It’s Top 10 Tuesday (hosted at The Broke and the Bookish) and the topic is:
Top Ten Worlds Books That Made Me Cry
Yeah, so this is awkward. I have a thing about books that make you cry. I kind of seek them out. Why? I don’t know. I like to torment myself, I suppose. When I went to make this post, I counted 48 books in my Goodreads that could be on this post. And that was grouping series as one book. So, obviously I have issues. And this post was incredible difficult to choose just ten.
Top Ten Books That Made Me Cry
Here’s ten that most profoundly affected me.
1. Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
Sure, there were a lot of moments to cry in this series, but that last sentence put me in a book coma for weeks. There were no more words to the story. It was finished.
2. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
You don’t pick up this book without knowing what you are getting in to — a girl in between life and death. Should she stay and face the pain or go and die in peace.
3. Night by Elie Wiesel
I read this book over 15 years ago and it affected in me in such a way that I will never forget its impact.
4. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
I don’t think this needs any explaining.
5. Never Let Me Go
Possibly one of the most under the radar books I’ve ever read. While the movie is touching, it doesn’t hold a candle to the book. If you like science fiction and the implications of genetics, the meaning of humanity, and our future with those things, this book is a must-read.
6. Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock
This book just tore my heart up from the first page. A gripping look inside the mind of a boy who plans to kill a classmate and himself.
Travis Thrasher, you really ripped my heart out with this book. The book is creepy, intense, and isn’t afraid to GO THERE.
Too many things happened in this book to name them all, but there were many, many tears.
9. With All My Soul
The end to the Soul Screamers series broke my heart and I am still not over it a year later. It was a brave, bold choice and I applaud Rachel Vincent for every minute of it.
I don’t want to talk about it.
So, that’s it. What are some book have you ugly cried over?
