With thanks to the Broke and the Bookish for hosting!

While constructing this list, I came to the realization that while I'm a serial series starter, I fail at commitment. 


Here are some favorites:


1. Of course. The camping trip went on a little long, but this book made me cry on three separate occasions. 

2. Forever a favorite.

3. Not what I expected, but extremely appropriate for the series.

4. Exactly what I wanted. A villain/anti-hero finds redemption.

5. The best relationships are only subtly hinted at in previous books.

6. Brb crying forever.

If I truly hated a series ending, I must've blocked it from my memory. Here are a couple I have mixed feelings about:

7. This left me mildly frustrated.

8. I read this when I was 8, and it messed me up. 

Bonus: This book will never be published and I will never have closure for the 9 books preceding  it:
I preordered this in 1998. *plays world's smallest violin*
Here's the original cover:
The '90's was a strange time.

Mockingjay really annoyed me. I felt like nothing would happen and then all of a sudden EVERYTHING would happen. Twas weird pacing.
And I love the newer cover for Strange Fate so much more than the original!

LOL - I'd totally forgotten about the Nightworld books! You're right -- where's my closure??? I did not like The Last Battle. My son and I just read all the Narnia books together this year, and we both found The Last Battle kind of depressing and weird. Should have stopped after The Silver Chair. Great list! And I'm always happy to see a Tamora Pierce shout-out. :)

I'm with you on the Narnia series as The Last Battle was...underwhelming. Real shame. Thanks for stopping by.
