This week's topic is:
The Saddest Book I've Ever Read:
I don't know if this book is the saddest I've EVER read but I do remember crying when I read a certain part of this book when I was young. Sobbing, actually, and I don't remember that ever happening again.
That book would be:
I don't know if I was an emotional pre-teen and that was why I sobbed, but it hit me hard!
If you've never read "Rebecca" and would like to, stop here!
For those of you that have already read "Rebecca" or don't plan on reading it, I'll tell you why I sobbed.
Rebecca is sent to live with her two spinster aunts. It was a rough transition to the new living arrangements for both the aunts and Rebecca. After somewhat settling into a routine, one of the aunts passes away!
Like I said above, maybe I was an emotional basket-case at the time or maybe it was the author's writing but the death of Rebecca's aunt really struck me in a tender spot. Therefore, I would consider it the saddest book I've ever read :(
I have to have an honorable mention this week.
"Marley" was also a tear jerker!
So, what is the saddest book YOU'VE ever read?
