I’m joining in the Top Ten Tuesday meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish today! This week’s prompt is Ten Finished Series I have YET to Finish.
(And let me tell you it was not an easy task coming up with TEN book series I still have to finish. When I read a series, I read the series. So I bent the rules a bit by including Not Yet Completed Series too.)
One of these days I will finish Son. I WILL. It just…. wasn’t very interesting to me. I still think The Giver is the best out of that whole series. But! Maybe Son improves. *skeptical squinty eyes*
So far I’ve read the first three books, and loved them to death. Satire! Wit! Supervillains! Aliens! Unexpected feels! Best friends w/love-hate relationship! What more could you want?
STEAMPUNK, MY FRIENDS. Ahem. I am currently knee-deep in the first book, and the story-line, characters, and setting make me so happy. The evolution-y aspect of it doesn’t thrill my soul (fabricated animals? Ick. And unrealistic) but I will definitely pick up Book Two when I’ve finished the first. Also, Alek is near and dear to my heart. My precious.
4. The Roman Britain Trilogy.
I did a read-along of The Eagle of the Ninth last month with Hanne-col and we both loved it with all the love. (Seriously, if you haven’t read it, get thee to a library!) Now I need to read The Silver Branch, but I keep on forgetting to put it on hold. SOMEONE HOLD ME ACCOUNTABLE.
Anyone else on pins and needles to read the last book in this series? I need it ASAP. I need more Cinder fighting-cyborg action, and adorable Thorne/Cress moments, and ACTUAL Jacin and Winter scenes. Also, Iko. I love Iko so much. And what happens to Scarlet, I ask you? *hyperventilating* November can not arrive soon enough.
I have all three of my sisters giving me grief about my lack of enthusiasm over this series. Patience, darlings. I’ll put Venom and Song on hold today. I WILL.
The first book in this series was heartbreakingly beautiful. So much so that I’m scared to read the next book. My heart is a fragile organ, humans! o.o
8. The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place.
Pleasepleasepleaseprettyplease, if you are in love with this series tell me so we can fangirl together! *bribes you with chocolate chips* And are you scared for the next book too? Because the last one BROKE me. Pardon me while I panic.
I have a love/hate relationship with this series. The sci-fi, and plot twists, and general supervillain writing epic-ness is fantastic, but David’s inability to filter his thoughts about women (Megan in particular) drives me batty. I didn’t even finish Firefight because of it. I think I’ll probably end up buying the book and just whiting out the inappropriate parts and swearing.
This series is far from being finished (everybody dance a jig of joy!) but I still have to read Golden Daughter and Draven’s Light. And I am so excited. Particularly since the former stars a highly trained Top Secret girl-guardian. Just my style. ^_^
Have you read any of these books, fellow bookworms? Which of these series should I tackle ASAP? Which series NOT featured here do you recommend?
