Top Ten Tuesday- Series I Haven't Finished

Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today (Sept. 25th) I'm one of them :)

Top Ten Series I Haven't Finished

1.  The Shopaholic Series By: Sophie Kinsella
Ok I got the first book at the library and loved it so much I immediately went out and bought Shopaholic Takes Manhattan only to find out I don't like Becky as much in NYC and it's not the same after she lands her man... and after that the series just goes on and on with a wedding and a baby, and I just like the first book.

2.  The Dream Catcher Series By: Lisa McMann (Wake, Fade, Gone)
Really liked the first book, but was kind of disillusioned with the direction it looked to be going.  More of a crime-solving type book (and I think the Cabel-thing doesn't work out which I don't want).

3.  The Chemical Garden Series By: Lauren DeStefano
Just not really my cup of tea.  It was ok, but nothing special... Plus she's gonna die at age 20, so what's the point?


4. The Twilight Series By: Stephanie Meyer
Just couldn't do it.  I HATED the first book and for some reason still tried to read the 2nd one!  Well it didn't work out at I only got like 50 pages in and called it quits.  Just bad writing and Bella was too damn annoying.

5.  The Jessica Darling Series By: Megan McCafferty
LOVED this series.... until Fourth Comings.  I hated the way Jessica was made to look in that book.  She was so damn judgemental and at this point I don't want her with Marcus anyhow because she doesn't deserve him.  (I will still prob. finish this one up because I loved the first 2 books especially).

6.  PLL and The Lying Game By: Sara Shepard
Mostly because:  She. Won't. Stop. Writing. New. Books.
Even after the series is proclaimed over, it's announced that 4 more books are coming out.  I'm getting annoyed.

7.  The Princess Diaries Series By: Meg Cabot
Probably because I think I might be too old for these :(  And it's a LONG series!

What I learned from doing this is: I am pretty good at finishing series.  Or maybe I just don't start a lot of them unless I know it's something I'm gonna like.  Either way here's a few series I want to read:


  1. I hadn't seen the cover for the last Chemical Garden book... love it!! Here is my list!
    Angela's Anxious Life

  2. I want to read Delirium, too. Second Helpings is next. I haven't started it yet -- I've been behind. Not much reading time lately. I have no idea why. I'm excited to read it though!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my page Michelle. I also couldn't finish WAKE, I couldn't get into the writing style. Sighs....

  4. I've got a couple of these on my TBR list! But mostly I haven't read these. Except Twilight.

    Check out my TTT. New follower by the way.

    Sandy @ Somewhere Only We Know

  5. I really liked The Dream Catcher series and the Chemical Garden series.

    Good for you for staying away from the Twilight Saga. I wish I had...

    I gave up on the Pretty Little Liar series 2 books in.

    New follower! :)

  6. Like you, I read the first Shopaholic book and really enjoyed it, but I haven't felt the need to keep reading. I also only read the first Twilight book and didn't particularly like it. The Princess Diaries books are so much fun (though a bit of a guilty pleasure at my age)! However, I found that I was perfectly happy not to read beyond the third book, where Mia finally gets her man. :)

  7. It's safe to say I didn't like a few of these books, Twilight, Confessions of a Shopaholic and I've heard badddd things about the Dream Catcher series about how much worse they get as they go along, so I won't be bothering.

    Thanks for stopping by and great list.
