Hi everyone — it’s Allison
Top Ten Series I Shamefully Haven’t Finished Yet
1) The Tea Rose series by Jennifer Donnelly
Why? I think I’m honestly afraid for this series to end so I’ve been putting off reading the final installment The Wild Rose. I just have so much love for the characters, the settings, the plots, the writing. I love it all!
2) The Anne Of Green Gables series by L.M. Montgomery
Why? I read the first one at the insistence of April back when we were in college together when she found out that I’d never read them but I have never been able to read the others in the series. I actually got the whole series in a box set for Christmas a couple years ago so I really do need to get onto reading them.
3) The Chronicles of Narnia series by C.S. Lewis
Why? I honestly have no idea. I read the first one when I was younger but never continued with the series. Again, this is also a series that I actually have a box set of so I should really get on that and read them.
4) The Giver Series by Lois Lowry
Why? I have always loved The Giver but I never realized it was a series until just this past year. I’m serious. I have no idea how that slipped past me but after having the opportunity to listen to Lois Lowry speak at the BEA Children’s Author Breakfast (she’s amazing), I found that I really need to get my hands on all the books in the series in read them.
5) The Sevenwaters Series by Juliet Marillier
Why? I’ve only read the first book in the series Daughter of the Forest but, I really want to read the others. Juliet Marillier is such an amazing fantasy author. She makes me get lost in her worlds, and with her characters, and I love it!
6) The Gemma Doyle Trilogy by Libba Bray
Why? When I finished the first book in the series, A Great and Terrible Beauty, I didn’t have access to the other books. And now even though I have all three books in the series (and their autographed too!), I still haven’t sat down to read them. I really need to fix this because I really enjoyed reading A Great and Terrible Beauty, and I love Libba Bray!
7) The Redwall Series by Brian Jacques
Why? I’m really surprised by this one honestly because The Redwall Series is one of April’s favorite series of books, and I’m a little surprised that she never “forced” me to read all of them. Admittedly, she was the reason why I started reading them at first but, I guess somewhere along the way I lost track of them, and never finished the series. I would like to be able to go back to it someday.
8) The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings series by J.R.R. Tolkien
Why? I did try to start the Fellowship of the Ring when I was younger but for some reason I couldn’t get into it at the time. I always wanted to go back and try it again though. Maybe I will not that I’m older and have a higher attention span, I will give the whole series another shot.
9) The Fearless series by Francine Pascal
Why? I remember enjoying this series when I was younger but I never really finished it. I think it was because my library didn’t have all the books, or maybe I just moved onto something different. I think I would still like to go back and finish it some day.
10) The De Piaget Family series & Macleod Family series by Lynn Kurland
Why? Well, in truth these two highly interconnected series are not actually finished yet. It seems that just when you think it is finished another family member gets their own story, and their own romance, and it all begins again. I love that about them but at the same time it makes it hard to finish especially when there are “older” books in the two series that I haven’t had a chance to read yet! But still…I love the series, and the families, and the characters, and the romance, and the settings, and the time travel, and all that it involves so I imagine that I will still be reading these books for a while to come.
So, that is my unfinished series list of “shame”.
What is on your list?
