Top Ten Tuesday – Books That Will Make You Cry

 Top Ten Books That Will Make You Cry

This is possibly one of the easiest topics I’ve done, mainly because I’ve been crying a lot more in books recently. I’m not sure if that’s actually a good thing, but here’s my list.

Veronica Roth - Allegiant

1. Allegiant (Divergent #3) by Veronica Roth

If you’ve read the book, you’ll know exactly why it’s on this list. I was reading this in school, and I was pretty much crying in front of everyone when I read it.

The Fall of Five

2. The Fall of Five (Lorien Legacies #4) by Pittacus Lore

I didn’t cry so much in this one, but that ending was still heartbreaking. How was I meant to cope after reading it?

Rick Riordan - The Mark of Athena

3. The Mark of Athena (The Heroes of Olympus #3) by Rick Riordan

That ending! It was such a cliffhanger and I cried a lot and I couldn’t believe that I’d have to wait a year to find out what would happen.

J K Rowling - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

4. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter #7) by J. K. Rowling

There’s no way I could leave this book off the list. The amount of times I cried in this book was ridiculous, and yet I still want to reread it.

Cassandra Clare - Clockwork Princess

5. Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices #3) by Cassandra Clare

Yet another book I read in school, which turned out to be a bad idea. None of my friends were anywhere near the ending when I finished this book, and I was just crying and they had no idea what was going on.

Audrey Niffenegger - The Time Traveller's Wife

6. The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

It was just so sad.

Cecelia Ahern - P S I Love You

7. PS, I Love You by Cecelia Ahern

I hadn’t (and still haven’t) seen the film when I read this book so I was definitely not prepared for what was to come. I cried and cried whilst reading this, and because of it I’m never going to watch the film.

John Green - The Fault in Our Stars

8. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Yet another book I couldn’t leave off this list. I’m currently rereading it, but I’ve sort of stopped because I’m getting to the part where I started crying last time, and last time I didn’t stop crying until the end of the book.

Rainbow Rowell - Eleanor & Park

9. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

There was a bit of crying involved in this book too, especially at the end.

Stephen Chbosky - The Perks of Being a Wallflower

10. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

This book just made me really sad. I don’t really remember where I cried in it, but I definitely did.

That’s my list, but which books are guaranteed to make you cry?

  1. I’m so happy to see Time Traveler’s Wife on so many lists this week – for once I feel like my picks are in line with other people’s 🙂 I also had Harry Potter – but then, who didn’t?! If J.K. Rowling had a dollar for every tear her readers shed she’d be a…oh, wait…never mind. 🙂
