Series I've Decided I No Longer Want to Read/Finish

A weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

1.) The Remnant Chronicles by Mary Pearson
I know a lot of people love this series. I am not one of those people. I was super excited about the first book, I loved the tension and mystery, then suddenly it became a travel and all the drama was gone. I'm not really interested in more.

2.) Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Another series that a ton of people love and I just couldn't get into. I'm not a big contemporary fan and I tried this series because I know a lot of people love it. But it just wasn't for me. I didn't like the romance and I didn't love the characters.

3.) A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
I thought I was gping to love this book and this series. But then I read the first book and hated it so much that I started this blog. I think I heard recently that they are doing a TV show and I am slightly tempted to watch it, but not finish the series.

4.) Elemental Trilogy by Sherry Thomas
The first book in this series was okay, and for awhile I considered reading the next book in the series. But mostly I was just curious to have my theories validated and to own them because the covers are so pretty. But over time I have just lost interest.

 5.) Blood Rose Rebellion by Rosalyn Eves
The second book in this duology comes out soon and I really don't want to read it. I saw it on Netgalley and considered requesting it but then I remembered that I wasn't blown away by the first book and would rather read something I would love.

6.) The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
This is another book I was super excited to read but didn't love as much as I had hoped and another series I want to own because the covers are so pretty. But I just saw the new cover and while I thought it was beautiful I have no interest in reading it.

7.) Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
I was not super impressed by the first book in this series. But it wasn't as dark as I was hoping or as interesting a retelling. So when the new books in the series came out I just had no interest in reading the rest.

8.) Zodiac by Romina Russell
I thought this was going to be an amazing YA science fiction series but it didn't blow me away. I mean don't get me wrong, it was fine. But it wasn't so good that I had much interest in reading more books in the series. Plus I think it's up to four books now and I'm just not interested.

9.) Kingdom of Fire by Jessica Cluess
I just saw the cover for the third book in this series and my first thought was "wow, is there still more books coming out in that series?" I'm just not all that interested in reading them. The first book was fine but I'm not invested enough to read more.

10.) The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey
I saw the cover for the third book in this series and thought it looked really cool and then I saw what it was for and I lost interest. I thought this book was going to be a total be book but it wasn't and I don't want to finish it.

11.) Reawakened by Collen Houck
I was super excited to read a book inspired by Egyptian mythology. But I really just wasn't impressed by this book. It was just too cliché a supernatural romance. The covers are cool but that's where my interest in this series ends.

12.) The Black Angel Chronicles by Kristen Orlando
I read the first book in this series recently and I was super excited for a spy novel but that's not really what this book was. It was much more of a contemporary romance. But with the second book coming out I just am not interested.

There you have it. All the series I have decided I'm not interested in reading anymore or finishing. Have you read any of these series? What did you think? Are there any that I should actually finish? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!


  1. You're probably better off quitting the Anna and the French Kiss series. It's doesn't get less Romancey as it goes on & the last book was not my fave. I'm not doing any more of the Dorothy Must Die series either. The last 1/4th of the book ALMOST made me want to, because it started to heat up-- but then I just kept remembering that dreadful romance that was being forced in with that Knox dude and BLAH.

  2. I agree with you on Dorothy Must Die! While I loved the first book, the second one was terrible and did not improve once it hit the third, so overall I just quit. Definitely not worth reading.

  3. I couldn't even finish Reawakened. And as a huge ancient Egypt lover myself it was too much of a let down. It just frustrated me.

  4. Ow! Seeing a few faves here! But learned long ago that not everyone will love the same book! Of course I am reminded that I still need to finish up Dorothy Must Die!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  5. I totally agree on Dorothy Must Die! I got about halfway through and it did nothing for me. The Anna and the French Kiss series was also very underwhelming.

  6. I totally agree on Zodiac. I thought it was decent but it didn't blow me away enough to finish the series. I'm also not a huge contemporary fan and have yet to finish one lately. Interesting list!

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday

  7. I did abandon the Dorothy series. I think it may have been to angsty for me. Not sure, but I was not rushing to read more. I read Anna, and liked it, but was not quite over the moon as everyone else.

  8. I really liked Anna and the French Kiss, but I do like a good contemporary! However, I've never been interested in Dorothy Must Die.
