Ten Series That I Have Quit!


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are the Top Ten bookish things we want to quit, or have quit. We could be creative with this list, but all of my creativeness has seem to have disappeared! I thought I’d look at ten series that I have given up on. Me being me, I’m quite happy to be persuaded to continue if it’s really a book series you love…so let me know!

As ever, click on the book image to get to Goodreads!

Matched- Ally Condie

Matched (Matched, #1)

I started the second book in the trilogy, but I just couldn’t get on with it. I found it unoriginal and not very exciting to read.

Eve- Anna Carey

Eve (Eve, #1)

I thought this book was okay, but I’m not excited enough about it to continue reading.

The Pledge- Kimberly Derting

The Pledge (The Pledge, #1)

Again, another series I could take or leave, so I decided to leave…

Vampire Academy- Richelle Mead

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1)

I’m sorry! I know this series is really popular but it just didn’t do it for me. I don’t think I could commit to the rest of the series when I found the first book a bit dull.

Across The Universe- Beth Revis

Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1)

I thought this series was going to be my kinda thing, but it wasn’t. It was okay, I’m just not inspired to continue.

The Darkest Minds- Alexandra Bracken

The Darkest Minds (The Darkest Minds, #1)

I really wanted to like this series too, but I didn’t connect with the characters at all.

The Selection- Kiera Cass

The Selection (The Selection, #1)

I was happy with it finishing with The One, I just have no interest in the rest of the books!

The 5th Wave- Rick Yancey

The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave, #1)

The 5th Wave took me ages to get into and then hasn’t really stayed with me, so I’ve decided not to continue!

Partials- Dan Wells

Partials (The Partials Sequence, #1)

I remember liking Partials but it’s been so long since I’ve read it that I’ve lost interest in the books!

Rebel Belle- Rachel Hawkins

Rebel Belle (Rebel Belle, #1)

I enjoyed Rebel Belle but I’m not really interested in the next book, especially after very mixed reviews!

Do you think I should continue with any of these series? Which bookish things have you quit? Feel free to leave me your Top Ten lists and I’ll stop by!

  1. The only one I’ve read is The Selection. I read the first three books, but I can’t say I recommend that you finish. It kind of went downhill for me because it took too long for anything to happen. I’m considering trying the Vampire Academy at some point though.

  2. Many of these books I’ve also stopped at the first book. The intentions were there to carry on, but a lot of them end up becoming kind of forgettable and I forget to pick up the next in the series! Matched was one I couldn’t even bring myself to consider the final book. Which is a shame, because I hate to leave a series unfinished.

  3. Great list! I’m sad to hear you didn’t enjoy the 5th wave. I had a hard time getting into it at first, too! I agree with you about Matched, this book didn’t really stay with me, so I simply prefered not keeping up with it! 🙂
    You can check out my TTT if you have time 🙂

  4. Oh no! Not ‘Across the Universe’! I loved that series, gutted you didn’t like it. I currently have Matched and The 5th Wave on my bookshelf, I’ve had them both for a while but still haven’t read them. I kind of want to read The 5th Wave before the film comes out, really hoping that I enjoy it. I think The Selection has been on my TBR list for a while, but I’ve never actually made the effort to buy it. Sucks about these books that you didn’t like, hopefully you will have some happier reading in future.

  5. I haven’t read any of these books! I have The Darkest Minds, but I haven’t started reading it yet. I also have The 5th Wave. I think that I will at least read that one before the movie comes out. And, I have no desire to read The Selection at all. Great list!

  6. I loved Vampire Academy, but I can totally understand you quitting the series if the first book didn’t really pull you in. I have The 5th Wave and plan to read it before the movie comes out. I hope I can get into it. At least I know now that it may take a while to really get into the story. I hope you find some better books to read and stick with! Thankss for visiting Bookworm Book Reviews!

  7. Still curious about Ally’s books, and I’m sure to finish Kiera’s books (soon!) as they’re kind of my guilty pleasure reads. 😉 I’m not too hyped about reading the ‘Rebel Belle’ sequel as wasn’t wowed by the first book. Fun list!

  8. Oh I haven’t read any of these (and I guess that’s a good thing). I’ve heard that Matched isn’t very good, so I can understand why you would want to stop reading it. I do want to get to the Darkest Minds one day though!
