Freebie Week! Pick a topic near and dear to your heart! Something you wished was on our official list!
Books That Made Me Cry.
1.) Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson.
I think this is the book that opened up the flood gates in 2015.
I just loved this book so much. It was so heart wrenching,
but don’t let that scare you away. It is SO GOOD!
2.) Drowning Is Inevitable by Shalanda Stanley.
OMG. This book, ripped my heart right out of my chest,
then stepped on it! I know I gave it 4 stars, but I still loved it.
Hopefully I can read it again soon, and maybe I’ll change my mind.
I don’t hear a lot of people talking about this book, when they should be.
Trust me, you all need to read it!!!!
3.) I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson.
4.) The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson.
Jandy Nelson would have to be one of my new favorite
authors. Both of her books are AMAZING, and they had me
constantly tearing up. I can’t wait to see what she comes
up with next. I’ll be waiting there, cash in hand!
5.) The One Thing by Marci Lyn Curtis.
I am so happy to have come across this book. It was my
first time reading a story about a person who is blind. Even
though it wasn’t exactly what I was expecting, it’s an
amazing read. Everyone needs to read this book
at least once! I can’t tell you which part made me
cry because then I will be saying too much. Just read
it and you will know exactly what I am talking about!
6.) The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen.
All I have to say, is that the ending REALLY got me!
It was bittersweet. 😦 Sarah Dessen knows how to tell great
stories, and I can’t wait to devour the rest of her masterpieces!
7.) Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon.
This book actually made me cry happy tears.
It had such a great ending, I wish I knew what
happens next! I can’t wait to see what Nicola Yoon
puts out next. This was a great read!
8.) My Heart & Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga.
This book was so heart wrenching. I think Roman Killed
me the most. He was just so sad! 😦 If you haven’t read this
book yet, you need to…NOW!
9.) Tell The Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt.
This was such a beautiful story. Thank God she found
who knew exactly how she felt, after her Uncle dies.
If you haven’t read this book already, please do. It’s such
a great story.
10.) The Sister Pact by Stacie Ramey.
Ahh, this book was an amazing read. I know what
she feels about her sister, because I feel the same way
about mine. She is my best friend, and I don’t know what
I would do if I were in Allie’s situation. Too sad! 😥
What are some of the books that made you cry like a baby?
If you willing to tell the world, let’s me know down
in the comments! 😀

Tell the Wolves I’m Home destroyed me! Such a beautiful book. I’m not much of a crier in real life but books… they break down my defences. All the Bright Places basically made me have a meltdown. The worst was when my husband came home to find me in absolute hysterics and thought someone had died when actually I had just finished Goodnight, Mister Tom and my emotions were killing me. This is a great idea for a TTT.
I noticed that as I get older, I am more emotional. I used to be the same way, nothing made me cry, but I think now that I’m older and been through some things, I don’t care and I cry when necessary. 😆
I used to hate books that made me cry, but I find I do that more and more now. Now I see it as proof of a good book. It’s nice when you can so emotionally tied up in a book. Great list!
Great list! I’m going to be reading Everything Everything shortly. I’m looking forward to it, even if it does make me cry. 🙂
I agree: everyone should read The One Thing at least once! I was so shocked and sad and crying when I the story unfold and that thing happened… =( And oh my, Roman from My Heart and Other Black Holes just tore me apart!
I know!! 😥
I can’t believe I haven’t read any of these books !! I always love when a book makes me cry it means it was well written and touched me ! Thanks for these recommendations
Strangely, I don’t usually cry when reading books. I definitely tear up sometimes (I’m looking at you, TFiOS) but most of the time it’s only movies that make me cry. I’ve always been sort of self-conscious of this– does this happen to anyone else?
Anyways, great TTT!
I only do it when I’m by myself. I don’t cry in front of people, even if it is heart breaking!
There are so many books here that made me cry too especially Drowning is Inevitable and I’ll give you the sun
Harry Potter OotP, when Sirius died! Oh, and THE FAULT IN OUR STARS. Goodnes, I’ve never cried so hard because of a book. And then, I saw the movie an hour or two after finishing the book. I cried then, too! Man I was an emotional wreck that whole day.
Oh I forgot about The Fault In Our Stars! I cried during the book, but surprisingly I didn’t cry during the movie…Maybe because I was surrounded by a bunch of strangers…
I decided to check the Sister Pact on Goodreads because I too have a sister and I thought I might like the book. I started crying while reading just the excerpt. I can’t imagine how much I would cry when reading the actual book.
Last book that made me cry was a book about a library cat. Very good book too, called Dewey by Vicki Myron.
I’m definitely reading The Sky is Everywhere, soon! I didn’t, but almost cried with I’ll Give You The Sun, it was just too beautiful! ❤ Second chance Summer is the only of Morgan Matson's books I haven't read yet…because I know I will cry so much, haha. I need to read it though 🙂
My Heart & The Other Black Holes broke me the most. It’s also my favourite book. ❤
This is a good list because it shows me what to avoid, unless I’m in the mood for tears :p
Hah! No don’t do that! They are great books, even though they might make you sad, they are too great to pass up!
Oh man, I cried SO hard reading I’ll Give You the Sun. I mean, NOAH!!! I kind of love emotional books. I like feeling something that deeply. Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock definitely got to me, also- Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver 😦 and Looking for Alaska and TFIOS and even Fangirl haha. Great topic choice!!
I know! I LOVE NOAH!!
I also love emotional books, they are the best!
Ahhh… Everything Everything is on my TBR for this year. I guess I shouldn’t plan to read it on the train.
I loved Everywhere, Everywhere! I really enjoyed I’ll give you the sun as well. I need to read the other Jandy Nelson book. It looks good. Great list! Here’s my TTT http://angelerin.blogspot.com/2016/01/top-ten-tuesday-freebie-top-ten-gothic.html?m=0
I really must read Everything, Everything! My TTT
YAY! Great choice of topic this week. I always love freebie week as people always do such amazing topics! I am a total book crier >.< I read and cried at The Sky is Everywhere, I loved that book. I definitely need to hurry up and read some of the others you have mentioned, I do love a book that makes me cry haha.
Here's my TTT post if you want to check it out. I picked non-book romances I would love to see get book adaptations.
It’s true that I cried SO MUCH when I read Second Chance Summer, it triggered so many feels. I don’t enjoy Jandy Nelson’s books unfortunately, they don’t seem to work for me 😦 Everything, Everything was also a cry-worthy books! But fantasy books also makes me cry 🙂
Great list! Quite a few of these are on my TBR list– specifically I’ll Give You the Sun. Time to restock on tissues and wine, I see.
The ending of The Truth About Forever was really bittersweet, wasn’t it. I still need to read Everything, Everything and I’ll Give You the Sun.
I adore My Heart and Other Black Holes…Roman was just perfection. Sigh. Definitely a tear jerker for me and an absolute favorite of 2015. LOVED Everything, Everything as well. 🙂
Everything, Everything was an excellent book! It’s not my usual genre, but I really enjoyed it a lot.
I haven’t read any of these except The Truth About Forever. I’m adding these to my TBR when I need a good, ugly, gut wrenching cry. Great list!
Hi! I cry all the time 🙂 I couldn’t possibly name all the books that made me cry. I did cry in The Sky is Everywhere.
“I cry all the time” 😆 I haven’t had a good cry or a book in a while, I’ve been reading a lot of duds lately… 😦 That makes me want to cry! 😉
Okay so I just cried over a book the other day even when I try to avoid it so I like this topic. I haven’t heard of some of these but I’ll Give You the Sun was pretty good. I have been meaning to get to Everything Everything and My Heart and Other Black Holes so hopefully I’ll get there in 2016!
Now see, I couldn’t do this topic because I’m such a cry baby when it comes to books. I cry so easily. LOL That said, I don’t mind at all. Everything, Everything is one I would like to read some day. And My Heart and Other Black Holes. All of them sound good actually.
I’ll Give You the Sun made me ugly cry, but I loved it. Great picks! Now I have to go add some emotional books to my TBR. 🙂 My TTT
I read mostly fantasy but I did love The Truth about Forever and I am reading Everything Everything right now. Which tear inducing book would you suggest to someone who liked those two books?
Hmm I would recommend any of these books, but especially I’ll Give You The Sun, or The Sky Is Everywhere, both by Jandy Nelson. They are great! 😀
Ok, thank you! I love recommendations in the contemporary genre
I am going to try The Sky is Everywhere
I’m going to have to say The Boy In The Striped Pajamas made me cry like a baby. This week I did Favorite WWII Books for my Top Ten Tuesday.
