Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Made Me Cry

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly event hosted at The Broke and the Bookish.
This weeks topic: Top Ten Books That Made Me Cry
This week we were able to pick whatever past topic wanted to post, and I chose this one. I tend to be quite a sappy person (more often than not), so it's not all that difficult for a book to make me cry. So here we go:

1. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

I cried off and on, pretty much throughout this whole book. And once I finished it I just sat there and literally bawled my eyes out for about a half an hour straight. This book = amazing, one of the absolute best I've read.

2. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

I just had to list the whole series (yes I know I've mentioned it two weeks in a row lol), because there was more than one book in it that made me cry. I won't say exactly who because of spoilers but a few of my absolute favorite characters were killed off and it just killed me. Plus a few other sad parts.

3. The Book Thief  by Markus Zusak

This is one of the most brilliantly written books I've read, and it's one I'll never forget and will continue to re-read. Definitely a tear jerker.

4. Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff

This is one of my favorite books of 2012 so far, it was epicly amazing! And there were definitely parts of this one the made me reach for the tissues with haste. If you haven't read this, you must!

5. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

Books like this always make me cry no questions asked, but this one was especially emotional for me. Just trying to imagine even a fractionof hat it was like for all of these people was almost more than I could stand. I cried throughout the whole thing, but it was a great book.

6. Marley and Me by John Grogan

This book.. Just had me one big mess by the end. Especially since I'm such a dog lover.

7. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See

Oh dear goodness, this book had me completely beside myself with emotion. I cried continuously while I read it and it was actually a bit depressing. But it was such a beautifully written story I couldn't put it down.

8. Saving June by Hannah Harrington

This book dealt with such a sad topic, it's one thing to lose someoneyou love but to lose them to suicide is a whole defferent thing. It was hard to read about but it was still a good story, and I just couldn't help the tears.

9. The Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness

This is one of my all time favorite series the story is sooooo good! And just FYI, if you read this you will cry. No question about it.

10. Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson

I just can't even begin to describe how much this book affected me. I so did not see what happened coming, and I just lost it. It was just as bad when I watched the movie. Sheesh.

Happr reading lovelies!


  1. I've been avoiding The Fault in Our Stars for this exact reason - I know it's going to make me bawl! Excellent list :-)

  2. I always say that I don't want to read books that make me cry. But I've read so many of the books on your list and I realize that I love them so much more because of the connection that actually made me feel something.

  3. YES on the Book Thief. Yes. *sobs* If you want to cry more, try Rilla of Ingleside and Code Name Verity.

  4. Omfg all you need on this list is The Fault In Our Stores. I haven't read all the books on your list, but the ones I have are like a trickle of tears compared to the river that was TFiOS. It's like a million sad movies, a hundred break-up songs and three dead puppies worth of sad. :'(
