This weeks Top Ten Tuesday topic hosted by Broke and Bookish is Ten Books For Readers Who Like To Cry. I thought this would be a fun topic to address. I have made a list before about books that have made me cry, but thought it would be interesting to create a list of a variety of books that are sad for many different reasons. I feel like when people recommend sad books they usually tend to deal with those books concerning death, cancer, illness and although some of these books have that there are also some that deal with other topics just as heartbreaking and sad.
♠ Breathing Trilogy by Rebecca Donovan
This deals with abuse, alcoholism, relationships. It is hard to handle at time and is very heartbreaking.
♠ A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
A Monster Calls is dark and heartbreaking. A young boy is dealing with his mother being sick and has a monster that comes to visit and help him with his struggle.
♠ Left Drowning by Jessica Park
This is a new adult book that deals with loss, guilt, regret and abuse. It is very intense and times and can be hard to take. You fall in love with the characters and its so hard to see them in such pain.
♠ I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios
I just recently read this book and couldn’t believe the emotions and feels it created. I had such a close connection to Skylar the main character and have struggled with some problems she has. It deals with the struggle of money, alcholism, loss and the affects of war. The main love interest and male character Josh. He has come home from the war and is dealing with the struggle of flashbacks, the loss of his friends and loss of his leg. Make sure to have the tissues ready.
♠ Love and Other Unknown Variables by Shannon Lee Alexander
This book is quirky and cute, but also deals with illness, loss and first love. I think fans of TFIOS will really enjoy this one although it may cause some tears!
♠ Volition by Lily Paradis
Now I did not necessarily cry while reading this book, but there was some close calls. This is a dark and slightly twisted story that carries a lot of emotions and feels. It deals with relationships, loss, and the mark carried by those affected by death.
♠ Ensnared by A.G Howard
This was a beautiful finale to an amazing trilogy. This is another that won’t cause everyone tears but there are some very emotional parts and a fantastic ending.
♠ Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
I did have some problems with this book, but one thing it did was cause all the feels. This family is spending a summer at their lake house which may be the dad’s last because he was diagnosed with cancer and doesn’t have much time left. Cue to tears and feels.
♠ Messanger by Lois Lowry
I may the only one who was moved to tears by this book. I really got attached to the main character and so was made to feel all the feels.
♠ Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre
Mortal Danger deals with suicide, loss and the affects that bullying has on a person. It was hard not to get teared up while reading this book.
What are some books you would recommend to make people cry? Have you read any of these? Did you feel the feels?
