Five Favorite: Series I Haven’t Finished

“Five Favorite” is a feature on thewasofshall where I lay out my five favorite “x”. Sometimes they’re relevant to a season or holiday, mostly they’re not. It’s an all-around fun excuse to give my 100% amazingly awesome opinion. To see previous topics, click here.

Do you know the feeling where you read a book and you’re so in love with it and need more and then you find out that it’s part of a series and you’re like, YESSSS?

Me, too. Except, for some reason or another, I start series and really, really love the books and then, just… stop. Put the rest of the series on my TBR and then move on to something else.

Below are some of my favorite series I haven’t quite finished.*

The All Souls trilogy by Deborah Harkness
Series starter: A Discovery of Witches
I last read number 1
Books are up to 3 — AND THE SERIES IS FINISHED. AND I OWN ALL THE BOOKS.

The Giver quartet by Lois Lowry

The Passage trilogy by Justin Cronin
