Top 5: Book Series I Won’t Finish

This weekend I thought I would tell you about five book series I don’t plan on continuing. On this blog I only talk about, and review, books I have enjoyed so I am excited to be talking about books I didn’t like so much (+ the one I hated). Each of these is pretty popular and was released a while ago, so I don’t feel too bad for saying I’m not continuing.
