I’ve been trying hard to finish off series this year as there are so many I want to read but I was in the middle of quite a few and didn’t want to get muddled. So I thought this was a good time to look back at what series I have managed to complete so far in 2022!
Series I have completed so far this year are:
These Witches Don’t Burn duology by Isabel Sterling
These Violent Delights duology by Chloe Gong
The Ravens duology by Kass Morgan & Danielle Paige
Serpent & Dove series by Shelby Mahurin
Girls of Paper and Fire series by Natasha Ngan
Daughter of the Pirate King duology by Tricia Levenseller
The Shadow Game series by Amanda Foody
Malice duology by Heather Walter
Shadow & Bone series by Leigh Bardugo
I really enjoyed my reread of Shadow and Bone, I couldn’t really believe how short the book actually was and how quickly the plot unfolded. The only thing I am really missing is some more of the history of the Grisha’s and the different kinds. We get a little bit of an explanation but not enough for me to completely understand. It has been about 4/5 years now since I’ve read these books so I’ve forgotten a lot and I wasn’t given a lot to work with here. I think it’s easy to fall for the Darkling and I am still lowkey a stan but his shift when I first read these books really took me by surprise and I was here for it for sure! It’s a little unrealistic how quickly Alina believes Baghra but other than that I really enjoyed this book. Not quite a 5 star even though the nostalgia was high but this was thrilling, entertaining and everything I love about fantasy books!

The Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson was what got me back into reading after my party phase lol
Sooo I said I was going to be rereading the Stormlight Archives so I can finally get to Rhythm of War but I feel like I’m not really in any kind of rush to read it until the 5th book comes out as that will be the finale of the current storyline I believe. So once that books release is announced then I will start my reread. But for right now I kind of want to dive back into the Grishaverse. I haven’t read Rule of Wolves yet simply because I’m had a hard enough time remembering all of the characters for King of Scars and it’s been nearly two years so I have no chance right now. So I want to start with the original Shadow and Bony trilogy and I will just continue on from there until I get to Rule of Wolves and be refreshed and back up to date! I also haven’t watched the TV show yet so I think that will be a nice treat at the end of my reread.
