Ten Six Best/Worst Series Enders
(I bet you’ll be able to guess some of them…)
1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
Do I even need to explain this?! The ending is just… perfect. I know there are some people out there who weren’t happy with it (no idea why), but personally, I thought it was a great way to wrap up the series and settle Harry down. That boy needs a lot of rest after those crazy seventeen years he’s been through.
2. The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan
This is where I confess that I was waiting AGES for Annabeth to finally realize that Percy was the one. Gosh, I ship Percabeth so hard, and when that ending came around, it was all I could do NOT to swoon.
3. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Again, a lot of people seemed to find Mockingjay the worst book of the Hunger Games trilogy. Again, I digress. I think it was necessary for all the brutality and darkness this last book held. Dystopian worlds are built on misery and the lack of freedom — it’s only to be expected that violent and bloody things happen when you try to tear down a regime that has been around since before your mother was born. And sometimes, you lose the people you love. That’s life. It doesn’t care.
4. Wicked Kiss by Michelle Rowen
I didn’t really enjoy the first book, Dark Kiss, but I really liked the sequel because there was less stupid romance and more action! Plus, the characters came along really nicely.
5. Requiem by Lauren Oliver
I’ve been ranting a lot about Requiem, I’m sorry! Even though I enjoyed most of the story, the ending was absolute shit, so it’s going to fall into the “worst” category.
6. Feedback by Robison Wells
Variant wasn’t the perfect read, but I was actually looking forward to something more enlightening than what Feedback gave me. I mean, I guess some of my questions were answered, but not all, and I still don’t understand why a lot of the things that happened in the book happened. Oh, and the ending is kind of open as well, which does NOT sit well with me.

I have to admit that I have this horrible habit when it comes to finishing series. I tend to read the first book and leave the rest till the absolute latest, which is why I have several series enders on my shelf that I have not yet read, so I can’t include them here. Hench the pathetic TTT post for today. I’ll get to them soon. T_T
