Top 3 Thursday: Books that made me cry

Hi all!

Disclaimer ahead of this week’s post: I’m an absolute sap and I cry at everything SO this list can probably be taken with a grain of salt by most of my readers 🙂

That said, I ‘ve tried to think of ones that I might not have been alone in crying over…

1. The Fault in Our Stars – John Green

Okay if you read or watched this and didn’t cry, you’re either lying or have no soul. I’m not even sorry.

2. We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves – Karen Joy Fowler

When this book was suggested to me, I was told that the less you know going in to it the better. It was a great read but, for that reason, I’m not going to say much more about it!

3. The Light Between Oceans – M L Stedman

This one was just…so many tears. All the time. For so many reasons.

What a beautiful, heart-wrenching book. Honestly this book is one of my all-time favourites so if you haven’t read it – do yourself a favour! 🙂


Are you an emotional reader (a.k.a a crier)? I 100% am.

  1. I haven’t read any of them. Book 1. Because I guarantee I will cry. Book 2 sounds super interesting but now I want to know more. And Book 3. That story makes me know I’ll cry!
    I cry and everything. But I hate it haha.

  2. I haven’t read any of those but I saw the Light Between Oceans movie and that made me a little teary.
    I am a bit half and half with my emotions as a reader. If I care about the characters or it is something that I can relate to, I might get emotional but if I don’t care then I am stone to all the death and heartbreak. However, give me an animal and you will have me crying a river in no time!


      1. I mean, crying isn’t a major goal for me, but I think only one book has brought me to tears so far in my life. And there’s something kind of releasing about crying from an emotional book? I’ll need to look at When Breath Becomes Air too!
