It's happened to me more than once. I always get scared that someone will walk in on me crying into a book, alone and distraught.
Order of the Phoenix and My Sister's Keeper. Oh, and when I found out what Harry Potter named his children, because I couldn't believe his cruelty.
Good thing he didn't have a forth kid. Hedwig Dobby Potter is unisex, but it doesn't have much else going for it. Poor, poor Ginny.
Dammit, Ginny! I'm naming the damn kids!
I think you might be my soulmate. Those were the two I was going to say!
There's a strong possibility that crying because of the same books means we're soulmates. I read that somewhere on the Internet, so it must be true.
Was the place you read it on the Internet right here?
The boy in striped pajamas. Holy shit that books so sad.
Flowers for Algernon.
Omigosh I just finished that one! It was so sad :(
It was in class too, and guys don't normally tear up at school.......
But that book made me realize that being mentally disabled is bad, but being mentally disabled and having no one is terrible. And that people can really suck when they want to.
even though I've read the series about five times, I always start tearing up once Snape gives Harry his memories.
A Child Called It made me cry like a baby. And I didn't just cry, I ugly cried...I'm talkin snot, puffy eyes, the works.
I cried in Looking for Alaska...
Mockingjay, the 5th, 6th, and 7th Harry Potters, The Last Olympian, Mockingbird, and the beginning of Shine.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
The Book Thief.
That was an unreasonably sad ending. Seriously, wtf?
So B. It, Harry Potter and The Boy Calles It.
Oh my God, So B. It, I'd completely forgotten that one!
So B. It?! Are you serious?! That book was awful! I actually thought it was funnier than it was sad.
When Snape died, and gave Harry his memories, My Sister's Keeper, and some others that I can't remember right now, but I know something happened.
Nobody cried when Lennie died in Of Mice and Men? No hearts people.
OMG I bawled at that. Like, legit, that book was fucking sad. :(
Where the Red Fern Grows and Old Yeller. Yeah, I'm a dog person.
Unwind, although I didn't cry during the actual book. I started reading it after school and ended up finishing it in one sitting, staggering off to bed at eleven and then dreaming about the darn thing. When I woke up I sobbed.
I cried during the unwinding scene.
I never cry while reading books, but I've cried during a few movies. Basically any time a full grown man breaks down on screen, I'm a goner. (e.g. Schindler's List, Harry Potter 7p2, and more recently, 50/50)
A Boy Called It and Shy are the two I can think of right now, but I know there have been heaps of others like autobiography's of survivors of the Holocaust.
I cried while reading A Boy Called It.
Um, I can't think of any others, but at the end of The Green Mile (both book and movie) I bawled.
One Day, Mockingjay, Thirteen Reasons Why, Monsters of Men... Why do I only read sad books?
Monsters of Men, by Patrick Ness?
Yup. And the Knife of Never Letting Go, too, come to think of it.
Oh, man. When Manchee died... Those were really good books.
Yeah, definitely the Manchee thing. I read the second half or so all at once, at around 2 in the morning, and when Aaron was STILL alive, coming down the river when they were SO CLOSE, I hit something really, really hard.
Gah I couldn't stand him or the mayor. But by the end I kind of felt bad for Davey.
I always kind of forget about Davey, which is ridiculous, but thinking about him makes me sad. I REALLY feel bad for Lee.
I forgot about Lee. I loved most of those characters, I really thought Wilf was a cool guy. The sky? Angered me at a lot of points though.
I think everyone angered me at least once, except maybe Ben. But I dunno.
write a book about it
What part of Mockingjay?
When Prim died and when Katniss was like despondent back in District 12, especially when she was screaming at Buttercup... although I guess that still kind of goes with Prim.
Marley & Me, Angus and Sadie, Where the Red Fern Grows, Each Little Bird That Sings... Pretty much any book where a dog dies.
When Remus and Tonks were announced dead, and (I was pretty young at the time...) the end of the Amber Spyglass in His Dark Materials.
Mockingjay, because just like at the end of every chick flick, I thought to myself, "I am going to die alone".
I bet no one remembers this book, but The Cay. Also, during the Kite Runner, The Host (don't judge), Charlotte's Web, and a whole bunch of other books no one has probably even heard of.
I remember The Cay. We had to read it in like, fifth grade.
I cried in Mockingjay in the parachute bombs part.
I didn't cry when Prim died because my friend ruined that part for me before I started reading, but the part where Katniss was mourning with Buttercup got me sniffling. The part where Mags(I think that's her name) threw herself into the mist for Finnick was also sad.
try reading a book about a dog being shot while the dad is being taken away from his african american family in the south in the 1800s. yeah its deep.
I remember that book! I read it in 5th grade but I don't remember the name... I didn't really cry, I just felt this dull sense of depression. Yeeah.
i would laugh
hedwig and dobby!
As crazy as this sounds, I've cried reading a couple books in the past, but I don't think I ever have cried watching a movie.
I cry in almost every book I read that has a sad part, it's insane. I get way into it.
You would think the stories we read in English would make me cry. No joke, at least one person has died at the end of everyone of them. And we've read about 10 different short stories...
I cried reading Fang...
Summer of the monkeys. We read it in the sixth grade and something about the fairy ring where that girls legs untwisted and started to work again and she just ran and ran and ran. I think that's the most I've ever cried reading a book. Hp's obvious though. :)
Also, a land remembered. Another middle school reading assignment. I'm pretty sure not one human or animal was still alive at
The only book I have ever cried at is Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman. That was seriously sad.
Well, yes, but I was eight XD
Pet Semetary made me cry. The movie made me laugh though.
I cried whenever Lorana lost her baby when she went back in time and I cried when I thought Fiona was lost forever. And then I cried when I learned I had to wait for the sequel to Dragon's Time to come out.
Brave New World made me cry, and it's been my favorite ever since.
I always cry to books about Sadako Sasaki, especially since its a true story.
I cried for an hour after reading Gone with the Wind. Also Peter Pan, Of Mice and Men, and I'm sure a hundred others. I'm a crier. :P
Harry Potter 5,6, and 7
The Hunger Games and Mockingjay (When Rue dies and at the very end of Mockingjay. I seriously wonder if it's just the lullaby that gets to me).
Handle With Care
aaand The Great Gilly Hopkins, when I was 8. Probably some others I'm forgetting, I cry VERY easily.
Art Spiegelman's MAUS. crying forever.
I very rarely ever cry, but The Outsiders kills me every time.
Tuesdays with Morrie. I didn't have a chance from the beginning.
The one that comes to mind is The Time Traveller's Wife.
The first time I read How to Cheat a Dragon's Curse I sobbed. Give me a break, I was eleven at the time and my favourite character was dying. Though that series has made me teary-eyed quite a few times since.
