Question of the Week : Have you ever snuck a peek at the end of a book before reading it?
Hell Yeah I have. I can’t even count how many times I have done this. I do it with books I get from the library all the time. Those books tend to be one’s I am not sure I will like so I figure if I enjoy the ending then why not give the book a try. I have also been known to look at the end of a book if it is too intense or if I am dying to see how it ends. But the ending isn’t why I read the books, it is the journey. I love re-reading books over and over again so really knowing the ending doesn’t matter much to me, unless the ending is horrible and therefore it typically won’t start or finish that book.
Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep
I check this book out at the library and wasn’t sure if I would like it. Now I am a Jennifer Estep fan to begin with due to her Elemental Assassin series, but I wasn’t sure how she would do in the YA genre. After reading the end of this book I loved it so much I went back through and skimmed it just so I could move on the the next book and I have been in love with the series since! Just read an ARC of the 3rd book that won’t be out till May 29th, 2012. They just better and better.

Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick
This is another book that I looked at the ending however I thought it was terrible so I just set the book aside. I really enjoyed Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick and was looking forward to seeing what happens with Patch, but reading the ending of this book just did me in. I was so disappointed and it has sat on my shelf never to be held again.
Now it is your turn. Do you take a sneaky-peek at the end of books?
