When it comes to reading books, there is nothing better then a great twist in the end that leaves you with your mouth hanging open. It seems to me as if a lot of books have somewhat of a predictable ending, at least when it comes to a romance plot, so its nice to be taken by complete surprise when you least expect it! Here are some of the books that have left me standing like a deer caught in the headlights....
City of Bones By Cassandra Clare
Although I could kind of see it coming, nothing prepared me for the ending of City of Bones. I'm sure anyone who has read it knows what I am referring to. Without spoiling it for those who haven't read it yet.... let's just say you find out something interesting about two of the characters!
White Cat by Holly Black
Maybe I was just so caught up in the magic of this book that I didn't see the end coming, but I definitely didn't expect Cassel's final con to turn out the way it did! Oh how I love a good con!
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
Is the narrator crazy? Is she being haunted? What really happened to Rebecca? Only the nice twist in the end will let you know the answers to all of these questions and more!
Mockingjay By Suzanne Collins
This book left me with my mouth hanging open for a much different reason....because everything happened so fast! One moment Katniss is leading a team to take down the capitol... and next thing you know the entire book is wrapped up!
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Don't you just love when authors throw in little epilogues at the end that reveals something mysterious about one of the characters? Its like a little shot of adrenaline that makes you desperate to find out what happens next and scream "NOOOOO!" when you realize that the sequel isn't coming out for another year. That pretty much describes exactly what happened to me at the end of Clockwork Angel.
