Series ending. Hearts breaking. Bittersweet 2012.

Now I don't know about you guys, but I'm very sad to see my favorite Young Adult series are ending this next year, 2012.

I feel like I'm saying goodbye to all of my childhood friends. All this series have a very special place in my heart because they are among the very first YA books that ignited the flame that led me to be the HUGE teen-books junkie I am today.

Now let us take a trip down memory lane, and pay a little tribute to those especial series that we have all come to love.

Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

Ah HH. How can I begin to describe this series?
Much like its author it is full of funniness and southern charm.
The characters are all very well-shaped and they really come to life. I want Sophie to be my BFF, she kicks major butt and is such a teenager! I love teenagers, they can be dramatic but they're a blast to read about!

Wings by Aprilynne Pike

I don't know if there are ay Wings fans here, but I HAD to include it in the list.
Even though the series had been going downfall for me, I still buy every book as soon as it is out. Because in book 1 ---->
I found the story to be fascinating, how different these faeries are, and all the journey Laurel went through with accepting her true nature AND how this book has THE MOST ROMANTIC SCENE I'VE EVER READ.
I'm not kidding, my heart still skips a beat every time I read it.

The Ghost and the Goth by  Stacey Kade

I really love this one. I know this series is not really that famous, but what lacks in fandom it has in awesomeness.
I kid you not, it is funny and sexy and light and has the perfect amount of angst and an intese relatioship that progresses in a very realistic approach. It is everything a teen book should be.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Technically, it is not a series; but whoever is not sad to see the inter-connecting story of these three lovely girls: Anna, Lola and Isla, is seriously wrong in the head.
Perkins has a way with story-telling, and it certainly helps that her books always have the most amazing settings, her books are captivating and I certainly hope she continues writting amazing books like these 3.

Paranormalcy by Kristen White

Now, I'm not the biggest fan of the this one, but I figured it needed to be recognized aswell, its huge crowd of fans is not for nothing :)
Like I said, it wasn't my cup of tea. But it indeed has formed a culture based on lockers and pink tasers, that takes serious love and decication from White's fans.

I'm sure some series are escaping my mind right now, but I'm too sleepy right now and my brain does not works well on friday nights (which is my free night, which I usually spend sleeping)

But I really want to dedicate this post to all of those series that leave us this next year. The departure of our favorite characters and the inevitable end to their adventures is bittersweet. The good thing about book though?
You can revive all those good times with a short trip to your bookcase.

  1. I'm actually surprised that the Hex Hall series is going to just be a trilogy. There were so many things still left unresolved at the end of Demonglass. I'll be sorry to see it end too. I love Sophie. Great post!


I love your beautiful face!
