One book that has made me cry is "The perks of being a wallflower" By Stephen Chbosky. I think I was so emotional is because I have been through similar things that the main character has and it brought up those memories.

There have been a couple of books that made me cry. Ones that consistently make me cry, even though I know what is coming, include Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See and The Messenger by Lois Lowry.

I strongly remember one book that made me cry was The Hate U Give, sad thing is, is was like the fourth chapter in. Although many other parts in the book also made me cry my eyes out as well. It’s just terrible to see how the characters were treated by others who are more “privileged”. Not to mention it really opens your eyes to what is going around you, especially today.

The Amber Spyglass by Phillip Pullman. It is the third book in the His Dark Materials series. Separated young lovers and all that.

Where the Red Fern Grows had me bawling like a baby, and we read that one in school! How embarrassing! Old Yeller was another one. Any one where the dog dies is heart wrenching. I want to know ahead of time if the dog dies so that I can avoid the story, even if it means spoilers. Then there's Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men, Romeo and Juliet. . .guess I'm a big baby.

Any Harry Potter books where a favorite character of mine died made me bawl like a baby. Deathly Hallows was the worst of them for me. Fault in Our Stars also made me sob. I didn't think I would for that one. I went into reading the book with the mindset that it was just overhyped and it would only be okay. I was dead wrong. It was more than what it was made out to be. Also, Allegiant. The ending of that upset me extremely.

Bridge to Terabithia - Katherine Paterson
Scarecrow - Mathew Riley (when Fox dies and Scarecrow and Mother fight)

Pretty much any book that a main character dies and the author really clearly conveys the emotional loss of the remaining characters to the reader can make me cry.

Misfits by Charli Howard.

(Eating Disorder trigger warning...)

It had me sobbing within the first half. A short memoir that explains how a normal-sized woman was constantly told she wasn't small enough for the modelling industry. Always being told that she needed to lose that extra inch around her middle made me cry - especially when she was starving herself.

I've struggled with eating disorders and it was so refreshingly heartbreaking to hear someone give the painful truth of what was happening, and coming out the end loving herself. Such a beautiful book.
