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!
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 […]

Top Ten Tuesday by The Broke & The Bookish is on hiatus for now, so this is what we’re going with today. Yash Kami from The Lynburn Legacy: I think her YouTube account would be so much fun! Just hearing her ramble about everyday non-magic things would be so much fun–and she could drag in Angela […]
Janet The Whole Truth and And Nothing But the Truth by Kit Pearson. I realize I’m very late to the party, but WOW these books are excellent. Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire.

Nafiza Hmm. I am generally very brave about trying out new authors so the majority of the books I read are by people whose books I haven’t read before. I mean, books take time to be written. If you read only authors you know, you would have very little reading material. Here are some of […]
