Top Ten Tuesdays: Tearjerkers

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

This week's edition is books that will leave you in tears. 

Here are my picks: 

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson- This book left me ruined for the rest of the day. 
The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks- I am not usually a huge fan of Sparks' writing but this one had me pulled in and invested in the characters.

 Firefly Lane by Kristen Hannah- This is a beautiful book about friendship and I was left crying for hours. 
The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein- If you are a dog lover then this book will bring a tear or two to your eyes. 

Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares- If you like the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants series then this book is definitely the most heart breaking. 
My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult- This was my first Picoult and I didn't know what to expect. If you've seen the movie this is definitely different.

Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay- This story is so good but so sad. 
Anybody Out There by Marian Keyes- This may be classified as women's lit but I bet you can't get through it without getting emotional.

 The Stone Carvers by Jane Urquhart- This book, in one word, is beautiful. 

Golden Boy by Abigail Tarttelin- This is one of my favourite books of 2013 and yes it did make me cry. 

I'm looking forward to seeing your lists. 

Happy Reading!


  1. Great haul! My Sister's Keeper made my list too, I was actually really annoyed at the movie - even though, when reading the book, that was how I wanted/thought it would end. But I loved the book so much, even though it made me sob like crazy and I kind of needed the movie to do the same. Great picks! My TTT :)

  2. I completely forgot about The Art of Racing in the Rain. That one got me too! I really enjoyed Morgan Matson's first book, but I just can't bring myself to read Second Chance Summer. I can't. Thanks for sharing! ~Megan

  3. My Sister's Keeper has been on lots of lists - I definitely need to read that one!
