Top Ten Finished Series I Have Yet To Finish

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  Each week there is a new topic and this week’s topic is:   Ten Finished Series I Have YET to Finish.

At first I was planning to include series that haven’t been finished yet because I couldn’t think of many that were.  But then I ended up with coming up with plenty.  Some I have read one or more of the books, others I haven’t even started.  There are also a couple that I read the first book and have decided to not finish the rest of the series.

  • All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness – This had been on my TBR for a long time and I finally got around to reading it a few weeks ago.  I really enjoyed it so I ended up buying the 2nd and 3rd book on my Friday book haul.  I can’t wait to read them and will definitely be finishing this series by the end of the year.
  • The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett – This is a duology that I have owned for quite some time and still haven’t picked it up yet.  I really want to read them though so hopefully some time next year.
  • The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater – I read the first one in April as a part of the Reading My Library Challenge and liked it so much I bought the boxed set.  So I will definitely be finishing this series sometime in the next few months.
  • The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo – You probably already know that I LOVE this trilogy.  I just got the paperback of Ruin and Rising a bit ago so I’ll be reading that as soon as I get through Heir of Fire and Queen of Shadows.
  • Delirium series by Lauren Oliver – This is a series I got super cheap from Book Outlet but I haven’t read any of them yet.
  • The Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson – I have yet to read a book solely written by Sanderson but I loved his style when he completed The Wheel of Time series for the late Robert Jordan so I am eager to check out this series.  I have the boxed set.
  • The Tudor Court novels by Philippa Gregory – I’ve actually only read book 2 from this series.  I LOVE Henry VIII and his wives so I definitely need to get a move on this one.  I own all of the books.
  • The Dollanganger series by V.C. Andrews – I read Flowers in the Attic and it was just way too much for me with all of the incest so I will not be completely this series.
  • The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare – I really didn’t care much for Clary or the first book in general so this is another series that I will not be finishing.
  • The Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan – This is a series I thought I would never read.  I had never really heard much about it until the movie came out for the first book and it didn’t really appeal to me.  But I found the first book at a thrift store for $0.50 so I thought I might as well give it a try sometime.  It’s still sitting on my shelf waiting for me to pick it up.  Maybe sometime in 2016.

What finished series have you not finished yet?

    • I also haven’t started The Selection series. I have the first book but haven’t gotten around to it yet. It’s another I thought I would never read but found it cheap so I thought I might as well give it a shot.

  1. I’m glad I’m not the only one who didn’t care for The Mortal Instruments series. I made it through book 3 before calling it quits.

    I’m definitely going to finish the Grisha trilogy eventually. I’m really enjoying A Discovery of Witches so far!

    • Yeah… There is no way I could read past book 1 in TMI lol. Even the movie didn’t hold my interest. I can’t wait to finish the Grisha trilogy. I’m really glad you’re enjoying A Discovery of Witches! I’m excited to get to the other books.

  2. Pillars of Earth is one of my favorite books! I started the sequel but I couldn’t get into it. I own the Mistborn Trilogy but I never started it. The Percy Jackson series is a lot of fun to read. I enjoyed the modern take on Greek mythology.

  3. Hmm, let me know if you continue on with the Pillars of the Earth. I read the first book and really liked it – though it’s kinda filled with nothing but horrible events. LOL The local library led a program around this book where went to an area chapel and got to hear a program from an architect talking about local church architecture. That was a cool way to layer the reading. If you like the second book, let me know.

  4. I completely forgot about The Pillars of the Earth series! That would be on my list too, I read the first one but haven’t read World Without End yet. Percy Jackson and The Mortal Instruments are on my list as well.
