Top Ten Series Rachel Hasn't Finished

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Today's topic is the top ten series you haven't finished, either because you didn't like them or because you just procrastinated.

I read and loved the first book in each of the following series, but for whatever reason, I haven't gotten around to reading the rest of the books.

1. Hex Hall series by Rachel Hawkins
I have the second book sitting on my shelf right now, and I think the reason I'm procrastinating is because I don't really remember the first book that well so I'd have to reread it first.

2. Luxe series by Anna Godbersen
I've owned this series for years but just finally read the first one about a year ago. I really enjoyed it, so I hope I actually do read the rest of them someday.

3. Across the Universe series by Beth Revis
The reason I've yet to read book two is because I'd have to get it from the library and that involves checking it out and I'm lazy. Which is the lamest excuse ever, but yeah.

4. Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan
I absolutely loved the first book! I borrowed the next two from Megan, so I'll be getting to them soon.

5. Anna Dressed in Blood series by Kendare Blake
The second book just came out recently, so it's not that bad that I haven't read it yet. I'll have to see if my library has it.

6. Gemma Doyle series by Libba Bray
The first book was AMAZING, I love historical fiction, and Libba Bray is brilliant. I have no idea why I haven't read the rest of the series. Something is wrong with me.

7. Wings series by Aprilynne Pike
I read the first book when it came out. I was in like, sixth grade, I think, which was before I knew to anticipate sequels and stuff. Those were the days before I finished a book and obsessively stalked the author on Twitter to find out when the rest of the series would be released.

The next few series are the ones that I didn't really like. I am curious to see how some of them end though, so I might end up finishing them at some point.

8. The Immortals series by Alyson Noel
I read the first book when I was in sixth or seventh grade, aka my Twilight obsession phase. :D It's been awhile since I read these books, but I remember reading the first one and really enjoying it, and then being disappointed to discover that the rest of the series kind of just went downhill. I believe I made it about halfway through the third book before finally giving up.

9. Fallen series by Lauren Kate
I loved the first book, but the second book was just kind of meh. Still, I stuck with the series, reading the third book and hoping it would get better. Unfortunately, it didn't, so I probably won't be reading the fourth book anytime soon.

10. A Need So Beautiful series by Suzanne Young
I've heard nothing but good things about this book, but when I read it, I just didn't enjoy it that much. I didn't hate it, it was just kind of meh for me. I do think that if I decided to reread it, I'd enjoy it a lot more than I did the first time, so who knows. Maybe I'll read the first book so I can continue with the series.

Do you love any of the above series? Let me know! Maybe you'll encourage me to actually finish them. :D
