Best of 2018: The Emoji Files, Part II – Got Me in the Feels

Welcome to the second post in my “Best of 2018” series—a series I’ve dubbed The Emoji Files, since I’ve grouped my favourite reads according to their emotional impact.

The first post in my Emoji Files series was The Swoony Awards, so if you missed that, make sure you check it out here. But today, I’m going to be giving you the books that got me in the feels. These are the books that made me cry or really pulled me into the characters’ struggles—often both! Abuse, loss, marital strain, and infidelity are issues for some characters, while others are contending with the unique challenges and sacrifices associated with war time. In all cases, you’re guaranteed a read that will engage the emotions.

NOTE: Some tissues may be harmed during the reading of these novels.
