Books that made me cry...

I don't think I'm a big crier in normal life. However my partner often refers to a 'tear quota' that I need to fill and and if I don’t, then I have a massive bawl to get it out of my system. Well, these books may have been read after a couple of dry months because they all had the tears streaming down my cheeks.

I made the mistake of reading Seven Little Australians in public and I think it was the first time I've cried in public. The ending took me by surprise and well, no fair! Meanwhile I started Me Before You at 9pm at night and was still reading with my eyes propped open with matchsticks at 4am as I had to know what happened!

We all need a good cry sometimes though and a good book can help you clear some of those emotions and give you a bit of a ‘pick-me-up’ at the same time. These have all been read and tested by many people. Unfortunately all are going to break your heart, at least just a little bit, but they’re worth it.
