I love a good series - I like getting to know the characters and seeing the stories evolve and continue. Here are five series that I started recently but am wavering over whether or not to continue. I'd love to hear your thoughts on whether I should give up or soldier on!
Series: Delirium by Lauren Oliver
I read the first book and thought it was okay, but I definitely wasn't blown away by it. It seemed kind of slow-moving. Does the action pick up in the next installment?
Series: Starbound by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
I actually really enjoyed These Broken Stars and even though there were some unanswered questions, I felt like it was a good stand-alone book. It seems like the next two stories feature different characters, so I wasn't sure if I wanted to continue.
Series: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
I was really excited when I heard about this book: I love The Wizard of Oz and thought it sounded really fun. But I DNF'ed this book around page 100! The author just seemed to be trying way too hard to be edgy. Unless someone has a really convincing argument, I doubt I would pick this up again.
Series: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
I though the first book was decent (although could have used more world-building), but I had a really difficult time getting through the second book and almost gave up on it. I kind of feel like now that I'm two books in, I should continue when the next book comes out in 2017, but I'm kind of dreading it!
Series: The Great Library by Rachel Caine
The first book had a unique-sounding premise, and I did enjoy it. But - I felt like there was SO MUCH going on; non-stop action and every other page it seemed like something important was happening. It was just so much to keep track of. I actually felt tired after I read this.
So, to continue or not to continue?
