My true love gave to me: TWO REALLY BAD ENDIIIIIINGS
Erm, excuse me? True love fail.
It’s the second day of #MerryBookmas hosted by HailsHeartsNYC! Today we are discussing two of our least-favorite endings to books or series. I’m excited about this because I get to mention some books that I never talk about. Because the ending made me hate them. Ya know. The usual.
The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender
I can not for the life of me figure out why this book is so popular. I will admit that the writing is beautiful and the cover is gorgeous, but other than that it has no redeeming qualities. I HATED the ending. It still makes me feel sick thinking about it. I think it was utterly revolting and unnecessary. This is probably the darkest book I’ve ever read.
Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
I really hated this book in general. I hated all of the characters except the admiral. I am forgiving Jane for her terrible ending in this book because technically she didn’t publish it herself; maybe she would have changed it?! The entire book is basically thrown out in the last 30 pages. And it’s a LONG book. So I was mad because I didn’t like the ending match-ups and because the entire book had felt like a waste. All of the character development was completely erased. Just blah.
I’m sorry for this incredibly negative post! Just channeling my inner Grinch ;)
I’ll write again soon! Until then, keep reading!
