Top Ten Books I Had VERY Strong Emotions About
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature on The Broke and the Bookish.
Now for ten books I had very strong emotions about!
1) New Moon by Stephenie Meyer.
I remember being so depressed while reading New Moon! I read it in a day, but midway through my parents stopped me so we could go to dinner as a family. I felt so sad at dinner, because Bella was so sad during New Moon. I knew I had to finish the book that night so I could stop being sad. And I loved the ending, once Edward was back in the picture!
2) The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I rarely cry while reading books, but the Hunger Games definitely got me crying. *Spoilers* The scene where Rue died, and when Katniss risked her life to get Peeta the medicine he needed.
3) The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa
Ash and Meghan’s relationship was so intense in this book! I loved them together, and the love Ash showed for Meghan was so sweet. Then there was the ending … just very emotion-packed.
4) City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
Jace and Clary’s relationship is what made this book so emotional for me. They were SO PERFECT together, but there were so many obstacles that it made this book almost painful to read. (In a good way, if that makes sense).
5) Divergent by Veronica Roth
This book was just full of so much EXCITEMENT, that I couldn’t put it down!
6) Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
Such a sad and amazing book. I was entranced while reading it.
7) The Dead and the Gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer
This book had some really gritty, gruesome, realistic scenes of what the world could be like after an apocalyptic disaster. I’ll never forget the images of Madison Square Garden full of body bags, and the main character finding the rotting corpse of his sister in an elevator. This was another book that I had to finish in one day, or else I would have felt unsettled while trying to sleep at night.
8) Unwind by Neal Shusterman
One scene in particular — the unwinding — will always haunt me.
9) Blood Promise by Richelle Mead
I think that out of all the Vampire Academy books, Rose went through the most in this one. The scenes with her and Dimitri were heart breaking.
10) Gone by Michael Grant
The horrifying scene of the kids with their hands in concrete blocks, walking down from the school like malnourished zombies, will never leave my mind.
