Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish.
Confession time: I rarely make it through a whole series. It’s just that I lose interest, or, hell, I don’t know why. I doubt I’ve finished ten series all together, let alone ten best or worst. So I’m adapting this a little. I’ve broken my list into three categories. My Favorite Series Enders, Mediocre Series Enders, and Series Enders I’m Eagerly Anticipating. I haven’t read any terrible series enders, probably because I didn’t like the series enough to stick with it.
In no particular order . . .
Favorite Series Enders
1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
You knew this would be on here, right? I just can’t imagine this series ending any other way, and although I was so sad upon finishing this book for the first time (two days after the release day!) I was also content.
2. The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman
This book! I had all the feels, and I know my heart broke there at the end for Lyra and Will. If you haven’t read the His Dark Materials series, you are missing out.
3. The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan
Percy is the best, right?
4. City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
Okay, so I classify this as a series ender, and then the next three books as sort of another series. Anyway, I think this was a great conclusion.
Mediocre Series Enders
(These are series enders that were okay. Not detestable, but I wasn’t madly in love)
5. Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer
Yeah, so I think we can all agree that BD has some issues. I’m not saying that I hated it at all, though. I’m not on the Twilight-hater bandwagon. But I wasn’t a big fan of the middle section from Jacob’s POV. I mean, it’s Bella’s story, so why was Jacob telling it for a little bit?
6. Princess of the Silver Woods by Jessica Day George
I love JDG, and fairytale retellings, but this book was just meh for me.
Series Enders I’m Eagerly Anticipating
*Note: Covers haven’t been released for these two, yet.*
7. Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Release Date: Mid 2014
I love me some Daemon Black and his snarky attitude.
8. Winter by Marissa Meyer
Release Date: 2015
Yeah, I’ve got a long wait for this one, but oh my gosh, I love this series so much!
