Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. This week is our top ten favorite beginnings/endings in books. I did not write any spoilers when talking about the endings, so no worries when reading this post :)
Just One Day by Gayle Forman
This ending was INSANE. This is the
worst best ending ever. The biggest cliffhanger I have ever read. I am patiently waiting for the second in the series to come out. This is one of my favorite books of this year so far. Enough gushing, but seriously, read this one ASAP.
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
I had no idea how this trilogy would end and I was really impressed with this beautiful ending. I love this trilogy and was nervous to have it end. This is probably the best ending to a trilogy that I have ever read.
Aristotle & Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
This was a wonderful story of two friends and one of the best love story I have ever read. I loved the realistic relationship and the ending left my heart swollen in a good way.
I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella
This book had me on edge until the very end. I wanted this book to end well and for Poppy to have her happy ending. It was sweet and left me smiling.
White Horse by Alex Adams
This book had one of the best bad guys, ever. This book had twist, after twist, after twist, but the biggest twists of all came at the end. I enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I would and I'm so glad I went outside of my comfort zone to read it.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
This one was a no brainer for me. Beginning with "The Boy Who Lived" this book hooked me in to the whole series. Rowling does such a good job starting stories in a way that hooks even those that don't enjoy reading.
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
This book begins with the MC, Juliette, writing about her captivity. The writing style is in a stream-of-consciousness point of view and Juliette's poetic outlook on everything had me devouring the first page and the next, and the next.
Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
This book hooked me in with the writing just as Shatter Me did. I love the writing in this book. This is my current read and I am completely hooked on this book.
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
This book begins with Ana leaving her mother to travel to the city of Heart. I love reading about adventure and this book was promising an adventure in the way that Ana left to travel by herself.
