Yes, many times. A good book makes you laugh, gasp and cry, all at the same time.
I’ve cried in The Hunger Games when Rue dies. The song, especially, brought me to tears. I was sobbing all over the pages. It’s just so sad- Rue is totally innocent and young and she doesn’t deserve to die. It’s always a shock, too, even if you know it’s going to happen.
And also in The Host, when Wanda is talking about giving up her life to save Melanie. All those goodbyes… every time you know she’s doing something for the last time… it’s heartbreaking, honestly. I cried all the way through the last ten chapters.
If a book makes you cry, it’s an amazing book. The book I laughed the most in was Eldest, when Saphina got hiccups. That might not sound hilarious to you, but I remember putting the book down on my lap and laughing for five minuites straight. I picked it up again, read one line, and burst out with another fit of giggles. I couldn’t help it!
