TGIF is an awesome feature hosted by GReads! which I keep meaning to take part in but forgetting or not having time for, in which bloggers answer a question. This week marks my debut.
This week's question is:
Book Series Finales: Which book, from any series has been your favorite ending? What about your least favorite ending?
Two for me – firstly, the one which is probably going to be a fairly common pick.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling – It somehow managed to tie up virtually all of the loose ends without ever feeling like it was JUST tying up the loose ends. A truly thrilling fantasy which capped a superb series.
The Rebel Prince by Celine Kiernan – The best epic fantasy of recent years has a perfectly fitting ending. Overwhelmingly sad in places, this one is hugely thought-provoking and raises tons of moral questions, as well as being massively exciting and featuring some wonderful characters.
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins – Ugh, ugh, UGH. I think it’s a very brave ending in many ways, but it’s cataclysmically horrible. I enjoyed Catching Fire but wish I’d stopped reading after the first book, because this ending spoils the trilogy as a whole for me.
The Hidden by Jessica Verday – I really enjoyed books one and two in this series but it’s a particular type of ending which I can’t stand. (To be fair, I don’t think this is so much a bad ending, it’s more of a personal preference.)
