Unfinished series and ones I won’t finish 2020

Well hi! Today is a combination of two posts I try to do every year. Mostly for my own sanity, this year I’m combining them into one: My unfinished series and ones I’ll be discontinuing. We’ll start with the ones I won’t be continuing, then go onto the ones I will be.

Series from last year’s post that I’ve decided to discontinue:

Hyperion (Hyperion Cantos, #1)Walk on Earth a Stranger  (The Gold Seer Trilogy, #1)Locke & Key, Vol. 1: Welcome to LovecraftY: The Last Man, Vol. 1: Unmanned
Illuminae by Amie KaufmanCrazy Rich Asians by Kevin KwanBitch Planet, Vol. 1 by Kelly Sue DeConnickSnow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes, #1)
Naoki Urasawa's Monster, Volume 1 by Naoki UrasawaAngels & Demons (Robert Langdon, #1)

So, the only one above that I might continue at some point is Snow Like Ashes, because I do own the first one. I have read the second, but I don’t own it. Aaaand if I were to ever read the third, I’d have to reread the first two. Right now I don’t see myself doing that, but hey, it could happen.

Series that I started this year and have decided to discontinue:

Heaven's Devils by William C. DietzHitorijime My Hero, Vol. 1 by Memeko AriiAgain!!, Vol. 1 by Mitsurou KuboLDK Vol. 1 by Ayu Watanabe
I Hate Fairyland, Vol. 1 by Skottie YoungMars, Vol. 1 by Fuyumi SoryoEvery Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuireThat Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, Vol. 1 by Fuse
Pestilence by Laura ThalassaThe Maze Runner by James DashnerThe Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers

The majority of these I read and wasn’t too impressed with. The only exceptions to this were Again!! and Every Heart a Doorway. Both of them I did like, but I just feel no urge to continue them.

Ongoing series from last year’s post that I do plan on continuing:

And how many of them I’ve read. If I’ve increased the amount that I’ve read from last year, I’ll bold the number.

Aaaand that’s it. I had no idea I was in the middle of so many series until just now, when I went through and listed them all out.


I think one of my 2021 read goals is going to be to finish some of these, holy cow. Also, this list does not include series that I ended up finishing this year or series that are unfinished, but I’m currently caught up with. So keep that in mind, too.

Happy Blogmas!
