Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they come up with a list for us to complete. This week the topic is Top Ten Books That Will Make You Cry.
I haven’t full on bawled to a book very often, but many books have made me feel incredibly emotional, so I’ve listed them below in no particular order.
As ever, click on the book image to get to the Goodread’s page for the book!
And For Your Information- Denise Deegan– This little trilogy isn’t well know enough for my liking. This book is the second in the series and in my opinion, the best. I really loved reading it and felt such a wide range of emotions all the way through it. READ IT!
Hurt– Tabitha Suzuma– This book was a slow burner for me, but I ended up feeling really moved by it.
Me Before You- Jojo Moyes– I didn’t expect to feel so much for this book, but I really did! It’s possibly one of my favourite books of all time. I know they’re making it into a movie and I’m terrified. I really don’t want the movie to wreck this beautiful book. Argh, I love it.
Undone– Cat Clarke– This book left me speechless at the end. I was completely overwhelmed by it.
The Son– Michel Rostain- The author of this book lost his son to meningitis. With this book, he explains his grief for his son, using his son’s voice. So emotional. It really moved me and one I have to shout READ IT at you for. I apologise for shouting! 😉
Cross My Heart And Hope To Live– Carmen Reid- This is another really emotional book. It was probably one of my favourites from last year. It takes place in Brussels in 1940, as the Nazi’s invade Belgium.
The Book Thief– Markus Zusak– I expect I’ll see this book around a lot this week. It really is a superb book. Again, I have worries about the movie adaptation but I hope it’s done well.
Sarah’s Key– Tatiana DeRosnay– I read this book pre-blog! It really moved me.
A Child Called It– Dave Pelzer– This book shocked me, moved me and disgusted me at points. A true story of a survivor.
P.S I Love You– Cecelia Ahern– I love Cecelia Ahern. Her writing is just brilliant! I thought this was an incredibly emotional read. This is a book that has been adapted to a movie and I have to say… the book is better! If you haven’t read the book, I’d seriously recommend reading it! Don’t be put off by the cover if you’re not a chick lit fan.. my sister enjoyed it and she HATES chick lit!
