Top Ten Tuesday 9/8/15

Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is Series I Have Yet To Finish. This shouldn't be too hard because I rarely finish series. Well, I've finished a few. But mostly I haven't. Here we go.

  1. The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice - Shocking, I know. But after I finished Prince Lestat, I looked at the list and realized I haven't read a couple of the books in the series. El gasp!

  2. Miss Peregrine's by Ransom Riggs - I've read the first two books and the third one comes out this year, so I'm caught up but not for long.

  3. Commissario Brunetti series by Donna Leon - My library doesn't have them all, so I have to gather them from various places. But they're so good!

  4. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling - I only have one book left. I always do this. My friend April gets so frustrated with me because I put off reading the last book in a series. It drove her nuts when I did it with Twilight. I guess I just don't want it to be over?

  5. Stephanie Plum by Janet Evanovich - Here's another series that I am currently caught up on, but there is at least one more coming soon.

  6. Charley Davidson by Darynda Jones - I used to really love this series, but the last one I read felt phoned in and I didn't even finish the next one. I'll have to get recommendations on whether or not to keep going.

  7. The Austen Project by various authors - This is a set of books written by popular authors updating Jane Austen's books for the twenty-first century. It's a fun series. I am looking forward to the Pride and Prejudice one.

  8. The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater - This is a Young Adult novel about a girl with strange relatives who gets mixed up with a bunch of prep school boys who are looking for the grave of a Gaelic king. In Virginia. Yeah. Sounds weird, but it's a good series. But I haven't read the third one.

  9. Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger - This is a steampunk fantasy series. The main character has no soul, which means that when she touches supernatural beings, they lose their supernatural powers. She is sassy and sarcastic and I love her, but the plots sometimes devolve into soap opera-worthy chaos.

  10. The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher - This is kind of an urban fantasy/mystery hybrid. The main character is a private detective and wizard who helps the Chicago police department when it's cases run up against the supernatural. I've only read the first one, but I have at least 5 more on my Kindle.

So that's 10 series I haven't finished. I left out the ones that I never plan to finish. So I intend to maybe read the others in these series. If I find the time. You know how it is.

What series do you intend to finish one day?
