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

Top Ten Tuesday is a fabulous weekly event hosted over at Broke and Bookish. Every week they have a new list of Top Tens to answer.
This week's topic is Endings That Left Me With My Mouth Hanging Open. So Voilá!

    Endings That Left Me With My Mouth Hanging Open

1. The Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson 
Wow. Just wow. Completely mindblowing! I thought, 'No way will his ending be able to top the books.' I have never been so completely wrong in my life!

2. The Maze Runner by James Dashner                                                                                            Total cliffhanger at the end! I was dying until the next book came out.

3. The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan
This is the final book in one of my favorite junior fiction series. The conclusion didn't skimp, and everything  ended exactly as it should.

4. The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner
Ah, a beautiful ending. It had me squeaking with joy and eagerly awaiting The King of  Attolia.

5.  The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale
So romantic and so charming! I've read this book over and over again, and the ending still gives me happy goosebumps!

6.  The Last Battle by C. S. Lewis                                                                                        
Sometimes I read this book just so I can get to the ending, which sounds weird, I know. But the ending is that amazing. I wouldn't change a thing. The finale of this book leaves me happy for the rest of the day.

7.  Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling
Of course this book is on the list. Those of you who have read it know how it goes above and beyond the other books. This ending leaves you feeling like you've just snuggled with a fuzzy blanket, or hugged a good friend.

8. Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt                                                                                  
There has to be more to this book! It can't end that way! I mean, sure, It makes you think. But who wants to think, anyway?! Huh?! (leave a comment if you felt that way too)

9. The Messenger by Lois Lowry 
A bitter/sweet ending, but fitting, considering the book. Very moving.

10. The Bartimeas Trilogy by Jonathon Stroud 
Also bitter/sweet. But perfect. So perfect. Possibly my favorite.

And there you have it!
Be sure to go here and check out the other blogs participating in Top Ten Tuesday!


  1. I definitely agree with choosing Harry Potter, although I chose The Half Blood Prince. Cool to see another person picking The Last Battle, too. I didn't think of it until I saw it on another blog, but it definitely fits here.

  2. Yay I've never met anyone who loved The Goose Girl as much as me before! I've read it twice already cause it makes me so happy and bubbly inside lol!

  3. I loved the ending of Deathly Hallows. I was so pleased with it. I was very surprised with how it came about.

  4. oh no besides HP i have no clue. i shall choose one for my next year TBR list.
