Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. It’s a super fun to way to connect with other bloggers through one of my favorite things ever… LISTS! :D
Top Ten Books That Broke My Heart a Little
I’m a very emotional person, both in real life and with my fiction, and I get very emotionally invested in the lives of fictional characters, so I tend to cry a lot, haha. I love it when this happens though, even though it’s painful, because it means I really connected with the book and it made me feel.
This is not a full list of ten, because even thinking about these is making my heart hurt. And I’m going to try to be vague to avoid spoilers, but hopefully if you’ve read the books you’ll understand what I mean.
If I Stay by Gayle Forman (I started crying from nearly the first page.)
Where She Went by Gayle Forman (The ENTIRE book. Oh god.)
Graceling by Kristen Cashore (The bit at the end when Katsa confronts Po.)
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (Peeta’s situation, Katniss and Gale’s outcome, Prim.)
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling (Um, duh. Dobby. Forest scene. All the deaths. Fred is still alive in my heart.)
Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger (“Had we but world enough, and time…” This book is even more painful during rereads because you know the significance of certain events ahead of time.)
Fracture by Megan Miranda (The teenage angst in this book is ridiculously painful. I just wanted them to work it out.)
Sally Lockhart Trilogy by Phillip Pullman (Specifically an event in the second book, The Shadow in the North. Guys, if you’ve read it, you know what I’m talking about.)
What are your favorite heartbreaking books? I can already feel a sob-inducing marathon coming up...
