Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Bionic Bookworm! If you’re interested in participating, check out her wonderful blog to get the details and the prompts for each week!
This weeks prompt is series I need to finish, which is perfect for me because I am the worst at finishing series. I don’t know if it’s because I have a short attention span, or if it’s because I’m easily distracted by new books, but there are only a handful of series that I’ve actually completed. Below are five series that I really want to finish sometime soon, but if I’m completely honest, I’m not sure when I’ll get around to finishing them.
To All the Boys I Loved Before by Jenny Han: I really don’t know how I haven’t finished reading this series yet. Even though I devoured To All The Boys I Loved Before and P.S. I Still Love You, I still haven’t picked up Always and Forever, Lara Jean yet. I loved the characters in this book, and I’m certainly curious about what happens next for Lara Jean, so I’m hoping that I can find the time to pick up the third book in this trilogy before the end of the year.
Chief Inspector Armand Gamache Series by Louise Penny: This is by far the longest series on this list, so I’m not surprised that I haven’t finished it yet. The Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series is a Canadian mystery series that I started a few years ago and quickly fell in love with. The main character is by far one of my favourite fictional detectives, and there are so many other memorable characters in Three Pines. I find that I tend to read more mysteries in the winter, so maybe I’ll read a bit more about Inspector Gamache’s adventures once the snow starts to fall.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber: This is the one series on this list that I can tell you why I haven’t finished it yet. I read Caraval shortly after it was released, and even though I didn’t love it, I was curious enough and invested enough, to want to know what happened next. When Legendary came out, I didn’t have time to read it, so I decided that I would wait until Finale came out. Finale has been out for a few months now, so I’m starting to run out of excuses, but I think this series is definitely going to end up on my winter TBR.
The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory: Earlier this year, I read The Proposal, and I thought it was amazing. I loved that it felt like I was reading a rom-com, and it helped spark my new obsession with the romance genre. A few months later, I read The Wedding Date, and even though I didn’t enjoy it as much as The Proposal, I still want to read about Maddie and Theo in The Wedding Party. I also heard that Jasmine Guillory is releasing a fourth, Christmas themed book, which I’m super excited about.
Arc of a Scythe by Neal Schusterman: The ultimate question of 2019 is going to be “has Ashlee read Thunderhead yet?” I read Scythe at the beginning of the year, and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I liked the story, which is surprising because I’m usually not a huge fan of dystopian universes, and I loved the characters. If you’ve been following my blog or Bookstagram, you may have noticed that Thunderhead keeps on appearing on my monthly TBR lists, but I still haven’t picked it up. Ideally, I’d like to read it before The Toll comes out, but at this point, who knows what’ll happen.
How about you? Are you also terrible at finishing series? Are there any that you desperately need to finish?
