Six for Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Steph @ A Little But a Lot! Today’s topic is Heartwrenching Endings to Series.
I’ve read so many series that ended with me crying like a baby, and I’m so excited to share them all with you! These books literally shattered my heart into a billion pieces!
*some spoilers ahead*
1. Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
Ugh. MY HEART! I can’t even think about this book without breaking down into sobs. It was such an unexpectedly perfect conclusion to an amazing trilogy. The Infernal Devices is easily my favorite Cassie Clare series, mostly because I adore the characters so much! Their story was wrapped up in such a beautifully heartbreaking way.
2. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
The Hunger Games is one of my all-time favorite series, but I hardly ever reread it in order to avoid the emotional damage Mockingjay will inflict upon me. Poor Finnick! Poor Prim! Poor Peeta! POOR EVERYONE. Oh my god, don’t even get me started on the epilogue. I don’t think a book scene ever made me cry so hard! LEAVE IT TO SUZANNE COLLINS TO LITERALLY BREAK MY HEART BEYOND REPAIR.
3. The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black
What can I say? My emotions got one hell of a work out with this book! I loved The Queen of Nothing so so much, I cried for hours after reading it! Partly because I was devestated that the trilogy was over, and partly because I was so happy that Jude and Cardan got the happy ending they deserved! ❤
4. Allegiant by Veronica Roth
Y’all can hate on me for being a Divergent stan, but I HAVE ZERO SHAME! That series introduced me to the wonderful genre that is YA, and it’s one of the reasons why I love reading so much. The series had it’s issues, sure, but I had so much fun reading it. And Allegiant was yet another book that had me sobbing my eyes out after reading it! Not only did the ending devastate me, but it also really angered me! TRIS SHOULDN’T HAVE DIED! And I hated it so much when in the last chapter a romance was hinted between Tobias and Christina! Veronica Roth really had to do us Fourtris stans like that.
5. The Midnight Star by Marie Lu
The Midnight Star was a fantastic book for so many reasons. I think what made me love it most was the way Marie Lu wrapped up Adelina’s character arc. I really didn’t like Adelina in the first book, but that’s what makes this series so amazing. Adelina goes through SO MUCH character development, and the sacrifice she makes at the end of The Midnight Star is truly heartbreaking. It shows how far she’s come as a character and how her difficult journey has allowed her to become the person she never thought she could be. Such a beautiful way to end a series!
6. Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi
The Under the Never Sky trilogy is amazing, and I don’t talk about it enough on my blog! Into the Still Blue was a wonderful conclusion, and I absolutely loved the way Veronica Rossi wrapped everything up in such an exquisitely beautiful way. The characters had been through so much and had gone through so much development. They remained true to themselves though, and it is so amazing. Love this series so much!
I’m not crying, you are!
