Top 5 Wednesday: Series That Got Better

I haven’t read too many series, let alone series that I think got better with each book. I may bend the rules just a little bit but hey! That’s okay!


1. The Shadow and Bone Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo

Now, this is one that I’m iffy about. The first book was fine, the second book I didn’t like, but the third I really enjoyed. So it went downhill for me before it got better.

2. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas

This is one that I’m bending the rules on. I liked the first, loved the second, did not like the third. So I would count this without bending the rules if this would have come out prior to ACOWAR’s release. But hey. It still got better before it got worse.

3. Harry Potter by JK Rowling

Yeah. Not linking to all these books. But I couldn’t come up with 5 answers without including this.

4. Fruits Basket by Natsuki Takaya

I absolutely adore this manga. As it went on, it just got better and better. More in depth and heart wrenching. I love it.

This next one is one I hope get better

5. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

I’ve read Cinder and started Scarlet but I haven’t continued on with it. I have heard that this series gets better as it goes on and I’m really hoping that’s true.

  1. I read the whole Lunar Chronicles series and I enjoyed all the books. But I will be honest and say I was relieved to read the last book because I wanted the series to end. BUT I also thought the last book was grand! It was a bit slow but the ending was AMAZING!! Definitely I do suggest you try and push through it.

    1. I liked the first well enough. I started the second but just haven’t really be motivated to sit down and read it. Right now I’m in a kind of funk where I just want to read contemporary 😂

      1. I know what you mean! I listened to the last two books in audiobook format because I couldn’t handle picking up the book and reading it! Scarlet was the lesser of them all that I enjoyed. Cress was by far my favorite!
