Books that made me cry!
I'd just like to preface this by saying I'm about 95% sure that Noor is going to say something about how all the books make her cry as a preface.
This book is the OG of books that made me cry. I read this book in third grade and my poor, little 8-year-old heart could not handle it. This book made me cry so hard I couldn't even breathe. Luckily I read the end of this book at home rather than at school (where I was supposed to be reading it) because I definitely would have been sent to guidance or something. It was rough.
It's no secret that Clockwork Princess is one of my favorite books ever. I grew so attached to all the characters in The Infernal Devices series and SO MANY OF THEM DIED AND IT HURTS, OK?! I'm not even kidding, throughout this series I cried when minor characters died after being around for only one book, when semi-evil characters died, when I thought people died but then they were alive - I basically never stopped crying, let's be honest.
Champion - the most recent book to make me cry. If you've read Champion, then you know exactly how heart wrenching, and at the same time incredibly satisfying, the ending is. I HAD ALL THE FEELS. I don't think I stopped crying from the last chapter all the way through the epilogue and then some.
The ending of this book was rough for me. The plot did not exactly go my way in terms of keeping around characters that I loved (cue the crying). But it's ok, I'm mostly over it now. Mostly.
Do I even need to write anything about this one? I think a list about books that make someone cry implies The Fault in Our Stars. It was inevitable.
Unfortunately, Noor was unable to complete her picks for this weeks topic due to school things. I (Kiersten) still really wanted this post to happen, so this week is a Top Five Tuesday. However, I would like to point out that when I told Noor what the topic was, she said it would be so hard because all the books make her cry, making the preface kind of still accurate.
