This is my first time writing a “Top Ten Tuesday” post and I’m so excited!
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Series I’ve Given Up on/ Series I’d Like To Finish Someday.
So I’m a bit ashamed of this, but I have a lot of series that I like (and sometimes love too) that I just didn’t finish.
Series scare me a little bit, especially when they’re more than two books because I’m so bad at reading series I just stop even if I love the books.
Series I’d Like To Finish (someday…)
1. Shades Of Magic by V.E. Schwab
I loved the first book and the beginning of the second too! But then I just stopped, probably got into a reading slump, and know I’m still debating if I should skim the pages I already read or just start where I left, meanwhile I keep procrastinating.
2. Women Are Some Kind Of Magic by Amanda Lovelace
I read the “The Princess saves Herself In this One” so I’ll definitely continue reading Amanda Lovelace’s poetry!
3. Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy by Douglass Adams
So this is a series my dad recommended me and to be honest it doesn’t really intrigue me. But I’m sure I want to finish at least this series for him!
4. The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman
This is a great series, I loved the first book and I still have to buy the second book (even if I don’t know how I recovered from the ending of the first).
5. Queen Of Kenosha by Howard Shapiro
I recently reviewed this comic and I really liked it but this time it’s the author fault, he still hasn’t published or set a publication date!
-> this is the main reason why I hate series: THE WAIT
6. Inspector Montalbano by Andrea Camilleri
I LOVE these books and they’re a lot. I used to watch every single episode of the tv show over and over just because I love the stories. So I’ll definitely end this series.
7. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
Again, I really liked the first book, but I still have to buy the next one.
8. Miss Marple by Agatha Christie
I really like mysteries and I enjoy Agatha Christie’s writing, so I’m going to slowly finish this series as well, I hope 🙂
9. Poirot by Agatha Christie
Same thing as Miss Marple, I think they’re all worth reading.
10. Lord Of The Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
Ok, this I’m probably not going to read it soon, but I hope I’ll be ready to finish this series one day!

I like series up to 3 books after it freaks me out! WHY SO MANY BOOKS? We are never safe that it’ll always be good! and we can’t give up in the middle. I like to read Lord of The Rings, though my copy is so big it scares. Oh, and the 5th Wave that waits on my bookshelf!

I haven’t even started the Shades of Magic yet 🙂 but I have the first book so I think I will start soon. And I have like one book left from the Hitchhiker’s Guide. It somehow kept going downhill as the series went and I just didn’t read the last one. Hope you get to finish The Illuminae Files soon because it was an amazing series 🙂

I really liked the film adaptation of “The 5th Wave,” but don’t think I’ll read the books. But never say never… or so that’s what they say. 😀
Someday I might like to read a Miss Marple book since I love the Masterpiece adaptations.
Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland. It’s great to meet you, and I look forward to visiting your blog, and all the bookish talk. 🙂

Welcome to the fabulous fun that is Top Ten Tuesday!! I hope if you join the meme again, you continue to enjoy.
I haven’t read any of the 5th Wave books, but did – much to my surprise, really like the film. Still, I don’t see myself picking up the books because I liked the direction the film took, and that seems enough for me. 🙂

I read the first ADSOM book too and soooo need to complete that series ASAP! Same for Illuminae. I can’t imagine what Gemina and Obsidio are like. Nice list! 😀

Oh my gosh finish Shades of Magic and Hitchhiker’s Guide. Both are so much fun in different ways!

I really need to START both A Darker Shade of Magic and Illuminae! I even own two copies of the latter, and they’re just waiting to be read. D: On the other hand, I wasn’t a fan of The 5th Wave at all, so I know I won’t be finishing that one. D:

I love the Shades of Magic series, so recommend you revisit that one. I actually reread the first two before diving into the last and don’t regret doing so.
