The tough thing about reading so many series (62 at last official count, but that’s no longer accurate) is that inevitably, some get pushed down the To Be Read list and neglected. I’m not talking about the series I’m not interested in continuing, I’m talking about the ones that I do want to read, but for any of a number of reasons I haven’t picked up the next book in ages.
I updated my series list in my TBR spreadsheet and added the dates I read the most recent book. I wanted to see which series It’s been the longest since I’ve read one of the books. Yikes – it’s been a long time for some of these. The interesting thing is that I do want to read and continue all of these, but I keep getting distracted by the new and shiny on the shelf and the latest books that are getting all the chatter. I read a high proportion of backlist, but there are always a few on the list that keep getting deferred.
These are the series I’ve neglected the longest. I’m not making any promises about any of them, but hope to get to at least one on each of these series sometime in 2011. All the covers and links are to the first book in each series. They’re all good series so I encourage you to give them a try.
What about you? What series have you been neglecting? Is it because you’re not sure you want to continue or is it because you got distracted by the new and shiny.
