Top Ten & Teaser Tuesday 9/25/12

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke & The Bookish 
Top Ten Unfinished Series: 

 1) The Maze Runner Trilogy by James Dashner 
I read the first book, I don't know when I'll get around to reading the rest of the books in that series, I liked the book, but wasn't crazy about it.  
2)  The Matched Trilogy by Ally Condie 
I don't know, maybe it was the slow beginning, but I did not like that book. I have the second book on my computer, I don't know if I will ever get around to it. 
3) Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
I read all but the last one. I know what happens in the last book, I started it back in high school and someone told me about the end, and I just put it on my shelf and haven't picked it up again.
4) The Mortal Instruments/ The  Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare 
I just read Clockwork Angel and can't wait to start Clockwork Prince! And I have City of Fallen Angels and City of Lost Souls to read yet. 
5) Morganville Vampire Series by Rachel  
Only the last two, until they make another one for the series!
6) The Soul Screamers Series by Rachel Vincent
I liked the first three books, I will read the rest someday. 
7) Caine Inheritance Series by Christopher Paolini 
All but the last two.  
8) Gemma Doyle Series by Libba Bray
I listened to the first two on audio book, I don't know what's wrong with me, I normally love books like that, set in that time zone/era, but they just wasn't all that great.
9) The Wolves of Mercy Falls Series by Maggie Stiefvater
One book left to read.  
10) The Iron Fey Series by Julie Kagawa
I liked the first book, but haven't read the rest.



Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
Grab you'r current read
Open the book to a random page
Share with us two (2) "teasers" sentences form that page
Be careful not to include spoilers! (make sure what you share doesn't give away too much! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title of the book so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR pile if they'd like   

Today my teaser comes from... 
The Demon King (Seven Realms, #1)
 
In stories, Queen Hanalea fought off the powerful Demon King through strength of character and the power of good.
in the clan camps, they spoke of the small overcoming the mighty through the force of a focused mind.

We have a lot of the same books on our list! I'm not quite done w/ Morganville yet either. Same with The Mortal Instruments. The Matched Trilogy was slow for me too. I liked the first one okay but couldn't finish the 2nd book.

I don't know if the second book in the Matched series is even worth reading. Thank you for leaving the comment.
