1- Wonder By R.J. Palacio

How can I forget the first book ever that made me tear. I thought people were exaggerating when they say books make them cry until I read this and it certainly affected me as a medicine student!

2. Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)

This was literally one of the books that changed my life and will forever get emotional when I read it. (Although it is not my favorite in the series).

Of course this had to make my list because Mr.Fredrik knows how to get me emotional!!!!

5. When Breath Becomes Air By Paul Kalanithi

When Breath Becomes Air

I have been recommending this to everyone in med-school since I read it in 3rd year. And it has been harvesting those 5 stars from everyone I recommended it to!!! This definitely had an impact on my life as a doctor!

Honorable Mentions:

I am always looking for books that destroy me in the best possible ways! what books did you have on your lists and what books should I read? recommend me some good emotional books below 🙂


  1. I absolutely agree with you about Jeff Zentner’s writing. I haven’t read this one yet but I wasn’t mentally prepared when I read The Serpent King. It took me completely off guard and left me emotional for quite a while. Love this list!
