I’m kind of horrid with series. I will read a book, love it, promise to read the sequel and the next books afterward, then forget about this promise because often I find another book I’d rather read. Sometimes it’s because it’s an UNFINISHED series and I then forget about the sequels when they come out a year later. Often this is because I read what I’m in the mood to read. There are very few times where I will read books in the same series consecutively.
Anyway, I’ve read too many “book one” books in series. A bunch of them are unfinished and many others are books in series that I don’t plan on continuing. In any case, these are the finished series I kind of want to continue–though with my pace, it’s going to take a while, lol.
Ten Finished Series I Have YET to Finish
Fables by Bill Willingham – The last issue came out this year, and the final volume, Fables #22: Farewell, has been up for grabs since July. I love this fairy tale series, though I had been hoping it’d finally end. I don’t think I could take another disaster happening to some of my favorite characters!
Unwind by Neal Shusterman – You know, I didn’t even know that Unwind was only the first book of a series! The book was super-creepy and is still by far one of my favorite dystopias to date. I should probably read the rest of this dystology at some point.
Parasol Protectorate by Gail Carriger – I’m still on the fence about reading the rest of the series, only because I’m not sure anything can top my fondness for <i>Soulless</i>. Still, steampunk and werewolves and vampires, oh my!
Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan – This series is loooooooooooooooong. I can only handle so much epic fantasy before I lose my mind. I will try to read at least one a year, but no promises there, considering I did sign up to read quite a number of epic fantasy books that I haven’t delivered yet.
Grisha by Leigh Bardugo – No excuse here, really. I have the entire trilogy now so I really should get up on this series and finish it.
Sevenwaters by Juliet Marillier – At first I thought this was a trilogy, which was okay, fine. Turns out there are six books in total here. Not that I HAVE to continue the series, considering each book looks like a standalone since each story deals with a different female from the Sevenwaters family.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor – Also no excuse to not having read the rest of this trilogy. Well, actually, I don’t have the other two books yet, so maybe that’s what’s stopping me. Somewhat.
Maze Runner by James Dashner – I mean to reread the first book and then finish the rest of the trilogy before I watch the second movie. There are also two prequels (one coming out in 2016) for this book, but I’m not counting them as part of the original series.
Marcus Didius Falco by Lindsey Davis – I got pretty far into this series, though it is rather difficult to get paperback copies of the books these days. The first few books were easy enough, since they were re-issued, but the others are a bit more difficult. I love this historical mystery, though, especially when the Roman main character is hilarious as hell.
Fablehaven by Brandon Mull – Gaaah. I always pass this series by when I head to Books of Wonder, but I don’t know why I never bother to read the rest. Maybe I’ll actually put it in a list so I remember.
