Top 10 Tuesday-- books that made you cry

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish
This weeks top ten is Top Ten Books That Made Me Cry. Okay, this list shouldn't be all that hard, I'm a sap and I cry while I read most books. This list WILL have SPOILERS in it. It'd be hard to explain why I cried during a book if I didn't say spoilers. Just a warning.

1. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by JK Rowling:
While I did get teary eyed in both the 4th and 5th Harry Potter books, I bawled my eyes out when Dumbledore died in the 6th one. I was wearing a white tshirt while reading this and I stained it with my tears. Yeah, that's how much I was crying.

2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling:
 Okay, I was crying during half of this book! So many good people die. First it was Dobby, which I still can't get over. Then you have Tonks and Lupin, then Fred. AND THEN HARRY!! WTF??? It was like JK was torturing me during all those scenes. I had to stop reading cause my eyes wouldn't stop leaking and I couldn't see anything. It took me over 30 minutes to get over my crying so I could continue.

3.The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons:
This ending could give Deathly Hallows a run for it's money on how much I cried while reading it. I cried for about 30 minutes after finishing it. My dad had to cheer me up. Then I found out there were two more books in the series and I felt much much much better.

4.Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold:
Just read the plot of the book to know why I cried while reading it. The main girl is murdered and she's watching over her family. Very depressing stuff.

5.Blood Promise by Richelle Mead:
Rose goes to Russia so she can kill the love of her life, but first she has to live with his family for a while. Ack! And his funeral! Reading about such a strong character like Rose cry and lose control is so depressing.

6.Black Magic Sanction by Kim Harrison:
We all saw it coming, but didn't want it to happen. Maddie dies. Poor poor Jenks.

7.At Grave's End by Jeaniene Frost:
Okay I honestly can't remember if the part I'm thinking of happened in this book or the second one because it's been two years since I've read it. When Cat thinks Bones is dead and how she was tempted to throw herself off the cliff because she was so sad. Once again it's seeing a incredibly strong heroine fall that is so depressing.

8.I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder:
This book had me crying by page two. If you've ever been to a funeral, you really understand what Ava is going through in this book. I cried during most of the book actually.

9.Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins:
This one took me a while to actually cry because I was in shock, but it set in. The whole freaking last half of the book. All the deaths. Ugh.

10. Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls:
If you don't cry while reading the ending of this book, you are cold and heartless. That's pretty much how this one goes.

OMG! I can't believe I forgot to put The Art of Racing in the Rain and Marley and Me on the list!!!!! So I have 12 fantastic books that made me cry on the list.
Those were the ones that I could think of off the top of my head. The Forest Of Hands and Teeth also made me cry but that book didn't get put on my list because I hated it. Only books I liked made it on my list.


  1. Where the Red Fern Grows is one of my most favorites! I sob every single time I read that book! Cold and heartless... Hahaha!

  2. I don't think I could ever read that book more than once. I cried too hard. That's a book that will always stick with me.

  3. Ah, The Lovely Bones! That would have been an honorable mention. I keep seeing books I missed on others lists!

  4. I cried like a baby while reading Where the Red Fern Grows too. Such a sweet book :)

  5. Great list! I was teary in HP #6 and 7 for sure. I'm waiting until the last VA book comes out so I can start the series!

  6. Mockingjay made be cry too. I still can't believe all that happened.

  7. Oh my, you love to cry :-) I think that is sweet, lol

  8. Marley and Me is the worst especially if you have had a pet die. You pretty much re-live that pet's death. And John Grogan drags out Marley's death for so long.


I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
