Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

This week's topic is: Ten Finished Series I Have YET to Finish

*in no particular order

**Oh the tears I weep as I write this post! Also limiting this to series I need to FINISH, and not start ones that are finished! ;)

1. THE WARRIOR by Victoria Scott--sigh...I still need to read this one to finish the trilogy! Just 1 book! Maybe around New Years I'll start a "finish the series" challenge!
2. HUNGRY LIKE THE WOLF by Christine Warren--the Others series is 15 books long and I'm about halfway through it! I need to pick up book 8 and carry on through!
3. SPELLS by Aprilynne Pike--I only just started this series...and sadly that was like 2 years ago...crap...3 years ago! EEP!

4. INFINITYGLASS by Myra McEntire--another trilogy I still need to finish!! Really liked the first two, but have yet to read this one!
5. FULL MOON by Jordan Deen--this was a rather fun trilogy, and yet, I still need to read the last book! For the most part, I need to read the last book to all these unfinished series!
6. DEMON'S FURY by Jocelynn Drake--this is actually only part 1 to the final book in Jocelynn's Asylum tales! Though it will all be pushed into 1 novel format soon. Maybe by then I'll have these read!

7. DARKNESS FALLS by Keri Arthur--this one kills me! I need to read this one asap because it will complete the series!! And then I can just focus on her current and upcoming series!! I can't have 3 series going on with an author! I mean, I just might, but still! ;)
8. LOW MIDNIGHT by Carrie Vaughn--we finally get Cormac's book and I still haven't read it! I need to read this one and then the final book to finally complete this series!
9. CURSED MOON by Jaye Wells--I somehow forgot to mark this on Goodreads, yet had the final book marked! That's so wrong! Yes, this is another trilogy I am way behind on!

10. THE MADNESS UNDERNEATH by Maureen Johnson--I deliberately waited to read this one until I had The Shadow Cabinet in my hands and it still remains unread. Though I wonder if I am "saved" with this, because Goodreads has an Untitled book 4 for the series that I thought was a trilogy. But as I've learned, Goodreads can be wrong! *Gasp*

BONUS PICKS...because I have 3 more that I can resist adding and thankfully this happened before November, when another series finale releases and I'm way behind on that series too! Else, I would've had to shown that too! ;)


11. UNCHANGED by Jessica Brody--this series is awesome! And here I have the finale sitting on my TBR pile...but it is in my immediate TBR pile!
12. END OF DAYS by Susan Ee--I loved the first two books and this is one I soooo wanted to read so badly! And yet, it's unread! But again, it's in my immediate TBR pile! So hopefully soon...ish!
13. UNLEASHED by Sophie Jordan--a duology! I have a DUOLOGY unfinished! That's more wrong on my part! There are just too many books and not enough time for them all! Hopefully, again, I say this a lot, I can read it soon...ish! ;)


  1. That is quite a lot of series! Most of the ones I need to finish haven't been published yet. The only one here that I've read is the Penryn and the End of Days series. Great list!

    Christina @ Books & Prejudice

  2. I really liked The Isle of the Lost -- hope you're enjoying it. Series? I have soooo many left to finish. LOL.

  3. Shoot, I need to finish the Aprilynne Pike and Myra McEntyre series, too! I forgot about those! I'm so bad at finishing things. Great list, good luck getting to them!

    Michelle @ Michelle's Minions

    My TTT

  4. The Hourglass series didn't make my top ten this week, but it is a series I need to finish. I've only read the first book, but I really REALLY enjoyed it! Good luck!

    My TTT!

  5. An ax. That seems like a rather large item to be carrying in a pocket. I'm intrigued by your tease.

  6. I don't carry an ax. :-) Funny how you mention series and it brings to mind all the ones we need to finish. lol
    sherry @ fundinmental My TT

  7. I actually haven't read any of these series yet! Oops! Most of them are on my TBR list, so maybe I'll get to them soon! I hope you finish some of these series soon!

    Lizzie @ Big Books and Grande Lattes

  8. You should totally binge read the Wings series! It is super fun paranormal series!

  9. Great list, you have a lot of wonderful series that you need to finish. A lot of these are series that I still haven't even started yet, but really want to. I read Unleashed and HATED it. It just made all of Uninvited seem pointless. I wouldn't recommend that one, if I am completely honest.

  10. That must be a very small ax or a very large pocket! Your Teaser made me curious about this book.
    My Tuesday post features Shadow of the Hawk.

  11. I didn´t know that Sophies Jordan´s Uninvited was a duology...I also ned to read Unleashed.

    Here is My Top 10 Tuesday

  12. I haven't read any of these series yet. But I've heard of the few and they sound great!
    Check out My TTT

  13. I have not read any of these yet lol. So many books, so little time. My TTT

  14. The only one of these I've read is End of Days and that one wasn't as great as I expected it to be... I still hope you get to read it soon though! :D

    Here are my Top Ten!

  15. What a fun teaser! The Isle of the Lost is on my wishlist.

    I didn't realize Vaughn had completed her series. I love Kitty Norville series. You list a few I want to start, but haven't yet. There's a lot of those out there, I'm afraid.

  16. Great teaser. I really don't want to think about series that I haven't finished yet. I just started three new series this summer. Of course, I also finished a couple this summer too. Happy reading!

  17. Oh, a "finish the series" challenge would be so much fun! I bought Univited, but I haven't even read it yet. I want to start the Kitty Norville series, but I just haven't gotten to it yet. You're very right, there's just too many books. Great teaser! Thanks for visiting my blog!

  18. I am actually not too familiar with these series, but mostly just the authors themselves, which is funny
    Hope these all get read!

  19. I still need to get started on the Angelfall trilogy! So many books, so little time!

    Also, love your teaser! Not sure how I would fit an ax in my pocket :D The Isle of the Lost sounds really interesting!

    Thanks for stopping by my post earlier :)

  20. Okay, I guess you're no better than I am - you just have different series you need to finish! :-)

    Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

  21. I also need to read End of Days, but I'm in no rush to. It's a great series though, so I hope it's a good finish! :)

    Rachel @ A Perfection Called Books

  22. Oh! You NEED to get to the Pike and the McEntire!!

    Thanks for visiting us at Reading Lark!

  23. I just recently read End of Days, so sad to say goodbye to Rafe and Penryn!

  24. I haven't read any of the series and many were new to me, so thanks for sharing them and visiting me!

  25. I love your teaser, Jessica, and it made me want to read the whole story :)

    Lexxie @ (un)Conventional Bookviews

  26. I still need to read Unleashed too! It is so hard to keep up with series sometimes.

  27. *raises hand* I do not carry an ax in my pocket. Hehe
