I have nothing against any of these series, and in fact, most of them I love! I’m just not interested in continuing because I have so many other books I want to read that take priority over these series.
Yes, this is also on my books I haven’t finished yet but want to blog post, but while I do want to finish the series, I want to finish it mostly because I’m so close to the end, instead of wanting to finish it because I love it, I’m somewhere in the middle of the audiobook for Ruin and Rising, and I just don’t connect with any of the characters, and to be honest I think that this series is way overhyped.
I did really enjoy the first book, but I honestly have no idea if I will end up continuing on with the series, mainly because I just don’t have that need to know what happens next.
I got this book in a subscription box a while ago and thought it was a really unique fantasy! It’s been a while since I’ve read it though, so I don’t think that I really want to continue and read the second book, Umbertouched.
This is a super popular series, and not to sound too hipster, but I read book one before it was cool. Or at least at a time when not a ton of people were talking about it. Now the second book is all over the place and I really don’t have any desire to continue on with the series, even though I did enjoy book one.
Okay so this series shows up on this list because right now, at this very moment, I don’t have any desire to continue. BUT. There is a huge but here, I do think that I will continue on with this series at some point because I did like the characters and the fact that it is a genderbent version of Vlad the Impaler. And yes, I know that the covers are not in order and yes, it bothers me too.
When I read this book I remember saying in my review that I would be continuing and buying The Defiant which is book two as soon as it came out! Well, that time came and went and I still have not read or bought the second book and I don’t think that I will. Not because I hate the book, but again, because I really don’t have the urge to do so.
Don’t hate me for this one. When I read the book when it came out, I hopped right on the bandwagon of people who loved this book. After a while though, I started realizing that I didn’t really love it as much as I thought and I was just really caught up in the hype. Because of that, I have no intentions of continuing this series.
When I bought this, it was a total cover buy! The story itself was dark and eerie, and at the time I just couldn’t get enough! I’ve actually read this book twice, but now that I have more books on my shelves to read, this one just went straight to the backburner and I don’t think it’s coming off.
Another book that was super hyped up, but thankfully I didn’t just go with the flow on this one. The only book I would read set in this world is if a book of the fairytales was released. I would be all over that!
Man, when I finished this one I immediately wanted to buy the second book and start reading! Unfortunately, book two wasn’t published at the time and, lo and behold, months later I no longer have the need to finish the series.
I really wanted to love this series, but I went into it expecting something completely different than what I got. I finished the second book and while I own book 3, at this point I don’t think I want to continue. I do kind of want to give the first two another go at some point to see if my opinion has changed, but not right now.
Again, I didn’t love this book as much as I wanted to. Maybe I need to actually read Alice in Wonderland before reading origin stories for the Queen of Hearts? This book is pretty much the main reason why I haven’t read Heartless yet. Definitely need to read that source material first.
Scotland, faeries and steampunk elements? It was a match made in heaven! Alas, I didn’t continue straight on with the series and now I don’t know if I ever will. *sigh*
I mean, I’ll probably be dead before the sixth and seventh books are published, so why even bother? Just kidding! Even if I’m long gone, I would 100% come back from the grave to finish this series. My watch has not ended just yet!
