Like Leslie, I need to add one The Amber Spyglass I have never cried so much at a book. I had to be consoled!

This list is very Nicholas Sparks centred :)

I noticed that too.

message 10: by Beth (new)

Beth | 508 comments I just finished The Fault in our Stars and was bawling like a two-old who just had her bottle taken away.
I made the stock on Kleenex go up when I read "Me Before You" by JoJo Moyes.
I also cried during The Help.
I loved Angela's Ashes.
I'm not a Nicolas Sparks fan so I guess I missed the opportunity to cry through a whole bunch of books!
