TTT: Series I’ve Given Up On

TTT-Big2 (1)
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.This weeks topic is series I’ve given up on. The theme for this weeks topic is reading the first book in a series and not loving it enough to continue with it.


  1. Blackthorn and Grim series / Juliet Marillier / read the first book
  2. Shadowdance series / David Dalglish / read the first book
  3. Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy / Laini Taylor / read the first book and part of the second
  4. Shattered Realm series / Cinda Williams Chima / read the first book
  5. Shades of Magic trilogy / V. E. Schwab / read the first book
  6. The Queen of the Tearling trilogy / Erika Johansen / read the first two books
  7. Lumatere Chronicles / Melina Marchetta / read the first book
  8. The God Fragments series / Tom Lloyd / read the first book
  9. Rise of the Empress / Julie C. Dao / read the first book
  10. Luna series / Ian McDonald / read the first book


There are so many other series and books I want to read that I won’t be continuing with these series. Most of the books mentioned I enjoyed but I didn’t love them. What series have you given up on? I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.

  1. Not Shades of Magic! Although to be honest, I can imagine the sheer size of the last book being enough to put people off 😆 I still need to finish reading the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy and The Queen of the Tearling trilogy – I do intend to, it just takes me forever apparently.

    1. I know, I’m sorry. I just didn’t love it. Yeah I’m the same sometimes. I hope you finish them soon. 😄


    1. Yeah some of these books I liked but didn’t love and as you say it’s important to prioritise the books you love.


  2. I haven’t read any of those series.

    I don’t think I’m going to continue on with Illuminae. Maybe it’s better in print, but the story pissed me off about halfway through and I had to google the end to get enough motivation to finish it.


  3. I liked the Black Thorne and Grim series. Haven’t read any of your other books listed.

    I doubt I will continue the Invisible Library series nor the Hybrid Chronicles (a YA series whi h I rarely read).

    1. Yeah I liked the first book but I didn’t love it and there are so many more books I’m more excited about so…
