This is a meme hosted every Friday by Parajunkee, where book bloggers answer a question each week and check out how others answered it. It's a cool way for bloggers and viewers to connect and learn more about each other!
Question: Tell us about the most emotional scene you've ever read in a book-- and how did you react?
Answer: Well, I can think of two moments, both in Nicholas Sparks books. Yeah, pretty much cried my eyes out while I was reading these. Good thing it was late at night because I was sitting in the dim light (only my bedside lamp was on) bawling my eyes out at like 1 am. Yeah, typically day in the life of me :) The two books were...
The Last Song (when Jonah figures out his dad is dying)
Oh my gosh, when Jonah learned that his dad had cancer and was going to die, so he threw a tantrum and started breaking the stained glass window he was making with his dad, I completely lost it. This little boy was having to face the facts that he was going to grow up without a dad and the things he said were so heartbreaking. I was a blubbering mess.
A Walk to Remember (when Jamie walks down the aisle)
The moment when Jamie walks down the aisle at her wedding with Landon is so different in the book than how it happens in the movie. In the book, Jamie is so worn down from the Leukemia that she can barely even walk down the aisle, that's why it's the walk to remember. It was such a special, sad, touching moment and I was so sad when I was reading it. Landon and Jamie's love was so sweet and passionate that when she was having such a hard time walking down the aisle because she was so fragile just touched my heart.
Have any of you read a scene so emotional, you couldn't help but cry your eyes out? I'd love to hear what they were!
