2024 Goals: series I’d like to finish (and a peek at my other ongoing series)

December 28, 2023

Let’s look at the 10 series I hope to finish in 2024!

Last year, I made a list of series I wanted to finish in 2023, which you can see here. While I didn’t finish that entire list, I made really good progress on it and it was super motivational! I decided to do the same thing for 2024, though this year’s a little bit different because I added two series I haven’t started yet, plus I included the leftover series from 2023’s list. Let’s go!

fallen empire

I still need to read…
– Dragon Unleashed
– Raven Unveiled

This one is leftover from last year. Misty and I buddy read a different Grace Draven book recently and both loved it, so we’re planning on buddy reading this series sometime in 2024, which works out great since I wanted to re-read the first book before continuing anyway!

the aurora cycle

I still need to read…
– Aurora Burning
– Aurora’s End

This is another leftover series that I’m planning on buddy reading with Misty next year, and I think we’re starting over from book 1, too.

nevernight chronicle

I still need to read…
– Darkdawn

Another leftover series Misty and I are buddy reading! I want to re-start this series, too. It’s been too long since I read the first 2 books!

the lunar chronicles

I still need to read…
– Stars Above

I think finishing this series has been on mine and Misty’s buddy read list the longest out of all of our planned buddy reads! 😂It’s another one leftover from ’23.

the hunger games

I still need to read…
– The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes

I might re-read the whole series, but I haven’t decided yet. I just know I definitely want to read the prequel soon!

the mortal instruments

I still need to read…
City of Heavenly Fire

I’ve been putting off finishing this series for WAY too long. I don’t think I’ll re-read the first 5 or anything, but I do need to look up some recaps.


I still need to read…
– Finale

I wasn’t sure I would ever get around to picking this series back up because I didn’t love the first book when it released, but I hear so many people raving about her newer series that it makes me want to give this one another chance and then read the next series too!

wraith kings

I still need to read…
Night Tide (1.5)
– Lover of Thorns and Holy Gods (1.6)
– Eidolon
– In the Darkest Midnight (2.5)
– A Wilderness of Glass (2.7)
– The Ippos King
– Black Hellebore (3.1)
– A Memory of Summer (3.5)

This is the Grace Draven series that Misty and I started a few weeks ago. I haven’t asked Misty yet if we’re buddy reading all the novellas too, but I know we’re at least reading the main books together! I think most of the novellas are less than 100 pages each, so I’m pretty sure we will.

the war of lost hearts

I still need to read…
Ashen Son (0.5)
– Daughter of No Worlds
– Children of Fallen Gods
– Mother of Death & Dawn

This is one of the “new to me” series on the list! I read the Nyaxia books with Misty earlier this year and we LOVED them, so we’re going to check this series out too!


I still need to read…
– Brackenbeast
– Glassheart

I’ve bought all 3 of these books but haven’t started the series yet, and I love spooky middle-grade books, so I’d love to binge this series sometime in 2024.

other series in progress

I have sooo many series in progress! I updated this list recently and removed a few series that I no longer care about finishing, but this list isn’t much shorter than it was in last year’s post.

Just a horror aficionado/geek girl trying to juggle motherhood, reading, blogging, gaming, and everyday life.

    1. I am so not looking forward to putting my series post together. I laughed at how many times you said me and you were buddy reading something. Also I’m down to read the novellas of that Grace Draven series if I can get them.

    1. Good luck with your series goals! I’m also hoping to work on some series (and manga) in the new year 😊 I hope you enjoy Thirteens! It’s such a great spooky MG series 🥰 Sadly I bought the first two books in paperback, but the last one is only available in hardcover, so I haven’t read it yet!
