Question of the Week: Has a book ever left you feeling depressed? If so, make sure to share what it was and why.


YES! But for different reasons...


The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)The Hunger Games (series): This left me feeling bad depressed, there was just nothing happy in this world and I wanted to cry for Peeta, Gale, Katniss, everyone! Plus, I loved Gale and ya know.... Well, you do if you read it lol! The Hunger Games left me feeling all dark and gloomy-depressed, like there was nothing good in the world. 


City of Souls (Signs of the Zodiac, #4)


City of Souls by Vicki Pettersson: If you've picked up this series then you've been introduced to Joanna Archer and the Agents of Light, including the sexy weapons maker, Hunter. In this book, 4th in the Signs of the Zodiac series, things don't go so well for Hunter & Jo. By the end of the book I was a blubbering mess that just wanted to curl up in bed and rail at the fates for these two characters and I won't lie...give the author a good shake for putting them, and me, through it. I wanted nothing more then a HEA for them. So City of Souls depressed me because it just ripped out my heart, or so it felt. 




Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1)Fifty Shades (series): Oh Fifty, Fifty, Fifty....This series was like an addiction. I lived off coffee and 4 hours of sleep while reading, it seriously became my whole world and I never wanted it to end. But then... it did...and that depressed the hell out of me. It was like my boyfriend broke up with me or something.

So, has a book ever left you feeling depressed? Do you like when that happens? Me, I love emotionally packed books that can leave me feeling that way. Share your thoughts and join the follow by linking up below!

Ha, like your boyfriend broke up with you. Emotionally exhausting.
I agree with you on the Hunger Games, makes you feel depressed and like there is no hope for anything good ever again.

Oh yes. I have to agree that The Hunger Games ending made me depressed. Nothing like second best. Fifty Shades of Grey mad me cry and yell until I picked up Fifty Shades Darker. I picked 3 Depressing Book Endings for my blog post as well.

Have a great weekend!

I haven't read any of those series! I've heard great things about the Hunger Game series!

Have a great reading week!

Victoria said...

Catching Fire left me the most depressed. It ends with very little hope in sight.

Neyra @Darkest Addictions said...

I haven't read any of these books either, but I've heard both good and bad things about 50 Shades of Grey, and of course Hunger Games, everyone LOVES that book! ^-^

And to answer your question, yes and no. I do like when books leave me emotionally depressed, but when a series is soo good, not like with the last book in my post x]

Madame D said...

I'm with you on the Hunger Games series and I'll most likely be a mess when I'm finished with Mr. Grey.

Fiona Druce said...

You know, I haven't read Hunger Games, yet. I kept just sort of ignoring it and then the movie came out. I just don't know if I could handle the premise, itself :p I'm depressed just thinking about it, lol!

Crystal--sorry to be so late, it has been a rough one today. UGH.
Some days it just pays to stay in bed, I think.

Great list!
