If you're really feeling like you could use a good cry, Book Riot has put together a list of 100 Must-Read Sad Books That Make You Cry. 100. That is a lot of tears. Quite a few of the ones I've read have actually made me cry and I rarely cry when I'm reading. I am a little disappointed that Little Women isn't on the Children's part of the list.
And if that's not enough, Bustle has put together a list of 12 Devastating Fiction Books To Read if You're Looking For Something Truly Grim. There are certainly a couple here that broke me.
After all of that, you might be ready for some laughs. NPR put together this list of Funny Books in August 2019. I don't really think of myself as reading a lot of funny books but I have actually read 19 of these.
Now, if you want to both laugh and cry, Book Riot has also put together a list of 8 Tragicomic Memoirs To Make You Laugh and Cry.
That's it for this week. Next week, I'm going to hit you with a whole lot of historical fiction lists!
