So this was a blog post idea that I took from a book reviewer page. She listed 30 total topics and I thought it would be fun to see how many I could do! “What Books Made You Cry” was #24.
Typically, it’s not something sad that makes me cry the most. Although, if it’s a pet death in a book I will cry no matter what. There is nothing sadder to me than the loss of an animal companion. Other than that, I’ve come to realize that achievement more than anything moves me the most.
This year I started the Stormlight Archive Series by Brandon Sanderson and found myself staying up until 2am crying alone in my bed reading about how against all odds and even with a broken leg, or cut off from his magic, Kaladin Stormblessed survives, overcomes all odds and rises to a new level of power and prominence every single time. I’m currently up to date on this series and I miss Kaladin terribly, so hurry it up Sanderson!
Ultimate good conquering ultimate evil appeals to my sense of justice and since it rarely happens in real life, I find it so inspiring and wonderful when I read about it in books. When a character who is so deserving of rewards and rarely gets them, finally has something good happen to them, it brings on the tears every time!
