Top Ten Tuesday: Shamefully Incomplete

I hope you’re all having a fabulous start to the week! I’m just surprised at how cold it still is. Spring is apparently undecided about whether it’s coming or going. We’re getting the odd “warm” day and then RAINTHUNDERLIGHTNINGWIND.


I’m excited to make this list today because I definitely need to remind myself ALL THE TIME about my inability to commit to series. It’s not that I don’t care about finishing them, I just have a very short attention span and like to jump from world to world as if I were playing hop-scotch.

This week’s theme is:

 Top Ten Series I Haven’t Finish Yet

Which is not the actual them of the week. We were supposed to talk about audio books but I’m not a die-hard audio fan. Don’t get me wrong, they can be great . . . I’m just more of a read-with-the-eyes sort of person. In short, I don’t have any audio books to recommend you except HARRY POTTER – because if you haven’t listened to that one then what are you doing with your life?

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over @ The Broke and the Bookish and each week there’s a different theme that we get to make a list about featuring ten related books. It’s so much fun and the topics are always great! It’s also a fabulous way to learn more about people’s reading adventures and I recommend heading over to the official page to do some exploring through the link up.


The A Song of Ice and Fire Series
by George R. R. Martin

I was a late comer to this game and it’s not exactly the type of series that you can speed read through. I’ve read the first book so far and am planning on taking down the second one next month so I AM going to get there! And who knows, I might even catch up at the rate that Martin is writing the next book.



The Die For Me Series
by Amy Plum

I surprise myself every time I think about the fact that I haven’t finished this series. I enjoyed the first two books IMMENSELY and bought the third one with great enthusiasm.  I was absolutely desperate to know how things were going to wrap up. But did I actually read it? NOPE. Why? I honestly have no idea – but I will! Soon!



The Watersong Quartet Series
by Amanda Hocking

I’m quite a fan of Hocking’s Tryll Trilogy and I’ve read the first couple of books for her Watersong series. I’ve enjoyed it so far and I love how easy her books are to read. But despite buying the rest of the series I’ve not actually finished it yet. I feel like I am falling so far behind with all the books that Hocking has written that I’m not going to be able to catch up soon!



 The Study Series
by Maria V. Snyder

If I had a good reason for why this hasn’t been read yet, then I could explain why this is still incomplete. I LOVED the first book – I believe I may have even put it on my all time favourites list. However, I just have not got around to finishing the silly thing since buying the first few books in the series. This really does need to change.



The Selection Series
by Kiera Cass

To be fair, I was a little late to this party, too. However, these books are a couple of hour’s worth of reading – they’re so light and fluffy and QUICK. And I’ve really been enjoying them. So far I’ve read the first two books but I do own the next two. And I really just want to catch up (is the series finished now? is Cass writing more?!). Maxom is adorable.



The Inheritance Cycle Series
by Christopher Paolini 

I read Eragon a couple of years ago now, but I just did not continue with the series. Which is crazy. I think you’re all probably aware of my borderline extreme obsession with dragons? Well. Clearly there’s something wrong with me for not having just read this series in one fell swoop because GOOD GOD was the first book amazing.



The Septimus Heap Series
by Angie Sage

This is a series that I shame myself for not having read. At some point, maybe even this year, I’m going to sit myself down and marathon the entire series. Although I think I might be missing the last book. I read the first one yonks ago but despite being gifted the boxed set with pretty golden spines, I did not continue reading. I disgrace myself.



The Graceling Realm Series
by Kristin Cashore 

I finally own the last book to this series! If I’m being honest, the reason this has not been completed is because I was waiting to get my hands on a matching copy of Bitterblue for ages and it just wasn’t happening. Thankfully, my uncle and aunt got me the book for my birthday this year and it’s in the beautiful original cover! So it doesn’t match but I could not care less. I need to collect this series in both editions (and also finish reading it).



The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten Series
by Julie Kagawa 

I feel like you might be surprised about this one. If we’re being picky here, I have read the original series in its completion and loved it and died of feels. However, I have only read the first book in the spin-off series and clearly that’s not good enough. I think I have a subconscious fear of this series actually ending, so I’ve been avoiding it. This series is LIFE.



The Inkworld Series
by Cornelia Funke

And let’s crown this list by bringing up a series that I STILL. HAVE. NOT. READ. If you could properly get angry with yourself and shake your fist and whack yourself over the head, that is what I’d be doing. And this is going to get read this year. WATCH ME. I have exactly zero reasons as to why I stopped reading this but I shall have words with my 15 year old self and dive right back into Inkspell. I’m sure I will get around to this soon.


 Another Tuesday done! What’s a series you’ve STILL not finished?

  1. Haha, at the rate you’ll be reading A Song of Ice and Fire, I have no doubt you’d still probably catch up before the last book finally comes out. Tbh, I thought the second and third books were the best of the four I’d read.

    And yes, I’m also really bad at series. Ive read books one of the Throne of Glass series, the Grisha, and the Daughter of Smoke and one and LOVED them but I have yet to pick up the rest of the sequels. I have no excuses!

  2. Great list! Though it reminds me that I still have thousands upon thousands of books to read. I literally have not read one of these series above, and that is an issue lol. So, will add these all to my TBR pile and hope that I can get around to them soon 🙂

  3. I am an audiobook lover and I have NOT listened to HP via audiobook… the shame! It’s on my to-do list ok?

    I am more of a standalone kind of girl, but I do have a few I need to read the next installment…

    The Outlander series – I think I need to read book #8?

    The Bill Hodges Trilogy by Stephen King – I attending his book tour for the final book in the series and have YET to read it.

    GoT – I haven’t actually read the first book, but it’s is sitting on my shelf… that’s the first step right?

    Shades of Magic series by V.E. Schwab – I need to read A Gather of Shadows like YESTERDAY

    1. Excuse me whilst I GASP. Listen to HP – I can promise you it’ll be the best experience of your life 😱😂 ooh, I do love me a good standalone, but I also love having more time and adventures with the characters.

      I really need to start the Outlander series! Maybe once I’ve finished all of these? And I need to read a Schwab book!!
