Top Ten Books That Put Me In A Glass Case Of Emotion
1. The Knife Of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
Girl, I read The Knife Of Never Letting Go in public at a hair appointment. BAD IDEA. But at least I could lie and say my tears were from a painful eyebrow wax. I can’t even look at the book cover without getting sad. Even just thinking about the title makes my chest clench a little bit.
2. The Name Of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
My emotional reaction to Kvothe was a lot more positive. Like, I pretty much ran a victory lap with The Name Of The Wind both times I read it because it’s a legit fistpumper and also I wanted to punch it, mainly because of Ambrose. What a dick. Seriously, still thinking about it, I want to punch Ambrose in his smarmy face.
3. Bet Me by Jennifer Cruise
YOU GUYS! Cal Morrissey. The end. Cal fricken’ Morrissey, it’s not illegal to find him attractive either and if ya don’t get heart palpitations during a certain Elvis scene check your goddamn pulse because you might be dead.
4. Harry Potter by JK Rowling ALL OF THEM
Holy hell. How do you live without having felt the emotional roller coaster that is THE BOY WHO LIVED MUTHAFUCKAAAA. lolol. Sorry, I like to curse a little now and then. But for serious, this series made me laugh hard, it made me cry, it made my blood pressure rise really, really high Dolores Umbridge I’m looking at you.
5. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
This book, I swear. Crocodile tears, y’all. It was THAT GOOD.
6. The Girl Of Fire And Thorns by Rae Carson
OMG OMG, if I had one emotion to use on this book it would be passion and love. Because I loved Girl Of Fire And Thorns with the fires of a thousand suns and pushed it on people I knew in real life. And fist pumped. And then hopped on the g-chat and twitters to express MY FEELINGS. YOU GUYS! Capslocks were had all around.
7. The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak
So, I just re-read this book via audiobook. Oh you guys, it hurts much more the second time around. I literally sobbed over Hans Hubermann. I love your face dude, love it hard. And it makes me just so melancholy especially because I could pick up on the foreshadowing and sigh, just knowing how it all plays out. And god. I just. This book it’s worth the emotions. Trust.
8. Tempest by Julie Cross
I haven’t reviewed this yet because I suck, but you guys when I finished it, I took to twitter and to g-chat. AND I mailed it to one of my favorite people ever, Allison at The Allure Of Books because I NEEDED to talk about it to someone I trust. Like, there’s this scene with Jackson and a certain child character and you guys the tears came like crazy. Sigh.
9. Plain Kate by Erin Bow
So, most of the time I consider cats to be useless animals compared to dogs, because really. BUT YOU GUYS TAGGLE WAS LEGIT. Seriously, Taggle did not suck for a cat and omg Kate, I feel you because she has the worst life, or at least the short end of the stick and I totally cried for her.
10. Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly
Friends, I will forever be a Jennifer Donnelly fan girl because she wins on all of the factors in a book that matter to me. Andi’s depression and emotions just felt SO real in this book. And I was sad for her family situation. I fell for Virgil. I just felt so drained but hopeful after reading this and just writing this Top Ten Tuesday makes me want to re-read the book, haha.
