  1. That’s a good question. On the lighter side, I loved all of the Rainbow Rowell books I read towards the end of the year – but earlier in the year, Me Before You by JoJo Moyes and The Fault In Our Stars by John Green probably stuck with me the most – although both made me cry. A lot.

      1. Me too! They’re my favorite, actually. But most people think that’s weird when I say that, haha. If I come across any really good tearjerkers, I’ll let you know! (And likewise let me know if you find one!)
