As an avid reader there is never a shortage of books that are really going to get to you whether it’s in a good or bad way. However, that being said I was only able to choose eight* books for my list this week since I tried to really pick the books that left me in extreme emotion (hurt, love, anger, etc...). I went from the books that immediately jumped out at me though I’m sure that if I really went through all the books I’ve read I would think up more!
This week’s list is Books I had VERY strong emotions about, so here they are!
1. Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler
Kessler is such a raw author. Her books have each made me cry.2. After by Amy Efaw
What an emotional rollercoaster. Teenage pregnancy stories always get me but this one was in a class of its own.3. Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma
Oh the heartbreak, the sorrow. This is such a controversial novel and it’s so well done!4. Rage by Jackie Morse Kessler
Please refer to #1.5. Every Little Thing in the World by Nina De Gramont
So many emotions. This was a fantastically well done novel. Another one about teen pregnancy but from a rather different perspective and ending not how you would necessarily think it would.6. Stay by Deb Caletti
This is the type of girl I always want to slap. Thankfully, she came into her right mind on her own. I immediately (as soon as I bought a physical copy since I first read an e-galley) loaned this out to my cousins because I felt so strongly about it.7. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
Love. Just love.8. Wildefire by Karsten Knight
Yeah, that ending made me want to throw this book across the room, through the window, and into the neighbours back yard for their beagle to gnaw on.9. Random Goosebumps books by R.L. Stine
Ok, it was, like, grade three and there were a lot of these books that I had to stop reading after a few chapters because I was scared out of my mind. Now I can fall asleep watching horror movies. Oh how the times change!10. Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal by Eric Schlosser
I didn’t eat fast food of ANY kind for the better part of a year. Seriously, this book disgusted me to the point of no appetite. But it was such a fascinating read at the same time.
*Yeah, I thought of two more books!
