Top Ten Tuesday: Books that Made me Cry

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme that originates at The Broke and The Bookish. And yes, I am aware that today is Wednesday but, well, anyway... This week the subject is books that make you cry.  I was going to write a little bit about each book but really that would just end up with me using words such as sad, moving, extraordinary.  What these books have in common, other than my tear stains, is that they are all as close to perfection as I have come to reading - it seems that books that move me rapidly become by favourite books ever. With the IMPORTANT EXCEPTION of House of Leaves which made me cry because I was SO DAMN FRIGHTENED. Anyway, without further ado, welcome to my own personal Valley of Tears:

The Fault In Our Stars is on my list too, so so sad. I haven't actually heard of any of the other books, except How to Save a Life, but I haven't read that one.

The Fault in Our Stars is the only book on your list that I've read (and it's on my list too). Clearly I have a lot of reading to do! And I also need to invest in a HUGE box of tissues!
Oh The Fault in Our Stars!! Such a sad book!! I def bawled! Even during the movie trailer! Idk how I'll be able to watch the actual movie w/o being a blubbering mess!! Great list! Thanks for sharing! :)
