Oh wow! I saw your listed uglies series as /of8 and I was like O_o wth, but then I looked it up AND THERES MORE COMING!!! :D I may have to reread... it has been like 10 years. Thanks for the heads up.


message 6: by Jenny Baker (new)

Jenny Baker (jennyrbaker) Thank you Virginie and Niki!

I was shocked when I saw that there will be 8 books in the series. It's been so long since I've read them. I liked the first two, but I wasn't dying to finish the series. I'm so torn.

Niki Hawkes - The Obsessive Bookseller | 7555 comments Mod
I don't know it it will hold my attention now as well as when I was young, but I remember finishing the fourth book and clamoring for the next one (it was good), until my friend broke it to me that that's all there was going to be. I was very upset at this for years. Not anymore!!


message 8: by Jenny Baker (new)

Jenny Baker (jennyrbaker) How exciting for you! You can always skim the last book you read as a refresher. I can think of at least 20 other series that I'd rather read than this one, but I hate the idea of not finishing something that I started. :-)

Me too. :)

In Progress:

The House of Hades - The Heroes of Olympus - (3/5)


message 12: by Jenny Baker (new)

Jenny Baker (jennyrbaker) Wow, I completely forgot about my incomplete series challenge. Not only do I ditch a series, but apparently I also ditch a challenge to complete my series! LOL What's sort of sad is that I started another series a few days ago and THEN I remembered this challenge. :-)

Up-to-date:

Legendary - Caraval - (2/3)

In Progress:

The Blood of Olympus - The Heroes of Olympus - (5/5)

Jenny Baker (jennyrbaker) Completed:

The Dark Tower - by Stephen King - (8/8)

The Blood of Olympus - The Heroes of Olympus - (5/5)

Muse of Nightmares - Strange the Dreamer - (2/2)


message 14: by Jenny Baker (new)

Jenny Baker (jennyrbaker) Completed:


Firefight (Reckoners #2)
Calamity (Reckoners #3)
A Court of Frost and Starlight (ACOTAR #3.1)
In an Absent Dream (Wayward Children #4)

In Progress:

Bloody Rose (The Band #2) <-- I started it, but never finished it. Eventually, I'll get back to it.
A Storm of Swords (ASOIAF #3) <-- I feel like I should hold off on finishing this series until we have a definitive release date on book #6. Since I only read books 1 & 2, it would be easier to reread those than to have to reread all 5.

Undecided:

Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass #5) <-- Right now, I have no desire to finish this series.

Abandoned Series:

City of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments #4)
Hollow City (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children #2)
Linger (Shiver #2)
Specials (Uglies #3)

New Series:

The Final Empire (Mistborn #1)
The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicles #1)

Now let's see if I can remember to update this challenge regularly. I may need a gentle reminder!

message 16: by Jenny Baker (new)

Jenny Baker (jennyrbaker) Thanks!! I've abandoned so many series, but that's OK, because there are better ones that are waiting for me. :-)

I think by posting that I've abandoned the series, it makes it official instead of feeling undecided.


Melissa ♥ Dog/Wolf Lover ♥ Martin | 1338 comments I have never .... well not in public dnf’d a book 🤣😂

I try not to DNF a book. I don't like to force my way through a book that I'm not enjoying, but DNF'ing makes me feel like a quitter. 😃
