A while ago, I posted an article listing some series I (probably) won't finish. Even though I'm kind of cringing at my old writing style, I can safely say that I actually finished one of the series mentioned - The Selection! I ended up really enjoying this trilogy and all of its drama, they were wonderfully light reads!
But now that we are all stuck in our houses with little else to do than twiddle our thumbs and watch hours tick by, I decided to do the impossible: finish all the series I never finished.
There are way, way too many series that I haven't finished, but that I own every book of. It's such a weird thing, I'll be head over heels for a series and once I get to the finale, I'll just move on to reading something else, and never get back to it.
Am I crazy? Am I missing a brain function? Am I deeply afraid of authors and what they may do to their characters after the ending that was in Allegiant!?
To be honest it's probably the last one.
However, I am now taking it on myself to finish all these series I just never picked up the last book of! Some series are gonna require re-reading, because let's be honest, I don't have a superbrain with a perfect memory.
So without further ado, here is the list - and oh boy what a list - of series I would like to finish during
1. Heroes of Olympus, by Rick Riordan
Before you rally up your cabin to do all sort of unspeakable things to me, hear me out. I never read Blood of Olympus for one simple reason - I heard about the ending, and I'm in absolute denial. I don't want that ending. That's not what's supposed to happen. But this PJO ultimate fangirl feels like she's cheating the world by never having read it. So I'm going to re-read the first 4 books soon, to eventually read that dreadful ending i'm so afraid of.
2. Maximum Ride Forever, by James Patterson
I was one of those Maximum Ride fangirls as a kid. Having bird wings? Sign me up. When Patterson released the last book of the franchise, I was hyped! I ordered it the minute it was released... and never read it. It's tempting to re-read the whole series, but a whole 9 books is a lot, and I remember most of the series, so I'll just look for summaries.
3. A Reaper at the Gates, by Sabaa Tahir
I absolutely loved An Ember in the Ashes a Torch Against the Night! I find these books awesome with their roman influences and the story it provides. But I have yet to read book 3, which I would love to read before the 4th book comes out this autumn!
4. Wayfarer, by Alexandra Bracken
Passenger was a beautiful, whimsical read. I want to know what happens at the end of the duology. It's as simple as that. I will re-read Passenger though, as it was pretty and it deserves a re-read.
5. Snow Like Ashes, by Sara Raasch
This trilogy is special because I've ONLY read the first book! But I remember really really loving it, so I am to crash through the entire trilogy soon! Plus the aesthetic of these books is fantastic, I swoon every time I see them all lined up on my shelf.
6. Eon, by Alison Goodman
Eon is an epic book about chinese mythology and dragons. That's all you need to know. The second book of this epic duology is Eona, which I haven't yet read. I am ashamed of this, because I know I would adore it, so I will read it soon.
I do have some other series I'd love to finish, but they are not as high up on my priority list. The Iron Fey, The Fire Within, The giver are all on my list of series I'd love to finish, someday. But hey, all of the books mentioned above tally up to at least 13 (depends on what I decide to do with Maximum Ride), not even counting the ARCs I recieved and standalones I want to read!
Do you have a goal for the upcoming months? I'd love to hear about it!
Stay bookish, and stay home!
