    Delirium.
    The Time Traveler's Wife.
    And those two books are my favourites as well, so reading it is both pleasurable & painful.

    Will Grayson, Will Grayson did, because I could sort of relate to the situations and how the characters felt at some points.

    The other book that I remember made me cry a lot was the book The Probability of Miracles. It was so sad. Cry

    Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore made me cry like a baby. It's a retelling of Jesus's life from Biff's point of view, and even though you already know how it ends (Jesus is crucified) you're still hoping it'll be different. Then it's not, even though you knew it wouldn't be, and it's awful for your emotions.

    The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen. It was about a girl who was a track-runner, but something happened and her dad/coach died and she never ran again. Then she fell in love with her boss' son while her boyfriend was at camp or something and when he walked away, she ran for the first time since her father's death. She ran after him in the rain and told him she loved him.

    I bawled my eyes out for like, an hour.

    Bridge to Terrabithia (did I spell that right?)
    I've read it around 5 times and cried each time.

    Another one was in a Maximum Ride book... when Fang left Max after Total's wedding with Akila. (you'd have to read it to understand). I wept for a good ten minutes. Then I cried again when the series ended. I was so attached to the characters! I mean, I could read it again but... it's just not the same, you know?

    :) I recommend both of these books!! Mr. Green

    Marley and me the end... I listened to that book on cd in my car and it finished just as I pulled into my garage. I sat in my car for a good 30 minutes bawling.

    I hardly ever tear up from books or films but The Kite Runner made me tear up a lot. Also Night by Elie Wiesel was just... oh my gosh. I can't even think about it without wanting to just tear up.

    This is so silly but it's 1.27am and I am in my bed reading Betrayed by PC Cast and Kristen Cast and I am sobbing like a baby. All I'll say, in case you haven't read the book is, Stevie Ray. Oh man, oh man.

    The only book I ever cried for was Chinese Cinderella by Adeline Yen Mah, and I had never cried while reading a book (I know, I'm insensitive). But oh god, that was seriously sad.

    Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom is such a beautifully sentimental book. It has taught me so much and I feel as if I am in an active relationship with Morrie, though I am only reading of him. But it's filled me with a hole because I have so many things to ask Morrie, so many personal issues he probably never confronted in his life before, and I need his knowledge and wisdom, but he's dead. And I can interpret his lessons, but I won't be able to ask advice on the most specific things. But the book itself gives me hope, is helping me change my life, and connecting to my soul.

    Tbh, I cried like a bitch when Honeyfern died in Sunrise by Erin Hunter of all things and even though I've read some pretty messed up books, never have I shed another tear. Like seriously, can you say dork.

    Oh jeez, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak Cry . I actually had difficulty reading the last couple of chapters just because I couldn't see past all the tears. (I may also have loaned it out to a couple of friends, all of whom later called me to ask why I wanted to make them cry forever. XD ) It's an absolutely amazing book and I'd really recommend it, but I'd also recommend a box of tissues and a pint of ice-cream to go with it because there will be lots of crying.

    This one book that I can't remember the name of. It was a boy who lived in Kansas or something, and there was this terrible tornado, and his dog went missing during it.

    13 Reasons Why - If any of you have no read that book, I HIGHLY recommend it. It's a wonderful novel about bullying and suicide. And it's so sad!

    There are tons of others, but I can't remember the names of them now.

    The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I cried a little the first time and sobbed for the last 50 or so pages the second time because I knew what was coming. Ugh.

    I never thought that knowing it was going to happen would be worse. Cry I was an emotional wreck for about three days after I read it. Facepalm

    Oh my God, how did I not know about this?? Shocked
    I was literally just talking to my sister about this and how it would be amazing and...I just...can't.

    I'm probably going to be crying as I walk in to the cinema, never mind walking out. XD I just hope it lives up to the book.Think
