Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Had VERY Strong Emotions About

Hey all. This is going to be a quickie. This weekend has been hell, it's Halloween, and I got to experience my very first panic attack last night so I got no sleep whatsoever. (Didn't have any fun, either.) For those who know me well, there are certain books that just piss me off. I cry, throw them at the wall, etc... So here they are... I apologize for no links or cover art, but you can look them up either at Amazon or Goodreads!

  1. The Luxe Series - I refused to finish this series, even though it was fantastic and I love the style of writing. I just knew ahead of time that what was going to happen wasn't what I wanted to happen, so i got angry, and hid the books under my bed, where they remain to this day.
  2. The Lord of the Rings - When I was much younger I read these books, and I think they were the first books that held such complex characters. I loved every minute of it, but cried in the end. I'm such a nerd, I know.
  3. Pride and Prejudice - This was such a happy, fluffy book. Austen's writing is incredibly thick, and sometimes hard to get through, but this is one of my favorite stories.
  4. Robert's Ridge - After reading this book I didn't know if I wanted to cry or be pissed.
  5. 1984 - My first, official read that studied politics and society, and what people have to fear. I loved how deep it was, how terrifying, etc... It left me thinking for a very long time, and is one of my favorite classics.
  6. The Kite Runner - I had no idea what to expect when I read this book, I sort of picked it up at the library on a whim. I think this is one of those books that will stay with me for a lifetime.
So, as promised, quick! But I still wanted to join in, even while being sick. So please, join in with your comments or ideas. I'd love to hear them, as always!


  1. I loved The Luxe, bought the next three, and then never finished reading them. I really need to do that.

  2. I have 1984 on my list too and forgot about how emotional The Kite Runner was, it definitely had me pissed and outrage a lot. Great list!

  3. I agree about The Luxe! I've only read the first two, and Rumors was just heartbreaking at the end. I can't wait to finish the series, but I'm now preparing myself for my heartbreak.

  4. Pride and Prejudice---so precious. and 1984 is on my TBR right now!

  5. I just recently bought The Kite Runner for 75 cents at my local Goodwill, and I have never read it before. When I shared it on my In My Mailbox post, a ton of people had things to say about it in my comments and on Twitter. So...I'm really excited to get to it one of these days. However, I don't LOVE getting overly emotional when I'm reading, so now since everyone told me how much they cried when they read it, I think I'm a little afraid of it. Weird, I know. But this is how I am!

  6. I had the same reaction with The Kite Runner...not one that you forget easily.
