It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish!
This week’s topic: FREEBIE WEEK!
It’s a freebie week for Top Ten Tuesday meaning we get to choose whatever post we want. Not to be a Debbie Downer here, but I feel inspired to choose a topic that’s not exactly on the lighter side. I just finished The Book of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ockler and I need to talk about FEELINGS. Sooo…..
TOP TEN BOOKS THAT MADE ME BAWL (in a good way)
- The Book of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ockler: This was the first Sarah Ockler book I’ve read and now I MUST get my hands on more. I bawled like a baby at half of this book but in a totally good way. It was so touching and I felt so connected to it. Keep an eye out for our Selective Collective posts for this book tomorrow!!!
- Any Gayle Forman book: I actually read If I Stay on my computer at work and it was insanely hard not to tear up or burst into tears at my desk. I was so moved by Where She Went and fell in love with Just One Day. I’m also hosting a Gayle Forman read along if you’re interested in picking up her books for the first time or looking for an excuse to re-read all this beauty!
- The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay: This book was so gorgeous that it moved me to tears. I felt all the heartbreak and all the pain that Nastya felt and I absolutely loved it. I’m on the blog tour for the paperback release of The Sea of Tranquility this week so keep an eye out for that too! 🙂
- The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson: I devoured this book in one day. I still remember sitting in my arm chair, reading this book and just sobbing to myself as I read.
- Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein: I actually didn’t break down and flat out cry, but I teared up several times (for obvious reasons) in this book! I also had to hold back a little bit because I was reading half of it in a shop with my boyfriend and his friend working on cars. Not exactly a place for crying haha.
- Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell: Eleanor’s story was so heartbreaking! I truly felt for her and the ending of this book kind of broke my heart a little.
- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling: Two specific scenes (you know which). Every time… Every time.
- Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver: This actually wasn’t one of my favorite books for the first half, but I was totally drawn in the second half of the book and listening to the audio in my car, I totally sobbed on my way home from work one day.
- Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech: This definitely deserves a re-read soon! I haven’t read it since I was probably 12 or 13 or something, but I totally remember tearing up at the end.
- One Moment by Kristina McBride: Ahh, my very first book from Netgalley. I just have fond memories. But quite an interesting story, IMO and definitely one full of tears for me!
