This weeks’ topic was to do with travelling, but I didn’t have anything that fit in. So, instead I decided to do last weeks topic that I didn’t get to do because my laptop took two and a half hours to update. It was torture.
All the books in this list are either the first in a series or part way through that I didn’t finish for one reason or another.
1. Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
This book has been sat on my ‘currently reading’ section of Goodreads since November last year, and I’m not sure when I’ll get a chance to finish it. I was a little bored, but I somehoe managed to get over a hundred pages in. The third book is also on my shelf, but it doesn’t leave me with much hope if I stopped reading the second one.
2. Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings
I really tried with this book. I even got to the halfway point, but I just wasn’t interested. It sounded great, however I couldn’t connect with the characters and the writing just didn’t flow for me. Whether that is because I don’t read a lot of sci-fi, or if it’s because it was written by two people, I don’t know. I feel like I should try and finish this, but it took me long enough to reach the halfway point.
3. House of Night Series by P. C. Cast
I used to adore this series! I started reading it just after I got into Twilight, and I couldn’t get enough. Every book I bought was amazing and I loved the characters. HOWEVER, I felt that as they went along the story lost it’s spark and I eventually stopped reading after Awakened, even though I’d bought Destiny. It would be interesting to see if I found them as good now. Probably not though.
4. Divergent by Veronica Roth
If it weren’t for the movie, I’m not sure I’d remember much of this book. I don’t even think I read the second book, which says a lot. It was just one of those series that I quickly grew out of, and I was never a big fan of dystopian anyway.
5. The Selection by Kiera Cass
Everyone always goes on about this series (for good and bad reasons), but after I read the first book I never bought the rest. Although, the covers for the series are absolutely gorgeous. I don’t even remember what happens in this book, so it obviously didn’t leave much of an impression.
6. Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
I adored the Vampire Academy series, and so I figured I would really enjoy Bloodlines as well. I kind of did, and then I just stopped reading them. I remember reading the first one, but I don’t remember much of the second, and I never got around to reading the third. I didn’t even know there were six books until today!
7. Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
I actually remember loving this book so much and the characters, especially the male lead. And then I just never picked up the second book, which seems to be a recurring theme with me and books. I can’t remember why I didn’t, although it’s probably because I used to get too distracted by other books.
8. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Can I just repeat what I said above? Another book I enjoyed and never carried on. Everyone says they love this series and I feel like I missed out, and I’m probably at the point where I wouldn’t go back and read them.
9. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Again, another series I feel like I missed out on. I originally read Shatter Me before it was published in the UK, as I bought the US edition from the Book Depository, and I remember really enjoying the story. I can probably blame other books getting in the way as my reason for not reading the rest of the series. Story of my life.
10. The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
Please tell me I wasn’t the only one that stopped reading this series (and the other series’ set in the universe)? I read the first four, bought the fifth and never read it. I even have these covers, and they all have brand new ones now. Plus, I can’t even remember half of what happens in them.
I actually managed to come up with a lot of books and series for this (which is probably really bad now I think about it).
What book series did you DNF?
