Q: Have you broken up with a series? If so which one and why?
It's no secret - I broke up with the Everneath series, after Everneath by Brodi Ashton. I didn't like Everneath at all. The plot, the pacing, the romance... blah blah blah!
The Carrier series, starting and stopping with Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon... yeah NO. That book was so cliche and predictable.
The Tiger Saga, starting and stopping with Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck. As an Indian person, I wanted to like this book, but I did NOT take this book very well. Also? It was very boring in my opinion. And Kelsey is a whiny, weak, childish protagonist. And I hate love triangles.
I won't torture myself further with more examples. Nor will I be reading the rest of those series of those books!
All three of these surprised me. I haven't read any of them yet.. but I always read about people loving them!ReplyDelete
Angela's Anxious Life
Yeah, and that's the problem with disliking books that everyone else loves...Delete
Yeah I didn't go far with Everneath either. I wasn't really counting those myself, the ones where I read 1 book and then call it quits.ReplyDelete
Here's my Follow Friday
Have a GREAT weekend!

Meh. It happens, Jessica! :)Delete
Confession: I stopped reading the book within the first 20 pages. My creative writing teacher always tells me to read the first 100 pages before making a verdict, but I could not stomach that book. It was dry and not very exciting to read.ReplyDelete
NICE. I understand what you mean! Totally agree.Delete

Never heard of the Carrier series and no comment on Everneath. But the Tiger Saga?? I've heard such good things about the rest of the books. I myself have read only the Tiger's Curse and the only reason you'd find me picking up the Tiger's Quest would be because Kishan is in it. I can't stand Kelsey. She really was tooo whiny.ReplyDelete
All she needs is a good tight slap really! :D
Do drop by my FF. Old follower.
I reallyyyyy hated Kelsey. That's all I can say to you! :\Delete
I was going to read everneath but now I might hold off on it. Thanks for sharing your book breakups.ReplyDelete
here is My FF
Whatever you decide, I hope it works out!Delete
Have not read those series, guess now I never will:) Old follower.ReplyDelete
Just make the choices that are best for you! :)Delete
I haven't read Everneath yet, but Tiger's curse I loved, I have a thing for tigers I guess, I don't really remember Kelsey's character much I guess, I may have to reread it.ReplyDelete
LOL. Well, it's all about perspective, right? ^_^Delete
Everneath was OK, but I'm not sure if I liked it enough to read the others. I tend to be picky with series!ReplyDelete
