Yesterday after I reviewed If I Stay by Gayle Forman , I sat back and thought about the books that actually made me cry when I was reading them. I am pretty emotional when it comes to movies and cry like a baby but very few books have managed to have that effect. So here’s my list of books which caused me to have an emotional outburst irrespective of the place where I was reading them.

Black Beauty by Anna Sewell :

have cried every time I have read this book. It was a childhood fav and still is. I have such an emotional attachment with the  book that I still have my first copy of the book which I was bought  when I was 10 yrs old.

Before I Die by Jenny Downham [Review]

This is one of those books that I took without any high expectations but was so drawn into the story that I would recommend it to all. You will need a box of tissues to control those tears though 🙂

Love Story by Erich Segal:

This is one book I take with me while I travel.After 10 years this still has the effect it had when  had Iread   it for the first time. Jenny and Oliver and their love story always makes a wonderfully tears filled read.

I Stay by Gayle Forman: [Review]

I reviewed it yesterday so you pretty much know what I thought and went through while reading this great book. Absolutely  great book with emotions wonderfully  painted.

Book Thief by Markus Zusak :

Thinking of this book I start getting this crushing feeling and I really feel if  people haven’t read a book as good as this they are missing something very important.Read it.

Thomas Jefferson said “I cannot live without books.”


Books are the best friends we can make .For me this friendship started very early.It definitely helps when you have 3 generations of book lovers in the family.


I was a proud owner of set of comics and story books when was just one year old (not that I read any at that age!). Dad wanted to inculcate the habit of reading in me , so in spite of my mom’s words of caution ,against it ,he got me a big bundle of books. They still tell me that ,the minute I saw the handsome bundle I very enthusiastically took each of those books and drew colorful circles all over them and once I was satisfied with my art ,I tore them in to non symmetrical pieces and spread them all around me ,so that all could see and praise my art.. Dad has saved those pieces to remind me of my first tryst with books 🙂


I absolutely love reading.No matter what’s the theme. When my friends started reading Nancy Drew and Hardy boys, I was already on my way to the Jane Austen section. The love for books was so much that I asked for books as birthday gifts rather then anything else.


Here I would like to discuss the books that I have read over the years ,along with the ones I have picked up recently .My little cousin loves books as much as I do and it was her idea that made me start this blog.She has also asked me to put up a list of books, which I feel ,she and her friends would like to read or should read.


So dearest Anu this blog is dedicated to you sweety:)
