Don’t Go Breakin’ My Heart: Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday
Each week The Broke and the Bookish will post a new Top Ten list that at least one of their bloggers will answer. Everyone is welcome to join.

This week we are talking about the best and worst endings to series. Honestly I had trouble with this. I apparently start a lot of series but don’t finish them and the worst endings were even more difficult because I really don’t finish series which are going down hill. But here are the ones I came up with.

The Best
The Return of the King: Being theThird Part of the Lord of the Rings
Lord of the Rings: Return of the King by  J. R. R. Tolkien
Party tree replanted, Sam and Rosie, Frodo departs for the Undying Lands and sigh, perfect!

Black Heart (The Curse Workers)
Black Heart by Holly Black
The Big Score

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7)
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling
If we end before the awful Epilogue

Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices)
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
Get your cake and Eat it too

“Keep calling for me Viola.” Break my heart into a million pieces.

The Worst

The Amber Spyglass (His Dark Materials, Book 3) Publisher: Yearling
The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman
Hated every part of this and so much sadder because I love book one so much.

Breaking Dawn (The Twilight Saga, Book 4)
Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer
Does it matter that I hated all of them?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7)
