Welcome to Bookish Blatherings, a Bad Bird Reads feature where I ramble about bookish or bloggerish things and hopefully you will join in on the discussion.
For some reason I seriously procrastinate on some series. I love them but I just don’t continue them for one reason or another. I have more than this list, but I’m going to share my top 5 series I’ve been thinking about lately. I really need to get my ass in gear and start reading them again.
5. The Remnant Chronicles
I loved the first book, The Kiss of Deception, but I have yet to read the rest of the series. I keep saying I’m going to buy The Heart of Betrayal, book 2, but nope. The way the first book ended, I am dying to see what happens next.
4. Outlander Series
I am obsessed with Outlander. I read the book first and I also watch the TV show. It’s the best historical romance I have ever read. For some reason I have not committed to the next book, Dragonfly in Amber, or the rest of the series for that matter. I guess I am afraid that I loved the first book so much that the second can’t possibly be as good. I do own the book though. 🙂
3. The Lunar Chronicles
Here’s the thing, Cinder was just okay for me. I was not blown away by it, but I have always wanted to see what the whole series has to offer because sooooo many people love it. I actually own Scarlet, the second book in the series, and plan to read it one day. I just don’t know when that day will be.
2. Mercy Thompson Series
This is one of my first series I read when I first started blogging. Moon Called was one of my first urban fantasy books as well. Obviously, I fell in love right away. But for some reason I stopped at book 6, River Marked. Well, to be honest, that book fell short for me. But I know this series picks right back up with book 7, Frost Burned. Now just have to buy it.
1. The Hollows
No doubt this is one of my favorite series of all time. I started The Hollows series when I started the Mercy Thompson series. My procrastination for this one is different. I don’t want to finish this one because I don’t want it to all end. Dead Witch Walking was so amazing and the rest of the series followed suit. I have read the first chapter of The Undead Pool, book 12, but stopped because I’m still sad that it’s all over. So I have two more books to finish this series and who knows when I will get to them.
What series are you procrastinating on? Why did you stop reading that series and will you get back to it one day?
