Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is series we've given up on or don't plan to finish. I have a bad habit of starting series and not finishing them, either because I just forget about them, lose interest, whatever. Here are some series I'm giving up on:
Red Rising: I recently finished the first book, and it was kind of a slog for me. I felt like I was doing a lot of skimming and the world didn't really make sense to me.
The Royals: The first book, Paper Princess, just felt too trashy to me and I have no desire to continue with the series.
Ravenspire: The Shadow Queen was bland and uninspired, so although the next book delves into a new fairytale, I don't have high hopes.
The 5th Wave: The first book was perfectly fine, but I don't see a need to continue.
Dividing Eden: Even though this is only a duology, and part of me wants to complete it just because it's only one other book, the first installment was repetitive and scattered.
Red Queen: Mare is one of the worst characters ever, and I'm tired of her.
Three Dark Crowns: This series just keeps getting longer and longer, and for me the writing is just not good enough to want to continue.
The Great Library: Although I actually kind of enjoyed Ink and Bone, it had so much going on that it made me tired just reading it, and I'm not dying to know what happens next.
Dorothy Must Die: Considering I didn't even make it through the first book, there's little reason for me to continue with this series.
Me Before You: This is the only outlier in the group. I loved Me Before You, and I thought it ended perfectly. I don't need to know what happens to Lou next, I already had hope for her. I worry that if I read the next two books, and they aren't as good as the original, the magic will be lost.
Are you giving up on any of these series?
