Series I Finished in 2021

This is usually one of my favorite posts to do at the end of each year. However...I only finished one series in 2021. The reading year was dismal overall and reading multiple books in series was difficult for me. I'm hoping that 2022 will be better as there are so many series that have concluded recently that I've been excited for. To make this post a bit better, I am also going to discuss just a few of the series that I hope to complete in the new year. Let's go ahead and dive right in!

The one and only series I finished was the These Violent Delights duology by Chloe Gong. It took me a while to get through the first one since I was slumping pretty hard but I really enjoyed it. I then had an advance copy of the sequel, Our Violent Delights, and read that in just a couple sittings. I absolutely loved the second book even more than the first and it has placed this duology into one of my favorite series of all time. I highly recommend it, though do be reminded it is a Romeo & Juliet retelling and prepare for any heartbreak that might come with that.

Now that I've discussed the one series I finished in the past year, I'm excited to talk about the top five series I'm hoping to read in 2022. As there are over thirty that I have on my immediate series list, it was a bit difficult to narrow down to the ones I'm most excited for at the moment. 

The first is the Hollow Crown duology by Zoriada Córdova. I read Incendiary when it first came out and absolutely loved it. I was so looking forward to the sequel, Illusionary, in 2021 and then my reading slump hit and I never read it. I do plan on reading it ASAP, though, as it will be quite a quick series to finish. I even plan on annotating my reread of the first book which is really exciting.

The next series I want to finish in the new year is the Empirium trilogy by Claire Legrand. I was so excited for the final book, Lightbringer, to come out after the ending of Kingsbane. But it again came out during my insane reading slump and I never felt like it was the right time to reread the series and finish it out. I also have to admit that I'm a bit worried as to how this trilogy will end and how my feelings will be at the end.

The third series I'm talking about is the Shadow Game trilogy by Amanda Foody. I read the first two books last spring and absolutely loved them. However, the second book broke my heart and I couldn't dive straight into the third just yet. And then my slump hit again and I never actually read the third book. It's on my TBR for the next few months and I am so nervous for how this series is going to conclude.

Up next is the We Hunt the Flame duology by Hafsah Faizal. I started the first book at the end of the year and am still finishing. I'm really enjoying it and I'm really just interested to see how the rest of the story goes. I am slumping a bit right now but I'm hopeful that it's not impacting the book too much for me. 

Lastly, I want to finally finish the Veil Diaries by B.L. Brunnemer. This is a book series that I've been following from the very beginning many years ago. The final book came out a while back and I still haven't read it. I want to reread the entire series before getting to the end, but there's also nine books so it is a bit of a commitment. But it's also a story that I love and am looking forward to finishing (for now). There is a sequel series that is coming soon as well, so I definitely need to finish this series ASAP. 

So those are the top five series I want to finish in the new year, out of over thirty that I have on my immediate TBR. Basically, I just want to finish more stories that I've been in the middle of for years. Do you have any series that you want to read in the new year? Let me know in the comments!
