Top 5 Series I’m Ashamed I haven’t read yet!

Screen Shot 2015-10-01 at 11.02.16 PM

I have been super behind my series TBR ever since I started writing my thesis around June this year. So that’s been a good three months now and things are actually not getting better ‘coz I just got my schedule for my defense (read: more no-time-to-read excuses). Anyway, I just realized that I have so many series I wanted to read, but I never seem to get past book one! 😦 I know, something is wrong with me.

So with this post, I wanted to share with you guys the series I really wanna get into – some I have read the first books, but never continued on with the rest; some I totally never started at all. I guess putting them here in my blog would pressure me to get into them sooner rather than later 🙂

1. The Mara Dyer Trilogy


I have read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and I loved it! It’s thrilling and confusing and super mysterious and it’s just perfect! I think I gave a 4 point something in Goodreads.I have been super intrigued with Noah and Mara’s “condition” and I finished the book right away! 🙂 I was never a fast reader, but this one just a page turner it ended too soon. That is why I don’t understand myself for not picking the second book as soon as I finished the first one. I mean. What the hell was wrong with me, right? I have it in my bookshelf. I freakin’ own it and until now, only-god-knows-how-many-months later, The Evolution of Mara Dyer still sits in my shelf pristinely. Unread.

2. The Lunar Chronicles


I have been hearing really good stuff about this series. In fact, I have been hearing NOTHING BUT good stuff. Not a single thumbs down. Ever. And that is why I bought Cinder and Scarlet right away. And guess what I did with both? Yup. Stored in my shelf. Never read. Never opened. 😦 But I really really really wanna read this series already, okay? I mean. Ugh. This frustration is real! 😦 I want to get into it now but I just can’t and I don’t know why. Ugh. I don’t understand either.

3. The Mortal Instruments Series 


Compared to the other series mentioned here, I know the reason why I have not picked a single book from the Mortal Instruments. I am intimidated by this series. Yes. Intimidated with a capital I. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s one of the best YA urban fantasies out there, but I don’t know if I’d really be able to get into it as much as the rest of you guys do. I might love it, I might not, and I’m scared. But that doesn’t mean I don’t wanna get into it. I badly wanna start this as well! It’s just that they’re too many and the others are too thick and too intimidating and ugh. (I’ve read the Infernal Devices already though and they’re just amazing. Like. Will Herondale changed my life forever).

4. Throne of Glass Series


Throne of Glass is probably one of the most bad-ass novels I have read this year. I loved it – I loved Celaena, I loved Chaol, and I am totally totally head over heels over Dorian. I loved it, and I just can’t express how much I appreciated each and every page in Throne of Glass. It was awesome. 🙂 I don’t understand, though, why I did not jump into the Crown of Midnight right away! Ugh. It’s in my shelf, actually, and all I need to do is pull it out and read it. But I have not. 😦 And, my god, I just don’t understand myself. #feelthefrustration

5. Percy Jackson Series


I have not been one of those kids that grew up reading about Percy. I was more of a Narnia person, so I really had no idea who Percy was until just recently – or when the movie came out. (I’m sorry! No idea who he was for the longest time and I know that sucks). So anyway, I’m glad, though, that I have not been the only one. I keep seeing booktubers and book bloggers that are actually like myself and are starting with the series as late as I do. Because guess what, better late than never read right? 🙂 I finished the Lightning Thief already and I loved it! ❤ I know I’m gonna be cotinuing on with the series on November, when things are lighter academic burden-wise 🙂

So that’s it, guys! I would love to hear what your unread series are in the comments section below 🙂 I would love recommendations of your favourite series as well! 🙂

Happy reading always! 🙂

  1. I totally understand as I too am usually intimidated to start a new series as it might not be for me but since I have read book 1 I feel like I need to read the rest. I also haven’t read the Mortal Instruments series yet either! Would you like to do a buddy read sometime?

    1. Sounds fun to me! I have been buddy reading with friends, and although I’m not a very fast reader, I am immensely enjoying buddy reads! 🙂


  2. I wish I had read Percy Jackson as a 11 years old, but as you, I didn’t know they existed until Iast year!! It was a really quick, action packed read, and I liked it a lot, but I’m sure my teenage self would have LOVED IT.


    1. Glad to know I’m not the only one, Mel! 🙂 I have read the first book only, but I’m sure I’ll be getting into the rest of the series before the year ends! 🙂
