message 10: by Corinltm123 (new)

Corinltm123 Gosh people. I have read depresing books before, but they just made me cry. Do you ever get happy crying over a book? I cried over that last Maximum ride book (Never More)at the end where max said she died. but then i cried cause she was alive. Reading those books for the first time really sparked some emotion throught the book. I swear I had serious mood swings.


message 11: by Raul (new)

Raul Surprised Farewell to Arms and As I lay Dying are not here.


message 12: by Jon (new)

Jon Hammerlund Barry Lyndon and Pere Goriot are not on the list. The nun who who taught my Lit class made us read both of them.
