A while ago, I posted a list of 5 book series I have yet to finish and there are actually many more of them! When I looked at the
very long list of unfinished series, I realize that there is no way I’m going to continue reading ALL of them. So here is a list of book series that I haven’t finished and (probably) never will.
Fallen by Lauren Kate
What if the person you were meant to be with could never be yours?
17-year-old Lucinda falls in love with a gorgeous, intelligent boy, Daniel, at her new school, the grim, foreboding Sword & Cross . . . only to find out that Daniel is a fallen angel, and that they have spent lifetimes finding and losing one another as good & evil forces plot to keep them apart.
Get ready to fall . . .

I read this book a long, long time ago, and I remember not liking it. I actually didn’t even remember what it was even about until a friend of mine asked me to watch the movie with her. After watching the movie, I remembered why I didn’t like it and I never plan on continuing this series.
The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden Series) by Julie Kagawa
Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a walled-in city. By day, she and her crew scavenge for food. By night, any one of them could be eaten. Some days, all that drives Allie is her hatred of them—the vampires who keep humans as blood cattle. Until the night Allie herself dies and becomes one of the monsters.
Forced to flee her city, Allie must pass for human as she joins a ragged group of pilgrims seeking a legend—a place that might have a cure for the disease that killed off most of civilization and created the rabids, the bloodthirsty creatures who threaten human and vampire alike. And soon Allie will have to decide what and who is worth dying for again.

Like Fallen, it’s been a while since I read this book and I hardly remember what happened. And I think I’ve already lost interest in this series so I most likely will not be continuing it.
The Selection by Kiera Cass
For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.
But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn’t want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.
Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she’s made for herself—and realizes that the life she’s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

I know a lot of people love this series, but I’m not one of them. I have the first 3 books in the series because I can never resist the temptation of a pretty cover, but I never made it past book one and I don’t think I ever will. It just wasn’t for me 😦
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.
Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors? To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother-or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.

…I’m sorry. I know many, many people love this series, but I just couldn’t do it 😦 The story was interesting enough, but for some reason, I just didn’t enjoy it as much as other people seem to.
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
This is a world divided by blood – red or silver.
The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.
That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.
Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime.
But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart.

People have told me that the third book is way better than the first two, but after Glass Sword, I’ve just lost interest in this series.
So that’s it! These are 5 book series that I don’t see myself reading in the future. I don’t really think I’ll regret it, though. There are waaay too many other books I’d rather read.
See any books you’ve read or plan to read on this list? Any book series you never plan to continue? Tell me in the comments! 😀
