Top 5 Tuesday | Favorite Ending Lines

Top Five

So, I had this great idea that I’d use the ending lines from the same books I chose for opening lines.  I was so excited, like giving readers a sneak peek.  I realized pretty quickly that picking out ending lines is a lot harder, because it’s so easy to accidentally post a spoiler.

With that said, I think I did an okay job writing ending lines without choosing books that gave away big surprises.  Like, obviously a romance novel will probably end happy, so I don’t count that as a spoiler.  However, if you would, you may want to be careful readng below.  They are the ending lines of some pretty awesome books.  

Continue at your own risk.

“He’d make it out of gopherwood, like Noah’s Arc, two storeys high, with a view he could look out on every day with wonder.  A house for Tate and Narnie and Jude and Fitz and for their families.  A home to come back to every day of their lives.
Where they would all belong or long to be.
A place on the Jellicoe Road.”

“‘So, don’t take this the wrong way, but are you sisters? Friends?’
‘Or in a polygamous lesbian relationship,’ Gus whispered in Casey’s ear.
‘Or in a polygamous lesbian relationship,’ Casey said.
The We Three Queens smiled and joined hands, curling their fingers into one another’s.
‘It’s so funny you should ask that,’ Bertha said.
‘We thought it was obvious,’ Bernice said.
‘Exactly,’ Betty said.  ‘Why, anyone can see that we’re-‘”

How to Be a Normal Person

“She swallowed hard, tears streaming down her cheeks. ‘There is so much I have to say to you.’
Crow walked toward her, arms outstretched like a man in a dream, which he was, in a way.
Sometimes a dream is enough.”

The Crimson Crown by Cinda Williams Chima


“I am Mary Iris Malone, and I see all things new.
‘I’m blind,” I whisper. ‘In my right eye.’
Because sometimes a thing’s not a thing until you say it out loud.”

Mosquitoland by David Arnold


“‘Jamie tightened his hold on Theo’s shaking body. ‘I’m going to need to hear you say it.’
Theo looked at Jamie over his shoulder and grinned. ‘I love… that you’re such a good swimmer.’
Jamie pinched their lips together and stole the rest of Theo’s words away. ‘Save the games for later.’
Theo kissed him back. ‘I love you, Mr Jamie Cooper. I 
love you.”

About Birdie

Don’t look for her in any bar, club, crazy raging party, or anywhere there may be a large gathering of strangers. She’s more likely to be found tucked into the corner of the couch watching one of her favorite shows, or preferably under a comforter with her current novel.
