Getting back to blogging again means getting back to doing Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the girls over at The Broke and the Bookish.
Every week TB&TB posts a different prompt and asks bloggers to make a top ten list of their answers to that prompt. This week's prompt is: Top Ten Series I Haven't Finished.
Here, in no particular order, is my list:
1) The Dante Valentine series by Lillith Saintcrow: I've read the first two books in this five book urban fantasy series, but I haven't yet read the other three (even though I own them). I attempted a reread of the ones I have read shortly before I stopped blogging last year but didn't get even halfway through the first one due to burnout. I still plan to read them. Someday.
2) Dune by Frank Herbert: I loved the first book in this series and own all six of them. I just haven't gotten around to reading the rest of them. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I've heard people say that the first one is the best, the second one is okay, and the rest of them just go downhill from there. I've heard others say that the whole series is fantastic so part of me is looking forward to them but the rest of me is wondering if it would be worth it.
3) The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien: I've read Fellowship but that's about it. I know, crazy, right? I've seen all three films but I know that that doesn't count. Again, I own them all, I just haven't sat down and read them. That's going to change soon, hopefully. I'm currently reading The Hobbit and will be attempting to read the Rings trilogy after that (maybe one per month?).
4) Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery: Own them all. Only read the first one. My gods, I'm sensing a pattern here.
5, 6, & 7) Baby-Sitter's Club by Ann M. Martin, Goosebumps by R.L. Stein, & Fear Street by R.L. Stein: There were just too many books in these series for me to read all of them before I eventually grew out of them.
8) Discworld by Terry Pratchett: I'm so close to having read all of the ones that are out but I want to savor them like a fine wine because I know that there probably aren't very many more left.
9) Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy: You all know that I have an obsession with this series but it's inconvenient and expensive to have them shipped over from the UK so I'm behind on them. I haven't read books six or seven although I managed to get my significant other into them so we'll hopefully be getting them as soon as we have some extra cash to spare. Now if the US would just get its frakking act together and start selling the rest of the series here I could read them in a timely fashion.
10) Twilight by Stephanie Meyer: Read the first one. Hated it with a passion. Will forever refuse to read the rest of these "books."
