Q: Tell us about the most emotional scene you've ever read in a book--And how did you react?

A: I think that the earliest emotional scene I remember reading was from Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. I don't remember the exact scene that tore my heart to pieces all I remember is that being the first book to make me cry, and not a nice quiet cry, the ugly snot cry. I know I broke  when he crushed the mouse with his hand, but I also know that the entire book broke me. I also read a ton of books on WWII when I was in eighth grade that also broke my heart. I don't remember the names of all of them, but they were all true stories, so they made me fall to pieces.


So, what was the most emotional scene from a book that you can remember?

  1. I've actually never read Of Mice and Men. But I know those types of cries. There have been a couple of books to make me do that!

  5. I am so far behind in that there are so many classic books that I never got a chance to read. Judging from my shelves, I won't get to them anytime soon either. If I ever did get around to reading them, this one would probably top my list. Thanks for visiting my FF. New follower.

    1. It is hard to read all those classics, especially when there are so many awesome new books out there! We can't possibly keep up! The movie is good as well and follows pretty well to the book!

      Thanks for stopping by!

    1. It is a very sad book, it was assigned to me in Eighth grade, I haven't read it since. You could always watch the movie, it is close to the book!

      Thanks!

  14. Hi Danielle! thanks for hopping through and following :)
    here to return the favor! I still have a list of John Steinbeck on my TBR but I'm glad to hear the constant great opinions! The one war story that made me tear up was All Quiet on the Western Front! New follower
