Today, in the Top Ten Tuesdays the topic is Top Ten Book Endings That Left Me With My Mouth Hanging Open (because of the cliffhanger or because it the ending was MINDBLOWING, etc. Be careful with spoilers on this one!)

1, Cryoburn by Lois McMaster Bujold
If you’ve read it, you probably know why.

2, Rachel Caine: Firestorm
I really didn’t see that ending coming!

3, Khaled Hosseini: A Thousand Splendid Suns
A bitter sweet ending.

4, Xombies: Apocalypse Blues by Walter Greatshell
Another surprising ending.

5, I am Legend by Richard Matheson
Perhaps not surprising to experienced horror readers but it was to me.

6, Stormbringer by Michael Moorcock

7, Dawnbreaker by Jocelynn Drake
A surprising ending for a book in a continuing series.

8,, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N. K. Jemisin
Another surprising ending.

9, Victory of Eagles by Naomi Novik
Yup, a surprising ending but fully in character.

10, Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson
A satisfying ending to the mammoth epic trilogy.
