Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at the other blog I write for, The Broke and the Bookish.
I don’t see quitting as a bad thing. I look at it more like I’m cleaning up my life and getting rid of things that do not bring me joy and happiness. I’ve got a bunch of series on my shelf that I’m just not motivated to finish. Perhaps I read a spoiler and I’m not ok with the direction the series is going in. Perhaps I’m not a fan of that genre anymore. Perhaps it has been too long since I read the first book and I’m not interested in trying to remember. Or maybe I just didn’t love the first book or the second book enough. Regardless of the reason, it’s fine to quit. And I hope you feel that same! Why waste time reading books w’re not interested in? The following series are ones I don’t plan to finish. It’s nothing personal. I’m sure they are great. They just aren’t for me anymore.
1. Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth
I read and really enjoyed Divergent, but I read some spoilers and bad reviews for the last two books and decided they were not worth my time.
2. Shadowlands trilogy by Kate Brian
I read Shadowlands, and loved it until the very end. And then I was mad. lol.
3. Broken Hearts & Revenge trilogy by Katie Finn
I pretty much hated Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend, much to my dismay.
4. Hundred Oaks series by Miranda Kenneally
Stealing Parker was just not good in my mind. I did not like Parker, among other things.
5. Wither trilogy by Lauren DeStefano (I read Wither)
I read Wither back before I was a blogger, but I remember being very depressed by the entire story and not wanting to continue.
6. Hush, Hush trilogy by Becca Fitzpatrick
Hush, Hush was kind of a train wreck for me. Again, I read this book before I became a blogger, so I have no record of my thoughts. I do know I don’t like fallen angel books, though.
7. Black City trilogy by Elizabeth Richards
Black City might just be the book I hate more than any other book. It was gory, dark, and contained graphic violence/murder against a cat. I boycott authors who do this. I can still cry about this scene. It was just. Not. Necessary.
9. Flirting in Italian trilogy by Lauren Henderson (I read Flirting in Italian)
Flirting in Italian was one of my biggest disappointments ever.
10. Wings series by Aprilynne Pike
I actually really like this series. It’s just been too long since I read the first three books that I don’t remember enough to read the last book. I’m pretty ok with this.
11. The Partials Sequence by Dan Wells
I liked Partials a lot, but heard that violence against a cat happens in the next book… So NOPE. Animal violence is just not ok, and nobody will ever convince me otherwise. Just nope.
Ok, lay it on me. I know I’m going to get some grief on a few of these. Feel free to try and convince me to change my mind!
