Both Candyce and I are members of a really fun Facebook group where a post two days ago prompted this article! Someone asked about the series we finished last year and I realized that I set myself a goal about finishing series in 2017. I thought I failed miserably but it turned out I actually ALMOST made the goal. As I mentioned in the reading goals for 2018 post (you can find it here) I set myself the same goal this year. I plan on finishing 12 series this year. These are both series I already own completely and series where the last book comes out this year. Lets take a look!
Throne of Glass – Sarah J. Maas | Books left: 1
This is one of my absolute favorite series ever! The last book will be released in September this year and I think this is my most anticipated book this year (and probably of ever). I love this series so much and adore every single character. I hope Sarah has a couple of good twists for us and a satisfying ending.
The Sin Eater’s Daughter – Melinda Salisbury | Books left: 1
I read the first two books pretty quickly after they were released but unfortunately I still haven’t read the last one – a year after purchasing it!- and I need to do that ASAP.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone – Laini Taylor | Books left: 1
I wasn’t really interested in these books, mostly because I really hated the cover I saw everywhere. However Melissa raved about it all the time and showed me an alternate cover. And those covers I actually loved, we did a buddy read with our bookish friends and I read book 2 pretty quickly after. Still need to read the last one though! And I need to do that soon as I will be forgetting all the details haha.
The Remnant Chronicles – Mary E. Pearson | Books left: 1,5
I’m currently reading the second book in this series. I forgot tons of (important) details from the first book so I might read the third one soon after finishing this one or I’ll have the same problem haha. I’m halfway through the book and hope to finish it this week.
Half Bad – Sally Green | Books left: 2
I read the first book ages ago and bought the next two somewhere last year. I planned on reading them for that whole year but somehow didn’t… I forgot a lot from the first book and hope it will come back to me once I start reading the next two books.
Snow Like Ashes – Sara Raasch | Books left: 2
I read the first book a couple of weeks ago and enjoyed it immensely. I really want to read the next two and hope I get to them soon. I already own them and keep looking at them haha. This might be the first series I’ll finish this year!
Red Queen – Victoria Aveyard | Books left: 2
I loved the first book so much but was pretty disappointed when reading the second. It was super slow and I just didn’t feel the magic I felt while reading the first one. Because of that I kept putting off reading the third book but with the fourth (and final right?) book coming out this year I plan of finishing this series. I really hope the third one picks up again and will back me fall back in love with the series.
Illuminae files – Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff | Books left: 2
Another series I started at the end of 2017! I read Illuminae pretty fast, it is over 600 pages but the format ensures you can go through it quite quickly. I hope that will also be the case for the next two books. I already own book 2 and want to read that one before the last book comes out this year.
The Blackheart Legacy – Liz de Jager | Books left: 1
I really enjoyed the first book when I read it 3 years ago. The second book was also quite enjoyable but not as good in my opinion. I hope the third will be as good as the first! It has been sitting on my shelves for a while and it’s time to finish this series.
Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children – Ransom Riggs | Books left: 2
I wasn’t really a fan of this series but I did enjoy the photo’s that are in there a lot. I already have the second and third book and will at least try and finish them. However, if I don’t like the second book either I might stop reading this series. I don’t really do that ever but there are simply more books I want to read than time I have to read so choices will be made!
The Thousandth Floor – Katharine McGee | Books left: 2
I LOVED the first book last year and actually already started the second book. I kinda forgot about it somehow but will hopefully read it soon. I expect to go through it quickly as it’s a fast read. And then the last book will be released this summer!
His Fair Assassin – Robin LaFevers | Books left: 1
It’s been quite a while since I read the first two books and I don’t remember too much about it apart from the fact that I loved them. The world was so interesting and the characters are great. I really need to read this one this year!
These are the series I plan on finishing this year, 12 series, 18,5 books. I already own 15 and the other 4 are unreleased. I have a pretty good feeling about this! Are there any series you plan on finishing this year? Let me know in the comments!
