It is a well-known fact, by now, that books = pain. If you were not aware, wellll now you know!! Of course there are some books that are full of FLUFF AND SUNSHINE which is good because they partially heal the hole in my heart after reading the particularly emotional ones (*cries*) but there are still a whole bunch I am currently half-avoiding like the plague?? And so I thought I might share those with you guys today!
Oh my gosh, these 5 books literally have a black and blue-ish colour scheme and IT’S SO OMINOUS it must be a signnnnn of all the heartbreak omg. It’s so aesthetic though I kind of really love it because often in my lists the covers don’t match at all and I cry. BUT THESE ONES DO. So yayyyy!!
Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare: I’ve probably said this so many times, mentioned this book so many times, but I will neverrrrr be ready for this one!! Until, like the third book is released but that’s in another TWO YEARS and I can’tttt. Apparently the cliffhanger in this one is brutal and AGH. Struggles.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber: I haven’t heard anything of heartbreak for this one?? Mostly I’m scared to read it because there’s been SO MUCH HYPE and I’ve kind of been putting it off for that reason I think? Because what if I don’t like it? I mean, I know it’s not a big deal if I don’t but I WANT to like it. But if I don’t?? Strugglesssss.
Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma: Okay, so this deals with a controversial topic? But apparently it’s really good but also very heartbreaking? Sooo I have double the reasons to fear!! Because it’s a story about incest and that’s not really my scene?? But there’s also been lots of hype from other bloggers I know saying it’s good SO I AM TORN.
Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab: Ahhh don’t get me wrong, I’m super excited for this and I probably will end up reading it sooner than LoS haha. I’m just worried because this is the last book of the Monsters of Verity duology and I am kind of really scared as to what will happen?? MY POOR CHILDREN. ❤
They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera: Firstly, it’s Adam Silvera! AKA Heartbreak galore??! Secondly, it’s titled, THEY BOTH DIE AT THE END. Could you get any more heartbreaking (and spoilery loll) than that?? I’m going to get attached to these characters only to have them ripped away from meeeeeee WHY.
Looooook now it’s an orange-y/pink/brown theme!! I love this but also SUPER SCARED. Yes.
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff: I’m not sure about the amount of PAIN found in this one (but knowing books probably there is) but guys!! HYPE HYPE HYPE was everywhere when this was being released omg. And I started it once but didn’t get into it?? So indeed I am fearful because I really do want to like ittttt. *cries*
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson: It’s Morgan Matson! How can you be scared of a Morgan Matson book?? Stop judging meeee I’ve heard this one is heartbreaking (shouldn’t be surprised at this point but here we are) and this made people CRY so guyssss must. prepare. for. heartbreak. I do want to read this though!!
I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios: Another book I’ve heard is super emotional or at least has made them cry!! WHYYY will books not allow my heart to rest in one piece?? I’ve done nothingggg to them. NOTHING. I think.
Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson: Okay, out of all of these ones, this one seems like the one that deals with the most… tough topics? I can’t do it justice, seeing how I haven’t read it but reading other reviews, makes me want to read this book asap but also run and hide because EMOTIONS. And heartbreak!! But it also sounds so incredible. So.
The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak: I knowwwww I still haven’t read this book?? Stahhp looking at me like that. 😛 I swear I will read it! I will!!
That was a surprisingly short list/post?? Either I am forgetting books/don’t know about other emotional books or I’m actually a fearless reader who is hardly affected by emotions? Shh I can dream. But TELL ME: which of these books have you read?? How much do I need to fear them??? Are they very heartbreaking/painful, not very much? Or which of these books do you still have on your TBR/have added to your TBR? OOH and what books have made you CRY??! Let us discuss!!
While admiring the aesthetics of these covers and crying over the fact that books can stomp on our hearts so easily.
I hope you guys have an AMAZING day!!
