Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Series I’d Like to Finish Sometime Soon

Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and is currently being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is “Series I’d Like to Start/Catch up on/Finish.” I am actually not a fan of doing these kinds of posts anymore. Mostly because they make me feel very disorganized, chaotic, and disappointed in myself. I should not have this many series on my shelf that I haven’t finished and yet here we are. I never learn and I just end up picking up more series and falling deeper into a hole that I will probably never crawl my way out of. I suppose on the bright side it means that I always have something to read. Featuring the next book or last book in these series I need to pick up. Feel free to bully me in the comments about these. Covers linked to Goodreads.

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Characters Who Make Bad Decisions (I Want to Look Away But Can’t)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and is currently being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is “Unlikable Characters You Can’t Help but Love.” I’m not really into this week’s topic. Maybe it’s because I feel like I’ve changed the way I approach unlikable characters. I’m not so much interested in whether they are unlikable, I’m more interested in whether they are compelling. So I thought it would be fun to do a list of characters who make decisions that had me screaming “No, don’t do it!” but they did it anyway. I also still love all these characters despite their many many flaws. Also no spoilers in the comments please! I still need to finish several of these series. Covers linked to Goodreads.

1. Hilo from the Green Bone Saga

2. Séverin from The Gilded Wolves

3. Nahri, Dara, Ali from The Daevabad Trilogy

4. Meche from Signal to Noise

5. Lula from Bruja Born

6. Every POV character in the Witchlands series

7. Kai from The Sixth World

8. Nazir and Altair from Sands of Arawiya

9. Hector from The Beautiful Ones (and Valérie but not in a loving way)

10. Henry from The Fixer duology

Did any of these characters’ choices make you scream as well? Who are your favorite characters who make poor decisions? Let me know in the comments and be sure to leave me a link to your own TTT post, so I can visit!
