For today’s article I will be writing something similar to my “Top 3 Books We All Read In Elementary School” article. Except this article will be about the top 3 saddest books. I’m 100% sure that I cried for all of these books (don’t judge). I didn’t cry for one of these books, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t sad! Number one will be the saddest book, while number three will be the least. All of these books have a movie and I enjoyed them as well. Alright, now that we know that I’m an emotional mess, let’s move on to the books!

 

3. OLD YELLER

Ok so I know there is going to be A LOT of people saying that this book should be first because it’s the saddest. This is just my opinion and by putting this book on this list, I am saying that it is a sad book, it’s just I haven’t read the book in a very long time, therefore I don’t remember much. So this book is about a dog named Old Yeller. Yes I’m assuming by your knowledge of books, you probably know how this ones gonna end. (WARNING!!SPOILER ALERT) So if you don’t know how this book ends and don’t plan on reading it, then keep reading! At the end of the book, the dog is bitten by a wolf that has rabies. Since the dog is a threat to the family because he has rabies, the older son of the family is forced to shoot the dog. I know that is a terrible ending, which is why it’s on this list. On to the next book!

 

2. WHERE THE RED FERN GROWS

I mentioned this book in my other article, and of course I have to mention it in this one. I can’t even explain how sad this book is, it’s just so sad! I think that since it’s about animals, it made it worse for me. I’m not going to explain the whole book again but I will say talk about the ending. (WARNING SPOILER ALERT!!!) At the end of the book both dogs die near the same area, and two red ferns grow where the dogs had died. This is a very heartwarming story which is partly why it is very sad. Even my teacher was crying, as well as the rest of the class, but in my opinion, the movie wasn’t very sad. For some strange reason, I find books more emotional than I do movies. Now the last book!

 

1. THE OUTSIDERS 

This is the last book and OBVIOUSLY the saddest (well for me). Just writing about it is making me sad! So I actually just finished this book and I loved it. It’s a very emotional and heartwarming story about a group of boys called Greasers and the book explains their life. I’m not going to say anything about the end of the book since my English teacher would literally kill me! I know all 8th graders have read the book but there are 7th graders in this class that haven’t. So I’m not going to tell you why it’s sad (if you read it you’d definitely know why!) I obviously cried when I read the book, and the movie too. Which was very good by the way. I’m glad that I got the chance to read this book because it was really good! I probably will read it again someday!

 

I hope you enjoyed this article on the top 3 saddest books! Sorry if this article made you sad or ruined your day and if there’s anybody out there who cried for these books too than yay, I’m not alone! (Well not really yay but you know what I mean) That’s it for this weeks article, see you next week!
