Isn’t it so annoying when you pick up a book in a series you loved a year ago and the next one has just come out but you have no idea who anyone is? Who’s this love interest? when did they get together? Why can this girl throw fire all of a sudden and did that guy really die?! Don’t even get me started on those random characters you seemed to have added. Like I thought Jace Wayland was a Demigod at camp half blood throughout most of The Last Olympian.
My point is read the next one in the series asap. This avoids all confusion and muddle. And, because I’m full of great advice and bad decisions, here’s ten series (what’s the plural for that? serieses? serys? seriesss?) that I am currently failing to read and have no idea who anyone is anymore! This is a Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl.
1. Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan
Fairly sure this series is now finished and I’m like one book in? Yeah it’s pretty pathetic.
2. A Gathering of Shadows by VE Schwab
In my defence this book is really large and has really small print and will take dedication and a half decent attention span to finish. The fact that I just went and toasted some crumpets in the middle of that sentence does not bode well.
3. Hero at the Fall by Alwyn Hamilton
This ones not my fault, I don’t own the book yet. I mean that is largely my fault since I haven’t gone to the book shop to actually buy the book, but still. Not my fault.
4. Gilded Cage by Vic James
In my defence I only just read the first one of these! But that does not mean I won’t put of reading the second one for eternity.
5. Fractured by Teri Terry
I don’t even have any excuses for this one. It’s literally sitting on my shelf, I feel judged.
6. Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
Not technically in the same series (I don’t think so anyway??) but I loved Code Named Verity and would love to dive into her amazing writing again. Just another book on the this never ending stack known, fearfully, as my tbr.
7. Allegiant by Veronica Roth
I wouldn’t say so much that I haven’t got back to this one more that I’m avoiding it. It’s just I’ve heard things! I don’t know if I can take reading it! Not that I remember who the characters were anymore… was some called three?
8. The Raven Boys by Maggie Steivfater
Ok, big fail, I only got up to book three. This summer I’m going to grovel at my lovely friend Jo and beg for the fourth one so I can see if they actually found that king feller before they all get more OP. Seriously, was it just me who thought everyone seemed to level up each book?!
9. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
I somewhat recently read the first one (and you should be impressed by that- the thing was brick!) but I haven’t started it’s equally brick-shaped sequal yet.
10. The Burning Maze by Rick Riordan
Not rushing to pick this up after the last one, tbh, but in the theme of ongoing series, here’s one I should try and finish. I do kind of like Apollo.
Wow that list was far too easy to write. Have you read any of these series? Am I in for a treat? If you’ve done this Top Ten Tuesday feel free to link your list and I’ll check it out! And for the love of anything if you know the plural for series please do say.
