This week's question is: Have you broken up with a series? If so, which one and why?


The only series that comes to mind is the Kitty Norville series by Carrie Vaughn that I quit reading with the 6th book - it's now to book 10, I believe. This is a good series filled with action and new stories, but what made me stop with this one was the love interest. For some reason, I never got behind Kitty's significant other and when they became more and more serious, it was just hard for me to continue with the story because she changed as a character and I found him a little boring.


If you are a new follower, I prefer being followed by Bloglovin, email, and twitter. Thank you!

  4. I think my sister is in the middle of this series, Kitty sounds familiar. I sort of went to town listing all the series I have quit. Here's to the weekend where we're both going to snap out of our medical drama and get a chance to play. (gotta dream) Here's my FF.

    It's awful when a series gets boring. The worst!! I too have read 6 books or more into a series and then just had to quit. I'll wiki what happens in the last book of these series.

    I know exactly what you mean! I haven't quite given up on this one. A little behind on it though by 2 books. Hoping that it ends soon just so I don't have to quit it though...

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  13. I never read that series. Mine are the Anita Blake and Sookie Stackhouse series. I just couldn't stand them anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I completely forgot to mention Anita Blake because I gave up on that one a long time ago. I agree it is a series break-up for me as well. Sookie I haven't read the last 2 books, but I think I will finish the series out once the last one is released just to see how it's concluded.

  20. I usually will stick it out because I've become invested in a character or two. There are just some times when that doesn't work out. Thank you so much for stopping by :D 'See' you tomorrow!

  23. I wonder how she is enjoying it. Kitty is a good character, I just didn't particularly care for the love there. Hope you get to have a good weekend with your sidekicks.

  25. I've haven't read this series but I've certainly heard good things about it. I'd been contemplating reading this, then I saw the number of books in the series till date and backed away. I'm trying to avoid drawn out series unless they are recommended by everyone I know.

    Do drop by my FF. :) Old follower.

  27. I feel the same way about the really large series. I want to make sure to read the reviews and see if they are well-liked all the way through to the newest one before investing my time in them. Thank you so much for stopping by!

  28. I haven't heard of this series, but I know what you mean I have done the same thing. I hate to leave a series incomplete, but if I can't get into it then I have no choice.

  29. Jaclyn I'm not familiar with the series you mentioned above but I get your point, because I was starting to feel that way with the Sookie Stackhouse series, a good story always must come to an end, and sometimes I feel that when it's up to book 10 it's just dragging out the inevitable.
