Now this is a tough question! I can’t remember the last time I wept while reading a book. I do have the odd moment where I shed a single tear but the last time I truly sobbed at a book was when I read The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, which is completely understandable. That was a while back now though so I don’t think it counts considering I’ve had my moments. It was only just the other day ago when I found myself welling up. I was reading Wait For You by J. Lynn and I'm still not sure what possessed me to cry. I think it may have something to do with what had happened to our main character in the past. I just wanted to give Avery a big hug and tell her that everything would be okay. That she couldn’t let the haunting memories of her past keep her from enjoying the present. I was also uncontrollably happy when Avery and Cam finally got their happy ever after.
I always find myself crying over contemporary novels rather than any other genre. They seem to be a lot more emotive and this isn’t necessarily a good thing all the time but it does manage to work for what the author is trying to portray. Right now I’m on a bit of a contemporary hype and would love some recommendations. I don’t mind what age range its for but I am particularly enjoying New Adult at the minute which is strange for me!
