Top Ten Book Endings That Left Me With My Mouth Hanging Open:

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and the Bookish! And it's pretty much amazeballs!!

Each week they post a new Top Ten list that one of the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. And everyone else is welcome to join too! So without further ado, here is this weeks Top Ten Tuesday picks!


1. Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready— Really. Really? REALLY?! THAT’S HOW YOU’RE GOING TO END IT?!! “Wow.” That’s all I gotta say about that! :P
Wolfsbane (Nightshade, #2) 
2. Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer— Oh. My. Eff. NO! Just no. The whole damn book I was waiting for this moment! FOR. THIS. MOMENT. And right when I get there—BAM! It ends! Yeah, you know what I’m talking about! *cough, Ren, cough*

3. Delirium by Lauren Oliver— O_O When i finished this book I may have screamed and cursed and cried. I could NOT believe that’s how the story ended. Why!? Why, oh why?!!? *SOBS*  Dudes...the ending still haunts me to this day! GAH! I need the sequel! 

If I Die (Soul Screamers, #5)4. If I Die by Rachel Vincent— This book...THIS BOOK!! SO. MANY. HEARTS. Oh my gosh, the ending was SO FLIPPIN’ MINDBLOWING!! I was freakin’ out, sweating, crying, swooning, you name it—it happened during the ending of this book! EEEEEEEEEP! Just thinking about it gives me the butterflies! SQUEEEEEE!

5. Vanish by Sophie Jordan— WHAAA?! Where are the last 100 pages!? What’s going on?! What’s going to happen?! AHHHHH!! This whole book was incredible and the ending was a HUFE cliffhanger...IT LEFT ME SPEECHLESS! I didn’t even know how to form words after I finished this book. I was in a slump for dayzzz!! The ending was pretty much bomb! 

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3)6. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins— The Epilogue, Real or Not Real? Unfortunately, real. This book left my mouth hanging open in an oh-my-gosh-is-this-epilogue-for-real kind of way....I think we should just all pretend that the epilogue never happened.

7. Enclave by Ann Aguirre— I repeat, WHAA? Where are the last 100 pages?! What’s going on!?! What’s going to happen!? AHHHHHHHH!

If I Stay (If I Stay #1)8. If I Stay by Gayle Forman— One more time, WHAAA? Where are the last 100 pages?! What’s going to happen?! AAAAAHHH!!! My. Heart. Died. A little with this ending. I had all this hope and then—BAM! It ends. To say I cried massive amounts of tears would be an understatement.

9. Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel— Okay so the ending only had me worried for like 2.5 seconds because I flipped a couple of pages and BAM! An excerpt from Stolen Nights! Does it count if I say the end of that excerpt left my mouth agape?! Because it was CRAZY! DUDES! HE. IS. ALIVE! And that’s all I’m sayin’!

Crescendo (Hush, Hush, #2)10. Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick— ARE YOU FOR REAL?! I just found out who the Black Hand was and then-BOOM! (I picked a new explosive sound...) It ends. One of the most cliffiest cliffys ever! Thank GOSH SILENCE IS OUT TODAY! HUZZAH!


  1. I don't understand peoples' confusion about the ending of Mockingjay. It fit with the world and the overall tone of the books. It was as close to a happy ending as they were gonna get.

  2. Gah! Sorry to double comment on you. Trying to get your follower list to cooperate. >.> Wanted to let you know that I think your blog is cute and we both seem to share a love for fictional boys. These might be stupid questions, but I'll ask them anyway:

    1. Who is Logan?
    2. Who is Ren?


  3. I was so please with the ending of Infinite Days. It was a big surprise, but I really liked him, so I was happy he was alive.

  4. I totally forgot about Enclave and Shade, but they both left me with a slack jaw too.

  5. Everyone is complaining about the epilogue of Mockingjay. Why? I thought it was a fitting ending to this series.

  6. Hi, stopping by to read whats on your list.

  7. I am reading If I Stay at the moment and now I am really worried about the ending :-)

  8. I had Delirium and If I Stay on my list as well. I haven't actually finished Mockingjay yet because with everything I've been hearing, I'm not sure it's going to end the way I want it to!

  9. I totally ran out of room to add Crescendo! But I totally agree about Delirium and If I Die. Was totally mind-blowing. Oh that ending. I just read it again and am just so much more in love with that book than I was before!

    Oh and yeah, Shade. Loved that ending and was devastated. I guess I slightly forgot because having read Shine, it changed things! Still and always will be Team Logan though!

  10. I totally agree with you on Wolfsbane!!!

  11. ha, love your reactions! I laughed at your Enclave one. that's on my TBR list, but a friend of mine had the same reaction!

  12. YES YES YES to Mockingjay. W.T.F.????

    And mine would be Enclave too. OMG where the hell is Outpost?

    A few people picked If I Stay but I was ok with it. lol

    Haven't read the other ones yet.

  13. Awesome picks. Some I haven't read yet, but I have to agree with you on Wolfsbane, Delirium, and Crescendo. For Mockingjay, I donno. I liked the ending, but I still felt like there were other things that could've been wrapped up with certain people and I also did not like how some people "left". lol (sorry, trying not to spoil for the two people out there that haven't read it yet :-P)
