Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Cambria Herbert! All you have to do is answer the question of the week. It's my first time and I'm thrilled to be participating!
Tell Me Something.
What is the saddest book you have ever read?
I'm sure there are others but I can't recall them all. Either way there are very few books that touch me enough to make me feel sad and sob my heart out. It's a rare and amazing thing to find a book that affects me so much!
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. The end. A little before the end. The death of a certain character had a profound impact on me. It was the saddest part of the series. Not just the character death. It was just after the character died when Harry was left with all these memories and questions he wished he could've asked that character that I started sobbing buckets.
A Walk to Remember was my first Nicholas Sparks book and I did not know a thing about the way Sparks' novels usually ended. I was fifteen and devastated because I liked the sweet relationship between the two main characters. The movie was even sadder to watch, especially with the Switchfoot songs in the soundtrack.
One Day by David Nicholls was such a sad yet beautiful book! I cried SO MUCH towards the end. Even in the middle, the characters were put through so much. But the end... woah. I was taken aback by the twist. It was so beautifully written and so so sad. A book automatically becomes amazing when towards the end, you feel nostalgic on behalf of the characters.
