There is NO WAY this is not my favourite ending novel to a trilogy ever. But oh the feels...
I feel like this is a bit of a controversial choice because most people I know hated the ending. I thought the ending of the book was perfect. I won't say why because I know I have some readers who haven't finished the trilogy (hurry up damn it!), but I'm even talking that last chapter. That's exactly who Katniss is as a character, and...I can't say why, but for reasons, I think the ending is so realistic and it's basically just perfect in my eyes.
This book has everything in it, and as I am an unabashed Tamora Pierce fangirl and this was my first quartet of hers I read, I really shouldn't have to explain why this is on the list.
While I may have become distanced from the book for most of the middle of the series (it becomes quite repetitive)...the last book of this series is surprisingly mature for the series. Again, I don't want to say anything with spoilers, but this book felt much more serious than the others. I know many people were really upset by the ending, but *spoilers* I like that not every question is answered and the fate of the Baudelaire's is up to the reader to interpret.*spoilers*
I haven't mentioned this on the blog yet I don't think, but this series was another set that I grew up reading. I don't even remember the first time I read the books, but every time I go to them it always feels fresh. And the tone of the books in the first couple through the end are so different! The series definitely ended up more serious than I expected from the first book. It's a bit like Harry Potter in that sense - comparing the first book to the last as far as tone goes.
This trilogy is entirely overlooked which is a shame because I LOVE IT SO MUCH. Wandering Meander is the first person I've met ever in my entire life who has ever read this trilogy. It's just...the world building, the lore, the NOT instalove, the love despite not having a heart racingly attractive love interest..it's just so amazing! And the ending to the trilogy feels like the undertones are a bit darker. In any case, if you take anything from this list other than the fact that judging by most of the endings to these series I'm sadistic, read this trilogy because I would love for it to get some love!
I'm honestly having a really hard time coming up with any others. It's not because I don't think there are any more good ones, it's just that I don't have a great memory and some of these books I read years ago. For example, I vaguely remember Wyvernhail being on of my favourite Atwater reads. I really wanted to have Isabel Allende's City of the Beast trilogy because I've never mentioned it on this blog but I remember it being AMAZING...but I have a vague memory that the first book was my favourite and I was undecided on the last one. But again, I haven't read either set of books in years. And there are plenty of other books I could name, but that's basically the whole point of this list that I am leaving incomplete, so there you are haha.
