Booking Through Thursday

Today's Questions:

1. Do YOU like books with complicated plots and unexpected endings?
2. What book with a surprise ending is your favorite? Or your least favorite?

I love books with twists at the end - quite possibly my favorite kind. I think it's one of the main reasons I typically avoid the romance/chick-lit genre - because you know how it's going to end by the time you're halfway through with the book.
My favorites with unexpected endings are Bel Canto by Anne Patchett and Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane. Just this week I finished In The Woods by Tana French, which also had a great surprise ending that I didn't see coming. It was my Nest January Book Club book, and I recommend it for anyone who enjoys suspense. I much prefer the Hitchockian-style suspense of having no idea what will happen next to the blood and gore of many modern "thrillers".
