Q: Tell us about the most emotional scene you've ever read in a book - and how did you react?

 This is easy for me to answer - Rue's death in The Hunger Games. I really thought she'd make it longer than she did. She was so young and so little...that was really difficult to read. And yet it was beautiful at the same time, when Katniss places the flowers around her and makes the signal to the cameras that Rue's family in her district see on the screens. Yeah, I cried for a long time over her death.

What scene has had a powerful effect on you?

  1. The Hunger Games. In this series I was emotional too, but mostly the part about Katniss and her hard life. Although Rue's death was pretty sad too.

    1. Yes, there was definitely a lot of sadness in that trilogy. Rue's death just really struck me. So young and horrific that it was for entertainment. *sigh*

      Thanks so much for stopping by. :D Heading over to say hey to you. :)

  2. Oh my goodness, yes. Rue's death had me bawling my eyes out. And the flowers! I remember my oldest asking me what was wrong. I told him my book was wrong! It was beautiful. Old follower here. Here's my FF.

    1. Oh my gosh I know! Everything about it was just heart breaking. Seeing it onscreen too was so sad - I had to work hard not to cry in the theater! My daughter was so sad. I think it affected her more than any other part of the trilogy. Thanks for stopping by - on my way to say hi, too. :D

  6. Rue's death made me so sad too, because she tried so hard to help Katniss when that obviously isn't how the Hunger Games are played. Thanks for the FF love/follow, following back!
