Books That Broke My Heart A Little

I'm kind of a Grinch so my little heart doesn't break that easily, so I was only able to come up with 8. To tell the truth that's a few more than I expected.
1. Dear JohnDear John by Nicholas Sparks

4. Cleopatra's DaughterCleopatra's Daughter by Michelle Moran







5. Charlie St. CloudCharlie St. Cloud by Ben Sherwood






Life's That Way8. Life's That Way by Jim Beaver

I feel a little weird about adding this one since it is a memoir, but it did break my heart and it's also the first official book that made me flat out cry.

  1. Nicholas Sparks gets me everytime. He's always killing someone off or putting people in heart-wrenching situations.

    I have Cleopatra's Daughter but I haven't read it yet. Thanks for the heads up that it's going to be a kleenex read.

    1. I always try to avoid reading Nicholas Sparks for that reason, but it's probably also the reason I keep going back.

      I hope you enjoy Cleopatra's Daughter, it's one of my favorites and it definitely has it's kleenex moments.

    1. Thanks, if you liked the movie you should definitely try the book, it has so much more details that the movie left out.

      here's my review for it

  3. Stopping by for the book blogger love-a-thon! =)

    I haven't read any of these books, but now I'm not sure I want to so I can avoid heartbreak! Although, I have read the first book in Libba Bray's series and in Anna Godbersen's.

    1. Thanks for dropping by.
      It's funny now that you mentioned Rumors and The Sweet Far Thing, I just noticed that I gave those two 5 stars, it hadn't really occurred to me that so many books that "broke my heart" got 5s. Although I'm always saying if a book can make me feel something I'll give it 5.

      If you liked the first of Libba Bray's trilogy you should definitely keep going, if not I don't think I'm highly recommend them. AS for Anna Godbersen's those I say keep going, they just get better.

  4. Oohhh how did I forget The Sweet Far Thing?! I loved that entire series and when the ending happened, the whole Kartik/tree thing...oh. My heart broke and I'm fairly certain I cried. Such a phenomenal series.

    Hopping through for the Love-A-Thon, great blog!

    1. I don't think I've ever officaly cried while reading a book but with The Sweet Far Thing and The Lucky One also, I actually had to stop reading and ask myself if I was going to cry I was so close to tears.

    1. Yeah you can also turn to him for that, but I have to admit the first book I read by him was A Walk To Remember and everyone said I would cry, I didn't and ended up feeling so weird about the lack of tears.
