Top Ten Books that Broke my Heart

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish 

The topic of this week's top ten is books that broke my heart a little.  The following is a list of books in which I cried, some a little and some quite a bit.

1. The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa – I love the Iron Fey series with a passion, however the end of the third book make me cry so bad.  Thank goodness for The Iron Knight!

2. A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks – I don’t think I have ever read a Nicholas Sparks book without crying, I think he sits there finding a story that guarantees tears galore.  Anyway, this is the first book by Sparks that I read and I cried really badly.  The ending just broke my heart. 

3. At First Sight by Nicholas Sparks - Honestly, I must like crying because I keep reading his books!  

4. The Friday Night Knighting Club by Kate Jacobs – Good Lord!  I read this book after two friends recommended and it was great, but I cried so much that my husband came running thinking I was hurt!

5. New Moon by Stephenie Meyer – Needless to say I felt just like Bella!  I was so sad when Edward left, still this is my favorite book in the saga.

6. The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder – I absolutely loved this book, but the ending, even if expected, was still heartbreaking.

7. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor – This was my pick for best book of 2011.  Such a beautifully written book with a unique story, I hope Karou and Akiva get their happy ending (eventually of course).

8. Linger by Maggie Stiefvater – This book made me so sad!  When Grace started getting sick I was just so… well, sad.

9. Dust & Decay by Jonathan Maberry - Not only did I cried with this book, but I cried while driving since I was listening to it!

10. Harry Potter and the Deadly Hollows by J. K. Rowling – To be honest I cried the book before when Dumbledore died, but in this book there are so many good witches and wizards that died that I was probably crying on and off for a good while.

Well, that’s my list.  I can’t wait to read yours, please leave me a comment and a link to your post.


  1. I cried when Sirius died in book 5. I was devastated! :(

  2. Daughter of Smoke and Bone was SOOOOOOO good!!! I had that on my list too! Here is my Top Ten

  3. I haven't read a lot of these books, but I don't like to cry, so that's probably why :-)

    My list is here: http://its-raining-books.blogspot.com/2012/02/top-ten-tuesday-books-that-broke-my.html

  4. Yep HP and Probability of Miracles made my list too. I love the movie a Walk to Remember, I haven't read the book and probably won't, but still a damn good tear jerking movie.


  5. Deathly Hallows made my TTT list week as well. I have Friday Night Knitting waiting to read- didn't think it was going to be a sad read, though!! I keep reading great things about TPoM- will have to check it out.


  6. Thanks for stopping by. I cried like a baby from the forest scene on in Deathly Hallows. I also cried at Shell Cottage too. So heartbreaking.

  7. I've yet to get round to The Iron Queen, but now I'll be sure to keep a box of tissues close by! And I haven't read At First Sight, but as it's a Nicholas Sparks book I'm already accepting the fact that I'd cry whilst reading it!

    Thanks for stopping by :)

  8. Daughter of Smoke & Bone was one of my favorites of 2011, too. I should have seen the ending coming, but I totally didn't. And it made me so sad. :( I'm hoping to get to the Iron Fey series, soon, too.

  9. Oh, The Probability of Miracles! As soon as I am caught up my review books I really want to read that one. It seems so so good.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)


I love comments! Please leave me one and I will try to reply as soon as I can. Liza
