This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic with the Broke and the Bookish is the top ten best/worst series endings.
I do read series, but on looking at the topic today, I realize that I haven’t read a whole whack of them. I mean, I read all of the kids series as a kid and teenager, but they don’t really end as much as keep on going and going, so endings, from what I remember weren’t really overwhelmingly definite, for the most part. The list is going to be short.
- Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. Some people hate it, some love it. I like the actual ending. I didn’t love the entire book as much as the first two, nor did I love some of the twists in the plot, but I do love the general outcome.
- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows by J.K. Rowling. Again, some of the twists in the plot threw me off, but that is what makes life interesting. I do like how everything was tied in and wrapped up by the end.
- Something Blue by Emily Giffin. I don’t know if I would call it the end of a series, but it kind of is. I liked seeing things from the other side of the story and how things settled in the longer run.
- Green by Ted Dekker. I loved The Circle series overall. I liked this book, but I struggled with the book and its ties to both worlds and how it ended overall. I hate endless loops. But that being said, I didn’t quite love the alternate ending either.
- Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer. I mock the series, but I did read it entirely and found it intesting in some ways. The ending was ridiculous, though. Especially the whole Jacob and spawn thing. Ick.
Endings I am looking forward to:
- Allegiant by Veronica Roth. I am super pumped for this book. Super pumped.
I clearly need to read more series. Clearly.
