  1. I bought the whole Reason to Breathe series on my friends recommendation. I didn't realize it was tear jerker material. She said it was great. And Heck Yeah to Shadow Kiss. I ugly cried and then almost threw my book across the room. lol. TTT

    Great picks. If I Stay made my list too, such an emotional and beautiful book. I also picked Deathly Hallows, I pretty much cry from beginning to end. My TTT :)

  4. I remember that Bridge to Terabithia was a pretty rough read when I was a kid. Very sad.

  5. Bridge to Terabithia always makes me cry - no matter how many times I read it

  6. I completely agree with If I Stay. That book made me cry so many tears. I just couldn't seem to stop crying while reading. It is such a sad and tragic story that how can a person not cry at least once while reading it?

  8. I can't believe I forgot Bridge to Terabithia. I read that in 4th grade and cried my eyes out. And I'm actually reading The Shack right now, but I was warned it was a crying book before I started.


    Thanks for stopping by my TTT! :)

  10. I've just read book 1 and it was definitely an emotional read. I mean I didn't blubber or anything, but still. It's definitely a great read! I gave it 5 Stars. Oh yes, Shadow Kiss made my Top Ten Books that Will Make You Cry (obvs) and my Top Ten Books that Will Make You Swoon list! Oh Dimitri! Thanks for stopping by!

  11. I know, right? So many good ones out there! Yes...Dimitri is my favorite book boyfriend ever. Such a sad ending to a book. It also made my Top Ten Books that Will Make You Swoon list too though! Shadow Kiss is just an all-around great book with the full range of emotions! Thanks for stopping by!

  12. Oh yes, If I Stay was major. That one had my on the verge of blubbering! It was messy! And so many characters lost in the Deathly Hallows! It HAD to make the list! Thanks for commenting!

  13. Yep. I read that one in the 5th or 6th grade and I think it was one of the first books that I read where a major character died. So sad.

  14. Yep. The movie too! Sheesh! Thanks for stopping by!

  15. Worst part for me with If I Stay is that I listened to the audio version AT WORK! I was totally over there sniffing and crying while I was trying to write lines of code for my programs. I'm sure the guys that I work with were totally freaked out that day! :)

  16. It's a great book for sure, but tears are almost unavoidable. I hope you enjoy it! And thanks for stopping by!

  17. I know right. That was about the age I was when I read it for the first time too. The Shack didn't make me cry as much as I was told to expect to. I did cry, but not the whole time. But since two other friends of mine messy-cried reading The Shack I felt like it should make the cut. Thanks for stopping by!

  18. OF COURSE! I mean come on! Both of those are classic snotfest books! It can't be helped! Thanks for stopping by!

  19. Oh boy, The Shack had me weeping like nothing else. I Totally forgot about that one. I have seen Rose Under Fire on a lot of lists, I wouldn't have thought that one was a tear jerker.

    Great list!

  20. Oh yes. I debated adding Code Name Verity to the list, but for me Rose Under Fire was more emotional. Thanks for commenting!

    I'm just about to read If I Stay in a few days and everyone's been telling me to brace myself for all the tears I'll be shedding over the course of reading it. *gulps*

    Great list! ^_^
