Tuesday’s With Morrie
The Diary of Anne Frank
The nightingale by Kristen Hannah
The light between oceans by M.L. Stedman
@Lorelei so good!!
Lots of feels in this one my friend! https://hubpages.com/literature/A-Spark-of-Light-Book-Review
I’ve never been much a fan of Jodi Picoult but I am willing to give this one a chance. I just finished a book that mentioned a school shooting and would like to read another story about a shooting.
It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover
Tandia by Bryce Courtenay
“The Nightengale” by Kristin Hannah…I not only wept, but this really stayed with me for a week. I couldn’t even start another book right away.
Ohh this one sounds really good! I think I am going to start with it!
I’m not a crier but this one had me bawling. I had my sister read it and she calls me crying when she finished it. Great book!
Read this one with a box of tissues close by. It’s really good
This is the only book that’s ever made me ugly cry ❤️❤️❤️
A Dog’s Purpose.
I can’t read about dogs. I know. KNOW I will cry! ??♀️
@Crystal I also watched the movie & cried through the whole last part of the movie. I had to find a way to accept my 16 year old Chihuahua was entering into her last phase of life. The book & movie helped me immensely. I’m the same. I just want to know if the dog is ok. ?
@Karri I get so mad when animals are hurt or killed in books. Do whatever you want to a person. I know it’s fake. But my heart breaks for animals no matter if it’s real or not ?
@Crystal exactly! I just cant.
A dog’s purpose is definitely not a book about dogs getting hurt or killed. It is a very moving story about “A dog’s purpose,” here on earth. It is very moving.
Most recently for me it was Eliza and her Monsters by Francesca Zappia.
A monster calls
Marley and Me
Where the Red Fern Grows
(I have a trend.)
@Melissa, oh my gosh. Where The Red Fern grows gets me every time!
Yep. Every time for me too
In terms of books that made me cry…there are a few actually, I had reread Anne of Green Gables and that made me cry, as did Chevy Stevens That night, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. And another one was Hawkmistress by Marion Zimmer Bradley.
I am currently in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix!
Umbridge is so evil and sadistic :/
