Finishing the first book in a series is exhilarating and often causes a panic if you’re left waiting months for the next book to come out. However, finishing the last book in a series is a different feeling all together. There’s this happiness of finally knowing the ending and a sadness that the stories are done.
So in looking back at 2014, I want to remember some of the notable book series that have ended.
