Top Five Wednesday is a tag originating on youtube (booktube), created by Lainey of gingerreadslainey.
It’s top 5 Wednesday again and the topic is Least Favorite Book in Your Favorite Series.
I do have a lot of series I’m currently into but I don’t like cliff hangers so I tend to read series with a sense of ending per book.
Here’s my list of series (actually I just really want to promote them) and my least favorite book for each:
1. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
–> On this wizarding world that started my love on reading, I just love all the books. My least favorite among the 7 books is:
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
… it was well written, as always. It’s my least favorite because of the mood of the book and some pesky character namely Umbridge that makes me soooo mad. But still, I love this book.
2. Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan
–> I had a huge book hangover after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows that I thought I won’t be reading any series in like…forever. Then came Percy, yay! The writing is amazing, funny and the details are very good. Well established world, jargons and characters. I really love it! Choosing among the five, I think my least favorite would be:
The Battle of the Labyrinth
… this is because of Rachel’s(did I spell it right?) existence. I totally ship Percabeth so when this seemingly human wants to join in, I just want to kick her out of the book. Also, Nico is in a kind of a rebel mood.
3. Fantasyland Series by Kristen Ashley
–> This is a good series about a parallel universe. The blurb attracted me because it’s interesting. Sleeping on your bed last night then suddenly waking up in a parallel universe where the people knows you as someone else. Usually your twin (your doppelganger on that other world) is a bad person and the lead girl ends up in a lot of trouble. The world building is good.
It has a lot of mature contentS so if you’re too young or not interested, DON’T.
My least favorite among the 4 (it’s an ongoing series) would be:
The Broken Dove
… only because the people from the other world already knows that she is not her twin. Her twin died. But a lot of things happened that compensated on the lost of that mystery.
4. The Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward
–> There was a time I was addicted to reading stories about vampires and I came across this series. World building is amazing, I feel like I was transported on the book and into the world where the Brotherhood is fighting the Lessening Society to preserve their race.
Each warrior is unique and also with issues that they’ll try to resolve. The story is a bit complicated to what I’m used to. Among the 11 I’ve read so far, my least favorite is:
… because Phury suddenly became the bad brother. I just feel bad on some scenes and I didn’t like Phury that much.
*It’s also a series for mature audiences only.
5. Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer
–> Twilight is the first ever Vampire-Human-Love kind of book I’ve ever read. I finished the whole series and even read Midnight Sun and The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. I have complicated feelings throughout this series. My least favorite among the 4 would be:
…why? Because Edward left, then Bella became a bit of a psycho and then wolf boy Jacob suddenly became her Sun. I just hate love triangles, and I’ve been team Edward forever.
So that’s my top 5 Wednesday for this week. What’s yours? 💜
