Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Will Make You Cry

I've decided to jump on board with Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week the topic is: books that will make you cry.


Hm, I don't know that I read an awful lot of books that make me cry! Not that I avoid them, but this might be a toughie for me. 

1. P.S. I Love You by Cecelia Ahern - so much better than the movie! I adored this book and definitely cried more than once!

2. Nowhere But Home by Liza Palmer - one thing I love about Palmer's work is that she manages to keep her books rather lighthearted in spite of tough subject matter. This was no exception but I did likely tear up a little while reading.

3. Forgotten by Catherine McKenzie - oh, yes. This one did make me cry. Like Palmer, though, McKenzie does keep it pretty light throughout all of her books. She's a definite favorite of mine.

4. The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker - I cried when this book ended. I did. I admit it.

5. What You Wish For by Kerry Reichs - and yes, another lighter read but I loved the characters and their stories. This one is a bit of a heart wrenching subject even for a Grinch like me (when it comes to kids).

6. Prey by Rachel Vincent - at least I think this is the one. The one where Rachel Vincent ripped my heart out and killed one of my favorite characters!

7. The entire Harry Potter series - so many characters die in this series I can't even pick one for the list. Yeah, many of the installments made me an ugly mess.

That's it. That's all I've got. I'm sure there were others - in fact I know they are. Freaking Hallmark commercial can make me weep! I apparently just don't admit it in my reviews and wipe it from my memory after finishing a book!

Now I'm afraid of starting that series by Rachel Vincent :D
She already makes me feel all the feels with her Soul Screamers but killing a favorite character? Not sure when I'm gonna start this one :D

The entire HP series made me cry too, especially the last book. So many characters died, including Snape. :(

Yeah Harry Potter oh and Lord of the Rings books made me cry. I can't remember right off hand what else made me cry.

I cry at EVERYTHING (yep, a Hallmark commercial could totally do it), yet somehow it was harder than I thought it would be to remember which books made me cry. Still, I managed to come up with ten. Thanks for visiting my TTT!
