Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Series I haven't finished yet

This is a weekly meme hosted by the girls over at The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Series I Haven't Finished

1) House of Night series by P. C. and Kristin Cast-I probably never will because I got so disgusted with it and its nonsensical plot (if one can call that a plot), horrible characters, stereotypes galore, slut shaming, hypocritical main character, and even mild racism (at one point Zoey calls her Cherokee heritage barbaric. Seriously.). I just am fed up with it and with the immature authors who don't take criticism well. I'm probably never touching this series again.

2) The Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine-Honestly I just got bored with this one. Maybe I'll pick them up again whenever the author decides to finish it sometime this century.

3) The Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin-I'm working on it! I just finished book 3 and book 4 is waiting on my shelf but I have several books to read before I get there so likely I won't finish it until next year.

4) The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan-About two books behind. I'm working on it, I swear. In my defense I only read Percy Jackson last year when Heroes of Olympus started.

5) Nightshade series by Andrea Cremer-Hated the first book so I'm pretty much never touching the rest.

6) Tiger series by Colleen Houck-Again, hated the first book so never bothering with the rest.

7) Star Trek books by random authors-Because there are so damn many.

8) Star Wars books by random authors-See above, though I'm proud to say I've read all the Jedi Apprentice books and the Young Jedi series so I guess that's something?

9) Midnight for Charlie Bone series-Didn't like the first book.

10) The Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket-This one's embarressing. I read the first few books way back when but then I got distracted and sort of forgot about the series. Next thing I knew, it had finished. Maybe one of my goals next year will be to read the whole series.


  1. I love A song of Ice and Fire and A Series of Unfornate Events as well and I haven't fdinished either series although to be fair I just read A Game of Thrones in May. I love the Heroes of Olympus series as well.

  2. I totally agree with you on your first two picks! One of each of those was enough for me! I am so excited about The Mark of Athena-Heroes of Olympus is my favorite of all three of Riordan's series. I am currently working on book 4 in A Song of Ice and Fire. It's really different from 3, not as fast paced, but full of really crazy back story. I am hooked on this series! Great list. Here is mine http://wp.me/pzUn5-1dc
