Top Ten Books I Had a Strong Emotion About

I saw this meme last week on Rex Robot Reviews and decided that I wanted to make my own list. Here goes!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

Top Ten Books I Had a Strong Emotion About

1. The Diary of a Young Girl
I've read this book three different times for school, and each time, it really gets to me. Over the course of her diary Anne starts to feel like a friend. The voice that comes from her writing is timeless and full of truth.

This book is not for the faint of heart. I really admired Ree's determination and strength in the face of dysfunction, danger, and hardship. Her struggle has had a lasting effect on me.

This book has changed the way that I think about hitchhikers, the homeless, and nature. I now better understand how someone can go from having everything to struggling to survive.

4. Crank
At first I avoided this book and didn't get its appeal. However, once I gave it a try, I was impressed at how eloquent it is. It helped me understand how an average teen can fall into the dangerous cycle of addiction.

I guess maybe I should be ashamed that every time I read the ending of this it makes me cry? I had a classmate die at the end of my senior year and every time I read this book it reminds me of the day I found out.

This one makes me cry, too, but for different reasons. In the end, I was so glad that Katniss and Peeta were able to find happiness and have a semi-normal life. I was really worried that both of them were going to die. So for this one, it's more tears of happiness for the characters.

A classic tear-jerker. Better to have loved and lost than never loved at all. It's an older book, but old enough to be retro, cool now.

One of the few times I have wanted to throw a book across the room. I wanted to shake the main character and tell her that she's in love with the wrong guy!

I think anyone who has ever lost a pet is moved by this one.

I always have a hard time finishing this one. I know that the main character is a unicorn, but I always want there to a be way for Amalthea and Lir to be together and live happily-ever-after. I haven't read the sequel...*fingers still crossed*.
