Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s topic is Books I’d Gladly Throw Into the Ocean (submitted by Beauty & Her Books). Now I’ll happily DNF a book I don’t like so most of these are going to be books I liked but that gave me so many emotions I want to throw them away.
Fallen by Lauren Kate – I seriously hated this book.
A Dog’s Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron – I loved this book but literally cried my way through the entire thing.
Year One by Nora Roberts – Another one I loved but that left me with so many emotions.
The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan- The. Ending. Killed. Me.
Ogre Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine – I liked this book well enough for most of it but the ending completely ruined it for me.
Nights of Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks – This was one of the first books that ever broke my heart.
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls – This book killed me when I read it as a child. It was devastating.
Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger – I was one of those weird kids that actually enjoyed reading for school except for this one. Definitely one of the worst books I’ve ever read.
Burned by Ellen Hopkins – I loved this book until the last few pages ripped my heart out and stomped on it.
Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas – Something that happened toward the end of the book left me feeling like a zombie. I cry every time I read it.
What books would you want to throw into the ocean? (But not really because of course we would never disrespect books like that.)
