I’m a lover of series, because if I get attached to characters, series mean that I can continue to love the characters for however long the series is being published. However, with reading series comes some difficulties that usually end up with me never finishing them. Knowing that, I decided that I wanted to take some time in 2019 to finish some series that I started and loved, but never finished. Thanks to Anna @ Reader and Proud for hosting!
My biggest problem when I come to series is that I’m afraid of them ending. I tend to read the entire series up until the last one, and then never continue because I didn’t want to lose the characters and never experience their fun antics ever again. Below, you’ll find that a few of the series that I list have only 1 book left for me to read, and that’s why.
Another problem I have is loving the series and catching up to the author as they’re writing them. That leads to me stopping the series until the next book is published, and I tell myself “I’ll reread the series and then read this next one” and then I never do. And then more books come out, and I just never continue the series because I don’t remember the details.
So, since I have quite a few series that I have to read just the last book of, I’m just going to feature a few of the series I want to work on, and then have a short paragraph at the very bottom with the other series that I want to get through. If you don’t see a series on here that you know I’ve started but aren’t talking about, it’s probably because I decided to drop it: frequently, I start series and then decide that I don’t want to bother continuing them. This post is for series that I love and want to finish, but just haven’t because I’ve been too afraid or busy to finish.
