Day 13 – A Book That Made You Sad

I love a sad book, especially the kind that has you sobbing uncontrollably while you read through your tears. I’ve read a few good ones like that.

However, despite the parties and the lush life, he is a very lonely man in a crowded room. He is very misunderstood but eventually, someone sees him for who he is. Nick sees Gatsby for the real man that lies beneath the facade, but by then it is too late. (My first ever tattoo, which was of course book related was from The Great Gatsby and I love it).
