                                                                       ~The Epilogue Challenge~

We have a tie in the voting for the 2013 Featured Challenge, so we've added this one, too!

Some authors, such as William Shakespeare or Susan Elizabeth Phillips, are known for writing great epilogues. No, I don't mean the kind that just set up the next book in the series! You know the kind that tie everything up, or show us the characters in a future setting.

Other authors, such as Teresa Medeiros for Goodnight Tweetheart have done so to satisfy reader demands.

Rules? Read a book with a good to great epilogue. Or even one that is just the epilogue, such as Julia Quinn's Epilogue II for the Bridgertons series that she is working on.

Goal? You set the level.

When? Start Date: 00:01 on January 1, 2013 until December 31, 2013.

Where?: Join the Challenge that appears here, on our Home Page, or it can be found at this link.

How?: For additional help in understanding how to join, check out instructions under “GoodReads How To...” “Join a Featured Group Challenge.” This requires adding a specific bookshelf to your bookshelves. Remember, if your bookshelf has more than one word, you must add a HYPHEN in between.

Special Note: You won't be able to set you goals on our Home Page until January 1st!

Feel free to let us know what you think of the epilogue in this thread.

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments I will try this one. But how will I know if it has an epilogue until I read it? Hope ya'll will give some recommendations ☺

Abigail Sharpe (abigailsharpe) | 2010 comments You know, I'm really not find of epilogues. But I am fond of Julia Quinn.


message 7: by Lisa Kay, Tinker Bell (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments Great, Susan, Pamela, & Karen. Welcome to the challenge. Yes, I think recommendations are going to be important for this one.

I don't have many, but I remember The Promise of Jenny Jones by Maggie Osborne has a great epilogue, if you like Romantic Westerns.

I've been meaning to get to Now a Bride (Mistress Trilogy #2.5) by Mary Balogh ; maybe this challenge will nudge me to read it.

Another one for me would be Reason Enough by Megan Hart ...which is an epilogue for the wonderful - but powerful - Dirty by Megan Hart .


Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 257 comments I loved the epilogue in The Gamble (Colorado Mountain, #1) by Kristen Ashley

Lisa - (Aussie Girl) | 13013 comments Congrats Nikki. I agree that epilogue from Clockwork Princess was a doozie. And On the Island was really satisfying ending to a great book.

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments Wow! Great job, Nikki! Congrats!
