Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books That Left My Mouth Hanging Open!

I'm participating in Top Ten Tuesday at The Broke and the Bookish. I'm not a meme kind of a person, but I think this one is fun. So here it goes, my Top Ten Books That Left My Mouth Hanging Open. 

  1. The Hunger Games and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins- The cliffhangers in these 2 books are unreal! I was going crazy needing to know what was happening next! Best series EVER!
  2. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins- I did NOT like the ending of this series. I'm sorry to say it, but I didn't. I just didn't. I tried not to throw the book across the room through the whole thing.  The ending was trite in my opinion, and I had invested 3 yrs into this series and this book made it seem like I didn't know the characters at all. Hated it.
  3. These is My Words by Nancy Turner- I'm going to keep adding this to my top 10 list until you read it! When I turned the last page I was crying so hard that I had to call my sister. I just wept on the phone with her. Best book ever! You need to read it!
  4. Godmother:The Secret Cinderella Story by Carolyn Turgeon- The ending of this book made me shocked.  I had to keep asking, "did that just really happen?" What kind of ending is that?!?!" I was furious. Shouldn't have been that way. At all. What a waste. 
  5. Illusions by Aprilynne Pike- What a cliffhanger! This is the 3rd installment in this faerie series and I love it!  The ending made me want to crawl into the book and hope to find the rest of this story.  I'm dying to know what happens. Plus I'm a huge Tamani fan.  
  6. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne- The ending of this book left me in shock.  I actually couldn't speak.  My hand was over my mouth and I gasped but no words would come.  Not for hours after I finished.  Such a powerful book. Deserves a place by The Diary of Anne Frank.
  7. City of Bones  by Cassandra Clare- If you haven't read this series then you must be living under a rock! When I finished this book it was about 2am and I was in bed.  I couldn't wait to start the next book so I went into the Kindle Store and boom, had the next book in 60 seconds and started reading it! I was tired the next morning, but I couldn't stop reading! AMAZING!
  8. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger- This book left me in awe.  Really. It is so beautifully written.  I was, of course, crying at the end. An elegy to love and loss. Amazing.
  9. That's all I've got. Maybe I'll think of some more.  
What books left you with a WHAT THE HECK?! at the ending?


  1. everyone is featuring Suzanne Collins' books on these lists :-) I am so happy that I didn't read them until they were all in the stores, spared me the agony of waiting.

  2. I'm very curious to see where Illusions goes too. I am also Team Tamani.

  3. #6! I have Night on my TBR pile, but I'll have to see about adding Striped Pajamas, too. I don't know, though. There's only so much trauma I can take.

  4. Your first book is on almost every list, the second book is growing in popularity. I place it on my TBR list. I got to read Godmother so its on my TBR list.

  5. so many didnt like the ending of Mockingjay. I felt fine with it, didnt love it but didnt hate it either.

    Yara @ Once Upon a Twilight!

  6. Completely agree with the Hunger Games. It was a jaw dropping series in and of itself. Also I really need to read City of Bones. =]
    Here is my Top Ten

  7. I did not like the Mockingjay ending either, though I think I didn't hate it quite as much as you :)

    LOVE These is my Words. Good stuff.

  8. I wan't impressed with Mockingjay...the ending felt incomplete to me. I'm glad the Mortal Instruments made it.

    Check out my first Top Ten Tuesday:


  9. Out of The Hunger Games trilogy, I feel like Catching Fire had the most WHAT THE HECK ending for me.

  10. i LOVED These is My Words and i made my mom read it too! Such a sad ending. but such a great booK!


I love to hear what you think.
