So You Just Read a Cliffhanger Ending (A Gif Post!)

Since I've decided I want to try using gifs in reviews and discussion posts, I decided to put together this fun and random gif post about various cliffhanger reactions. I hope you enjoy it. :)

Various reactions after reading a cliffhanger ending

Not understanding what the big deal of that big revelation is
(This is a recent reaction of mine.)

Irritation

Confusion
Did that REALLY JUST HAPPEN?

Bummed feeling

Big and dramatic reaction
NOOOO . . . WHYYY . . .
(This can be both positive and negative.)

Devastation in two steps
Wait . . . is that the ending?

IT IS THE END.

Straight to book hangover
I'm just . . . I'm done.

You hope it's a joke
*Looks at release date for sequel*

Which of these reactions do you go through after reading cliffhangers? 
Which gif describes your reaction to the last cliffhanger you read?

    1. I mostly like cliffhangers, but man, they can be painful.

  3. Supernatural GIFs for the win!!
    Closely followed by the bunny one!!
    Ok, the one cliffhanger that is still killing me and that I did a "refuse to believe" was The Falconer! I adore that book, but man that was an awful awful ending!!

    1. The Falconer . . . that's actually the one that I was thinking of when I picked the first gif out. The ending didn't work for me.

  4. I have definitely had the "and?" reaction, and it bums me out! Like, I am supposed to be shocked, but meh. Most of the time, I have the "looks at release date for sequel" reaction. Mostly I am just hoping I remember what the cliffhanger even was by the time the sequel comes out (honestly, 9 out of 10 times, I haven't a clue how the last book ended, and I start trolling Goodreads for spoilers from the last book!)

    Love these GIFs!

    1. The "and?" reaction is the worst. :(

  5. I usually have the irritation face. There are some cliffhangers that work, that many of them just... don't. It's like why must you end it this way and not end it properly??? I'm more irritated, but I'll still feel compelled to read the rest!

    1. I can definitely see why a lot of people would be irritated. :D I usually like them, actually.

  6. LOL these are basically all of my reactions on cliffhangers! The one I think that I make of the most is the confusion and devastation haha.

  7. I pretty much feel a variation of these depending on the book I just finished. One cliffhanger that got me with the feels was Until I Die by Amy Plum. Like OMG NO

  8. All the GIFs apply. I've had devastation the most though. The worst ones were Insurgent by Veronica Roth and Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas.

    1. Uh oh . . . I'm reading Crown of Midnight soon.

  9. AAAAAh I love the supernatural gifs. I swear they have a gif for everything. All these reactions are so true and I feel everyone of them.

  10. YAY GIFS!

    You know, now that I think about it, I don't really think I've read any books with really good cliffhangers (and by good I mean ones that just destroy you). Then again, I think it's because I had the next book literally in my hands. hahaha

    1. I almost never read a sequel right afterward (most of the time, I don't even have it), so cliffhangers do tend to destroy me. :D

  11. This is so funny! HAHAH Yes to all! Worse cliffhanger ever is written by Sarah J. Mass (Crown of Midnight)

    2. Oh man, I bet I'm going to be the bunny for that book.

  12. Haha, all of the above! Really hate #1 though, you go through the whole book (especially with mysteries) wondering what's the catch, etc and then...let down. Not worth it. Okay, my last read was The Young World, and I'm picking both not understanding and irritation, whooo. :(

    1. Number one is the worst. It leaves a meh impression of the book. :(

  13. Oh my God I love this! I'm laughing my ass off at all of these gifs--specifically Dean's and Castiel's!

  14. Hehe, love this post! I'm definitely generally on the irritation side of things, though sometimes I'll hear all about the cliffhanger ending and get to it and feel very much like that top one, good call :D

    1. The top one is a disappointing one. :(
