6 Series I Won’t Finish

Series I won't finish

I was going through my unfinished series and I found some series tha I’m in the middle of and knew I wanted to finish and some that I wasn’t sure if I wanted to keep reading. I made a blog post about them a few days ago: Fantasy Series I’m in the Middle of: Should I Keep Reading Them?!

But there were 6 series, a mix between fantasy and dystopia, that I know I won’t finish. I read only the first book in these series, most of them 4 or 5 years ago, and  I’m not interested in them anymore. Here there are:

Legend Series by Marie Lu 

I read Legend 4 years ago and, through the years, I have considered multiple times if I should read the rest of the trilogy, because so many people say amazing things about Marie Lu’s writing. But, honestly, Legend was just ok for me, I found it predictable and I have no motivation to keep reading the series.

Red Queen Series by Victoria Aveyard 

I knew when I finished reading Red Queen, 2 years ago, that it was very unlikely that I would continue with this serie. It wasn’t bad, it’s just that there was nothing especial enough in this to make me want to keep reading. The world and the magic system were similar to others and I didn’t care about the characters enough to read just to know what happened to them.

The Orphan Queen Series by Jodi Meadows 

Most of the time I forget I read The Orphan Queen (3 years ago). It wasn’t bad but I remember almost nothing about it except that something weird (not bad!) happened with a creature of some sort. I considered finishing this because it is a duology, so I have only 1 book left, but honestly I have other things that I would rather read.

The Remnant Chronicles Series by Mary E. Pearson 

I didn’t love The Kiss of Deception, when I read it 4 years ago, and I know it was my own fault, because I got confused and frustrated by it (I don’t really know why). I still thought it was good and since a new book is coming out, everyone is talking about this series and how great it is, so I was considering reading the next book in the series, but again, I have other books that I want to read more.

Mara Dyer Series by Michelle Hodkin

I LOVED The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, I gave it 5 stars and I was excited to continue reading the series, but then I never did and it’s being 5 years, and now I don’t really want to. I don’t remember enough of the first book and I’m just not as interested.

Shatter Me Series by Tahereh Mafi 

Until very recently I was thinking about finishing this series, because the new book came out this year and everyone was talking about how amazing it is and I was kind of interested. But honestly, I didn’t like Shatter Me until the last few chapters when things got a bit more interesting, so I don’t have a good memory of the first book (which I read 5 years ago) and that makes it hard for me to feel inclined to read the other books in the series.

Did you read any of these series? Did you finish them? Is there one series on this list that you think I really should finish?

  1. Best decision you did was not continuing the RQ series. The original Shatter me series was great but Restore me destroyed everything in characters development and the characters felt strange. So you are not missing a lot.
    Legend series was good but If It wasn’t one of the first series I have ever read, I would have stopped because dystopians are pretty much extinct now!

      1. If you focus on the plot then it is a good one, but if you like the characters and their development, it is like the first trilogy never existed. I liked how naive the characters started in the first trilogy and developed well then this book comes and they are naive and stupid again.

  2. I literally just post a Booktube video on this exact topic and then saw this post while scrolling haha. Anyway, The Kiss of Deception I ended up DNFing, so I couldn’t even make it through the first book, I can’t imagine myself making it through the whole series!
    Shatter Me nearly made it on my list, thinking about it now I don’t know why I scrolled past it on Goodreads and didn’t write it down. I didn’t enjoy it and I HATE love triangles and I’ve also been spoiled for who she ends up with anyway, so what the heck is the point honestly haha.
