Top 7 Series Finales/ Sequels of 2016 | Bookmas Day 7!

Like every other year I started a lot of series when I still had not finished other series this year. So it wasn’t too hard to compile this list. I’m pretty happy with the selection of sequels and finales I read this year but there are still soo many that I didn’t manage to get to.

In no particular order:

01 The Raven King (The Raven Cycle #4) by Maggie Stiefvater

This is a pretty well-known and popular series amongst the YA community. I picked the first book up on a whim last year and it quickly became a favourite of mine! So naturally I had to read the rest of the series! I loved the finale, it was amazing!

MY REVIEW OF THE RAVEN KING

02 Magnus Chase and The Hammer of Thor – Rick Riordan

I feel like I’ve mentioned this trilogy in soo many posts lately and it’s getting a bit ridiculous, I guess I just need to read the books!

Because I’ve mentioned these books soo often I don’t really need to explain why I want to read the novels. I’ve loved every book by Riordan that I’ve read so I don’t see why this series would be any different.

The Hammer of Thor (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, #2)

03 The Flash, Volume 9: Full Stop – Robert Venditti

I’ve only read the first 5 volumes of this series but now that the series is finished I plan on reading the rest of it in 2017. I am a big comic reader but tend to read more MARVEL but I do love this series. Barry Allen is a really interesting character so his adventures in and out of the Speed Force are really entertaining.

04 Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2) – Leigh Bardugo

With every book on this list except The Raven King, I have not read this, nor Six of Crows. As with all of the other books on this list I do plan on reading this next year. I have heard nothing but good things about this duology so i really can’t wait to pick up the novels next year!

05 A Gathering of Shadows – V.E. Schwab

I borrowed the first novel in this trilogy from the library a few months a go but never got around to reading it so hopefully I will be able to start it next year and then actually finish off the trilogy in 2017.

A Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic, #2)

06 A Million Worlds with You (Firebird #3) – Claudia Gray

I have actually read the first two novels in this triolgy and I’ll be honest I didn’t actually like them all that much. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed them enough to want to continue the trilogy but I like the books more for the plot than for the characters – the main character is unbearable annoying and the romance makes me sick (it’s too much for me).

07 Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection (The Cosmere) – Brandon Sanderson

I don’t know if this officially counts as a sequel but it’s part of a few of Sanderson’s different series so I’m counting it. This year I read the Mistborn trilogy and LOVED IT, I fell in love with Sanderson’s writing and the way he creates new worlds. In 2017 I plan on reading his Reckoners trilogy and The Stormlight Archive.
