Top 5 Trilogies to Finish

Monday, July 28, 2014

I wrote a post back in April about the top five trilogies I wanted to start this year (which I'm going to have to change to next year because I haven't started any of them), so I thought I would talk about the trilogies I'd like to eventually finish. I don't have any excuses because all of the books mentioned are already published, but ... too many books, too little time!

The Maze Runner by James Dasher
I read The Maze Runner back in November for my "dystopian-themed" reading month and thought it was just okay ... but after watching the movie trailer, I really want to find out what happens. I'll probably borrow them as ebooks from my library instead of buying them because they'll only be a one-time read.

The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han
I read the first book when I was in middle (or high) school, but I never continued reading the second or third one. I've decided to try it again because I remember enjoying it (and I told myself that I would have to finish this trilogy before purchasing To All The Boys I've Loved Before :p)

Delirium by Lauren Oliver
The first book started off really slow for me but by the end, I was surprised at how much I liked it. It left off at a cliffhanger and I own the last two books, so I've made finishing these two my only goal for August! (Also, have any of you watched the pilot episode on Hulu? I was really hoping it would make a good TV show, but it turned out pretty awful ...)

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Shatter Me was good and Unravel Me (the second book) was even better, so I'm expecting a lot of good things from Ignite Me. I haven't picked it up yet because I'm waiting for it to come out in paperback, but I think I'm going to borrow it from the library as an ebook first because I'm impatient :x

The Selection by Kiera Cass
I would consider this trilogy to be a light and easy read (which means no thinking), but I can't help but enjoy the plot. I'm currently reading The One, the last book in the trilogy, and it has been as interesting as both The Selection and The Elite were. If you don't like reading but want to start, I would recommend this trilogy.

Are there any trilogies (or series) that you've started and would like to finish but haven't yet? If they are unfinished trilogies/series, are you waiting for all of the books to come out before continuing on?


  1. Pretty much all of your picks are on either my "to start" or "to finish" list except for The Selection (which I JUST finished the series) and The Summer Series which I finished and ADORED a long time ago! I can't wait to hear what you think about The One.

  2. All of the trilogies I mentioned are pretty popular, so that makes sense! Did you like The Selection trilogy? I'm liking The One so far and I'm not as annoyed with America as a lot of other people are, but there are some things that happened to her that were kind of unbelievable!

  3. Yes I did! And I wasn't as annoyed with her as most either...My review of The One will (hopefully) be posted on Thursday. I did really enjoy the series as a whole, though.

  4. I just finished reading The One and to me America got a lot better in it. While it didn't end up panning out how I wanted it to (DAMN) I still enjoyed it haha. I hope you can get round to finishing some of these other trilogies! I've only finished the Delirium trilogy and I really enjoyed it.

  5. Ahhhhh, perfect! I just finished The One so I will be reading and commenting on that :)

  6. Hi Patrice, I just finished reading The One too! You wanted America to end up with someone else? (I hope this makes sense because I don't want to spoil anyone, hahaha :p) I will definitely be reading Pandemonium soon, so I'll let you know how I like it! (Somehow ...)

  7. Haha that does make sense. Yea I did want her to end up with someone else. I knew it wasn't going to happen though so I'm OK with it. I hope you do enjoy Pandemonium. From what I remember there's a bit more action. I think... Haha.
