Series I will (probably) not continue!

Previously I talked about books I’m waiting for the sequel to continue and series I should continue. So I thought let’s also talk about series I (probably) won’t continue! I will try to explain why haha. And if I have reviews they are linked!

  • Heart of thorns – Bree Barton. I got this book in a Fairyloot box, I don’t think I would have picked it up on my own. It was an okay read, but I have no desire to know what happens next.
  • State of Sorrow – Melinda Salisbury. Another fairyloot book I would not have picked up on my own, and again don’t really care what happens next.
  • Grace and Fury – Tracy Banghart. Again Fairyloot book (is this a theme!?), this book did interest me and I might have read it even if I did not get it. But I was just a bit bored while reading this!
  • And I darken – Kiersten White. I really did try, I read two books, but I just don’t think Kiersten White is for me.
  • Furyborn – Claire LeGrand. I actually think I gave this quite an okay review, I just don’t feel the need at all to continue.
  • Defy the stars – Claudia Grey. This book had too much romance and not enough sci-fi for me.
  • Howl’s moving castle – Diana Wynne Jones. I liked the first book, but don’t really have the desire to continue.
  • The storm runner – JC Cervantes. This was a good book, but I don’t think it needs a sequel?! Also I felt like the story was kinda over.
  • Reawakened – Colleen Houck. I was pleasantly surprised by book one, but couldn’t care less in book two.
  • Of fire and stars – Audrey Coulthurst. I can see why people like this one, but I just didn’t.
  • Mirage – Somaiya Daud. I just didn’t enjoy this and thought it was boring.  
  • The thief – Megan Whalen Turner. I actually read 5 books in this series, and I don’t think I would have gotten this far if it wasn’t for the readalong I participated in. I know there is only one more book coming, but I just don’t really care.
  • The royals – Erin watt. I read two book in this series, the first one I actually kinda enjoyed, but the second one really made me angry.
  • Shatter me – Tahereh Mafi. I read book one so long ago, and I cannot remember anything about it. I just remember that it did not really make an impression on me.
  • Red Rising – Pierce Brown. This is probably an unpopular opinion, but I really did not like this one..

This is it for now. There might be more, but I don’t remember them at this moment!

What is a series you’re not planning to continue?

  1. I read “And I Darken” last year and it was okay, but I wasn’t inspired to read anymore. I actually kind of was interested in reading more of the Shatter Me series, but my library doesn’t have all the books and I’m not interested enough to buy them, so I probably won’t continue that, either.

    1. Good to hear! Ooh that is actually quite sad 🙁 hopefully they have them later!

  2. I am torn on a few series I have started in the past, but I will also not be continuing the Shatter Me series. I read the first book and I was just kinda annoyed by it. The main character just rubbed me the wrong way. I did read and enjoyed A Very Large Expanse of Sea and loved it so for me it is not her writing style. I think I am also going to stop reading A Court of Thorns and Roses, but this one might change depending on how I feel. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Ooh I also did enjoy A very large expanse of sea!
      Personally I did enjoy the ACOTAR series, especially book 2! In case you need motivation to continue

  3. I feel the exact same way about “And I Darken” and “Furyborn”! I did enjoy the “Red Rising” series, which I do wish to continue, but I can totally see not being into it. It’s kind of much, at some points.

    1. That’s good to hear haha!
      Yeah I was totally lost while reading red rising haha, some books you just don’t connect with!
