Top 10 Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. You can see all the topics here.
I had this issue a few weeks ago with the Best Sequels Ever topic. In the past I haven’t read that many books that are part of a series so it’s hard for me to come up with titles for these weeks. But, I love participating in the Top 10 Tuesday meme so I would try my best.
1. Mockingjay: Seriously, I was ok that Suzanne Collins killed like 90% of the characters off (especially Prim, god I hated Prim), but then she had to go and write that damn epilogue. Come on, Suzanne. You wrote this great serious and then you end it with a cheesy and totally unnecessary epilogue? You cannot be serious.
2. Entwined with You: This series lost me after the second book, it was just terrible, but I still wanted to know how it ended so I got the third and final book from the library. The problem? It wasn’t the final book!! The closer and closer I got to the end I was wondering how Sylvia Day was going to wrap everything up. Answer: write another book. Seriously lame. (My review)
3. This Girl: I thought Slammed was a pretty good book, I didn’t care for Point of Retreat at all, but I did want to know how to all wrapped up. I get that this is a retelling of the story through Will’s eyes, but I still found it disappointing. I learned nothing new about the characters or their story with this one and to me that made it a waste of time. (My review)
4. We’ll Always Have Summer: I didn’t love any of the books in this series, but they were entertaining enough considering I loathed the main character. But the end of this one had me shaking my head. It was like there were three books that were red herrings until like 10 pages before the end. It just seemed like an incredibly strange way to tell a love story.
5. Sisterhood Everlasting: I’ll admit that the part of me that never wants to walk away from characters loved that I got a look at the lives of characters I grew up with long after the series ended, but, honestly, I think it would have been better to leave the girls in college. The series wasn’t always happy, but I also don’t think it deserved such a melodramatic, sad ending.
6. Mini Shopaholic: Sometimes, no matter how much you’ll miss the characters or how much money the series is making you, you just have to walk away. I thought the baby one was the last Shopaholic book, but I had to check on Goodreads to make sure. In my mind Sophie Kinsella should have just stopped after Becky and Luke got married, even though I didn’t mind the sister book, but things got seriously bad after that.
Ok, I think six is the best I’m going to do. What are your worst series enders?
