As a massive fantasy fan, I LOVE series. I can’t get myself enough of series. What I do struggle with is staying up to date with them, or even finishing them at all. Once upon a time I was good at keeping up, then uni happened. Since then I’m behind in most of my series and it hurts me. It’s also made avoiding spoilers almost impossible.
A little while ago Alise posted some of her incomplete series, and I thought I should get to some of mine. These are all series that I started over a year ago and have yet to finish for various reasons. This list does not fully reflect the number of series I’m behind in (it’s shameful).
Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
I’ve read the first two books in this series but never got any further, despite the fact that I own the first four. I even own the first spin off book. Now I just tell myself that the last book is almost out, so I may as will buy the last few books and binge the entire series.
Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
What’s kind of embarassing is that I told my dad to read this after I read the first book, and he finished them all way before me. My excuse for this one is that I only bought the trilogy a year or so ago! Before then I borrowed the first book from a friend in high school and then no money and now no time (these deserved to be binged!)
Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan
The only book I haven’t read in this series is The Blood of Olympus. Because I’m scared okay. I’m terrified. So I keep procrastinating it. One day I’ll get to it….
Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen
I really enjoyed reading SCARLET. It has one of my favourite tropes and is a historical retelling of Robin Hood! I really want to continue but haven’t been able to buy the sequels yet (because I keep spending my money on other books oops)
Splintered by A.G. Howard
I really enjoyed this Alice in Wonderland retelling but I’m kind of scared to continue the series because I’m not sure if I’ll like the direction it goes. I’ve parts of the ending spoiled for me and now I’m indecisive.
The Elemental Trilogy by Sherry Thomas
Like SCARLET, this is a book I loved with the girl dressed as a boy trope that also combined historical books and a fantasy world. I’ve been hesitating buying the sequels because I’ve heard mixed things and no money.
Precious Stone Trilogy by Kiersten Gier
This is where you see how picky I can be when buying books. The main reason I haven’t bought the last two books in this trilogy is because I couldn’t find the editions that matched my copy of RUBY RED!
The Falconer by Elizabeth May
This is one series that I’m actually desperate continue. I was lucky enough to get an ARC through Edelweiss and ever since then I NEED THEM. The first book had such an intense ending and it pains me that I don’t have the money to buy all the books.
