Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at the Broke and the Bookish.
Let me preface this post with the fact that I have a horrible memory. Odd things stick, but
for the most part I only have vague inclinations. TTT is kind of like a memory game for me.
Before Goodreads helped me keep track of books all I had were random pieces of paper
with lists on them that I would tuck places and add to when I had a chance...
SO glad things have changed!
- The Princess Curse by Marrie Haskell- great ending, but I literally gasped when it was over. I had been reading my kindle so just flipping through the pages (with real books you can tell when you only have a few pages left) but then it was done flipping! and I couldn't believe it!! PLEASE MS. HASKELL, WRITE MORE!!!
- The Hero of Ages (end of Mistborn trilogy) by Brandon Sanderson- dang this one had me kind of furious, I was like "It simply can't end like that!!!!" Though it's a couple hundred years later I'm really looking forward to the Alloy of Law!
- Princess at Sea by Dawn Cook- it finally happened what I wanted to happen between the two people that I wanted it to happen to....and then it was done!! I want more development!!! not just a knowledge that things are hunky dory or headed that way! More TENSION!
- I Shall Wear Midnight by Terry Prachett- for Hermione Granger fans, this is the series for you. Tiffany Aching is a no nonsense witch who isn't perfect, but pretty darn close! This was the end of the series and my mouth was open in a sense that I was grinning from ear to ear. Such an adorable, perfect perfect ending. If a book was about me I would want an adorable ending like this one!
- Gone by Michael Grant- As I just posted in my review, this book was exhausting! I was expecting more closure but no, the poor kids have to suffer more. Great start to a series but one I won't be picking back up for a while.
- The City of Bones by Cassandra Clare- big confession time, I got the most of the way through this story and then with only 1/4 left there was this confession thing (that may or may not be true, I haven't read it again to find out) but it totally weirded me out so I just stopped reading it.
- Perfume: The Story of a Murder by Patrick Suskind- this was one crazy book. I actually felt for the main character even though he had absolutely no morals. What happens to him in the end totally had my mind reeling, it was insane!
- Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier- while I was ok with the ending in this book, I have to put this down in memory of a friend who I gave this to for her birthday. She read it but wanted Sorcha to end up with someone else so she threw the book across the room. Her little sister saw this and said "Don't be mad, I'm sure she wanted to give you a nice present." So cute!
- Only the Good Spy Young (Gallagher Girls #4) by Ally Carter- so this was a nice quick fun read series but with the ending of this one I just got fed up. So over dramatic! You only have the skills of super spies yet you act like immature little girls! Grr, I like my characters to think things through and not make sure rash decisions.
- The Maze Runner by James Dashner- So, I was excited for this book and was totally expecting it to be a stand alone. The ending was a total set up for things to come and that annoyed me.
How about you?
