What makes you tick?

So I was reading the novel Infinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon and in the beginning these schoolmates are harassing Nick the main character.  The harassing went past the whole joking stage into full on bullying insulting Nick's socially economic status, his clothing, and his mother.  I was reading this cringing, yelling and almost crying because I felt so bad for Nick.  I've noticed that certain situations in books evoke my emotions more than others where I'm literally yelling at characters.  After last night I relized that bullying is one of them. 

What about you?  Are there certain situations in books that having you yelling, cheering, crying, etc. out-loud?  If so which ones and what books are they in? 


  1. for me its when especially i can relate to characters and situations. I end up not sleeping at night:) even

  2. I don't like it when a character I like is mistreated. It can be anything from being bullied, to being locked up, etc. I'm very protective of characters I love.

    My favorite cheering moment is "THE kiss" The one you've waited the entire book for and then it finally happens!

  3. I get most worked up when a character is doing something stupid or embarrassing. I just want to slap them.
    I do love "the kiss," as Small Review says. I tend to squeal.

  4. Hmm, I really dislike it when the mean characters get away with everything! On the upside, I'm going to agree with Alison and Small Review, and say that "the kiss" is definitely a cheering moment.


I love love love hearing your wonderful thoughts! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.
