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. 🙂

Published by Little Brown Books for Young Readers Synopsis of Daughter of Smoke and Bone Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky. In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth grows dangerously low. And in the […]
The merits of audiobooks are many but these five below are the important ones in my opinion: They make cooking/washing the dishes/folding laundry/cleaning the bathroom/knitting that scarf you’ve been trying to finish for years, seem like friendlier, even happier, tasks. (Most of these are activities one does regularly and I find that the prospect of listening […]

The best books I’ve read so far this year. Go on, fangirl. Nafiza The best books I’ve read this year, huh. I’ve read quite a few actually. I make it a point to not continue books if they’re not working out for me because there’s no point in torturing myself when other great books await […]
Before I say anything else, let me draw your attention to the title and clarify that when I say “Fictional Female Friendship” (whoa the alliteration), I’m talking about female friendship that appears in fiction and not implying that female friendship is fictional (which if you read enough YA novels can persuade you is true). Right? Right! A […]
