#FaeFriday – Hurts So Good

Happy Friday Bibliofriends,

What a week this has been, in various ways of good and bad! Work has been hellish but book mail has thankfully saved the day as my Fairyloot September box AND my Fairyloot Daevabad set both arrived this week! They are all so so gorgeous and I cannot wait to dive into those reads!

Speaking of fairies… Happy Fae Friday!

Fae Friday is a weekly blog prompt hosted by the wonderful Kristy at Caffeinated Fae. It seems like the perfect way to spread a little more magic across the blogosphere every week.

Here are the rules:

  • Link back to this page on Caffeinated Fae.
  • If the prompt idea is from another blog, link to that blog as well.
  • Use #FaeFriday when posting to social media so we can all find each other! 
  • Participate when you can & have fun with the prompt!

October 2nd prompt:

Autumn is in the air, and the autumn court is in the spotlight. The autumn court is full of strange and beautiful faes who can have a slight sadistic side. This week’s prompt is dedicated to those sadists, which is why this curious wannabe fae wants to know: 

What are some of your go-to authors that make it hurt so good?

So from my first reading of the prompt I’m immediately having flashbacks to reading Fifty Shades of Grey…! Purely because of the wording within the prompt and not my dirty voyeuristic mind!!! 😂🙈😂

Moving on – I tend to cry at lots of different things in books so there isn’t really a set ‘go-to’ author that I’d pick-up when I need a good cry, however… Sarah J Maas‘ books should totally come with a free box of Kleenex or something! The amount of times she’s had me in tears… but I just absolutely love her, there’s not a single thing she’s written that I don’t want to read.

The only other thing I can really think of that I would go to for a good cry is Fanfiction. There is a particular ‘ship’ in the HP fan fiction community (it’s secretly my one true pairing and ultimate guilty pleasure) that never fails to send me sobbing but it so worth the pain just to read those stories. You can guarantee if it’s a sad ending then I’ll be sobbing! 😂

Do you cry a lot at books or stories? Which authors make all that sobbing worth the pain? Feel free to leave me links to your own Fae Friday and I’ll check them out!

Enjoy your weekend Bibliofriends!

  1. Great post! I’ve always wanted to read Sarah J Maas, and now I am more excited! There’s something so valuable about a book that makes you cry. 😊

  2. Great post! I’m a pretty emotional person and so it doesn’t take much for me to cry during a read, especially when I’m feeling emotional IRL. But it definitely helps if the characters worm their way into my heart and I care deeply for them. The happy moments get me swooning but if anything bad happens to my favourites I’m guaranteed to bawl 😂 Taylor Jenkins Reid is good at doing this and so is Kristin Hannah! Lol

    • That is exactly it! I haven’t read either of those but I’ll definitely be heading in their direction then if I need a good cry! I felt like that over The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, I even cried when I wrote my review of it! 😂🙈🙄
