Top Ten Tuesday -- Top Ten Favorite Beginnings/Endings In Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme brought to you at The Broke and the Bookish!! Each week we will be releasing a top ten book related list for you all to enjoy!
This one took some work just because I had to try to rack my brain for beginnings or endings. I ended up going through all my bookshelves writing them down as I went!
Top Ten Favorite Beginnings/Endings in Books

Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1)

1. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins -- I absolutely loved the ending to this. I ended up reading the last couple chapters a few times because I loved it so much!

2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins -- I love the whole series, but I think this book had the best ending out of all of them. It wrapped up nicely with just a bit of need for the next book.
 The Time Traveler's WifeHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7)
3. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger -- Have the tissues ready for this ending. It was fantastic, but it definitely will make you cry.

4. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling -- I was so happy how this wrapped up. There was so much going on at once, but of course, she did a wonderful job ending the series.
Along for the RideThe Fault in Our Stars
5. Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen -- I love all of her books, but the one that really left me with a good feeling when it ended was this one. This is by far my favorite book by her.

6. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green -- If there was ever a book that made me cry, it was this one. It is such an emotional ride, but yet I don't regret reading it at all, no matter the pain it gave me. The ending is wonderful. I am not saying much more than that so I won't give anything away.
When in Doubt, Add ButterDestined (Wings, #4)
7. When in Doubt, Add Butter by Beth Harbison -- I love books that have romance and cooking in them. This one falls into that category. It turns out lovely though and I love the warm fuzzy feeling I got when it ended.
8. Destined by Aprilynne Pike -- I had a love for faerie books. but throughout this series I was so scared I would end up hating this series, but I'm happy to say that I loved the ending. I also had to re-read the last few chapters in this because one time of reading the ending wasn't enough.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)This Is What Happy Looks Like
9. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling -- I don't think this even needs an explanation. I just loved it! I was dragged in right away with the newness that it gave and I was like that through the whole series.
10. This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith -- I wasn't that satisfied with the ending, it just felt incomplete. But I loved the beginning of this book. It dragged me in right away into what I wanted to be a wonderful story. If she would have ended it the way it began, It would have gotten a 5 star rating from me, but it still got a 4 anyway :)
Well, that's my list for the week! Hope you all enjoy!
