Follow Friday!!

It's Follow Friday!  

Just glad Blogger got things worked out in time to do this on Friday :)

Today's Follow Friday question is:

Q. The Blogger Apocalypse made me a little emotional. What is the most emotional scene in a book that you have read lately?

Let me think--I haven't read a lot of overly emotional books lately.  I recently finished The Hollow (The Hollow Trilogy) by Jessica Verday and there are a few emotional scenes in it.  If you haven't read the book & want to, stop here to avoid spoilers :)  The most emotional scene, for me, was on prom night when Abbey goes to the cemetary in her prom gown to visit Kristen.  She wades into the river where Kristen drowned and finally seems to accept that her best friend is dead.  Her emotional turmoil mirrored my own when I lost someone close to me and reading it was a little difficult.  The other emotional scene is at the end of the book when she learns the truth about Nikolas, Katey and Caspian and feels like she is losing her mind.  The scene is so powerfully written that, even though you can see it coming, her shock is still overwhelming.  I think the theme of loss that is so prevalent in this book made the whole experience personal for me, making it very emotional.  But, it is still a good read and I'd recommend it.

Thanks for stopping by my Follow Friday.  Don't forget to hit the follow button :)
