Top Ten Tuesday: Series I Need to Finish

Happy Tuesday!! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is technically about book series that I want to start; however, the more pressing issue on my mind is the fact that there are SO MANY series that I need to FINISH. Once again I’m going to break the TTT status quo and switch it up a little by sharing the Top Ten Series I Need to Finish.Β 

What series do you really need to finish? What do you think of the books that I’ve mentioned? Let me know in the comments section below!

Yours,

HOLLY

    1. Those are two awesome books!! Illuminae has such a unique format and A Darker Shade of Magic has some amazing world-building centered around London. I hope you enjoy them!

    1. Yes! I’m not sure if this series follows the same characters as The Giver or if they are more like companion novels within the same world, but I’m intrigued nevertheless. πŸ™‚

  1. I’m currently reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and I’m just… not impressed. I’m told the series gets better though, so I’m hoping they’re right and that it’ll be worth it if I stick with it?? But if you have trouble getting through the first book, just know that it’s apparently a common problem!

      1. I’m going to see how I feel at the end of book 1 and evaluate then. I’m spending most of the book rolling my eyes. The plot is finally getting interesting, but I find none of the characters compelling!

    1. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is definitely a chunky, slow-moving book, but the climax at the end makes it all worth it! I hope you enjoy the rest of the series if you read it πŸ™‚

    1. I totally get what you mean about the Time Quintet! I think I’ve read up to the third book and it’s just such a bizarre story… but I feel like I should at least try to finish it because I’ve already made it this far πŸ™‚

  2. I finished Shades of Magic recently, and it was fantastic. I have been meaning to read The Infernal Devices forever but I plan to read it by the end of the year.

    Good luck with these series! Awesome list.

    1. It’s so good to hear that you loved the Shades of Magic series! I’ve heard amazing things about it and I really enjoyed the first book, so I can’t wait to read the rest πŸ™‚

    1. OMG I LOVED the second book in the Ender series!!! I think I’ve read up to the third book and so far the second is definitely my favorite ❀

  3. I’m pretty much caught up on all the series I follow. Just finished Sandman Slim’s last book yesterday and I’m reading Moonbreaker today, by Simon R. Green. This Green series isn’t as good as his finished Nightside books. They were fantastic. This series is just okay in comparison. I’m going to check out some of your suggestions. No to the girl with the dragon tattoo, however. I haven’t met anyone who liked it.

    1. Ahhh congrats on being all caught up! That’s so awesome!! I feel like I’ll never be completely caught up with the series I’d ideally like to read– there are just so many πŸ™‚

      1. It’s so hard when you don’t come in at the beginning. I was fortunate. I started right away, with my favorites. Some series just fall away, becoming too repetitive, or they just run out of steam. I’ve read a few where the ending makes me sorry I even bothered reading all the books. If you started reading the two series I mentioned you would be looking at 29 books right away, so that’s a lot to read in order to catch up. :/

  4. Awesome list! Shades of Magic is pretty much my all time favorite series (along with the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness). I’m working on catching up & finishing Across the Universe by Beth Revis…and I just started Sabaa Tahir’s Ember in the Ashes series & Throne of Glass..and others. So many series all the time. πŸ™‚

    1. I haven’t heard of the All Souls Trilogy before but I’ll have to check it out. I just read An Ember in the Ashes but I don’t think I’m going to read the sequel.
      Thanks!!

  5. Ah yes, I definitely still have a huge list of series I still need to finish myself, such as the Starbound trilogy and the Illuminae files. πŸ™‚ I finished the Shades of Magic series and absolutely loved it, so I hope you’ll still enjoy this one as well!

    1. I have to finish those two series, too!! I know I’ll get swept up in them once I continue reading them and then it will take me no time at all, but it’s just the first step that always takes forever πŸ™‚

  6. hehehe I wish the third Illuminae files book would come out so I could finish it!! πŸ˜‰ These are such awesome books- I really hope you enjoy Gemina and the rest of the Shades of Magic series- they were awesome. I definitely need to continue the ender’s game series at some point.

  7. I’m planning on reading Illuminae next month and I’m super excited! (I actually have my own copy of it HALLELUJAH.) And I’m sort of torn on whether or not I should start These Broken Stars??? I mean it looks cool but like… it seems really focused on romance and I’m like AGH NO. AND YES ADSOM ADSOM IS GREAT. I mean I think ACOL and AGOS were the best but STILL.

    1. These Broken Stars does have a lot of romance, but the outer space vibe is also really cool and I think each book follows different characters, so that could be interesting. I’ve only read the first book so fingers crossed that the rest are just as good! πŸ™‚

  8. I still haven’t read anything by Schwab yet, I mist me one of the last readers to pick up one of her books. I absolutely loved Illuminae but haven’t read Gemina yet. They’re such physically MASSIVE books that you need to work yourself up to getting stuck into it. The Giver is another series I didn’t continue either actually, I must get to that one as well. Great choices, really enjoyed them.

    Lovely to meet you through #SFATW

    1. Schwab’s books are SO GOOD!!! I definitely recommend A Darker Shade of Magic, but Vicious is probably my favorite ❀

      Lovely to meet you as well! πŸ™‚

  10. Do you intend to read the ‘new’ Millennium trilogy books or just the original 3? I’ve read the fourth (or first depending on how you look at it) which did a pretty good job of fitting into the others but was generally pretty unremarkable.
