I cried and laughed and had ll the feels. It is such a beautiful book but when I picked up the second one it just wasn’t the same for me. I am so sad that this series is on this list :(. Now her other series I started I hated from the get-go. The Secret of Ella and Micha, this is just one hot mess rolled up and put into another hot mess. I have no words for it.
The sixth series is The Chemical Garden by Lauren DeStefano. I actually liked the first book and I liked the way it ended. I don’t feel like I need more from it and that’s why I am not reading the second one.
Seventh series is The Wicked + The Divine by Kieron Gillen. This is another very popular graphic novel series and even tho the first volume was enjoyable I just don’t care about it enough to keep reading it.
Almost done, the eighth series is the Alienated by Melissa Landers. I really liked the first book and gave it 4.5 stars and when I read the second one I gave it 2 stars, so yea I don’t think I will read the last one.
And the last series on this list is the Vampire Queen by Rebecca Maizel. The first book in this series is Infinite Days and it was good. I gave it 4 stars and it ended perfectly for me, so I see no reason to go on to the 2nd one.
Those are my top 10 series that I won’t be finishing. Let me know in the comments or on twitter what series you are quitting.
