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:

  1. Post a picture of your bookshelf (preferably literal, but e-shelves work too).
  2. 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.
  3. Then give us the blurb and the cover of the book (and what you thought of it if you’ve read it)
  4. And finally, come back to my post and send us a link! I promise to check out all of your posts!
