Top Ten Books That Will Make You Cry


(TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

I’m so excited about this one! I’m going to look into ALL the lists because I LOVE books that make me cry. I think these are the best ones.

A lot of the books on my list made me cry because of the death of a character. But there are also others where I cried because I was so extremely angry or relieved. Hence these books aren’t all sad ones but they all have something about them that made me shed some tears. I’m not sure all these will make you cry but they had that effect on me. And because these books are so important to me I have to cheat this week and make it 12 books
