This week we have a new meme and here I am to post my babblings :D
Tell Me Something:
What is the saddest book you have ever read?
This is a very hard post to do and that’s why it took me so long to do it. I always goof around and make jokes. My reviews are always full of pics that don’t fail to put a smile in everybody’s face, but I just can’t make this one funny, cose the books I’m about to talk about are not funny. In GR I have a shelf called Books That Will Break Your Heart. I have exactly three books there and I have to say that they most certainly did break my heart.
The first one was I Kissed a Zombie, and I Liked It by Adam Selzer. This book is short and snarky, so I started to read expecting a fun and light read. That was exactly what I’ve got until page 160 (there were 170 pages). I was struck with tears and I spend a hour trying to see the plot and understand that the ending was fitting for the story. I got it, really, but my heart didn’t and that’s why this book is in this list. Is sad, but trough the tears I see why it had to end like that. I still love this book and I still recommend it, but I still say that is a sad one and should be read with caution. You’ll have fun moments and laugh with the characters, but life sneak up on you.
The second one is Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott. This book is about a girl that is kidnaped and is not a feel-good-about-your-self book. This book is wonderful in the most tragic sense of the word. I felt like crap and this is to say the least. This writer put me inside Alice’s head and my heart was broken in a million of little pieces. I felt sad, I felt angry, I felt desperate, I felt hope and I felt empty. This was a roller coaster, but I did know what I was getting in to. I knew what the book was about and I took a leap that I knew would end up with me scattered in the bottom of a cliff. I don’t regret it one bit, tough.
The third one is Things I Know About Love by Kate le Vann and is the one that tore out my heart and is the one I never will be able to walk out from. Let me explain. I had read one book that was really exhausting and was looking for a fun and light book to read (this is my curse and I’ll never learn, apparently) so I started to read this one. I fell for this books instantly and couldn’t stop reading, but then stuff started looking not so good and (this is hard for me to admit, but I need to get off my chest) When I was like 6 pages to finish the book, my world was taken away from me. I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t speak and I couldn’t stop crying. I had to read the last pages 3 times just to be sure I wasn’t making it up. I was angry and I just couldn’t believe it. My chin was trembling and my boyfriend, that was asleep cose it was like 2am, went to me to see what had happened. I was heartbroken and I couldn’t speak. He took me to bed and every time I closed my eyes I started to cry again. It was 5am when I finally doze off in his arms, but I spend the next day and a couple of more days after that like a zombie, lost and incapable of thinking.
It’s being a while since I’ve read these books, but I still get tears in my eyes remembering them.
Well, this was my post for the week. Sorry I couldn’t make this one funny guys, but these books broke my heart and I can’t make fun of something like that. Maybe in the future I’ll be able to, but not yet.
