Follow Friday -Start the Waterworks!

Finally, Blogger is back up and we can get on with Follow Friday! This is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee.

This week's question is:

Q. The Blogger Apocalypse made me a little emotional. What is the most emotional scene in a book that you have read lately?

The end of The Art of Racing in the Rain had me bawling. (Read my reflection of it here.) It was very touching, heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. Enter confused husband that doesn't know what to do while I'm sobbing into my Kindle, rocking back and forth, repeatedly saying, "this is so sad; sooo sad." I confess, I am a cryer and cry at many books I read, but very rarely do I bawl as hard as I did for this one. Let's just say my eyes were twice their size for several hours.

So tell me, which books get your waterworks going? Or, for those of you in denial, which books did you happen to read while cutting onions?

Love and (a book) light,



  1. I haven't read The Art of Racing in the Rain yet but I have seen some good reviews of it. I am adding it to my TBR list.

  2. In total agreement with The Art of Racing in the Rain! I just finished it a couple of weeks ago (after refusing to read it for so long.) I was crying by the end of chapter one. Having two dogs myself, I kept looking at them and tearing up even more. It was a great book, but definitely got the waterworks going.

  3. Hopping through. I've heard great things about Art of Racing in the Rain. I should read it.
