Today, Maureen is asking what our favorite book that made us cry is. I’m skipping the question. I don’t enjoy crying at books – or movies, or commercials, or tv shows. I’m a bit of a sap and cry way too easily at fiction. I actually avoid books that I know are going to make me cry, which I know means I miss out on a lot of excellent ones, but I’m okay with that. Of course, often enough a book catches me off-guard, leaving me in tears. Really annoys me. I will say the book that most recently made me cry was The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers. The crew of the Wayfarer had to do a hard reset of their AI and she reverted to factory default, losing all her personality and memories. Yep, I cried over a computer system.
