Top 5 Books That Made Me Cry!

I usually cry during most books I don’t know why. I can cr from laughing, happiness, or sadness.  Do you cry or laugh at books? Let me know in the comments below!

A Monster Cries by Patrick Ness

I was a blubbery mess after reading A Monser Calls. I was very connected to the character by the end of the story and I was crying right along with Conor. 8621462

A Court of Mist Of Fury by Sarah J. Maas

Overall this series is my favorite, I experienced all of the emotions. I would have to say I cried more in the last book than in this one but I cried in all three. 17927395

Not After Everything by Michelle Levy

ALL the feels. You want to hurt certain people and hug others. I definitely cried from page18520658 one to the very end.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Come Back To Me by Mila Gray

A military romance that pulls at your heartstrings. I was very anxious while I read it, I was worried for the ending to see who would live her brother or her boyfriend. So, to some that up, I cried A LOT. I would definitely recommend it though!

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

A more family sadness than a relationship but both are present. I sympathized for Taylors family by crying.  11071466

What I’ve Recently Bought

I have been cutting down on my book buying. I am trying to get my TBR shelf to be a lower number. I swear it’s ever readers dream for that to happen, but overall my TBR pile started to dwindle until I started to get into a reading slump.

I have around 35-40 books unread on my shelves, some I really want to read others not so much. Some of the books I’ve had for almost 2 years and I DO want to read them I just have no motivation to actually read them.

I recently bought Paper Hearts by Ali Novak, Lucking in Love by Kasie West, It’s Kind Of A Funny Story by Ned Vizzini, and Moon Called by Patricia Briggs. I have started reading Moon Called and I am really enjoying it so far! You can check out some pictures of Moon Called on my Instagram.
