The One That Made Me Cry So Much I Can't Reread It:

Did any of these make you cry? If not, what books have inspired your tears?


HP 7 made my list too, that book made me cry pretty much consistently from beginning to end. Great choices, I've been tempted to read A Monster Calls a few times but maybe not if it's that emotionally devastating! My TTT :)
I had to add A Monster Calls to my TBR list because I've been seeing it on so many lists today. I'm a total sucker for a book that makes me cry!

I added A Monster Calls too, because I have never heard of it. Several of your other picks though have made me gross-cry before. Great picks! Here's mine if you want to stop by
The Fault in Our Stars, HP, and Code Name Verity all made my list. Verity still makes me tear up from time to time...and I so want to go back and experience it again. Loved your list!

A Monster Calls is not emotionally devastating in an entirely bad way. Actually I was worried as I was reading that he couldn't pull off a proper end for that, but he did.

I would say: ENJOY! But that's not the right word….

A Monster Calls is the only one that made me gross cry. It completely freaked my husband out when he came home. I am so not a crier.
Brandy said…
Yeah…a couple of lines from Code Name Verity seen online and I'm sniffling again.

I bawled like a baby when D died and I knew it was going to happen. Definitely CNV and The Fault in Our Stars-I cried watching he movie trailer...of course, I cry at everything these days. Dang meds.

I cried at the trailer too and got mad all over again because I could see how manipulative it was too. (A MONSTER CALLS is so such a better book.)

Future Favorite Friday: June 2018

I take the 2nd Friday of every month to highlight some upcoming releases I am looking forward to that I hope are Future Favorites. Feel free to do your own post, just please link back to my blog and tell me about your post in the comments.

Two Naomis was one of my favorite reads of 2016 so I was understandably excited it's getting a sequel. 

In this sequel to Two Naomis, now that Naomi Marie’s mom and Naomi E.’s dad are married, the girls have learned to do a lot of things together, like All-Family Sunday dinners, sixth-grade homework, navigating the subway system by themselves, and visiting their favorite bakeries. Until sixth grade in a new school presents a whole new set of surprises and challenges.

Trusting her gut has worked for Naomi E. all her life, and she figures that it will be an asset to her role as a Peer Mediator—until she realizes how much of the job requires the Art of Compromise, which she’s only just starting to get used to at home.

Naomi Marie is excited about maki…

Lovely War

When I first heard about Lovely War by Julie Berry, I remember thinking, "Whoa, that's ambitious." And it is. The scope and depth of this story with all of its intricacies and thematic elements is massive. Berry manages to hold it all together beautifully. She managed it so beautifully that it is so far my favorite YA read of 2019.

The ecstasies and the wounds of love were Aphrodite's work. Forging passions was what she was born to do. She, too, was a welder, a mistress of fire of a different sort, working in materials more powerful and resistant than carbon and iron. And what did that toil do to her?

In 1942 New York City while men are partying on the eve of shipping off to war, a stunning couple arrives at a hotel in the midst of the revelry and departs for their room followed by an overly enthusiastic bellboy. But none of these figures are as they appear. The couple is Aphrodite and Ares on a secret assignation that turns out to be not so secret as the bellboy is Ap…

TTT: Auto-Buy Authors

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly themed blog hop created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl.

This Week's Topic: Auto-Buy Authors

Here are my auto-buy authors and their most recent or coming soon release. Also, I got stuck on twelve and couldn't cut it down any further. So it's really Top Twelve Tuesday today. Or Thirteen rather as I sort of combined Emma and Genevieve. (I auto-buy all their individual projects too.)

Who are some authors whose books you buy no matter what?

(I don't know what it says about me that there is only one male author on this list, but I don't dislike whatever it is.)

2019 Favorites So Far...

Who can believe we are halfway through 2019 already??? It's certainly hard for me. (Also, where did my summer go?) are my favorite reads of the year this year so far.
