Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and Bookish.
This weeks topic: Top ten books that broke my heart just a little bit.
Broke my heart because they were that kind of book
Ballads of Suburbia by Stephanie Keuhnert
Coming of Age in Mississippi by Anne Moody
To Kill a Mockingbird
Broke my heart because of the ending
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Broke my heart because some people just shouldn’t die…
3rd Degree by James Patterson
This World We Live In by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling*
Broke my heart because I had such high expectations
Sweet Valley Confidential by Francine Pascal**
Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella
* I know that it makes sense that people were going to die in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but after reading the previous 6 books, more than once, I felt like family members were dying.
** I loved Sweet Valley High. I’ve always wanted to see what happens when they grow up (same with the Babysitter’s Club). I can’t tell you not to read it because if you’re like me, and you loved Sweet Valley High, you will want to read it regardless of ratings or reviews. I just ask that you lower your expectations. Lower them a lot.
