    The Lovely Bones By Alice Sebold And A Rose For The Crown By Kate Bywood

    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.

    There are three books

    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...

    It takes a lot to make me cry.

    I don't cry at funrals. I don't cry when in pain. I don't cry when I'm forced to watch my family fight either.. I just don't cry. But for some reason, Kings of Colorado had me sobbing at the end...I'm not talking about one or two tears. I'm talking about full out sobs... What...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The Saddest Book

    For the love of all that is holy, if you ever read "Marley and Me", make sure you have a box of tissues and a phone close to call 911 when you start crying so hard, you almost stop breathing. I wept like a baby while reading that book.  It's a beautiful story...

    Several books made me cry really.

    The first one I remember was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. That book- no actually the whole series, is unforgettable.

    "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.
