Friday Fives | Wow! Endings

As per usual, I started #FridayFavorites back when I started up the blog again and wanted to make sure I kept at least one regular post a week. This was, of course, before I knew there were others out there. But I decided to keep it, especially since I have the whole year planned out. In December, I decided to change it to #FridayFives instead to have more room for topics. If anyone wants to join me, the list for future topics can be foundĀ here.

Today’s topic is on books that had amazing endings that completely blew me away!

I was literally dead after finishing this! I was not expecting that ending or how much it ripped my heart out and stomped on it!


I pre-ordered this book. I did not know this book was a series. I threw the book when I read that ending! I’m so excited that the second book is out.


A fascinating, twisty book with such an interesting ending, and something that made me truly think of justice and our (United States) justice system.


I’m not going to lie, I think Hank wrote a better book than John. Come at me, bro! I thought this book was fascinating exploration of humanity, privacy, and infamy. That ending left me so mad though! But it was soooo good!!


In the poem The Hollow Man, by T.S. Eliot, he ends the poem “This is the way the world ends/Not with a bang but a whimper.” This book relates to that line so much that I can’t even! It was a beautiful book with such a wow ending but one that was subtle and haunting and stayed with you for days later.

Happy Reading Darlings!

#FridayFavorites | Endings

I love a good ending. An ending you didn’t see coming is even better. When everything falls into place and the fog lifts, is one of the best part of a story. So, here are some of my favorite endings. Please note, I’ve tried to write the blurbs and my thoughts to not have any spoilers.

Yes, I’ve read all the Robert Langdon books. I was actually shocked by this ending and slightly terrifying.

Gosh, this whole book was absolutely amazing! That ending, gah, I desperately needed the second book. Still haven’t read it cause life, but I’m planning on it soon.

I didn’t expect the ending for this book. I was surprised and saddened by what had happened.

I’m completely obsessed with Sarah Waters! This masterpiece follows the stragely linked lives of two women, Sue and Maud. I was surprised by not only the ending but the midpoint twist as well! But finding out how tightly wound Sue and Maud’s lives are was so deftly written and surprisingly satisfying.

I finished this book with so many feelings! Such an amazing book, that not only has a great twist ending but also has an interesting theme(s) as well.

Happy Reading, Lovelies!
