Okay, so we all know that TV shows and movies make us cry all the time (or am I in this alone??) I will admit I even cried during the beginning of Up and the ending of Tangled - when did they start making children movies so emotional anyway? But what about books?
I’m an emotional gal, so here’s my question of the day: Which book or passage made you genuinely cry while reading it?
I received The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger randomly. I was not fully prepared for this book! I can’t tell you how many times I blubbered in tears (maybe I AM that much of a wuss?) There are moments so sad, I couldn’t help it.
A new favorite book of mine is Shanghai Girls by Lisa See. When I read it last year, there was a single scene that left me sobbing like a baby on the bus. Without being too graphic, a Chinese woman allows horrible things to happen to her to prevent them from happening to her daughter who bore witness to it. As they held hands and she lay slowly dying she said “It was my honor to save you." I can’t even talk about it without crying.
Well, now you know what gets me.. how about you??
LET ME KNOW!
