Top Ten Tuesday (#2)

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This Weeks Top Ten is: Top Ten Book Endings That Left Me With My Mouth Hanging Open
P.S. My lists are in no particular order, they pretty much all have equally mind blowing endings. (though the reasons are all different).

1) Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
This one definitely left my mouth hanging open. All because of one line. (*Spoiler Alert* highlight to see) *"Katniss, there is no District Twelve."*
2) Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick
Because I just couldn't believe what Rule (the town) was doing the WHOLE time!

3) Plague by Michael Grant
I've never read an ending packed with so much action. Boy did Grant shake things up.
4) Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan
One of those books that makes you NEED the sequel RIGHT NOW!
5) Everwild and Everfound by Neal Shusterman
These are in the same series, so I felt the need to put them together. Everwild because "How the heck does the protagonist come back after that!" And Everfound because I've never read a book with a more perfect ending. My mouth was open in awe for that one.

6) Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
Because of what happens to Shay at the end. Holy cow, I was buzzed after that one.

7) Speaker For the Dead by Orson Scott Card
For the domino effect the character's actions had.  (*Spoiler Alert* highlight to see) *They started a freaking war, leading to a planets annihilation. Unless they save said planet in the sequel ,of course. *
8) The Long Walk by Richard Bachman (a.k.a Stephen King)
I really liked the book up till the end. Just because I couldn't figure out what the heck happened.

9) Necropolis by Anthony Horowitz
This one I was open mouthed because it seemed like the characters were back where they started.

10) Perfect by Sara Shepard 
Because at the end, "A" took things to a whole other level!

Well, that's my Top Ten this week. Please comment. Did we have any in common? What was on your list this week?

  1. Oh Catching Fire! I was so tormented by the end of that book that I just HAD to read Mockingjay straight after.
