Book Series I Don’t Plan to Finish

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature once hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl! Each week, a new topic is put into place and bloggers share their top ten (or your own amount) accordingly.

I have a habit of starting book series and never finishing them. Sometimes I just forget to continue the series (this happens a lot, especially if I didn’t enjoy the first) but I do try and continue onto the second book which is really where the make or break moment happens for me. But I think these are five series I definitely don’t plan to continue.


1. The Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare

I’ve only really read The Mortal Instruments series of this collection. But I really have no intention to continuing onto the other stories and series within this world. I hear her newer pieces are much better and more thrilling but, sadly, I don’t have any interest in the Shadowhunter series anymore.

2. The Selection by Kiera Cass

This series is truly the ‘we could’ve had it all’ series for me. I stopped after the third book and I chose not to continue into the series where it follows the main lead’s daughter. But I was so disappointed by this series. There was so much hidden potential that was just wasted and I think I’ll always be disappointed by this in the end.

3. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

Actually, this series is a maybe I’ll pick it up or maybe I won’t. Very much depends on if have the time. Cinder was an alright read for me and this series is so loved which makes me want to finish it but I just don’t have the energy and time for it at the moment.

4. The Folk of the Air by Holly Black

The lack of feeling I had for Cruel Prince was disappointing. I’m in search of a fairy series but I was disappointed by how uninteresting this was. I usually hold on until book two but here I didn’t even to 50% before deciding the series wasn’t for me.

5. The Nightside Saga by Tristina Wright

I think in the review of 27 Hours I was going to read the second but my interest in this is gone after hearing about Tristina. All interest is gone.

There’s probably loads more to this list that I can think of (like the Hunter series, Kricket series or The Queen of the Tearling) But I’m very strapped for time at the moment so couldn’t spend more time on this post.

What’s on your TTT this week? Leave me a link or let me know in the comments! 🤗

  1. Great post! I definitely left the shadowhunters behind. And there are still books coming out! I think I just got tired of them. And I feel the same way about the selection series. As for Cinder, I wasn’t too much a fan of it. It was just an ok book but the rest of the series was really fun.

  2. I also chose to not read the subsequent Selection trilogy, I like the original one just as it was and don’t want it to be ruined. I am also ambivalent about The Lunar Chronicles; I wasn’t that in love with Cinder, but I’m curious of what makes this series so well-loved!
