There must be lots of them. I am not a reader who keeps on reading a series even though I have lost interest in the genre or topic or even though the series becomes just plain boring.
So I went through my Goodreads account to see what series are still unfinished or discontinued (by me). Here we go:
Top five series I have not finished
- The Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger.
Stopped after book one. I have book two and three – and maybe even four, not sure – lying around here, but when I started on number 2 it bored me to death.
- The Agatha Raisin series by M. C. Beaton
When Agatha started to seriously lie to get her neighbour to marry her I stopped immediately. I hate that sort of stuff.
- The Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J. R Ward
What a promising series! I loved the guys and could have continued forever. But then she treated V so unfairly. I managed the following book six but that was it. The series had deteriorated considerably.
- Sookie Stackhouse by Charlaine Harris
Book seven was my last one. I am still interested but just not as much as before. It might have to do with the image of that greasy Eric from the TV series that I now have in my head. Until I saw him I adored Eric just as much as the next girl.
- The Narnia books by C. S. Lewis
What a disappointment! My own Narnia project given up after one book, I feel bad about that, but I found the first book rather disappointing.
Tons of mystery series: Crowner John, Matthew Bartholomew, Daisy Dalyrymple…after a while I lose interest and stop reading them for one reason or another. However, there are a few series that I follow no matter what, but that is a topic for another list…:).
