Super Six Sunday: Cliffhangers.....


Super Six Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely ladies at Bewitched Bookworms. It was inspired by Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week features a book related topic that helps you highlight your Super Six.

Topic:

Super Six Killer Endings

Cliffhangers, the killer ending ...Oh, how I hate them, and yet kind of love them, because they make me stick around longer. I'm a glutton for punishment and have to know what happens.

These gifs describe me pretty well when it comes to cliffhangers and they fit perfectly for the books I'm about to mention.


So, with out further ado....
In no particular order.

1. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Where did that come from?!

2. An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gaboldon

Keep in mind, with this book, it's not just one cliffhanger, oh no! There was at least 3 to 4! That's how many characters are left in the balance! And I'm still waiting!!!! Hurry up 2014!!

3. The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan

You left my characters to that unknown fate?! Their poor friends shocked and unknowing like I am.

4. Insurgent by Veronica Roth

You give us that big hunk of info in the very last pages and end it...Thankfully the wait is almost over!

5. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

This really wasn't a cliffhanger per se, but the fact J.K. Rowling had the guts to do what she did, made me question what just happened.

6.Covenant of War by Cliff Graham
Yes, it is a Biblical war story and it is bloody and there is death all around, but this ending left me a little speechless. I'm so ready to read the next book.

I still haven't read Insurgent ... or even Divergent! Don't judge me haha.

Agree about HP though. That ending ... I just can't!

Allie, no judging! I have a friend waiting to read them so she can read all 3 together.

HP, that was an ending!

Thanks for stopping by!
