Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish
This weeks topic is…a freebie! So I decided to choose books that made me emotional.
10. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
Even though I wasn’t a big fan of Before I Fall, especially the characters, I got really emotional towards the end of everything and shed a couple tears.
9. Just One Wish by Janette Rallison
Janette Rallison’s books are usually fluffy, cheesy, silly books. And while this was all that, it was so much more. And just rereading the ending while writing this post made me start bawling again.
8. Hattie Big Sky by Kirby Larson
I read this a long time ago, and only remember bits and pieces of the plot, but I do remember one particular scene which made me cry. The whole story is really touching.
7. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
This is such a classic, and when I read the book or whenever I watch the movie, I get really emotional thinking about it.
6. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
A very complicated, yet simple story about a girl trying to find out exactly who she is. One scene in particular stuck out to me, and made me turn into a big crybaby.
5. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling
Who didn’t cry during the last Harry Potter book? Thinking back to the first time I read the last book, I don’t think there’s a moment that I wasn’t emotional. And the epilogue…
4. The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
I really didn’t want anything to do with this book. It looked and sounded boring, but it was beautiful. The story of Anne Frank is so sad, and Anne’s happiness and hope astounded me.
3. Looking for Alaska by John Green
I wasn’t a big fan of the first half of this book, and then BAM! everything changes. It was an emotional roller coaster, full of laughs and tears (mostly tears). And I still haven’t read The Fault in Our Stars.
2. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
I honestly think the beginning was the most emotional part for me. Sure, the whole book is emotional, but immediately everyone is thrown into these horrible conditions. And last chapter may have been even more emotional than the whole book. So yeah, lots of tears were shed.
1. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Well, the whole series was an emotional roller coaster, but this book was like watching a train wreck. Everything was horrible and there was no hope left, but I couldn’t stop reading. And so I finished this book around midnight crammed in a tiny car with lots of people, and I couldn’t stop crying. They still laugh at me.
