Top 10 Books That Made Me Emote In A Variety Of Ways

1. Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead
OMG I cried so so hard!! First I was so angry with all the Lissa stuff going on. I could totally empathise with Rose and her wish of being able to chose things in her life. Then I was so so happy about Dimitri and Rose. I was actually crying of happiness!!  And then in the end. OMG! I couldn't belive it!! I just couldn't. I was in a state of shock I coudn't even cry. It hit me after some minutes that all of that was real. And then I started crying.  I just had the first three books and Spirit Bound. I needed to get Blood Promise, but in the whole Slovenia there were only two left. And that's to say - in the other part of the country. I was nervous and crying and anxious about the book so much! And then thank God my mum went to the bookstore and made the agreement, so they sent me the book from the other side of the country. They said the book will arrive in one or two days. I was dying. Honestly. The book arrived the next day thankfully.

2. Blood Promise by Richelle Mead
Like I said I was dying to read it. I got it in the bookstore and I started jumping and laughing and crying. Tha woman who was working there was just staring at me. I didn't give a shit about it. I was just so so happy to finally have it in my arms after 4 days of anxiety. I paid and went to my favourite bar. I switched off the phone and started reading. I think I've read it in one day and a half. One setting. No sleeping, no eating. Just good coffe. And lots of sugar ;) OMG if I've tought anxiety was big before getting the book, it was 10000 bigger while reading the book. I was actually shaking while reading it. Seriously. One of the best experiences EVER in my life so far.

3. New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
Well, this was woow. My phone was switched off ofcourse. I was reading and I couldn't belive it!! NO WAY! And the blank pages of November, December and so on. OMG I was shocked. Poor little Bella. And poor little ME!! When she first heard him, belive me, I tought it was really him! I said, I know he wouldn't given up on her. So you can imagine my dissapointment when I saw he wasn't there. And then when Alice came!! Oooo!! I was so happy! And then the race - that was hilarious! I was so nervous! He was alive!! We did it! We make it, to save Edward. I was crying. I was so so happy. 

4. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Well. This book for me was kind of a big dissapointment. Don't get me wrong, I love this serie a lot, but I was kind of hopping of a bigger end in the serie. Yeah, I tought all the book was a bit, hmm I don't know how to say it right, weird. All that filming and stuff that bothered me a lot. I mean, they were kind of in the middle of the war and I got the feeling that the show on the tv was the most important. I didn't like it. But the end?! I was crying so hard. And couldn't stop thinking about it for the whole night. And also the days after. 

5. City of Glass by Cassandra Clare 
OMG!! OMG!! This book was hilarious! Seriously. Amazing. Though I didn't get it was Jace was acting like a jerk, in the beginning, I loved the emotions Clary produced after that. And the scene at the manor house - hilarious!! I was crying of happiness! until Clary stopped it. What the hell?! I was so disappointed. And then when she finally figured it out that they're not brother and sister. Ohh I was so happy. And then my mood darkened. No no no!! Something bad is going to happen. No no Jace don't die!! I got this idea because everything was going so great and I knew something bad will change it. And when he died - believe me, I wanted to die too. I was crying and crying. Ohh my God! But the ending? One of the most amazing endings ever! 
You could have had anything else in the world, and you asked for me.” She smiled up at him. Filthy as he was, covered in blood and dirt, he was the most beautiful thing she’d ever seen. “But I don’t want anything else in the world.
HILARIOUS!!

6. The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa
This book was so heartbreaking. Through all the book I was so sad. I could so empathize with Meghan. OMG, she loved him so much. I loved him for screaming out loud!! But he couldn't. Rules are rules.
"I think our last kiss was meant to be quick and chaste, but after the first touch of his lips fire leaped up and roared through my belly. My fingers yanked him close, digging into his back, and his arms crushed me to him as if wanting to meld us together. I knotted my fingers in his hair and bit down on his bottom lip, making him groan. His lips parted, and my tongue swept in to dance with his. There was nothing sweet or gentle in our last kiss; it was filled with sorrow and desperation, of the bitter knowledge that we could've had something perfect, but it just wasn't meant to be."
And I was so angry with the system of the Summer and Winter court. God!! And then all the Puck thing going on as well. Well, I should say that I didn't like that much. I mean, I get it, poor Puck, but still, Ash is ASH! :P And the end was Ohhh I was crying. I was so so so so so so happy. One of the best endings EVER. And I am not exaggerating ;)

7. Unforgiven by Barbara J Hancock
This story is so so nice. There is this girl and she follows rules since she was little. Killing vampires. Until she met a vampire which was different. So so different. She knew she needs to kill him, but she just couldn't. And she falls in love with him. He is such a funny guy. Really. Everything is going ok and she falls totally in love with him. Until she hears him talking with someone and figures out, she did a mistake. God, I was so so angry I couldn't believe it!! Bastard! Well, not that kind of bastard after all, but I'll leave it to you to judge that ;)

8. Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick
What the hell?! In this book, I was so so angry. Seriously. WTF?! She told him that she loves him. I love him too, just for the record :P But what the hell was he thinking about it when he went with MARCY!?! Unforgivable. I couldn't believe my eyes. What was going on?! I mean it's Patch we are talking about. Ok, he is mysterious, dangerous and stuff like that, but this?! No way. And honestly, after reading Silence, I still don't get it.

9. Iron Crowned by Richelle Mead
Ohh, Eugenie. She is such an amazing woman - so strong and so powerful, and yet so confused about men. I am team Dorian btw ;) The most powerful impact for me was when she used the Iron Crown. Omg, that was pretty amazing. And all she did for saving her sister. I was actually so happy that their relationship got better in this book. But the ending was just awful. I couldn't believe it. No fucking way. How COULD he?! I wanted to kill him myself. Bastard.

10. The girl with the dragon tattoo by Stieg Larsson
This book was, huh, awful. Don't get me wrong, I loved the book!! But the story is scary. Poor Sally. I would be dead if I needed to endure what she had. And the investigation that Blomqvist is doing about the dissaperience of Hannah. Woow. Quite amazing. The story is so full of wonder and everything that you can't stop reading it. And such a strong emotions about everything. 

What about you? Did you put any of the books above on your list?

I felt all the same things you did while reading Shadowkiss, and WOW, that ending! This book made it on my TTT list of books that left me with my mouth hanging open. I just couldn't believe what had happened.

The Edward/Bella scenes in New Moon are my favorite of the series, but I never liked Jacob in the books, so that really affected how I liked this book overall.

I've been trying to decide which one of Mead's other series I should start once I finish Last Sacrifice. I was leaning towards Georgina Kincaid but my mom has been reading the Dark Swan series and really loves it. Have you read any of the Kincaid books? How do they compare with Dark Swan?

I didn't like Jacob as well :P He just wasn't my type :P

About Succubus and Dark Swan. Huh depends :P
I have read both :) And I loved both!
Maybe I prefer Succubus more. Yeah, I did. Georgina Kincaid serie is about Hell - imps, succubus, vampires, angels, demons. :) And ofcourse a love story ;)
Dark Swan serie is about gentry - Fairy World. Is also a great serie. The last book is coming out in January.
Meanwhile, the Succubus serie is whole out. So maybe you shoud read this one first ;) So you won't need to wait util the 4th book The Shadow Heir to come out ;)

Hi, I have read most of the books on your list and I share some of your same impressions. Now that I think about it, I stopped reading Crescendo after the first few charpters because I was so mad!
Is it worth it to keep reading the series?

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey Liza! :)
My native language isn't English (as you can see :P) so actually after few chapters I (like you) was just like: "Ok, What the hell? Seriously maybe I didn't understand well." I was hoping. Then I reread it.. I did understand right the first time. But I couldn't belive it. I was so mad as well. But I said No fucking way he is gonna stay with Marcy or I am going to kill him!! :P lol. Was something like that yeah. But I suggest you to keep reading! It gets better after a while ;) It was heartbreaking but in the end I liked it ;)
