Book Confession: Playing Catch Up

Recently I’ve been wondering if I’m a bad fan...I’ve been falling into a bad habit with some of my favourite authors and series recently. I buy the books but I don’t read them. Not because I don’t want too, but for some reason my favourite series take ages to make their way to the top of the TBR pile. I probably read one or two books in ongoing series a month – but I have fallen so far behind with so many series! I’m not even talking about the numerous un-started series that I’ve been collecting – but series that I’ve already read at least one book and have started collecting the rest of the books. But the series just sits there even though I know I will enjoy the books, if I ever get round to reading them! To give you some examples...
Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong – I have both Waking the Witch and Spellbound in the flat unread
Chicagoland Vampires series by Chloe Neill – Hard Bitten and Drink Deep
Deadtown series by Nancy Holzner – Hellforged and Bloodstone
Jane Yellowrock series by Faith Hunter – Mercy Blade and Raven Crossed
Mythos Academy series by Jennifer Estep – Kiss of Frost and Dark Frost (although as Dark Frost is an e-Arc I can forgive myself this one)
The Edge series by Ilona Andrews – Bayou Moon and Fates Edge
Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost – One Foot In The Grave and At Grave’s End
I know there are others but these are the ones that I can remember off the top of my head. And there are plenty of other series where I am only one book behind! All great series by authors I really enjoy – and I’m behind!! I feel like a bad fan of all these series. Am I the only one? Does anyone else have a series they love but are a few books behind on? Or am I alone with this habit? J


  1. I am a few books behind with tons of series, it's so hard to keep up

  2. Oh yes- I can definitely relate! I have loads of series that I'm mid-way through, but end up starting new series instead of finishing the ones I've already got sitting on the shelf.
    There are too many series at the moment- so many good books to read and not enough time!

  3. Um yes! I've fallen into the same hole as you. I have several follow up books, then follow up books to those, I need to get back to. I really need to see about solving that some. :) good luck!!
