The Broke and the Bookish
This weeks top ten is top ten books I had strong emotions over.
1. Forbidden by Tabatha Suzuma:
Very first book that popped into my head. I can not get over this book. It will always stick with me. After reading it, I couldn't stop crying for at least a full 15 minutes. Then I just wandered around my house aimlessly for another 30 minutes. I didn't know what to do with myself. It was intense.
2. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte:
WORST. BOOK. EVER. Well pretty close to worst book ever. The only reason I finished this stupid book was because I was hoping Heathcliff died in some horrible, gruesome manner. BUT NO, the stupid book couldn't even give me that. I judge Bella Swan for this book being her favorite.
3. Stolen by Lucy Christopher:
This book was tense. I couldn't believe my reactions to it. Especially the end. I ended up loving Ty's character and it was my reaction to him that made my feelings so strong for this book. You are not supposed to fall in love with the crazy boy who kidnaps you.
4. Paradise Lost by John Milton:
I can honestly say that every single time I read this poem, I'd fall asleep. It'd take about 5 pages and I'd be out like a light. I've never had that happen to me while reading. Ever. And like clockwork this book would make me pass out. I never did finish it.
5. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling:
All the HP books made me have strong feelings, but especially this one seeing as how it was the last. *sigh* I still haven't gotten over the fact that this is the last book.
6. The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simmons:
I bawled like a baby while reading the end of this book. Then I found out that there were two more books and I felt better. I became super attached to Tatiana and Alexander while reading this book. They are one of my favorite literary couples.
7. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer:
I don't think there is a series that can turn women into girly messes better than Twilight. I mean, really. How many crazy fan girl stories has everyone heard? I know I've had some crazy Twilight fan girl moments. A book filled with super gorgeous guys will do that to a girl.
8. The Art Of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein:
This book gave me a new hope; that when my pets die, they will come back as humans and I can meet them. I truly want this to happen and the idea of it fills me with joy. This book definitely gave me strong feelings.
9. Far From You by Lisa Schroeder:
This book was so breath takingly beautiful. I loved every moment of it. I cried, I laughed, I "awwed."
10. Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan:
This series cracks me up. The whole time I'm reading those books I'm laughing. I love the way Riordan explains certain things (like how the entrance to hell is obviously in LA. hahaha). I now look at greek gods and laugh as well. Changed my views on that whole subject.
