Book Series I Won’t Be Continuing #1

This blog post will probably be quite a controversial one since I’m going to be talking about the book series’ that I’ve gave up on and won’t be continuing and there are a lot of popular books on this list so I just wanted to remind everyone that these are my own opinions and it’s okay if our opinions differ as long as we are nice about it in the comments.

The Folk of the Air by Holly Black

I’ve read the first two books in this series, I rated the first four stars but the more I think about it the more I want to change my rating to a three. Maybe it’s the hype surrounding this series but I don’t find it as interesting as a lot of other people do so I don’t want to read the third one.

Kingmaker Chronicles by Amanda Bouchet

I liked the first book but I really disliked the second because I felt like the characters changed and didn’t feel like the same ones I read about in the first book.

Simon Snow by Rainbow Rowell

I read and enjoyed Carry On when it first came out but I haven’t read Wayward Son, I thought Carry On was a standalone and I felt like it didn’t need a sequel.

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

I know this book is meant to discuss shallow people but I disliked how 2D every character felt in it so I won’t be continuing with the rest of the books.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

I’ve read the first book in this series but haven’t read the second. I did really enjoy Caraval but this is more of a case of just losing interest in the books rather than me disliking them.

Shatter me by Tahereh Mafi

I loved the first trilogy in this series and was so excited when it was announced it was being continued because I really thought the ending of Ignite Me needed more to the story but I ended up being disappointed in Restore Me (Book 4). I didn’t like Juliette and thought there was some unnecessary drama with her and Warner’s relationship.

Shades of Magic by V.E. Schwab

I liked the first one in this series and I thought it had an interesting concept but I feel like I’ve forgotten about what happened and I tried to pick up the sequel but I just couldn’t get into it so I’ve decided to give up on the series.

The Others by Anne Bishop

I’ve read the first three books in this series and I enjoyed them but I just kind of lost interest in the series and I’m not that excited about continuing with the series as I once was so I decided not to.

 

What series have you gave up on and decided not to continue? Have you read any of the books I’ve mentioned above?

Backlist Books I Want To Read In 2020

backlist books i want to read in 2020 pic
There is so many new releases that I’m so excited about that sometimes I forget about some of the books that have already been out for years that sound equally as exciting. Here is a short list of some of the backlist books I want to read in 2020.

backlist books i want to read in 2020-1

Signal to Noise by Silvia Moreno-Garcia – I’m interested in all of Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s books because they all sound amazing and from vastly different genres. Signal to Noise would be my first book by her and I hope I love it so I can read her other books and love them too.

Renegades by Marissa Meyer – This book has been on so many of my seasonal tbr lists but I still haven’t read it yet, I’m definitely going to read it this year.

Leviathan Wakes (The Expanse book 1) by James S.A Corey – I’ve recently been wanting to watch The Expanse tv series but I didn’t even realise it was based on a book until recently (I have heard of the book before but I just didn’t realise it was the book the show was based on) so now I really want to read the series before starting the show.

backlist books i want to read in 2020-2
The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury – I loved the Sorrow duology by Melinda Salisbury so I really want to read more by this author.

Skinwalker by Faith Hunter – I love reading adult urban fantasy series, I’ve read the Kate Daniels, Mercy Thompson and Night Huntress series and I’ve always seen this series on similar lists as those books.

Three Parts Dead by Max Gladstone – I loved This Is How You Lose the Time War and I’d really like to try some of the authors other works.

What backlist books do you plan on reading in 2020?
