Top Ten Tuesday (#9): Series I haven’t finished

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted at The Broke and The Bookish where they post a list idea and everyone is welcome to post the list with their own answers. This week’s theme is “Top Ten Series I Haven’t Finished”.

I haven’t included series that I am for releases for just ones that I’ve put off, given up on, etc…

Series that I’m still reading…

1. A Song of Fire & Ice – I have just started A Feast for Crows, but I try to read them slowly as a break between review books/purchases.


2. The Southern Vampire Mysteries – I just haven’t got around to ordering the last one yet, because when it first came out I wasn’t bothered enough to pay the price, and now I just have so many other books to read first.

3. Inheritance– I have no excuse for this one, it’s been on my shelf for months. I planned to re-read the rest of the series first, got half way through Eldest and then got distracted by A Song of Ice and Fire instead….

4.Women of the Otherworld – I borrowed Broken (book 6) from the library but didn’t find it as interesting as the other books I borrowed, had to take it back and haven’t yet purchased a copy.

5. Dreamers – I love David Eddings, but I didn’t love this series as much as his others. I’ve kept hold of it because his writing is kind of like comfort food when I’m sick, so these are kept as a lazy evening read.

6. Conqueror– So excited to read the last book, but so many books to read first!

 


I’ll probably never go back to….


7. The Sword of Truth – I honestly just found these kind of dull. I read up to Temple of The Winds and then I’d had enough!

8. The Vampire Diaries – The first three were okay, then after that they just got too weird for me.  The kitsune etc? Just too odd…

 

I’m on the fence about…

9. The Infernal Devices – Although I finished Clockwork Angel, I couldn’t really get into it at all.  Everyone raved about it though, so I haven’t decided yet whether to give book 2 a chance.

10. Wicked Years– For me, this was almost like car-crash tv in book form – so weird, and yet I couldn’t put it down. It’s maybe a charity shop buy if I decide to keep going.

Top Ten Tuesday (#8): Fall TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted at The Broke and The Bookish where they post a list idea and everyone is welcome to post the list with their own answers. This week’s theme is “Top Ten books on your fall TBR list”.

I’m considering Autumn to be September, October & November.

New and Upcoming Releases
1. The Dragon Keeper – Probably my nerdiness showing here, but I’m really looking forward to this.  Komodo Dragons? Yes please. Parthenogenesis? Even cooler.

2. Dearly Beloved – Dearly, Departed was my first venture into zombie fiction, and although I don’t think the genre is for me as a whole, I’m still curious about what happens next!

3. Ironskin

4. Crewel

5. Reached – I honestly thought Matched & Crossed were just okay, but I do want to finish the series.


Books that I should have read already, but am hoping to read this season

6. Conqueror

7. A Feast for Crows

8.  A Discovery of Witches

9. Tiger Lily

10. Throne of Glass
