What was the last book that made you cry?

Yeah that's easy. The last book I read that made me cry was The Book Thief. I read it in December and got teary eyed during several different parts. But the ending killed me. Bawled like a baby. Snot. Ugly cry. You get the picture. One of the best books I've ever read by far, but definitely a tear jerker. Anyone seen the film? I haven't gotten the chance yet.

  4. I'm one of the people who finds The Book Thief massively overrated. I felt so validated when I read so many well-written negative reviews and discovered I wasn't the only person who hated that book so badly. I really can't understand why it's gotten so much hype.

    1. Oh I loved it! Strangely, I didn't hear much hype. Just a couple of recommendations from good friends. Probably the hype made your expectations super high, which is hard to compete with. To each her own, though. Happy Friday! :D

  10. Still haven't read that book! Everyone says it's amazing, only the size of it is a bit intimidating...

    1. Thanks so much for the follow. You know, I read it on my kindle, so I couldn't actually see how big it was, but it didn't seem long to me at all. It's a super easy reach you'll just breeze through and barely notice the pages going by. You should definitely dive in! :D

  11. I'm another that has yet to read it and I own it so I don't have any excuses!

    1. LOL. No worries. I'd heard about it for years and just got to it a couple months ago. Definitely worth the wait, though. Have a great weekend! :D

    1. Agreed! I'm a little afraid to see the film. I hear they did a stellar job on it. Happy Friday!

  13. I don't think I've ever cried over a book. Some movies have caused allergy symptoms though.

  14. I can't remember crying on a book, but any book about Nazis will probably make me tear up a little.

    1. Yeah, I feel ya. I don't read much WWII, and there's good reason for that. Thanks Maurice! :D

    1. Yeah, it's one you kind of have to read alone, because the ugly cry was definitely there for me. Thanks for the G+ follow. I'll add you back. :D

  21. I didn't really like the Book Thief for some reason. I read it a while ago so I can't remember why. Still want to see the movie though. :) Hope you're having a great weekend!
