For the first time in a decade, I cried helplessly at the death of Lee Scoresby and his daemon Hester in The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman.

The soul thief by Kim Richardson. Many part of the chapters I get emotional and cry well literally crying. The part where Alexa got betrayed by her very first love.

The House of Night series. It’s a different type of vampire lore. Some people have the “vampire” gene and turn at about 16. The change is a process and some kids don’t live through it. And then a beloved character gets murdered...

I cry when I see the character is sad, in a bad situation or crying themselves.

When I read man mission and the main character was crying and depressed after his divorce I felt to cry with him

I recently read the book ' We Drank Wine' and tears came to my eyes when one of the women was described in floods of tears and having a breakdown

I'm not one to cry because of a book or a movie. However when I finished the Dark Tower series by Stephen King I bawled through the last two books. Once I finished I was so mad at the ending that I actually threw the book against the wall and cried for a solid hour. It might have been a bit dramatic but that series was what got me through my grandparents death so finishing with the ending that it did hit me harder than it should have.

I'm really not an emotional person but I must say that when I read the book " True to the game " it struck something in me.
The ending when Quadir gets hurt leaving Gena by herself made fall out in tears

Some of the Harry Potter books have made me cry. It usually happens at the end of the book when the storyline is wrapping up. My emotions get the best of me I guess!

I have cried with so many books it's not even funny. I have actually lost track of them. I do remember a sobbed like a baby whilw reading Allegiant, the last one of the Divergent saga.

I’m not a cryer, but I recently read Dear Edward and bawled at the ending. Such a great message. Don’t waste time. We are all connected.

I cried for many books, at the end of 1984 for example. It gave me a
tremendous sense of helplessness.

I haven't cried because of a book for ages (movies are something else entirely ^^') the last time was when I was around twelve years old and read "Eragon". There was a scene with a murdered village and a dead baby and that had me crying for I had to think of my baby sister at that time.
Other than that I don't really cry over books. I mean I get angry and all worked up when my favourite character dies (again) and sometimes I have trouble sleeping after reading something very emotional because I can't stop thinking about it but I haven't cryied since the "Eragon" incident.
