1. Rilla of Ingleside by L.M. Montgomery
Cried doesn't seem quite strong enough. I sobbed, wept through pretty much this entire book. I don't know if it's having teenagers or having a four year old but even though I've read this book about Anne's children going to war it's never affected me quite like it did a few months ago. This wasn't just teared up - this was openly weeping to the point if I read more than a chapter or so a night my eyes would be swollen the next day.
2. Marley and Me by Josh Grogan - This is another one I sobbed during. I cried so hard at the ending that J wouldn't believe I was that upset over a book.
3. The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom - I resisted reading this book for awhile despite having a friend strongly recommending it. I was afraid it would be preachy but it was wonderful.
4. Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery - This one isn't sobbing but there are scenes that cannot be read without crying.
5. The Shell Seekers by Rosamunce Pilcher - This one doesn't affect me quite like it used too but I read this book to pieces in high school and college.
6. Love Story by Erich Segal - I cannot even think about this book without remembering the story a friend told me about how she was reading in class and as she was getting to the ending she all of a sudden remembered the first line and spent the rest of the time torn between not being able to put the book down and not wanting to get caught reading (and crying in class).
7. Handle with Care by Jodi Picoult - I read this for a book club a few years ago and I have mixed feelings about it. I cried but I felt so manipulated that I was mad about it.
8. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - The scene with Rue's death. Oh the tears.
9. The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever by Julia Quinn - I know I'm in the minority here but I loved this one. And cried quite a few times.
10. She: The Old Woman Who Took Over My Life by Kathryn Tucker Windham - this is Windham's final book as she looks back over her life. She died before it was finished.
