Second Chances: Favorite Series I Almost Didn't Continue

Hey guys!

Today I want to share some of my favorite series, specifically the ones that I didn't really care for at first, but loved them after giving the series a chance with the second book. Let's jump right in!

I almost didn't pick the next book up, and now it's one of my top 5 favorite series. I may try rereading this one, to see if my initially thoughts were accurate or if I was just in a slump. 

The first two books in this series are really rough, in both typos and other technicalities, but the idea was so intriguing that I pushed through. I'm so glad I did, because Perry is one of the heroines I connect to most!

I know I'm not alone with how the first Kate book went!
It took me 3 weeks to finish this book. The others in the series? A day each.
Sidenote: last book comes out in April. I'm sad!

Not my favorite urban fantasy series (and I hate the covers), but it's still really fun to get back with Mercy and the crew, even if the first book was another weeks long read. 

This book was fun enough, but I much preferred books 2 and 3. 

What about you? Any series or authors you're happy you tried again?


  1. I need to try AClayton's Redhead series or whatever it's called. Love her books but haven't had those yet.

  2. Yes, I agree, the first book of Ilona Andrews was rough for me too. I wasn't overly impressed with the first two books in the Vampire Academy, but I am glad I hung with it.

  3. Fun topic! Sometimes it IS best to keep reading in a series because they can often get better.

  4. I am glad to hear that about the last Alice Clayton one. I liked the first one but didn't love it. I will have to revisit!

  5. Agreed The first Kate Daniel book was rough for me, but wholly cow. She is now one of my top ten favorite authors. Crap, I have the first Dark House book and everytime I see it, I kick myself.
