Top Ten OMG WTF JUST HAPPENED endings

Sometimes a book or series’ ending can be mind-blowing and sometimes it just blows.
10. Nevermore by James Patterson
Patterson didn’t have much of a choice with this one. He created too many plotlines to be able to solve them all. Still, the fact that he doesn’t give closure to the majority of the main characters, including my favourite character, makes it impossible to understand let alone appreciate this ending.
9. Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer
When you spend basically three books building up to a battle, there sure as hell better be a battle. I’m not pro-character death or anything, but I am pro-endings that don’t wuss out.
8. The End by Lemony Snicket
He promised us an unhappy ending. I just didn’t believe him until that last page.
7. Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
This is the first book ending that made me rage. Thinking about it, I’m still in a rage.
6. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Everyone told me I was going to cry, and then I thought I’d made it through to the end, that they’d exaggerated, that everything was going to be okay, and then nothing was okay. Nothing could ever be okay ever again.
5. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
I literally had to read the ending of this book five times to understand what was happening, and even then I didn’t really get it until I read Mockingjay. This ending actually gave me whiplash!
When you spend an entire book believing one thing to be true and discover another, it changes your whole perspective. I can promise Days of Blood and Starlight‘s (my review is coming soon!) ending is just as twisty!
I don’t want to talk about it.
Ahahahaha I actually flipped out at this ending! I couldn’t believe it! This is the kind of ending that makes you want to read the next immediately, but in a good way!
THIS ENDING IS BRILLIANT AND WILL NEVER BE OKAY.
