I love to read series, which means I start a hell of a lot of series and they sit around until I attempt to finish them. As we all know, we don’t know have time to read everything. I recently went through my Goodreads and decided to purge some of the series I have started that I will not finish. These aren’t necessarily bad books, they just aren’t for me and I would prefer to spend my reading time on series that I am really enjoying. I have written 2 of these in the past, you can find them here and here.
1) En Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
I enjoyed the first book in this series a lot. However, I had to push myself through the second book and I just don’t see myself reading the next book in the series at all. I don’t find the characters particularly memorable, which makes it hard to jump back in. However, I do like to see the representation on the new book covers. They are awesome.
2) The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
I read the first 3 books in this series and they were originally suppose to be a trilogy. I am very happy to finish off this series here. I am not a huge fan of Jace and Clary and I this world just seems to grow and grow. It’s overwhelming and I don’t like series enough to read like 10 more books. I may get some hate here but this series just isn’t for me.
3) The Luxe
This book was painful to read. I listened to it on a road trip and if I hadn’t listened to it then, I would probably have DNF’d the book. It’s very much a teen drama set in the early 1900’s. I for sure am not continuing.
1) Gotham Academy
I read the first 3 Volumes of Gotham Academy. I really loved the first volume but the other 2 volumes were just mediocre. I am kind of sad to see it go because I really liked the characters in the first volume but I was just confused in the later volumes. They are doing Gotham Academy Second Semester now but I won’t be picking it up.
2) Deadly Class
This is an interesting series and it’s got a really cool premise but I feel like this series just isn’t for me anymore. I needed to purge some of my comic series and I felt like I was just reading this series to read it, instead of actually enjoying it.
3) Moon Girl and the Devil Dinosaur
I just read the first volume of this series and it was only okay for me. I felt a bit thrown into the story, and I felt like I was missing previous information about the characters. Especially, the devil dinosaur. It’s a common issue in the Marvel comics, and I don’t want to go back and figure it out.
Have you read any of these series? Did you love them or did you quit them? Let me know down below!
