Top Ten Best/Worst Series Enders

I really like this topic, and I thought it would be hard after the best sequels ever from a couple weeks ago!  I decided to split the list, and do best and worst (with a slight twist for a couple of the worst series enders).  I’m not the best at finishing series, but for the ones I *do* manage to finish…some are great, and some aren’t.

Best:

  1. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins.  I feel like I’m in the minority for loving Mockingjay.  (Please don’t hate me!)  I get why people don’t like it, but I honestly can’t imagine the book ending any other way.
  2. The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa.  This book absolutely cemented my love of Ash, and I loved that he became mortal to be with Meghan.
  3. Boundless by Cynthia Hand.  Boundless is such an amazing end to the Unearthly trilogy!  I had such a big reaction to one part of the book, and I felt, like, all the feelings.
  4. With All My Soul by Rachel Vincent.  Parts of With All My Soul were so beautiful, and I really couldn’t ask for a better ending to the series.
  5. Out Of Breath by Rebecca Donovan.  I cried almost the entire time I was reading Out Of Breath, and I’m super glad things worked out for Emma.
  6. The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray.  I loved how the magical world fit with the real world, and everything came together for a great ending.
  7. Endlessly by Kiersten White.  Endlessly is another great series ender, and I can’t imagine the series ending any other way.  I feel like I’ve said that a lot, I’m glad things worked out for the characters, and I can’t help but wonder what sort of trouble Evie has gotten herself into!

Worst:

  1. Ruthless by Sara Shepard.  I know this isn’t the last book in the Pretty Little Liars series, but I just had to stop at Ruthless.  Even though I started out really liking this series, it got pretty repetitive by Ruthless.
  2. Crossed by Allie Condie.  I know this is the 2nd book in the trilogy, but as much as I wanted to know how things turned out, I just couldn’t after reading Crossed.
  3. Feedback by Robison Wells.  Feedback lost a lot of the creepiness that Variant had, and it didn’t feel like a sequel to me, since Variant worked so well on its own.

  1. I agree with you that Crossed was pretty horrible. I read Reached and it made my list of Worst endings. I was also really disappointed with Feedback. I felt like it opened up a whole can of worms at the end and he has no intention of writing another book to clear anything up.

  2. Don’t feel bad for being in the minority of people who like Mockingjay. I’m in the minority of Potterheads who don’t like Deathly Hallows. We’re all entitled to our reading sensibilities. Happy reading!
