Hi everyone! I hope you’ve all had a good week since I last did one of these, mine has been relatively quiet, but I’m getting to see my friends again on Thursday which I’m really excited for.
Anyway, it’s a very special Top Ten Tuesday today, as we’re celebrating 10 years & 500 topics! I’ve only been participating since 2015, but it’s always been the highlight of my week on the blog and has connected me to so many other bloggers. So congrats to Jana and the other ladies from the former The Broke and The Bookish on this amazing milestone. Long may it continue!
To celebrate, I’m tackling an old topic that I missed, Top Ten Series I Need To Finish. For this, I’m only including series that have all their books out because if I dive into unfinished series as well then this list would never end:
- The Great Library Series-Rachel Caine: Books To Finish:-#3-5
So I started the Great Library Series back in 2016 and I read the second book pretty soon after, but for whatever reason, even though I bought the third book I never got around to reading it. Then the fourth and fifth books came out and I still hadn’t read the third one! I did enjoy this series, so I want to finish it, but I just haven’t got around to it yet.
2. The Daevabad Trilogy-S.A. Chakraborty: Books To Finish: #3
Okay so technically I’m still in the process of reading the second book, but that should happen this week and then the third one will be the only one I have left to read. The end of Book 2 is shaping up to be pretty exciting, so I can’t wait to see what the final book has in store.
3. The Girl From Everywhere Duology-Heidi Heilig: Books To Finish: #2
I read the first book in this duology way back in 2017, but I found it really hard to find the second book afterward. I finally got my hands on it this year, so hopefully I will get around to finishing Nix’s story soon.
4. Everless Duology-Sara Holland: Books To Finish: #2
I read the first Everless book way back before it was released at the end of 2017, but never got around to the sequel. I’m hoping to rectify that at some point soon because I really enjoyed the first book.
5. Young Sherlock Holmes Series-Andy Lane: Books To Finish: #8
I was really into these books for a while and I read almost all of the series, up to number 7. I have the eighth book, but I never got around to it and then I found out that the series had been dropped by the publisher and so it was going to be left unfinished and I hate having to read a series with no closure. Still I would like to find out what Young Sherlock got up to on his last adventure at some point.
6. Daughter of The Pirate King Duology-Tricia Levenseller: Books To Finish: #2
I read the first book in this duology back in 2017, but then I never came across the second book in the series, so I never finished it. At some point I would like to get my hands on the second book and find out how Alosa’s adventures conclude.
7. The Archived Duology-VE Schwab: Books To Finish: #2
My reasoning for not getting around to this one is again that the publisher dropped the series and I don’t like having to leave a series unfinished. Still, I know that Victoria has talked about wanting to get Book 3 out there at some point, so I’m sure I will eventually get around to The Unbound.
8. Every Trilogy-Ellie Marney: Books To Finish: #2 & #3
I read the first book in this trilogy way back in 2017 and I do have the second book but it’s in storage in Scotland and I haven’t got it back yet. Hopefully when I get the rest of my books back out of storage then I’ll finally be able to get around to finishing this trilogy.
9. Pegasus Series-Kate O’Hearn: Books To Finish: #4-#6
It’s been a while since I read this series and to be honest, they are probably a little young for me now but I really enjoyed the first three when I read them and I hate leaving series unfinished when I start them!
10. The Lunar Chronicles-Marissa Meyer: Books To Finish: #3 (plus novellas)
I wasn’t entirely sure about Cinder but I enjoyed Scarlet and I would like to finish this series, I just haven’t got around to it yet. I think I’m going to do the rest of the books on audio as the third and fourth books are rather chunkier than I usually prefer to read.
11. The Arc of A Scythe Trilogy-Neal Shusterman: Books To Finish: #2 & #3
I read the first book ages ago and I’ve had the second book for a while, but both of the latter two books in this trilogy are quite chunky and I just haven’t got around to them yet. Hopefully I will soon!
12. Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy-Laini Taylor: Books To Finish: #3
I read the second book of this series back in 2018, and was massively disappointed in it so I’ve kind of put off the final book in the trilogy. I still want to finish it for closure’s sake but my expectations are pretty low.
13. Between The Lines Duology-Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer: Books To Finish: #2
I read the first book in this duology way back in 2012 and it was super cute, if maybe a little young for me. I bought the second book, but again, it’s up in storage in Scotland so I haven’t had access to it for a while. When I finally get my books back in the same place, I definitely want to get around to finishing this duology.
So there we go, those are the series I want to finish. Have you read any of these? Did you enjoy them? What topic did you choose for today’s celebration? Have you been with TTT since the start or did you join more recently? Let me know in the comments!
I’ll be back next week with another Top Ten Tuesday, this time with our annual Most Anticipated Releases For The Second Half of The Year.
