Q: What is the last book that made you cry? Tell us about the scene…

My Answer: I actually cry with books quite easily as I get attached to the characters easily, but the last one that made me cry (looking back at my read list) was 'Before I Die' by Jenny Downham. I read it because the film based on it just came out and I wanted to see it (missed it in the cinema though) I knew it would affect me as it is about a girl dying of cancer and I lost my gran in April to cancer, so it was personal. Even so I still would have been crying, it was a very moving book and so realistic in places.

Happy Hopping & Blogging. :D

I get quite emotional in books,too, because I get so attached to characters.

I haven't read that one. It seems like a real tearjerker.

Michelle - It's just been re-released with a new name to go with the movie. SO you may see it on the shelves as 'Now is Good.' Have a great weekend.

Quinn- just like me! This one had me in absolute floods!

Sonnie - it's really worth a read. :D

Annette - I don't think anyone can read this without crying.

Nina - I know what you mean. I couldn't stop. I also loved it more than I thought I would. Ended up buying my own copy to keep.

Have a fab weekend all. :)

I haven't read this book yet. I have past it and considered it but never actually picked it up. May have to now! I am actually the opposite, I do not cry easy so if a book makes me cry it is automatically a five star rating!

Welcome Heather B, great to have you!
I really do recommend it. Worth a try for sure, it's definitely going to make you cry. What has made you cry then? any recommendations?
