Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins:
I adored this series. If Collins would have kept writing, I would have kept reading. But I thought Katniss got an ending that was perfect for the books, even if it wasn’t perfect for her.
Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer
: I know this isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but Meyer’s series was so timid, I didn’t know if she’d actually turn Bella into a vampire. Maybe I give her too much credit by thinking this was a bold choice, but the bottom line re: this whole series is that I would not be here blogging without it. I’d never read YA before it, but one of my friends FORCED me to read it, and that led to more exploration of YA, and eventually to this blog.
Boundless by Cynthia Hand:
I was a bit nervous for this series, because I didn’t love Hallowed.
was pretty fantastic. (My reviews of Unearthly, Hallowed
, and Boundless
These Had Better Be Good…Or ELSE!!
