Top Ten Tuesday--Best/Worst Series Enders

Aaaagh...today's Top Ten Tuesday is another question revolving around series.  And if you remember, I have a very hard time finishing series!  I just get caught up in reading so many other books that it's hard for me to stick through a series.  So I think I will just give you my opinion of the series that I HAVE finished.

Today's question?  What are the best/worst series enders?
*Warning--possible spoilers ahead!

  • The Hunger Games--thumbs down.  Ok, I love this series, but so much happened in the last 50 pages of Mockingjay that it could've been another, better-developed book.  Katniss' goodbye to Gale was SO weak (and I'm totally Team Gale!) and Prim!  My sweet, sweet Prim that didn't survive...sigh.
  • The Maze Runner--thumbs down.  James Dashner, I want to kiss you and slap you for this series.  I love this series and yet so much is still unanswered for me.  And Teresa?!  Why did you kill off Teresa?!
  • Harry Potter--thumbs up.  I mean, is there really anything to criticize in this series?  Such a sweet ending that took my breath.
  • The Chronicles of Narnia--thumbs up.  Ok, probably not fair since this is my favorite series ever.  But I love the way that everything is wrapped up in the end.
  • Vampire Academy--meh.  I love the Rose/Dmitri story but felt like Rose's goodbye to Adrian was so weak.
  • Eve--thumbs down.  I didn't buy that Arden had gained so much power, and I'm still confused as to whether Caleb is still dead or alive.
Series I REALLY need to finish: Matched by Ally Condie, Across the Universe by Beth Revis, Alex Rider by Anthony Horowitz

Series I can't wait to have published endings: Divergent by Veronica Roth, Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi, Unwind by Neal Shusterman

So what about you?  How does your list compare?

Meet me back here tomorrow to see the fashion inspiration I'm sharing from the book Trafficked!


  1. Actually, you probably don't need to finished the Matched series. :/ Stop with Crossed - you'll thank me later.

    1. Haha...That's what I've heard...probably why I haven't read it yet!

  2. I loved The Chronicles of Narnia too =) It was one of the first chapter book series I read when I first really started to get into reading.

  3. What is a "dystology" anyway? How many books is Shusterman going to write in this series? Are you excited about the release of UnSouled this week?

    1. I can't wait for Unsouled! I'm assuming this is just a trilogy, but I don't know for sure.
