It was a “love freebie” and I decided to go with this. What books gave you the most satisfying conclusions to a story/series–even if they aren’t your typical fairy tale ending?
There’s a theme here.
- Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho.
- The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison
- Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins by Eric Kimmel; illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman
- The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stievater
- Wild Robert by Diana Wynne Jones
- The Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. The trilogy had one of the most satisfying (for me) conclusions ever.
- Plain Kate by Erin Bow
- Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
Some of these are definitely romantic–just not in the way you’d expect. And they are all, to me, satisfying endings. 🙂
Don’t forget to share your own Top Ten Tuesday list with us in the comments!
I have read 246 books this year though that number might go up by one or two before the year is out. To some people, this number is insanely large but to me, it’s actually the fewest books i have read in 4 or 5 years. I cannot choose 10 books out of 246 so […]

Janet I love reading books – when I’m reading for pleasure and not for work – slowly, one chapter at a time, over the course of a week or two. Once mandated by hours at school and doing homework, reading slowly is now a luxury: reading slowly means I live more fully in each part […]

Janet Exactly how long a list am I allowed to write? Note: the list below is comprised strictly of books that have already been published. The first six Amy Unbounded comics by Rachel Hartman. (Technically, not a book, as these were never collected, unlike the next six, which were published as Amy Unbounded: Belondweg Blossoming.) Cart and Cwidder, […]
Hey, it’s time for Top Ten Tuesday already! Let us know what books you’re grateful for in the comments section below! Steph The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit because these books truly initiated me into the realm of fiction and fantasy. Harry Potter (the whole series), I know it has been said and it’ll be said some more, but […]
Books that are similar in tone or content to the Harry Potter series. Jane As a children’s librarian I often get asked for Harry Potter read-alikes. Caregivers are often desperate to keep up their child’s reading moment, and are looking for another series that will inspire their child the way the Harry Potter books did. […]
I’m making it so we don’t have to list scary books exactly, just books you’d read on Halloween! Jane My demographic tends to skew pretty little, so I’m always looking for picture books that are seasonally appropriate, and maybe even a little spooky, but aren’t going to send my little ones crying back to their […]
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about the book recommendations we did not regret. Or, maybe we did. Either way, the person who recommended these books was the reason we picked them up. Join in on the Top Ten fun in the comments! 🙂 Steph Lockwood & Co series by Jonathan Stroud. This was […]
