Top Ten Best/Worst Series Endings



1. Rise: This was by far the worst ending to any series I have read so far. Honestly to me this wasn’t an ending, it was a re-telling of the first book, with a cliffhanger. No epilogue.


2. Requiem: I know I’m going to get a lot of flack for this one, and I actually enjoyed this book, but the end of the book left much to be desired in my eyes. I feel like the book just ended, like the series could have been finished better.


3. Specials: Again another book that just ended, I guess I’m the type of person who likes and epilogue, something to let me know where the characters ended up. Did the main couple stay together, that kind of thing, and with this because I had no interest in reading the fourth book, which I also heard wasn’t really about the main couple or that good, I have no idea what happened after this ended, abruptly.


4. Reached: Again another book that left me wanting more. Honestly it’s been so long since I’ve read it, but I do know that the second book in the series disappointed me greatly, so I had high hopes for Reached, and was a little let down at the end.


These are a few of the series enders that I truly enjoyed.

  1. I’ve seen so many people dislike Requiem this week that I’m actually very nervous to read it! I don’t always like an epilogue, but sometimes it’s nice to know where the characters are.

  2. Requiem is coming up a lot in today’s TTT posts. I keep meaning to read the Delirium series at some point but I’ve heard the ending of Requiem is left slightly loose so I’m not so sure now.

  3. I haven’t read most of these books, but I agree with you on the ending. When everything’s completely up in the air, it leaves you hanging. I don’t need to see the characters dying of old age in their beds, but I need at least a hint of the future.

  4. I almost put GATES OF PARADISE on my list. I was sad to see the series go (though I had fallen out of it; it calls for a reread), but it did end okay. It gave some closure, but also left it open enough for the spin-offish series Cruz is doing in Adult. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I forgot about Specials. Although, I tend to forget about the Uglies series altogether. And I never managed to get past Matched. I think it was overshadowed by Divergent (I bought them both at the same time).
