Same as me with 'Through The Looking Glass' but I did last look at it when I was 8 so I might give it another try. 

I read TFIOS about in mid 2012 (before it was mainstream *cough-hipster-ASJ-cough*) haven't picked it up since. It didn't do that much for me, I predicted the ending about a 1/4 way through. I'm not a very sad-romance genre person anyways and no I didn't cry at the end :P

Actually I'm trying to remember if any book has ever made me cry or am I just Miss Stoneheart. A couple of biographies have made me cry and the ending of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (it still makes me cry <.<     >.>     <.< ) . That's about it though :/ 

One of my best friends read it back then too, and she kept going on about it, which annoyed me. I was very much into that kind of books back then, but never read The fault in our stars. I did read Before I die though, which was very sad as well, especially the ending, which was very well written. That has been made into a movie as well, called Now is good, which is a nonsense title and makes me wonder why they couldn't just use the original title. I usually cry when someone dies. I remember reading a book about a kid who had cancer when I was 12, and it was based on a true story. I was upset over that book for weeks.

I can't remember if Harry Potter made me cry. It probably did. I actually wanted to start reading them again, but I couldn't find the first book!

After what seemed like 8 years, 14 months, 45 days, 28 hours and 79 minutes i've finally finished 'Revolver: why its better than Pepper' (aka 'Revolver: How The Beatles Re-Imagined Rock 'N' Roll'). A very good book it was too.

Have moved on to 'George Harrison: Behind The Locked Door' which is better if not superior to it going by what i've read so far, estimated time of completion is before Paul releases the next in his archive series, nice to give yourself a good few years to finish a book.
