June 8th: Favourite/Best Endings | Top 5 Wednesday

Top 5 Wednesday was started in November 2013 and is a very much active group on Goodreads, so head over to Goodreads to join the group and keep up with all the topics for the month. I thought it was such a fun idea to have weekly books related prompts that I could answer and share with all of you.

Unfortunately I missed out on last week’s prompt due to my busy revision schedule and was unable to post my take on the prompt in advance. Anyway, here is this week’s Top 5 Wednesday prompts:

June 8th: Favorite/Best Endings

It’s a great feeling when a series starts strong and ends strong. In honor of today’s prompt, let’s spotlight those books that have some of our favorite or best endings we’ve read in fiction!

1. Falling by T.J. Newman

This was such as satisfying conclusion to an action-packed, heart-pounding thriller. One of my favourite thrillers of the year!

Full book review: The One That May Have Instigated A Fear Of Flights: Falling by T.J Newman | Book Review

Goodreads blurb:

You just boarded a flight to New York.

There are one hundred and forty-three other passengers onboard.

What you don’t know is that thirty minutes before the flight your pilot’s family was kidnapped.

For his family to live, everyone on your plane must die.

The only way the family will survive is if the pilot follows his orders and crashes the plane.

Enjoy the flight

2. Rescue Me by Sarra Manning

Such a cute ending to an even more wholesome story.

Goodreads Review: Rescue Me by Sarra Manning

Goodreads blurb:
Margot and Will cross paths at the local dog rescue centre where – after a series of misunderstandings and a lot of consternation – they agree to foster Blossom (a staffy with a giant head, soft, floppy ears and kohl-rimmed brown eyes) together: one week on, one week off.

Margot and Will don’t get off to the best of starts: he thinks Margot is demanding and needy and Just So Much. And she thinks Will is emotionally unavailable, slightly brittle and very mistrustful. They’re both right.

But the more they bicker, the worse Blossom behaves, and they realise they have to form some sort of truce in order to dog-parent (or “pawrent” as Margot calls it, to which Will rolls his eyes) her together. It’s almost as if Blossom has plans of her own… 

3. One for Sorrow by Helen Sarah Fields 

This was one of those books where it ends on a cliffhanger, but a good cliffhanger! The kind where you want to keep on reading the next book. (I ended up purchasing the previous books in this series, and starting them soon!)

Full Book Review: The One About A Lone Bomber: One for Sorrow by Helen Sarah Fields | Book Review

Goodreads blurb:

One for sorrow, two for joy
Edinburgh is gripped by the greatest terror it has ever known. A lone bomber is targeting victims across the city and no one is safe.

Three for a girl, four for a boy
DCI Ava Turner and DI Luc Callanach face death every day – and not just the deaths of the people being taken hostage by the killer.

Five for silver, six for gold
When it becomes clear that with every tip-off they are walking into a trap designed to kill them too, Ava and Luc know that finding the truth could mean paying the ultimate price.

Seven for a secret never to be told…
But with the threat – and body count – rising daily, and no clue as to who’s behind it, neither Ava nor Luc know whether they will live long enough to tell the tale…

4. Cinder by Marissa Meyer 

The author did a great job of ensuring I continue on with the rest of the series. This book ended on quite a big cliffhanger and I was desperate for more.

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless Lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. . . . Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. 

She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.

5. These Hollow Vows by Lexi Ryan

Another book that ended on a cliffhanger. So, so lucky to have an ARC (advanced reader’s copy) the second book.

From New York Times best-selling author Lexi Ryan, Cruel Prince meets A Court of Thorns and Roses in this sexy, action-packed fantasy about a girl who is caught between two treacherous faerie courts and their dangerously seductive princes.

Brie hates the Fae and refuses to have anything to do with them, even if that means starving on the street. But when her sister is sold to the sadistic king of the Unseelie court to pay a debt, she’ll do whatever it takes to get her back—including making a deal with the king himself to steal three magical relics from the Seelie court.

Gaining unfettered access to the Seelie court is easier said than done. Brie’s only choice is to pose as a potential bride for Prince Ronan, and she soon finds herself falling for him. Unwilling to let her heart distract her, she accepts help from a band of Unseelie misfits with their own secret agenda. As Brie spends time with their mysterious leader, Finn, she struggles to resist his seductive charm.

Caught between two dangerous courts, Brie must decide who to trust with her loyalty. And with her heart
