Q: Tell us about the most emotional scene you’ve ever read in a book – and how did you react?
The thing about me is that I get emotionally invested in a lot of books if I really love them, so there are several with scenes that have set me off.
The Fault in Our Stars -- a few scenes from this one, but probably the “funeral” was the most memorable. No details or extra scenes on why…I don’t like giving out spoilers to those who haven’t read.
One of my first ever emotional reads to experience, and I remember it vividly, was Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. I’d had a pretty high reading level at the time, but hadn’t experienced anything on an emotional level to click with me until reading that book. Then again, when it comes to animals…I’m such a softie. I also fell to pieces over Where The Red Fern Grows shortly after reading that one.
Some others that I don’t want to get into details due to spoilers--just read them if you haven’t!
Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson (quite a personal read for me really)
Delirium/Requiem by Lauren Oliver
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Have a wonderful bookish weekend!
