What books have really moved you?
Me before you and firefly lane
@Maria I’ve read me before you but not firefly lane – I’ll add it to my list ?
Firefly Lane had me crying for hours afterwards. I loved that book so much <3
@Suzann did u know there’s a sequel ?
@Maria YES! Loved that too. Kristin Hannah sold me after that first read. I have read almost everyone of her books since then.
Kristin Hannah is my fave !

I read this years ago, very sad.

That book truly influenced me as a young teenager. Anytime drugs were on offer, I thought of that book and went another direction.
The Kite Runner, The Dovekeepers, The Nightingale, Ove, the Art of Racing in the Rain
adding the Dovekeepers… agreeing on all the others..
All books really move me.. .
A Tree Grows In Brooklyn ❤️
Ugh so many! I should start a list, but most of the books I have loved make me sad or happy cry!?♀️
I just finished The Nightengale and wow did it move me!
A prayer for Owen Meany
Does it get better? I rarely don’t finish a book but that and Ove I stopped after 50 pages….I just couldn’t get into the style of writing.
@Suzann best book I’ve ever read. In fact only book I’ve re read three times
@Suzann cry each time I read it
@Rosalind Maybe I will try again.
So many, but Schindler’s list comes to mind
Waiting for Morning by Karen Kingsbury. I could relate to so much in the book. . . I have yet to read the other books that follow.

the Final solution is pretty harrowing
Song of Achilles. And by ‘moved”, I mean DEVASTATED!
Thought of 2 more, The Road and Jonathon Livingston Seagull.

A Fine Balance, The Kite Runner and The Secret History.
Kite Runner, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, The Notebook, Me Before You, All the Light We Cannot See, The Nightingale, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Firefly Lane, The Last Lecture, The Color of Water: A Black Man’s Tribute to His White Mother, It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life of Love and War, Calling Me Home, and The Kitchen House. I don’t often give 5 stars on Goodreads, but to me these all met the criteria. Optimistic I will be adding The Night Circus to this list soon.

Nightingale, Firefly Lane, The Art of Racing in the Rain, A Man called Ove!
Have you read the great alone? That one by Kristin Hannah was my favorite by her
@Kara yeah but I liked the other two better!
Ahh. Have you read an you her other books? Magic hour, night road, and home front we’re really good as well!
@Kara I’ll check them out. I read a couple of her first novels and they weren’t as good. I liked Great Alone I just didn’t feel it had the depth that Th Nightingale and Firefly Lane did. She’s amazing
Yeah one of the first books she read I couldn’t finish. She definitely got a lot better you can see her growth from her first books to her more recent ones.
