One book.

It's called Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Chapter 23, Malfoy Manor.

Ditto. I can't believe how hard I cried: I rarely do that when I read a book. What makes it worse, my brother (who hasn't read HP) walked in then... he must've thought I was some sort of freak, sobbing over a book. I don't care. It was from the heart.

I also teared up at the end of Our Town, when the girl dies and her husband is completely heart-broken. So sad

Yup, that's me. I get very involved in what I read all the time which, admittedly, can be very emotionally difficult for me to get through, but I looooove reading. In other words...I cry ALL.THE.TIME.

Re: Have you ever cried while reading a book

I actually just finished a really emotional book last night that had me crying so much that I had to put the book aside because I couldn't read the words anymore. I think I have mastered Oprah's ugly cry..

The book I read was I'm not her by Janet Gurtler and it just really got to me. Her new book is coming out in October and I hope she's able to make a connection to the reader that's just as intense as this one was.

A couple of weeks ago I was really in the mood for crying books and I ordered quite a few that will (hopefully) make me cry while reading. I don't mind crying while reading at all - it makes it clear that the author of the story knows how to write to connect to his/her audience. I love that.

Re: Have you ever cried while reading a book

recent books I've read that made me cry

Marley and Me. Not really sad til the end. My mum walked in on me reading it, and thought somebody had died

Adrian Mole: The Prostrate years. Sad, sad, sad. I've been reading Adrian Mole books since I was 12- younger than Adrian himself was in the first book. You become attached to characters (as you know ) and finding out that he had "prostrate" cancer, as everyone insisted on calling it, was heartbreaking.

Thanks for the memories by Cecelia Ahern. I think that this book is better written than PS I love you, although I absolutely adore that book (which makes me cry too), but Thanks For the Memories is really sad.

Re: Have you ever cried while reading a book

I haven't before, but a line in "Mockingjay" got me terribly close to tears.

That whole book is a huge tear- and anger-fest if you ask me.

Re: Have you ever cried while reading a book

All the Potter books have a at least one scene that makes me tear up. The Deathly Hollows has moments where I sobbed, especially when Dobby died and Harry decided to sacrifice himself. Even after reading it twice, watching the movie twice, I still sob like a little baby.

Re: Have you ever cried while reading a book

The last two books I've read have made me cry, and I'm usually not much of a big crier when it comes to books. First book, Clockwork Prince, there was one scene at the end that was just so heartbreaking for one character.
Spoiler: show
Will finds out he can finally confess his feelings to Tessa, and then she tells him that she's getting married to Jem, Will's best friend!


The other book is The Hunger Games, I cried when
Spoiler: show
Rue died.

Re: Have you ever cried while reading a book

I can add a book to my (still pretty short) books-that-made-me-cry-list: The Fault in our Stars by John Green. Amazing.

Re: Have you ever cried while reading a book

I bawwed manlytears during chapter 34 of DH. When he was reminscing, so was I over the last two months that I had read the series over, and once I finished the book I felt like part of my life was over.Then I stopped being a ***** and started being awesome.

Re: Have you ever cried while reading a book

The Time Traveller's Wife made me tear up at one point and cry at another:

Spoiler: show
The first is when Henry ended up in the Cage, that was so horrible. And the latter is when he died. I think the book should have stopped there. For me anyways, that's where I lost interest.

I cried while reading Deathly Hallows, The Hunger Games series, The Diary of Anne Frank, and My Sister's Keeper.

Pet books will do it, won't they? I read a book called "Merle's Door" about a dog named Merle and his relatoinship to his owner, and yeah, when the dog died it was so sad.

Deathly Hallows did me in too, specifically, towards the end of "The Prince's Tale". Snape's life was just too much for me.

The end of the Lord of the Rings trilogy also always gets to me, no matter how many times I reread that series...

Re: Have you ever cried while reading a book

I used to never cry with books (or movies for that matter) and then I read Deathly Hallows, cried once and somehow since then I cry so much more easily while reading books. I cried with Deathly Hallows when Harry was at the graveyard standing at his parents' grave.
And another book that makes me cry every single time I read it is Pushkin's 'Evgeni Onegin'. I always cry at the end because it's so sad...

Re: Have you ever cried while reading a book

Another one that really got me recently (really got me: I couldn't believe how hard I cried!) was at the end of Plain Kate. I didn't even like the story that much, but...
Spoiler: show
I love cats, so when Taggle died and then lost his voice I couldn't hold it together. Pathetic, I know.

Re: Have you ever cried while reading a book

I cried three times while reading a book:

In The Lord of the Rings Two Towers when Sam...
Spoiler: show
thinks Frodo has been killed by... Shelob? The giant spider? And he takes the ring to carry on with the mission.
So gut wrenching! Sam, the unsung hero of LOTR!

In HBP during Dumbledore's funeral but there were extenuation circumstance: my grandpa's funeral had been literally the week before so I was already an emotional wreck.

In DH when Harry carves into the headstone "Here lies Dobby, a free elf" Damn! I'm tearing up just typing it out here! I can't read DH without crying at that part every time. Dobby was the most annoying little squirt and I really didn't like him much throughout the series but the way he was honored in death was just so touching.

Re: Have you ever cried while reading a book

Of course I have! Here are a few times I can remember offhand:

The ending of Lord of the Rings.

Several times during Deathly Hallows - most notably, Fred's death. I just didn't see that one coming!

The last several pages of Mockingjay.

The "revelation" towards the end of Till We Have Faces.

Re: Have you ever cried while reading a book

I do - especially when I can connect personally with what a character is going through - as if the character in the book is going down the same path I've already taken, making the same mistakes I've already made. It is quite insightful though and helps in resolving past issues that haven't quite closed off within my mind.
