Top Ten Series that I Haven't Finished

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic is:  Top Ten series I haven't finished yet either because I just haven't gotten around to it yet or because I decided not to continue with the series because I disliked the first one.

1.  Shadow Falls series by C.C. Hunter
 I loved Born at Midnight but for some reason I just haven't got around to reading the rest in this series.

2. XVI series by Julia Karr
 I loved XVI and was planning on reading the second one, Truth, as soon as it came out but still I haven't read it.

3. Fallen series by Lauren Kate
 I have read and liked the first two books in this series.  I didn't think they were the greatest but I still liked them.  I do plan on reading the third book in the future.

4. Hush, Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick
 I didn't like Hush Hush at all, I just didn't think it was original in any way.  So I won't be reading the rest of the series.

5. The Caster Chronicles by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
 I have only read Beautiful Creatures and I liked it but I didn't super like it so I haven't really felt the need to pick up the second book.  Who knows, maybe with the movie being released I might be encouraged to read the second book.

6. Unbound series by Rachel Vincent
 This is an adult series.  I read the first book, Blood Bound, and really liked it.  I thought it was very different.  I planned to read to second one as soon as it came out but just...didn't.  I do plan to read it in the future.

7. The Curse Workers series by Holly Black
 I read White Cat a while back and thought it was okay.  There was a lot of stuff in the book that I didn't really like so I won't be continuing with the series.

8. The Dark Divine series by Bree Despain
 I really liked The Dark Divine and The Lost Saint and was planning to read The Savage Grace when it came out but then I found out it wasn't going to be published in the UK.  The only version, that I can see, that is available is the US hardback, which is more expensive.  So I just decided to wait until the paperback gets released.

9. The Iron Witch series by Karen Mahoney
 I read the first book in this series a while back and to be honest I can't remember what happened in it.  I do remember that I liked it but because I don't really want to re-read the first to remind myself what happens, I've just decided to not continue with the series.

10. Raised by Wolves series by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
 I loved the first two books in this series and although the third book only came out a few months ago, it still has been sitting unread on my bookshelf.
