This post (and it's Part II, which I'll be posting next Friday) is happening for a couple of reasons.
1. Mel over at The Daily Prophecy wrote this post about all of her series.
2. Which got me thinking about all of the series I've started and which I've dropped, which I have the next/last book but haven't read them yet, which I've completed, and which don't even have all of the books out yet.
3. So then I was sitting on the subway with my friend Jennifer (Novel Thoughts and ARCycling) and we started listing all the series we could think of that we've either started, dropped, have books on our shelves for, or are waiting on the next installment of.
4. Then we made it to my stop, I got off and I was still thinking about it.
5. So even though it's mega late and this is not a good project for me to start, I'm going to make four categories and list all the series I can.
6. Because I know you all care.
I don't have many of these. I like to finish what I start.
- MATCHED by Allie Condie
- THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS by Cassandra Clare (I read the first 3 but not the rest.)
- THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS by Ann Brashares (I know, burn me at the stake. Whatever.)
- THE PRINCESS DIARIES by Meg Cabot
- THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA by C.S. Lewis (THERE ARE TOO MANY. I just can't.)
- CREWEL WORLD by Gennifer Albin (but I still want to know what happens, so someone tell me.)
- SACCADES TRILOGY by Courtney Eldridge
- DEFIANCE by C.J. Redwine
- GUARDIANS OF TIME by Marianne Curley (I got super mad at this series back in the day. But they're still on my shelf. Mostly because I love Marianne Curley's book OLD MAGIC like it's my job. So.)
- THE BURNING SKY by Sherry Thomas (This isn't a solid DNF because I want to know what happens but I didn't love the first and don't know if I care to go through the whole series.)
Series of which I have the next/last book but haven't gotten to yet
BUT I DO INTEND TO GET TO. (More embarrassment.) I'm not including first books I have but haven't gotten to yet. Mostly because that's a really long list and I feel like you all don't care anymore.

Series I've Completed
I feel like there are more than I'm listing here, but Goodreads does not encompass my full reading history and I'm mostly going on what's on my shelves. Which is mostly old stuff I read as an actual teen. As you can tell, I was very into fantasy. (SPECIAL SHOUT TO ALL YOU PATRICIA C. WREDE FANS.)

- MISS PEREGRINE by Ransom Riggs
Okay. Lots of lists. But stay tuned for next week when I list all of the first books in series I have, just for kicks and giggles. And so you wise people can maybe advise me on what I should read and what I should just giveaway because ain't nobody got time for bad series that sound good.
Which of these series have you read? Which have you finished, which have you DNFed and which, of those I haven't finished, should I DNF? Also, are you also excited about those series with new books coming? TELL ME ALL OF YOUR THOUGHTS IN THE COMMENTS BELOW. (Please?)
