7 books that will break your heart

I love books that make me cry – not because I like crying but because if an author can write in such a way that their words bring me to tears then in my eyes, they’re extremely talented. Books can throw you into a whirlwind of emotions – they can make you laugh, they can make you smile, they can make you feel motivated and inspired and they can make you cry. If you plan on reading even one of these books, then grab a box of tissues – you’re gonna need them!
