TGIF at GReads is a fun feature for answering a book-blogging question posed by Ginger.
This week the question is: Book Olympics: In the spirit of the Olympics, which books would you give the gold, silver, and bronze medals to? It can be from any genre, new or old.
Today’s Category: Tearjerkers
The Bronze goes to:
Okay for Now by Gary D. Schmidt– For making me cry, then laugh, all while driving, making me look like a crazy lady.
The Silver goes to:
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness– One word: Manchee.
The Gold goes to:
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green– Pretty sure I woke up the day after finishing this with a crying hangover. You know, puffy eyes and a slight headache. Many tears were shed.
What are your picks for the Book Olympics? Alternately, what is your favorite Olympic sport to watch? (I’ll admit that I am crazy-in-love with synchronized diving, beach volleyball, and, of course, gymnastics.)
