Abandoned

I've decided not to track my abandoned series anymore. The list was getting long and it's not something I want to be proud of. ;)

Tosh Great lists. Looking at your abandoned list makes me feel a little better about my own. Good luck completing your series!

Thank you! I'm looking forward to seeing your list - maybe we can try to tackle some books together. :)

I don't see any common incompleted series except Malazan and I'm quite a bit behind you.

Too bad, but I'm sure that will change as both of us start new series. :)

Jenna Kathleen (jennakathleen) | 4424 comments Mod
Updated Malazan and hopefully I'll finish/bring up to date two or three series this month with The Guns of Empire, Chains of the Heretic, The Rose and the Thorn and The Death of Dulgath. Might be too ambitious though.


message 14: by Jenna, I'd be free if not for Temper & Edgewalker (new)

Jenna Kathleen (jennakathleen) | 4424 comments Mod
Updated Riyria Chronicles and only have one left until the series is up to date.

Riyria Chronicles moved to up to date. Wow - they were just fantastic.

Chris  (haughtc) | 1628 comments Are you going to read Age of Myth in the near future?

I'm going to try to finish up a couple more series and some of the scheduled buddy reads, but I hope to get to it pretty soon.

Jenna Kathleen (jennakathleen) | 4424 comments Mod
Finished up the Bloodsounder's Arc and I must say the third book really elevated the whole series. What was great in book one and two became epic in book three.

Added books 3 and 4 of Codex Alera to *almost* finish this series.

Book 3 really is an improvement on the first two. If you have time, you should try it. The first half is much like the first two books, but half-way through, suddenly Tavi's character development vastly improves.

Scott  Hitchcock (lostinthewarrenofchaos) | 8082 comments Mod
That's good to hear. Tavi was a bit too snively for me.


message 32: by Bill (new)

Bill | 2130 comments Yeah that series hits another level with book 3.

I do remember you telling me that before which is the main reason I didn't give up on the series.

Added Codex Alera to my finished series. :) This challenge is such a great motivator!

Jenna Kathleen (jennakathleen) | 4424 comments Mod
Decided to jump on the bandwagon of doing a progress update - good idea to whoever started it (Niki, I think?).

Monthly Totals:

Finished series: 1 (kind of)
The Witcher - Read The Lady of the Lake and it's the last in the series, but I didn't read the others yet....so this doesn't really count

Brought up to date: 3 (all first in a series that the second book hasn't been published yet)
The Bear and the Nightingale
The Forgotten Heirs Trilogy
Legends of the First Empire

Series progressed: 1
Malazan

New series started: 6
The Bear and the Nightingale
Sunsurge Quartet
The Witcher
The Forgotten Heirs Trilogy
Legends of the First Empire
The Crusaders (Piercing the Veil)

Abandoned: 2
Sunsurge Quartet
The Crusaders (Piercing the Veil)

Kind of disappointing when I look at the stats, but I did read a couple good books this month so I don't mind the list being like this.

Bill | 2130 comments What made you start The Witcher series with the last book?

I got a copy from Netgalley and didn't realize it was the last one...


message 38: by Bill (last edited Feb 27, 2017 07:46PM) (new)

Bill | 2130 comments Ah that makes sense. Hope it was good. I'm just about to finish book 4.


message 39: by Angela, I'm Silverfox lost (new)

Angela | 3517 comments Mod
It was Niki. I think it's nice to see how everyone is going. You are doing great Jenna. Seriously I only moved forward in one series this month.


message 40: by Jenna, I'd be free if not for Temper & Edgewalker (new)

Jenna Kathleen (jennakathleen) | 4424 comments Mod
So I'm pulling a Chris move and putting Malazan on pause after book 9. I love the series and want to give the final book the attention it deserves.

Luckily you changed yours before Scott decided to beat you to it. Now it looks like I go all Buffalo Bill in front of the mirror every night picturing myself as Cersei

You need to finish The Crippled God

As good as DHG, MOI and TBH and then throw in that it's not just a book climax but the series one as well. So epic.
