Top 5 Wednesday- Top 5 Last Sentences

Okaaaaayyyyyy. I may have a problem with this one because spoilers. I will put the book cover VERY big, so if you haven't read the book, you will know not to look at what the sentence is.

5. More Than This by Patrick Ness
"He thinks, Go in swinging. And he says, 'I'm ready.'"
I love the tone of the ending, and the ambiguity of what happens next.

4. The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami
"In a place far away from anyone or anything, I drifted off for a moment."
This is just a perfect end to a very well done book. I love the fact that it seems to close off nothing, but it really closes off everything.

3. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
"But they would be looking of a ghost."
This ending just makes you want the next book. It means a changing point for Cinder, and I love it!

2. Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken
"'You mean this research?'"
This is just a fuck you moment. Ruby wanted to just shove her success in Clancy's face. And she did; in the most sassy way possible. And GIVE ME ITA!

1. A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin       but really spoilers
"The other two pulled away from her breasts and added their voices to the call, translucent wings unfolding and stirring the air, and for the first time in hundreds of years, the night came alive with the music of dragons."
This one is too good. It was the light in the beginning of the tunnel. It was happiness in the madness. It was perfect!!

These endings were too good. I love these books, and their last sentences. The authors hopefully were 100% satisfied with their last sentence.
