Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey! Click here to check out the Goodreads group.
For the last Wednesday in March, the topic is the least favourite books in your favourite series. I think that this is such a neat idea. There’s always that one book that just doesn’t live up to the others on the series. I’m interested to see how others answer this question this week!
It looks like I have a lot of last books in the series on here.
1. New Moon in the Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer
This was a struggle to get through. I didn’t like Jacob as a character and it just seemed like a massive whine fest. When I was reading these I was totally “Team Edward” haha. I cringe at saying that now. I wonder if I would like this series now if I were to give them a re-read. I was so young when I read them. This series was my first binge read.
2. Mockingjay in the Hunger Games Series by Suzanne Collins
(This was hard to pick which one was my least favourite because I loved it all)
I knew I had to pick a book from this series as it is very high on my favourites list. So I picked the last one. I don’t know why but the third book changes in a good way but makes it different than The Hunger Games and Catching Fire. I’m going to say it’s because Peeta is being tortured in the Capitol.
3. Insurgent in the Divergent Series by Veronica Roth
I chose this book because when I went out and purchased Allegiant I thought I had to finish reading Insurgent and I thought that my bookmark had fallen out so I guessed where I had finished off and continued reading. Turns out I had already read the book and I didn’t catch on until the very end. So if I had read the book previously and wasn’t aware the second time around the book must not have been that significant, right? Also, who forget that they’ve read a whole book?
4. Shades of Earth in the Across the Universe Series by Beth Revis
Like The Hunger Games series the third book in this trilogy had a different dynamic going on in comparison with the previous 2. I mean, I guess the change in dynamic is needed in the story but the difference felt kind of abrupt. You are immersed in this world for two books and all of a sudden it changes. I don’t know if that’s a good enough reason to make it my least favourite but I’m sticking to it.
5. Champion in the Legend Series by Marie Lu
This book took me forever to read. I had read 28 pages of it at one point and it took me a year to pick it back up and get back into it. It was very hard to get into the story again. I eventually forced myself to read it as I made it a task for a past read-a-thon. Once I got into the book and finished however, I did enjoy it.
