Top Ten Tuesday:Passing Fancy

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week she asks us to share lists on the following:

 April 10: Books I Loved but Will Never Re-Read

There are several series that I am working on rereading and a few more that I plan to re-read in the future.  Then there are some series that I truly enjoyed but don’t need to revisit.

Ten series I enjoyed but don’t want to re-read

  1. Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side (Jessica, #1) This was a fun YA paranormal series that never really took off.  It ended after two and a half books.  Thought it was not as well-known I enjoyed it but not enough to ever re-read.
  2. Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse, #1) I loved this series when it first came out and desperately wished that I had stopped reading around book nine or ten.  If I had I probably would have wanted to reread this series but with the way it ended, I simply can’t revisit this world or ever read one of Ms. Harris’s books ever again.
  3. Happy Hour at Casa Dracula (Casa Dracula, #1) This was a lesser known quartet of books that took me forever to start but once I did I was super impressed by how good it was.  Not enough to reread though.
  4. Fated (Dark Protectors, #1) This was a hot urban fantasy/sci-fi/paranormal series that I zipped through.  I’ve tried other series written by this author but never found one that I liked as well as this series.  completely recommend to others but won’t be re-reading.
  5. I'm the Vampire, That's Why (Broken Heart #1) This series kind of fizzled out for me and I never ended up finishing it.  The first few books were great though, but I don’t think I’ll be rereading them in an effort to finish the series.
  6. Jacob (Nightwalkers, #1) Another great urban fantasy/paranormal romance world that I loved.  Haven’t given her other series a try yet and I don’t think I ever will.  Nor will I be rereading this series.
  7. Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs (Jane Jameson, #1) This series is freaking hilarious.  I used to love her work and then I kept getting turned down for her ARCs and never seemed to make time to pick them up and read them after release.  Finally, I have just given up on keeping current with her series altogether.  Kinda sad.
  8. Bared to You (Crossfire, #1) The Crossfire series is kind of like a train wreck that you just can’t look away from.  I was glad I read it and enjoyed the ending but I don’t think I will be revisiting this world again.
  9. The Passage (The Passage, #1) I’m so glad I stuck with this trilogy to the end.  I’m also thrilled that I got a chance to meet Mr. Cronin at BEA a couple of years ago.  That being said I don’t think I’ll be rereading this series.
  10. Old Man's War (Old Man's War, #1) I read this series last year, actually need to finish the last two books still…, I thought the first two books were great but I don’t think I’ll be re-reading it even though I plan on keeping my signed copy in my home library forever.

What books did you love but never plan on reading ever again?

  1. I was also a bit disappointed with the Charlaine series ending. I kind of expected it to go the way it did but I hoped it wouldn’t. Overall, I enjoyed the series but it’s a bit sad to read so many books and feel ultimatey unsatisfied with the conclusion.

    1. I watched the first two or three seasons of the tv show but that fizzled out for me as it is drastically different from the books. I’m not sure how the show ended but I would encourage you to try the books. I really enjoyed the series up until book 9 or 10, and some people never had a problem with how the books ended at all. I felt near the end she started resenting the series or got bored with it because the last three books are not as good in my opinion. My suggestion is this try it, and if you get to a point where you think it might be going downhill, stop. Walk away and leave the series on a high note where you are still enjoying the characters.

      1. Yeah, I heard it was different from the show. I was curious though. Yeah, that sounds like a really good plan. I can get where I can and once I stop enjoying it, stop. Thank you! :)
