Series I Want to Finish in 2019 (#seriesTF2019)

#SeriesTf2019 is a reading challenge created by Anna from Reader and Proud. I wanted to join in because it seemed like a fun way to hit some of the reading goals I set for myself earlier this year.


The goal for the challenge is to complete series; it does not matter if you only have one book left or ten, the important thing is to finish them in 2019. Similarly, the amount of series you’re aiming to finish is not important; I’d like this challenge to be as chill as possible so as long as you try to read and complete more series, you’re already a winner!

The challenge will run from January 1st to December 31st and you can join at any point. ARCs do count for the challenge, as well as books published in 2019. You can also include comic books and graphic novels. Again, the only rule is to complete the series in 2019.


  • The Dark Tower Series by Stephen King (4/8 books completed)

The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower, #1)The Drawing of the Three (The Dark Tower, #2)The Waste Lands (The Dark Tower, #3)

Wizard and Glass (The Dark Tower, #4)Wolves of the Calla (The Dark Tower, #5)Song of Susannah (The Dark Tower, #6)

The Dark Tower (The Dark Tower, #7)The Wind Through the Keyhole (The Dark Tower, #4.5)

Books to read in 2019: Wolves of the Calla, Song of Susannah, The Dark Tower, Wind Through the Keyhole

This was the series that made me want to do this challenge to begin with. I charged through the first three books in 2018 but Wizard and Glass had me pumping the brakes. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it a lot (and gave it 4 stars) but it was a 1,000+ page flashback. After that I had a hard time getting back into the main plot line. Now, I feel it’s been long enough and I’m ready to finish it!

  • The Inheritance Cycle by Chris Paolini (1/4 books completed)

Books to read in 2019: Eldest, Brisingr, Inheritance

I read Eragon in January of 2018 with my wonderful friend Soraia from @areaderslife3. She and I have been meaning to finish the series for a while now and 2019 seems like a good year for achieving reading goals.

  • To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han (0/3 books completed)

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)P.S. I Still Love You (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #2)Always and Forever, Lara Jean (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #3)

Books to read in 2019: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, P.S. I Still Love You, Always and Forever Lara Jean

I don’t usually go for YA contemporary, much less YA contemporary romance but 2019 is gonna be the year of branching out for me. I’ve heard good things about this series from opinions I trust and none of the books are terribly long.

  • Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (3/8 books completed)

The Assassin's Blade (Throne of Glass, #0.1-0.5)Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass, #2)

Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass, #3)Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass, #4)Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass, #5)

Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass, #6)Kingdom of Ash (Throne of Glass, #7)

Books to read in 2019: Heir of Fire, Queen of Shadows, Empire of Storms, Tower of Dawn, Kingdom of Ash

Once upon a time I was caught up with this series up to the most recent release…back when the most recent release was Assassin’s Blade and there were only two books out other than that one. Clearly I have some catching up to do. I read the ACOTAR trilogy in 2018 and had a great time posting my live reactions to all three books on my Instagram stories. I had a number of requests to do the same for this series and so that is my intention. I plan to reread both Throne of Glass (for the third time) and Crown of Midnight since it’s been so long.

  • The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

Books to read in 2019: The Raven Boys, The Dream Thieves, Blue Lily, Lily Blue, The Raven King

Stiefvater’s The Scorpio Races is one of my all time favorite books and I had such a blast reading The Wolves of Mery Falls trilogy. I figure this series has been a long time coming and I’m very much looking forward to diving in at some point this year.

Those are the series currently at the top of my TBR. Are there any series you plan to finish this year? Are there any I should add to my list?

Let me know in the comments, and as always, thanks for reading!

  1. I hope you get to finish Dark Tower then, since it’s your priority. I really love the Lara Jean trilogy and I hope you do too. Have you seen the movie?
    I also want to finish the Raven Cycle series but I onl have the last one to read.
    Good luck with these and thanks for sharing your TBR 😉

    1. Thank you so much for making this challenge! I think it’ll be a huge help and a big motivator! I haven’t watch the Lara Jean movie just yet, it think I’m going to save it as a reward for finishing the book. Did you like it?

    1. Thank you so much! The Raven Cycle is probably the one I’ve heard the most amazing things about so I’m really looking forward to that series in particular! I’m actually putting together a book club with a friend of mine for Throne of Glass book 1! We start on Jan 28 (short notice, sorry!) But if you’d like to join us I’d be happy to add you to the group! 💕

      1. Great!! I’ll add you to the group chat on Instagram! We are going to set an end date (still to be decided at the moment) so that everyone can read at their own pace, and once we’re all finished we’re going to have a discussion about it! I don’t think it’s necessary to read the prequels but they do add a bit more flavor to the protagonists characters and some context to a particular character that gets mentioned a couple times in passing in the first couple books.
