Top 10 Books that will Make you Cry
|Our Hosts - The Broke and the Bookish|
Oh boy! Tough one – because I don’t like to cry over a book!
Classic – Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls. I don’t think they have students read this any more in school. I did and I cried!
Nicholas Sparks – I stopped reading his books (finally – it only took about THREE of them to make up my mind!) because I was tired of crying! Here are the ones I shed tears over: The Notebook, Message in a Bottle, The Wedding (tears of joy?!)
Emily and Einstein by Linda Francis Lee. Wow – that surprised me. I sat on the couch and cried (silently, I hope) for a bit after closing the book!
Skipping a Beat by Sarah Pekkanen. I knew it was going to happen. Don’t finish this book while next to your sleeping spouse – they will wonder what’s wrong!
The Next Thing on My List by Jill Smolinski. I definitely got teary-eyed a few times while reading this book – only because of the premise. A woman completes a dead woman’s “To-Do” List.
Edith and Mr. Bear by Dare Wright. A children’s book. I used to cry, as a young girl, reading this, because Edith seemed so sad…and again when Mr. Bear found her!
And now – for books that were so funny, I cried while laughing (and almost pee’d my pants!)
The Undiscovered Goddess by Michelle Colston – Truly, there were scenes in this book that had me laughing so hard water was squirting out of my eyes – but it is also a book about self-discovery and highly recommended.
And One Last Thing by Molly Harper. Very amusing, and heart-warming as well...and some pretty funny scenes!
So...what books have made you reach for the tissue box?
(Then I can avoid them...maybe! :) )
