20 book series I want to finish reading…. or not

Hi friends! I have a confession to make: book series and I aren’t necessarily in the very best terms. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s easier to pick up a standalone than a book series, or because, no matter how GOOD a book might be, I’m slightly terrified that their sequels won’t live up to the hype.

All of this to say: I have A LOT of book series on my TBR.

Some I haven’t even started just yet, but really want to. Some others I have started, but haven’t gotten around to completing just yet. Some others I’m waiting impatiently to release… and will most likely read it a gazillion years later, because, well. Aerm.

There are some other series I’ve thought about giving up on.

Today, my blog post is all about this. The series I want to continue, will continue, commit myself to the task because these books are GOOD and deserve to be finished. I’ll also mention the series I’m thinking of giving up on, because, well, can’t do it all and these don’t appeal to me anymore. Sometimes, we need to be strict. Also, please don’t judge me.

πŸ“š Book series on my TBR I want to finish – the already released ones

This category will contain all the series that are completed… but that I just haven’t completed just yet.

The Reader, Traci Chee

Why I want to read it πŸ”Ž I’ve mentioned this series a whole damn lot lately, but… I really love it. I loved the first two books very much, it’s unique, original, addictive and I can’t wait to see how it all ends. READ this awesome series, friends. Please.

Am I Normal Yet?, Holly Bourne

Why I want to read it πŸ”Ž YAY a contemporary series on this list! I loved Am I Normal Yet? so much and I’ve been meaning to read the next books in the series for quite some time, now. I love these characters, the talk about mental health, this group of friends. Definitely recommending it.

This Mortal Coil, Emily Suvada

Why I want to read it πŸ”Ž I was kind of obsessed with This Mortal Coil when I first read it, which is… well, surprising given that I don’t read a lot of sci-fi. But everything about this, the twists and turns, the characters, the world, made me SCREAM and… I don’t know why I haven’t picked up these next books just yet.

The Belles, Dhonielle Clayton

Why I want to read it πŸ”ŽΒ  I really enjoyed the first book in The Belles series, despite its problematic elements and I’m still curious enough about the world to want to know what happens in the second book of this duology!

πŸ“– read my full review of the belles

This Savage Song, V. Schwab

Why I want to read it πŸ”Ž This Savage Song‘s second book, Our Dark Duet, has been on my TBR forever and I need to read it… soon. But I got spoiled and know how it ends so I’m a tiny bit frustrated about it. Still, I’ll read it someday, I swear I will.

πŸ“– read my full review of this savage song

 

Legend, Marie Lu

Why I want to read it πŸ”Ž I’ve read Legend a… long time ago and I remember enjoying it and being really curious about what would happen next. Then, I don’t know, other books came on and I didn’t make Legend a priority anymore. But I really want to. I know some friends who really love this series and I want to love it too!

 

The Star-Touched Queen, Roshani Chokshi

Why I want to read it πŸ”Ž I really enjoyed this first book, despite its confusing moments, and I’ve heard great things about the second book in this duology, A Crown of Wishes. I’ve heard it’s even better than this first book, so I have to be curious!

πŸ“– read my full review of the star touched queen

πŸ“š Book series I want to finish reading – the uncompleted ones

This category contains series that are currently in the works (as of February, 2020).

We Set The Dark On Fire, Tehlor Kay Mejia

Why I want to read it πŸ”Ž I AM SCREAMING OKAY this book this book THIS BOOK made me fall in love and I am SO PUMPED for my preorder copy to arrive and to read it right away. It’s a stunningly written story, with great badass main characters and I can’t wait to know what happens next.

πŸ“– read my full review of we set the dark on fire

The Gilded Wolves, Roshani Chokshi

Why I want to read it πŸ”Ž I’m really excited for this sequel to be released as well! I really enjoyed The Gilded Wolves, its world and its adventures and ESPECIALLY the cast of characters and I can’t wait to be back with them!

πŸ“– read my full review of The Gilded wolves

Impostors, Scott Westerfeld

Why I want to read it πŸ”Ž I love the Uglies series, I really liked this first book set in the same world and I’m most definitely going to be reading every upcoming book as well. Once obsessed, always obsessed, okay.

 

Shatter Me, Tahereh Mafi

Why I want to read it πŸ”Ž There was a time where I was obsessed with this series… now I think that somehow I have calmed down a little bit. I’m up to the Restore Me book, and if I’m curious to see what happens next, I’m also nervous because I’ve read so many mixed reviews about the next book…

 

An Ember in the Ashes, Sabaa Tahir

Why I want to read it πŸ”Ž Another series I really, really enjoy, but haven’t completed just yet. For my defense: this series is like, INTENSE. I was almost out of breath after completing A Torch Against the Night and I really need to be ready to handle A Reaper At The Gates. That being said… I still can’t wait.

 

The Becoming of Noah Shaw, Michelle Hodkin

Why I want to read it πŸ”ŽΒ  I adore the Mara Dyer series so damn much…. but I felt underwhelmed by The Becoming of Noah Shaw, to be honest. It was lacking the intense feelings I got while reading Mara Dyer. Still, after thinking about this for a while, I feel like I still WANT to continue on with this series and know what happens next.

 

πŸ“š Book series on my TBR I’m not so sure I’ll finish… like, ever.

Mirage, Somaiya Daud

Why I don’t want to read it πŸ”Ž Mirage wasn’t a bad book, at all, in fact I remember enjoying the ride when I went on it, liking the world and especially the characters. That being said, right now, I don’t feel that deep need to continue with this series. Sorry, Mirage.

πŸ“– read my full review of mirage

 

The Girl From Everywhere, Heidi Heilig

Why I don’t want to read it πŸ”Ž I liked this first book, I really did, it was unique and original and I really appreciated that. But it’s been so many years since I’ve read it, I kind of lost any interest in going on with it.

πŸ“– read my full review of the girl from everywhere

 

Children of Blood and Bone, Tomi Adeyemi

Why I don’t want to read it πŸ”Ž Same here…. I liked this book when I read it, I understand the hype surrounding it, too. This is a book I’d definitely recommend, but getting on the sequel isn’t a priority at all.

 

Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Laini Taylor

Why I don’t want to read it πŸ”Ž Daughter of Smoke and Bone was an enjoyable read, if a little bit confusing at times. I liked the Prague setting and originality of it even if I wasn’t on board with everything. I feel like I’d be more interested in giving up on this series and picking up Strange The Dreamer, by this author.

πŸ“– read my full review of daughter of smoke and bone

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Ransom Riggs

Why I don’t want to read it πŸ”Ž Miss Peregrine was… well, it was quite an average read for me, to be completely honest. I read my review from when I read it and it was quite okay, but if you ask me now… I don’t remember anything particular about this story, meaning that it wasn’t too remarkable, therefore… bye. Sorry.

 

The Cruel Prince, Holly Black

Why I don’t want to read it πŸ”Ž I…. DO NOT SCREAM AT ME JUST YET okay. This category is here for series I’m not sure I’ll read, but this can, might change. I’ve heard mixed reviews about the sequels for this series and, if I liked The Cruel Prince, I wasn’t in love with it like everyone else. So, for now, the rest of the series is a maybe.

πŸ“– read my full review of the cruel prince

Caraval, Stephanie Garber

Why I don’t want to read it πŸ”Ž Caraval is another really hyped book and… well, I found it entertaining, but I wasn’t as obsessed with it as other readers were, so the sequels aren’t really on my radar.

  4. “Am I Normal Yet” is one I’ve had on my TBR list for WAY too long — I really need to read it this year. I got “Mirage” in an OwlCrate sometime ago and never read it … I don’t know if the series is completely out yet, so I was waiting on that (I think) ha-ha!

    “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” is a book series that I’ve been CONTEMPLATING reading — but I don’t know yet. I’ve heard good things, but I just hate getting into a series that I’m later disappointed with lol!

    I feel you with “The Cruel Prince” … I REALLY don’t know if I want to get into that series. Same with “Caraval” — because I want to love it but I don’t know if I will … I think I’ll end up reading “Caraval” though ha-ha!

    Great post!

      I'm glad I'm not the only one a little on the fence about the cruel prince! it's so hyped, the first book was good, but I wasn't head over heels with it either. I might be missing out on something here hahaha.

  5. I quit almost every series I start. I think the books often go downhill after the first one, and then I get disappointed. That’s what happened with Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I LOVED the first one and considered DNFing the last one. I do want to try The Cruel Prince and An Ember in the Ashes. I want to know what the hype is about.

  6. the only book series in this series that I have started to read and not finish is the uglies series! I got through the first book, loved it, and never bought the second one. A book series that I have yet to finish was the vampire academy series. I was obsessed. It was finals week in college, and instead of spending my time studying I finished 5 of the books. It was terribleeee. I was so obsessed. When I finally finished the 5th book, I didn’t pick up the 6th one and actually studied. The crazy part was that I never ended up picking up the book again! I still am yet to finish the series and it’s been at least 3 years! Great post Marie xxx

  7. I was just talking with a friend recently about how I’ve started quite a few series, but haven’t gotten around to the sequels. An Ember in the Ashes is one we share. Some others whose sequels I still need (and want) to read include The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan, and The Black Prism by Black Weeks. I read The Cruel Prince and its sequels; it took me over a year to get started on The Wicked King because it’s hard for me to get back into a series after leaving it for a year. It ended up being my favorite book in the trilogy.

  11. Hi Marie,
    I’m in the same boat as you. There are some series that I am itching to finish, however there are other ones that I’m not as enthusiastic about. It’s definitely up to you which series you want to continue or not- life is too short to read books that we’re not too excited about, especially since there are so many other books that we ARE interested in! I ended up finishing the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series, and although I enjoyed it at the time, the series didn’t leave much of an impression on me (and to be honest I don’t remember much about it haha.) On the other hand I am very curious about Shatter Me (haven’t even started this series yet!)

  12. The only series I’ve finished in this is the Holly Black Folk of the Air ones. I finished them very recently along with Grisha series. I’d taken a long break from books before picking up these two so I was not going to give up that easy. And I liked both of them well enough.

    Uglies and Shatter Me on the other hand are books I read when I was eating up books by the second. I was almost about to burn out at the point. So with that in mind, I have to say, at that time, I was totally not impressed with Uglies. Shatter Me, when I started, I thought it was a trilogy and so I read the first 3 books and it was okay – but I kinda decided that things ended there for me.. so after learning there are more books, I don’t know if I’ll ever pick it up.

    But yeah sometimes I do have the habit of putting series on the backburner, I think I always get drawn in by new books haha!!
    I also used to think that I had to read every series I started but now I’m like nope, I don’t need to do that at all!!

    I see plenty of series I need to start on this list like We Set The Dark On Fire, Children of Blood and Bone, The Gilded Wolves and This Savage Song. I hope the sequels you want to read live up to your expectation and you love them.

  18. Ahh, so far This Mortal Coil is my favorite book of the year, and I’m so, so excited to continue with the series, because I know that the rest of the books will be EPIC.
    and I finished the This Savage Song duology, but sadly, I was super disappointed by Our Dark Duet. I know that some people really loved it, but I feel like Our Dark Duet lacked the spark of the first book. Beware though, the ending of the duology is…. a lot, regardless of whether you like the book or not, haha
    AAA, WE SET THE DARK ON FIRE!! yes!! I’m super excited to read We Unleash the Merciless Storm, because I’ve heard such good thngs about it, and it’s from CARMEN’S POV. Also, the cover is so pretty and green, I love it ahhhh.
    As for Shatter Me, I’m one of the very few people who think that the original trilogy peaked at Unravel Me, and I was super disappointed by Ignite Me. I’m the only one who thinks that though. But I think a lot of people will agree with me that the new trilogy is pretty disappointing, and not really worth your time :/

  20. I feel like I’d put all but one or two of the series I haven’t finished in the I Have No Plans on Finishing category. I think over time I usually lose interest in a series, especially since I usually reread the previous books before continuing on. There are quite a few books including This Savage Song or Warcross, which I had plans on finishing, and then after it didn’t happen for a while, I just gave up. I think part of my willingness to give up on series so easily is because I rarely enjoy finales, so I know that the only joy I’ll get from reading the last book in a series is the satisfaction of completing something, which isn’t something that I really need, to be honest.

    That being said, I still try out new series every now and then. What I’m trying to do now is not start a series until it’s already ended, or until the last book is getting released in the next few months. That way I can binge the books without the need to reread, and I can get the general consensus on how the finale panned out before I even start it! I haven’t actually done this yet, but I think that’s what I’m going to do with Call Down the Hawk. I want to wait until right before the last book is getting released before I start in on the series. I just feel like I’ll enjoy the reading experience more that way. Hopefully this new plan works out! I guess only time will tell!

    1. Oh I can understand that perfectly. There are series I was SO fond of, but then I didn’t continue on for so long and…. just lost the interest I had in it altogether.

      Oh that’s so good! It’s a great strategy. I don’t ever binge read series, but starting a series I know I won’t have to wait for the sequels, is probably a great strategy!
      I hope your new plan will work out great! πŸ™‚

  21. The Spinster Club series just gets better the further you go on!!!! I definitely recommend reading further!!!! It was the first lot of truly feminist books I ever read and convincing my cousin to read them was how I got her back into reading again.

  22. Oh wow I think all of these are on my TBR besides a few which I’ve already read. I definitely want to read the Reader series soon but I’ve mentioned that before. I have The Star Touched Queen on my Kindle as well and definitely need to get to it soon. And An Ember In The Ashes is definitely a series that I plan to prioritize if I ever manage to return to reading like I want to. Although I’m totally reading Queen Of Nothing first as I can’t believe I haven’t read the final yet. I loved both books but I have seen a few people say they weren’t fussed on the first one but enjoyed the second so if you do decide to carry on with it I hope you enjoy book two more. I have so many series to finish this year if possible. It’s just been so long since I started them that I need to re-read the first books to refresh my memories.

    1. Ahh I hope you’ll love all of these books, I can’t wait to continue with the reader and the ember in the ashes series! πŸ™‚
      I get that. It always takes me time to get to series, and by the time I have the next books, I forgot everything about the previous ones hahaha.
