Super Six Series I Need to Catch Up On!
It happens to all of us. You read a book and then have to wait a year for the next in the series to come out. Then the book is finally published, but something keeps you from picking it up for one reason or another. I keep preordering them and they come in the mail, but I’ve yet to sit down and read all of these. This is my list of series that I’ve fallen behind on, even though I’ve loved these series in the past.
I was seriously in love with this series for the first books. Merit was sassy, unsure, and just trying to find her way as a new vampire and her place in Cadogan house. But then my favorite character was taken out of the books and I was sad, outraged, and then just plain irritated. I know he’s back (because I did look at the back of one of my preordered books) and the author did it for a reason, but I’ve yet to get back in to these books. Books five through nine have now piled up.
I was pretty excited when I read through books one through eight in a row, but having to wait for the rest was killer. Now the limiting factor has been lugging these thick hardcovers in my bag on the train with me.
These crime mysteries featuring a dog loving defense attorney are among my favorite books, but I’ve always had other books that I had promised to read and review. I just need to find the time to catch back up with Andy and the gang…
Book eleven wasn’t that great, but I’ve gone this far with the series so I just need to see it through to the end–even though the end has been spoiled thanks to someone who leaked it on the internet. I don’t have very high expectations, but I still want to finish this up.
The Queen Betsy Undead series is super fun and has taken a turn for the more serious and dark in later books, but I’ve just been a bit busy to keep up. Since book twelve comes out this Tuesday, I really need to catch up with these when I’m in the mood for some excellent snark.
I’ve been a faithful reader of Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta Medical Examiner series since the mid-2000’s. Book 21 is due out in November, but I’ve yet to read book 18 since it’s still in my Grandmother’s hands. She’s had it for two years and sure it’s 500 pages or so, but I’m thinking she’s never going to read it so I can catch up.
What series have you fallen behind on and what are the reasons? Fallen out of love with the characters? Didn’t like the direction the story was moving? Just don’t have the time to catch back up since your to be read pile is a mile high like mine?
