Favorite “Aww” Moments In Books

Most of my favorite stories have "aww" moments. Suffering...then triumph. Difficulties...followed by transformation. Confusion...and finally understanding. 

But running across these unexpected "aww" moments is part of the joy of reading, and I don't want to spoil that for you. Rather than point out the moments, let me instead simply point out the books.

Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann

The Hours by Michael Cunningham

My Name is Asher Lev by Chaim Potok

The Easter Parade by Richard Yates

Last Night at the Lobster by Stewart O'Nan

Mrs. Bridge by Evan S. Connell

Gilead by Marilynne Robinson

Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont by Elizabeth Taylor

A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each Tuesday That Artsy Reader Girl assigns a topic and then post her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join her and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.
