Not Finishing Series…What’s My Problem?!

Not Finishing Series…
Seriously, what the hell is my problem when it comes to finishing series? I have so many series that I need to finish. There are a multitude of reasons why I haven’t finished them yet. Is it that I want to binge read the entire series so I buy them all and wait until it’s over to read it? Or have I read the first couple of books and get to the last one and I’m just afraid for it to be over? Or is it that I read the first couple of books and then the last book somebody spoils for me and that’s not what I wanted to happen, so it’s hard for me to even open the book?
Honestly? It’s all of these reasons and maybe even some more. And the worst part of it is? I love series! I don’t know what is wrong with me lately, but I have SO many series that I need to read/finish/catch up on.
To Finish:
(series that over over)
Mara Dyer
I loved the first two books! I read them in like a couple of days. And then I bought the third book. Started reading it, got to page 40, and then I stopped. I just stopped. Why? I don’t want it to be over! I am in love with these characters and I know that once I finish the third book, I’m only going to want more! But I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!!
Divergent
I read the first two and then my boyfriend spoils it by saying something and of course I have to look it up online to make sure he was wrong. And he wasn’t. And I know that Allegiant is going to make me cry and I’m going to want to throw it across the room. But again, I need to finish it.
The Jessica Darling Series
I read and loved the first book. Back in high school. I bought all the books. One of my best friends borrowed the books and read them in like a week. She loved the series. I just need to sit down and binge read this series from the beginning because book 1, I fell in love with Marcus Flutie. And for me to remember the main characters names in this series without even picking up the books since my sophomore year in high school (which was A DECADE AGO) it just means that this series is just a MUST FINISH PRONTO!
Shadow Falls
I read the first book and loved it. I own all the other books including the new spin-off series. Again, I just need to sit down and binge read.
Daughter of Smoke & Bone
Read and loved the first one! Read it over a year ago and I am only now reviewing it (next month, I have it scheduled for). I recently bought the second one and plan on buying the third one soon.
To Catch Up On:
(series that haven’t finished yet)
Throne of Glass
I LOVED the first one. So much that I almost immediately bought Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire, and The Assassin’s Blade. I just got them in the mail and they look SO pretty! I’m hoping to dive into the rest of this series this summer and catch up. Since book 4 (Queen of Shadows comes out in September!!!)
Starbound
I’m currently half way through These Broken Stars and I’m loving it. And I have an eARC of This Shattered World and I just know that I’m going to have to dive into it soon!
Why am I blanking on series that I have already started but haven’t been finished yet? 
To Start:
(series that I haven’t but want to start)
The Selection
I bought the first book and it looks like the blogosphere is obsessed with this series and I’m dying to find out why.
Something Strange and Deadly
I have the first two books in the trilogy, signed even. I just haven’t picked them up yet.
Shatter Me
My brother bought this book for me for Christmas a few years ago. I know this is going to be one of those books of why didn’t I read this sooner?
White Rabbit Chronicles
I have Alice in Zombieland. Again, my brother gave it to me for Christmas a few years ago. I’ve heard awesome things about it. And I was super excited when I first got it. But still it sits on my shelves.
So let’s talk!
I know I am most likely missing a lot of series. This is just everything I can think of that I have the books for. And that’s not even counting the series that are STARTING this year! Oh lord. I have SO much reading to catch up on, it’s crazy. 
Do you have the same problem as I do when it comes to finishing series? What series haven’t you finished? What series do you want to start?

  1. Zed

    I have a similar problem, although I am getting better at this, I think. When it's an exceptionally awesome series (like Splintered) I delay reading the final books because then it's over…my heart still hasn't gotten over the HP series ending yet!

    Series that I need to finish include: Splintered, Something Strange and Deadly, Iron Fey Series…Ones that I need to catch up on are: Bloodlines, Lynburn Legacy..

  2. I definitely have this problem! I don't know why I do it either. A few of the series I know I don't want to end, but I really do want to read the ending. I just haven't. If I had to make a list of unfinished series, it would be LONG. At least I know I'm not the only one with this problem.

  3. I have yet to start Bloodlines. And Iron Fey. Oh man, there are so many!!

    I'm going to try and get even better at this during the summer! Glad to know I'm not the only one with this problem.

    thanks for stopping by and joining in on the conversation!

  4. Oh, I know what you mean! I keep thinking of even more series that I either haven't started yet or need to catch up, etc. It just keeps on going!

    So glad I'm not the only one with this issue! I really love series, though!

    Thanks for stopping by and joining in on the conversation!
