Top Ten Series I Haven't Finished

The topic for this Top Ten Tuesday from the Broke and the Bookish is the list of series I have not gotten around to finishing. For the most part, I haven’t read the subsequent books because of time constraints. In very few cases, I just couldn’t get into the series at all and only read the first novel.

Heather Wells by Meg Cabot-I was sent the latest for review without having read the first three. It was such a cute story! I want to get to the others eventually.

Women of the Otherwold by Kelley Armstrong-I only read a collection of stories from this series. It was really good! I think the main reason I’ve procrastinated is because there are thirteen novels altogether.

Immortals After Dark by Kresley Cole-This is another example of me procrastinating on the series because of the number of books. I read Lothaire, which was number 12, and would love to go back and read the preceding novels.

Fifty Shades by EL James-When everyone and their mother are talking about something, I have to see what all the hoopla is about. After the first novel, I just couldn’t go any further. I heard some readers say the series improves, so who knows? Maybe one day.

The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare-The reason I haven’t read past book one is because I’m afraid I’ll get sucked in and have to read the others back to back.

The Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine-These books are amazing, but I have a couple to still catch up on.

Stephanie Plum by Janet Evanovich-I’ve read as far as seven and hope to eventually finish the rest.

Providence by Jamie McGuire-I didn’t love Beautiful Disaster, but got sucked into this paranormal story about angels and demons.

Pulse by Kailin Gow-The first book in this series didn’t flow well and the plot was too reminiscent of several YA vampire novels.

Fall of Angels by Keary Taylor-The premise was good, but the plot and dialogue became too cheesy for me to continue.


  1. I've never read Stephanie Plum although I've heard many good things but the series is huge. I think there are just too many books. My Top Ten Tuesday

  2. City of Bones was a birthday present, but when I took a look at the book closely, I decided it wasn't for me.

    Loved Insurgent. Here Divergent sits.

    Here's my Top Ten Series I Haven't Finished. I hope you will stop by!

  3. I read one of of Cabot's books, I think it was size 14... and I did like it a lot. I didn't continue reading the series because... well, I don't know. I just stopped :-(

  4. The Mortal Instruments series IS addicting! and the Providence series was pretty good. (:

    My Top Ten

  5. The first three Mortal Instruments books are like their own trilogy within the series, so I've taken a break between book three and four. They were really great addictive books. I have too many unfinished series.

  6. I just won a copy of Beautiful Disaster. Is it a series? I can't wait to start it, I've heard good things :) WRITE ON!
