BOOKS TO READ WHEN YOU NEED A GOOD CRY (PART 2)
Sequel to BOOKS TO READ WHEN YOU NEED A GOOD CRY
- •A Little Life by Hanya YanagiharaDefinitely in my top five favorite books (ever). So beautifully written - each sentence is carefully crafted. Soooo sad. This is more of an ugly-cry kinda book.
- •The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James BrownThe camaraderie described in this book is moving. Joe Rantz's family situation is also very sad. As a rower, I can relate to the feeling of "the boat" and Brown's descriptions of that feeling are powerful.
- •Atonement by Ian McEwanThe end of this book is killer. An amazing love story + family drama + mystery + WW II = success (and a few tears)
- •I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy NelsonI put this on the my other list, but I had to include it again. Amazing book. Read it.
- •Being Mortal by Atul GawandeWhew. This one gets personal. If you have an older loved one or are thinking about your future, this is a must-read. Thought-provoking and sad at the same time, this book forces us to confront the mess of getting old.
- •A Little Life by Hanya YanagiharaI had to put this one on here twice. I read it for the first time a year ago, and I have only now been able to pick it back up. Deeply stirring book, READ IT NOW!
