Today is day 4 of the Summer Lovin’ Read-a-thon
and today’s topic is Tears on My Pillow (books that made you cry). This is an easy one for me because I just recently read a book that made me bawl like a baby. I’m including one New Adult book and one YA book (since lots of my readers are YA).
Books that Made Me Cry
Girls Love Travis Walker
by Anne Pfeffer – I just read this book recently and it completely wrecked me (but in a good way!). Don’t let the frivolous title and cover fool you – this book was very real and extremely emotional. It deals with homelessness and love and loyalty. I literally cried through the last 25% of the book, but I loved it. I HIGHLY recommend this book! (This one is NA adult, though, with some sex scenes, so not really appropriate for the younger crowd).
The Darkest Minds
by Alexandra Bracken – When I was trying to think of a YA book that made me cry, this was the first one that came to mind. It’s been awhile since I read it, but I’m pretty sure I was in tears at the end of the book when Ruby makes a large sacrifice (I won’t spoil what it is). I still think about that ending often and can’t wait for the next book in the series to come out!
Book Spine Poetry
I have to admit that I actually used this book spine poetry for a recent entry in Top Ten Tuesday, so some of you may have already seen this. I don’t have that many physical books on my shelves and I don’t have a lot of time, so I didn’t think I’d be able to come up with another one very easily. This is kind of an eclectic mix of books (some Christian non-fiction, sci-fi and kids’ books), but it made an interesting poem!
