for a second there i thought the thread title was books that touched you in no no places. ANYWAY!

I read a lot of books, and i mean a lot but none of them really get to me. Though a series that i love to read is the Last Apprentice, the book has good imagery.

Though i have found that amny writers are like me with books and it seems that many people when writing their own stories do get sad as in cry. They get attacted to thier character, when reading anothers book they may not have the same connection as the author, or none at all, and i find that affects how people feel for it in the end.

The Te of Piglet. I know, my infantile mind cannot yet comprehend the classics (not to mention that I don't really like Fiction books), but the book mixes basic Taoist teachings with child-like curiosity and language~ I think I wanna be a Taoist now~

Some of the Dune books, 1984, Golden Compass (and the other two I don't recall names for), others I've forgotten about. These are just the most recent ones.

Death of a Salesman: I think this was the first book I voluntarily took seriously. I almost cried at the end -- only 'cause the music cues got in my head.

Lord of the Flies: It didn't touch me emotionally, but it really made me think about society.

The Giver: I remember reading this in the 6th grade. Made me re-think my perspective on rules and conformity.

The Invisible Man: Now, I don't really like reading about what Blacks faced through during the early years of integration 'cause it's been taught so much, but this book really caught my attention after the first few chapters of torture and electricity. I think this was the first thing I've read that really shocked me about the era of integration, pun intended.

Brave New World: By far, one of my favorite books (alongside Death of a Salesman). It's the prime example of a world run by technology. What I find most fascinating about this is that Huxley managed to depict the brutal truth about what really seems to be inevitable at such a primitive (excuse the incorrect diction) time of technology.

Catcher in the Rye: Really liked this because it illustrated what a normal teenager would probably do, given the freedom and means to "get away". Ditching school, running away from home, and trying to get laid. `-`


Hope I didn't spoil anything on accident. ;x

Harry Potter - My favourite fantasy series, almost cried when they released the final book

Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass. - These really gets you thinking of the world outside of our universe. (Alternate dimensions anyone?) Was sad in the end when the 2 love birds had to split up because they live in different dimensions.

Subtle Knife and Amber Spyglass, loved that series too.

The Dragons series by Patricia Werde, really the first fantasy books that REALLY got me to enjoy reading.

The first book - Eragon is one of my favorite books even to this day, though the sequels aren't that impressive.

Death of a Salesman made me cry for quite a while.
Hmm, what else books did I like.
Pride and Prejudice, Emma, War and Peace was a epic as well. Brothers Karamakov and Crime and Punishment were awesome in my opinion.

The Bartimaeus Triology - Great trilogy, I cried a bit at the end of the last book. (I wanted more NathanielxKitty, though ;_; they're such a tsundere pairing)

Didn't touch me emotionally but.
The Jon Shannow series: Wolf in Shadow, The Last Guardian, Bloodstone. Epic badass hero whos searching for Jerusalem after a tidal wave destroys most of earth.
Dark Moon, epic badass main hero and epic badass bard.
White wolf and Swords of night and day series. Epic badassery, and even more epic once Druss shows up. 50+ year old man with a massive axe who can cleave through 20 men.
All the above by David Gemmell, I recommend anything by him if you enjoy heroic fantasy.
Solomon Kane series which was written in the 1930s upto I THINK the 50s/60s would have to check can't remember who it was by.
The Gaunts Ghosts series by Dan Abnett, so many of my favourite characters died Q_Q
The Eisenhorn trilogy by Dan Abnett, series was written from the first person point of view which made it quite good.

And the only book to make me even shed a tear.
War of the Ancients trilogy by Richard Knaak. Crap writer but the last page made me shed a tear.

iono if i would consider it romance *shrugs*, but i have to admit it was a good book

for a touching book,
Bless Me, Ultima - not only did i learned my spanish curse words from here, but also somehow felt very drawn by it (or maybe it was just because of the raging hormones that tend to come during that time in life...)
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - its full of gar
oh yes and i nearly forgot, The Alchemist - the deepness of this book is like the little prince but better imo
