If you are looking for a book to read and possibly a good cry, then I recommend picking up John Green's "The Fault in Our Stars."
I had been warned that the story was sad, but I was surprised with how much & how quickly I got attached to the characters (Hazel & Augustus). There is just something kind of profound about their story, but I don't want to go into too much detail-I'd probably end up giving something away! So if you haven't already read it, go get a copy today!
One of my favorite quotes:
"For some reason I decided to feel really hopeful...I felt that feeling of excitement & gratitude about just being able to marvel at it all."
