I’m sure I’ll have it pointed out to me very soon that they have. In the meantime I’ll plead ignorance and plough ahead.
The rules of my #meme are as follows:
• Fess up to 5 books that have made you cry
• Thank the nice person who gave you ‘The Box of Tissues Award’
• Link back to me
• Nominate 5 new people to pass the award onto
FIVE BOOKS THAT HAVE MADE ME CRY
1. One Day – by David Nicholls
Although, yes, I did just rant about this book in my review of it…. It did make me cry.
2. The Five People You Meet In Heaven – by Mitch Albom
Tiny little book. I bought my copy in New York because I loved the rough unfinished edges on the pages. I didn’t know anything about it, just liked the feel of the thing. When I read it I was blown away by how much it affected me.
3. Tuesdays With Morrie – by Mitch Albom
I bought Tuesdays With Morrie because I was so touched by The Five People You Meet In Heaven. It is another tiny little book which rips through your defences and leaves you blubbing – I read most pages with a running internal monologue of ‘I will not cry, I will not cry’ I failed miserably. I won’t let my OH read this book as I think it would destroy him. Funnily enough his boss said the same thing to him the other day.
I haven’t read anything by Mr Parsons for ages, but I just love the way he writes and how he seems to know all of my inner secrets.
5. The Gargoyle – by Andrew Davidson
Lovely book, very long, a bit odd at times but steeped in romance.
I hope that the following fellow bloggers will accept the #meme and tell me the 5 books that made them cry:
Yes I know that is 6 people, I’m playing the odds! And if twitter ever lets me rejoin the party then I’ll be able to let you all know that you’ve been tagged too!
Taking a risk on @livingwithkids as I’m sure she’ll be quick to tell me this meme already exists!
If @singledadsdiary is feeling particularly lovely please could he paintbucket my image thing and let me have the coding so that I can look as though I know what I’m doing? 😉
