A lot of you will probably recognize this problem, but half of my bookshelves are filled with the half of series or only the first book. Sometimes I didn’t like the first book, so in that case it will stay that way. Other times I did read the other books, but I don’t own them. For example with the Scarlett Wakefield book. I have book 2 and 4 and my cousin has 1 and 3. However most of the unfinished series on my shelves are just there because I never got to buy the rest. Every time I go to the bookstore I see another book that I want to read first and I just leave the series for later.
First of all: The Endgame series. I got the first book during the Veronica Roth event in a goodiebag… Yup, that’s 1,5 year ago. I read it during the Blossom Books read-a-thon, with was last May. I can’t remember much of it, only that I absolutely hated it. Why would I want to read the rest of the series? Well I did like the idea of the story and I also think I know why I didn’t like it. The onlly other books that I’d read that year were contemporary books and the first 3 books from The selection. So a book about murder didn’t really fit in. Because I did like the idea I look forward to read the other books SOMEDAY.
I also have a series that isn’t that long ago since I read the first book, which was the book Reboot. I got it for my birthday last year and I remember that I read it very fast after it, so I guess around October. I really enjoyed reboot from the start. The story was fun and exciting, so actually everything that I expected. Just after I finished it the second book was brought out, but I never bought it. I don’t really know why, because I really want to know how the story goes. I just never did it.
Finally The testing, another book that I read a really long time ago. I can’t really remember when, but at least a year ago. Just like Endgame a story that I absolutely didn’t like, but a little worse. With every little thing that happened I was like “I’ve already read this somewhere”, “Hé this happens there” or “I know this”. Not very great while reading as you can imagine. Now I’m at the point that I’m finally over it, so I think I’m ready to continue the series. It does sound really nice and a lot of people said I should read it, so I might do it sometime.
What series do you want to finish?
