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.

  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!

Top Ten Books I Recommend The Most

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish . This week's topic:  Top Ten Books I Recommend the Most 1.) The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons   2.) Outlander by Diana Gabaldon           If you read my blog at all, you know I love these two books so much!  I am not afraid to suggest them to anyone who I think might enjoy them. 3.) The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - I was definitely recommending this book left and right when the first movie came out. 4.) The Fault in Our Stars by John Green 5.) A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin           These are two books that I just recently started recommending but they are books that can appeal to anyone so they are easy picks when someone asks for a recommendation. 6.) Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead  - I get a little embarrassed when I recommend this book to people but seriously, just because it has vampires does not mean it is like Twilight. 7.) The Giver by Lois

Review and Giveaway: "Distant Signs" by Anne Richter

Synopsis: Distant Signs is an intimate portrait of two families spanning three generations amidst turbulent political change, behind and beyond the Berlin Wall. In 1960s East Germany, Margret, a professor’s daughter from the city, meets and marries Hans, from a small village in Thuringia. The couple struggle to contend with their different backgrounds, and the emotional scars they bear from childhood in the aftermath of war. As East German history gradually unravels, with collision of the personal and political, their two families’ hidden truths are quietly revealed. An exquisitely written novel with strongly etched characters that stay with you long after the book is finished and an authentic portrayal of family life behind the iron curtain based on personal experience of the author who is East German and was 16 years old at the fall of the Berlin Wall. Why do families repeat destructive patterns of behaviour across generations? Should the personal take precedence over

Review and Giveaway: "This Son of York" by Anne Easter Smith

Synopsis: Now is the winter of our discontent, Made glorious summer by This Son of York…” — William Shakespeare, Richard III Richard III was Anne’s muse for her first five books, but, finally, in This Son of York he becomes her protagonist. The story of this English king is one of history’s most compelling, made even more fascinating through the discovery in 2012 of his bones buried under a car park in Leicester. This new portrait of England’s most controversial king is meticulously researched and brings to vivid life the troubled, complex Richard of Gloucester, who ruled for two years over an England tired of war and civil strife. The loyal and dutiful youngest son of York, Richard lived most of his short life in the shadow of his brother, Edward IV, loyally supporting his sibling until the mantle of power was thrust unexpectedly on him. Some of his actions and motives were misunderstood by his enemies to have been a deliberate usurpation of the throne, but thr
