Top Ten Tuesday: Tear-jerkers

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature / weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week we make a top ten list from a given topic.

This week's topic is

Top ten four books that made me cry

I don't usually cry while reading books (as opposed to watching TV or movies or even commercials), but there are a few books that really have made an impact on me.

1. Scotland by Starlight by Nancy Volkers
I cried and I cried and I cried. Then I pulled myself together and cried some more.

2. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince / Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Need I say more? Still not convinced all of it was necessary.

3. The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch
You wouldn't think there'd be crying over this book. There was.

4. Matilda's Last Waltz by Tamara McKinley
This was my first Tamara McKinley book and it made a huge impact on me.

What books make you cry?

It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. It is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.

Goodreads challenge status: Read 6 of 35 books – 3 books ahead of schedule.

Since my last Monday post two weeks ago I've read Stiltskin by Andrew Buckley (read my review), a fresh spin on the classic fairy tales. Then Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple finally arrived in the mail, and I devoured it in just a couple of days, which is really fast for me (I seem to be reading a lot more and a lot faster this year, go me!). I absolutely loved it (read my review)! I also read Double Crossed by Ally Carter, a crossover between her Heist Society and Gallagher Girls series.

Double Crossed put me in an Ally Carter mood, so I picked up book 2 in the Gallagher Girls series, Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy. I waited until late last year to start the series because I didn't think I'd like it, but it turned out I was very much mistaken. :)

I think I'll pick up the Inkheart trilogy by Cornelia Funke again. I've already read Inkheart and Inkspell, but it's been so long I want to re-read both of them before starting Inkdeath.

What are you reading this week?
