Unfinished Series Shame

One thing that I am totally guilty of is starting a series…and then never finishing. This is a huge problem that I have! There are so many books constantly coming out that I get attracted to a new shiny book, starting a new series, and then never returning to the first book, even if I loved it! So in order to really see how much of a problem this was for me, I went through my entire Goodreads to-read shelf and put all the series I am currently reading into categories on this post. Hopefully, I can focus on finishing some more this year before starting new ones.
