Sooo I’m doing Top Ten Tuesday on MONDAY this week because I have a special book review for a tour that’s scheduled for tomorrow and I really dislike when I post two good, content filled things on one day. I’m fine if it’s more of a promo-y thing or a giveaway with content but I hate putting two full of content posts up on one day. OVERLOAD for me for sure in getting it done and maybe even for you? Top Ten Tuesday, as always, is hosted at my other blog — The Broke & the Bookish
This week’s topic: Top Ten Books That Made Me Cry — I am definitely a crier! I cry over books, movies, tv shows, commercials….and it makes Will laugh sometimes. Lovingly of course. So I cry often while reading but these are the TOP OF THE TOP. I’ve done this topic before (this topic was originally done November 2010 when Top Ten Tuesday was still new) so you can check out that post HERE (books like Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close & The Book Thief). So I’m going to refrain from listing those ones here.
The Book of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ockler: Oh man. This was such a sweet book. Loved the father/daughter relationship and I loved the romance that was also in this one. But it definitely made me cry. Highly recommend!
Maybe One Day by Melissa Kantor (review to come): I was just reading this recently while babysitting and
pretty much I couldn’t stop crying at the end and I was like, “OMG these children cannot wake up from their nap because I cannot control myself right now.”
If I Stay by Gayle Forman (ALSO, WHERE SHE WENT): Between If I Stay and Where She Went Gayle Forman owns so many of my tears. So many parts in IIS (especially the headphones scene) and WWS = the bridge scene!
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein: Interestingly I didn’t bawl the first time I read those threeeee little words. (KISS ME HARDY). I teared up but mostly I was just too stunned. But I bawl like a baby when I think of that book now.
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson: This was so many straight pages of me bawling. Will made me STOP reading because I was doing that choking thing when you cry. There are few books (The Book Thief is the only one I can really think of) that have made me cry THIS hard. A lot had to do with how I could very much relate to this.
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta: SOB SOB SOB. God, this book. It takes a bit to get into this one but WHEWWWW…the payoff is worth it.
The Impossible Knife Of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson: I cried like a baby at the end of this one. I really loved this book!
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell: Ending gutted me. So many feelings.
Where The Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller: I was at the pool reading this and I was crying and had to submerge myself into the water to wash away the tears so nobody could tell I was crying!
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart: I’m not saying anything about this but there was a part and I just burst into tears and curled up in the fetal position.
