Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
This weeks theme:
Ten Bookish Things I Want to Quit Or Have Quit (aka ten book series I think I'm going to abandon, ten bookish habits I want to quit, ten authors I quit reading, ten types of books I'm quitting, ten tropes I want to stop reading about, ten books I marked as DNF (did not finish) recently, etc. Get as creative as you want)
I'm going with Top Ten Series I Have Quit, mainly because I didn't think I would have anything original to add for the habits topic. I have a lot of fiery rage for some of these series.
1. House of Night by P.C and Kristen CastThis was one of the series that I picked up during the height of my Twilight obsession. The first book I had enjoyed. It was an interesting concept. Then the second book just went straight to the craziness. No I am all for love triangles. I like them, but when this book became a love square I was just not into it. ME THE SQUARE! Gurl, you have three guys hanging on your every word. Really?
2. Fallen Series by Lauren KateThe third book in this series was just so different from the rest of it and I wasn't a fan. I just felt meh about reading the last one.
3. My Chemical Garden by Lauren DeStefanoI read this book in one night and was really intrigued by the story but it was never something that I picked up. I just felt indifferent towards it.
4. Delirium Series by Lauren OliverI really enjoyed the first book and the second less so. I heard really bad things about the third one
5. Pretty Little Liars by Sara ShepardDid this finally end? It may have, but you never know book 1,000 might just be looming around the corner. I read the first 8, I think? They were pretty good. By no means amazing, but I read them as I watched the show. Basically just watch the show, but that too is being weirdly drawn out and it veered so stupidly from the books.
6. Iron Fey by Julie KagawaI read this book during Hurrican Sandy a few years ago. It was okay. It was fun and entertaining, but I never felt really compelled to continue on.
7. Blue Bloods by Melissa De la CruzAnother vampire book except it ended up being fallen angels and then it got so weird that I was like nah brah.
8. Evermore by Alyson NoelJust way too much angst and I enjoy angst.
9. The Vampire Diaries by L.J SmithAgain another replacement Twilight for a middle school Dana, this was the beginning of my mood reading/binge reading. I was also a huge fan of the show and basically read them for those two reasons. I may have even read books 1 and 2 in preparation for the show. But the new series that was done because of the show was just horrible. The plot was bonkers and it was just weird. Like why all of a sudden was everything in the town of Falls Church Japanese. It just was off. Pretty sure it was due to the fact that Alloy wanted another books and basically forced her hand and then fired her. Read the first four if you love the show and want a 90s throw back. DON'T CONTINUE!
10. Chronicles of Narnia by C. S LewisI loved The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe and even some of the books following it up, but I just couldn't read books from this series not involving my favorite family. There is no story for me without them. So I looked up how it ends online and I am kind of glad that I didn't have to endure all of that.
