@Cuilin #fridayfeelings (on Saturday). Thanks @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick for the tag!

Surprisingly (at least to myself) I haven‘t had too many novels actually make me cry. However, I full on ugly cried to the point that I freaked out my husband reading All the Numbers! It truly is heartbreaking watching the mother tackle the accidental death of her son and her fight to process it. So good!

Cuilin I‘ll check out All the Numbers. Thanks for playing. 2y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Oh my! That sounds rough. 2y
candc320 @Cuilin I hope you like it! 2y
candc320 @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick it is rough but it is sooo good! 2y

@Cuilin #fridayfeelings on Saturday. Thanks for the tag, @MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm

I might be a 🤖 compared to others, but sometimes a precious moment will cause a little eye leakage.

My big weakness is dogs. A Dog's Purpose and Lily & the Octopus made me ugly cry so hard that Sarah Mclachlan is playing in my head as I type this just thinking about them.

Want to play? @BookNAround @DaveGreen7777 @candc320

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I‘ve heard these are tear jerkers! 2y

MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Animal stories get me every time! 😅 2y

@EadieB thanks for the tag. A couple I had to copy from you- they were among the first
Old Yeller
Where The Red Fern Grows
The Notebook- woke in the middle of the night and finished that book- cried 4 hours straight! Went to work with the reddest, baggiest eyes!! #FridayFeelings

Cathythoughts 🤦🏼‍♀️ oh no ! Crying is desperate for the eyes. Why can‘t we just cry & not have puffy eyes .... not fair 2y
Cuilin The Notebook has featured on many a list. Thanks for playing. 2y
EadieB You're welcome! Thanks for playing! 2y

Well just recently it was Dolly Parton's Songteller. The book thief. The last days of summer. I'm a huge crybaby though so lots of things make me cry 😀 @Cuilin @Megabooks thanks for the tag! #fridayfeelings

Megabooks I totally get that. I go through phases were I just close a book and shed some tears. 2y
Cuilin @Coleen_Nieto @Megabooks me too. Sometimes I shed a tear just because I finished a book and I‘ll miss the characters. Such a sop!! 2y
Jnieto25 I choke up even talking about the short story The Scarlet Ibis by James Hurst. 2y
Coleen_Nieto @Jnieto25 Now I have to read that story! 2y

#FridayFeelings @Cuilin

Two books that come to mind quickly would be

....The Little Prince , Antoine de Saint-Exupery

... A Fine Balance , Rohinton Mistry
❤️💔 Two heartbreakers

I tag all who‘d like to join in !

Cuilin @Cathythoughts A few have mentioned the Little Prince. Definitely a tear jerker. Have you seen the new animated movie? 2y

Thanks for the tag, @Cuilin !

Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips had me bawling, as did The Yearling by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings.

I cried a more moderate amount at Dickens's A Tale of Two Cities (my first literary cry) and Drew Gilpin Faust's This Republic of Suffering (my most recent literary cry). I also cry when I read The Gettysburg Address. (I never cried this much when I was younger. I blame motherhood.)


rather_be_reading Fierce Kingdom is so underrated! I loved it! 2y
ImperfectCJ @rather_be_reading It totally took me by surprise. So intense! It's been several years since I read it, and I still think about it and remember certain scenes vividly. 2y
Cuilin Oh gosh yes A Tale of Two cities !! Certainly had me shed a tear. This is a great list. I‘ll check out Fierce Kingdom. Thanks for playing. 2y
Cuilin @rather_be_reading do you have a list of books that made you cry? Consider yourself tagged! 2y

1) The Five People You Meet in Heaven-I love this book
2) The Fault in Our Stars

I loved the book but didn‘t cry until I saw the movie of A Man Called Ove.

Cuilin Thanks for playing. 📚🥲 2y
Megabooks Oh yes! I cried the first time I read Fault. 2y
