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.
