CimmaronThis Week's QuestionWhat books have recently made you cry?
I can only think of one book that I've read in the past few months that had me balling my eyes out and that would be Colleen Hoover's Slammed. I can't remember any other time where I had to put the book down, step away and cry my eyes out because a book made me feel so emotionally wrecked. For the most part I get teary eye and take a quick breather but it wasn't the case with Slammed. Colleen Hoover's story was just so real and made me feel the emotions that her characters were feeling. Without giving away any spoilers of the book, Slammed tells the story of 18 year old, Lake, and the struggles she goes through after abruptly losing her father and then finding out months later that her mother has a terminal illness. Not only does she have to deal with coming to terms about possibly losing another parent but Lake also has to take on the responsibility of being the parent to her little brother. Just thinking about losing my own parents at that age and taking on the responsibilities of caring for my younger siblings really made me think if I would have been strong enough as Lake to take on so much.The sequel, Point of Retreat, left me a hot mess as well. I read these books back to back and I feel like I ended up using a whole box of Kleenex because I cried to much.
Now that we've shared our Dirty Little Secret with you, what's yours?
