15 Day Book Blogger Challenge: Day 5
I used to be a very emotional person, but for some reason it takes a lot to get me to ugly cry when reading. Occasionally I'll tear up and sniffle, but very rarely will I full on bawl my eyes out while reading. Now mind you, I have not read TFIOS or If I Stay yet, both of which I own. So when I had to think of a book that made me cry this once came to mind first.
Growing up I was never really close with my dad. We kind of coexisted in the same house. And I always regretted that, but never knew how to change it. I figured it was normal.
I remember reading The Last Song in my dorm room Junior year and just crying hysterically (SPOILER:highlight to read spoiler) when the dad got sick. and died. It really upset me because the main character took her dad for granted. And I saw myself in that character and I didn't like what I saw. I didn't want my story to end up like hers. So the tears came as I felt so much for these characters and all they had lost and missed out on.
I'm happy to report that my dad and I have grown really close this past year. While this book isn't what made us closer, it is a constant reminder to me not to take him for granted. Wow, this post turned into how much I love my dad, but that's okay. So what I'm trying to say is if you want a good cry go read this book. Make sure you have a full box of tissues with you!
