This week's question is: Have you broken up with a series? If so which one and why?

MY ANSWER: Yes actually. I can't recall all of them, but one that comes to mind is the Abby Sinclair series by Allison Pang and the Cassie Palmer series by Karen Chance. I'm not sure how it happened exactly, but the series no longer held my interest while I was reading. For the longest time I kept reading the Cassie books even though I found myself not enjoying them as much. I finally gave up on them around the third or fourth book.


  1. Really?! I quite like the Cassie Palmer books, it's the almost 2 year wait in between that is annoying as the last book ended on a cliffhanger! Argh!

  2. I'm not familiar with this series. Sorry to hear you lost interest along the way. It happens!

    Thanks for stopping by.
    Happy Friday :D

  3. I haven't read any of the series, but I usually give up reading the series after the first book.

    Check out My FF :)

  4. Never heard of either of those series actually. It'd have to be the Inheritance Cycle series for me.

    Do drop by my FF. :)

  5. I haven't heard of any of these series. I haven't read so many series, so I can't think of anyone I've broken with.

    Happy Reading! :)

  6. I love the Cassie Palmer series, but I agree with Naomi, the wait between books really is very long!

    Thanks for stopping by my FF post earlier.

    Have a wonderful weekend Jessica :)

  7. Thanks for stopping by my blog! :D Don't know Cassie Palmer though.

  8. I haven't read your first pick, but I went and bought the first four of the Cassie Palmer series and haven't purchased anymore since then....so...not sure if I've quit it yet but it certainly isn't high up on my to-read list. I think the love interest actually strikes a wrong cord with me in that one as well. Thank you so much for stopping by my FF. Old Follower :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

  9. Have not heard of that series.Thanks for stopping by

  10. I try not to give up books, but I had to do it eventually. :)
    I haven't heard these series. There are so many!
    Here is my FF http://between-my-lines.blogspot.gr/2013/06/feature-and-follow-14-broken-up-with.html

  11. Sorry that series didn't work for you!

  12. Haven't read these but sorry it didn't keep you interested :(

    Happy Friday!

  13. The two series that come to mind are the Kay Scarpetta series by Patricia Cornwell (held out to around book 15 then called it quits) and the Anita Blake series by Laurell Hamilton.

  14. I haven't heard of either of those series, so I probably wouldn't read them anyone! :D

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Old follower!

  16. It really sucks when a series no longer holds your interest.

  17. I hope that when the last book of series comes out, you get to read the last sentence, hihi. So many hours given to an uncompleted series seems unfair :( Thanks for stopping by my FF. Old follower.

  18. You know, I think I actually broke up with the Abby Sinclair books as well. Is that the one with the talking unicorn? (How awesome would it be to have a tiny talking unicorn?). Here's what I broke up with:


  19. I think I might have given up on the Cassie Palmer series baout half way through the first book. Wasn't really my thing. Hope you have a great weekend!

  20. I haven't heard of either of these series, so it sounds like I'm not missing much. I find this such an interesting question. I have actually broken up with authors as well. Even authors who are writing stand alone novels, either I grew up or their writing got super lazy. Thanks for visiting my FFF. Old follower of course!

  21. Visiting back! Not sure I've read/heard of that series. Old follower!

  22. I haven't read either series, but I trust your taste in books, so I probably wouldn't like them either!

    Thanks for stopping by my FF Jessica!

  23. I don't remember if I ever told you, but I love your banner and layout =D It's so calming and just makes me want to go read lol.

    Thanks for stopping by mine!

  24. Haven't heard of those series. Its always good though not to waste time reading a book that doesn't capture your interest. Thanks for sharing and visiting my FF. Old follower. =]

  25. It's hard to keep up with books you don't enjoy! Great answer, Jessica!

    Old follower here!

    Thank you for stopping by my F&FF earlier.

    Happy reading and have a great weekend!

  26. I haven't heard of this but I really don't read hardly any adult books. I'm sure there's more series I've broken up with, but I can't remember them either.

  27. Some of your other commenters have talked about the wait between the Cassie books. I have to say that has been a dealbreaker for me in the past. If I have to wait too long for the next book in a series, often I've forgotten about it by the time a new one rolls around.

    Reading With My Eyes Shut

  28. I haven't read the series. I think I'd have a hard time not finishing a series. Like it would have to be atrocious for me to decide not to finish it. I haven't read a ton of series, so I had a hard time answering this week. Thanks for stopping by my FF! :D

  29. I haven't tried your Break-Up books, but I can comment on the long wait between books in a series. That usually seems to occur when an author writes more than one series.

    For example, Laurell K Hamilton not only writes the Anita Blake series (I haven't read any, but several people have written of their break-ups with Anita) but also the Meredith Gentry series. I have read all of the Merry Gentry books, and am anxious to read the next one. Hamilton has put it on hold indefinitely in order to write more Anita books. Arrgghh.

    Anyhow,thanks for hopping in. You're always welcome! And by the way, have a GREAT week!
