Top Ten Tuesday | Series I Want to Finish Soon

Hosted weekly by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Happy Tuesday!

This week, the official TTT topic is "series or trilogies I don't plan to finish." Yet, as I looked through my books, I realized I have far more series on TBR that I still want to finish than those I don't. I have every intention of reading some of these books very soon, but we'll see how that goes (ha!).

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas: A fairy-tale-inspired fae story. I read A Court of Thorns and Roses last year and have been meaning to read the next two (and a half) books ever since.
Burn for Burn by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian: A high-school revenge story with three unlikely friends. I read Burn for Burn a few months ago, but need to read the next two.

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir: A brutal ancient-Rome-inspired YA fantasy story. I read An Ember in the Ashes & A Torch Against the Night a couple years ago, but A Reaper at the Gates just released and I think it's time for a reread to catch up.
The Giver Quartet by Lois Lowry: A dystopian classic for YA. The Giver has long been one of my favorite books, but I haven't made progress with the rest of the series yet. A reread of The Giver in January convinced me to remedy that.

The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo: A Russian-inspired YA fantasy story. I read and enjoyed Shadow and Bone last year, but just didn't have time to finish the series. Yet.
Jackaby by William Ritter: A Doctor-Who-meets-Sherlock-Holmes YA historical fantasy story. I had a lot of fun reading Jackaby and really need to keep reading the series.

King Raven by Stephen R. Lawhead: A story retelling the legend of Robin Hood. I started reading Hood a few months ago, but wasn't in the mood to finish it right then. I'm hoping to give it a second try soon.
The League of Princes by Christopher Healy: A fairy-tale mash-up adventure story. The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom is a whole lot of laugh-out-loud fun, so I'm excited to keep reading the series soon.

Legend by Marie Lu: A YA sci-fi/fantasy story. I read both Legend and Prodigy several years ago, but life got busy before I could read Champion. This is another series I'm hoping to reread in order to catch up.
The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart: A story involving gifted children and, what else, a mysterious society. The Mysterious Benedict Society is another book I enjoyed several years ago... I think it's clear now that I have a problem finishing series in a timely manner.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon: A time-travel romance story involving a swoon-worthy Scottish warrior. I finally read Outlander last month and need to read the next books ASAP.
The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani: A boarding-school story about training fairy tale heroes and villains. The School for Good and Evil is a fun twist on the familiar fairy-tale storyline, and I can't believe I haven't continued the series yet.

Summer by Jenny Han: A YA contemporary story about a girl and two boys she's known for years. So, I didn't love The Summer I Turned Pretty when I read it a couple years ago... But it's summer and I'm in the mood for contemporary romance, so I'm thinking I'll give the rest of the series a shot.
To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han: Another TA contemporary story about a girl and the boys in her past. I LOVED To All the Boys I've Loved Before and P.S. I Still Love You and I'm hoping to love Always and Forever, Lara Jean just as much.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas: A YA fantasy story involving an assassin and politics. I finally read Throne of Glass and (most of) Crown of Midnight last year. I did enjoy them, but my poor series-finishing skills kept me from reading more. I should probably catch up before another doorstop of a book gets released, haha.
The Young Elites by Marie Lu: A YA fantasy with an anti-heroine at the center. I read The Young Elites a couple years agoI remember liking it, but must have gotten distracted with other books because I didn't read the next books. At this point, I want to reread the first book before continuing the series.

What series have you not finished yet? Or have given up?


  1. I've read The Giver and Outlander and they were both excellent. Hope you enjoy them.

  2. hahaha - laughing at this because I feel your pain: "I think it's clear now that I have a problem finishing series in a timely manner." :-P

  3. I still really (really!) want to give Jenny's 'Summer' series a chance. Alas, I haven't yet. But I am currently reading 'Boys' and am LOVING it. SO. GOOD. Oh, and Marie's 'Legend' books are on my TBR list too!!
