Top Ten Books That Broke My Heart A Lot

Today's topic at the Broke and the Bookish is Top Ten Books That Broke My Heart A Little Lot. The change is mine. I dare anyone to read Where the Red Fern Grows and NOT cry. The final three books are Holocaust memoirs, I went through a stage of reading those as a kid, I would highly recommend all three of these to anyone interested.

1. Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls

2. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

3. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

4. The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell

5. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

6. My Antonia by Willa Cather

7. The Awakening by Kate Chopin

8. Night by Elie Wiesel

9. The Diary of Anne Frank by Anne Frank

10. I Have Lived A Thousand Years by Livia Bitton-Jackson

The Sparrow all the way. I can't believe I've read that book like 3 times. I know what's going to happen at the end, I know it's (I'm not going to say anything that might give anything away), and I know i'm going to be crying.

Ever read any Valente? A lot of her stuff makes me cry too. But not because my heart is breaking, more because my heart is bursting.
