Top Ten Tuesday: The Flawless and the Flawed

 




TOP BEST/WORST SERIES ENDINGS


Best


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Many beloved characters died and yet I still enjoyed the ending. It helped having a small epilogue. 


Boundless: Every character had his/her moment. And no questions were left unanswered.


Mockingjay: It was no fairy-tale ending where everyone lives happily ever after with all their problems solved. It was realistic. 


Shades of Earth: Exquisite finale with non-stop action. 



Worst 


Requiem: Filled with too much narration, the second point-of-view character had no action or climax whatsoever. And the end was just a big mess.



Rapture: We traveled non-stop in Passion, only to travel once again in Rapture. Although the last few pages did have an interesting twist, it still makes my worst list.


Son of Rosemary: Pretty much the worst ending ever. The rating on Goodreads is 2.46. Enough said.

  2. Thank you! Thank you! I was getting worried about SHADES OF EARTH. It's the only one I've got left in that series to read and I've seen it on a ton of worst lists today. Haha!

  3. Lots of Harry Potter! And Boundless for that matter! Never did read that one but I did read the first two as ARCs, they were on Netgalley and I had hoped the third one would pop up but it didn't and then I just didn't get around to it. Now my memories of what came to pass is long gone!

    Seeing a bit of Lauren Oliver's book. My sister still needs to read that one though and I haven't read the series myself.

    Surprised to see you place Mockingjay there! I remember lots of people saying they weren't too happy about the ending. Never was interested enough to read the series myself.

    Nice picks all around!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. Personally, I think that might be one of the reasons the series got dropped :s

  4. Yes to Shades of Earth! Boundless was awesome too, but it didn't quite make my list. I'm afraid we disagree about HP and Mockingjay, though, but Requiem made my worst list as well. And actually I really like how you label them as flawless and flawed rather than good or bad because really, those are better descriptions. Great list!

    1. Yeah, every book has something good and something bad. Perfection is impossible to accomplish.
