Just the beginning: Series I need to Finish

I’m starting to wonder if I have separation anxiety and thats why I have so many series unfinished.


Hello my lovely readers, writers, and bloggers alike! It’s been a while since I’ve done a casual chatty post and now I have some things to say. Lately I have been thinking about all the books on my TBR pile that is so high it’s beginning to resemble the Leaning Tower of Pisa. As it turns out a lot of these books are within a series; which quickly made me realise how many I haven’t actually finished.

We’ve all been there waiting for the next book in a series when the time of reading to release just gets way too long and either we forget what’s happened or have moved on to different books in-between. If i’m being completely honest; more often then not I already own the next book and every time I see it on my shelf I get shifty eyes and pretend I don’t see it staring at me in waiting. Well, no more! Today I am making the pledge to write a list of all the series I have yet to finish so I can officially challenge myself to read them. If you’re like me and are sneakily avoiding certain books then I encourage you to partake in this challenge too! Let me know in the comments if you do; i’d love to know what books you still have to get through.

Ok, here goes nothing. Here is my official list of series I intend to finish in 2020.

  1. Throne of Glass, Sarah J. Maas
  2. An Ember in the Ashes, Sabaa Tahir
  3. Red Queen, Victoria Aveyard
  4. The Raven Cycle, Maggie Stiefvater
  5. The Dark Divine, Bree Despain
  6. Shadow and Bone, Leigh Bardugo
  7. The Body Finder, Kimberly Derting

However, with this being said there are also a few series that I have decided I will not be finishing. This is not to say that I didn’t enjoy the books I have read but more that I don’t see myself as invested in taking them to the finish line. I have already mentioned in my DNF post that I am trying to learn that by not completing books, or in this cases series, actually allows me time to read more books that I have zero doubts about. Some of these books just weren’t what I wanted them to be, I grew out of them, or in some cases the ending was spoilt and I wasn’t keen in the direction they were being taken. So here goes my list of series I won’t be continuing.

  1. The Chemical Garden, Lauren, DeStefano
  2. House of Night, P.C and Kristin Cast
  3. Divergent, Veronica Roth
  4. The Maze Runner, James Dashner
  5. The Darkest Minds, Alexandra Bracken
  6. Caraval, Stephanie Garber

Let me know what you think about my lists, and of course your series you want to finish. And of course; happy reading!
