What’s that one book that made you cry?
The Diary of Anne Frank
Sophie’s Choice! Not only did I cry, I went into my sleeping daughter”s room, she was four at the the time, at one in the morning and held her close as I cried. OMG. I will never forget that. And when I went to see the movie with my mother and sister, I cried the first time I saw Sophie’s sadness. They kept asking me why I was crying. Since I had read the book, I answered, ” You’ll see why.”
Elizabeth Noble – Things to Tell my Daughters and Jo Jo Moyes – Me Before You

“Lenny’s Book of Everything”, by Karen Foxlee. I very rarely cry when reading, but I certainly did with this book.
Me Before You…
Walk to Remember
The movie too
Danielle Steele’s The Gift. Cried for at least 10 pages
Also, Henry’s Sister’s by Cathy Lamb. I started reading it late one night. Really boring start. I wanted to give up but I didn’t want to get out of my warm, comfy bed to get another book so I kept reading. Ended up really liking it. Funny and sad.
I loved that book ❤️
Uncle Toms Cabin. It made me cry deep soul tears. I will never in my life comprehend a mans power to inflict evil upon another. Rips me to shreds.
If you haven’t read it…read it.
