Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at The Broke and Bookish.
This Week's Topic. I am pretty easy to cry when it comes to books. But the following are ones that really hit me where it hurts. I believe 80% of the books featured this week I have talked about a lot... so maybe I like reading books that make me cry. I hope you enjoy!
Top Ten Books That Will Make You Cry
1) Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma- This book killed me. There is one particular scene that broke my heart and I tear up thinking about it now.
2) If I Stay by Gayle Forman- This whole books is sad. How can it not be. How do you chose whether to live or die. I remember listening to the audiobook at work, and having to blink a bunch of times to clear my eyes, and then take a bathroom break to get myself together.
3) The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak- If you follow me on Twitter- and have been since the beginning of January, you will have seen me fall apart over this book. Just read it. It's a beautiful story.
4) The Fault in Our Stars by John Green- Uhhh... A book about two kids who are battling cancer falling in love.
5) Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta- This book is full of misunderstandings and missed chances. It's cause for a lot of really sad realizations. Heartbreaking.
6) Change of Heart by Jodie Picoult- I have a hard time with injustices and when people make sacrifices due to certain these injustices. Change of Heart is full of this. And well- I cried.
7) Dreamland by Sarah Dessen- This story is sad in general. But there is a pretty intense moment between the protagonist and her mother that has me bawling every time.
8) Precious and Fragile Things by Megan Hart- My heart hurts when kids are hurt and then they turn into adult who are so incredibly broken. This is what Precious and Fragile Things is all about. The whole time all I could keep saying "that poor boy. that poor poor boy."
9) Lullabies for Little Criminal by Heather O'Neill- Again, this story is about a little girl who makes some disastrous decisions at such a young age. Again, there is a moment between her and her father that had me inconsolable. It's a very powerful story.
10) My Life After Now by Jessica Verdi- Another sad story. But what got to me about this one was once again, the relationship between the girl and her dad.
~Happy Reading Everyone!
