YA fiction and series seem to go hand in hand. There are SO MANY series out there and I've noticed that I have a tendency to start with a lot of series that I then fail to finish. New books come along, I forget what happened in the previous books... there are a lot of reasons why I have not finished with series I've started.
Here's my list of ten finished series that I have started and actually plan on finishing!
1. The Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bargudo - I've read the first book on this trilogy and though my mind wasn't completely blown by it, I loved Bardugo's style of writing and world building, so I am definitely picking up the two other books a some point. In trilogies I always tend to like the second book the best, so my expectations are pretty high.
2. Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth - I've been postponing reading Allegiant for such a long time because everything I've heard about it has been pretty negative. I haven't been spoiled, but I kind of know what to expect. Though I am prepared for disappointment, I feel like I should finish this series because I liked the first two books so much. What do you think? Should I keep loving the first two books or possibly ruin the whole series by reading the final book?
3. Delirium trilogy by Lauren Oliver - I read the first book in this series quickly after its publication when the two other books were not available yet. Once the other two books were published, I had kind of forgotten the first book and never got around rereading it or the two other books. I really remember liking the first book, so at some point I want to reread it and then continue with the follow-ups.
4. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead - I read the first two books in this series when I was still very much in mood for vampire studies. Then I started to read other stuff and distanced myself from vampires. I really LOVED the first two books and I am just waiting for the moment I get excited about vampires again so I can reread the first two books and keep going with this series.
5. Legend trilogy by Marie Lu - I read the first book in this trilogy last year just before the start of my uni semester. I absolutely LOVED it, but never got around to continuing with the series because I suddenly got busy with dissertation and other uni tasks. I am so looking forward to continuing with this series because the first book was phenomenal!
6. Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor - The first book in this series was the type of book I usually don't like, but for some reason, it intrigued me and made me want to continue with this series. I have the second book on my shelf ready to be read and I'm just waiting for the moment I am looking for something paranormal and romantic.
7. To All the Boys I've Loved Before duology by Jenny Han - I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY I HAVEN'T READ THE SECOND BOOK ALREADY. SILLY, SILLY ME!
8. Mara Dyer trilogy by Michelle Hodkin - I was so intrigued by the first two books and so excited about the release of the third one and then I came across some negative reviews and kind of put the last book on the back burner. Also, I feel like I would have to read the first two books again before going to the third one because there's just so much going on in these books. SHOULD I READ THE LAST BOOK?
9. Under the Never Sky trilogy by Veronica Rossi - I have the full trilogy beautifully in my bookshelf and I just need to pick up the third book to finish with it. I was a huge fan of the first two books and I have high hopes for the final book! I might need a reread of books 1 and 2 though...
10. Summer trilogy by Jenny Han - I read the first book of this trilogy in December 2009 from a library copy and was disappointed to notice the library did not have the follow-up books. After reading To All the Boys I've Loved Before I was reminded of Jenny Han's awesomeness and since then I've been meaning to re-read the first book in this trilogy and then continue with books 2 and 3.
This list proved to me that there are A LOT of books I need to put on my reread list... oh my. Would it be possible to take a break from everything else for a year and just read? Pretty please.
