Q: Have you broken up with a series? If so which one and why?
Several. Happens to me a little more often than I like actually because it can be hard to keep my attention with some of them (middle book syndrome, anyone?).
I don’t really count the ones where I just read the first book to see what it was like and then didn’t continue though.
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick -- Okay. I really did like the first book of this series. Albeit some nitpicks with the characters, it was a total guilty pleasure. I was excited when I grabbed book two. Except, I ended up really disliking the second book so much that I just haven’t bothered with the rest of the books since. So I’m not interested at all to continue.
Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine -- Loved those books hardcore. They’re FUN. I’ve read, I think, five of them? But I haven’t picked up any more since in the last year and a half and haven’t really had the desire. I think I kind of lost my interest after the last one. Wasn’t bad though!
Sookie Stackhouse -- Lost its steam for me after #7, though I read up to #10. That and I just really got into the show by that point. Lol. I’m still planning to read the rest of them eventually, but I’m not in a big rush. I pretty much call this a “series separation” rather than a break-up.
House of Night -- I tried. I’m surprised I even made it through two whole books.
If you count a spin-off break-up: I broke up with The Iron Fey series the moment the spin-off started. I haven't even attempted to read the spin-off, and don't think I will. I love The Iron Fey series. Ash and Puck, come on! Yeah! :) But I don't have the desire to read about Ethan at all. *shrugs* I guess that's just me. So I'm skipping it and reminiscing on the original 4-book series, and also enjoying Kagawa's new Blood of Eden series.
What are some of your break-ups?
Have a wonderful bookish weekend!
