    Nice list. My only thing is that I think Allegiant almost made me cry at how bad it was. Roth really messed up the whole shabang for me. Have you read Eleanor & Park? I can’t stop crying unless it’s to laugh.

    I absolutely agree with the books I have read, but they all seem very chick-lit. I would have included The Perks of Being a Wallflower or The Book Thief or The Amber Spyglass. I now have a few more books in my “to-read” list!

    1. Nemo

      I think I recall Northern Lights and The Subtle Knife making me cry, but not so much The Amber Spyglass. I haven’t read the other two books and I doubt I’m going to as they don’t sound appealing. The only chick-lit on this list is It Felt Like a Kiss.

    Wither was so good! Definitely had cry worthy moments. I have read the start of Kristin Cashore’s series, as well as Cynthia Hands and Veronica Roth- But I just haven’t gotten up to finishing them.. and honestly i’m kinda scared >.< I haven't read the others- or even heard of a couple of them! Time to fix this i think! Great lost 😀

      The rest of the Cashore, Hand and Roth series are well worth the read, but I completely understand not having had time to read them yet. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

    Hah, I typically don’t cry at everything, but books, movies, and TV shows have a way of getting to me like no other. Before I Fall made my list, too. Lauren Oliver is a horrible evil wonderfully brilliant horrible evil person. She really knows how to stab a heart.

    Wonderful list! A lot of these are on my TBR.
    My list!

    1. Nemo

      She’s very good at writing hugely emotion-driven stories, and I love that. I’m a big baby, though, I cry at EVERYTHING.

    1. Nemo

      In With something very specific happens to one of the characters that sets of a big emotional trigger in me, but I don’t want to spoil it, so I won’t tell you any more. I don’t think it’s a weepy book for everyone, but it did affect me very personally.
