Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme, hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week we’re given a topic to create a Top Ten list. This week the list is Top Ten Best/Worst Series Enders.
Now I have a problem with this list. I am in the middle of so many series. I haven’t finished many series, so it’s going to take quite some time to put this list together. It has inspired me to try and get around to finishing some of the series I’ve started though, so that’s a positive thing!
Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows– J.K Rowling– I really didn’t like the epilogue, but I didn’t want to label it as one of the worst series enders, because aside from the epilogue I think it ended brilliantly. Just how I wanted it to.
Specials- Scott Westerfeld- Specials was one my favourite books out of the Uglies trilogy. I’m not including Extras. Conveniently forgetting about that book otherwise it would be in the worst series enders section.
Meridon– Philippa Gregory– I have a lot of love for Philippa Gregory. I loved The Wideacre Trilogy and this for me, was a brilliant ending!
Mini Shopaholic– Sophie Kinsella– I really love the Shopaholic series. I’m not sure if this one is the last in the series, but she hasn’t brought one out for a while. So I’m going with it!
Boundless– Cynthia Hand– I imagine for some people, this book is going to be on their worst series enders section. I think it really depends what ‘team’ you’re on. But for me, I ADORED Boundless, so it’s well worthy of a place of my best series enders list.
Somewhere in the middle:
Mockingjay- Suzanne Collins– This book falls somewhere in-between best and worst. I loved aspects of it and hated aspects of it. I found it a lot slower than the first two books.
Breaking Dawn– Stephenie Meyer– I know that the Twilight series isn’t the most outstanding piece of literature, but for what it is, I think the final book in the series was okay. Not mind-blowing, but definitely not as awful as I was expecting, given some of the reviews.
The Summer Garden– Paullina Simons- The Bronze Horseman series had two amazing books. I was left slightly disappointed with this one. I ended up hating a character I loved for the most part of the book!
The Other Queen– Philippa Gregory- I loved the Tudor series so much but I was left disappointed with this book, which is such a shame!
I’m throwing back to my childhood with the next book:
Charlie and The Great Glass Elevator– Roald Dahl– I was so disappointed with this book as a child. I think Charlie and The Chocolate Factory is such a magical book that anything that followed was bound to be a disappointment.
Please feel free to leave a link to your Top Ten posts. I’m intrigued to see what series you have loved and/or disliked!
