Série, ktoré nedokončím

Keď som prvý krát rozmýšľala nad týmto článkom, tak ma skoro žiadne série, ktoré nemám v pláne dokončiť nenapadali. Preferujem väčšinou samostatné knižky, kde nemusím čakať na pokračovanie alebo jednému príbehu venovať veľmi veľa času. Je predsa toľko rôznych kníh, cez ktoré sa chcem dostať. Ale čím dlhšie som nad týmto rozmýšľala, tým viac nedokončených sérií mi napadlo. Na kopu z nich som pozabudla, lebo som si buď prečítala iba jednu knihu alebo som ich čítala už dosť dávno a ani netuším, koľko kníh zo série mám vlastne prečítaných.

The Princess Diaries (goodreads)

Denníky princeznej som čítala už pred mnohými rokmi a veľmi si ich v tom čase užívala. Naša knižnica však nikdy nemala pokope všetky diely, a tak som si ich domou brala v náhodnom poradí a vôbec netuším, koľko som ich vlastne prečítala. Som si však istá, že neboli všetky. Minulý rok však po niekoľkoročnej odmlke vyšla ďalšia (a posledná?) kniha odohrávajúca sa o niekoľko rokov neskôr a zatiaľ čo veľa ľudí, ktorí predtým túto sériu čítali, je nadšených, mňa necháva chladnou. Po takom dlhom čase si totiž len matne spomínam, čo sa v jednotlivých knihách dialo a nemám záujem ich všetky čítať, len aby som túto sériu dokončila.

When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move—and that one of their own has betrayed them.

Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, but her longing for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will—the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?

As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart.

Májové zúčtovanie

Spočiatku to vyzeralo, že tento mesiac bude čo sa čítania týka jedna veľká katastrofa. Nevybrala som si totiž knihy, ktoré sa čítali zrovna najrýchlejšie a kvôli testom a skúškovému som na čítanie ani nemala toľko času.
