For me the book that has made me shed the most tears was perks of being a wallflower it is sad to the extreme I love it! I also grew up reading Jacqueline Wilson books which were all pretty miserable but the only one that really made me cry was my sister Jodie. I have since given all my JW’s away to the library at my primary school but I will always credit them as being a huge part of my childhood it was just time to let them go. But they were certainly tear jerkers.
Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, I had a huge lump in my throat and my pages were covered in tears.
The House of Hades by Rick Riordan
Annabeth’s fall in to tartarus made me cry. I really thought she wouldn’t make it
Any book can make me cry if I accidentally drop it onto my foot
But I don’t think that I’ve ever cried because of how sad or good a book is
The recent Skullduggery book made me tear up like three times
Why are you giving me such spoilers that aren’t even spoilers?!
The Hate U Give made me cry lowkey.
Before I Fall made me cry. So did The Color Project. The Hate U Give did too.
I cry fairly easily when it comes to books so probably a lot more but my memory is baddd.
The one I properly cried at was We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. I read it when I was like in Year 7 or 18 (so 12 or 13) and I finished it in the middle of the night, then I sat on the toilet and cried. True. Story.
I’m really sensitive so anything can make me cry, even the smallest things. I do love sad romantic novels so everything by Nicholas Sparks is bound to make me cry. Guillaume Musso is successful at that too, especially with Because I love you.
Where the Red Fern Grows
I can’t name any, 'cause I’m not overly sensitive (to the point of crying) when it comes to books. How about you, @Bookworms?
I can. But it’s not in English. It might have been translated into English but I ain’t sure
What’s wrong with naming it in a different language, there might be others who have read it here. Maybe name in the language and with the translation too?
YEY I FOUND THE LINK OF THE ENGLISH TRANSLATION VERSION
The Name of the Novel is ‘Srikanta’ , which is also the name of the protagonist. It’s written by Sharat Chandra Chattopadhay, originally written in Bengali language. This the first book that brought tears into my eyes. I don’t know how they have translated it but if anyone here can read bengali, I guarantee you’ll be crying nonstop while reading this.
And Pather Panchali (Song of the road) as well, written by Bibhutibhusan Bandopadhyay
Ooooh… I have to add this book to my list. I just read the first paragraph of the preface and I want to read it.
Take a look at the Pather Panchali (Song of the Road) by Bibhutibhusan Bandopadhyay as well!
Why is that?
It’s a good one as well. It’s reflects on the life story of two siblings named Apu (the brother’s name) and Durga (the sister) as they grew up in midst of poverty and hate from their neighbours. I cried hard when Durga died from malaria without proper treatment
Hmm… I’ll have a look.
