It’s May 1st and we are starting the month out with a Top 5 Tuesday! This is hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm, so be sure to check out her blog for our topics for the month of May. This weeks topic is Top 5 Series I Won’t Be Finishing. This is going to be a little difficult because I rarely won’t not finish a series. Also, I’m not sure that I’ve read enough series to qualify for this but I’ll take a look at my shelves and see what I can come up with.
1. The Dark Tower by Stephen King
This one is still fresh in my mind because I just finished reading it. I really disliked it! The characters, the setting and the story line just weren’t that interesting to me. After posting my review of it, a lot of people told me to keep going with the series because the first book is nothing like the rest of the books. But… I’m not sure if I will continue or not. I may pick up the second book but I have very low expectations.
2. Time Quintet by Madeleine L’Engle
A Wrinkle In Time is another one that I read pretty recently and I just didn’t care for it. It has four more books in the series and I can’t see myself ever picking them up. I read this in preparation of seeing the movie and I never saw it. It hasn’t been getting great reviews so I’ll just wait until it’s out so I can rent it.
3. The Giver by Lois Lowry
The Giver is one of my favorite books of all time. I first read it in the 8th grade and I still love it just as much, if not more! But I honestly don’t see myself finishing this series. At least not in the near future.
4. Stephanie Plum by Janet Evanovich
My sister-in-law has been reading this series and she lent me one called Double Plum, which had the stories Plum Lucky and Plum Lovin’. I didn’t hate it but it also didn’t make me want to read this series. Also, there are 25 books in this series. Isn’t that a bit much?
5. Hercule Poirot by Agatha Christie
Another one, that I just recently read was Murder On the Orient Express and I was completely let down by it. I did enjoy detective Poirot but for right now, I have no interest in reading any more books about him.
I cannot believe that I actually had 5 of these. It took me literally like an hour to find these so I can’t imagine coming up with anymore. Which series are you not finishing? Thanks so much for reading, cya!
