I haven’t done this meme in awhile, and I miss it! So let’s get this party started, shall we? Just fyi, I don’t read a lot of scary or suspenseful books, so this list just qualifies what I think is shocking or surprising- however wimpy that may be. (i.e. very wimpy).
Top Ten Book Endings that Left Me with my Mouth Hanging Open
1Divergent by Veronica Roth— My mouth was hanging open from the sheer awesomeness of this book. The ending was pretty crazy too, but overall, I was salivating. (Sorry for that mental image… 😀 )
2Legacy by Cayla Kluver—For some reason, I just didn’t see the ending of this book coming. Like, at all.
3The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson—I just finished this book last night, and it was fantastic! It rocked so hard, but it’s intense and crazy all at the same time.
4The Restorer by Amanda Stevens— I was creeped out so much by this book, but the ending really took me over the edge. If you like suspenseful books that mainly take place in cemeteries, then this book is for you. Meanwhile, even writing about this book will give me nightmares tonight. *shivers*
5City of Bones by Cassandra Claire— I was devastated and thralled by this ending. I knew it would get fixed somehow, but I was in shock trying to cope with everything!
6The Sweet Far Thing by Libbra Bray—This is the 3rd book in the Gemma Doyle series and it had me reeling. I seriously couldn’t have guessed the ending of this book in a million years.
7Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins— I probably don’t need to explain this one too much. It’s just crazy! 172 days till the movie…but who’s counting…
8The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemsin— What a strange, strange little book. My mouth was hanging open from confusion, boredom and awe at the weirdness I’d just endured.
9Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson— What a fantastic book! I haven’t read the rest of the series, but the surprise ending of this book was a-mazing!!
10Going after Cacciato by Tim O’Brien— I had to read this book in high school, and the end wasn’t totally expected but it still caught me off-guard. It is a brutal but moving book.
