Feature and Follow #7: Emotional Scenes

It's Friday and here is another Feature and Follow. You know how it works; AlisonCan Read and Parajunkee are the hosts and every week they have a new question for us to answer.  It’s a way to meet new blogs and bloggers and socialize. :) In the links above you can learn how you can join too and everything there is to  know. 
So, go grab the button and start meeting new people!!!

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Tell us about the most emotional scene you've ever read in a book - and how did you react?

It’s a very tricky question for me. The books I read don’t tend to have much emotional scenes. But I was surprised with The Hunger Games. Despite the action, this series was really emotional too. Frankly, it was the first time that I was affected so much by a book. It wasn’t only one scene, but all the parts that Katniss was talking about her family, how hard it was to survive, all the things she did to protect her sister. It was the first time I cried while reading a book. Yes, I can admit that. Suzanne Collins managed to make the reader connect with Katniss so much that I can’t believe there is anyone who didn’t feel his heart tightening, while he was reading that stuff.

How about you? What scene really touched your heart?


  1. Well I get a mix of emotions when I read a book. They don't necessarily make me cry, but they do pull forward an emotion of some kind!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  2. I haven't read Hunger Games so far, not sure if I want to! But I saw a lot of my friends get emotional about Hunger Games :)

    Thanks for stopping by earlier! I used to read every Nicholas Sparks book, but after about 10 books or so, I stopped because I dislike the tear-jerker moments that are sure to come up in his books!


  3. Hunger Games was an emotional read for me too. I remember being so angry with what happened to Rue!! Arrgh, why!!

    Thanks for stopping by my FF. Following you back :)

  4. It was hard not to get emotional while reading the trilogy. My daughter and I had to support each other through it all. Rue's death was so heartbreaking, and everything Katniss did in her memory just endeared Katniss to me even more. She showed heart and human compassion. The author did a superb job writing these books.

    Thanks for stopping by my FF. Old follower. :D

  5. Are you prepared for the season finale of The Walking Dead? I'm not!

    1. The finale season???? Really????
      No, I am not at all prepared!!!

  6. Great Answer!!! I was super emotional reading the hunger games too! I pretty much gave my husband a play by play of the book and what was happening at the moment!! soooo good ! ( Old follower )

  9. Oh yes, The Hunger Games was quite an emotional ride! I still remember feeling very sad, depressed and distorted while reading it, but I guess that's how dystopians leave you feeling anyway. Awesome answer!
