This week's question:

What books have recently made you cry?

My Answer:
The last book that I can remember really crying from, we aren’t talking my eye’s getting a bit watery but tears down my face crying was:

Great Hexpectations (Dulcie O'Neil #3) – H.P. Mallory

Great Hexpectations (Dulcie O'Neil, #3)
Dulcie and Knight were locked up in jail, Knight awaiting his death sentence. The way these two were together on their last night together really had me going. Tears streaming down my face and everything.

The most recent teary eyed book was:

Once Burned (Night Prince #1) – Jeaniene Frost

Once Burned (Night Prince, #1)
The part when Leila was being held captive and tortured, her strength and fortitude brought a tear to the eye. No actual tears fell but there was definite misting. LOL

A book that will always bring a tear to the eye is:

Lover Awakened (Black Dagger Brotherhood #3)

Lover Awakened (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #3)

You can’t read this book and not be touched, it is one of the best of the series if not the best. Zsadist, having endured so much the first 100 years of his life. Held as a blood slave (and that’s not the worst of it), he struggles against his past and his future with Bella.

It takes a lot to bring a tear to my eye, so when an author manages to move me to the point of tears it’s a great feat!

    1. We tend to like the same books, so you will still love it! Dont worry she's strong and can handle herself!

  2. OMG-- and I call myself a die-hard BDB fan. I should be drawn and quartered for forgetting Z's book. Damn, but I was thinking recent books,and it's been awhile since I read that one. Z and V were HUGE tear jerkers for me that had me SOBBING ALOUD.
    Great pics.
    Thanks for the follow--following back.

  3. Aaahhh. Looks like I'm in for lots of tears this weekend. The one I'm reading now was on someone elses list and Once Burned is my next read. And I'm a crier so will probably be a mess. Can't wait though :) And Zsadist. Tears every single time. That's my favorite of the series.

  4. You'll love Once Burned! Leila is a strong heroine. A good tear jerker is good every now and then, so enjoy your reading this weekend!

  5. I am almost postive I have cried on all the BDB books at least a tear or 2 the one I believe I cried the most in was Lover Unleashed ,,wont' say why incase you havne't read yet *grins*
    and I am very very anxious to get into Jeannie Frosts New Book, I always adored Vlad,
