{Top Ten Tuesday} To Ten Books That Will Make You Cry

By: | Feb 4, 2014


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. It was created because of their love of lists! I myself love lists as well - so you will see it frequently popping up on MMSAI.

This Weeks Topic is

Top Ten books that will make you cry

Sometimes I’m shocked at the things that will happen in a book that will evoke such strong emotion from me. If a book makes me cry once, it likely makes me cry multiple times through out.
As always, the list is in no particular order.


1. Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. Sweet Jesus, can we just take a moment here to discuss how this book throws your emotions around? I cried easily 3 times during this book.

2. New Moon (Twilight #2) by Stephenie Meyer – Okay you’re thinking, “When Edward left her” but no…I cried hardest when Jacob pushed her away. (PS. I’m Team Jasper if anyone is thinking it’s because I was Team Jacob…)

3. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green – Okay? Okay.

4.  A Touch Menacing (A Touch Trilogy #3) by Leah Clifford – Screw you Leah Clifford and your ending (PS thanks for re-writing it for me in my copy!)

5. Second Hand Heart by Catherine Ryan Hyde – You won’t get through it with out crying at least once.

6. If I Lie by Corrine Jackson – people, the book CAME WITH Kleenex! I’m not even kidding.

7. Evertrue (Everneath #3) by Brodi Ashton – I can’t even talk about this one. It’s still too fresh.

8. Easy by Tammara Webber – I can’t list the number of times I cried reading this.

9. Forever (Shiver #3) by Maggie Stiefvater – my only solace in this is that I was able to scold Maggie in person for making me cry. Of course that’s the highest compliment an author can get, so….

10. Pushed (Touched #2) by Corrine Jackson – yea she’s on the list twice, the girls got a way with making me sob – what can I say.

What books made you cry? Tell me in the comments or leave me a link to you list of tissue requiring books!


  1. I'm planning to read Shiver soon... so this scares me! Great list.

    1. I don't recall crying in that series until FOREVER which is the last book, so you're safe for now!

  2. Ugh- The Fault in Our Stars. I'd like to see one person read that book without shedding a tear. If they can, they have no heart. It was also on my list this week. Along with a few others. I've heard a lot of good things about If I Lie, I think I need to get on that one Asap.

    Great list,

  3. Great list! I do not think anyone can read Fault in the Stars without shedding a few tears. Well, perhaps some manly guys who won't admit to it. :) Like, Avid Reader above, Shiver is on my TBR list too. Happy Reading!

  4. I"m reading TFIOS right now. I just know I'm going to cry. :/ TTT

  5. Here here for TFIOS! I know I'm going to have to read it again before the movie comes out...but I just don't know if my heart can take it :) Loved your list! Some many I need to add to my to-read list now!
