Top Ten Tuesday: Finished Series I Have YET to Finish

top ten tuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Ugh, this topic is me right now. I’m the WORST at finishing series… Let’s get this over with..

Infernal_Devices_Book_1_Clockwork_Angel_9781406321326_CVR clockwork prince clockwork princess

  • The Infernal Devices Trilogy by Cassandra Clare: I’ve only read the first and soon after finishing I was spoiled on the epilogue for Clockwork Princess. This was about a year ago. I’m not sure if being spoiled on the ending is what is keeping me from continuing, no idea.

half blood deity sentinel

  • Covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout: I know, your shocked right?? Coming from someone who is OBSESSED with this lady, you’d think I would be done with this series by now. Nope.. Still have only read the 1st one… I’m terrible…

image image image

  • Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling: Okay, cut me some slack. I just started this summer and I’m going to start book 5 at some point. I WILL have this series finished by the end of the year. :)

the darkest minds never fade in the afterlight

  • The Darkest Minds trilogy by Alexandra Bracken: I literally only need to read the last book in this series. I still have yet to do so and I pre-ordered it. I’m bad…

bloodlines the indigo spell the ruby circle

  • Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead: Someone’s favorite series of all time (well at least 1 of them anyway), Vampire Academy you’d think I’d be done with this series. Nope… Still have only read the first. Have I told you guys how bad I am with keeping up with series!? It’s not that I don’t want to read the series, I do.

the lightning thief the titans curse the last olympian

  • Percy Jackson & the Olympians series by Rick Riordan: Read the first book so far. Again, not that I don’t want to read the series, I do. Just other books call to me..

daughter of smoke and bone days of blood and starlight dreams of gods and monsters

  • Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor: Okay, thankfully I only need to read the last one. But oh my gosh, my whole reason why I haven’t read it is the SIZE OF THE DANG BOOK! It’s massive!!! Plus, I’m not much of a fantasy person as you can tell. Not that I don’t like the series, I’m actually in love with it.

uglies pretties specials

  • The Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld: I’ve only read the first. This is a dystopian series that I read like. I like the idea of this world and I have been DYING to continue since I read the first book… Just haven’t done so yet.

marked burned redeemed

  • House of Night series by P.C. and Kristin Cast: I started this series a long time ago. Maybe like 4 or 5 years ago. I’m almost finished with the series, I have the final 2 books left. I’m at this point, that I’m curious to see how it all ends but I’m just like, okay 12 books… Really not necessary.

blue bloods misguided angel gates of paradise

  • Blue Bloods series by Melissa De La Cruz: This is another series I read a while back. Honestly I don’t remember anything from this series. So if I ever do finish it, I will have to start over. I do though remember really liking it. I mean, comeon it’s vampires. Vampires are the reason I love reading. Thank you Twilight. ;)

top ten tuesday

twilight the hunger games vampire academy

1. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer: This is my all time everything! I’m to have a re-reading very soon and I miss this saga so much! I miss getting to go to the premiers, reading the books, buying merchandise, fangirling to everyone, being apart of such an AMAZING fandom.. Sorry, guys I’m getting a little deep here.. I’m serious though… I miss Twilight a BUNCH!

2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins: It’s been so long since I’ve read this trilogy, but I was obsessed with it for months after reading! (at least 6!) The feelings are still very raw and I still remember crying and being happy and just experiencing all the feels through this AMAZING trilogy!

3. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead: Oh gosh, it’s been like 5 years since I read one of my all time favorite series… I miss Dimitri and Rose and everyone! I still need to catch up on Bloodlines, but hopefully soon! #TEAMDIMITRI!

5. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins: THEY ARE SOOO CUTE! I loved their story and would definitely without a doubt, re-read this again!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Were Hard For Me To Read

top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is ‘top ten characters who would be sitting at my lunch table’. This is is no particular order.

the-host broken beauty the queens choice

1. The Host by Stephenie Meyer: This is what started back up my love for reading last year in 2013. So it was difficult for me because it had been so long since I had last read. But, thankfully I absolutely ADORED this book and I can thank Stephenie Meyer (twice) for making me love reading so much! She is 100% responsible for starting my love for reading and bringing it back!

2. Broken Beauty by Lizzy Ford: The subject matter was very difficult for me. It’s one of those very touchy subjects- rape. But Lizzy Ford did an amazing job at making this a beautiful story (still need to continue)!

3. The Queen’s Choice by Cayla Cruver: Overall I had a very difficult time with this one… Yes, I overall enjoyed the book, but I just wasn’t jumping up and down dying to know what happened next. It was just a “bleh” read for me.

mind games the here and now bloodlines

4. Mind Games by Kiersten White: This was another I had trouble with. But I definitely had more trouble with this one… I didn’t care for the characters or what was going on. It was all too confusing to me and I didn’t like it too much.

5. The Here and Now by Ann Brashares: My memory of this book is very hazy… That’s how much I didn’t care for it. I know that’s a little harsh but it’s true. There was nothing special about this book, I couldn’t connect with the characters and I was confused the entire time!

6. Bloodlines by Richelle Mead: This is a different story… It’s been over 4 years since I last read the Vampire Academy series, so details have completely escaped me. Going back into this world after being gone from it for so long was very difficult for me for a while. Vampire Academy is one of my all time favorite series ever. The typical trend with both series is the books get better as they go on. So I know once I continue, it will only get better. ;)

the last policeman insurgent delirium

7. The Last Policeman by Ben H. Winters: My only big issue was the age difference. I’m not used to reading adult books, so reading from a guy’s point of view who’s in his 30’s was very difficult for me. I didn’t connect with him because I’m not close to his age so I don’t experience everything he’s going through (to an extent). But I overall really liked the story!

8. Insurgent by Veronica Roth: I was spoiled after reading Divergent, you’ve all heard me talk about this. I absolutely could not stand Tris in Insurgent. She was very annoying to me and I felt that she was ALWAYS arguing with Tobias… No matter what it was. They were fighting. Never happy. Ever. It annoyed me to no ends. Maybe that’s partly due to I knew the ending of Allegiant… But who knows!

9. Delirium by Lauren Oliver: I had the HARDEST time with the first half of this book. I was almost tempted to stop reading the book, I was so bored out of my mind! The ending definitely made up for the first half, but I’m not dying to pick up the second book (and it’s been a while now).

what i thought was true

10. What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick: I REALLY tried to like this book, I did. But it just didn’t work for me. I didn’t care for the characters and had a very difficult time connecting to them. This was my first book by her so I was a little nervous, but I’ve already read My Life Next Door and absolutely loved it!

twilight the vampire diaries vampire academy blue bloods marked

1. The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer: Honestly the only reason I have this on the list is because of the vampires. Pretty much anyone that has been interested in this series has probably already read it. But, definitely worth the read for vampire lovers like myself. :)

2. The Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith: Well, if you love the show you should definitely give the series a shot! Granted, the show is COMPLETELY different from the books and the books have mixed reviews.

3. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead: Ignore the title… If you have yet to read this series, definitely read if you love vampires! I promise you’ll love it!

4. Blue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz: It’s been years since I’ve read this series so any details are extremely fuzzy, but I do remember really enjoying the series!

5. House of Night series by P.C. & Kristin Cast: Not my favorite series, but definitely enjoyable. It does drag on, but don’t let that get to you. Definitely do not try and marathon this series for all 12-13 books. I promise you will most likely either get A) Super bored after a while or B) Just want to put the series down forever.

city of bones the unbecoming of mara dyer white hot kiss obsidian the summoning

6. Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare: If your a fan of TVD, your a fangirl. Fangirls like fandoms. Definitely an amazing fandom to be apart of! Every supernatural creature you can think of, is part of this series!

7. The Mara Dyer trilogy by Michelle Hodkin: Okay, creepy factor + extremely hot boyfriend = fantastic trilogy. Definitely a favorite and definitely recommended for fans of TVD!

8. The Dark Elements series by Jennifer L. Armentrout: Okay, hot guys. Paranormal… Paranormal = vampires and other supernatural beings. Well, demons and gargoyles are in that category! Ohh, did I mention hot guys??? Well, this definitely has it!!!

9. The Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout: Hot guys= CHECK!!! Hot Aliens= CHECKKKKK!!!

10. Darkest Powers trilogy by Kelley Armstrong: I don’t know, it just seemed like something TVD fans would be interested in. TVD definitely has its creepy moments and this trilogy definitely doesn’t disappoint!

This week’s theme is ‘Top Ten Tuesday: “Gateway” Books/Authors In My Reading Journey’. —

Sorry guys, I pre-write my posts and this was actually next week’s post. Sorry about that! Next week you’ll get this week’s top 10. ;)

.

This is in order of how much they have affected me.

twilight new moon eclipse breaking dawn

1. The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer: Introduced me to the Young Adult genre and vampires. My obsession with this lasted until the last book. That doesn’t mean I don’t love Twilight anymore-because I do. It’s my all time favorite series and she’s my all time favorite author. No matter how good of any book, this series/author will always come first!

the hunger games catching fire mockingjay

2. The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins: This trilogy introduced me to the dystopian genre. I love thinking about what the world could be like in the future, so this helped fuel my interest in it! Now, dystopia is one of my favorite genres to read!

fifty shades of grey fifty shades darker fifty shades freed

3. Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James: This trilogy introduced me to the adult contemporary romance. Yes, I do realize there is a lot of sex and weird stuff that goes on. I still really enjoyed this trilogy.

the-host

4. The Host by Stephenie Meyer: I stopped reading after I finished the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy the summer before I started college (so 2 years ago). I picked up The Host last August (2013) because of the movie. Since The Host, I have been reading nonstop and I thank Stephenie Meyer again for bringing me back to reading. :)

shadow and bone daughter of smoke and bone

5. Shadow and Bone (The Grisha #1) by Leigh Bardugo & 6. Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone #1) by Laini Taylor: These 2 amazing books introduced me to the fantasy genre. Fantasy is a very BROAD term because pretty much any book could fall under fantasy. But, you know your in an actual fantasy book, when you can’t pronounce names! :) I VERY much enjoyed both of these books (both 5/5 stars) and I’m so glad I picked both of them up!

the last song

7. The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks: This introduced me to the contemporary side of Young Adult (as well as adult with Dear John). I was such a big fan of Miley Cyrus growing up, and when I heard she was going to be in The Last Song, I immediately went and got the book. I absolutely LOVE this book and even 5 years later (I think that’s how long it’s been, maybe longer) and I still remember pretty much everything that happened in this book! I absolutely love Nicholas Sparks’ writing!

the duff

8. The D.U.F.F. by Kody Keplinger: I read this book in one sitting. I read this in December and I still remember exactly what goes on in this book. I absolutely loved this book to pieces and is definitely one of my all time favorite books. I loved this story and the 2 main characters so very much!!!!

vampire academy

9. The Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead: I read this series when I believe Blood Promise was being released. So I read this series about 4 1/2 years ago. I don’t really remember much because I read books in between those and I was in high school, but I remember absolutely LOVING this series! It’s definitely one of my all time favorite series!!!

wait for you frigid white hot kiss obsidian

10. Anything by Jennifer L. Armentrout: Guys, if you’ve been watching my posts, you’ll know how obsessed I am with her books. I’ve read 6 of her books so far! (Wait for You, Frigid, Bitter Sweet Love, White Hot Kiss, Obsidian, and Onyx). I’ve absolutely LOVED all the books to pieces. I am now to the point where I will read anything by her and I’ve made it my goal by the end of 2014, I will have read all her books up until this year!
