Hi everyone! Lately I’ve been so overwhelmed with school that I just haven’t had much motivation to blog. I had been posting a little bit on IG but had to take a couple of days off because I kept getting in and out of IG jail and couldn’t like any photos, so I decided to take Tuesday and Wednesday off to try and let things settle out, so I could like photos without the fear of not being able to like for hours on end.
Anyway, I kind of put my blog on the back burner because it’s the one place in the book community where I post that I know would be fine if I don’t post consistently because that’s how amazing the blogging community is in compared to always having to do something on bookstagram to keep stats up and all that work.
Anyway, today I wanted to talk about some of the book scenes that made me cry.
** THERE WILL BE SPOILERS **.
I would say that I’m a fairly emotional person. A lot of books make me laugh at character antics or whatever, but not every book causes me to have an emotional response so strong that it makes me cry. Crying isn’t a response that occurs just when a character dies but can also occur when there’s this beautiful moment so full of life that you’re overwhelmed.
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
Is anyone really surprised that this book is on this list? The epilogue of this book really got to me. I mean I spent a good 10 minutes after I finished the book just boo-how crying like I actually lost my best friend. We finally made it to the end of the series with Will and Tessa finally being able to be together and seeing a glimpse of their lives together as adults with children and grandchildren just to see Will on his death bed as an old man. And, if that’s not sad enough Jem comes and plays the violin for him and my heart just broke into a thousand pieces. Yes, I am aware that everyone gets old and dies and book characters are no exception to that, but that’s the great thing about books because we can have loads of books following the same character group and let anyone die.
And, you know I’m really scared to read Chain of Gold because it just hurts me to know that Will is going to die. Maybe not in this series but ultimately he’s going to pass on.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas
When everyone thinks of ACOMAF, they think of chapter 55 because well if you know you know, but chapter 54 will Rhys telling Feyre about his time under the mountains and the things that he endured for his people for 50 years and even the things that happened to him before just put into perspective how much of himself he gave up just to protect his people. You know, he puts on and wears this mask of the cold, indifferent High Lord to everyone outside of Velaris and his inner circle, and after hearing his story, I was like here Rhys, my heart will always be yours.
While we’re talking about SJM books, I’ll just go ahead and mention the next book…
A Court of Wings and Ruin
If you’ve read this book, you might know what I’m going to say. That moment when Rhys’s heart stopped beating and died; I swear it that moment might have killed me a little bit more that when Will died. I just can’t even put into words that overwhelming amount of pain and sorrow I felt when I read that he had died, even for a short time. It just wrecked me. Even to this day, if I just flip to that page and read that one sentence I start to tear up a little.
Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout
So this is book 4 of the Lux Series, where in the beginning Katy is in the custody of scientist trying to figure out the powers of a hybrid (a human who has been around the Luxen’s powers) where she was forced to kill and was starting to lose hope of getting out. then, Daemon being the amazingly wonderful person he is, was able to get in. And, when he is finally able to get Katy’s room and see the physical toll that being in that place caused in addition to Katy thinking that she was dreaming of Daemon being then to wake up and realize that he’s actually there with her *queue the crying*.
City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare
Ok, backtracking to Cassie’s books. In that last battle scene where Sebastian/Johnathan was about to die and his eyes turned colors, and he said that there was no good in his soul from the very beginning just broke my heart that this person was created from evil and never had the ability to live without that influence.
City of Fallen Angles by Cassandra Clare
I think this is the book where the scene took place, but it was where Clary and Jace were in Iris where they spent the night at Luke’s sister’s house and Jace writes that letter to Clary about he loves her right before he sneaks away to try to save the world. That was just a tender moment when everything was at a lull in their world and we could just see the vulnerability in Jace when he wears sarcasm like a second skin.
The One by Kiera Cass
Remember when Mason was about to send America home then the castle was raided and attacked? There was just so many things happening in a short amount of time from them breaking up with America about to be sent off to Maxon almost dying… my heart couldn’t take it.
As She Fades by Abbi Glines
Y’all, the entire second half of this book had me crying. I can’t even tell you how many tissues I went through while reading it because I discovered that Vale is the one actually in the coma after the car wreck, and Slate is the one talking to her while she was unconscious and the entire first half was her dreaming about his stories.
Happy reading until next time,
