Has reading a book ever made you cry? Which one and why?

Just a fun question :). The one book that made me bawl like a baby was Handle with Care by Jodi Picoult. Her endings kill me lol.

  • The Notebook made me cry, and Bridges of Madison County sent me into a complete breakdown, lol. I ended up with a migraine I cried so hard. I think both hit me so hard because the stories hit very close to home at the time I read them.

  • "The Child Called It"
    True story. Very sad. Read it 3 times because it was unbelieveable.

  • Most of the Twilight saga esp. Twilight and New Moon. I just pour tears of either joy or misery. It's quite pathetic how those books affect me. The Giving Tree makes me sob like a baby. I also just read Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas by James Patterson. OMG that book literally had tears pouring down my face. Tons of other makes me cry but those stick out in my mind right now.

  • "She Comes Undone" - about a woman with mental issues. I can't remember the writer, but I still have the book somewhere in storage.
