This week (in case you couldn't figure it out from the post title) is books that broke my heart. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. There are books that broke my heart in the best possible way.
- Looking for Alaska by John Green- This books was so sad yet so good. It really had an impact on me.
- The Fault in Our Stars by John Green- On the same vein, another fabulous yet heart-breakingly beautiful novel by John Green.
- Sweethearts by Sara Zarr-I have no idea why this book affected my the way it did. Nothing particularly sad happens in this book, yet, once I finished, I just felt sad and depressed. And I didn't get over it quickly, either.
- Before I Die by Jenny Downham- This broke my heart in the worst way possible. Yes, I should have been expecting that. Yet I read it when I was fairly young and just getting into reading. I think I bit off a little more than I could chew with this one.
- Cracked Up to Be by Courtney Summers- There was so much truth in this one. This is the book that made me fall in love with Courtney Summers' writing. I haven't like one of her books quite as much as this one.
- Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta- One of my favorite books. So heart-breaking yet so good!
- The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak- You can tell just from the subject-matter how heartbreaking this book is going to be. Yet it was so beautiful and so truthful.
- Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins-(Spoiler alert!) Out of all the books in this series, definitely the most depressing. I still haven't quite recovered from Finnick dying. Prim, eh. But Finnick, hell, no.
- Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver- This one was really good, yet very sad.
- Harmonic Feedback by Tara Kelly- Another so good yet so sad one.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
