The Bookish News:

2013 is a heavy year of conclusions in YA series.  I just recently read & reviewed Requiem by Lauren Oliver, the last in her Delirium series here.  I was pleased with its finality, but it still leaves a bittersweet feeling of an end to such an incredible story.  I just got Clockwork Princess this week, which is probably one of my most highly anticipated reads of the year, and I am so eager to keep reading -- yet scared to finish, too.  I adore this series (maybe more than Clare's previous, The Mortal Instruments? I'm not sure).  Regardless, it will be another bittersweet finale to encounter.  And then there's the conclusion to the Divergent series by Veronica Roth.  Oh man.  I don't even know how all of that will end.  I love that we're getting to experience all the endings this year, but sort of sad, too.  Perhaps this opens the door for new books to come?  And more series to fall in love with?


  1. Lots of books this week! I like it. : ) The Infernal Devices all look great together. I'm hoping to start reading that series soon, but I say that all the time. ; )

    I have been thinking about that end of series debacle for days now. It's really kind of sad and bittersweet, no? But also exciting - there are new series to discover!

  2. I want to read The Lucy Variations by Sara Zarr too!

  3. There are SO MANY series ending this year! It's nuts! BUT that means I might be able to finish and work on OTHER series books ... they're so easy to pile up!

    Yay for The Lucy Variations! I have that one and can't wait to read it.

    Have a good week!

  4. I have a hard time finishing series. It'a always tough. Glad you've enjoyed all the ones you've read so far. Great haul :)
