Feature & Follow Friday (1st one!)

Alrighty. So, we haven't really done this meme before... BUT, it seemed cool, and we're on Spring Break so we thought we'd give it a try!

this week's question
Tell us about the most emotional scene you’ve ever read in a book – and how did you react?
our answer
Well, usually we don't read books together unless they're very controversial in terms of the ratings the book might be receiving. We read this book once called The Last Mother's Day. We can't seem to remember who it was written by, but in the book the girl who had witnessed the suicide her mother committed was around five or six years old.She couldn't really understand what was going on at the time. Anyways, it was Mother's Day, and the daughter had made her mother a card in school. When she came home on the bus, she couldn't find her mother. She searched in every room, until finally she heard water running and opened the bathroom to find her mother hanging from the showerhead. In terms of our reaction, we completely shut down and cried for about an hour and a half. We hugged each other the whole time, we did not finish the book actually. In fact, we kind of went on a "reading strike" for about a month and two weeks. It was just a terrible scene that no person should ever have to experience - not to speak of just reading it...

  8. What a traumatic scene! That's so awful =( I would have cried my eyes out if I read that too. I don't think I've ever read anything as traumatic as that. If I did I must have mentally blocked it out...
