In the mood to read something that will make you cry? I have a list for that!

Okay… okay… ;) I know NOBODY is reaaaaaally in the mood to cry. This is sort of a silly question, but generally when we cry while we read, it’s because we’ve become one with the book. Connected with the characters, which, wouldn’t it be fair to say, means the book is awesome? Exactly!

Awesome IS what we’re in the mood for. That journey, that connection, and that emotional growth that is often proceeded through heartache and pain, but that leaves us exhilarated in the end. Or emotionally spent. All that to say, we’ve got a list!! :D

Blasphemy! Ugly crying is the best!

Maryse… I have an idea for a *new* list! *giggle* (it’s not really, but we can pretend!)

The Manny List! A comprehensive list for all those books that give you the best mega-angsty case of pretzel tummy, or those that make you want blubber your way through an ugly cry, or those ones that are just so over-the-top you fear a cavity sweet or maybe even super hide your eyes scary… Just the “oh my gah, gimme Manny” list! Perfect, right?!?

Maryse: I just finished FIRST by Kimberly Adams. One of your recommendations from 2017. It was a really an emotional journey. But had a somewhat good ending, but not quite as good as I would have liked. You have made so many good recommendations through the years. Thank-you!

Gah! I’m already weepy and I’m only reading lists… Dastardly!

*rubs hands together*

Oh yeah, all my favorite lists in one place. :P

LOL Grey!!! YES!! A manny list!!!

And just in case I’m quiet, it’s ’cause I’m reorganizing the blog in the background. It’s time for a proper overhaul and making navigation of the site easier. :)

Let me know if you guys have any suggestions of stuff you wish you could access easier.

I’ve got a love-hate type of relationship with these kinda books. Sometimes you need Manny+chocolate+a large glass of wine+a box of tissues.

A reorganise of the page is a fun idea, Maryse. I don’t think I have any special suggestions. I trust you :D I don’t usually have any problems finding stuff, anyway.
