Top Ten Tuesday: Sniffle Sniffle

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

This is a freebie week so I chose the topic of

Top Ten Books That Broke My Heart a Little (or a lot):
1. Every Day (David Levithan)- I just finished this book days ago. Wow. Amazing book. I can't even put into words how this book made me feel. Did it break my heart a little? Oh yeah. But I was totally okay with it.
Every Day
2. Before I Die (Jenny Downham)- I legit sobbed while reading this book. I totally busted out the blubbering, snot-dripping ugly cry.  This book didn't just break my heart a little. It ripped it to shreds. 
Before I Die
3. Harry Potter 5-7 (J.K. Rowling)- It wasn't until the 5th book in this series when I realized J.K. wasn't holding anything back and was very okay with breaking my heart into a million little pieces.SO MANY DEATHS. AHHH.  I don't want to say which deaths especially squished my heart in a vise in case there are still people who haven't read it. (IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THIS SERIES DO IT NOW!!).  I shed a few tears (or a hundred) over this series. Both human and non-human.  YOU KNOW who I'm talking about.  Sniff Sniff.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter, #5)Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Harry Potter, #6)Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7)
4. The Book Thief (Markus Zusak)- This book is powerful. It's haunting and incredible and amazing. And yes, it broke my heart.
The Book Thief
5. EVERY Nicholas Sparks book I've EVER read. I mean seriously. I think this guy needs some anti-depressants or therapy or something. WHY!?!??!?!
A Walk to RememberThe NotebookMessage in a Bottle

6. Sisterhood Everlasting (Anne Brashares) (Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants #5)- Oh. My. Gosh. This book. This book broke my heart a thousand times over. But it was soooo freaking good. An amazing conclusion to a great series.
Sisterhood Everlasting (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, #5)

7. Black Dagger Brotherhood Series (J.R. Ward)- so i freaking LOVE this series, and I love these brothers. Each book has broken my heart in some little way. Each of these brothers is damaged and broken in some way and my heart breaks with them. Especially when it comes to Zsadist. He makes me feel all sorts of feelings.
Lover Awakened (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #3)

8. Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Laini Taylor)- I mean. I can't even. I just. This book.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, #1)
9. The Hunger Games (Suzanne Collins)- YOU KNOW which part I'm talking about!! sniffle.sniffle.
 The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)
The next book(s) broke my heart a little for very different reasons then the previously mentioned. I really wanted to love them, I did.... but sadly...my heart just couldn't take it.
Books that broke my heart a little due to the disappointment they caused:
1. The Goddess Test (Aimee Carter)- Oh man. You can read my review here.Warning: it's not positive.
The Goddess Test (Goddess Test, #1)
2. Abandon (Meg Cabot)- Sadface.  Strike 2 against Greek mythology re-tellings.
Abandon (Abandon Trilogy, #1)
3. Wildefire (Karsten Knight)- This book set me up to love it and then kicked me in the ventricle.
You can read my review HERE if you'd like.
Wildefire (Wildefire, #1)
That's it for me! Leave me comment with your link so I can check out what YOU chose for your freebie list :)


  1. What a great idea for a top ten. For your first list, I couldn't agree more for the ones I've actually read - Harry, Hunger Games, Before I Die, & Nicholas Sparks - :( :(

  2. I remember crying buckets when I read "The Book Thief". The other ones that left me a blubbering mess was "If I Stay" and "Where She Went". I must have used a whole box of tissues with those!

  3. Awww what a great idea for a list! And great choices too, I totally cried a ton during the HP series but especially books 5-7 like you said ♥ And yes to both The Hunger Games & DoS&B! Thanks for sharing :) Old follower, here's my TTT

  4. Oh no! I'm reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone right now!! The Knife of Never Letting Go really broke my heart most recently.

  5. Daughter of Smoke & Bone cried and cried. Can't wait to read Every Day.

  6. I think I've read Before I Die... but I don't remember much about it =/ And I plan on reading Every Day and Daughter of Smoke and Bone =)
    Thanks for commenting!

  7. Really great list! The ones on here I haven't read yet, I will definitely be checking out. I like having a good cry over a book. Have you read Tuesdays with Morrie? I have never cried so hard from a book in my life! Every Day is definitely one I can't wait to get to. Thanks for visiting!

  8. This list is great. First of all, YES on the Black Dagger Brotherhood books. I'm almost finished with Tohrment's book right now and you're right, there is something sniffle-y in every book. But they're so GOOD. Also, I just got Every Day in the mail today and I love David Levithan SO MUCH I'm almost afraid to read it because of the love I know I'll most likely have for that book. Everyone has had great things to say about it. Also completely agree with Daughter of Smoke and Bone. LOVE it. So much.

  9. The Book Thief! Hunger Games! Abandon! YAY! Loved your list :)

  10. Every Day is amazing! I finally wrote my review of it today (although I read it weeks ago) because I just had to recover from all the emotions it made me feel! haha I cried a ton during the HP books and The Book Thief, especially towards the end. Sisterhood Everlasting had me all choked up.

    Such a great list!
