Happy Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s actual theme is “standalone books that need a sequel,” but let me tell you something — I hate it when standalones get a sequel. It just feels like an unnecessary money grab to me. So I’m putting my own spin on this sequel theme and going with ten series that I still need to finish. I’m honestly the worst at finishing series. Maybe this post will give me the push I need to get through these series!
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Last year, I read up through Queen of Shadows before I took a break. I fully intended to finish that series by the end of the year, but I guess that life just got in the way. I have Empire of Storms and Tower of Dawn (though they’re currently in boxes), so I really have no excuse not to keep going.
Warcross by Marie Lu
It’s no secret that I didn’t love Warcross, but I still kind of want to know what all the hype is about? Maybe if I read the sequel, I’ll understand it better.
The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss
The Name of the Wind was easily one of my favorites of 2018. I’ve been telling myself that I’m going to read The Wise Man’s Fear soon and then I keep not doing it! I think the fact that it’s 1,000 pages is just something that’s hard for me to get over. I’m going to do it though. Eventually. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
Dublin Murder Squad by Tana French
Jackaby by William Ritter
I read Jackaby in 2017 and really enjoyed it! I remember adding the rest of the series to my library wishlist, but for some reason, I just haven’t gotten around to it. I’m so happy that I’m making this list right now because it reminded me that I need to finish this series!
Famous by Jenny Holiday
Fence by C.S. Pacat
To be fair, I’m almost caught up with Fence. (You can see my review of #1-5 and #6-10 if you’d like.) I only have two more issues until I’m caught up, so the completionist side of me really wants to just be done, but I’m kind of losing interest in this series since nothing is really happening.
Winston Brothers by Penny Reid
All for the Game by Nora Sakavic
It’s no secret that I really disliked The Foxhole Court. But so many people adore this series and I’ve heard that it gets better as it goes, so I’m really tempted to see what all the hype is about. I mean, if I’m honest, I’ll probably hate it. But I still want to know for sure!
Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
