#FaeFriday | Hurts so good

Happy Friday!!! I don’t know about you but this week seemed to drag on forever! Anyways, it’s Friday, and that means it’s time for another #FaeFriday! 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?

I have to admit when I wrote this prompt, I knew I would struggle to come up with an answer to this. You see, this prompt can be taken in so many different ways, which is why I love it so much. It’s always a blast to see how other people interpret a prompt. So, I’m going to go with the obvious one for me, authors that seem to be a go-to when I need a cathartic cry.

The top of that list includes Colleen Hoover, Samantha Young, and Juliet Marillier. The emotions that these three authors are able to pull out of me are so intense I fear they’re witches. For me to cry over a book, I have to love the characters enough to cry for/with them, which takes a lot. So, when I’m in the mood for that cathartic release, I pick up one of their books.

Honorable mention goes to The Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa for being the book that made me cry the most. Truly an amazing book but also not one you should read a few months after the death of a loved one.

So now that you know my answer, what are some of your go-to authors that make it hurt so good?

  1. Ooh, good topic! I think the only books I’ve revisited knowing how bittersweet they were going to be are Seal Child, by Sylvia Peck, and The Clan of the Cave Bear. They don’t make me cry out loud, exactly, but The Clan’s ending is pretty heart-wrenching. Oh, but then there’s The Song of the Sea…I’ll count it even though it’s a movie because the eponymous Song scene does make me literally cry every time.

  2. I’m having computer problems and didn’t get a chance to do the prompt this week but I love this one! I would have gone with the same interpretation and chosen India R Adams because omg the feels! I’ll have to look into the authors you mentioned
