Would you believe me if I told you this was a post I was going to do before I found out it was a TTT topic?
A while ago, I did a Top Ten Tuesday about books I’ve decided to drop, but there have been some books that keep popping up everywhere that I’m like… maybe I could read the sequel…
I read the first one a while ago and rated it a 2 star, but this series has been everywhere. I can’t turn around without seeing fan art, tweets, anything. So now that I have a library card (!!! I’m still really proud of this) I don’t have to pay for book two…
The Bone Season series
I got two books in, was liking it… and didn’t buy book three. This is a 7 book series (don’t quote me… though I’m kind of confident about that statement) and… it wasn’t blowing my mind enough to be loyal to the series. But as I was unhauling, I saw the two books and didn’t really want to part with them.
Charlotte Holmes series
Another two star (I wasn’t really getting Jamie’s… thing for Charlotte) but again, I’ve been seeing this one around… and people are saying they get better, so though this is one of my not-so-sure picks, I HAVE A LIBRARY CARD SO IT’S ALL GOOD.
The Darkest Minds series
This one is less noble than the ones mentioned above: at first, it was because the movie was coming out, but now it’s because of Bracken’s new (is it a spin off?) series with Zu as the main character. I actually plan on buying these as well (don’t know if that’s smart or not…)
This was one I subconsciously was planning to drop until (this is going to be weird) I looked at my cat? Because I’ve read two out of three books with my cat snuggled next to me during a blackout by candlelight (this is a story I tell in both of my reviews) and the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to just knock this out.
Vampire Academy series
… Okay, here’s the thing: Colleen told me to continue because it get’s better? And then, I started to see the book everywhere?? Aaaaannnnd since I have a library card (I will never NOT be happy about this) I don’t have to pay for the sequel…. so we’ll see….
Here’s the thing: I didn’t drop this series… I just haven’t been watching. Which is strange, because I procalaim my love for this series EVERYWHERE… I’m just so nervous, I’ve been seeing so many mixed reviews… I WILL PICK IT BACK UP MARK MY WORDS.
Queen of the South
Another show that I love, but just haven’t been watching. I don’t know, nerves, laziness, ALL OF THE EXCUSES. Again, I have every intention of picking this one back up.
This is an odd one; I’m dropping the show. It hasn’t been fun since season 3? But, a sadistic part of my mind wants to pick up the book series… and since I have a library card… no consequences XD .
I actually went through my Goodreads shelf and looked at all the low rated books that I have, because they weren’t coming to my mind as quickly as I wanted them to. And then I ran out of books, so T.V. shows are the next best thing.
Have you guys read/watched any of these? Are they worth it? Let me know in the comments below!
