For the most part, I am really good at finishing a book series that I start . . . if I like it. But if I don't like the first one, I have no problem with stopping there. I have too many book series to read that I have no time to waste on the bad ones. These are the ones that I have no problem quitting.
1. Twisted Tales by Liz Braswell - I know every book in the series is supposed to be a retelling of a different story. But since A Whole New World was a bit boring and bland, I don't have the urge to read any more.
2. Metamorphoses by Sarah McCarry - I actually read the third book in this series and I wasn't lost because of it. But most of it was boring and I just didn't like the characters. I had no urge to read any of the others in the series.
3. The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes - I didn't hate this series. I just found it a bit unrealistic and I had no connection with any of the characters.
4. Study by Maria V. Snyder - I actually reread Poison Study so I could read the others in the series. Then I remembered why I didn't continue the series. The plot was interesting, but I actually found the characters a bit bland.
5. Once Upon A Crime Family by Tiffany Schmidt - Hold Me Like A Breath had its moments, but the main character was too whiny for me to want to read more about her.
6. Clone Chronicles by Heather Hildenbrand - A book about cloning that just made me mad. So much potential . . . wasted.
7. Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton - This book was all over the placed. There were so many unanswered questions, but I was just so confused (and a bit bored) that I have no interest in continuing the story to see if my questions ever get answered.
8. Hunter by Mercedes Lackey - This is the only book on the list that I couldn't even finish. I was 25% of the way through it and I still had no idea what was going on. I know there is supposed to be a lot of world building in first books, but this was just too much. And something about the writing style just turned me off.
9. Terrestrials by Gretchen Powell - This is the only book on this list I actually felt like throwing across the room. And I would have if not for the fact that it was on my Kindle. It was boring, there was no suspense, and then when the mystery was revealed, I was equal parts amused and furious. No way am I reading the next one in that series.
10. Dead Girl by Linda Joy Singleton - A book about a girl who has a near death experience and winds up in someone else's body. There was a lot of potential and it had its moments. But towards the end, it just got weird.
Are there any series you didn't feel like finishing? Did you agree with any on this list?
