Steph created the Six For Sunday challenge, and this quarter’s prompts are here! This week it’s heart-wrenching series endings. I spent most of a day thinking about this and I only got to five, so this six for Sunday I’m cheating and doing five instead.
- My first is a bit of a cheat with Scorpia Rising by Anthony Horowitz. It’s a cheat because he’s written more books since, but it was announced as the final book and for years we thought that was it. And it’s heart-breaking. Amazing, but heart-breaking.
- Next it has to be Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman. Again, an incredible book and an incredible series ending, but I’m still sad every time I think about it.
- I’m going to include The Death Cure by James Dashner. I don’t know how the actual series ends, but I stopped reading this book partway through because it upset me so thoroughly that I had to put it down and never came back to it. Heart-wrenching? Yah.
- Can I include Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows on this list for how much I hate the epilogue? I mean, it wasn’t sad I just wish the epilogue never happened. I love Scorpius Malfoy, and Albus Potter, as characters, but I could live without ‘nineteen years later’. Leave things to people’s imaginations sometimes.
- Me? Cheating at Six for Sunday? More likely than you think. I’m including The Rise of Skywalker novelisation by Rae Carson even though I haven’t read it yet because the movie made me cry so I’m pretty sure the book will too.
See you next week for the next Six For Sunday!
