In yesterday’s post, I shared all of the series I started in 2021, and there were many! This list will be much shorter because I am terrible at finishing series!
I have The Kiss Quotient series to thank for making me fall in love with romance again, so I will always have a special place in my heart for this series and for Helen Hoang in general. I love each and every book for different reasons, though The Bride Test is definitely my favourite. Each of the books is super steamy, the characters have amazing chemistry, and there is great representation and discussions throughout. I cannot wait to see what Helen Hoang writes next!
Raybearer is one of my top five books of all time and Redemptor did not disappoint. To me, this duology is close to perfect and one I will continue to recommend. I really hope that Jordan Ifueko is working on something new!
I thought that Serpent & Dove was fun and I loved the banter between the characters, but the series just went downhill from there. I honestly recommend reading the first book as if it were a standalone and I would not have continued on with the series if I were not reading them for a buddy read.
Unlike with Serpent & Dove, I think Dumplin‘ is a series that just got better and better as the books went one and Pumpkin ended up being on of my favourite YA contemporary novels! I love Julie Murphy’s characters and how they feel like real teenagers.
Abby Jimenez has quickly become my favourite romance author and Life’s Too Short solidified that for me. There is so much depth to her stories and her characters always feel so authentic and they go through real-life issues while also falling in love. I have already read her 2022 release, which is the start of a new series, and it was so fantastic!
I am so sad that The Brown Sisters series is over! I loved these sisters and their love interests. I go back and forth on whether Take a Hint or Act Yoru Age is my favourite. I think I relate to Eve the most but I just adored Zaf from Take a Hint. A great series overall and it deserves all of the hype that it gets!
So, I finished six series in 2021, which isn’t terrible. I think it is better than I did in years past! What is the best series you finished this year?
