Top Ten Tuesday--Books that broke my heart a little

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
This weeks TTT is a little anti-Valentines. The topic is top ten books that broke your heart a little.

As usual, these are in no order. Just whatever popped into my head first.

1. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green:
To say this book broke my heart a little is a massive understatement. This book broke my heart so much that I still cry a little every time I talk about this book. Thoughthisisthebestbookever!

2. Allegiance by Cayla Kluver:
When I finished reading this book, I messaged Cayla on facebook and told her her book broke my heart, but I loved it anyways. She said she is sorry for breaking my heart. She is forgiven.

3. Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma:
Lockie, what are you doing with that sheet...Lockie???? Wha....nooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*sorry for that weird spoilery comment, but that was exactly that went through my head reading that part of the book. For those who have read this book, you get this. For those that haven't read the book, get on it.*

4. Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare:
This book breaks my heart because no matter if you are Team Will (go team will!) or Team Jem, it's a lose lose situation. Being team will or team jem was very hard for me to pick because they are both fantastic guys and no matter who Tessa ends up with, it's gonna suck.

5. The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein:
This book broke my heart but in such a good way. This book is brilliant. I mean, how many books are out there that are told from the point of the family dog??? And how the dog loved his owner so much that all he wants is when he dies, he wants to be reincarnated into a man so he can one day meet his owner and shake his hand. Oh my, that gets me all teary eyed just typing that.

6. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling:

7. Unwind by Neal Shusterman:
This book breaks my heart just to think about how anyone could ever think it is okay to "unwind" a child. How could you possibly give up your child like that? How could you be the doctors who take a kid apart piece by piece like that while the child is still alive and healthy? Gah!!!!!!!

8. Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls:
If this book did not make you cry or break your heart a little, I suggest you meet up with the Tin Man and go see the Oz because you my friend, are heartless.

9. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins:
I'm assuming by now that everyone has read this book. If not, don't read this section.

It breaks my heart just because Katniss never fully recovers from everything. Even in the epilogue she is just a shell of a person. Even being married and having kids doesn't seem to help her much.

10. Black Magic Sanction by Kim Harrison:
It's been a while since one of Kim's books was on a TTT of mine. She used to be on it every week. Thought she needed to come back.

BMS was particularly sad (even more sad than FAFDM) because of Maddie and Jenks. Poor poor Jenks. How do you get over the love of your life dying? It breaks my heart.


  1. You're so right about Clockwork Prince, but, being a Jem shipper, I wasn't all that heartbroken. I'd have been much sadder being a Will shipper. Still, it's not a perfect situation either way. That's the beauty of it, right? It's genius.

    You're also so right about Mockingjay and Where the Red Fern Grows. Read the latter when I was 12 and cried into my little beat-up paperback. So sad....

  2. I love this list! I'm so in agreement over The Fault in Our Stars. I'm an emotional mess over it.

    And it pleases me to see Unwind here. It's such a difficult book to swallow and that unwinding

  3. I'm spotting a lot of Harry Potter and Mockingjay on these lists. Great choices. :)

  4. Obviously, JK Rowling, Cassie Clare and Suzanne Collins is on everyones list! Great list!

    Drop by my Top 10?

  5. I really need to read The Fault In Our Stars and Clockwork Prince!
    Great picks.(:

  6. I think everybody who's read Tabitha Suzuma's "Forbidden" had their heart broken at the end. It's practically a requirement for reading that book!

  7. I started to read Forbidden but I dont know what happened I got distracted and never went back to it. I hear great things from it though. Here's my Top Ten
    Happy Reading!

  8. im starting the fault in our stars tomorrow! ive heard its amazing though, if devastating!

  9. Yes Locke, WHYYYYYY!!!!

    Great list!!

  10. Harry Potter made me cry too, so sad with all the character deaths.

  11. Harry Potter was an obvious choice for me as well. I haven't read the Infernal Devices series, but I must soon. Unwind sounds gut-wrenching and awesome...I have to check it out!

    Jennifer @ Feminist Fairytale Reviews

  12. Yeah, Clockwork Prince broke my heart. And when Finnick died I couldn't believe it. Still can't sometimes.

  13. Of the books I've read on this list - Clockwork Prince, HP, Mockinjay, and Unwind - I totally agree!


I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
