Welcome back to another edition of Moving Books(es)!
While I am in the midst of moving boxes from one state to another and getting settled in my new home, I have a handful of fabulous fellow bloggers stopping by to share their moving books(es) ... books that they feel have moved them in one way or another. Today, I am excited to welcome one of my fave bloggers, Suey of It's All About Books! Read on to get a great list of books to add to your TBR pile!
Books That Moved Me
Somehow I tend to think of “moving” books as sad books. But really, they are simply books that made me feel, which is a lot of books! Here’s a few that came to mind instantly.
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls: I always forget about this book, but it really should be at the top of all the lists!
The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck: I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this book’s ending KILLS me!
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini: The emotions this book brought up for me will never be forgotten.
The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski: I couldn’t put this book down! It’s an intensely emotional one.
A Single Shard by Linda Sue Park: I really don’t remember much about the details of this book, except for the fact that it moved me to tears. I need to re-read!
The Fault in our Stars by John Green: Okay, seriously. Does this book need any more hype lately? But still, it’s moving, so it’s on my list!
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck: Oh my word, this story kills me!
Life of Pi by Yann Martel: Another book whose ending made me crazy with emotions.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak: Of course this book is on this list! Of course!
Seriously, I could go on and on here! I mean, why even read if you aren’t moved by books, know what I mean? So pretty much ALL of them move me in some way.
Thank you so much Suey for sharing a great list of books! It has been forever since I have read The Good Earth (which I remember loving) and The Grapes of Wrath (which I really didn't care for), but I'm thinking I need a re-read of both of these one of these days! And, The Fault in Our Stars has been sitting on my shelf unread for far too long!
