Why Goodreads’ reread function made me cry

why goodreads made me cryI 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?

  1. The Infernal Devices is my favourite series ever! Have you listened to the audiobook versions? I’ve only listened to the Clockwork Princess audiobook but it was brilliant 🙂

    1. I actually haven’t listened to it yet! I can’t seem to focus on audiobooks? I am currently about a third of the way through Aristotle And Dante and I feel like I remember nothing about what I heard? Or maybe listening to a story I already know would be a better option to judge if I enjoy this format or not! I will have to try it. 🙂

      1. I started audiobooks by reading the novel first, I think Clockwork Princess was one of my first audiobooks 🙂 it’s very long though, I think like 11 hours long or something
