Feature & Follow Friday: Tearjerkers

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow
Happy Friday! This week's question from Parajunkee & Alison:

Question of the Week: What was the last book that made you cry?

I'm not a big crier. A lot of times when I see a review and someone says they cried during a book, I'll be like, "Really? When? I didn't cry at all during that one..." I think it's because I don't cry during dystopians, or fantasies, or paranormal books. I guess I just can't relate in that way to books that aren't real. The books that make me cry are realistic. I just reviewed Maybe One Day, by Melissa Kantor. And I cried. Teens...cancer...well, that gets me every time.

I don't really enjoy crying that much. As a matter of fact, I read The Notebook years ago when it first came out. It absolutely ripped me apart. Then I read another Sparks book, maybe Message in a Bottle, which also made me cry. I don't read Nicholas Sparks anymore. (I know, I've been told all his books aren't like that.) I've never seen the movie The Notebook, and I don't want to.

So, how about you? What book made you cry? I'll be sure to remove it from my TBR (just kidding.....) Leave me a link, and be sure to visit our hosts to see all the participating blogs. Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for stopping by.

  5. Maybe One Day, oh my goodness, I want to read that! I've been putting it off because I know it's going to make me into a sobbing mess. :-) I guess the last book that made me cry was Iron Kissed by Patricia Briggs, on a re-read (you think I would have learned my lesson, right?!)

  6. I'm not a big crier either. But The Fault in Our Stars made cry a lot. And I had never heard of Maybe One Day, but teen cancer is always a heartbreaking subject. Maybe I'll check it out when I'm ready to cry a lot again.


Thanks for visiting! I LOVE comments! I've received several awards and because of the time involved, I now must make this an award free blog.
