Last week I talked about some of the series I want to finish. This time I thought I would mention some series I will not be continuing… For now… It does not always mean I did not like the books, as you will see.
Wait for this! There are some big ones here!
Let’s start off with a bang. I read the first two books, Red Rising and Golden Son. Although I liked them well enough, I just do not feel compelled to pick up the next book any time soon (unlike the rest of the bookish world it seems!). There are far too many other books I would rather read at the moment. I will probably read Morning Star at some point. Maybe when I run into it secondhand in a charity shop…
I may have mentioned before… ahem… that I did not get on that well with The Name of the Wind. I was so looking forward to reading it after hearing all the amazing reviews and then when I read it I just felt deflated. I was so disappointed. It was not bad (I gave it 3 stars on Goodreads), but I just did not think it was that amazing.
I have no interest in continuing the series for now. The first book is still on my shelves though, so I may re-read in a few years’ time.
Now, I loved A Game of Thrones and A Clash of Kings, both of which I read at least five years ago. However, with the TV show going on and veering away from the books and George RR Martin looking more and more incapable of actually finishing the series, I just do not feel like I want to read those books right now. I am sure I will one day, but not any time soon. First I want some sort of certainty that the series will be finished.
I read Throne of Glass last year and I actually quite like it, but it did not compell me to pick up the next book. I may one day, but there are too many other series I would prefer to continue.
Am I making a mistake? Which series really deserves to be continued? Is one of these your favourite? Let me know!
Have a great weekend!
