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.
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 by Holly Black
The Big Score
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling
If we end before the awful Epilogue
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
Get your cake and Eat it too
Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness
“Keep calling for me Viola.” Break my heart into a million pieces.
The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman
Hated every part of this and so much sadder because I love book one so much.
Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer
Does it matter that I hated all of them?
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows with the epilogue
Really the epilogue was written for 12-year-old girls everywhere.
The Prophet of Yonwood (Book of Ember, #3) by Jeanne DuPrau
No fair sneaking a prequel in
Meridon (Wideacre, #3) by Philippa Gregory
My second bad series with a bad ending.
