I used to be really good at finishing series, but now that I have less time than I would like to be able to read, it can be hard to finish a series. Some series though, I have no excuse to not finishing other than I just didn’t pick up the second book for whatever reason! Anyways, here are a few series I haven’t finished but do plan to.
Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo
When I read the first book in this duology, I mostly skimmed it and didn’t really appreciate or understand what was going on…I feel like I had really high expectations for the book because of the hype, but also wasn’t in the mood to read it at the time so I didn’t love it like everyone else did and does. I do have the second book, Crooked Kingdom though, so I would really like to re read Six of Crows and then jump into Crooked Kingdom! I know I will like it once I actually read it, but when will that be? Hopefully soon.
Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard trilogy by Rick Riordan
The third book for this trilogy is actually coming out in a few days, but sadly I still haven’t read the second book…I love Rick Riordan, and have made that clear on this blog, but I honestly didn’t love this series as much as his others. That is probably the main reason I didn’t read the next book once I got it, but I would really like to give it a second chance. Sadly, I would have to re read the first book which would take up more time, but maybe once the third book comes out I will just binge the trilogy. Yeah, that sounds like a good idea.
Trials of Apollo series by Rick Riordan
I know, I know, I am just not up to date with all of the Rick Riordan books! He just comes out with too many books in a year and once you fall behind…well good luck. Anyways, this was another new series by him that I didn’t absolutely adore. I did like it, but I feel like I need to give the first book a re read before jumping into the second one. It is possible that I compared it too much to the Percy Jackson series or the Heroes of Olympus series which is why I didn’t like it as much as I hoped. Hopefully that is the case because I know it is a series a lot of people enjoy!
Blood of Gods and Royals by Eleanor Herman
This is a really interesting and complex series that includes one of my favourite things, Greek mythology, which is the main reason I picked it up. I really enjoyed the first book and was looking forward to the second book. However, it was a new release which meant I had to wait an entire year before being able to purchase the second book, Empire of Dust. By then I wasn’t as excited because I completely forgot what happened it the book! So yeah, another re read to add to my never ending list because I really did like the characters and story line.
Those are a few series that I have started but haven’t finished…and hopefully in the future I will! I hope you enjoyed this blog post and don’t forget to check out my last blog post: NaNoWriMo Prep #1
