Yes, I was totally just rewatching that scene from Sense8 where they all start singing the 4 Non Blondes song and felt the need to start belting out “what’s going on” I think it is called What’s Up, but What’s Going On works better for me. So, what’s going on? There aren’t any new series starting up this week, and like last week I thought I would again do something a bit different. But instead of looking into what new series you have been enjoying, I thought we could look at what series you follow that have just sort of…stopped, leaving you waiting for the next book that never seems to come. Or is promised to come – someday.
Mine is actually from Shana Abe. I was really hit or miss on her Drakon series – loved some, totally didn’t dig others. It was really weird, actually. I haven’t had that type of reaction to any other series that I remember. Of course, there have been times when I haven’t liked a certain installment in a series as much as some of the others, but not from one extreme to the other and back again in the course of five books. But what I did love was her young adult spin-off The Sweetest Dark books. The setting, the writing, the characters – loved it all. What I am not loving so much? The endless wait for the third book, which has been in limbo for, oh, about three years now, with no end in sight. I do know it is supposed to be in progress, but no clue on when. I keep looking for info, but no luck so far. I understand that things happen, but I think it is the lack of updates that bugs me the most. Or maybe I am just too demanding?
That one is probably the worst for me, but there are other series that seem to have just died off somehow. Like has anyone heard anything about the Downside Ghosts series from Stacia Kane? I haven’t started that one yet, but I have heard such good things about it I am really looking forward to diving in – but there hasn’t been any news about it for ages. Ditto Dani Harper‘s Changeling series and Coreene Callahan‘s Dragonfury books. I keep looking for info, but no luck.
What book has kept you in limbo the longest? What series do you follow that has just sort of gone into indefinite hiatus? How long do you wait before you just lose hope and move on?
