Amanda’s Top Ten Tuesday – Books That Made Me Sob

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week we talk about our top ten with a different topic provided by Jana. This week’s topic is a genre freebie (pick a genre and build a list around it! i.e., best/worst romances, non-fiction for travelers, memoirs for foodies, classics that feel timeless, romance novel kisses, science fiction that feels too real for comfort, women’s fiction for newbies, etc.) My genre topic will be hard-hitting contemporary books or realistic fiction that made me cry like a baby.

Amanda’s Top Ten Tuesday – Will Make You Cry

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week we have a different topic that we write our top ten about. This weeks topic is top ten books that will make you cry. I think this is a really interesting topic. Here’s what I came up with.

1)Looking for Alaska by John Green– This is my absolute favorite book that I’ve ever read. Everytime I reread it I always cry even though I know how the story ends.

2)The Fault in Our Stars by John Green– Tfios is definitely in my list of top five favorite books. And its impossible to read this book without crying.

3)The Book Thief by Markus Zusak– I recently read this book, and cried over it. Lesiel’s story is just so strong.

4)The Beautiful Creatures Series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl– As I read this series I got really attached to the characters and their lives. There are some big losses in this series.

5)Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout– The Lux Series is a relatively new favorite of mine. There is just so much sadness and love in from these characters.

I’m not going to make it to ten on this tuesday, so five it is. These five books made me cry. Anyone else agree?
-Amanda.
