Hello! Today I am going to be talking about the book series that I finished in 2021! It is actually going to be quite a short post, because it turns out I did not finish as many as I initially thought. However, tomorrow I am going to be talking about all of the series that I started in 2021 so check that out tomorrow!
On the list today, though, it is book series I finished this year. This does not count the book series that I reread this year otherwise The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare and A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas would also be on this list. But I wanted to keep this to book series I completed this year!
Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
And kicking off this post (and the year of 2021) I finished Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas. I read almost this whole series in January 2021 – I was so close, but didn’t manage to finish Kingdom of Ash until February. If you have followed me since then, you may remember how I hated the Throne of Glass series for so long. I couldn’t understand the hype. I read the first three and a half books a few years ago, didn’t like them and actually got rid of my copies. But, this year I decided to try again and I still struggled with the first couple of books but after that I loved the series so much. I think because I am used to Maas’ more mature writing style, reading her debut novel was a struggle. But I am so glad that I finally read this series. I have a Discussion Post up for a few of the novels (I never did finish writing my posts up for the later books, woops), so if you want my full thoughts you can read them here:
The Brown Sisters Trilogy by Talia Hibbert
This is the only book series that I started and finished in 2021! And on top of that Talia Hibbert was a new author to me. I just could not put this series down and absolutely devoured it back in July and I know for certain that I read the last book (Act Your Age, Eve Brown) in one sitting and I am sure the others I did too. But it was such a great time, sitting out in the garden and reading. I love Talia Hibbert’s writing style and it is the perfect escapism. I can’t wait to read more from her in 2022.
The Wayward Children by Seanan McGuire
This is the only book series that technically isn’t finished. However, I am as up to date with this series that I can be! For ages, I felt like I would never catch up with this series because there are so many books. But this year I managed to catch up, which is really exciting! I had a hard time enjoying this series at the beginning, but I think the later books are so much better. I cannot wait for the new book next month.
And that is it! Did you have more luck than me in 2021 at finishing book series?
