Thank you Jane, I hardly leave a series alone when I started, even though I am not seriously hooked there is always something keeping me going on. There is an author I left behind and a book I gave my weeks to finish without quiting, it was The Magicians and I am not sure if I want to give him a second chance :) but I will try this instead, go back to whatever I read and find an author I only read once and gave another chance for a second book... Thank you for the idea...
