I was just minding my own business, reading through my Twitter feed when I saw Kat of Katytastic tweet about Goodreads finally adding the reread function to their website. Naturally, I got super excited! How long have we been asking and hoping for this? Ages it feels like!
I head over to Goodreads, read their update that explains how this function works and how you can manually mark a book you’ve read multiple times as a reread. Great, I think! Let’s head over and mark some books as reread!
So I start by marking the first three books in The Mortal Instruments and then I head over to The Infernal Devices. This was my first mistake. But things hadn’t escalated quite yet. I click on Clockwork Princess and skim my reading updates to determine when I first read the book – this is my second mistake.
My third mistake? Actually reading the status updates, of course! This trilogy is so near and dear to my heart and I love these characters with everything I have. I cried both times I read this book. And not the cute kind of crying. Oh no! I had waterfalls running down my face! And no matter how many times I think ‘Okay. I’m good. I have dealt with the events of this trilogy!’ something happens that throws me for a loop and I end up sitting in bed, crying at 4AM because of FEELS. So, so, so many feels.
So there you have it, this is how I ended up crying because Goodreads added the reread function. Now that is a sentence I never saw myself write!
What is a story that has had you crying ugly tears? Do you get to a point of crying while reading? Let me know! Talking about our feelings is supposed to be a good thing, right?
