I'm a crier, especially when it comes to books, movies and TV shows. Sometimes I just cry when things end, even if the ending is happy. I just recently read two books that had me crying all the tears. I just wanted to share a few of the books that I ugly cried while reading.
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
I full on sobbed for about 100 pages to the point that I couldn't breathe. I had tears all over my face and hands. It was the ugliest of crying ever. The funny thing was I knew what the ending was going to be, obvious not all of the specifics, but I was prepared for this and I still couldn't control my emotions. I really need to go to the movies and see it, then cry some more!
Nine, Ten: A September 11th Story by Nora Raleigh Baskin
This subject matter is bound to induce tears, but I think I cried more for the themes of this novel. The fact that I don't know/remember a world before 9/11 is sad. I was also moved to tears by the ending and how all of the characters came together in both a patriotic way and an anti-racism way. This is a middle grade novel that you have to pick up.

Allegiant by Veronica Roth
I may not have loved this book a whole lot in after thoughts, when I thought critically about the craft, but when I was submersed in the novel and that thing happened I was crying a lot. I remember sending pictures of my tears on the pages to a friend who had finished it before me. Whether I loved it or not, I spent three books connected with the characters and I couldn't help but break down. I also understood it, but I was just not happy with the world building that happened in this book.
The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks (Among other books by him)
I had a giant binge of Nicholas Sparks books while I was in 8th grade. They all typically follow the same plot line, but they all attack my feels. I think The Last Song was the one with the most tears. This wasn't my favorite book by Sparks, but this one's emotional points were the most easily connectable. This is a lot younger than his other novels and I think cancer is just a subject matter that everyone has been touched by in some way. I didn't cry during the movie though. It just wasn't as good as the book, but Liam Hemsworth was great to look at.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K Rowling (This was just the most teary eyed one for me)
This is the book that has made me weep more than anything. I think I cried the whole way through. From people dying, to Harry going to his parent's grave, to the fact that the series that introduced me to reading being fun ending, I was just a hot mess. I really want to reread the whole series because I only read this one once. I recently watched both parts of the movies for this book and I was a blubbering mess of tears.
Are you a crier when you read? What books have made you cry all the tears? I love a good ugly cry so recommendations are needed!
