Series I’ve Given Up On

Hey Everyone! There’s this ongoing ‘Top Ten Tuesday‘ trend in the book community.  This week, June 25: Series I’ve Given Up On/Don’t Plan to Finish
Is it okay that this was super easy to list? Like the titles just kept on rolling. Disclaimer: Just because I didn’t like it, doesn’t mean its horrible. And I also mean no disrespect to anyone including the authors. I could’ve hated this but loved something else written by you.
Anyway, I’m soo excited to see what you and everyone else has in their list. So without further ado, heres mine

Top Ten Series I’ve Given Up On:

  1. Elementals Series by Michelle Madow 
    • This started out great!! I mean The Prophecy of Shadows was wonderful and gave me the much needed boost to accept the challenge of reading a long series. However, its sequel, even though was good, did not. So now I keep finding myself postponing the whole series until I guess…I won’t be reading soon.
  2. Fallen Series by Lauren Kate
    • At one point in my life, this was something I was obsessed with. I believe I stopped reading this after the third book, Passion came out. It just got to the point where it was too religious for me. 

  3. House of Night Series by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast
    • I was in love with this series. Everything was soo new to me and insane that I stayed up all night thinking about it all. But then the fourth book happened and everything went downhill. There was just something about a fourth love interest that snapped something in me and made me go: Enough Is Enough. I could tell that the drama was only going to grow and when I found out that this series has TWELVE books in it, I just packed up my bags and left.                      
  4. The Vampire Diaries Series by L.J. Smith
    • This got ridiculous! Honestly, I’m not even sure what the hell was happening with everyone in the books. Not to mention, the various weird names and series within a series that made it almost impossible to follow. I mean we had the:
      • normal TVD
      • TVD: The Return, then
      • The Vampire Diaries: The Hunter, followed by
      • The Vampire Diaries: The Salvation and finally followed and preceded by
      • The Vampire Diaries: Stefan’s Diaries(Prequel)
    • It just got too much. And by then it got to the point where the show was better than the books and then life got soo confusing. I needed a detox.
  5. Night World Series also by L.J. Smith
    • This book didn’t even make it past the first few chapters for me before I decided that it sucked. Yup, I bought the whole series only to leave it gathering dust on my bookshelf.                    – .

  1. I did love The Night World series, but I’ve been forever frustrated to learn that there’s still an unwritten 10th book and that the original will have someone else write it. I’m resigned to never finishing it, I suppose, but it’s been so long since I read it that it won’t matter anyway.

    I completely agree on The House of Night, but I stopped buying and reading them when the fifth book came out. I did start skim reading through them as new books came out, and it got worse. Someone, please, put that series out of its misery!

    1. Yea!!!!!! I have no idea why it’s still going on. I’m impressed that you managed to skim through some of them at least. I personally just dropped it on the spot. I don’t have that much energy.
      For some reason, a lot of LJ Smith’s books are being written by ghost authors… I don’t get why though.. like what went wrong..?


  2. Lately I’ve been so curious about the Fallen series in a teen-angst kind of way, but I can already tell I probably won’t like it. I’ll probably read it anyway and be like, WHY DID I DO THIS??? Lol. I’ve read the entire Nightworld series and remember loving it, but it’s been sooooooo long! I’d probably read it now and hate it 😂

  3. I gave up on The Vampire Diaries so long ago that sometimes I forget that I even read them! There was just so much going on in that series that it was impossible to keep up with it. I should have probably added it to my TTT too but I forgot 🙂
