Reading books and stuff

I’ve spent the majority of this Summer lamenting my choices in reading material. Not that I haven’t thoroughly enjoyed what I’ve read, it’s just that I’ve been diving head-first into book series that aren’t yet complete.

I was spoiled by The Hunger Games trilogy, back in March. I set my goal to read the book before the first movie came out. That really meant Book 1, but I got sucked in and tore through the entire trilogy in 3 days. That was only an option because all the books had been published. That hasn’t been the case with what I’ve read since then and it’s absolutely killing me!

After The Hunger Games, I dove into the Divergent trilogy, by Veronica Roth. When I started, only book one was available, but the second book, Insurgent, was being released in a week or so. So I easily went from Book 1 to Book 2, then found out the final book in the trilogy wasn’t being released until FALL 2013!

I apparently still didn’t learn my lesson, because the next books I read was Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series. Originally it was supposed to be a trilogy, but then she decided to extend the story by 3 more books. But that’s not it. She had also started writing a prequel series of sorts, called The Infernal Devices and neither set is complete!
