Feature & Follow Friday (February 21)

It's been a while since I have done one of these but the question for this week is perfect because I've cried over books this week--in public.

What was the last book that made you cry?

I have two books that have made me cry—perhaps weep may be a better word---lately. One is an annual reread and the other is a favorite romance

Anne of Green GablesAnne of Green Gables-it wasn't even the scene that makes most people cry. It was the part where Matthew goes to buy Anne her dress with puffed sleeves and bumbles his way through it. I was just struck by his kindness and generosity and I just couldn't stop myself from bursting into tears. Mind you, I was reading on my Kobo in a doctor's office at the time. Matthew...all the feels...all of them.

Never a Gentleman (The Drake's Rakes, #2)Never a Gentleman by Eileen Dreyer-This book is...difficult. Not in a bad way but there are some scenes that just make your gut turn inside out. There is a scene towards the middle that would make anyone cry because you just feel so terrible for the heroine and you want to beat the hero up with a pipe and them stomp on his face for good measure...while crying of course because the heroine is awesome. 


  1. Anne of Green Gables is one of mine too, but I go for the obvious and have a good sniffle when Matthew dies! It's like losing my Pop all over again every time :-(

    1. PS. I love the look of your blog - beautiful picture.

  2. I'm listening to Anne of Green Gables on audiobook right now! It definitely makes me tear up.
