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 topic is supposed to be Places in Books I’d Love to Live, but I’m not very imaginative and honestly love living in the Pacific Northwest. Instead you’re getting:
Ten Book Series I Walked Away From**
**This isn’t a topic I thought of myself. I borrowed the idea from Annemieke of A Dance With Books. She posted this topic last week and I loved the idea of it. If you would like to read her original post from last week with this topic, you can find it here.
1. Vino & Veritas – World of True North
I didn’t walk away because this series was bad. I actually adored three out of the eight books I read in it. The rest were good, too. I just don’t know think I’m going to read more unless I already know and love the author(s). Too many books, too little time and all that.
2. Busy Bean – World of True North
It’s pretty much the same for this series. I enjoyed the two books I read, but there’s going to be a ton of them. Unless I’m called to a book by the author or the blurb, I’m going to skip them. I am going to focus on the Moo U series from this world instead.
3. Silver Springs – Brenda Novak
I used to read all of Novak’s books. I especially loved her Whiskey Creek series. I wanted to dive back into her books, so I tried A California Christmas. I think I might have outgrown her books or just like to read a different style of writing now because I had a hard time with that book. I don’t think I’ll be reading more of the series.
4. Frisky Business – Kendall Ryan
I was on a Kendall Ryan binge last year. I read the first book in the Frisky Business series and it was cute. It just wasn’t what I was expecting, though. And for some reason it kind of put me off Ryan’s books…at least for now.
5. The Club – Lauren Rowe
This one might not be forever. I read the first book because it was free and I had read and loved many of her current related books. Problem is I read the next related series and it kind of spoiled this one for me. I still might go back and read it, but not for now.
6. Donner Bakery – Smarty Pants Romance
I read three books in this series. Only two worked for me — both by Karla Sorensen. Since her books became a spin-off series of their own, I probably won’t go back to this series.
7. Only One – Natasha Madison
I was really into a couple of Madison’s series, but they seem to have gone downhill for me. Some of the books work and some don’t. Unless I see someone that I trust raving about a book in this series, I won’t continue it.
8. Lost Boys – Emma Scott
I love me some Emma Scott books, but the angst level in the first Lost Boys series got me bad. I don’t think I can continue the series unless I know it’s not going to be as angsty.
9. The Brown Sisters – Talia Hibbert
I say this now, but it will probably change. I liked the first book, but didn’t love it enough to continue. That said, every time I see someone raving about the next two books in the series I’m tempted to try them again. So this might just be another for now. Maybe if I can get them on audio form my library…
10. Brayshaw – Meagan Brandy
I read the first three books in this series because I thought it had a similar vibe to Fallen Crest High by Tijan. It did and it didn’t. By the third book, I was like WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE??? and THAT’S FREAKING CRAZY! I saw reviews that were not so good for book four, so I decided I was definitely DONE.
