Follow Friday (#16)

Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read where you meet and follow different bloggers.

Question of the Week: What is the last book that made you cry? Tell us about the scene...

Oh dear. Is it sad to admit that I cry a lot at books? I think the last one I cried at was The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. There wasn't a specific scene - it's about World War II, how can you not cry at pretty much everything? But I remember four scenes that really set me off. Not to post spoilers, but the first one was about Max, the second was about Hans, the third...the third really got the waterworks going, and it was again about Max (yes, favourite character right there!), and the last was the scene with Rudy...if you've read it; yeah, that scene.

However, my all-time worst tear-jerker was My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult. I kid you not when I say that I finished it and just wept - I was literally hysterical. How lovely.

So what books are your ultimate tear-jerkers? Leave a comment below, and don't forget to enter the New Year, New Books! giveaway!

  7. I haven't read this but some of my friends rave about it.
    I've never read My Sister's Keeper either but I've seen the film and that had me bawling like a baby.
    Some really emotional books out there.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a fab weekend.

    1. As soon as I finished the book, I told my mum that we needed the film - and when we got it, I just started sobbing. Great novel, terrible headaches.

    1. I swear once I read an emotional scene in a novel, the waterworks turn on and never turn off! Oh, is it? I hope they don't make you go over it so much that you end up hating it! D:

    1. YES! Isn't it the saddest and most beautiful thing ever? I'd better stop talking about it now, before I start bawling all over again!

  13. Woah, yeah My Sister's Keeper was intense...I didn't cry, though. Whih is probably because I almost never cry but I totally get why you would - it's so, so sad, bt at the same time kind of empowering to see how strong Anna is

    1. I wish I didn't cry so much, the headaches afterwards are terrible. Yeah, it was intense, and definitely empowering - it made me feel that if a little girl - although fictional - could be that strong, then the rest of us could be, too.

    1. Yup, full-blast for certain. The Book Thief isn't as bad, but I'm sure some tears will manage to leak out!

    I have forgotten all about My Sister's Keeper! It was so heartbreaking. Though I didn't like how the movie changed things around.
