Series I Really Need to Finish (Like, seriously)

The problem with reading a book series: actually finishing the series.

There are so many reasons why I haven't been able to finish all the series that I've started, many out of my control (or that's what I tell myself so I don't feel guilty shhh shhh shhh just go with it.) Sometimes I didn't have the money to buy all the books together, but more often than not it's that I started a series when only the first book was released and didn't work too hard at keeping up when the next books were published. So I fell behind. And it kept happening, because I kept starting new series.

Totally relatable, right? Please tell me I'm not the only one.

The other day I took the time to add a goodreads shelf and tag all the series I have to finish. I figured I'd make a post about it so you guys could tell me which series I really need to get my butt in gear over and just finish already.

(NOTE: Clicking the covers of the books will take you Amazon, where you can purchase the books in whatever format your beautiful little heart desires. You deserve only the best.)

• The Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi • 
(Yes I know the first cover doesn't match but that's the cover of the copy that I own and I personally like it better than the weird seasonally decorated eyeballs. So we're all just going to have to quiet that little voice in our heads that demands uniformity. Quiet down, little voice. Quiet down.)

There's absolutely no reason why I haven't finished this trilogy yet except pure laziness. I mean, it's a trilogy. In terms of series, trilogies are pretty easy to get through. I was lucky enough to get an ARC for Shatter Me before it came out and I totally devoured that book all at once–you can read my review of Shatter Me right here. I loved it. I even got one of my good friends to read it after I gifted her a copy for Christmas, and she finished the series before I did! She tells me it's amazing and that she knows I'll be happy with the ending. Perhaps I'll visit the book store and pick up Unravel Me next.

• The Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent •
I read all the way up to the 4th book, My Soul to Steal, and then once I finished it, I was stuck. I haven't finished this series because I actually refuse to. For some reason, this book series makes me really anxious and reading it is literally emotionally exhausting. Not to mention, I know what's going to happen next and I'm not sure if I'm actually ready to read it. I will, at some point. I really want to know how everything will resolve. And it has my bae 5ever, Tod. I love that boy like dog loves bacon. 

• The Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout •
(Can we take 2 seconds out of our lives to talk about the Origin cover? That ab definition. Mm.)

The Lux series is one I haven't finished out of pure laziness. Gosh, I'm such a bum. I love this series so much! Enough that I've purchased multiple copies of Obsidian and handed them out to friends, basically forcing them to read it. They had no choice. This friendship is not a democracy, it's a dictatorship. Now read your YA sci-fi romance!

Ahem, anyway. I've read up to the 3rd book, Opal. Lately my completely legitimate excuse is that I can't afford to buy new books so I've been relying on the good ol' New York Public Library to feed my need of books. The branch closest to me never seems to have Origin on the shelves, which is strange and annoying. I'm still checking though!

• The Steampunk Chronicles series by Kady Cross •

Ugh these covers give me life. Look at them, such pretty girls in awesome steampunk attire. This is my aesthetic. 

The Steampunk Chronicles is one of my favorite steampunk series of all time! I've read the first and second books, along with a short story that's not shown here that's a prequel to the series, and I'm completely obsessed with the world and characters that Kady Cross has created. Again, just a matter of laziness and, now, a budget that doesn't support the purchasing of books. I will finish it though, because my heart is thoroughly invested in one Jack Dandy. 

• The Widdershins Adventures series by Ari Marmell •
The Widdershins series is the high fantasy YA series that  I think needs to just blow up and become super popular. Knowing how hard that is and the way the book community is so easily distracted by the next shiny thing to pop up in Harper Teen's upcoming catalogue, I doubt it'll happen, but I'll do my part to share my love of this series. Which is why I confuse even myself when I realized that I haven't finished it. I've read the first and second books, both of which were sent to me for review, and love love loved them. Just thinking about how much I loved them is sort of convincing me to get off my lazy butt and find a copy of of Lost Covenant to start reading. Believe it or not, I'm pretty sure I saw it at my library the last time I went. 

These are just a few series I picked off my TBR shelf to showcase and talk about. Which series should I jump on right now? Please, give me a kick in the butt in the comments!

If you haven't read any of these books, you should totally click on them and give them a try! These may be series that I haven't finished, but they're series that I want to finish, and that's because they're great!

  3. I feel almost the exact same way about the Soul Screamers series. The 4th book made me even more anxious than the others, the whole triangle thing in that one drove me nuts. I still want to finish it though. Really hope it gets a little less......stressful lol

  4. I love to read an entire series all at once without stopping. I just don't have the patience for the one for today one for next YEAR sort of thing; it drives me nuts. I love when I come across a completed series but sometimes you see a new book that's just soooooooo interesting and I can't help myself. You should try Rachel Aaron's Heartstrikers series. It only has 2 books so far but I love it. (maybe after you clear some of your to be read shelf first :)

  7. Theo chia sẻ của những bạn du học sinh đang đi du học Nhật Bản thi làm nhân viên chạy bàn là cơ hội rất tốt để các bạn cải thiện trình độ nghe nói tiếng Nhật của mình. Bởi đặc thù công việc đòi hỏi phải giao tiếp nhiều với khách hàng, ghi nhớ nhiều món ăn có trong thực đơn nhà hàng.
    Công việc làm thêm khi đi du học Nhật Bản vừa học vừa làm có rất nhiều. Điều quan trọng các bạn cần phải biết phân bổ thời gian hợp lý giữa việc học và việc đi làm. Tiếp đó là chi tiêu có kế hoạch. Được như vậy chắc chắn các bạn sẽ có đủ tiền trang trải chi phí sinh hoạt cũng như học phí của mình mà không cần người nhà bên Việt Nam hỗ trợ.

    Việc xin visa du học nhật bản trong những năm gần đây đã thay đổi rất nhiều, tạo điều kiện thuận lợi hơn cho các bạn trẻ có ước mơ chinh phục đỉnh cao tri thức tại đất nước này.

In a word, the Hermes Handbags are fabricated for females who honey spending their money on handbags.These canicule a well-dressed woman seems abridged after a Christian Dior.The movement was initiated in the United States, there are about five, where subsidiaries of watch brands have developed e-shops. The Americans soon became familiar with the Swiss Watches Web. A question of culture, but also and above all a Omega Watches matter of size of the territory.

It would be tempting to look at these Replica Rolex side-by-side.these two watches prove one of the most important principles of collecting vintage Replica Breitling.The case on the Sometimes Replica IWC does something weird, and that’s when you really need to pay attention.Rolex Air King is much more lithe than the sturdy beveled design found on such vintage sport watches as the Submariner and GMT.Sometimes Replica Omega does something weird, and that’s when you really need to pay attention.The appulse on the Replica Hermes Handbag capacity of high-end appearance brands isn’t absolutely clear.But some analysts are admiration a stronger approaching for high-end appearance brands of Replica Prada Handbag architecture affluence watch divisions.
