Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
It’s an awkward title but bear with me. This week’s TTT them is FREEBIE, which is kind of a nightmare for me because I suck at coming up with topics, but I came up with something!
Here are my favorite last-books-in-a-series. Books that managed to maintain the awesomeness that was the previous books in the series and to give their readers a worthy ending. I won’t give you any spoilers for the series, don’t worry.
1. The Hero of Ages (Mistborn #3) by Brandon Sanderson
I didn’t know how the Mistborn trilogy could ever end, but The Hero of Ages pulled off a surprising, but satisfying (and heart-wrenching) ending. (My review of the series here.)
2. The Sweet Far Thing (Gemma Doyle #3) by Libba Bray
I haven’t read this book in ages, but I remember bawling at the end (so much that someone actually asked me if I was okay). I love this series a lot and the ending totally did it justice.
3. Their Fractured Light (Starbound #3) by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
AHHHH!!!! The ending of this series saw all of my favorite characters unite in an epic battle against evil and it was AMAZING. (My review here.)
4. The Raven King (The Raven Cycle #4) by Maggie Stiefvater
SO GOOD. So painful. So perfect. (My review here.)
5. United We Spy (Gallagher Girls #6) by Ally Carter
These books are my comfort books. I read them during finals, or whenever I need a pick-me-up. Having to see the series end was painful, but Ally Carter wrapped it up in a way that put a smile on my face. (My review for the series here.)
6. Monsters of Men (Chaos Walking #3) by Patrick Ness
As you can tell from the cover, this isn’t exactly a happy book. But it wasn’t a happy series, and this book blew me away with the character and plot development.
7. Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna #3) by Stephanie Perkins
Anna and the French Kiss will always be my favorite book in the series, but I loved Isla and the Happily Ever After for bringing us back to the beginning while spinning a new story of love and self-discovery. (My review here.)
Bonus: Books That Better End My Favorite Series Well
8. The Rose and the Dagger (TWATD #2) by Renée Ahdieh
I’m about to start this and I’m TERRIFIED. I know that it’s going to break my heart…I just hope that it puts it back together as well. 🙂
9. Calamity (Reckoners #3) by Brandon Sanderson
Unfortunately, I’ve heard mixed reviews for this book, but I still hope that it delivers a satisfying ending to what has been an action-packed adventure so far.
10. Always and Forever Lara Jean (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before #3) by Jenny Han
I am conflicted as to whether this story even needs a third book, so I hope that Jenny Han does her story justice with it. I’m ready to see more Lara Jean and Peter K, and I trust that there will be lots of swoony and adorably awkward scenes for me to fall in love with.
