Top Ten Tuesday Rewind!!

Hello everyone! It's been awhile... how was your week? I was so shocked to hear about the bombing in Boston. May the victims rest in peace. On a happier note, Israel celebrated Independence Day today -wish my home a happy 65th! So this Top Ten Tuesday's (hosted by The Broke and Bookish) is rewind week- I chose top ten books that made me cry.

1. Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare- (I bring up this book waaaay too much) holds the record for the only book to make me cry more than once. In fact, I think I spent the better part of that night bawling. 

2. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins- I think it was mostly from shock. One of the most best-crafted books/series I have ever read. Right up there with Harry Potter, if you ask me. (Speaking of HG, have you seen the teaser trailer for Catching Fire?? OMG!) 
3. My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult- it is NOTHING like the movie. Read it first.

4. A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks- both the movie and the book had me weepy. Highly recommended.

5. A Bend in the Road by Nicholas Sparks

6. Dear John by Nicholas Sparks

7. The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks- Ok, can we just say this guy is the master of tears?? I mean, JEEZ. Sometimes I wanna call up his wife and be like, 'what on earth did you two go through that he can break hearts like this?!!'

8.  Looking for Alaska by John Green- I don't actually remember if  I cried, exactly, but I remember the feels. Oh, the feels. And yes, I've heard The Fault in Our Stars is even more emotional. Good Lord.

9. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows- they were happy tears:) 

10. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak 

That's it, folks! I also have been astounded by the stats this week and wanted to thank you so much for visiting and reading my blog! Hope you enjoy:))


  1. Great list! I cried on The Book Thief, HP & the Deathly Hallows & Looking for Alaska, too. I don't remember about Mockingjay, but there's a good possibility I've shed a tear... Haven't read the rest, although I totally cried on the movie A Walk to Remember.

  2. Happy Independence Day! Great list. I loved The Book Thief. I haven't got round to reading the Clockwork series yet, but I hope to soon.

  3. I love tearjerker books! I agree with Mockingjay and I got a tad emotional with The Book Thief :) Great list!

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

  4. Lots of books make me weepy. So embarrassing! I haven't read most of your picks, but lots of them are on my TBR list.

    Happy TTT!

  5. Oooh, The Book Thief... I was a bit of an emotional wreck after reading it, it was just...wow.

    I feel like the biggest loser now, I have NO idea that A Walk To Remember was based off a book. I love the movie, it's one of the first movies that made me cry and think and somewhere, I have a poem based off my feelings after watching it for the first time. This book needs to be on TBR right away!!

  6. I sob every time I read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. They're not really happy tears for me - it's when he sees his family and Sirius and Lupin again.

    BTW...good for you for being a new blogger and already having CAPTCHA turned off.
