Books That Made Me Cry

This blog post was inspired by The Broke and The Bookish
The theme is to list 10 books that made you cry.
I have to say, not many books make me cry.
Here is a short list of those I recall.

(1) Unlocked (Karen Kingsbury)

(2) Like Dandelion Dust (Karen Kingsbury)

(3) Shattered Dreams (r. William Rogers)

Which books have made you cry? Do books make you cry?

I would have to really think hard to complete this assignment. There have been many, but the remembering part would be tough.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Hi Sandee,

Thanks for stopping by.
You are always such an encouragement to me.

Same here. There is little to make me cry although I would have to go with reality tragic books. For example Anne Frank. We had to read it in High school and the reality of her suffering really touched me.

Hi Lady Lilith,

When I become attached to a character I tend to get involved emotionally. Sometimes this makes me cry, most often not. I consider a good book to be one that draws me in.

Thanks for stopping by.
Blessings for your week!

I'm not sure there are many books which have made me cry....but if I saw the same story on the screen, it might be a different story.

I cry a lot while reading, sadly. I'm super emotional. ;) I'm having a hard time remembering some of the main ones that have made me cry, but I do know I pretty much cry while reading anything Donna Vanliere writes.

Hi Bluerose,

I think I have read one Donna Vanliere book. Perhaps I should read more.

Thank you for stopping by.

Have a great week!

I always cry in movies. Not usually with books. I have read a few Karen Kingsley. The latest is the Family of Jesus. Very cool book. I really enjoyed it.
Thanks for coming by.
Have a great week.

I'm not one to cry over books... I will have to think on which ones have made me cry.
Well, I know the Hunger Games did, both in the first and third. That's kind of sad that is all I can think of!

Hi Sherry,

I too tend to cry more over movies than books.
Especially if the movie is based on true facts.
Michelle F said…
Hi Amanda, I have not read any of the Hunger Games series.

I saw a movie and liked it.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Linda Kay, same thing here.
I cried over the book `Like Dandelion Dust`. However, I think I cried more over the movie.

I generally don't cry over books as I read to be entertained, or to laugh. The exception are books by Judy Picoult.
Michelle F said…
Hi Rhonda,

I have not read any of Judy Picoult's books.

Sometimes we just need a good hearty laugh, don't we?

Blessings for your day.

I think I cried on 2 books recently - Me Before You, and The Fault in our Stars.
