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!




  1. Haven't read these but def. have heard of many of them :)

  2. Some of those are on my TBR. I have a feeling I'm going to be seeing The Fault is in our Stars all over the FF today! I really must read that book. New follower. you can find me at:

  3. Definitely The Book Thief and The Fault in our Stars! I absolutely loved both of those books, even though they made me cry like a baby. Delirium and Requiem are on my TBR list. I didn't realize they were emotional books, but I've seen them on other lists as well. Sort of makes me want to read them more to see why they make people emotional!

  4. Hopping through. I didn't think of The Book Thief. Very emotional. And of course the poor doggies in Where the Red Fern Grows.

  5. Yep, TFIOS was my pick too. SO heart-wrenching. I'm surprised I haven't seen more mentions of The Book Thief - I haven't read it but I've heard it's a very emotional read! One of the reasons I want to read it, actually, lol.

    My F&F

  6. Gah I seriously love Wintergirls. I think that book should be mandatory reading in high schools, especially for girls. TFiOS is amazingly emotional, too, and The Book Thief. Haven't read the others, though.

  7. The book thief <3 I agree, it is one of my answers for this week. I can't wait to read The fault in our stars.


  8. New follower, FF.
    I read your review policy because I have a new book coming out next month, and I saw you were closed to reviewing Indie books. What about blog tours? Do you ever interview authors or host guest posts?
