I stumbled across this 30 day book challenge by The Chronicles of Radiya and decided to give it a try. Hopefully it will lead to 30 consecutive days of blogging that liven up the blog a bit and give us a chance to get to know each other a little better.
Day 6: A Book That Broke Your Heart
I’m not going to go into details because I don’t want to spoil anything for those of you who haven’t read it, but The Fault in Our Stars is one of the many books that turns me into an emotional mess. The first time I read it, I had to stop reading at certain points because my tears made it hard to read the words on the page. You’d think that the second time around I’d be able to make it through without this happening, right? Even though I know what’s going to happen, I still end up crying. Every. Single. Time.
I don’t think my reactions were nearly as great as my mom’s though. When I lent this to her, I told her nothing about the plot; only that it’s an excellent book. She read it in one sitting and then came into my room crying and asking, “how could you do this to me?” She now explicitly asks whether or not a book is going to make her cry before she borrows it.
