Tell Me Something Tuesday: Popular Book Series

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post on Rainy Day Ramblings where Rainy discuss a wide range of topics from books to blogging. Weigh in and join the conversation by adding your thoughts in the comments. If you want to do your own post, grab the question and answer it on your blog.

What are some popular series you haven't tried or have and stopped because they just don't appeal to you?

Oooo there are a few I have yet to try or given up on. I have a hard time really getting into overly popular books and series. I get scared and worried. Here is a list that I can think off right off the top of my head: 

- 50 Shades of Grey series (not attempted)
- Game of Throne series (not attempted)
- Anita Blake series (got to about book 7 or so – I should get back into this)
- Stephanie Plum (read book 1, meh)
- Maze Runner (not attempted)
- Outlander (Started book 1 recently…we shall see)

These are just a few. I am sure there are plenty more I am forgetting about. 
Here is a challenge! If you have read any of these series and loved them, try to convince me to try it!! Hahaha. Good luck. 

Here are some paintings I have done recently in my paint notebook. It is so nefty. You can paint and it won't bleed! Love it! Way cheaper than canvases.

I've actually not read any of the books you listed. I do LOVE Outlander on television. I saw how many pages each of the books are and I got overwhelmed. Maybe someday.
My series that everyone loves is by Ilona Andrews, The Kate Daniels series. I barely got through the first one and I honestly almost DNF'd it. I know it's supposed to get better but I just can't. And it should be said that I normally love urban fantasy.

I've read some of those and a couple others on my nope too much hype list. lol Anita was good. Fifty made my eye twitch. lol

Lorna, it is a little overwhelming by how big the book is! I want to read the book and then watch the show (if I like the book). I have read one by Ilona...my goal is to try the second book.

Anna, Anita was good...just too long. Too many books. maybe someday.
