Favourite Finishing Lines Friday (01/07/2016): Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins


A book’s final sentence is like a ribbon that ties together the plot of the book, which is handed to us readers, and is also the final sentence that contributes to our impression about the book – whether we like the book, or not.

There are many types of last lines – Lines that conclude something; Open endings that leave things to our imagination; Twists that leave us staring at the book with our mouths ajar; And then there are the most feared cliffhangers which drive us to kill for the next book.

An effective well-framed finishing line embeds the story in our minds and it lasts for a long time, even after the book is read. In this weekly meme, I’m going to pick a book whose finishing line I absolutely loved.Week'sBookfire2fire2fire2fire2catchingfire


This was the definitely the best YA Dystopian novel I’ve ever read. Perfection.

Finishing Line:


That line was a total game-changer and one of the biggest cliffhangers of all time. It literally made me scramble to get my hands on the next book and continue reading. Loved the series.



Did you like this line? What’s your favourite finishing line?

  1. This is definitely one of my favourite final lines (and it’s so irritating that on the new Hunger Games covers, it’s on Mockingjay, because a) it’s the wrong book, and b) spoilers!). I also love the ending of We Were Liars (I suffer migraines. I do not suffer fools. I like a twist of meaning. I endure.), because it’s similar to the start of the book but means something completely different after the events of the book.

      1. Awesome. I was having a look at a couple of posts on your Page and there are a few I would like to try. Can I ask how you get your images such as the little diamonds or flames?

      2. The flames are GIFs I get online. It all comes down to how you use them. I reduce the size of the original GIF and align copies of the same beside each other to give the appearance of the border. The diamond is from this font called “Sprinkles colors”. It is a really cool font and instead of of the dollar symbol, you get the diamond. Everything is available online and you could use it too!
