message 1: by Telle (new)

Telle i really love the bridge to terabithia......
it makes me imagine things immaginable like the 2 friends in this book.....


message 2: by Erin (new)

Erin But they die.

I love it too! But the whole world (except you) hates it because she dies!


message 4: by Erin (new)

Erin SHE DIES!!!!


message 5: by [deleted user] (new)

SO WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO DIE SOMEDAY TOO BUT THAT HASN'T RUINED ANY **** STORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


message 6: by Erin (new)

Erin Well you can make the story of my life and people are going to be sobbing about it later I can bet you! They will call it "sad" and "awful" and you can tell me their reactions when you come up there with me!!!


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

Who says you're going to die first?


message 8: by Erin (new)

Erin Well if you want me to die so bad I'll just kill myself! Who has my suiside hotline card?! (for those of you who go around looking at peoples profiles for hints about suiside I am joking)


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

ERIN! What did Mrs. H say about killing yourself??


message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

That's right she didn't say anything!


message 11: by Erin (new)

Erin 'Cause she doesn't care!!


message 12: by [deleted user] (new)

Actually I think she'd be happy if we kicked the bucket.


message 13: by Erin (new)

Erin Sad but true.


message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

You know what else is sad we are having a discussion about suicide/death on a public page...


message 15: by Erin (new)

Erin Ya...


message 16: by Sabrina (new)

Sabrina "13 Reasons Why" , was one of the best books and saddest, that i have read in a long time, the author is crazy good.


message 17: by Erin (new)

Erin OMG I love that book! Sad though.


message 18: by Issy (new)

Issy New Moon is sad.... sad in that it is so lame.
But Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was sad, I cried every time someone died.


message 19: by Erin (new)

Erin I was sobbing through the whole book! I can't beleive they killed so many of them.


message 20: by Issy (new)

Issy I know, but it made it more realistic, if there really was a magic battle like that a lot of people could have died in so many different ways.


message 21: by Emilie[-MLE-] (new)

Emilie[-MLE-] Deathly Hallows is sad, but I think the saddest book if all time is The Book Thief...it's absolutely beautiful but you'll be sitting in a puddle of tears for the last 60-ish pages.


message 22: by Erin (new)

Erin I was crying so hard during the Book Thief!!! So good though!


message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

Thirteen Reasons Why...talk about a book that'll make you cry yourself to sleep when you finally finish it late the night you started it. :P Seriously, it's not possible to feel nothing reading that book.


message 24: by Manon (new)

Manon Wow! "Marley and me" is 4th while "Les Misérables" is 21th ...
...
...
...


message 25: by Echo (new)

Echo I don't remember The Host being sad... but I may have blocked it from my memory since I didn't really like it.
And I think I'm going to have to seek out Thirteen Reasons Why now....


message 26: by Kenadee (new)

Kenadee Castleman a child called it made me cry everytime


message 27: by Jeremy (new)

Jeremy I'm suprised at this list. I haven't read many of these books but, based on the ones of these I have read, I haven't found them to be very sad. I would put Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand at the top of this list, or top 3 at least.


message 28: by Ellena (last edited May 22, 2016 11:39AM) (new)

Ellena I purused this list and didn't see The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. Such a sad book. Maybe I missed it but if not please add this one. I cried buckets. The Nightingale
