Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
We decided to do the best rather than the worst (a little depressing to start reading a series when you know the last book is disappointing).
1. Clockwork Princess (Infernal Devices series) by Cassandra Clare: Even though some people didn't like the epilogue, I thought it was such a satisfying ending.
2. Boundless (Unearthly series) by Cynthia Hand: The ending was clear, not open, and there was an epilogue that let you know where everyone was (although I was sad about one character, I didn't like how things ended for that character).
3. Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy series) by Richelle Mead: I was very nervous given the name, but it was a fantastic series ender.
4. Reached (Matched series) by Ally Condie: A clear, satisfying conclusion.
5. Mockingjay (The Hunger Games series) by Suzanne Collins: Although it was sad, a clear ending that provides closure.
And I have high hopes for Allegiant, The Horde, Emerald Green (which comes out today), The Retribution of Mara Dyer (just the word retribution gives me the chills), Champion, Sentinel, Infinite, and Into the Still Blue. All of these series ending soon! (I'm actually a little choked up about it).
Sheri's Picks: So all of mine are the first series that I read in a particular genre. I honestly don't know if in comparison to all the possible choices these would be the BEST but they certainly got me hooked on reading YA Fiction.
6. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling (Harry Potter series): This series led me to read or reread so many other classic tales I will be eternally grateful to JK Rowling.
7. Specials by Scott Westerfeld (Uglies series): My introduction to dystopian young adult fiction and it was a great one.
8. The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray (Gemma Doyle series): Female friendships, challenging Victorian social rules, and magic kept me reading late into the night.
9. Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer (Twilight series): When the book is really all about the relationships.
