S4S – Books that made me cry

Hello there! 

We are in the second half of the year, how did this quite happen? Welcome to July! Welcome to a new set of prompts for #SixforSunday. If you missed the blog post with them all on, follow this link.

Today’s prompt is another of those that I could go on with FOREVER. Today’s prompt is:

Books that made you cry

LOL. Can I just sayt EVERY BOOK EVER? I cry at EVERYTHING. I just love books and the characters OK? But anyway, I’m going with 6 books that genuinely destroyed my soul.

  1. Me Before You – Jojo Moyes
    I can’t watch this film because, even though I’ve seen it 6000 times, it still breaks me.
  2. Tuesdays with Morrie – Mitch Albom
    I could’ve said ANY Mitch Albom book tbh, but I remember reading Tuesdays and just not being able to stop crying for a good hour.
  3. Reasons To Stay Alive – Matt Haig
    This book. Seriously. This book. I implore you ALL to read it. It’s just incredible.
  4. Beyond the Odyssey – Maz Evans
    THIS IS A CHILDREN’S BOOK AND IT DESTROYED ME. Man, I am not ready for the 4th book in this series. I am still not over this book and I finished it at least a month and a half ago. 
  5. Countless – Karen Gregory
    I can’t think about this book and not get emotional. It just is so tough and man, I wept so hard. 
  6. Paper Butterflies – Lisa Heathfield
    This book just is harrowing. Major trigger warnings this book but it made me cry SO HARD.

If you ask me to do this list again in a week there would be different answers… I cry at many/every book.

I want to know what books made you cry/emotional. Share them with me on the #SixforSunday hashtag. I need more crying books!

    I very rarely cry at books but one that did get me started was The Boy Made Of Blocks by Keith Stewart. Tears welled up at one point, but they were tears of joy, extreme emotion at something achieved and written absolutely brilliantly. If you haven’t read it I would thoroughly recommend it.
