Thanks to the gals of The Broke and The Bookish for hosting this meme every week!
This topic was a little tricky for me since I have a hard time remembering anything about a book after a month or two. There are just so many new stories that I can’t keep everything in my head D: . However, that also meant that if I did remember a beginning or ending of a book, it belongs on this list since it was memorable enough for even my head to hold on to ;-).
Each of these books made it onto this list for their own unique reason, which I’m happy to see! The Weight of Souls opens immediately with Taylor tracking down a murderer and letting a mysterious Darkness consume him, so we know right away what kind of stakes she is playing for. Siege and Storm grabbed me with Sturmhond of course ;-). Finally, I’m so excited for Steelheart to hit shelves because that beginning is epic, all the feels!!!
I really only have one criteria for an amazing ending: surprise me but make sense! I love twists that in hindsight are so obvious but that I don’t see coming. All of these books have that aspect to them either because the author went in a completely different direction than I thought, or because they took it to a level I really didn’t think they would go (no one is safe from death in these books!). A good ending can rescue a book that I haven’t been enjoying, though all of these I loved from the first page ;-).
What are you favorites this week?? Link me up, I’m always on the lookout for more books with twists :D
