I do this thing where I read the first book of a series and then never finish the series? I think for a lot of these it’s because the series wasn’t a series when I read the first book. It also might be because I like standalone books better generally? So I thought I’d do a post of the series I’ve started but haven’t finished.
Legend by Marie Lu
I love this book so much. It’s honestly so good and I adore it. But the second book in the series wasn’t out when I read it, so I never got back into it. My brother read them and said they were fine but he was disappointed with the last one. I’ll probably read them again at some point, but not any time soon.
Divergent by Veronica Roth
I read Divergent and Insurgent when they both came out and I had every intention of reading Allegiant. But I was super disappointed with the end of Insurgent and I just never got to it. My sister told me how it ends so I’ll probably never read Allegiant ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Wither by Lauren DeStefano
I don’t know if this was meant to be a series, but I’m 99% sure it wasn’t when I first read it (but it’s totally set up to be so). I really enjoyed reading it and highly recommend it, but I wasn’t super attached to it and never continued.
Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
I love this book. It’s one of my all-time favourites. But I didn’t know it was a series for the longest time (like, until summer of 2016 and I read it in at least 2011). My sister read the rest of the trilogy and LOVED it, but I still don’t think I’ll continue on. I was happy with the ending (although I do love Yelena and Valek so maybe I’ll read it just for them).
Evermore by Alyson Noël
I read this book forever ago (like junior high) and enjoyed it and had every intention of continuing the series, but again I just didn’t? I think I just never got around to getting the rest of the books. And now I think I’ve outgrown it. Reading the reviews on Goodreads is pretty funny though. Like this bit:
Recommends it for: DouchebagsRecommended to Kiki by: A douchebag
I might reread it just to see if it’s really that bad.
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
This book just didn’t click with me, and I didn’t feel attached to any of the characters so I didn’t keep going. I also like cliffhanger-y endings, and I was happy with the ending. And the next book wasn’t out when I read it and I wasn’t attached enough to get it when it did come out.
Fury by Elizabeth Miles
I don’t remember much about this book except that I’m 99% sure the main character and her best friend keep track of the out-of-state license plates they see. If that’s the only thing I remember, there’s something wrong with this book.
Matched by Ally Condie
I like the first book of this series, but again I missed the boat. This is another case where the next book wasn’t out when I read this one and I wasn’t attached enough to get it. I heard it ended pretty poorly though, so I’m not too fussed about it.

There was one other series I almost finished. I think I was almost done the second out of three (I’m pretty sure) and just stopped, literally in the middle of a sex scene. I can’t find that book anywhere though? So idk what it’s called. BUT it was about a girl who was really depressed and then she meets this guy (of course) who I’m pretty sure is an angel? and they obviously fall in love and there’s tension between the angel and the girl’s ex-best friend turned maybe friend. That’s all I remember. If this sounds familiar to you please let me know what it was called because this is driving me insane!
Are there any series you’ve started but not finished? Are there any on my list that I should keep reading? Let me know!
Thanks for reading! xx
