Books That Made Me Cry

When I saw this prompt, I thought to myself “Only 6 books”….lol. I am an emotional reader and there are instances where I have cried over the littlest things in books. The books I have picked for today, though, are ones that made me cry from page one.

Top Ten Tuesday: Holiday/Seasonal Freebie (Books that Take Place in Cold Settings)

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

How it works:

She assigns each Tuesday a topic and then post her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join her and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.
