Today is Tuesday time to choose my Top 5 (or more) and I am posting late …as usual!
This week Shanah @bionicbookworm asks us about our top 5 series we need to finish!
It made me think about several things as in: what is a series? Are two books considered a series or “just” a duet? Or three books? Or more?
What about stand alone books but with connected characters and happening in the same place and time? Are they considered series or stand alones?
And that’s fine and dandy to speak about series I need to finish but do these need to be already completely published? Or may I choose one with only the first book published?
And what about series I should finish, because that’s the reasonable thing to do you know but don’t want to? Do I speak about them?
Or what about stand alone books that I would love getting a series?
See? My brain is fuming!
OK let’s give this some structure…
What is considered a series?
Once more my friend Merriem (she knows really everything) define series as:
Already if you read 1a the stand alone connected would be considered as series!
Same with duet or trilogies as “a number” means more than one!
So let’s roll with a wide definition here and tackle the task at hand! I will begin with the bad moving slowly to the good!
1 Series I will never finish!
The Crossfire Series by Sylvia Day!
If I loved the first book (Gideon is drool worthy) I will never finish that series as a matter of principle! It was meant to be a trilogy and it became an “X” logy. I feel used and like the author just wants to make money!
Reasonable Doubt series by Whitney G
My problem here was the book was so small it was clearly overpriced! She could have made all three books into one book of 500 pages. Once again I felt dupped.
Elite King’s Club by Amo Jones
I know many praise this series and I guess it can be addictive if you want to know the truth but …there were inconsistencies in the story, aspects really hard to believe in etc. Just ..not for me!
2. Duologies that I need/will finish!
The Body Painter by Pepper Winters
It ended on a cliffhanger and I just need to finish it!
Stormeheart by Cora Carmack
It’s been such a long time since I read ROAR that I think I’ll need to re-read it again before Rage!
3. Trilogies or more already published that I need to finish
Legend by Marie Lu
I just need to read Champion and I would be set! I am ashamed to say that I already own champion but did not get to read it yet!!!
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
Again just the last one remains to be read.
The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
The good news is that I have read The Raven Boys last month and adored it! I plan on reading the other books one book per month!
The Secondborn series by Amy Bartol
Again just the last one to read and I got it in the mail some weeks ago!
4. Series not yet complete that I NEED to finish
The Daevabad trilogy by SA Chakraborty
It is all Alexandra’s fault as she pushed that book on me and I never looked back!
Skyward by Brandon Sanderson
I loved that book and I need the others immediately
The Honors by Rachel Caine and Ann Aguirre …so unique!
The Poppy War by RF Kuang …but so hard to read!
The Aurora Cycle by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kauffman because ….Kal!
Pfew that’s it for today!
Leave me a comment about your fav and I promise to visit and comment back tomorrow!
Thanks for reading!
