Meme from Rebecca :), head out to Lost in Books for the details.

This Week's Topic is:

3 Books I Read When I Need a Good Cry:
in no particular order

1. What Dreams May Come by Richard Matheson - it is a beautifully sad story.

2. The Dawns Here Are Quiet... by Boris Vasilyev - It is a Russian book. I could not find the link to the book translated to English (if it ever was), but I found a link to the movie that was based on it. The book is set in Russia, in 1941, during WWII. It tells the story about Sergeant Vaskov and five young women on military training. One day they discover a group of Nazi paratroopers trying to pass unnoticed beyond the front-line, deeper into Russian territory. Sergeant knows that there would be no reinforcement for them and the only ones that he can relay on are those girls barely off the high school. So they must stop Nazi paratroopers themselves, no matter what...because the freedom of their country depends on them...

3. Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare - yes, I cry every time i read it.

"For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Juliet and her Romeo."
