It's happened to all of us. You're approaching the end of a book, waiting for everything to resolve itself and have all the loose ends tied up when - bam! Cliffhanger ending. The book finishes, and you have no way to find out what happens next without reading the sequel.
The question is, do you find the cliffhanger a good thing or a bad thing?
Back when I mostly read older releases, I liked cliffhangers. They made me eagerly pick up the next one and tear through that, then read that book's cliffhanger, and move on to the next book, all the way down the series. There was something satisfying about finding out something you're craving to know.
But now, most of the books I read are recent releases, and I can't pick up the next book for, on average, a year. In these cases, a cliffhanger ending frustrates me because the suspense it gives doesn't last for an entire year, but makes me unsatisfied with the resolution given.
What do you think? Cliffhangers or no cliffhangers?
