You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!
What is the last book that made you cry? Tell us about the scene...

In terms of fantasy, I think I'm gonna have to go with A Storm of Swords, Book 3 of A Song of Fire and Ice. I'm not going to talk about scene specifics because that would be all spoilers. To be honest, I don't remember whether I cried while reading it or not, but if I didn't, it was because I was stunned tearless. It was SOOO sad.
Suffice it to say, something happens that is the biggest jaw-dropper of the entire series. So twisted and so tragic! As in, Oh no he did not! I think they're going to feature it on this season of the HBO series. I read something about George R.R. Martin remarking that when a "certain episode" airs this season, he's going to have to go hide under a rock to keep the fans from murdering him.
Uh...yeah. Pretty much. Anyway, enough said. Don't want to spoil anything. I know a lot of my followers are either reading it or planning to.

So, what was the last book you read that made you tear up?


  1. I love the addition of Mr. and Mrs. Klaus to your blog. Awesome!
    Sorry, but I am not familiar with your choice. However, I do understand those - Oh he did not! type of moments.

    Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. Love your holiday look, I watch the show and cried the first season LOL, so thanks for the warning in the books. Need to stock up on tissues asap.

    Happy Holidays!

  3. Ah poop! I have not started this one yet. I sure didn't cry in the first two, hopefully I can make it through this one without turning into a ball-bag!

  4. I was shocked when I read the part that you're talking about. In fact, I had to reread it a few times because I couldn't believe what had happened. I think I'm still in denial, lol. It's going to be really tough to watch those scenes if they air this season.

    Old follower. Thanks for stopping by!
