    I rarely cry and never at books. Or so I thought.

    I cried at the end of The Book Thief, which I think was my first cry at/for a book, ever. I’m curious about many books you mention here, so I might do it more often now 😉

      Yeah, I got emotional at the end of that one, though I didn’t include it on this list because I already knew from page one where that book was going. So I guess when I finished it, I didn’t cry because I already knew….I don’t know.

      But yeah, let me know if you do read any of these and end up crying 😉

    The Lord Of The Rings, at the council of Elrond: “If, by my life or death …”

    A Tale Of Two Cities, from the point at which Sidney Carton pledges to do whatever he can for Lucy even after she has married Charles. Little does he know …

    • alibrarianslibrary says:

      Haha yeah, my husband came home from work right when I was finishing The Fault in Our Stars, and he was like “OMG what’s wrong?!” And I was like “NOTHING JUST GO AWAY!!!” =) That is why I warn people now. lol

I'd love to know your thoughts!
