Day 5 of the BLOOD BORN Blog Tour...plus TGIF at GReads!!

Today is Day 5 of the BLOOD BORN Blog Tour, hosted by the super Yara at Once Upon A Twilight!

Please, head over to Hypable and check it out!

The awesomeness that is Ginger (or G, as I like to call her!) over at GReads! has created a great meme that is tons of fun. Each Friday, she poses a question for anyone to answer. Go check her out and join in the fun!

This Friday's Question:

Book Series Finales:

Which book, from any series,
has been your favorite ending?
What about your
least favorite ending?

Ooh, good question, G! That first part is simple...my favorite series ending is...

by Suzanne Collins

This book was wrought with pain and humility and loyalty and friendships tested and...honestly, we could be here all weekend! Suffice it to say that I felt that this book did an excellent job of ending what is one of my favorite book series ever! (dang it, now I wanna read this series again!)

As for my least favorite, that question is a bit more difficult. I'm honestly not one to dislike a book that often. And typically by the time I've made it to the last book in a series, I'm so invested in the characters and story that I love it. But, there is one series that I must admit I have stopped reading. It started out as one of my favorites, but 7 (or 8?) books in, it just became something so different than what it started as, I couldn't continue. And that series is...

by PC & Kristin Cast

Like I said, I loved the first few books in this series. I mean, it's a school for vampires--how awesome is that?! But, it became something totally different when the main focus of the storyline shifted from vampire training at the school. And I just couldn't stay interested. :(

What about you guys? Any series you liked or didn't like the ending? 


  1. I loved Mockingjay but I feel the same way about the house of night I read the first two and they started getting weird. I read the Vampire Academy which stayed closer to vampire school loved that series.

  2. J! This is why we're friends. We both picked the same book for favorite!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

  3. I really loved Mockingjay, but I didn't like the afterword bit - I could have done without that.

    Check out my TGIF / Follow Friday!

  4. Mockingjay, for me, was a little lacking. I mean, don't get wrong, I love the series as a whole - I think Suzanne did a fantastic job at tying everything together. But I just didn't love it the same way I did the other two books, and I feel like it could've veered into a different direction. Still, great pick, though!

  5. I have only read the first book in The Hunger Games series but I am already excited for that last book. As for The House of Night series, I couldn't agree with you more! I LOVE the first 3 or 4 books but at some point through the 5th book I sort of fell out of love with the series (that made me super sad because also like you, I am not one to dislike a whole lot of books!)

  6. Strangely enough, both of those would be my picks as well. I just wish Cast would say "10 books. That's where I'm ending this HON." Heck, she could say 8 but just wrap it up already. The unknown and the steady downward spiral of the plot really stinks.

  7. I just started reading Mockingjay today. Good pick!

  8. I agree HON was good at first, but not any more. I stared reading the books because my daughter reads the series, now she has the last one the came out and I just didn't pay attention any more. Mockingjay is a good book but I really wish a different ending.

  9. I am right with you on HON. I loved, loved the first few books, because I really like books set in schools/vampire training. Plus I thought Nerefet was a yummy evil character. And then they went downhill. I feel like the authors have really gone after money, especially with the short, expensive novellas they are putting out.
