So today was supposed to be another edition of the A to Z of a Happy Marriage but I’m totally not feeling it so you get a book blog post instead.
Now that I’m older, I seem to be drawn to more of the sappy books. Blame it on age or whatever but there are definitely a good handful that have made me cry!
Here are my 5 books that made me cry:
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
This is the most current book to make me cry! Not your typical Hollywood love story. When Lou loses her job, she finds a job taking care of Will who is paralyzed. She doesn’t realize how much Will and that job will change her life.
Through the Glass by Shannon Moroney
This book was fantastic! It had me angry, sad and every other emotion! Married only for a short time before her husband commits a violent crime, Shannon is thrust into the world of crime and justice and dealing with the stigma of guilt-by-association.
A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks
This isn’t the best literary book I’ve read to date but it has the title of first book to make me cry! In A Walk to Remember, Landon Carter narrates the story of his senior year in the late 1950s at Beaufort High, when he first discovers the power of love.
Man’s Search for Meaning by Victor E. Frankl
If you don’t cry at this, you’re heartless. “Forced” to read this for Grade 12 Religion class, this book made me cry while reading it but didn’t give me the punch in the gut until I was older. This is a heartbreaking story of Victor Frankl’s life and times in a Nazi death camp.
Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom
Tuesdays with Morrie is the final lesson between a college professor, Morrie, who is dying of ALS and one of his long lost students and the author of the book, Mitch Albom. I love this book! I’ve read it multiple times and it’s made me cry every. single. time. We even included a passage as a reading for our wedding!
So tell me, what books have made you cry? Do you find as you get older you cry more at books and movies, or am I the only one?
