Top Ten Tuesday (18)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted at The Broke and the Bookish.

This week’s topic:
Top Ten Series I Haven't Finished (because either you didn't like them, you just have procrastinated, etc.

1. Gemma Doyle (Libba Bray) --I enjoyed the first book, but for some reason haven’t got around to picking up the rest of the series. It’s been a couple years since I’ve read the first, too, so I would probably have to re-read for a refresher and I admit that I feel a little lazy about that right now.    

2. Uglies (Scott Westerfeld) --I didn’t really like it enough to continue though I have the second book on my shelf. I think I got them both at the same time at some book sale. I keep telling myself I might give it another chance though since it’s been a few years and my reading tastes have changed a bit. I did read Uglies before I really got into a lot of Dystopian/Sci-Fi type books. So maybe another chance sometime on that one.

3. The Mortal Instruments (Cassandra Clare) --Holy crap, I know! I’m probably the only person who hasn’t read it. Once again, that’s another one where I just read the first book. And I really didn’t see the appeal. I haven’t decided if I’m going to try and continue or not. I have a few friends who are big fans and I totally get it. Maybe not for me? The movie cast looks pretty great though, I admit. Jonathan Rhys Meyers, anyone? Hello!

4. Blue Bloods (Melissa de la Cruz) -- I love, love, love this series. I strayed away for a bit though due to a hectic schedule. I’ve read up to Misguided Angel, which is book five. I think there’s only one book left. I just haven’t got around to picking it up. Plan to do that soon.

5. The Shadow Falls series (C.C. Hunter)-- adored Born at Midnight, book one. Book three is out by now, with a soon-to-be release of book four. I’m so behind. Ugh. I do have book two on my shelf FINALLY waiting to be read so hopefully I can get back into this series.

6. Hush, Hush series (Becca Fitzpatrick)-- I’m actually a fan. Hey, I’m entitled to my guilty pleasures. Don’t judge me. :p I’ve read the first two books, but I guess I just haven’t bothered with the other two yet. I will eventually, I’m sure.

7. Fallen series (Lauren Kate) -- nope. Read the first book, hated it, not wasting my time with the rest.

8. The Dark Swan series and Succubus series (Richelle Mead) -- both of these. With Dark Swan, I’ve read two of the books, but they’re so freaking hard to find unless I order online. I try to not order online unless it’s a last resort kind of thing (shipping, end up paying as much as a book sometimes), but it looks like that’s what I’m going to have to break down and finally do if I want to ever finish this series. With the Succubus series, I think I just lost interest. I read the first book, and while it was pretty good, it wasn’t her best work for me in my opinion, so I didn’t continue with that one.

9. Shiver (Maggie Stiefvater) -- Love Maggie, loved Scorpio Races…was not a fan of Shiver so I decided not to continue with this series after reading.

10. House of Night (P.C. & Kristin Cast)-- absolutely awful.

What’s your top ten?



  1. Hi! Pixie, can I do this too on my blog? Then i can just go back here and send you the link on my post. this is an interesting Top 10 to do :)

    1. Well of course you can do it on your blog! It's not my meme. You can find the weekly topics at The Broke and Bookish (http://brokeandbookish.blogspot.com) and a bunch of bloggers participate. ^^ I'd love to see your list too! :)


  2. What?! TMI? Seriously? That's series is a definition of awesomeness! LOL. And I haven't finish The Fallen Series too.

    Fara @ Tumbling In Books

  3. Gemma Doyle - I was bored by the first book, and didn't make it through book two. However, I own the first two and am determined to try again, since I really liked Beauty Queens.

    Uglies - I didn't love them, but they were worth reading, I felt.

    TMI - I stopped after book four. I just don't like them enough to continue.

    Shiver - I DNFed Forever.

    Succubus Series - Oh yeah, I need to finish that. It's at my library.

    House of Night - Gross.

    Others - haven't read.

  4. Hush, Hush and Fallen are both on my list, I thought Fallen was overhyped and I didn't love it. Hush, Hush was okay but I'm just not pressed to keep reading.

    Need - didn't love, thought it had a lot of probs in execution
    Shatter Me - didn't turn out to be what I expected, stopped reading
    Dearly, Departed - didn't hold my interest
    The Iron Witch - stopped within chapter one

  5. I've broken up with Richelle Mead, I DNFed too many of her series. It's not that they awful but I just lose interest. House of Night I couldn't finish either. PC Cast isn't for me, I tried both her adult and YA titles and no. Great list. My Top Ten Tuesday

  6. The worst is when it's been a couple of years since you read a book in the series. Then it's like you don't remember a thing!! Here is my list: Angela's Anxious Life


  7. Well, my list could have been very similiar to yours. HON was my #1 - Could not get past Shiver, have read the first 2 in the Dark Swan but need to catch up, love Blue Bloods, but I'm at least one book behind and Keys to the Repository, which I think they didn't really put in the series count?
