Top Ten Tuesday: 10 finished series I have yet to finish


1. The In Death Series by J.D. Robb (4-5 left, scattered throughout)

There are over 40 books in this series. So..I think I’m pretty good only missing a handful. The first book was released in 1995 and its STILL going. So I know technically its not a *finished* series, but geeeeeeeze. 40 bloody books. I think it counts!
2. The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series by J.R. Ward (last few)

These are just excellent books. Twilight isn’t even worthy to shine their covers .
3. The Ringworld Series by Larry Niven (Only read the 1st book)

Ruined me for Discworld, I think…
4. The Space Trilogy by Arthur C. Clarke (last one)

Not holding out hope…2nd wasn’t that great.
5. The Discworld Series by Terry Pratchett (Lets just say…a lot left)

Just one of those series every self-respecting scifi/fantasy lover has to read..right?
6. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Series by Douglas Adams (Read the first two.)

Who doesn’t love this? I mean, really!
7. The Xanth Series by Piers Anthony (4-5 left, scattered throughout)

I will get this whole collection to share with Miss L when she’s older.
8. The Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series by Laurell K. Hamilton

I’ll be honest, after Obsidian Butterfly it went downhill so quick I probably won’t ever finish the series.
9. The Dark Tower series by Stephen King. “The Gunslinger” introduced me to the second Stephen King book I’ve ever liked, so eventually I think I will finish this series. It just won’t be any time soon.

10. The Perseid Collapse series by Steven Konkoly (1 book left)

This prompt came from Broke and Bookish and I’d like to thank them for giving out some great ideas for so many Tuesdays!

  1. Hitchhiker’s is on my list but didn’t make the cut to top ten. Ring world and Discworld are both on my TBR but Discworld is daunting. Why do you say Ringworld ruins you for DW?

    1. Because I tried to read Discworld Book 1 immediately after reading Ringworld Book 1… and Discworld paled in comparision. Whereas Ringworld was to the point, funny, and unique, Discworld read like a tongue-in-cheek fantasy that I’d read a better version of before (when I read the Xanth novels).

      1. Ahhhh good to know! See I’ve met loads of people who have read Discworld but not nearly as many who have read Ringworld and that one is honestly the series that interests me more!

        1. I still have book one of Discworld floating around here. I figure I’ll pick it up eventually. Right now, though, my TBR includes two very cool books (or so I hope!). The Secrets of Blood and Bone by Rebecca Alexander and… *dances* Sleeping Giants by Sylvian Neuval!

            1. Yep, I got an e-version via Netgalley! I’m forcing myself to finish The Secrets of Blood and Bone before I start reading it (not that its hard, tSoBaB really is excellent), and I can’t WAIT!

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog! I haven’t read any of these.. Yet. I have never really got into sci-fi or fantasy as much as other genres, but some of these sound interesting 🙂

  3. Yes, Hitchhikers is worth completing. Mostly Harmless (the 5th book) was written sometime after the others, and as such is somewhat more mature (I think). My first edition HHGTTG has been read that often that it’s in need of some TLC ! The Discworld books standalone quite well, although read in order things are a little easier to visualise. If you’ve not read it, make “Snuff” the next one you read, horrible title, but so beautifully written !
