So, the best and worst books to end a series...
1. United We Spy by Ally Carter
UWS has been appearing on my blog a lot lately, but IT WAS SO GOOD.
2. Wish You Were Eyre by Heather Vogel Frederick
I'm sad that MDBC had to end, but I couldn't have asked for a better book. I can still remember when I thought Pies & Prejudice was the last and then I found out Heather was writing two more to the series!
3. Princess of the Silver Woods by Jessica Day George
Sure, it was a bummer that Jessica decided to only write three books in the series, but I enjoyed how it ended. Silver Woods wrapped up a lot and added some new, fun elements.
4. Into the Gauntlet by Margaret Peterson Haddix
There were so many questions left unanswered and that frustrated me at first, but this was an amazing conclusion to the first 39 Clues series.
5. Staying Together by Ann M. Martin
The Main Street series was one of my favorites as a tween. The characters had realistic flaws, and the plotline for Staying Together was great.
6. Ciao by Melody Carlson
I absolutely loved the way Melody wrapped up the On the Runway series, although I really wish she would've written more. Maybe, hopefully, she'll revisit Erin and Paige at a later date? :) A girl can hope...
7. Famous by Jessica Burkhart
In all honesty, I haven't enjoyed the Canterwood books with Lauren as the protagonist. I miss Sasha, and Lauren's books are just weak in general with too many cliffhangers at the end of chapters. Famous introduced a new important character, something that really shouldn't be done in a series' final book.
8. The Last Hope by Erin Hunter
I didn't enjoy how the Erins wrapped up the fourth Warriors series. So many deaths seemed like cop-outs, and the powers just got too extreme and fake (for a series about talking cats).
9. Day of Doom by David Baldacci
Whereas I liked Into the Gauntlet, Day of Doom was awful. The dialogue was so cheesy. So many plot points were let-downs. And for a book series that was already a bit unrealistic, this one was just outrageously unrealistic.
10. Reached by Ally Condie
I liked Matched. Crossed was okay-ish. But Reached was just... blah. It stretched on for too long and nothing exciting happened.
