Top Ten Tuesday – Finished Series That I Have Yet To Finish

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday they post a new Top Ten list prompt. This week’s list is Top Ten Finished Series I Have YET to Finish. There are a some ongoing series that I’m not caught up with, but this list is those series that are written, I just haven’t finished reading them! Let me know if you see one I should really go back and finish, or leave a link to your own post in the comments.

These are in no particular order…..

10. All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness
A Discovery of Witches (All Souls Trilogy, #1)
I loved A Discovery of Witches so I’m not sure what happened here! I will get to this one eventually.

9. Sookie Stackhouse by Charlaine Harris
Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse, #1)
I liked the Aurora Teagarden series by Charlaine Harris a lot so I had high hopes, but I just didn’t care for Sookie. One book was enough for me.

8. The Grisha series by Leigh Bardugo
Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)
I’ve read Shadow and Bone, and I”m just starting on book #2, so I expect I’ll finish this one soon.

7. Hercule Poirot by Agatha Christie
Murder on the Orient Express (A Hercule Poirot Mystery)
I have read LOTS of them, but not all. Finishing all of Agatha Christie’s books is on my lifetime bucket list however, so I do hope to finish these! That covers the Miss Marple novels too….

6. Miss Marple series by Agatha Christie
A Caribbean Mystery (Miss Marple, #10)
See Hercule Poirot! 🙂

5. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)
I have every intention of finishing this one – I just have to read Fairest and Winter

4. Nero Wolfe series by Rex Stout
Black Orchids (Nero Wolfe, #9)
I love Archie Goodwin! I will get to all of these eventually….

3. The Divergent series by Veronica Roth
Divergent (Divergent, #1)
I liked Divergent, but couldn’t finish Insurgent – the bickering between Four and Tris started to annoy me too much for me to care what happened after a while. I may just (*gasp!*) watch the movies instead of reading the rest of this series.

2. Chronicles of Brother Cadfael by Ellis Peters
A Morbid Taste for Bones (Chronicles of Brother Cadfael, #1)
I’ve read 4 or 5 of the 20 books in this series, so I have a long way to go…

1. The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)
I read City of Bones and I liked it, but wasn’t really interested in reading the rest of the series for some reason.

  1. I loved the All Souls trilogy! I definitely recommend finishing these! Not Sookie Stackhouse, though. I read them all, when really, I should have stopped once I stopped enjoying them, which was pretty early on. I kept waiting for the series to get better again, but it just never did!

  2. The All Souls trilogy and the Grisha trilogy are two that I’ve been meaning to get around to for a while; they both sound really good. And I feel the same way as you about Divergent. Actually, while I was reading Insurgent, I felt like it might actual be a more successful story in movie form rather than as a book (but I still have yet to watch the movie, so I’m not sure!). Great list! 🙂

      1. Insurgent the movie was so different from Insurgent the book, it was ridiculous. Divergent was probably my favorite book out of the series, the other two just kind of went down hill for me from there. Initially after reading them, I rated them fairly high. The more time that passes the more meh I feel about the last two books

  3. I’ve yet to read the Lunar books! They sound amazing and since I am such a bit fairytale fan, I hope to enjoy them. Hope you like the rest, Erika. Thanks so much for visiting Dreaming Under the Same Moon. 🙂

  4. I had the same thought after reading divergent. I don’t see myself reading the rest of the series but I may watch the movies. I did love the city of bones series though…read the whole series!

  5. I wouldn’t know where to start with my list of ten. I received a new one today
    1-Riddle by Elizabeth Horton-Newton ( From Knoxville according to the return post)
    2-Stone Cold Case by Catherine Dilts
    3-Refining Fire by Tracie Peterson (Have read several of hers and all good)
    4-The Making of a Navy Seal by Brandon Webb
    5- Many, many Loveinspired Suspese which are quick to read and will usually get read first for that reason.

  6. I realized I don’t think I finished the Sookie Stackhouse series, but it got ridiculous somewhere in the middle for me, which same goes for the series. I have the first All Souls book and haven’t started it and it’s driving me crazy!

  7. Reading your list made me realize I have more of these than I thought. Some I just lost interest in. Some like you said with Divergent/Insurgent, the interactions of the characters start to annoy me. Some, like the Sword of Truth series, I got tired of the author getting preachy about pet subjects. He got to the point where I would tell the book to get back to the story of the characters involved. Hehehe.

    I’d like to work on some of the ones you mentioned myself. like the Cadfael books and the Nero Wolfe ones.

  8. My girlfriend is adoring Shadow and Bones. She went 2 pages into it and already wanted to read the next two volumes. I suppose it’s a hint for you to complete that series as well ! 😀

  9. I really enjoyed the Sookie Stackhouse series for the most part. Towards the end it got a little ridiculous and I HATED the ending but oh well. I really can’t wait to finish the All Souls trilogy. I have a feeling I will be starting those as soon as I finish the Throne of Glass series (of which I am in the middle of #3 and have #4 waiting at home) and The Grisha Trilogy (of which I need to read #3).
