Top 5 Books that Made Me Cry

Last week I held an “election” for you guys to choose the topic for my next top 5 post. I believe the result is pretty obvious from the title so let’s just skip that announcement 😉

Before we move on to the list I just wanted to clarify that this isn’t a “currently” type of list. These books are ordered by how much they made me cry at the time I read them, be it 5 years ago or just last week.

Top 5 Books of 2015

And to wrap up this year nicely, here’s my top 5 favourite books I read in 2015!

  • NUMBER FIVE: SMART GIRL

25367257

This book turned out to be way more than I expected. It was a really important read for the time I was in….

  • NUMBER FOUR: THE ASSASSIN’S BLADE

18243700

The whole Throne of Glass Series is great but I loved loved reading about how Celaena Sardothien became the Celaena Sardothien we read about in Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight.

  • NUMBER THREE: MOCKINGJAY

Top 5 Books in My Dream Literary Collection

I was recently contacted by a Gryffindor at Invaluable and challenged to share with you guys my dream literary collection. (To fit my blog’s content I decided to make it a part of my Top 5 Series). So Invaluable is an auction website that works a bit like Mary Poppins’ bag: it has a lot of awesome stuff! They have everything from beautiful jewelry to – oh, who am I kidding? – books! Rare books, in fact! (First editions, signed editions, and so on). So I let my mind wander and pretend I’m super rich and here are the 5 books I’d like to own the most:

  • NUMBER FIVE: ONE DAY

236c7ed2-1

David Nicholls please sign my edition of One Day, pretty pleaseeee…

  • NUMBER FOUR: THE BOOK THIEF

8055685

A signed edition of The Book Thief, that would rock my shelves! (The one on the picture is dedicated to a Rebecca, I would be content with a photocopy of that page too *snif snif*)

  • NUMBER THREE: REBECCA

md17543191045

A signed edition of the classic Rebecca, that would mean the world to me.

  • NUMBER TWO: THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA

50cea3acd9127e4faf004303-_w-540_s-fit_

The first edition of The Chronicles of Narnia! Oh pleasee!

  • NUMBER ONE: HARRY POTTER

The first edition of the Harry Potter Saga, obviously!

Now, if you’d like a suggestion to start your search in Invaluable, I’m leaving here a link to signed copy of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby.

Top 5 Favourite Villains – Edition #1

For those of you who voted on my Ramble #16 Poll, first of all thank you and second of all here you have the winner post! I present you the very first edition of my top 5 favourite villains of all times!

  • NUMBER FIVE: SEBASTIAN MORGENSTERN

From the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare.

Sebastian would never have made it to this list had not my feeling towards him changed radically after I finished City of Heavenly FireTMI‘s last book. Only then did I start seeing him for the lost boy he truly was, the lost Jonathan, someone who could have been a sweet brother, son and friend. But due to having an ambicious father ended up having his life ruined from the day he was born.

  • NUMBER FOUR: B. B.

51MC7CVTUXL

From Blueeyed Boy by Joanne Harris.

B. B. is the type of character that stays with you, no matter what. I read this book a long time ago, I only remeber bits of the story but I will never be able to shake the feeling I get when I think about B. B…. It probably helped that I read this when I was younger and thought it would be a cute novel instead of the phsycological thriller it is. Regardless, congratulations for the excellent excellent character Joanne Harris!

  • NUMBER THREE: THE BASILISK

From the Harry Potter saga by J. K. Rowling.

I bet you didn’t see this one coming, did you? You were expecting Voldemort or Bellatrix, weren’t you? Well none of those two gave me the creeps everytime I had to leave the bathroom when I was little. But this big guy did! After Moaning Myrtle’s story I always closed my eyes when I had to open the bathroom door, and this lasted one whole year! Now googling the image I still got the chills looking into his eyes…

  • NUMBER TWO: REBECCA DE WINTER

f027f9bab56b576b9f7aab5c4543fe1f

From Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.

I read this book as a young girl because, as you can imagine, I was super curious to find out what the book with my name was about. Well, I really liked the book Rebecca but I really hated the character Rebecca, which left me quite disappointed at the time. Rebecca de Winter was one of the first unbelievably mean book characters I was introduced to. A classic villain!

  • NUMBER ONE: Amy Dunne

From Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.

Amy’s character scared the hell out of me. Seriously. For real!!! How can someone be this… this… I DON’T EVEN HAVE A WORD FOR IT! Just staring at her gives me the crreps… (Side note: If you haven’t read Gone Girl go do it now. Noooow! Unless you don’t like being scared… in that case stay away.)

Two things: firstly, this images are not mine (obviously) and if you click on them a new window will appear taking you to the website I took each of them from. Secondly, I feel like this list could be a lot better if I just stopped being lazy and started reading more Stephen King and Gillian Flynn like I’ve been intending to…
