This week’s topic:
Top Ten Books I Had VERY Strong Emotions About
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
If this wasn’t emotional, I don’t know what is. One of the few books that brought actual tears to my eyes.
Cryer’s Cross by Lisa McMann
Scary. So scary I heard scratching on my the wooden desk across my bed. Even worse, I read the scariest part at night.
The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau
For some reason, this one just struck me as beautiful. The whole story, the plot, the poor-state of the characters, I loved it.
Blood Red Road by Moira Young
This one was filled with tears. Death, pain, sorrow. And of course love. This was one of my faves because of the flurry of emotions.
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Tahereh’s debut picked up my emotions and threw them all over the place. When they say electrifying, they mean it.
Review coming soon.
Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly
The death of the MC’s brother and her guilt that it was her fault were very touching. It was sad, and it was hopeful. A tears-and-smiles type of book.
The Smile by Donna Jo Napoli
Another tears-and-smiles type of book. This was sad, even the ending was sad, yet beautiful. The fictitious tale behind the Mona Lisa – one of my all-time favorites.
The Dead and the Gone
Quite a few deaths in this one that just made me squeeze my eyes and want to hurl the book away from me. If you haven’t read the series, you should.
The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
This was one of the first YA books I read, and never reviewed. I loved it. It kept me up with a flashlight, and blurred my eyesight with tears.
The Hunger GamesAnyone out there want to disagree with me? Sorrow, suspense, this one just threw my mind and heart into overdrive.
