Hello people! How are you? Today I am here with the first of a long list of post for the end of the year/beginning of the new one, and I am so excited about it!
Thanks to Realms of My Mind I started this project to help me be a better bookworm and finish or continue more series. And you know what? It really helped me out! Later on I would post about the series that I have finished and continued, but since December is still going and I may have some titles to add to the list of series continued/finished (I’ll keep my finger crossed!) I decided to start with some series that I have decided to drop. Sometimes it happens to lost interest in something, and to know when it is right to drop something instead of let the series wait year after year after year that you would be back to it (when you don’t really want to do it!) it is a good thing, right?
I really loved The Eyre Affair but… but then I lost interest in the series. I have waited a long time before continuing it, and all the magic disappeared. I enjoyed the second one, but I didn’t fall in love with it, and I wasn’t hooked up. Something went wrong, and the book didn’t connect with me. And after that I am really not interested in the other books anymore. I have waited a bit to see if maybe after a year my interest picked up again but… no such luck! Skulduggery Pleasant is an enjoyable series, and I had quite a good time with the first book but it wasn’t enough. I really love the idea of this series, but in the end I have no interest in continuing it. The Beautiful and The Cursed was good but then I didn’t find myself interested in the sequels, so I think it’s time to let it go. And then we have The Falconer. This one was a really hard decision, but I fell out of love with this series with the second volume, I wasn’t really into it as much as I was hoping and I have to be honest with myself and say that I am not really interested anymore in this series.
This last bunch was a bit more harder to let go, but it was time. I appreciated a lot the idea behind Dresden’s Files but these books didn’t click with me, and I can’t find in myself enough interest to read more of them. The Young Elites is the same. I was so intrigued by the idea, but I wasn’t really into the books. And so yeah, even if I have to read the last one, so I am almost there, I think I would let it go. And then we have the one that really pain me. I love Kristoff, so the idea of dropping on of his series is just bad. But I didn’t love the first book as much as I was hoping. And this second one was quite boring. I wasn’t invested in the characters, sadly, and I was quite bored by the reading.
Sometimes letting go is so hard, but it is necessary. I have so many series to continue and finish, and just keep in the list series that I don’t really want to read anymore it seems a bit silly, so here we are!
And what about you? Are there some series that you let go lately? Let me know!
