THIS WEEK’S TOPIC FROM ADDLEPATES AND BOOKWORMS IS
books you bought just to complete a set
Unfortunately for my wallet, I like owning complete sets of series, even if I’m not particularly thrilled with the novels themselves. Honestly the only one of the books below that I actually read is Inkdeath, which I reviewed last Sunday. I bought The Last Olympian because I had ordered the first four Percy Jackson books through my sister’s book order (how I miss those…). At the time of purchase The Atlantis Complex was the last of the Artemis Fowl series, I intended to read it and got halfway through it, but it was my freshman year of college and time slipped away from me. Two more recent purchases to complete a series are Lost in Time and Gates of Paradise which round out the Blue Bloods series by Melissa de la Cruz. Another case of a book not being the last in the series anymore, was when I purchased Awakened, the eighth novel in the House of Night series.
WHICH BOOKS Did you buy to complete a set?
To participate in the Exploring Your Bookshelf meme hosted by Addlepates and Bookworms, here’s what you do:
- Post a picture of your bookshelf (preferably literal, but e-shelves work too).
- I’ll give you something about your shelf to write about. It might be your favourite cover, your favourite author, your book you most recently bought etc.
- Then give us the blurb and the cover of the book (and what you thought of it if you’ve read it)
- And finally, come back to my post and send us a link! I promise to check out all of your posts!
