So, this week’s theme from Bionic Book Worm is Top 5 Series I Won’t Be Finishing. Sometimes the first book is all you need to let you know it’s not the one!
5. Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi
So I know everyone says it gets so much better by the second book. But honestly, the first book is what’s supposed to draw me in, right? Instead, this one just left me furious. I loved Mafi’s style, but the story and storyline? Hard pass.
4. Soul Screamers by Rachel Vincent
I think I just missed the boat with this series. But maybe not? It was set up to be a weird love triangle and I’m just over those.
3. Blood of Eden by Julie Kagawa
I read The Immortal Rules for a grad school project, and it was a cool read, but I was immediately spoiled for the rest of the series. And I just don’t really feel like putting that much effort into something when I already know exactly how it ends.
2. The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
So I was super into this series in college. Like to the point where my friends and I were reading the books out loud to each other. But then it got really weird and not enjoyable. Then I found out about the Cassandra Clare drama. Then the movie…overall, there was just A Lot going on with this series for me, so I just can’t make myself care enough to see how it ends.
1. Divergent by Veronica Roth
Again, had the ending spoiled, don’t particularly care to read the third book just because I know how it’s all gonna turn out.
