You ever get that feeling of being trapped in a series, this feeling of I'm never going to be able to read anything but this series again, even though it might be the greatest series in the world.
I get that from time to time and even though I love a series to death, I started taking rather long breaks (like a month or two) in between books in a series and I seem to enjoy later installments much more without the "I'm trapped in an unending series" sense.
I got this idea from a website (here actually) and thought I'd list all the series that I'm in the middle of or waiting for along with how many books I've actually read in each one. Hence, "unfinished" is taken in the sense of series' that I have yet to finish reading as well as some series' that don't have a conclusion yet, which I couldn't finish even if I pushed everything else aside.
These also happen to be series' that I for some reason have no doubt in my mind I'll finish. :D
Below are the series' followed by the books I've read/total count:
A Song of Ice and Fire 4/projected 7
The Wheel of Time 5/projected 14
Malazan Book of the Fallen 6/10
Gentlmen Bastards 1/2 so far, but probably 7
The Long Price Quartet 1/4
Dresden Files 3/11
Discworld 1/37+ (I should probably just give up now)
The Riyria Revelations Reading book 1/projected 6
Not to mention I've never been able to keep up with Raymond Feist or R.A Salvatore and have all but given up on those.
Alright, so I have a long way to go seeing as how I'm in the middle of 8 series and I continue to read a million things in between. I'll do it, mark my words, I will do it, you just watch me. :)
Anyone else "stuck" in the middle of a few?
