Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the awesome ladies at The Broke and the Bookish.  Apparently, they are overly fond of list-making and love to share their bookish lists with the rest of us book nerds.  =)  We're game.







This week's list features the Top Ten Books That Will Make You Cry:

April's picks:

mockingjayMe Since YouCovetLosing HopeForbidden

I'm not much of a crier when it comes books. That's not to say I won't get misty eyed here and there, but it takes a lot to make me full out cry. Mockingjay made me bawl like a baby. My husband thought I was crazy. Me Since You is so sad, I couldn't help but shed a tear. Oh and Covet, that's a special one. I connected with it deeply on a personal level. I had a good cry over that one. Losing Hope had me crying a few percent in. It's a companion to Hopeless, and Hopeless made me cry too, but when you start Losing Hope, you already know what happened and some how that made it even harder. Forbidden, that book just broke my heart.

Jen's picks:

The Fault in Our StarsHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7)The Sky Is EverywhereThe Sea of TranquilityThe Amber Spyglass (His Dark Materials, #3)

Dude, I even shed some tears just watching the trailer for TFiOS, remembering the book, and yeah, I'll be a blubbering mess when I see the full movie.  I'll probably even listen to the audio again.  I am a glutton for punishment.  And I cried like a wittle bitty baby when I thought Harry was dead.  And then I punched the book for making me think he was dead, and then I cried some more 'cause that really hurt.  :P  If you haven't read The Sky is Everywhere yet, do it!  You won't regret it.  Bat. Bat. Bat.  ;0)  That everything coming full circle thing at the end of TSoT floored me...completely opened up the waterworks.  I don't regret it for a moment.  And then there's the ending to Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy.  You don't have a heart if that didn't at least make your eyes well up a little.


So, which books made you cry?  Were they tears of joy or sadness?  :)  Share the link to you TTT post so we can visit!

  1. Forbidden and Me Since You were so emotional for me. Forbidden broke my heart, and the way that grief was portrayed in Me Since You was so realistic and intense.

    I'm not normally a book crier but both of those hit me right in the feels!

  2. Can't wait to read Me Since You!!! It sounds great! I don't think I can do Forbidden. That topic scares me a little. And The Sky is Everywhere totally made my list! Holy freaking sad and beautiful!!!

    1. That topic scared me as well, but I'm glad I overlooked it and read the book. I'm all about no incest. Yuck.. I have a brother and the thought makes me want to vom. But... in Forbidden, the Author makes you want them to be together, even though it's wrong. It was a really great book. :)

  9. I don't do a lot of crying while reading either, but I still love heartbreaking books - and there are some great ones on this list. The Fault in Our Stars is a given, and Harry Potter 7 is pretty upsetting too. Mockingjay made me more angry than sad, but it did have plenty of feels as well.

    Thanks for stopping by my Top Ten Tuesday!

  10. Oops, my comment just got lost... I can't believe I didn't think about His Dark Materials -- so heartbreaking! I loved The Sea of Tranquility as well. I think I must have cried during every Harry Potter book from #4 onward (#5 especially broke my heart). Great list!

  11. Hmmm I've seen a couple different people now say that Me Since You was a crying book. I'm planning on reading that this month, so I'll definitely have to remember to keep the tissues nearby!

  12. Great picks! I am so happy to see Forbidden on so many other lists this week, that book absolutely broke me but I absolutely love it. I've got The Sky Is Everywhere on my list, such a beautiful book. I also picked Deathly Hallows, I pretty much cry from beginning to end. My TTT :)

  13. Thanks for stopping by my TTT earlier! Definitely Losing Hope and The Sea of Tranquility. LOVED both of those books! I haven't read Forbidden but I've heard great things about it!

  14. I've had The Fault in our Stars for ages and keep putting off reading it...I think I'm trying to prepare myself for what is sure to be an emotional read!

  15. Forbidden just tore my heart out without remorse! I was not expecting that ending. :( I watched the trailer for TFIOS and I was crying when he was proclaiming his love for Hazel Grace. I just couldn't. If that was the trailer I can't imagine how the movie is going to treat me!
    I haven't read any of the other books, but I either own them, or they're on my to-read list. Thanks for pointing them out!

  16. I agree 100% with Mockingjay. I think everyone who read it cried at least half of the time, there are just so many sad scenes in it. I read Hopeless, but not Losing Hope yet. I want to get to it soon, since I heard it's just as good, if not better then Hopeless.

  19. Mockingjay & Covet <3 I may have cried more during Mockingjay but Covet was really emotional on a deep level.

    TFIOS made me cry A LOT in the end and The Sky is Everywhere made me cry throughout, just little tears though. :)

    Great lists, ladies!

  20. I feel so bad at not having cried while reading The Fault in Our Stars! If it makes up for it, I did almost cry at the trailer. What can I say, I probably need visuals to be able to get emotional with a story! And yes, to Harry Potter. I did cry with that book!

  21. I wish we could see TFiOS together, Jen, so we could be blubbering messes together! I haven't read Harry Potter, but I'm really intrigued at that you cried in that one. Both of you did great picks!
