Follow Friday #48
[Yay! I only have to go to school two days next week, and then I'm out for the summer! :D)
Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee.
Q: Have you broken up with a series? If so, which one and why?
There've been plenty of series over the years that I've just neglected. There's Beautiful Creatures (Garcia/Stohl), which I only read the first of. Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials series (you, know, The Golden Compass?), which I got halfway through the second one. I read the first and maybe part of the second of Redwall (Brian Jaques).
There are plenty more, and not always because they didn't interest me. The ones I just mentioned were because I moved on to other books and I just never got around to picking up the next book. Some series, like Garth Nix's Keys to the Kingdom (I got up to book 5), it's because I never found the next book. (I still hold out hope for that series -- I think one of my local libraries has the sixth. I just have to find a copy of the 3rd so I can re-read the series!)
But really, I try to finish series. Sometimes I don't around to it, for various reasons.
How about you? Do you ever break up with a series, and if so, which ones? Have a blessed weekend!
