So many unfinished series books sitting on my shelf! I'm kinda shocked! O.o

 
I had to look very carefully at my bookshelf for this top ten tuesday. I've got tons of books sitting on my shelf and the majority of them are series books. The questions here was, how many of those series books aren't finished yet?

The number was surprising

Here's my list of Unfinished Series Books

#1) The Gone Series by Michael Grant

I've got all the books! Every single one sitting on my shelf. It was one of those cases where I just had to have them all and never found the time to actually read them. Then when I finally did find the time to read Gone (the first book in the series) Yeah I didn't like it so much. In fact I probably won't read the rest of the series at all. The book just wasn't my kinda book. These books will sit there on my shelf forever and just look pretty.

#2) The Luxe Series by Anna Godberson

These books were so pretty I just had to have them! And they were on sale too! Can't beat that!!! I've got all four in hardcover and pretty much never read. The first book was good, just not great. And I will admit, I might read the rest someday. Just not any time soon. 

#3) The Wicked Lovely Series - By Melissa Marr

I read the first book and absolutely hated it. This was way in the beginning of my book reading journey though, so my tastes might have changed. But at the moment, the book just wasn't for me. I still went on to buy the rest of the series. Why? I have no idea? Will I read them someday? Perhaps. But don't hold your breath on that one.

#4) Castor Chronicles Series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

These books look beautiful on my bookshelf. That might be the only reason why I continue to buy them. I read Beautiful Creatures and thought it was an ok read. Something I'd like to continue reading? Not so much. I am however incredibly excited for the movie! Gotta show my support for book to movie adaptations! Who knows, maybe it'll convince me to look back into the series? It's a big maybe though.

#5) The Immortals Series by Allyson Noel

The books were just so darn pretty! I had to buy them!!!! ALL OF THEM!!!! But once again I wasn't really wow'd by them. A friend of mine swears that these books are EPIC! But the majority of book bloggers will agree, these books aren't all that great. I read the first one and well, yeah it's another case of falling for the pretty covers. I'll never read these. That I know for sure.

#6) The Soul Screamers Series by Rachel Vincent

Once again, I own them all. I'm weird. I'm starting to see the trend lol! I'm addicted to buying pretty books! I read the first one and couldn't get into it. I will admit, I've been very tempted to pick this series up again. People say so much about these books. People love them. I could love them too? Maybe? Right?

#7) The Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan

People RAVE about this series. One friend of mine in particular has actually read them all.. more than once.. way more than once. And it was she that got me to pick them up. I think I might have picked them up a bit too late though. I saw the movie first. Shouldn't have done that! The movie, was lame. Too all the Percy Jackson fans out there.. I'm sorry. I just, yeah. I read the first book and thought it was a bit dull. I blame the movie entirely. BUT, I haven't given up faith on this one. The rest of the books might surprise me. The one's that don't have horrible movies set out to ruin them. I will pick this series up again, I'm almost sure of it.

#8) The Forest of Hands and Teeth Series by Carrie Ryan

This was my first taste of the zombie genre. The Forest of Hands and Teeth was one of the first books I read when I first started my reading obsession. It was yet another ok read. Of course I bought the rest of the series. Just look at them! Their awesome!!! But I'm not sure if I'll ever read them. I have glanced at them a few times while looking for my next book to read... I might pick them up some day. 

#9) The Prophecy of the Sister's Series by Michelle Zink

Oh man I didn't like the first book. Like at all. In fact, my review for it, wasn't all that pretty. I hate writing reviews like that. I'm just glad reviews like that are few and far between. This series is sitting on my shelf. They are beautiful and I'll probably keep buying them. But their never getting read.

#10) Darkest Powers Series - By Kelly Armstrong

I actually like the first book in this series. I gave it a decent rating and might consider reading the rest. I think the fact that I haven't read the rest yet lies on one thing. Thier kinda old. There's so many new releases coming out that books like this (from a few years back) just fall into the cracks. I hope to get to these someday. But it won't be anytime soon.

So basically, I've got tons of books sitting on my shelf that I'm never going to read. Some I didn't like. Some I absolutely hated. Some I just don't have time for.
I'm actually a bit shocked! WOW!
O.o

  1. The immortal series! I bought the whole thing at once because the covers were nice as well. I've read the whole series, but like you I wasn't wowed by it. Hope you'll have time to finish some of these series.

  3. If I'm not a fan of the first book in a series I have a hard time continuing/finishing it. For some reason I just loose all interest even though I know most series get better.

  4. Soul Screamers is really good, you definitely need to continue it! I also really liked Darkest Powers and Prophecy of the Sisters. I tried to get into the Wicked Lovely one, but I didn't much like the first book, I may pick it up again down the road.
    I hope you get to finish these, whether you liked the first book or just liked the cover :)

  7. Sadly I have a ton of series sitting in my TBR pile as well. Not because I don't want to finish then but because right now I don't have the time too. And even more sad? Some of those series sitting there in my pile, are my favorites.

    Next year I definitely need to time manage a little better and make sure I leave room open for me to read some of those books as well as ARCs.

  9. I feel the exact same way about Caster Chronicles. I liked the first one okay and am excited for the movie but I just wasn't interested enough to read anymore. Wicked Lovely was one of my favorite series, but I think fey books are hard. I had the same reaction to the Iron Fey series that you had to Wicked Lovely - so you may try em' again, but they may just not be for you. They're definitely a little odd/different.

  11. So many of those series are so long! That can be kind of a turn off sometimes. I am thinking along the same lines as you, maybe after The Beautiful Creatures movie I will be inspired to finish off the series. Great list! :)

  12. Darkest Powers is good! It's one of the first YA series I read before I started book blogging. And I REALLY want to start the Castor Chronicles!

  13. Same! I actually got the ARC for Beautiful Creatures but I never got really into them. The book covers are gorgeous but... Maybe the movie motivate me to read them again?

  14. I agree with you about the Immortals series. I've read the first two books because I liked the covers, but it just wasn't my type of books so I took the rest of the series off my wishlist.

  17. my name is Amanda Sharif My Ex-husband dumped me for a new woman 3 years after our marriage. And i was totally devastated and cried all day and night for aid. My Love life completely turned out to be a mess, because i couldn't just carry on with it anymore.. I was at the point of doing whatever thing that will save my Marriage and make him mine again, because i knew he was my soul mate and i fell deeply in love with him. We were both head over heels and over the moon for one another, and his feelings for me was so strong and he promised me love eternal. Life and pressure got in the way about two weeks before my birthday, And was pressured by his Mother to divorce me, and forced me to sign the divorce papers after seeing the attorney.. For weeks after our divorce he still remained in contacts with me, and after some times he no longer (calls nor texts) anymore. So i had no other choice than to cry out for help to Dr aluda the spell caster i found online, and to my best of luck, he was right presently here in united states.. so he did cast a spell for me and he assured me positive result after 48 hours.. For the first time in 14 months my ex husband did called me for apologies, and he felt so sorry and remorseful for ever leaving me, and he told me how much he love and miss me. And his spells made me so unique in the Sight of my husband, and did open his eyes and made him remember why and how we fell in love in the first place..Thank you for your help! From the depth of my heart of hearts I know we are meant to be. your spells truly helped me and brought joy to my life once again. Email aludaspelltemple@gmail.com from Usa

  20. Hello To The World At Large,I am from USA.I will start by saying to all that have experience heart break and also cant do with out there lover should please stop here and read up my story, So as you will know how to go solving or getting your ex back from this spell caster..AND AGAIN I WILL WANT TO ALSO TELL ALL THAT THIS SPELL CASTER I WILL WANT TO TELL THE WHOLE WORLD ABOUT IS HARMLESS AND DO NOT HAVE ANY SIDE EFFECT, BUT TO RESTORE AND GIVE YOU BACK WHAT YOU DESERVE, COS WHEN I MEET WITH THIS SPELL CASTER THAT WAS INTRODUCED TO ME BY MY FRIEND IN MY WORKING PLACE, HE MADE IT CLEAR THAT HE CAN CAST SPELL ON SO MANY OTHER PROBLEMS THAT HE CAN CAST A SPELL THAT CAN MAKE YOUR LOVER FALLING LOVE WITH YOU FOREVER. Last year December, My lover was cheating on me and was not also give me the attention that a woman should give to a man,And really that was troubling my mind and tearing my heart apart to the extent that i was not concentrating in the office the way i use to before the break up by my lover.And before that incident,I always see how my friend use to love his wife so much. I was binging to think that i was not doing the right thing to her that will make her love me forever,So i really gathered my courage and went to my friend office to ask him the secret that made his wife love him so dearly,In the first place he refused in telling me,he asked me why i am asking him such a question,That if is it not normal for every man to love his wife.I told him the reason that made me ask him about this question,That my lover started cheating on me lately,When i knelt down before him for him to see my seriousness in this issue that i went to ask him,he opened up to me by telling me that i should not tell anybody about what he want to tell me,my friend started to say to me that he used a very powerful spell on his wife to love him,And the spell that he used is harmless, But the spell is just to make her love him and never to look for any other man except him. I QUICKLY ASK HIM HOW DID HE GET TO KNOW THIS GREAT,POWER,DURABLE AND PERFECT WORK SPELL CASTER,he said that a friend of him also introduce him to the spell caster. Then i also ask him how i can meet with this spell caster.HE SAID EVERYTHING TO ME,THAT THE NAME OF THIS SPELL CASTER IS Dr,ZACK BALO .My next question to him was how can i get this wonderful spell caster,he said he is going to give me the email of the spell caster for me to contact him for my problem,Really he gave to me this spell caster email address wiseindividualspell@gmail.com and i contacted him and explained all to him,And after every thing that needed to be done by the spell caster, In the next three days, My lover that hated me so much came to house begging for forgiveness and i was so glad that i have finally gotten my heart desire..I was so grateful to this spell caster for what he has done for my life.. So i made a promise to him that i will always continue telling the world about his wonderful work towards me and also to other that came to you before and also the people that will also get to you from my story that i narrated online now..I will want to say to the entire world that you should not cry over noting again, That there is a great man that has been helping individuals to restore there Joy and smile in their faces !! The direct email to get this man is : wiseindividualspell@gmail.com or you call his phone number +2348078927387 ,This is what i want to tell you all out there,That is thinking that all hope is lost ok..Thanks Regards Matthew,

  21. Midred Jackson Says

    Am giving this testimony because am happy and only GOD in heaven will help me to bless and protect this great spell caster called Dr Otis Darko as he is a GODSENT into my life to change the situation of my life and restore JOY, HAPPINESS AND LAUGHTER into my life again as he alone is who I can say contact because he was the only one that could help me get my ex back to me and made him love and cherish me like never before....

    My name is Midred Jackson from Michigan I never believed in love spells or magic until I met this spell caster once. when I went to Africa in November 28th 2015 last year on a business summit. I ment a man called DR OTIS DARKO. He is powerful he could help you cast a spells to bring back your love’s gone, misbehaving lover looking for some one to love you, bring back lost money and magic money spell or spell for a good job.i’m now happy & a living testimony because the man I had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down because our relationship has been on for 2 years… I really loved him, but his mother was against me and he had no good paying job. so when I met this spell caster, I told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him and at first I was undecided,skeptical and doubtful, but I just gave it a try and in less than 2 days when I returned to MICHIGAN, my boyfriend (is now my husband ) he called me by himself and came to me apologize for everything and we had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married..I didn’t believe it because the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all I wanted him to do… well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid,and my husband also got a new job and our lives became much better. in case anyone needs the spell caster for some help, email address: otisdarko60@yahoo.com and he will help out...

    GREAT OTIS DARKO I thank you very much thank you in 1000000 times.. if not you I would have been losted and wasted thank you. Email Him Through his email address... otisdarko60@yahoo.com

    Please make sure you contact him for any financial difficulties okay or any kind of problem you are facing in life as this man is GODSENT into this world to help everyone solve their problems today in life..

    What a powerful man such as DR OTIS DARKO.. he is so much powerful..\\ email him for any difficulties.. otisdarko60@yahoo.com................... YOU CAN ALSO ADD HIM UP ON WHATSAPP USING THIS MOBILE NUMBER:+2348077526136
