Hello, readers! I thought I’d put together a list of reads that have made me incredibly emotional and left me in a puddle of tears. Pick up a box of tissues (or ten) before one-clicking this list, you’re going to need it!
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
This is one heartwrenching read. Honestly, who knew I could cry and read—at the same time—for over three chapters? That takes talent.
Ten Below Zero by Whitney Barbetti
It’s almost ridiculous to think about how much this book hurt to read. It’s utterly tragic and exhilarating. A must-read.
Unlit Star by Lindy Zart
This read is so moving and beautiful, yet has the power to render you speechless. Lots of tears and all the feels.
Making Faces by Amy Harmon
This book!!!! I was in such a tearful book hangover after this book!!! So incredible and poignant.
Bright Side by Kim Holden
Not cool, Kim. Bright Side ripped me apart, absolutely shredded my heart, yet I loved every bit of it.
Confess by Colleen Hoover
No surprise here. CoHo knows how to make you cry and pull you back together, every single time.
I was an absolute mess after this book. Real life issues and an unforgiving sadness that sticks with you after you’ve finished the story.
Forever, Interrupted by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Read my review and you’ll see why I couldn’t read this story and not cry my eyes out.
Golden Boy by Abigail Tarttelin
God, this story will never leave me. It’s heartbreakingly sad, yet beautifully executed. The sadness is necessary. Reading this story is a must.
Burying Water by K.A. Tucker
My favorite read from 2014! Expect tears and a perpetual heartache.
Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah
My first ever Kristin Hannah read and my favorite by far. I ugly cried with this one. Brutal and brilliant.
Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler
One of the best YA reads I’ve read to date. A gorgeous, yet devastating, story.
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
This story is SO important. Agonizing, stunning and an overall phenomenal read.
Façade by Nyrae Dawn
Plot twisting and devastating. Love is too small a word for what I feel for this story!
Before We Were Strangers by Renee Carlino
Oh my god, did I cry with this book!! I felt everything these characters were feeling. It's seriously that good.
