Sooooo next week for Top Ten Tuesday the topic is ‘Series I’ve Given Up On/ Don’t Plan to Finish’.
This has prompted me to go through all of the series I’m in the middle of!
Today I’ll talk about the series I am keeping and next week I will talk about the series I am giving up on.
I’ve made a new exclusive shelf on Goodreads for Series TBR** while I’m at it. I’ve begun a deep cleanse and reorganization of my shelves that will be happening over the next couple of months while doing the Down the TBR Hole posts, so I might as well use these posts to contribute to that while I’m at it.
I’m not including novellas as part of this list as I consider them to be completely optional, and only read them if I think they’ll add to the story, or it’s a favourite series and I can’t get enough.
This does, however, include graphic novel series!
**These are only series that I have started. It’s not for all the books that I am wanting to read that are in series. As I don’t add multiple books from a series to my TBR’s that I haven’t read unless I own them.
│The Dark Artifices Series│Cassandra Clare│
I am trash for Cassandra Clare’s books, especially since she really does get better as she goes.
I am so excited for the rest of this series! I already own Lord of Shadows but I think I might wait until the last book is out and read the series from start to finish.
│Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe Series│Benjamin Alire Sáenz│
Unread Book: Book #2, There Will Be Other Summers – Unreleased
I love Ari and Dante and I am so excited to get more of my sweet cinnamon roll boys!!!
│The Raven Cycle Series│Maggie Stiefvater│
The first book was so good! And I will finish the series! I will! After all, I do own the whole series now so I am officially obligated to finish it!
│Red Queen Series│Victoria Aveyard│
Unread Book: Book #4, War Storm
Just look at that cover.
I really enjoyed this series but I struggled with the third book, King’s Cage. However, I am willing to give War Storm a shot. Mostly because it’s the last book in the series and I’m hoping it ends on a high. Or a low, but like a good low…
│Lady Helen Series│Alison Goodman│
I really struggled to get through the first one for some reason, but I did really enjoy it. I think it just maybe was a bit longer than it needed to be.
I’m tentatively keeping this series on my TBR. We’ll see.
│The Numair Chronicles Series│Tamora Pierce│
Unread Book: Book #2, The Exile’s Gift – Unreleased
I enjoyed the first book and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next!
I’m debating whether to read Pierce’s older works, especially considering I think this is a spin off series from one of her older series??
│The Villians Series│V.E. Schwab│
Unread Book: Book #2, Vengeful – Unreleased
I loved the first book and I am so excited to be getting the second book this year!
│Daughter of the Pirate King Series│Tricia Levenseller│
Unread Book: Book #2, Daughter of the Siren Queen
This is another tentative one.
I’ll keep it on my TBR for now. We’ll see if I am still interested a bit later on. I enjoyed the first book but it wasn’t incredible.
│A Tyranny of Petticoats Series│Jessica Spotswood│
Unread Book: Book #1, A Tyranny of Petticoats
I read the second collection of stories from Netgalley so I’m looking forward to seeing what the first one is like!
│Ember Quartet│Sabaa Tahir│
I really loved the first two books and I am so excited about the last two!
This might be one of those series where I wait for all the books to come out and then read from start to finish.
Also, I am a fan of the cover changes! I think it’s important for POC to be on book covers, and although it’s annoying if you already have bought the books, I think the change is more important than if people have matching covers. But that’s just me. 🤷♀️
│The Six of Crows Series│Leigh Bardugo│
Unread Book: Book #3, Untitled – Unreleased
I AM SO FUCKING GLAD THAT I CAN OFFICIALLY PUT THIS SERIES ON THIS LIST BECAUSE WE’RE GETTING A THIRD BOOK!
Honestly, we don’t deserve Leigh Bardugo, the Goddess herself.
│A Series of Unfortunate Events│Lemony Snicket│
I’m looking forward to continuing this trip to my childhood! I just gotta the next books to become available on Overdrive.
│A Court of Thorns and Roses Series│Sarah J. Maas│
I will get to this book…Eventually.
I’ll probably do a whole series read.
I hated the first book but loved the second. Hopefully, it’s only up from here but I am worried.
│Wayward Children Series│Seanan McGuire│
Ahhhhhhhh I loved the first one so much, I can’t wait to read more!
│Heloise Chancey Mystery Series│M.J. Tjia│
Unread Book: Book #2, A Necessary Murder
God, the covers of this series are gorgeous!
I was surprised when I enjoyed the first book for the most part.
I’m interested to see where the series goes.
│Iskari Series│Kristen Ciccarelli│
The covers for this series are breathtaking, I love it!
I really enjoyed the first book, so I am keen to see what is to come.
│A Song of Ice and Fire Series│George R. R. Martin│
I’ll get back to this once I’ve run out of the TV show and going through withdrawals. I don’t want my time with this world to end!
I am waiting until after the T.V. series is finished and also probably until all the books are out and then I am going to power through this series, from start to finish.
│The Montague Siblings Series│Mackenzie Lee│
Unread Book: Book #2, The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy
I NEED IT!!!
I love Felicity and I love girl gangs of any kind, especially intelligent ones
Mackenzie Lee is an angel to be blessing us with this book.
│The Conqueror’s Saga│Kiersten White│
I can’t believe I nearly forgot this one!
I’m super excited to finish this series.
I totally fell head over heels for the first book when I read it, and I pre-ordered the second books before it came out.
I’m ashamed to say, I just never got around to picking it up so now I’m just waiting for Bright We Burn to come out and then I’ll read the series from the start again!
│Heathen Series│Natasha Alterici│
Unread Graphic Novel: GN #2, Heathen: Volume 2 – Unreleased
I loved volume one and I cannot wait for the second one!
I need it now!
│Saga Series│Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples│
When I first picked up this series I had no idea what I was getting myself in for and it’s been a fun and wild ride from the start!
│SLAM! Series│Pamela Ribon│
Unread Graphic Novel: GN #2, SLAM!: The Next Jam
I really enjoyed the first volume of this! Hopefully, I can get my hands on the second volume when it comes out.
│Giant Days Series│John Allison│
I love this series so much and I actually have volumes 3 & 4 on loan from the library, waiting for me to read them.
│I Hate Fairyland Series│Skottie Young│
This series is so funny! I’m looking forward to seeing more.
│Rat Queens Series│Kurtis J. Wiebe│
Unread Graphic Novel: GN #5, Rat Queens, Vol. 5: The Colossal Magic Nothing
I love the Rat Queens! Give me more!!!
│Locke & Key Series│Joe Hill & Gabriel Rodríguez│
This series is so creepy, I love it!
│Archie (2015) Series│Mark Waid│
I read the first volume because I loved the T.V. show Riverdale
the show has gone so downhill though and used to love the original Archie comics.
I enjoyed the first one and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next.
│Princeless Series│Jeremy Whitley & Emily Martin │
The first one was soooo good!
I really enjoyed and I’m interested to see what’s to come!
│Morning Glories Series│Nick Spencer & Joe Eisma│
The first two volumes were really interesting and a bit creepy.
I’m excited to see where the series goes from here.
│Lumberjanes Series│Shannon Watters│
I adore this series. It’s so pure and good!
