The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath and The Road by Cormac McCarthy. Both are soul-crushingly sad.

I love The Bell Jar with a passion. It's so fantastically written. It's so interesting to see how it closely reflects Sylvia Plath's own life. Which is most probably the reason for it being such a believable and wonderful book.

Also one of the few movies that translated equally as well into a movie format. The final chapter of this book is probably the most beautiful ending to a novel ever... especially considering the content leading up to it!

The Road is one of the few books I read within 24 hours. It was terrible, but compelling. I had to know what happened next.
