Hey guys! I made up a poll on Twitter asking what you would like to see as a post for today and the series I am not planning on finishing won! Thanks for all who voted! While you are here, go and give my Twitter a follow! (@introvertbook) I follow all book bloggers back! (At least I try to! Sometimes I miss follows!) Anyway, I’m very active on my Twitter account and I love talking about books on there as much as here on my blog! Enough rambling now, let’s get to the post!
Before I tell you guys about the series I am not planning on finishing, I just wanted to let you guys know that it is totally okay if you love these series. I am in no way hating on your love for them. These are just simply my personal opinions and I do not in anyway mean to offend anyone!
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
I personally didn’t hate this book. I just couldn’t get into it. I had the hardcover (donated it) and the audiobook and regardless of which platform I chose to read this book on, I still couldn’t connect to it. It was just boring to me.
Replica by Lauren Oliver
I actually really liked this book when I was reading it. As time has passed, I have realized that I have no desire to pick up book 2. I guess I wasn’t as interested in this book as I originally thought I was while reading.
House of Night by P.C. and Kristin Cast
Okay, so I first got this series when it first came out. I received I think the first 3 or 4 in a box set as a gift for Christmas. I have no idea what year it was, but I do know I was still in high school so it was quite a long time ago now. I really, really loved this series. Like I re-read it over and over again in anticipation for the newest books as they were released. And then the books just kept coming and coming and coming and coming…I think you get my drift. Series shouldn’t drag on and on. I lost interest when I realized there was no end in sight. I also grew out of these books as well. If the whole series would have been published while I was still in high school I most likely would have read the entire series.
The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee
This book was a book that I was not expecting. It was more drama than anything, and I’m not really a fan of that. I guess I just read this one solely on it’s beautiful cover.
This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada
Okay, so I had really high hopes for this one, and I know it is well-loved in the bookish community, but it just didn’t do it for me. I have a whole review on this one that you can read for a more in-depth reason why I didn’t like it. (Read that review here) Short story: It was just too sciency and not enough post-apocalyptic for me.
Given to the Sea by Mindy McGinnis
Wow, okay, I just could not stand the sexism in this book. It was horrible how the men talked about women like they were objects and all they were good for was sex. A big nope for me.
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
Another well-loved series. I don’t think this series was bad. I actually read the first 2 books. I just did not like the love interest in this at all. That ship did not work for me at all. And the world-building was just a bit too complicated for my tastes. It took a really long time for me to get through these books because of how much I had to learn to understand the world. On top of all that, Samantha is making this series 7 books according to Goodreads, and I just do not have the time or patience to wait that long for the series to end.
I hope you guys enjoyed reading about the series that I have started and decided not to finish reading. I am curious if any of the series on my list are on yours too. Let me know down below the series that you have started and don’t plan on continuing!
