Top Ten Series I Haven't Finished

When I first heard about this topic, I was excited yet panicked. There are several series I haven't finished, so I knew I had some answers, but at the same time I wasn't sure if I had ten. But I do. And for some of them, please don't hurt me.

1. The Vampire Kisses by Ellen Schreiber
This is one of those series that I enjoy, but don't love. It's a short, simple read, but I just don't love the writing. Why haven't I finished it? I don't really know. I think that because I don't love the books, they just don't have priority on my TBR list. But if I need a light, fun read, these are one of the books to go to.
Last Book Read: Royal Blood. (I think.)

2. The Immortals by Alyson Noel
I read the first one, then part of the second one, then stopped. I don't really know why; maybe a due date at the library? I think the first one was okay, but I didn't really love it. I'd like to finish the series, but I don't know when.
Last Book Read: Blue Moon. (Partially.)

3. Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready
I wish I had finished this series. I don't know why I didn't read the first after reading the second; I think I liked it, but I'm not sure how much. However, after all the Team Kilt awesomeness and with more Zachary, I want to read the others. I feel like whenever the books come around I have something else I need to read first. But hopefully I can scratch this series off my list soon!
Last Book Read: Shift.

4. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
I think I want to finish this series simply to find out what happens. I was disappointed by Across the Universe and had a hard time getting into it. It was a bit more climactic at the end, and it left me wanting answers. Otherwise, I'm not sure that I'd read the next books.
Last Book Read: Across the Universe.

5. Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith

When I read these books, I liked them. Then there was a gap between some of them, and I fell behind. Then the show came on, and it was waaay better. And now that there's the writer drama, I'm not sure that the series will be finished. Plus, I heard about things that happen. I don't want them to be real.
Last Book Read: I don't even know.

6. House of Night by P.C. and Kristin Cast
While I wasn't a fan of the writing, I liked the story in these books. However, things changed a lot from the first book to the more recent ones, and I hate when that happens. Luckily, I like them enough to finish them. Some day.
Last Book Read: Burned.

7. Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
This is another one of those series where I read the first book and didn't love it. However, after a cousin saying I needed to read them and with an awesome movie trailer, I just may finish the series. Especially since it's coming to an end.
Last Book Read: Beautiful Creatures.

8. Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz
Oh, this series. Where do I begin? The writing style didn't bother me much in the first few books, but after Revelations, (I think) everything changed. The books became what I can only describe as too serious and historical, and I feel like the characters and their voices were lost. Some series need to end, or have gone on for too long; this is one of those series. I'll still finish it because I used to love them and read most of the books, but I'm glad it's over.
Last Book Read: Lost in Time. (Started, not finished, twice.)

9. Fallen by Lauren Kate
This series was disappointing. With the hype and the gorgeous cover, I thought Fallen was going to be amazing, and I'm sad to say it wasn't. Though I was curious to see what happened with Daniel and Luce, I read the second book; I barely remember anything that happened. I want to finish this series, but I have no idea when; it's kind of boring and not my favorite.
Last Book Read: Torment.

10. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
Ah, the big one. Yes, I haven't read the whole Harry Potter series. (Yes, put a spell on me!) I read the first four books in elementary school and liked them, but I wasn't a big reader at that time. It took what seemed like forever for the fifth book to come out, and I didn't feel like picking up. I hope to sometime soon reread the first four books and complete the series, because I've heard it's kind of a big deal.
Last Book Read: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

There you have it--my top ten series I haven't finished! (Though there are more!) Tell me in the comments--what series haven't you finished?

  1. A great list! the only series I am up to date on is Across the Universe by Beth Revis.

    My TTT

  2. I also haven't finished The Vampire Diaries, I love tv show though. For the Harry Potter, I'll gladly put a spell on you! :D and Fallen, well it's my guilty pleasure! :)

  3. I swear The Caster Chronicles is on 90% of the lists I have seen. LOL I also need to read on, before the movie I hope! The weird thing for me, I read the 2nd Harry Potter book in college for a Children's Lit class (before the first, she told us it wasn't an issue). At this time, they were filming the first movie. I liked it, obsessed about the movies but didn't read on until I saw Goblet of Fire. I would constantly reread the last 2 books. They are my favorite of the series, by far. I also loved the 5th but Umbridge made me rage so hard I had a hard time rereading it. LOL I hope you can continue! :)

    My Top Ten

  4. Harry Potter, AGAIN? Oh my. I keep seeing this one and I silently want to cry, haha. I love them so much <3 GO read it :D Do yourself a pleasure!

    My TTT.
