For me it was Harry Potter 6. I worked the midnight release, came home and read until I had to stop and sob for awhile (you all know why and if you’ve somehow made it this far without being spoiled you deserve to stay that way). For Marcia it was the Time Traveller’s Wife. Other notable works include We Were Liars and Gone Girl (which didn’t wake Brandon up with tears but with screams of (“what the effing aich”).
So - what was the first/most recent/most memorable book that made you wake someone up with emotion? And has California done it to you yet?
It’s true, Matt and I were on our honeymoon in Paris and he woke up at 2am to the sound of my ridiculous sobbing over The Time Traveller’s Wife. That might have been the moment when he realized he’d married a crazy woman.
