Books That Made You Cry

Not long ago, the hashtag #booksthatchangedmyworld took Twitter by storm. The latest literary hastag to go viral is #booksthatmademecry. It was started by author Jason Pinter, who urged people to share which books made them reach for the tissue box. Popular responses included Where the Red Fern Grows, Charlotte’s Web, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Check out a few of the many responses:

For me, I’d have to say that pretty much every Nicholas Sparks book I’ve read has made me cry. I also got a little choked up at the end of Mockingjay (such a sad ending!). How about you? What books made you cry?

    To be honest, I very rarely cry when I read a book. Even though sad stories do affect me, I don’t think I ever shed real tears when reading a book. That said I cry a lot when watching movies (movies based on Nicholas Sparks’ novels always get me 😉 ), so I’m not sure why books don’t have the same effect.

      Ha ha, the way Nicholas Sparks manipulates emotions is just evil :) I think I cry more at movies too. I don’t remember crying while reading The Time Traveler’s Wife, but during the movie? Oh man, I needed a few tissues.
