The Last Series I abandoned

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is the last 10 books I abandoned. As somewhat of a completionist I have a tough time DNFing a book or not completing a series when I am already a few books in. I would just kind of prefer to force myself to finish off the book/series and then put them back on my shelves and never think about them again. However, there are two instances where I have started a series and have no intention of every finishing them which I thought I would share with you today!


The Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi – I read the original trilogy a couple of years ago now and I liked the first book and gradually my attention span and interest just dwindled as I continued through the series.ย  This was around the time that Restore Me was first released and before I had even read any of the series I bought a brand new hardback copy because I was sooo sure I was going to love this series as much as everyone else, alas it is sitting on my shelves unread and I have no interest in continuing on!

Lorien Legacies series by Pittacus Lore – I started this series right around the time the movie was first released which was nearly ten years ago now and I think at the time only 2-3 of the books had been published. Over the next couple of years I did end up picking up each of the books as they were released but eventually my interest and my reading preferences changed and I gave up on ever completing this series!

  1. Yep, I’m definitely with you on the Shatter Me Series. I started reading the first book but it was already so not my jam but since I don’t DNF I basically just skimmed through the whole book and read a summary on one of those recap sites to find out spoilers of what happens in the rest of the series because yeah nah, ain’t nobody got time for that ๐Ÿคฃ It’s such a popular series though!

  2. I’d considered reading the Shatter Me series when it first came out simply because of how popular it was at the time, but I still haven’t read it now. I’ve seen a lot of people be disappointed by the later books in the series so I’m not going to ever get to it.
