Wow! Another month gone! It is Calendar Girls Post time again!! This month’s theme is Best End of a Series. So, before I get in to my top choice, here is a reminder of what this awesome group is all about:
Calendar Girls is a monthly book group, formed by Flavia and Melanie, inspired by the song Calendar Girl by Neil Sedaka. This lovely group votes on a monthly theme to center a blog post around (first Monday of the month) and then discusses these posts on Twitter about two weeks later (third Sunday of the month). If this sounds interesting to you, please give Melanie and Flavia a visit and let them know you would like to join!
P.s. Just because it’s called Calendar ‘Girls’ doesn’t mean only girls can join!
It may come as a surprise when I tell you that I have not finished many book series. I was in love with The Mortal Instruments series several years ago, but never read the last book because I did not want it to end. My current favorite series, The Whispers of the Fallen, does not have an ending yet, and I have only really finished a few duologys, and a few trilogies. So, my runner up today is the end of my favorite trilogy.
If you have not read this trilogy yet, you need to. It is beautifully immersive with stunning writing and imagery!
Best End of a Series:
The Dragonian series is honestly tied for favorite with The Whispers of the Fallen series. Each book was better than the last and they were all full of action, amazing world building, and well developed characters. Starlight was the perfect ending to the series. It had more action, adventure, danger, romance, and a bittersweet ending. Many things were resolved, and the ending left hope for more. So, I won’t give the synopsis of book 5 because it gives some mild spoilers, but here is the book 1 synopsis.
Book 1 Synopsis:
Dragons. Right. Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales, and sixteen-year old Elena Watkins was no different.
Until the night a fairy tale killed her father.
Now Elena’s in a new world, and a new school. The cutest guy around may be an evil dragon, a Prince wants Elena’s heart, and a long dead sorcerer may be waking up to kill her. Oh. And the only way Elena’s going to graduate is on the back of a dragon of her own.
Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales. Now it’s time for Elena to believe – in herself.
