Top Ten Best/Worst Series Enders

Another Tuesday, another list. This week the list is top ten best/worst series enders. I only found six, because apparently I don’t finish series. I should really do something about that. So these are the six that I could come up with. As always this meme is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter) by J.K. Rowling
Yeah, I can’t do this list without Harry Potter. I read Harry Potter from when the first book came out, because my mother is awesome. I basically spent ten-ish years of my life waiting for the next book, and then finally it came and it was awesome. I choose to ignore the epilogue, it bugged me a bit, couldn’t it just have ended? It would have been great. I loved it though. I cried so much. Oh Fred, and Dobby, oh the feels.

A Memory of Light (Wheel of Time) by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson
I am a huge fan of Wheel of Time, and I was pretty much distraught when I heard Jordan died, and I had some very unpleasant thoughts, in that I was angry with Jordan for dying. Then Brandon Sanderson came and saved the day, and it was awesome! It wrapped up the series, it made me cry so hard. It had the longest chapter of all time, all was good.

Kushiel’s Avatar (Kushiel’s legacy, Phedre’s trilogy) by Jacqueline Carey
Yes, this book was amazing. The whole series is amazing, and I feel like Carey was constantly trying to outdo herself in creepiness and horribleness. And the last book really goes all out in being friggin’ disgusting. It’s really amazing, it wraps up the series, it leaves enough questions for the next series.

Mostly Harmless (Hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy) by Douglas Adams
I can’t honestly say I remember everything from this book, it’s a while since I read it. I seem to remember a whole host of crazy storylines coming together in one big, crazy bang. Arthur gets moanier for every book, Ford continues being delightful, Zaphod’s a complete nutcase, it’s all good.

The Amber Spyglass (His Dark Materials) by Philip Pullman
It all started out so well. Lyra was awesome in the beginning. Then she met Will and it all went to hell. She became all girly-girly and dependent on Will. The last book was too long, the religion aspect became too heavy handed. Miss Coulter also changed completely, that was annoying. It just really bugged me.

The Last Battle (Chronicles of Narnia) by C.S. Lewis. SPOILER!
There is one thing about this book that basically ruined it for me. I loved Narnia so much. And then Lewis decided to not let Susan into heaven. And it took me a very long time to even realize that Aslan’s kingdom was Heaven, cause I’m slow. Anyway, Susan isn’t allowed to go to Aslan’s kingdom because she chose to get over Narnia, which really pissed me off. I feel like Susan made a logical choice. She wasn’t allowed to go back so she decided to put Narnia behind her and go on with her life. And therefore she is not allowed to go to Heaven with her brothers and sister when they die. It is horrible, and cruel and it made me furious, so I hated it. GAH.
