Book Series I Finished in 2018!

Hey all! The year has come to a close and now I'm here to talk all about it! I ended up with a pretty good reading year, especially when it comes to these past few months. I read so many amazing books this year and I ended up finishing more series this year than in any previous year! In 2018, I managed to finish seven series, which is almost twice as many as I finished in 2017. I'm pretty proud of this accomplishment and hope to finish even more in 2019! But without further ado, here are the seven series I finished in 2018:

The first series I finished in 2018 was the Executive Toy series by Cleo Peitsche in January. This was also the only series I finished in the first half of the year. I had read the first three books at the very end of 2017 and ended up finishing the last three in the very beginning of 2018. It was a pretty fun series but I didn't love it too much. Mostly, it was a fast read and pretty short but I haven't had the urge to return to the series since finishing.

The next series I finished was The Illuminae Files trilogy by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff in July. I loved the first two books and it was almost a two year wait for me until I could read the final book since I had read an advanced copy of the second. I think the reason it took me months after the release date for me to read this one was because I wanted to reread the first two in preparation for this one. And it was such a fun reread! I love this trilogy so much and it's brought me both happiness and great pain. Overall, I thought Obsidio was a perfect end to the trilogy. Reviews: Book 1, Book 2, Book 3

The third series I finished in 2018 was The Oresteia trilogy by Aeschylus in October. The explanation behind this one is pretty simple: I had to read it for a class I was taking. I'll be honest and say I don't remember much of what happened and I don't really care to reread it anytime soon. 

The fourth series I finished in 2018 was the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas in October. If you've been around for a while, you know my love for this series. It's one of the series that got me back into reading years ago and I was eagerly anticipating this final release. I still can't quite believe that it's over but I absolutely loved the final book. Reviews: Book 0.5, Book 1, Book 3, Book 5, Book 6, Book 7

The fifth series I finished was the To All the Boys I've Loved Before trilogy by Jenny Han in November. This was an unexpected one for me, as at the beginning of the year I didn't even know anything about this trilogy. But when the movie trailer came out, I really wanted to watch it but I knew I wanted to read the book first. And then I finished the book...and needed to know what happened next. I absolutely loved reading this trilogy and I only wish I'd found it sooner. I love the characters so much and it was such a light, fun-hearted read that has found its way onto my favorites list. Reviews: Book 1, Book 2, Book 3

The sixth series I finished in 2018 was the Curse of the Gods series by Jaymin Eve & Jane Washington in December. I started reading this series when it came out and fell in love immediately. I absolutely adored this series and, while it's sad to see it come to an end, it was such an amazing ride and I loved the final book! Reviews: Book 1, Book 2, Book 3, Book 4, Book 4.5, Book 5

The seventh and final series I finished this year was the Dark Side series by Kristy Cunning in December. This series was a lot of fun to read and I definitely thought the final book was a great end to the series. Overall, I really enjoyed this series and will most likely revisit my favorite scenes but I don't think it was an amazing, out of this world story. 

Well, those were the seven series I finished reading in 2018! I'm hoping to finish even more series in the upcoming year and already have such a huge TBR. Wish me luck! Thanks for reading! For all my other 2018 wrap-up posts, go here!
