15 Day Book Blogging Challenge: Day 5 - Tear Jerkers

Hosted by April at Good Books and Good Wine, I'm in love with this challenge!April has come up with some fabulous challenge questions.  If you want to participate, just click on over to Good Books and Good Wine and get listing! 

The challenge linkys are open for 6 months, so if you are like me (i.e. disorganised), you can post whenever you like!

Today's Challenge is to recommend a tear jerker and it's actually an easy one for me, because there is only one book that has ever reduced me to major eye-leakage, sobbing and sniffling:

And that's Me Before You by Jojo Moyes.  But this isn't just a sad book, it's also uplifting, funny and the characters are amazing.  This book has something for everyone, but make sure you bring the tissues.

What tear-jerkers can you recommend to a hard-hearted reader like me?  


  1. Hmm Jessica Shirvington's Between The Lives had me sobbing pretty hard by the end.

  2. Oh man, I had this one out from the library and didn't get to it. I can't remember the last book that had me seriously boo hoo'ing. I'll have to think about that!

  3. The biggest tearjerker for me would be If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch, I think I cried at least once in every chapter of that book. I haven't read this one but I really want to!

  4. A woman in my book club recommended this one as well...but I've been afraid of crying all night and going to work the next day with puffy eyes!

  5. I actually do have a copy of this one but haven't managed to read it yet. :( Everyone says it made them bawl their eyes out so... I'm pretty sure I'll do the same once I pick it up. :D

  6. YUP. I know you said you don't cry easily, and neither do I, but this one got me. I made it almost the whole way through, but she got me in the end. THIS BOOK.
