Today’s topic is: Top 10 Best Endings (or beginnings…or a combination…but I just did endings)
Because I don’t want to spoil any book endings for you this post will be mostly ramble free–I don’t know if anything I post will ever be completely ramble free…
The wait a minutes…what just happened endings:
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I know most people didn’t care for this ending, but I found it perfectly fitting.
Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane
Wait, so what you’re telling me is…I loved this book and couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.
My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult
Sad and shocking. Jodi Picoult is the M.Night Shyamalan of contemporary women’s fiction.
The epic endings:
The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien
I doubt I really need to explain the awesomeness that is this ultimate good vs. evil ending.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling
The swoons (because there are few things I like more than a swoon-y ending):
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
The French boarding school swoon.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
The classic swoon.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
The spell-binding swoon.
The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
The classic Dessen swoon.
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
The boy next door swoon.
Those are just a few of my favorite endings. What books made your list this week? Link me up!
