Top 10 Books That Will Make You Cry

The topic for this week's Top Ten Tuesday at The Broke and the Bookish is the top books that made you cry. I sort of pride myself on the fact that I'm not a very weepy person and it takes a big emotional punch to cause the dam to break and the tears to flow, but I was able to muster up a few stories that made me run for the tissues.

Books That Made Me Cry:

Tearjerker On My TBR List:
A few years ago when we were living in Hawaii, I went next door to borrow something for some cupcakes I was making and my neighbor answered the door with tears pouring down her face. Why? Because she was reading this Holocaust novel.
Book-Based Movies I've Seen Recently That Brought On The Tears:
"Lone Survivor" is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time, but beware: it can be a bit tough to watch, particularly if -- like me -- you have a military spouse or family member who has deployed to Afghanistan or Iraq.

I so thought this was going to have a happy ending. Nope. It's horrific.


  1. I was going to add The Art of Racing in the Rain to my list, but it has been a while since I read it.

    Great list!! Here is my TTT:

  2. We share Me Before You and Sarah's Key. They're both such emotional reads!

  3. ah yes, The Time Traveler's Wife is my #1 this week. I basically sobbed over that book. And HP made my list too! All of those freakin books made me cry! Great list! :)
