Why I Did Not Read Succubus Revealed by Richelle Mead

Richelle Mead recently released the last book in her Georgina Kincaid series: Succubus Revealed.  Just typing that title makes me think of my husband yelling out, "SUCC-U-BUS!!!" whenever he catches a glimpse of one of the Georgina books. He thinks that the titles are hilarious and makes fun of me to no end for reading the Georgina series.  Now, I did buy and read the first five books in the series.  See my reviews here:
But, when I moved into my new house three weeks ago, I decided to donate the Georgina books to my local library.  I have decided to only keep books that I love, books that I want to read again.  And while I did read the first five Georgina Kincaid books, I do not want to ever read them again.  And I was not of a mind to spend the money on the last book, not when I've never really liked Georgina.  When she started taking away pieces of Seth's soul just to have the pleasure of touching him, I lost what little positive regard I used to have for her.  I'm usually not one to give up on a series, especially right at the end like this, but in lieu of reading Succubus Revealed, I read a bunch of spoiler-y reviews on Goodreads.  And, frankly, they told me all I needed to know.  Maybe it's me, but I never did get into this series.  It doesn't hold a candle, or even a half-burned flickering match to Mead's other books. 
Have you read the Georgina Kincaid series?  What did you think of it?


  1. Sometimes we have to give up on a series. I've done it. One example - Ward's BDB series. I still need to read Lover Mine and I can't wait for Tohr's book but I won't read the book that was released in between those two. I have no desire to read about Manny and Payne. And after Tohr's book, Lover Reborn, I'm done.

    I have not read this series nor do I intend to. After reading the blurb to the first book in the series, I've decided it's not for me.

    I do plan on reading her Vampire Academy series, which I need to do so.

  2. I'm not familiar with this series so I can't say but I love your honest take on the situation.

    I feel you on only keeping books you love. I only keep books I know I'll want to read again. I don't do that often.

  3. hmm...this is a book I haven't heard too much about. I don't read many mermaid tales, but I wouldn't think to expect a lot of humor either. I'm drawn to that because hey, who doesn't love to laugh. :)
