30 Days of Books
Day 6 – a book that makes you sad
Up until recently, even though I read a lot of books, I didn’t read sad books. If I thought there was a remote possibilty that it would not be a happy ending, I wouldn’t read it. Same goes for movies. I don’t know what was wrong with me. And I didn’t really read any Young Adult novels because I found that they weren’t always happy-go-lucky and I didn’t like that. And then my Sociology teacher recommended The Perks of Being a Wallflower (which does not make me sad) and then I read The Fault in Our Stars because, according to chapters.ca, if you like the former, you will love the latter. So I got The Fault in Our Stars and read it. And sobbed. And sobbed. And sobbed. Because that is one heartbreaking book. And one would think that I wouldn’t want to read it anymore, since I prefer happy endings, but I keep re-reading it. Because it’s so well written. Even though it makes me sad, it still makes me happy.
