Top Ten Tuesday: Series I’ve Given Up On/Don’t Plan to Finish

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s is Series I’ve Given Up On/Don’t Plan to Finish. 

1. Gansett Island by Marie Force

I gave up on this series because it has gone on and on and on forever. The books stopped feeling like new stories and more like catch ups with old characters.

2. The Sullivans by Bella Andre

I loved the San Francisco and the Seattle Sullivans, but I think I’ve outgrown the Sullivan series since then. I’m just not into the stories as much as I used to be.

3. In Death by J.D. Robb

I read over 20 of these books and then they just kind of lost my attention. There have been so many more since I stopped reading them that I decided I won’t try to catch up.

4. Boy Toy Chronicles by Jay McLean

I love Jay McLean, but after reading the first book in this series I know it’s not for me.

5. Palm South University by Kandi Steiner

The drama was just too much.

6. Carter Reed by Tijan

I love a good Tijan series, but Carter Reed wasn’t for me. Too much angsty gangster stuff for my liking I guess.

7. The Bourbon Street Boys by Elle Casey

I liked most of these books, but I just think I’m over the series.

8. Fifty Shades as Told by Christian by E.L. James

Um, yeah. I don’t need to re-read Fifty Shades from his POV. Grey didn’t really have anything new to offer but a cold personality.

9. Bachelors of Arizona by Rachel Van Dyken

I love RVD, but this series is not for me. I really didn’t enjoy the first two books, so I’m skipping the last.

10. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

I read the first two books. I don’t think I’ll read the rest.

  1. Lovely list! I also read the first two books in the Red Queen series and I think I’ll stop there, too, I just wasn’t a fan of the second book :/

    1. Thank you! I don’t blame you. I think it was like Allegiant — only the end was worth reading.

    1. Thank you! I think Glass Sword made a lot of reader abandon the series unfortunately.

  2. Totally agree about Red Queen! I read the second book hoping I would like it more than the first and get into the series more, but nope! It was way worse. I’m seeing Red Queen on so many lists today, it’s kind of funny! It has such good reviews on Goodreads!

    1. The first book is good. It might be worth reading. Maybe the series would work for you. I have known people who love it. It just wasn’t my thing in the long run.

  3. I’ve given up on the Red Queen series too. I loved the first book so much, but the sequel was just so bad. I attempted the third book, but just couldn’t bring myself to get that far into it.

    1. It was so bad. I agree. I didn’t even attempt the third, so you did better than me!

        1. Looking back, it’s hard to remember why I liked it so much. Maybe the emotions.

  4. I can imagine not picking up the rest of the In Death books. There are over 40 now! I only read 4 so I am still filled with all the good intentions haha.

    1. I think I just moved on from them after I had my daughter. I think I was just in the mood for happier stuff and then it was hard to get back.
