5 Books to Read if You Want to Cry

If you’re someone who doesn’t really cry even during the most “emotional” scenes then this one is for you.

1. The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

If you’re into World War Two stories, feminism, violence, and rebellions then The Nightingale is a perfect read for you.

I’ve read this very book while I was in school and tell you what, I seriously did cry in the corner amd my friends would look at me strangely. That’s the problem with reading in public, guys.

2. My Oxford Year by Julia Whelan

If you’re into proffesor and student relantionship, family matters, and true love then you’re destined to read this fella.

I’ve read My Oxford Year last summer, I sobbed hard as I read the last few chapters of it and tried very hard to stop myself because I don’t want to wake my sister up. Nevertheless, the plot itself, if you want to read the synopsis is so much more than that.

3. The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

If you’re the type of reader who loves history, friendship, and LGBT stories then what are you waiting for?

Of all the books I’ve read, this is the least expected book that I would cry very, very hard. I was seriously sobbing so hard to the point I forced myself to stop a minute.

4. A Man Called Ove by Fredrick Backman

If you’re someone who loves grumpy slash hilarious old man, has a thing for annoying cat, and emotional past then this is the perfect book for you.

To be fair, I don’t know what possessed me to give this fella a shot, I mean, I usually only read YA novels but boy did I did not regret it. After finishing the book, my tears were flowing down my cheeks yet I still have a smile on my face due to how beautiful the book was.

5. If You Come Softly

If you’re into books that tackles about kids experiencing racism and short story then this book will surely be you’re next favorite.

I would be lying if I said I absolutely love the book. I mean, I have issues with it, so many yet after reading the plot twist, I don’t know what happened to me and what the hell just happened to the point I have to read the shocking part for at least three times. After digesting what happened, my tears already fell. And nope, I did not sobbed.

That’s it, folks. Now, after reading all these books, if you still haven’t cry even a single tear then let me ask you, are you a child of Satan? Are your heart made of stone? Kidding! Haha, anyways, hope you like my book recommendations.

Let me know the books that made you cry!



I am a typical 17-year-old reader and I love to read books and if you have a problem with that then why are you even here?
