Last Lines: 10 Mind-Blowing Last Lines! // The Importance Of Last Lines?

Hey hey y’all! Yours truly just had the most brilliant idea *I’m pretty sure people have already done this, buttttttt 😂*

So recently I did the “Amazing First Lines” post, and now I have decided to do a “Mind-blowing Last Lines” post!!!

Both are super important and kind of fun to read about, so here I am…and here we gooooo


Last Lines. Why are they so important?

The last line of a story has to wrap everything up, and possibly set up the events for the next book (if it’s a series). Maybe not exactly the last last line (like maybe the last paragraph), but it’s a sacred thing 😂 If a last line is absolutely mind-blowing and amazing, it kinds of bribes us to continue the story (aka start the next book if it’s a series), or leaves us wanting more.

Disclaimer 1: These are not listed in any specific order! And I wrote comments for only a few quotes, not all…

Disclaimer 2: Keep in mind that I might have had to cut quotes, so there would be no spoilers! HOWEVER, some quotes might be a SLIGHT spoiler, so I’LL PUT A STAR NEXT TO THE TITLE OF THE BOOK! 


Without any other delays, here are 10 mind-blowing last lines!

1. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas  🌟

51E6PlwTGGL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

“We may not get to choose how we die, but we can choose how we live. The universe may forget us, but it doesn’t matter. Because we are the ants, and we’ll keep marching on.”

  1. I was listening to Looking for Alaska on audiobook and literally opened this post as I was listening to the last lines! That’s such a coincidence! I love all of these, but my favorite is the one from ACOTAR too ❤️ It’s so powerful and full of intrigue! Lovely post 😊
