Each week, The Broke and Bookish host a Top Ten Tuesday based on a certain bookish topic. Other bloggers are able to participate and post their own top ten list based on the topic.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is a Top Ten Favorite Beginnings/Endings In Books.
So here’s my list in no particular order:
2. Dare You To by Katie McGarry
The first chapter of Dare You To immediately grabbed and kept my attention. It was flirty, wild, and fun. I would buy the book for the first chapter alone.
1. Summer in the City by Elizabeth Chandler
Oh my goodness, the ending. I can not get over this book’s ending. It is epic, sweet, and totally, 100%, unexpected.
2. Identical by Ellen Hopkins
The ending was so unpredictable and unexpected that I nearly threw the book across the room. (I have not yet really thrown a book across the room yet.) It scarred me and completely threw me off because it was just so unexpected.
3. Stolen by Lucy Christopher
I honestly never expected much from Stolen, but boy, did Stolen leave me bitter and completely devastated. Why did I like the ending of Stolen even though the ending of the book was so terrible? Simple. The ending of Stolen made me feel. It was the first – and hopefully the last – time I experienced Stockholm Syndrome.
4. Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally
The ending of Catching Jordan was perfect. It perfectly reflected Jordan and Henry’s friendship and how much they love each other.
7. Pivot Point by Kasie West
That ending! It basically scarred me for life and I’m so happy that it was able to do that. I’ll do anything to get the sequel in my hands asap.
And now, I want to know, what are your top ten favorite beginnings/endings in books?
