I have a confession to make. I am one of those people who cries when watching movies. I mean, it really doesn’t take much. The last movie I teared up in was Frozen (the beginning was sad. IT WAS!). I have even shed happy tears. Have you seen Sense and Sensibility when Elinor realizes who Mr. Ferrars married? I love that scene.
But, ironically enough, I rarely cry when reading books. I’m much more likely to cry tears over a sad novel than a happy one, but, I just don’t find myself doing it often (also if the book makes me that sad, I’m usually very irritated with the author as well for not giving me a HEA). That said, one book stands out in my memory because I was ugly crying: Francine Rivers’ A Voice in the Wind. I cried and cried until I turned the next page and saw that there was a book two. The closest book that made me happy cry? Becky Wade’s My Stubborn Heart.
So, what books have you read that made you cry happy tears? Sad tears? Ugly tears?

I know Liz Curtis Higgs’ “Grace in Thine Eyes” made me cried what feel my eyes out!! Never have I cried as hard as I did when reading that book (I cried throughout each book in the series, but not nearly bad as this one)! You would have thought I just lost a family member! I can think of any happy tears I have shed at the moment, but I’m sure I have!
Oh my goodness, I completely forgot about this series. Talk about an intense series! If I didn’t cry, I can promise you my emotions had me on edge the whole time.
