15 Day Book Blogging Challenge: Day 5

April at Good Books and Good Wine came up with this fun challenge. I’ve been seeing it pop up all over my reader so I knew I had to try my hand at it. You can check out the full details here.Day 5: Recommend a tear jerker

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

Cancer, death, crappy family situations, and trouble fitting in all make for a sob worthy story. It didn’t help that I read this on the way to my Grandfather’s funeral.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

It’s a story about the Holocaust that’s narrated by DEATH. I was just a sniffling mess by the time I finished the book. I was also a bit too depressed to properly discuss the book for class.

Feel free to share your tear jerkers or link me to yours!

  1. I love tearjerkers. If a book can you cry, you know it’s well-written. I cry EVERY time I read The Book Thief. I just teared up reading the final chapters of “Everfound” (third book in the Skinjackers Trilogy), even though I’ve read that before, too. I usually get kind of sniffley at the end of Jane Eyre, and just thinking about the ending of A Tale of Two Cities makes me weepy. Oh, and the Time Traveler’s Wife… pretty sure that one makes everyone cry.

  2. I can’t remember myself reading any single book that would make feel so sorry for someone’s destiny that I would weep or be near to that condition.
    So I def. going to try one of these two to look if I just have never had such book or if my heart is made of stone ^^ I hope for second, lol
