Soo originally I was going to write a post about all of the books that I've read that made me cry, but as I was making the list I realized that the Harry Potter series was going to take over the whole thing. So instead of writing a list that has a bunch of different books, I decided to write all the ways that the Harry Potter series broke my heart.
I'm not a big crier at all, so I think that shows how much I loved this series. I am such a huge Harry Potter nerd. Okay, so here's my list:
(If you've never read the series and don't want spoilers, stop reading now!!)
Things that made my eyes misty but not quite cry:
1. Harry sees his parents in the Mirror of Erised
Harry tries to hold his mother's hand and there's nothing there
2. Hedwig's death
I can't handle it when an animal dies.
3. Hermoine erased her parent's memory of her
Oh god, Hermoine...I just want to give her a big hug.
4. Ron left
Stupid Horcrux locket!!
5. Harry visits his parent's graves in Godric's Hollow
It was his first time he ever got to visit.
6. Dobby the house elf's death
I'm not crying, you're crying!!!! Seriously, it was so sad.
These are the moments that brought the real tears:
7. Dumbledore's death & funeral
I remember throwing the book across the room and declaring my hatred for Snape. lol! Ohhh how things change. Snape ends up being my favorite character (after Hagrid, of course!lol).
8. Sirius Black's Death
Not only did Harry witness it, but Sirius was the last "family" that he had. He was supposed to move in with him someday and finally have a loving family member with him!
9. Mrs. Weasley's Boggart
Her in tears trying to get rid of the boggart that kept appearing as dead family members
10. Snape's flashback
This one really tore my heart out. We find out that Snape was actually Harry's greatest ally. We also see the great love that Snape had for Harry's mother.
11. Fred's death
This one hit me the absolute hardest. I'm not sure if it was because Fred and George were the inseparable jokesters and I couldn't believe they would take one away OR if it was because I have A LOT of siblings so I couldn't image losing one. Probably both reasons. And also, the Weasely's are the one solid "good" in this book and it broke my heart when they devastated them.
What did you think was the saddest scene in Harry Potter?
