Series Books Progress

Remember when I wrote that discussion about the series book vs. the standalone novel? Well, this page proves WHY I prefer the contemporary novel — once you read it, you’re DONE!

Alas, here’s my progress on series books I’m currently reading.

* books to read that I own, either in book or ARC format.

(note: italicized titles denote books that have yet to be released — therefore, a “completed” means I’m caught up in the series.)

A Note on Other Series Books

Other random series books I’m not listing here (at least, not right now), but have started include:

The Holes series by Louis Sachar, the Ring series by Koji Suzuki, The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo, the Healer series by Maria V. Snyder, the Cold Fury series by T. M. Goeglein, the Scaredy Squirrel series by Melanie Watt, the Blood of Eden series by Julie Kagawa, the Angel Eyes trilogy by Shannon Dittemore, the Immortals After Dark series by Kresley Cole, the Vampire Diaries series by L. J. Smith, the Giver series by Lois Lowry, the Swoon series by Nina Malkin, the Darkest Powers series by Kelley Armstrong, the Tempest series by Julie Cross, the Joanne Kilbourne series by Gail Bowen, the Joe Ledger series by Jonathan Maberry, the Twilight graphic novels series by Stephenie Meyer and Young Kim, the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning, the Chocolat series by Joanne Harris, the Jasper Dent series by Barry Lyga, and the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer.

These are all series books that I’ve either:

  1. Read and finished, but don’t intend on reviewing (at least not in the near future),
  2. Started and disliked, therefore have no intention of finishing, or
  3. Have started to read, but feel no pressure to continue reading the series at this time.

I may go ahead and keep reading these series at some point, but for now, they’re not my main focal point.
