Top Ten Tuesday: Best and Worst Endings

This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Links go to Goodreads. The topic this week is:

Top Ten Best/Worst Series Endings 

(I had to think about this one for a while because honestly I haven't finished nearly as many series as I'd like to)


Gone (Dream Catcher, #3)

1. Gone by Lisa McMann - I actually really enjoyed the first two books, but this one felt like a really long epilogue and the clipped sentences began to really annoy me.

The Death Cure (Maze Runner, #3)

2. The Death Cure by James Dashner - Way too many questions left unanswered here, and the love triangle was wrapped up very poorly.

Endings I Don't Care About Reading 

Reached (Matched, #3)

3. Reached by Ally Condie - I struggled to get through Matched, but I was willing to give the series another shot so I managed to read Crossed as well. I can honestly say I don't get the popularity these books have and doubt I will go back to it ever. 

Wolfsbane (Nightshade, #2)

4. Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer - The first one was just fine, honestly. But I got to the point where I simply could not stand the characters in the sequel, so I quit about halfway through.

I Am Number Four (Lorien Legacies, #1)

5. I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore - Certain aspect of this story were cool, but I just found the writing to be really dry and the characters very flat.

Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles, #1)

6. Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl - I probably would have given this book more of a chance if it was shorter, but thirty pages in I hated the writing and constantly had to remind myself that the narrator was a guy. 


Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3)

7. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins - I know a lot of people disliked the conclusion of this series, but personally I found it very realistic and enjoyed it quite a bit.

The Iron Knight (The Iron Fey, #4)

8. The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa - This is how you end a great series, people.

Spy Glass (Glass, #3)

9. Spy Glass by Maria V. Snyder - I definitely had my ups and downs with the Glass series, but the last one was the best by far.

Shadowfever (Fever, #5)

10. Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning - I probably mention these books way too often, but I can't get over how amazing the last installment was.

Endings That Will Most Likely Be Awesome

Ignite Me (Shatter Me, #3) Into the Still Blue (Under the Never Sky, #3) Evertrue (Everneath, #3) Ruin and Rising (The Grisha, #3)
