TTT: Where Kathy does her own thing.

Top Ten Tuesday

I’m going to be very, very honest here. I don’t like today’s topic. Why? Because it’ll be the same thing everywhere and I simply don’t feel like, once again, going on about how I would love to live in Rowling’s magical world, or in Clare’s Shadowhunter world. Let alone in Maas’ Prythian, or even her Erilea. I’d probably also mention Children of Blood and Bone, The Cruel Prince and Warcross because I love those books and would love to meet the characters. [My Warcross-review is so OLD, yikes.]
Alas, I didn’t feel this weeks subject. I almost cried out of frustration when I saw it. Which brings me to today’s topic, chosen by… me!

TTT general

Today’s topic is supposed to be “Bookish Worlds I’d Want to/Never Want to Live In” but let’s just act as if we didn’t see that and go with “Books That Made Me Cry” because that’s what I feel like doing.

180 SecondsMe Before You (Me Before You, #1)They Both Die at the EndFuriously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things
The Notebook (The Notebook, #1)Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda (Creekwood, #1)Obsidio (The Illuminae Files, #3)We Are Okay

And simply because I can, here are three books I haven’t read yet, but I expect them to make me cry!

History Is All You Left MeThe Book ThiefThe Green Mile

All covers link back to Goodreads if you feel like checking them out!

What books had you crying? Ugly-crying? Or simply tearing up?

    1. Oh boy, oh boy. I just started History is All You Left Me this morning. I already teared up – AT WORK and I’m only 50 pages in. :’) I don’t think I’ll be bringing it to work tomorrow in case I go into a full-on cry, haha.


  1. I’ve honestly only cried at one book ever (Phillip Pullman’s The Amber Spyglass) and I read it when I was like 13. I think I might have to check some of these out to proove that I’m not an emotionless monster…

  2. Oh I love your choice of topic 😀 180 seconds made me cry like a baby and I didn’t expect it to, at all. It was the worst. Yet, I also loved this book so, so much. Why do we love the books that make us cry the most?!
    I haven’t read Obsidio just yet, but….I’m impatient to. Even if I’m also scared to haha 🙂

    1. I had the same with 180 Seconds, but I’m a masochist so I’m planning a reread. At least I know I have plenty of tissues stocked already, haha!
      It’s funny how people get scared because I cried over Obsidio. Seriously. I cried, but I ended up happy with the books?! Don’t be scared!

    2. I’d love to re-read it as well, but… I need a copy first haha, I got it as an e-ARC. I NEED to get a physical copy because it looks so pretty as well. 😛
      I’m SO glad you ended up happy with how it all ended though, that’s GREAT 😀 ❤

    3. Oh booo. I’ve never reread an eARC so I didn’t know they expired. Like, does that actually happen if it’s still on my Kindle? I just can’t open the thing anymore? o.o


  3. I rarely cry when it comes to books. Red Rising, yea, cried on that. Don’t recall any other.
    Green mile for me was no cryer in book, almost cryer in movie version. 😥

    I dunno why, but written words never really have the same effect on me than things i see in films.

    1. Haven’t read Red Rising yet but people have been recommending it to me all the time, haha.
      I cried SO HARD when I saw the movie, so I’m simply assuming the book will have the same effect. Now I’m curious though. 😛

      Hah, both have the same effect on me most of the time. :’)


  4. oh my gosh I’m still so sensitive to They Both Die at the End, i’m just now able to talk about it without flinching and needing tea to fix my poor hearttttt (sldkfslk I read it in January)

    1. I read it in October, so I can handle it but that book haunted me for a while as well! On one hand, I want to reread it someday but on the other.. My brain says that might not be the best idea, hahaha.

  5. Obsidio made me sob. Like not a gentle cry, kinda sob. I’m talking the heaviest sob of my life, kinda sob. But I still love it….. pain and all.

    1. Yeah 😦 it makes me sad because it’s one of the weekly things which pushes me to actually post regularly but I’ve barely taken part in any of the prompts over the past few months. I think a lot of people are just creating their own topics now

  6. Ooh! These are really sad books! I haven’t read most of them but I really want to read Obsidio because I read the first book and it was AMAZING. I couldn’t find the others though! I feel like everyone is reading Obsidio right now!

    And yay! You did your own thing! That’s cool! #Free #Rebel! A book that made me cry is Allegiant!

    1. The whole trilogy is AMAZING! I hope you get your hands on Gemina and Obsidio soon!
      Haha, Obsidio is all over the place since it recently came out. 😛

      Always love being a rebel. 😛
      Ooh! I read it, but can’t really recall crying. It’s been a while since I read it though.
