Top Ten Tuesday (3)

Happy Tuesday! Today I've decided to participate in Top Ten Tuesday, formerly hosted by Jamie at The Broke and the Bookish, now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl.

Today's topic is: 

Books I’ve Decided I’m No Longer Interested In Reading

Here are ten YA books I'm 99% sure I'll never read!

King's Cage (Red Queen, #3)Of Neptune (The Syrena Legacy, #3)Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass, #4)
The Archived (The Archived, #1)  The Ship Beyond Time (The Girl From Everywhere, #2)Daughter of the Siren Queen (Daughter of the Pirate King, #2)
The True Queen (The Impostor Queen, #3)So Close to You (So Close to You, #1)
Like a River Glorious (The Gold Seer Trilogy, #2)

Bonus! Here are a few more:

Witch's Pyre (Worldwalker, #3)Infinite Risk (Immortal Game, #3)
Sea Spell (Waterfire Saga, #4)Obsidian and Stars (Ivory and Bone, #2)

Don't you love how most of these are conclusion novels? I am terrible at finishing series. But usually what happens is I see reviews of the conclusion novel and I decide not to bother because 75% of the time, the conclusion to a YA series is really bad. So it's not all my fault!


  1. Ah! Seeing a few here I still really want to read! Lol! This topic was sooooo hard for me! The first time in ages I couldn't pick 10!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  2. Wow, I thought most of these had great reviews? Glad I didn't pick any up!! Hope you find some books that you enjoy!!

  3. I feel the same way on conclusion novels. If the reviews aren't great I put off reading it forever.

  4. I understand that many people have different issues with Throne of Glass series, so I can see why Queen of Shadows made this list. But I am curious though, how did The Archived end up on this list? I did enjoy reading that one, but have not had a chance to read the sequel yet.

  5. I'm actually really bad at starting series at all, so I tend to finish most of the ones I read - even if it takes me awhile. LOL I own The Archived and it's one I do hope to check it out. I like the premise!


  6. I'm not one to not finish a series but I can relate to not liking series conclusion. sometimes a series takes you in and then leaves you cold at the end so perhaps it's better not to finish.

    have a lovely day.

  7. Interesting about not wanting to finish the series. I confess that I have higher expectations about the conclusion book too and even with series I love I will hesitate to finish them.

  8. Wow, a lot of these are on my list as well! Blood Rose Rebellion was a let-down and I wasn't impressed with Like a River Glorious. I also DO NOT understand the ToG series, I've tried three books and just couldn't deal.

  9. I read the first two books plus half of the third in the Throne of Glass series before I decided the story just wasn't for me. I don't think I'll continue reading that series. I actually really enjoyed King's Cage, more than I enjoyed Glass Sword. Thanks for sharing this list.

  10. Unfortunately it is common to be burned by a series finale, it seems. There are quite a few I was really disappointed in. Sigh. I do like the Throne of Glass series though but I totally get why people would give up on it.

  11. I'm terrible at finishing series too. I think I just get too distracted by other books. I'm reading Glass Sword right now and really not liking it so I don't think I'll be in a hurry to read King's Cage either.

  12. I'm terrible at series too! I do hope to get caught up to the Throne of Glass series, but I'm with you on many of of these :)

  13. I haven't read any of these series. I do usually try to finish a series once I start but not always.

  14. I really should have quit the Throne of Glass series way before this, but somehow I keep getting pulled back in and getting burned! Now I suppose I have to finish the last book, just because I'm so close to the end :D

  15. You have a a few books up there that I loved. I am a ToG fan and will read them all. I really liked the first Syrena Legacy book, but after not being impressed by book 2, I gave up on the series. I like the Watson Island series too, and was really happy with the Gold Seer Trilogy. But I adored Pirate King and am quite excited for Siren Queen.

  16. Some of these I totally understand but The Archived and Daughter of the Siren Queen? Noooo Alyssa! XD

  17. Haha, I do agree with some of these books :D But some others you MUST READ. <3 Like A River Glorious :D That book is so good. Sigh. You should finish that series. <3 And hahaha.. Of Neptune. Yeah. I'm never finishing that trilogy. Love triangle in the third book? o.O Not cool. Ugh. Lovely list Alyssa. <3

  18. I'm so bad at finishing series - the last ones as well as the ones in between sometimes. Mostly I think it's because I really like a first one, and I'm worried the next one won't live up. For instance, I never finished the Divergent series because I heard how the series ended and I just didn't need that in my life. I was good with just the first one. I have been curious about Victoria Aveyard's series, though. I want to try it eventually.


I love comments! I will always try and reply to your comments, as well as leave some comment love on your blog! :)

Also, this an award and tag free blog. While I am flattered that you would think of me, I really do not have the time to follow up. Thank you!
