bookworm fun with Top Ten Tuesday. This week’s topic is a fun one, so let’s
have a look see.

differently to fit my particular reading habits. The more suitable prompt or
guiding suggestion would be Series I Haven’t Started and Don’t Plan To. You
see, I have a lot of series on my shelf that once upon a time I was genuinely
interested in. But as it does, time passes, life changes us and we grow up and
away from certain likes or dislikes.
making this list. You see, it’s not that I think most of these books would be
bad reads or ill written, it’s just that they no longer suit my reading
preferences. With that said, today’s list is broken into two parts. Part one is
series I have given up on (but never started). Then part two looks at the
series I still want to finish.
this series and anything by Candace was high up on my excited-to-read TBR. I’m
not sure why or when it slipped, but I think I’ve decided medical stories –
even those that are fiction, aren’t really good for me right now. That said, my
mom read many of these, and liked them, so while I think I too would find them
good reads, I’ve simply decided to forgo this series. Amazon | Goodreads
me, I really did like this book. But years pass, and since I still haven’t
picked up book two, I feel like at this point, I won’t. Also, this one maybe
doesn’t count since it’s really only a duo! Book 1 on Amazon | Book 2 on Amazon | Goodreads
who’s read this blog for a while or has kept up on the authors I like will find
this addition surprising. In fact I’m surprised I added it to this category.
You see, Irene’s suspense novels are always on my favorites lists. But with all
of the newer series she’s releasing and a kind of weary feeling of not wanting
to go back to author’s backlists, I’ve kind of given up on adding this series
to me “read” shelf.
this series but while it was good, I don’t remember feeling particularly attached
to The Giver. Though this may be because I read it at a rapid pace, and
over the busyness of a holiday.

video, you may remember I mentioned I unhauled Sarah’s Throne of Glass series.
Prior to this, I’d already decided her ACOTAR just wasn’t for me (I really wanted
it to be). The more I read about TOG, and the more books that were announced,
plus the continued page-count of each new book, and they no longer held the
appeal they once did.
this series can me (and frustrated though I do get with America), I still love
these books. They’re my “unwind” kind of novels. I still have to read The
One and then the spin off duo Kiera wrote later on.
Gifting way (way) back when, and if memory serves me, I found it really
good. It’s a unique dystopian series that I’d like to continue on with. Only
trouble is, at this point I’d likely best re-read book one!
