The Neverending Stories

I just thought it would be nice to highlight some YA series that never seem to end. I'd like to hear what you guys think about the continuation of certain books.

1. The Mortal Instruments books by Cassandra Clare

 Right now there are EIGHT books out there that are set in this universe. I'm not saying that that's a horrible thing, I'm just saying that it's just WOW. There's still the The City of Heavenly Fire and her new spin-offs which will both be trilogies called The Dark Artifices and TLH (for now). Oh! There's the Bane Chronicles and graphic novels as well. Do you think it will ever end? Do you want it to?

This series, to my limited knowledge, was supposed to have five books. Then somehow it found its way up to ten. Now they've added another two. I just can't take it anymore! I'm tired of buying this series and I would appreciate it if it would end sooner rather than later. The plot line is soooo repetitive. There's also a spin-off story about the professors at the school and a Fledgling 101 book.

3. The Nightshade books by Andrea Cremer

I'm kind of excited that this series is getting another chance to redeem itself because Bloodrose was anger-inducing. Snakeroot is supposed to be a series and I hope someway, somehow that a certain character comes back from the dead.

4. The Shadow Falls series by C.C. Hunter

 So this series isn't my favorite by any means. Honestly, it's taken me almost a year to force myself through the fourth one, so when I heard that there was going to be a spin-off book I wasn't totally convinced. However, that cover is B-E-A-UTIFUL!

 I don't even know what all there is to this series anymore. There's the original books plus some sort of Stefan's diary thing-a-ma-bob. Honestly, I stopped reading after the first like three so, yeah...

6. The Iron King books by Julie Kagawa

 Three books was supposed to be it. However, no one could have survived that ending Kagawa left us with so The Iron Knight was born. Now there's a bind-up of some short stories and a spin-off trilogy. Will there be more Iron Fey books in the future?

7. The Vampire Academy books by Richelle Mead

 I don't think anyone is disappointed that this series got a spin-off. I know I'm not. I haven't picked up the graphic novels though and I probably never will.

So, what do you think? Do you want more of each, a little of some and not so much for the others, or would you rather they stop at where they're supposed to?
