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

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the ladies at The Broke and the Bookish. This week is a freebie week, so I decided to pick the Top Ten Book Endings That Left Me With My Mouth Hanging Open.

I cried, I was in shock, I was crushed.

Surprise doesn't even begin to describe the ending of this book.

If you've read it, you'd know.


:O! Seriously.

Not only did this leave me with my mouth open, it also left me in tears.

Whoa. Whoa.

Did not see that coming!

Sequel cliffhangers with an insane ending. Yep, that pretty much sums it up.

Here's what I wrote on Goodreads: "NOOOOOOOO!!!! What kind of ending is that?! I can't wait another year and half for book 3. I just can't! AHHHHH!!!!".

And that's all, folks! What books left your mouth hanging open?


  1. agree with you on the books about mouth dropped :)

  2. Excellent topic choice! I complete agree with 80% of these (basically the ones I've read). Especially Across the Universe. I was like, WTF?! for a good 10 minutes after.

    I picked Top Ten Book That Broke My Heart:

  3. Insurgent is actually a book that left my mouth hanging open when I reached the end ;)

    The Forest of Hands and Teeth is one that I definitely agree with though!

  4. Lets see the books that had my mouth hanging open in either sputtering incoherency or pure speechlessness like a gold fish?

    The Faceless Ones by Derek Landy
    Variant by Robinson Wells
    The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong
    Glass House by Rachel Caine
    Reckoning by Lili St. Crow
    Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan

    There are probably more but these are the ones that are fresh in my head that had me going "Wait what? Where is the rest of it?!" or "WTF just happened, you did not just end this book like that!!" or just "INSERT LONG STRING OF CURSE WORDS HERE".

  5. I picked top ten TBR fall books since I have an endless supply of them:


  6. Great list, Lena! I definitely agree about Nightshade, Daughter Of Smoke & Bone, Matched, and Crescendo. I will have to check out the others. I love endings that leave me shocked.

  7. yes and yes and yes to Nightshade and Daughter of Smoke and Bone! I can't wait until Days of Blood and Starlight comes out.

    Racquel @ The Book Barbies♥

  8. TFoHaT almost killed me.

    A recent one for me would have to be Girl of Nightmares.


I love, love, love comments, and therefore, love you! Thanks for dropping by!
