Top Ten Tuesday {11}

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week there's a category and everyone participating lists their "Top Ten" in that category.

This week's topic is: February 14: Top Ten Books That Broke Your Heart A Little (this year we're going ANTI-Valentine's Day :P )

1. The Death Cure (Maze Runner #3) by James Dashner
Thanks a lot for killing my favorite character, Dashner. You totally broke my heart.

2. Shiver/Linger by Maggie Stiefvater
Some seriously heart-wrenching stuff went down in these pages. I was bawling and snotting all over the place from the unfairness of it.

3. A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young
It hurts even imagining myself in Charlotte's situation. I can't say too much for fear of giving it away, though.

4. The Gone series by Michael Grant
Someone basically always dies and I usually like them. It's quite sad (but I still love the series).

5. The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
I bawled like a baby during every single one, but especially the first. I could almost see it coming, but 

6. Divergent by Veronica Roth
So much dying! Which lead to lots of crying...

7. Delirium by Lauren Oliver
That ending was seriously cruel. You better know there was crying and heartbreak.

8. Trapped by Michael Northrop 
This was one serious intense read. It was such a realistic situation, I could totally myself in such a situation, and it was not pretty.

9. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins 
Yes, there was death and sadness in the other two, but this one takes the cake And I'm still not sure how I feel about the ending and who she ended up with.

10. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling 
Yeah, if you've read it, you know precisely what I'm talking about. If you don't, well, you should.


  1. I'm just starting "The Hunger Games" and I've seen "Mockingjay" on nearly all these top tens -- so I'm a little afraid...

    My TTT is here

  2. Awesome choices! Or, horribly sad choices to be more accurate! I'd forgotten about how heartbreaking Divergent was!

    ~Nikki (Imaginative Adventure)

  3. oh MAN I forgot above The Wolves of Mercy Falls... good one! and I was sad/mad about the end of Delirium- how unfair! Good list!

  4. Oh, so many good choices that I forgot to add to my own list! Forest of Hands and Teeth and the Gone series are some of my all time favorite books! I keep meaning to read Trapped. I will have to check it out. Here is my list of heartbreaks http://wp.me/pzUn5-Pg

  5. OH! A need so beautiful was so heart breaking indeed!! And Mockingjay and Divergent too! Great list! ;)

  6. I am totally with on you Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I bawled like a baby the first time I ever read this one. And every time I reread it, my heart always breaks a little more. *sigh*

  7. I'm still so wrenched over Harry Potter, I teared up when I found Tonks and Lupin's wands at the Harry Potter exhibit at the Discovery Center.

    I was really disappointed in The Death Cure, it just didn't grip me as much as the first two. I'm hoping to finish Shiver today, but I'm far enough to get an idea about why you chose it!


I adore all the comments you write. They totally make my day :]
