[Top 5 Wednesday] Series That Got Better
It's time for this week's Top Five Wednesday! This has been created by gingerreadslainey and it also has a Goodreads group. I am hoping to do these posts (or other weekly Wednesday posts) more often as long as I am interested in the current prompt! This week's prompt I am discussing five book series that got better as the series progressed.
The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
City of Bones is kind of a mess writing wise, but as the books continue they definitely improve. Granted, I am talking about Mortal Instruments exclusively, because I really couldn't get into Infernal Devices at all.
Legend by Marie Lu
Legend is a dystopian series that I absolutely loved. I love all three books, but I definitely think the story improves as you keep reading. I highly recommend it. I know the dystopian trend has definitely died down, but if you're itching for a dystopian series to quickly read through Legend is definitely something I think would satisfy that craving.
A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket
This is a thirteen book series, so obviously I am going to like some of the books more than others despite what order they're in. However, story wise, I think it improves as you keep reading. You get hooked into the mystery and you can't put them down until you figure out all the secrets inside the book.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I love the Hunger Games trilogy (however, I think the movies are better) but I think that the story gets better with each book. I am one of the crazy people who actually loved Mockingjay.
Zita the Space Girl by Ben Hatke
This graphic novel trilogy is amazing and so cute. It's a middle grade story about Zita's friend being sucked into a different dimension and her going in to save him. It's so much fun and I think the story gets better and better as you keep reading.
