My main goal this year is to catch up on series I’m reading and are still being published and (what this post is about) finishing series that are already completed.
I will not delete any of the series you see here. I might modify this as the year progresses (maybe I discover new series or I have a good reading year), but only to add more series. Any updates will be indicated; the original post will remain as it is.
Books read: 37/41
Series finished: 6/9
- Just One Day, Gayle Forman – 2 books FINISHED
I started Just One Day last year while I was working but a slump hit me and I just couldn’t finish it, no matter how I tried. I want to finish this first thing in January (I hate having unfinished books) before I start forgetting things. Also to prevent that, I want to read Just One Year soon after.
- Percy Jackson, Rick Riordan – 5 books 3/5 read
I don’t know how I’ve managed that but I never completed the series. I know The Lightning Thief by heart, I have read it a lot of times, but as the series goes on, the number of times I’ve read each book lessens. I have tried a couple of times to marathon the series, which I truly enjoy, but I never actually got to The Last Olympian, for some reason or another. This year, though, will be the year I finally read the Percy Jackson series. I loooooooove mythology, so I want to read more of Rick Riordan‘s books but even though not all of them are related, I want to read them in order, and that means finishing this series first.
- Shatter Me, Tahereh Mafi – 3 books FINISHED
I have only read Shatter Me. I read it a couple of years ago. Then, last year, I decided I wanted to continue with the series but I forgot some things about book 1, and I also felt like revisiting the world, so I reread Shatter Me in order to have everything recent for Unravel Me. Even though I read the novella, Destroy Me, as well, I never read book 2.
- The Hundred, Kass Morgan – 4 books 3/4 read
I explain what happened with this series in my January TBR, but basically I thought I completed the series in 2016 only to discover a few months later that they added a book to the series, which came out in December.
- The Royals, Erin Watt – 3 books FINISHED
I wasn’t expecting much from this books, but I buddy read the first two with a friend and was pleasantly surprised; they are very fun and different from what I normally read. Book 3 came out November of 2016 and I want to buddy read it again.
- The Selection, Kiera Cass – 5 books FINISHED
I have also explained what happened with this series; I read and enoyed the first three books in the series when they came out. It was originally supposed to be a trilogy (that’s why it’s in my Completed Book Series) and I was happy about the ending but some time after that it was announced that two more books would be coming out. I was both excited and scared about it. I never read or started reading those two books, but I wanted to reread the original trilogy, so I might as well read them all.
- The Winner’s Trilogy, Marie Rutkoski – 3 books FINISHED
I read both The Winner’s Curse and The Winner’s Crime in 2016. I enjoyed them both and want to know how everything ends. All the reviews I have read say that The Winner’s Kiss is the best one in the trilogy, so I’m ready! Or so I think.
- To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, Jenny Han – 3 books FINISHED
I am caught up with this series, yay! I am actually waiting for Always and Forever Lara Jean to be released in May so I can read it, if not in May, soon after it comes out. PS I Still Love You is the last book I read in 2016 and the first one reviewed here on the blog!
- A Series of Unfortunate Events, Lemony Snicket – 13 books 12/13 read
Quite a lot of books in a series, but I decided to add it nonetheless. I started with book 1 in January and found the books to be very funny and easy to read; they’re are very short, at least the first ones, later on they have more pages, which is great news. I wasn’t aware of this series growing up but I’m glad I gave it a chance this year.
For other challenges or things I want to accomplish in 2017, go the challenges.
