The end is nigh

A lot of books I read are part of series. YA especially is full of them. When I find a good one, I love a books series as you can really invest in the characters and have your own ideas on how things will pan out. I’m currently reading a few series and some are coming close to the end. I approach final books nervously – some you can tell who they will end and the pay off is good, others through a curve ball or don’t wrap things up well enough for you to feel fully satisfied. Regardless, I’m always impressed when an author creates a series as it’s hard work and if you get hooked and have to read everyone, it’s job well done for the writer.

These series are almost at an end for me :(:

  • The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
  • The Fallen series by Lauren Kate
  • The Sookie Stackhouse by Charlaine Harris
  • The Wings series by Aprilynne Pike
  • Paranormalcy series by Kiersten White

As a reader you invest a lot in a series and you want to get the ending you want. There’s a lot of pressure on writers butย I’d love to have a series of books one day, it seems like lots of fun!

Probably the three most popular series ever:

How do you feel about book series?ย

  1. I do love a good series but I usually wait until at least two books are published before I begin. I just hate waiting. Hunger Games and Harry Potter are a few of my favorites.

  2. I love book series. You start off getting to know the characters, growing to love (or hate) them, and then, before you know it, the series is over. It’s kind of like high school, haha. I remember when I first finished the Hunger Games trilogy. I was sooo sad! It literally felt like a loved one had passed away. It was crazy, but I guess that’s just the sign of a good story(: Re-visiting the characters (or I should say, re-reading the story) is always fun, too.

  3. I’m more of a trilogy type of a person. A couple series have my full attention at the moment: Rebecca Zanetti, Charlaine Harris at the moment.

    Bonnie. I loved the Left Behind series, too. That was crazy interesting!

  4. I never got into Harry Potter, Twilight was OK to me, the first book I loved but then it got a bit well, samey to me… Just finished the first Hunger Games book, eagerly waiting to read more! I love reading a good series, whats better than knowing when you finish your favourite book that there’s more to come!

  5. The latest book in The Mortal Instruments series is sitting on my nightstand and I’m hesitant to start it because I don’t want it to end. Though, I hear there are more books on the horizon!

    Plus, I am anxiously awaiting the next Fallen book. I’m dying to know how it all ends. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I love a good book series! Yes, I hate to see them end. It is SO hard. But still, the end is the way the author ends it. I wouldn’t rewrite them. I think writing is very personal and agree with however they want to do it. ๐Ÿ™‚ That is not to say I don’t dream about different endings. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I’m in the midst of writing my book series: the first three books are events that happen in 36 months (or so!); whilst the last book in the series will be a follow-up 10-odd years down the line. Wouldn’t you all like a follow-up to the series 10 years’ on and see how much has changed?
