Top 5 Tuesday: Series I Need to Finish (ft. Series I Have One Book Left to Read)

This week I decided to switch back over and participate in Top 5 Tuesday, originally hosted by BionicBookworm, now hosted by MeeghanReads!

This week's theme is: Unfinished Series

For this week's topic, I've opted to share some series that I only have one book left in the series to finish, but just haven't gotten around to it yet for one reason or another. This feels like a major call out for my weird penchant for not finishing series in any sort of timely manner, but it's okay–maybe I need that! 🤣And I think I have the full series on my shelves for most of these as well, so... there's very little excuse for me! Maybe one of these days I'll make a post featuring all the series I've started and need to finish, but it might be a bit long...

 I'm only going to include series that are fully published and have all the books readily available to read. This narrowed it down quite a bit since I'm reading so many ongoing series, but it was still hard to choose only five! Now, let's see what series I'm procrastinating on.

The Prince of Nothing series by R. Scott Bakker
The Darkness That Comes Before (The Prince of Nothing, #1)The Warrior Prophet (The Prince of Nothing, #2)The Thousandfold Thought (The Prince of Nothing, #3)
I don't actually feel too bad about this one because I just read the second book last wee and it would really be wisest of me to just jump right into the third book soon before I forget what happened in the second book... but is it likely I will do that? It is not. Probably. 

The Rampart Trilogy by M.R. Carey
The Book of Koli (Rampart Trilogy #1)The Trials of Koli (Rampart Trilogy #2)The Fall of Koli (Rampart Trilogy #3)
I don't know why I haven't read the third book yet?? I have enjoyed this series and have no problem continuing... but apparently I do? I have a copy of the third book on my shelves, but for some reason I just haven't grabbed it. Hopefully I will this year! (Also, I never realized how cool these covers look altogether with the plants sort of slowly overtaking the text. Very neat!)

The Legacy Trilogy by Matthew Ward
Legacy of Ash (Legacy Trilogy, #1)Legacy of Steel (The Legacy Trilogy, #2)Legacy of Light (The Legacy Trilogy, #3)
I know the reason that I haven't picked up this series' finale and it's because it's such a big book. Like not only is it a chunky book, it's also just... big. And I struggle holding big books sometimes, haha. There is really no good excuse, I think I've just been too intimidated to pick it up because there is so much going on in this series and I'm worried I won't remember everything I need to, but I will get to this one.

The Queen of Hearts Saga by Colleen Oakes
Queen of Hearts (Queen of Hearts Saga, #1)Blood of Wonderland (Queen of Hearts Saga, #2)War of the Cards (Queen of Hearts Saga, #3)
I've loved this series! I have no idea why I haven't continued it, but I think it may partially just be because: 1) I don't want to finish it; 2) I've really enjoyed the first two books and I'm worried the next one won't fulfill my expectations. What a non-problem, right?

Warrior Bards by Juliet Marillier
The Harp of Kings (Warrior Bards, #1)A Dance with Fate (Warrior Bards, #2)A Song of Flight (Warrior Bards, #3)
I actually started the third book a month or so ago, but got distracted by other books and never finished... so, yeah. I do really want to finish this series, though, because I've really enjoyed it!

and last but not least, a series I'm not sure if I'll finish so I figured I'd include it as a bonus...
Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat
Captive Prince (Captive Prince #1)Prince's Gambit (Captive Prince, #2)Kings Rising (Captive Prince, #3)
I actually don't know if I'll ever finish this series... I feel like I don't really care about it, but at the same time I hear anything people rave about it that I'm curious to see the ending. So we'll see. 

Have you read any of these books/series? What are some book series you want/need to finish?


  1. I haven't read any of these, but I know what you mean about not finishing series! I start so many and never finish them.

  2. Great Topic. I haven't read any of these. Here is my post-https://paigesofbook.wordpress.com/2022/02/15/top-ten-tuesday-books-i-loved-that-are-too-good-to-review/.

  3. Series are tough! There are so many and who can get to them all ha ha? I hear great things about Marillier. I feel like I started one of her books once... it's been a while.

  4. I am afraid to find out how many series I still need to finish, lol. At least you've only got the last one to go in each series😁

  5. I'm hoping to read Legacy of Ash soon. Happy reading. My TTT https://readwithstefani.com/books-too-good-to-review-properly/
