Top 5 Tuesday: Series I Need to Finish


Today I've chosen to participate in Top 5 Tuesday, originally hosted by BionicBookworm, now hosted by MeeghanReads

This week's theme is: Series I Need to Finish

So I started putting this list together and realized that I have finished almost none of the series I put on this list year. Big fail for me, haha. Fortunately for all of us, I am apparently not even close to being a completist and read a lot of series and have plenty of other unfinished series to feature on this list for this year, so let's check them out! I would also like to appreciate how cohesive each series is with their covers, they really did a great job with all of them. If you want to see what series I've also failed to finish from last year, you can check out last year's post here

Chronicles of the Bitch Queen by K.S. Villoso
I read the first two around their respective publication dates, but when the third book arrived at my door apparently something in my brain said, "wow, that's huge, better procrastinate on that," and I've yet to pick it up. I really want to finish this trilogy, though, so I would love to get to it this year. 

Prince of Nothing series by R. Scott Bakker
I'm including this one on this year's list even though I also had it on last year's because I actually really want to finish this series. I would say this is probably one of my highest priorities to finish, so let's see if I can actually do it. 

The Divide by J.S. Dewes
I enjoyed The Last Watch so much that I'm almost legitimately mad at myself for not reading the sequel yet. I literally just finished an ARC of Dewes' upcoming March release, Rubicon, and I still haven't finished the previous duology that I supposedly really love. I will get to it this year. 

Kingdom of Grit by Tyler Whitesides
I finally got around to re-reading the first book in this trilogy last year via audiobook and it was so much fun! I forgot how fun this series was and now I'm really keen to finally get around to finishing it. 

Teixcalaan series by Arkady Martine
I think I've been hesitant to pick up the sequel to A Memory Called Empire because I already feel a little fuzzy on the detail of this space opera duology, and I feel like I'd miss out on a lot if I'm not aware of all the complexities present in the world... so hopefully I can gather the courage to read it this year. Maybe. 

Have you read any of these series (or started them?) What series are you hoping to finish? Let me know!


  1. I hope you enjoy all of them!

  5. I haven't read any of these, but there are lots of series I need to finish!

  6. I hope you get the chance to finish all of these series soon.

  7. I also did the same topic this week for the Top Ten Tuesday freebie, I have way too many series I need to finish.

    1. I feel like it's a popular topic because we all fall behind on finishing series so much, haha! :')

  8. The Martine series I'm super curious about, especially since I've been reading more SF lately after something of a hiatus!

  9. The only one of these I've read is The Divide, and I loved it. I'm terrible with keeping track of what series I need to read and finish, lol. Good luck!
