Top Ten Books That Broke My Heart A Little

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic:  Top Ten Books that Broke My Heart a Little

1.) My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult-I have ranted about this book many times so all I am going to say is that this book broke my heart A LOT.  A LOT meaning I sat sobbing on my couch after finishing it.
2.) In the Woods by Tana French-I so wanted this book to have a happy ending.  I loved Rob as a character and I wanted things to end up better for him then they did.
3.) Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon-Jamie and Claire saying goodbye for what I thought was the last time equals extreme heartbreak.
4.) Lover Eternal by J.R. Ward-This book broke my heart but in a good way.  The kindness shown to Mary by the Scribe Virgin was just WOW.
5.) The Summer Garden by Paullina Simons-As much as I loved this trilogy, there was a point in this book where Tatiana and Alexander had both done dumb things and I just wanted to yell WHY?  How could you do that?
6.) We Wish to Inform You that Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with Our Families by Philip Gourevitch-Rwandan genocide, enough said.
7.) Push by Sapphire-Another book that needs no explanation as to why it broke my heart.
8.) We the Living by Ayn Rand-I love this book and I know it ended the way it needed to but I would have loved for it to have ended differently for Kira.
9.) P.S I Love You by Cecilia Ahern-Super sad book and movie.

That's all I have.  What books broke your heart a little?


  1. Thanks for the heads up on these :-) I didn't get teared-up (that I remember) over Gabaldon's book... I do love her stories!!

  2. Wow! I need to read a tone of these. I've read a few books about the Rwandad genocide and would be interested in reading that one by Gourevitch.

    Great list!

  3. Great choices--especially PUSH. That one killed me!

  4. I'm hoping one day I will get to read JR Ward's books. A few friends have been reading those books, but I just don't have the reading time to start a huge series.


  5. Aah, Lover Eternal!<3 I agree, I did not expect the Scribe Virgin to do what she did, but boy am I happy she did!
