Top 10 Favorite Tear Jerkers

Hey everyone! Here is my long awaited list of my Top 10 Favorite Tear Jerker books. I deliberately left no explanation or synopsis of the book, because I really really really think you should go into them knowing as little as possible, for them to pack the most punch. So, grab some tissues and enjoy!


The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks


Even though I couldn’t get through the movie to save my life, I absolutely adored this book. I’m pretty sure I was bawling by the end.

Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls


This was one of the first books that introduced me to the idea of emotions through reading.

Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom


I can’t read Mitch Albom books anymore, they just make me too emotional.

Looking for Alaska by John Green


This was the first John Green book that I ever read, and it messed me up.  I still love it to this day, actually I might re-read it.

The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein


This book is from the perspective of a dog, and it’s just so damn beautiful.

The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs


I was so surprised when this book knocked me on my butt, I’m not a big fan of knitting-but the relationships in this book are pure gold.

Before I Go by Colleen Oakley


Be prepared to shed some tears.

Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Patterson


A story about two children and their secret world shouldn’t be too heart breaking right? Well, think again.

A Child Called It by David Pelzer


This story is disturbing in so many ways.

Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult


A book about a school shooting that will mess you up for years to come.
