Ten Finished Book Series I Haven’t Finished Yet

Top Ten Tuesday button

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature from The Broke and the Bookish. This week we are talking about book series we haven’t finished yet. I don’t read a lot of series books because I do find it hard to keep up with them. I participated in this topic in 2012 and looking at that list I never did catch up with any of those unfinished series books so I don’t have high hopes about catching up with these either. I should really just stick to standalone novels!

The first series I thought of for this topic is Outlander since I seem to be stalled at book four. But I read the author is still writing book nine so maybe I’ll catch up before the end.

All of these are 2013-2015 complete series books that I liked at the beginning but for some reason I haven’t followed up with them.

These series are complete but I am not up to date:

The Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi – I liked Shatter Me but just didn’t keep up.

The Dust Lands trilogy by Moira Young – I loved Blood Red Road but I think I just got burnt out on dystopia.

The All Souls trilogy by Deborah Harkness – The series started off great for me but I couldn’t get into book two.

The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare – I am two books behind in this series and just think I’ve lost the momentum to continue. I’ll check out the TV series though!


The Fire and Thorns series by Rae Carson – The series started off strong so I’m not sure why I didn’t follow through. And now Carson has a new series!

The Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout – I liked the first two books but just didn’t keep up with the series.

The Marked Men series by Jay Crownover – I read books 1-4 this year but haven’t read the last two books. I like the series but think I just needed to move on to something else.


The Nevermore trilogy by Kelly Creagh – I liked Nevermore but I think I just lost momentum with this series. But hey maybe I’ll pick up this Edgar Allen Poe themed series again this Halloween.

The Burn for Burn series by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian – I liked the first book okay but didn’t feel strongly enough to continue.

The Daughter of Smoke & Bone series by Laini Taylor – I rated the first book five stars but just couldn’t get into the next book.

Have you finished any of these series? Which one should I pick up again?

  1. I highly recommend the rest of the Shatter Me series. I really enjoyed it! I hope you get to read these books soon.

  2. I did finish the Laini Taylor series and loved it. I haven’t even started the rest of the books on your list. I am seeing a lot of Deborah Harkness. Guess I’d better check her out.

  3. I have to read the 2nd book in daughter of smoke and bone series. I loved the first one. Its one of my favourites.
    I feel so guilty about not completing them!

    I personally wasn’t a huge fan of the Shatter Me series. I liked them, but the last one was a bit ‘meh’, to be honest.. I haven’t read any of the other series on your list, though I am curious for the Dust lands books and the Lux series!

  5. Hi! The hardest thing for me is starting series/trilogies at this point, because I’m so busy and I’m “old” and forgetful. By the time book 2 comes out, I’ve mostly forgotten what happened in book 1. I write myself detailed summaries after reading, but it just isn’t the same and I can’t capture all the details and nuances. My new thing is to wait and read the series/trilogies after all the books are out. That’s hard though. It’s how I successfully read the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series. Although I will confess that I’m reading Mary Pearson’s and Marie Rutkoski’s trilogies as they are released. I’m collecting Jane Smiley’s epic trilogy right now – and hope to start reading soon….!

  6. Marked Men! Asa was such a fantastic end to that series. I hope you’ll pick it up again at some point.

  8. Daughter of Smoke and Bones series I have only read the first and want to read on still. But the Blood Red Road books, I have read the first, and it was interesting, but don’t know if I’ll have the desire to go on. YOu should definitely finish the Shatter Me series, I loved it! 🙂 You can check out my list in the link below!

  9. I am the worst at finishing series. From your list I also have not finished All Souls, Smoke and Bone and Lux. Usually I just get burned out or (more likely) I get distracted by other books. This reminds me that I need to go back and finish some of these series.

    I haven’t finished the Shatter Me or Nevermore series as well. I loved Nevermore so much but I think the wait for book 2 was too long and like you, I lost momentum.

  12. Sandie says:

    I highly recommend finishing Laini Taylor’s series, but like you I haven’t finished Ashes to Ashes (I did read the first two). I never recommend the Shatter Me final book.

  13. Bogdana says:

    We have quite a few series in common. I hope you to get to read them soon. 🙂

    The Mortal Instruments series is on my list to, I really really want to read more of them but just haven’t, sadly. Good list!
    Happy Reading!

  15. I totally forgot about of Gods and Monsters, I haven’t read that one yet either. I never moved past the first book in the Lux series or the Fire and Thorn series, but were good in their own way I just sort of lost interest I think.

  16. Skip the rest of TMI, honestly. I was SO bored with the last books! I loved Blood Red Road, and loved whatever the second was called even more! Raging Star… I didn’t hate, didn’t love. REBEL HEART! That was the second one 😉 Shatter Me got better with each book IMO- Ignite Me was phenomenal! I am still so on the fence about DoSaB too!
