Top 10 Tuesday | Series I Need to Finish

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly book tag that was run by The Broke and the Bookish but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provides a different bookish theme those deep-seated desires to list! Anyone is welcome to join in on their blog, in the comments or any other way. 

– Top 10 Series I’m Yet to Finish – 

I’ve been struggling quite a bit with TTT recently as I just haven’t been feeling the chosen topics for each week but I really love posting something each week. So this week I’ve decided to just choose my own topic! At the beginning of the year, I made a little BuJo spread of all the series I needed to finish, but inevitably rather than finish any series I have started even more series… So now my life is drowning in a sea of unfinished series. Also after finishing writing this I’m preettyyyyy sure I’ve actually already done this topic but… it’s always relevant so here we go again!

1. Divergent

Read: 2/4

Let’s get this out of the way first. I feel like this series will be the hill I will end up dying on because it is not an enjoyable series and dragging my way through with it is akin to literary torture. I know you all have, justifiably, strong feelings on the Divergent series and part of me wants to give up but I also I don’t want to be defeated by Roth.


2. The Ember Quartet

books x 3 (10)

Read: 1/3

I read An Ember in the Ashes last year and enjoyed it enough that I wanted to read A Torch Against the Night. I haven’t yet gotten around to it but I’m hoping to make time for it for the Ramadan Readathon!


3. The Mortal Instruments

Read: 0/6

Technically, I haven’t even started this series yet but I got the entire set for my birthday so I need to get my skates on and actually start making my way through the books at some point. I’ve heard quite mixed reviews of the series so am not quite sure what to expect.


4. The Edge Chronicles

Read: 4/12

I love the Edge Chronicles so damn much but boy am I am super behind on the books. I think the last one I read was about 8 years ago so I’ve got a lot of catching up to do but I know that the books are phenomenal so this is a series I’m definitely going to stick with.

Ngl, I don’t love this series but I’ve started it now and I already own ACOMAF so I feel I might as well finish what I started :’)


6. Xandri Corelel

books x 3 (11)

Read: 1/3

This is definitely one of my all-time favourite series so I’m super excited about catching up with Testing Pandora and reading Tone of Voice. Kaia Sønderby is such a brilliant writer and her books really deserve a lot more love ❤


7. Legend

books x 3 (12)

Read: 0/3

I’ve included this series as I’ve literally just started Legend and I know that I am definitely already invested enough that I will want to read the other books in the series at some point!


8. Worldmaker

books x 3 (13)

Read: 1/3

Another series I started, enjoyed but then never picked up the second book because I am trash. I read Starborn last year after I got a free copy of it and am hoping to read the next two by the end of this year (we’ll see…)

Book: 5/7

I feel like anyone who caught up with the ASOIAF series deserves a medal because good god this is a marathon and a half. I managed to get ALL THE WAY to A Dance with Dragons over 6 months but then became so saturated with GoT’s that I couldn’t bear to survive the book. Biggest mistake EVER because now there’s even more books and tbh the tv series killed it for me.


10. Planetfall

books x 3 (14)

Planetfall was a fantastic, diverse science-fiction book that I requested on a complete whim on NetGalley and fell in love with it. I can’t wait to read After Atlas and Before Mars has recently been released so I have two books to catch up on!

Of course, those aren’t the only series that I’ve started and am yet to finish. A quick list of others includes:

  • Chronicle of the Unhewn Throne by Brian Staveley
  • The Winternight Trilogy by Katharine Arden
  • Miss Peregrine’s Perculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
  • The Keys to the Kingdom by Garth Nix
  • Abhorsen by Garth Nix

I *think* that’s it for now… and that’s not even counting the series I’ve yet to start either :’)

  1. Oh so familiar. I am also drowning in a see of unfinished books. Though I did just finish one today that was on my list. Yeay me. I read the Divergent trilogy and could never bother with Four. I am just choosing to act like that didn’t exist.

    I have Failure to Communicate as a kindle ebook and I am very curious about that one.

    Lots of luck with finishing these this year. 😀

  2. Hrmmm….I think I just need to finish The Three-Body Problem series by Cixin Lui, The Themis Files by Sylvain Neuvel, and the next Becky Chambers book. But these are good problems to have!

    I am also planning to start the Luny books by Ian McDonald, we’ll see. I am going back to uni this year so I need to start curbing my book shopping 😦

    Planetfall looks awesome too!


  3. Shameless self-promo [seriously, I’m good at it every time someone mentions struggling with series]: in September I’m hosting a sequel challenge!
    Because I totally feel you on the series-struggle. I constantly get distracted by other books. It’s horrible. I don’t even want to know how many series I’ve yet to finish. I’ve been stubbornly ignoring that tab in my spreadsheet. 😀


  4. Oh my god, I got halfway through Insurgent and just straight up quit. If you end up finishing the series I applaud you because Roth definitely defeated me. Lol. And I’m with you on The Winternight Trilogy and the Abhorsen series! I started those and really need to finish them! It’s funny, someone just recently recommended the Edge Chronicles to me not too long ago. I’ll have to check them out!!


  5. Oh, I am for sure planning on doing one of these posts at some point, they’ve been popping up everywhere.

    Good luck with TMI is all I am saying. I personally don’t understand how people in this day and age are obsessed with them (although I get if it was a childhood series…). I am buddy reading the entire chronicles with some friends and would not be making any progress if it wasn’t for the conversations tearing apart Clare’s plot holes.


  6. I feel you with drowning in unfinished series. I’m in the same boat with you! I also made a list of series that I needed to finish too at the beginning of the year in the hopes that I will actually get to it. I feel so bad starting new series when I have so many that I haven’t finished. So lately I just haven’t been starting new ones and have been reading more standalones. It does suck, because there are so many series I really want to read but I feel so guilty starting them. I’m scared the guilt will drive me crazy and make me hate the books because I’ll be distracted thinking about the books that I should be reading instead. LOL, sigh.

    I loved Ember in the Ashes, but I ended up DNF Torch. I read about half of the book and it was just way too boring for me, so I couldn’t finish the series. Totally sucked, because I loved Ember so much. Same with A Court of Thorns and Roses. I loved the first book, but I absolutely did not like the sequel much at all! Probably won’t be finishing that one either. I hope you like them though! So many people do.


  7. The key for me to reading the asoiaf series was to read a palate cleanser book or two in between each book. I definitely would not have been able to make it through t hem all without something to break them up!
