Day 11 of the 40 day book challenge is ‘a book that made me cry’.
Rather than just one, I thought I’d go with a bunch of books that made me cry. Just a few that spring immediately to mind. There are lots more…
The World According to Garp by John Irving. If you’ve read this, you’ll probably know the bit I mean… Something happens and then the point of view shifts and so you don’t know the outcome. I couldn’t wait to find out – I flicked forward, learned the outcome and then cried and cried. Had to put the book down I was crying so much.
My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult. I didn’t want to read this – it didn’t sound like my kind of thing at all, probably because I don’t actually like books that are marketed as “tearjerkers” – but I absolutely loved it. I finished it sitting in Starbucks on Deansgate, Manchester, before work and doing proper gulping sobs. Embarrassing.
Anybody Out There by Marian Keyes. Read it on a plane. Proper gulping sobs. Embarrassing.
Dear Zoe by Philip Beard. Also read this on a plane. Again, made a total show of myself. When will I learn?!
What books have made you cry? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
