Dirty Little Secrets- the tear jerker

Dirty Little Secret is a weekly meme hosted by the ladies over at Under the Covers to get to know other bloggers and our readers more intimately by asking them a question hoping to reveal their dirty little secrets. 


This weeks question:
What books have recently made you cry?


I get a little misty eyed over a lot of the books I read but two really got me choked up recently...
Karen Marie Moning's the Immortal Highlander and Robyn Carr's A Virgin River Christmas. Kinda random and totally different styles but amazing books. They'd have me laughing one second and then completely bawling like a baby the next. The ending of the Immortal Highlander. Pfew. Yeah. Total mess. And Carr's book just about did me in. I had to put it down a couple of times because I so teary eyed I couldn't see the words anymore. The emotional pain and trauma the heroine/hero are dealing with [the death of her husband and his best friend] was just staggering and so well written. Damn. I'm getting all teared up again just thinking about them. Fantastic books/series/authors.

 

So what's the last one that had you bawling?!

    1. He really surprised the hell out of me. Took me months after finishing the one before to finally pick up his book. Just wasn't a fan of his but damn if he didn't just floor me.
