Book List: 3 Books I Read When I Need a Good Cry

Tuesday, February 2, 2010

This week's book list topic is 3 Books I Read When I Need a Good Cry . Here's my list...

1) Tuesdays with Morrie- Albom's nonfiction book was a bestseller for a reason. People identify with the fear and uncomfortable feelings brought on by watching someone you love slowly die. This book showed one man's journey to dealing with the pain.

2) The Bridge to Terabithia- This book was one of my first introduction to death in literature and the story has always stayed with me.

3) The Notebook - My grandpa had Alzheimer's and watching him slowly fade while my grandma cared for him was so heartbreaking. This book always reminded me of their love.

Hop on over to Lost in Books to see more about the weekly lists.

"Bridge to Terabithia" was one of my favorite books growing up ... and it is definitely one that makes you cry. It was lovely to see it on your list ... I wish everyone read this book.

Those are some sad choices. I almost chose "A Walk to Remember" by Nicholas Sparks because that made me cry, cry, cry.
