    My Sister's Keeper And Bridge To Terebithia

    Oh my gosh I loved these books. They were so sad, but amazing. I just finished My Sister's Keeper. I loved it, even if it was a little inappropriate at times (well, it IS an adult's book, after all). Bridge to Terebithia I had read when I was eight, and I was surprised that a...

    Anything By Mitch Albom

    Whether it be "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" or "One More Day", I tear up and cry during Albom's books all the time. Love him as a writer because he gets down to the things that matter to people.

    Night Road By Kristin Hannah

    One of the best book i've ever read. It's very emotional and loving. When I've finished this book, I couldn't stop crying. Kristin Hannah is a amazing writer.

    Oh dear god, that book made me bawl. Twice. First when the little girl died. I'd already seen the movie, knew it was coming. But it was still heart wrenching. And then when her friend asked his dad if she'd gone to Heaven or Hell and his response was so beautiful...Damn that...

    I read a book called Grace, by Richard Paul Evans. It was an AMAZING book that just left me in tears at the end. Same way with Bridge to Terabythia. I cried so hard at the end of that.

     Okay... don't laugh at me. Most Stephen King books make me cry. I get attached to the characters and then something horrible happens. :( I know it's retarded. But, like, Pet Sematary.... how is that *not* sad?? The poor little boy dies, the dad dies, the neighbors die...

    Summer Sisters written by Judy Blume.

    It is truly a work of art and displays the progression of a childhood friendship wonderfully. I can read this book over and over again and never become bored.

    The Cage By Ruth Minsky Sender

    I will not tell too much about this book except a few things. 1. If you get this book, do NOT read the preview. It gives away the story. 2. This is a WWII book. 3. It is filled with emotion, I got attached to the characters, and I'm sure anyone who reads it will too.

    that have ever made me cry. "Where the Red Fern Grows" was the first. I read it in seventh grade. The second was Dobby's death in the 7th Harry Potter book. And this last one made me cry over and over again throughout the book. (10-15 times, at least) It was called "The...

    I finished the last two chapters of The Book

    Thief last night. It is safe to say I cried like a little girl who just loved everyone and everything she ever loved. Besides that it is a beautiful story, and if anything I feel quite inspired after reading it.

    Screaming For A Vine

    [by voilet williamson] this book was so sad and it has a unhappy ending too,and I guess the reason why it made me cry was because the girl in the book kind of reminded me of me,and when the girl died at the end it was kinda like I died too

    The Recent Stuff

    Most recently the Phantom of the Opera. Some that stick out from the past are Burned by Ellen Hopkins and This is All by Aidan Chambers. I think I was near sobbing during those books.

    Are just the most recent. There are tons more that have made me cry. It should be noted that the movie version of "the Lovely Bones" is terrible and does the book no justice at all.

    "Guitar Notes" by Mary Amato is short,

    but it had enough relatable content to make you feel for the characters and cry a little. Pretty similar to "The Fault in Our Stars," with humor and a suspenseful sad incident at the end.
