Series I Read in 2021

After realizing that I had a lot of authors on repeat this year, I noticed that was partly due to the fact that I made my way through a number of series. Some of these were already on my physical TBR, which is what I’ve been trying stay focused on until I work my way through all the unread books I own, but a couple of these were just too good to put on hold.

Here are all the series I finished reading this year:

The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

One of the most well known fantasy stories, both for readers and movie-goers. This was my first time reading these books, and I really enjoyed them. I’m still not finished watching the films though…

The Fellowship of the Ring
The Two Towers
The Return of the King

Little Blue Envelopes Series by Maureen Johnson

I think reading this series finished off any YA contemporaries that had been sitting unread on my shelves. It was recommended to me years ago, and I enjoyed finally getting around to reading it.

13 Little Blue Envelopes
The Last Little Blue Envelope

The Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells

I read through all of the current novellas and novel in this sci-fi series, all rather close together, and I’m glad to know that there are more installments planned for the future.

All Systems Red
Artificial Condition
Rogue Protocol
Exit Strategy
Network Effect
Fugitive Telemetry

The Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb

I’m currently reading the third book and definitely enjoying this interesting fantasy series. There are a number of other series set in this world following this particular trilogy, and I plan to check them out in the future, but maybe I’ll work on my physical TBR some more first.

Assassin’s Apprentice
Royal Assassin
Assassin’s Quest

Gentleman Bastard Series by Scott Lynch

I started this series at the end of 2020 with the first book, The Lies of Locke Lamora, then caught up this year with the other two books. The fourth book has yet to be released, but I’m looking forward to reading it when it is. I maybe won’t wait to catch up on my physical TBR for that one.

Red Seas Under Read Skies
The Republic of Thieves

In addition to all the series I finished, or at least caught up on, I did read the first installment of a few other series, but I just want to mention one of them. This is the only other series I started that I definitely plan on continuing, hopefully very soon.

The Broken Empire by Mark Lawrence

Prince of Thorns

Did you read any great series this year?
