Bookish Rants and Rambles is basically where I either rant or ramble about something dealing with books.
I think all of us can relate to this. All of us have read a book that left us in tears, but is this a bad thing? Tearjerkers sometimes get a bad rep and I know many book nerds that just will no read the. Why? Yes, crying isn't fun, but in my experience the books that make you cry are the ones that can be the most brilliant.
Sounds crazy, right? But stick with me here. If a book makes you cry, that means that you care. You care about the characters, the story, the book in general. It's a mark of a great writer when they can make the story feel so real that you feel all the feels. That even after you finish the book, you finish the book, you still think about it.
Still don't believe me? Well, I've read many books that made me feel the feels and I've given almost all of them high ratings. The only one that got a low rating was Allegiant, but I still count it since I cared about the characters in the previous book (still cared in the last one, but the story sucked). A whole lot of them are now some of my all-time favorites.
That doesn't mean that books that don't make you cry aren't good, there are plenty of amazing books out there, but most of them at least make you feel and they impact you in some way. Also, you don't have to cry tears of sadness! I've read many books that just read me cry just by how beautiful they were, such as Wonder.
I think where I am going with this is that you don't have to be afraid of the tears!
