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. 🙂

A Book Wars original topic. Top Ten Tuesday is a meme run by Broke and Bookish and you can visit their page for more information. Today’s theme has to do with the scorn many adults face when people see them reading children’s lit or find out that they read children’s lit. What books would you […]

Hardcover, 384 pages Published September 22nd 2015 by Margaret K. McElderry Books Source: Publisher I am not entirely sure what tone to take with this review. Should I default to my irreverent tone or try to be formal in the report of my experience reading this novel? I don’t know. Let’s just play this by the […]
