9 Series I finished in 2020

This year, I think, was the year for finishing series. I’ve finished way more series than I normally do, and I’ve started way less series than typical. Thank goodness. A few of these are series that I started years ago and am just now getting around to finish and dang did it feel good to cross these off of my list. The only thing that I think feels better is a good series unhaul. Some of these, I’ve started this year and some of them aren’t finished as a whole series yet. I plan to continue my series-finishing streak in 2021 – look out for my Series I Plan to Finish post, coming soon!

Well Met, Jen Deluca

I started this series this year and I am so glad that I did. I have always wanted to go to a Renaissance faire and have just never gotten around to it. This year was the year that I was going to make that happen. Unfortunately, this year didn’t go to plan in that regard but this series gave me all the right vibes in the mean time. I plan to continue this series with Well Matched in 2021.

  2. Well Played

The Bromance Book Club, Lyssa Kay Adams

This series, y’all. THIS SERIES. I love it. 10/10 would recommend. This friend group is hilarious, and the books themselves are sometimes heart wrenching but mostly fun. This series is so, so fun. And it’s also one that I can’t wait to continue in 2021 with Isn’t It Bromantic?

  1. The Bromance Book Club
  2. Undercover Bromance
  3. Crazy Stupid Bromance

Rebel Belle, Rachel Hawkins

This series I started way back when it was first released in… 2014. Wow! Six–almost seven–whole years ago. I had so much fun with Rebel Belle and unfortunately the next two in the trilogy didn’t live up to the first book for me, but oh my goodness did I have fun diving back into this world.

  1. Rebel Belle
  2. Miss Mayhem
  3. Lady Renegades

Villains: Vicious and Vengeful by V.E. Schwab

This series is beloved by many, and I can most definitely see why. The first book kept me on the edge of my seat and I had to know what was going to happen next. I just didn’t connect with the text the way many others have. And y’all I really thought that this duology was going too be 5 stars.

  1. Vicious
  2. Vengeful

Monsters of Verity, Victoria Schwab

Once again, I wanted so badly to five star this series. The first book was awesome. I loved the writing style, the foiling and the lyricism. Maybe it had just been too long since stepping into the world that I disconnected from it. Overall, the series was enjoyable and I did absolutely adore the way that the characters connected. Schwab is so, so talented. However, something about the second book just didn’t land right for me.

This Savage Song ★★★★

Our Dark Duet ★★★

Scythe, Neal Shusterman

With the guidance of two close friends I picked up Scythe for a buddy read and just could not put it down. Then, immediately chain read Thunderhead and The Toll with them as well. This series was awesome, un-put-down-able. The stakes were high and the story was well executed. I am so glad for bookish friends.

  1. Scythe
  2. Thunderhead
  3. The Toll

The Illuminae Files, Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

  1. Illuminae
  2. Gemina
  3. Obsidio

The Summer Series, Jenny Han

This series is wrapped in heavy nostalgia for me – almost suffocated with it, actually. And, as much as I enjoyed this read I can’t in good conscious not mention some of the problematic content. This series does include slurs (LGBTQ+ slurs, and use of the ‘r’ word) which do absolutely nothing for the story itself. The series as a whole would have been much better without the use of these words.

  1. The Summer I Turned Pretty
  2. It’s Not Summer Without You
  3. We’ll Always Have Summer

The Brown Sisters, Talia Hibbert

This series was so good y’all! I wish I would’ve picked it up sooner, but I am glad that I read them basically back to back. These sisters are so laugh out loud funny, and the stories genuinely put me in a better mood. I can’t wait for the third installment, Act Your Age, Eve Brown, set to release in 2021!

  1. Get a Life, Chloe Brown
  2. Take a Hint, Dani Brown
