    Basically every book I read,

    regardless if it's a tragedy genre or not. Well, it's not my fault that my soul hurts when a book ends. I feel like my adventure ended with them... :'( CREYS

    Love, Sacrifice And A Farewell

    I was trying to explain to my mother why I loved the books so damned much.  Why I was slightly overwrought at coming to the end of the final one in the series.  Why I was so angry at the conservative Christians - particularly the Mormons I knew - who rejected the books for...

    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 lost everyone and everything she ever loved. Besides that it is a beautiful story, and if anything I feel quite inspired after reading it.

    I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai

    & Lajja by Taslima Nasrin. Not a romantic novel,both of them depicts the tremendous tragedies that Religion has ever brought to Mankind.Not a good read,if you want to get lost in your world of Fantasies.Very ruthless,very realistic..

    I don't know why, but

    after reading The Glass Castle by Jennette Wall I started crying. Something about how the entire book was like going through the life of a family and watching their life flash by.

    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.

    When I read the Lord of The Flies

    for homework, it made me bawl my eyes out. I hated the part when Piggy died considering that he was the most sensible character in the book besides Ralph and Simon.

    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.

    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...
