Hello my fellow internet users & Happy Friday! Today I am back with another Discussion Post, so feel free to read my thoughts & join in on the chat!
TEARS??? FEARS???? What does this MEAN?????
Well, today’s discussion post will be all about emotional & scary novels in YA. Recently I’ve been in the mood for a tear-jerking read, but also a “keep you up late at night” read. So I thought, “Hey, why not ask my fellow book lovers??“
I am aware of some known horror novels such as anything by Stephen King & I do know of some supposedly emotional reads such as Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. I am actually interested in a few novels by King, but I honestly haven’t gotten around to purchasing them. I do own Moyes’ novel, just haven’t picked it up yet.
However through my experiences I’ve noticed that I haven’t found ANYTHING that has made me tear bullets or shit bricks. I am not saying I want the novel to make me cry for two days straight or have me have nightmares for weeks, but I NEED SOME EMOTION, PEOPLE!!!
I guess what I am saying is that I want to experience a novel that brings out new feelings in me. Too many times have I read a novel, said it was great, but didn’t really have a legitimate connection with it. Therefore I am here today, asking for some horror, suspense, contemporary…honestly, any book recommendations that have made YOU or someone you know cry or hide or watch behind your back every 5 seconds. Any recs are appreciated, even the common/known ones.
Besides that little snippet, I also wanted to share a few of my own read novels that have made me tear. NOT CRY, because no book so far has really made me cry (I swear I am not emotionless, I am actually really sensitive, lol). But here are a few that have made my life miserable for a few good seconds or minutes or so…
- Looking for Alaska by John Green
- The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
- Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
- The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
- Falling into Place by Amy Zhang
This was literally me after reading those novels:
They were all so beautiful and I love each & every one of them — I have no shame.
With that being said, I don’t have a list for horror novels just because I don’t normally read that genre. But, I would SURE like to have one!!!
Now, I wanna hear your thoughts! Do you enjoy horror? Maybe contemporary? Have you read a novel that has made you sad? Or afraid? Chat with me down below in the comments! 🙂
Thanks for reading & I’ll see you next time…
