Top 5 Wednesday: Books That Made Me Cry

Top 5 Wednesday is a meme started by Lainey at Ginger Reads Lainey. Find the list of all the #T5WFamily here.

This weeks topic is:

Top 5 Books That Made Me Cry!
I'm not one to cry a lot. I might get a few tears here or there. But I've got a pretty cold heart. So if a book can make my ugly sob you know it has done its job. Surprisingly though, it was hard to cut it down to five. I guess I've read some really emotionally draining books. So I've went ahead and narrowed it down to five books that have made me ball like a baby as reading and even days after when thinking about them I've shed a few more of my precious tears. These are some of my very favourite books and I love them to pieces even if they killed me.
Obviously I can't really say why the book made me cry because of spoilers. Just know that I sobbed, possibly more than once, well reading and after I was done reading.

5. Allegiant

4. Code Name Verity

3. Maybe Someday

2. Anybody Out There

1. Me Before You

Clearly I'm missing a lot of popular books that I love and have left my tear ducts all dried up like Harry Potter, TFiOS, The Book Thief, Clockwork Princess, One Day and Firefly Lane(to name a few). So what do you say? What are some books that left you in a puddle of your own tears?

Happy reading!



  1. Out of these, I only read Allegiant and did not shed a tear :X I was pretty meh about the ending, I found it pretty okay actually. But maybe that was because I didn't enjoy the protagonists as much as in first two installments...

  2. Alleigent was tragic.
    Mockingjay was devastating.
    TFIOS was too much to handle.
    The Book Thief left me an emotional wreck.

    Great blog :P

  3. Maybe Someday is soul destroying. But I'm craving a re-read. I can't even remember if I cried at the end of Allegiant. I know I cried when something happened to a different character that I loved so much, but I don't think I cried at the ending. Oh wait, I just remembered that I did because Four. I need to read Code Name Verity and Me Before You.

  4. I have read three of them and actually didn't cry at them - Allegiant.. HATED that whole book, was kinda glad when we got to the end and the twist happened, Code Name Verity - just didn't get it, Maybe Someday - LOVE that book but it didn't get me crying. HP would top my list, those books make me cry more than any others.
