Hello, lovelies! How are you? I hope you are all doing great!
For today’s Thursday Talks, I want to talk about the series which I’ve read the book one, but I’m not planning to read the sequels to it. Well, it is not because the series is bad. I totally enjoyed reading the book one, but do you know the feeling of being contented already with it? Or having this feeling that you don’t like to follow the story anymore even if you loved the book one? That’s the situation that I currently have.
So, what series am I talking about?
1. Divergent Series by Veronica Roth
I loved the idea behind this book, but, I’m not that invested with the characters’ journey for me to continue reading book two.
2. Legend Series by Marie Lu
I don’t know what to feel about this book. I loved it, but I just lost interest in the other books. Now, that there is news about a fourth book coming soon, I’m a little bit moved to read them, especially the description of Rebel seems really interesting. But, still, I’m not making a move to grab the book two of this series yet.
3. Mara Dyer Series by Michelle Hodkin
Ahhh I love the book one. But, like the other series, I’m not sure if I still plan to read the book two of this series.
4. A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket
Oh no. I definitely won’t continue reading the sequels for this one. I know that the author wants to tell a message here, but I just can’t handle the situation of the characters. I find the story quite triggering for me. So this is definitely a series that I will never read again.
5. The Heroes of Olympus Series by Rick Riordan
I love Rick Riordan for writing PJO, but for this series and his other series, I’m not yet sure if I still want to read them. As for this one, I was able to finish two books, and I’m already at book three, which I’m supposedly still be reading because if I still remember, I only got to the middle part.
6. The Raven Cycle Series by Maggie Stiefvater
This is quite interesting, but I don’t think I still plan to follow the story anymore.
7. Unwind Dystology by Neal Shusterman
I’ve read book one, and it is creepy if something like this would happen in the future. I find it an unhuman how something like this becomes legal in the story, and how they chose the kids who will be unwound. But, despite its interesting plot, I don’t want to read the other books in the series anymore.
And, these are the series that I’m not planning to read anymore. Of course, for now, that’s how I feel for these series right now, but who knows? Maybe, I’ll pick the book two and other sequels in the future. But, now, I’ll just leave it at the back of my TBR list and let other readers enjoy them.
Thanks for reading!
How about you? Do you also have a series which you don’t want to read the following books in it anymore? Or are there a series which you’ve gone tired of after reading some books in it?
