Feature & Follow (13)

Feature & Follow is a weekly meme hosted over at Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.
This question this week is:
Q:  Tell us about the most emotional scene you've ever read in a book - and how did you react?

 Oh God, this calls for a Supernatural gif.  There are so many scenes I can think of . . . I happen to be a really emotional reader so I basically cry at anything in books. 

The first one I can think of is Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls.  I sobbed so hard reading that book.  I think I read it in sixth grade with my mom and we both had tears streaming down our faces at the end of that.  The most recent . . . Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare.  I sobbed throughout that entire book, but especially at the end.  It was a bittersweet sort of sobbing because I was satisfied (kind of) with the ending but I was so upset it was over.  Another time that pops into my head is when I was reading The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa.  I did not expect that to happen at all.  I was crying so hard, I'm pretty sure I started hyperventilating and let me tell you, that ain't pretty.  

What was the most emotional scene you've ever read in a book?


  1. LOVE that gif :D

    I haven't read Where the Red Fern Grows (it was a school requirement for the reading level lower than mine, because of course, I was advanced!). I haven't read Clockwork Princess, either (I'm waiting for a copy from the public library). I have a feeling that I might cry or chuck the book across the room! :D

    Thanks for visiting my blog! I've followed back via GFC.

    And I WAS reading Splintered - but now I have to start over, because I wasn't home all day, and when I had started it, I hadn't gotten that far. Hopefully I can restart and finish tomorrow! :D

  2. Thanks for the follow & FF visit. I am consciously avoiding Clockwork Princess for the very reasons you just said! I don't have time right now to be heartbroken (& I know I will be, my BFF has already read it and told me) and I don't want the series to end just yet. *Sigh* Freaking LOVE your blog layout!

  3. I haven't read those books but have def. heard of them!

    Old follower & wow what a nice blog you have! :)

  4. My sister and I are getting ready to watch Supernatural on Netflix. I'm ashamed I haven't watched it yet, lol.

    Gah, Where the Red Fern Grows! I can't remember what grade we had to read that book, but I felt like they were torturing us. I think we watched the movie, if there is one for it, or I might be confusing the movie with a different one.

    I haven't read TID yet, but everyone who has is talking about how emotional The Clockwork Princess made them. I can't wait to read those books! I bought the first three Iron Fey books and can't wait to read those, too. I have some review books I'm reading right now.

    New follower! My FF

    I LOVE DEAN! And Sam.
    Never read the book though.

  6. Thanks so much for becoming a follower of my blog! I too am a Dean fan! No one shows gutwrenching emotions like he does. I'm now following you back via GFC.
