Super Six Sunday is an original bookish meme created by Bewitched Bookworms and inspired by “Top Ten Tuesday” from The Broke and The Bookish .  Today’s topic is:

Super 6 Killer Book Endings

And killer in “I want to kill this book by throwing it at a wall” kind of endings.  Cliffhangers.  We love to hate them don’t we?  They can make for a spectacular ending, but then we have to wait on pins and needles for the next book to come out. So what are six of my favorite killer endings?  Let’s see…

six

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

I mean who wasn’t just left with.. WHAT? written all over there faces at that end?

five

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Umm, Jace’s who now?

four

Across the Universe by Beth Revis

This book starts off slow, but once it gets going it doesn’t stop, that is until it SLAMS into that ending. You.will.not.see.it.coming.

three

Everbound by Brodi Ashton

I suffered from slack-jawed at the end of this book.  COLE!

two

Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

Actually, Goblet of Fire and Order of the Phoenix could fit in this category too.  But this one, this one stabbed me in the heart.  I’m pretty sure I suffered a bout of depression for days after finishing HBP.

Solitary by Travis Thrasher

This was one of the most unprecedented, shocking endings I’ve ever read.  I raged and raged at Travis Thrasher for a few days.  Then, I begrudgingly picked up book two and moved on.  In hindsight, I’ve come to accept the ending, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it!

So, those are my six?  What are some books you love to rage about when it comes to the end?
