Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is top ten bookish things I’ve quit. I chose to list series that I’ve quit this year. I could only come up with six. I don’t read many series, and I’m a habitual series-quitter. I quit way more series than I finish. Please don’t hate me if I list your favorite books here, but let me know if I should continue with any of these.
Series I’ve Quit This Year (So Far)
Magonia – Maria Dahvana Headley. I just couldn't relate to the narrators. They’re too whiny for my tastes. I don’t think I could read a whole series written from their points-of-view.
The Purgatorium – Eva Pohler. Book #1 was free on Amazon, and it sounded like a good horror story. Unfortunately, I struggled to finish it. It’s too unbelievable to be scary.
Sky Jumpers – Peggy Eddleman. This middlegrade dystopia has a kickass heroine, but I want more science in my science fiction. It's a good book, but it doesn't fit my personal taste.
The Lunar Chronicles – Marissa Meyer. I can drive a hover car through the massive logic holes.
If I Stay – Gayle Forman. I like books with drama and flawed characters. These characters are just too sweet for me.
The Wrath & The Dawn – Renée Ahdieh. I love the side characters, but I didn't love the romance.
What series have you quit this year?
