30 Days of Books: Day One

30 Days of Books

Day 01 – A book series you wish had gone on longer OR a book series you wish would just freaking end already (or both!) 

That's definitely a hard one. I love books so much that I never want any of them to end. I'm tempted to say Juliet Marillier because she is my favourite author(ess) but she hasn't disappointed us by stopping her Sevenwaters but I guess I'd like to see more of her young-adult novels after reading Wildwood Dancing and Cybele's Secret. 

That said I think I'm leaning towards Tamora Pierces Trickster series, with Tricksters Choice and Tricksters Queen.

For a series that has gone on much too long I'm tossing up between a few again. There was one I read in high school that I can't remember the name of for the life of me, though I can picture the covers. Seven books of the same thing. If I remember what it was then I will come back and edit this entry.

I'll have to go with the Ellie Chronicles. I loved the Tomorrow series, and though they almost went on too long, Marsden managed to make them enjoyable, interesting and new. The Ellie Chronicles was a little too much for me.
EDIT: I found the series that I hated. I typed the words "fantasy, series, crown" into Google and it came up as the first result. Who doesn't love Google? It was Crown of Stars by Kate Elliot. I'm not saying they were bad books but I just didn't enjoy them. Elliot was striving too hard to create her own LotRs and unlike Terry Brooks didn't manage it. She seemed very repetitive, but that's just from memory. I'll re-read them one day if I can get my hands on them. But for now, that's the series that went far too long.
