Why I love books that break me + recommendations to make you sob at night

I have been reading for quite a long time now and I started noticing a pattern in the books I choose, lately. If some people shy away from emotions, books that will make them sob for hours on end, even on public transportation, I have a weird tendancy to actually GO TOWARDS THESE BOOKS.

Let’s be honest here: if you tell me a book will make me cry, I’m 140% more enclined to add it to my TBR.

πŸ’” Why I love books that BREAK me

Thing is, as much as I hate these kind of books, especially when I’m holding them, reading the words and seeing them blur right in front of my eyes because I’m crying… Whenever I close the book, I realize that… yeah, as stupid as it all was, as MAD AS I AM that I cried yet again on public transportation because of THIS DAMN BOOK… Well. The book made me feel something.

It’s crazy, isn’t it? The way we’re able to read words on a page, get away and hallucinate for hours on end while reading these simple words. The way some authors are able to grab these very words, get them out of the page, tugging on all of your feelings, eyeballs or whatever and manage to draw actual tears from you. You’re just READING WORDS on a page, yet you’re feeling all of the emotions. That always striked me as weird. That always striked me as all kinds of amazing. (Also, to be honest, this is kind of a writers’ goal. Managing to make people cry with my writing)

So, yeah. I LOVE books that break me. Whether it’s because the situation is just so awful, the world-building is fabulous and just so plain wrong, the characters are so adorable and they don’t deserve this massive alien space-ship or whatever falling down on them. Whether it’s about some terrible illness or just someone going away. Sometimes, because you relate to it on a personal level, or just because you manage to relate to the great characters in the story, see the unfairness of the world in-between the pages… Well, before you know it, you’re crying.

And before you know it, you’re actually happy to be crying. Feeling something.

When I cry, I know it’s a book I will remember.

I couldn’t resist. This is a gif from the amazing Your Name. You know, just watch this. This should make you cry as well. #cruelrecommendations

πŸ“š Feeling emotional? Need a good cry? Grab on some tissues, here comes the recommendations!

Since I’m really nice and I don’t want to be the only one sobbing, I obviously have some recommendations ready for you. I won’t tell you why these books made me cry, some of these are pretty obvious, some others not, unless you’ve already read them.

Side note: I often cry while reading books, so… yeah, don’t blame me if you don’t cry, okay? Okay.

Side note nΒ°2: Before you ask: YES. I cried while reading all of these, and more I’m probably forgetting here.

Side note nΒ°3: And YES. ACTUAL-TEARS-falling-down-my-face-crying. #oops

I rated all of these books 4 stars or more. Crying apparently influence the way I’m rating books?! I LIKE EMOTIONS. #oops

Do you like book that make you feel ALL THE EMOTIONS, or do you avoid them?! Do you cry while reading books or not at all? Am I the only very emotional reader here? Does TEARS influence your rating?!

What is the last book that made you cry? Do you have any books recommendations for me? Let me know your thoughts in comments!

  1. I admit that I never cry while reading books. This is why I am a lizard person with no emotions. But I have a theory that I’m like this because I didn’t cry while reading Deathly Hollows because I didn’t actually believe that those characters were legit dead so I subconsciously swore to myself to never cry again out of respect for not crying at my fave caharacter’s death… Does that even make ANY sense??
    Anyway I think I have to check some of the books on this list (that I didn’t already read) out! Who knows maybe I’ll actually shed a tear or two this time.

  2. “Since I’m really nice and I don’t want to be the only one sobbing…” – Marie, while she’s being the evil queen who wants to make us all sob.
    This post is everything and so relateble since painful books are some of the best books you can read. And I fully agree with you when you say crying influence the ratings. I feel like whenever a book makes me feel a very intense emotion (even hatred), it’s going to get more from me than a book that felt flat, didn’t provoke anything in me.
    The list was very good, I’ve read some of those and they were very heart-breaking. I felt so frustrated and sad with Mockingjay, I feel the movies didn’t make me feel that way, at all, though. And that’s sad because if they followed the book and didn’t split it in two movies, it would have been so, so good.
    I really need to read More Happy than Not right now!!! And also more Morgan Matson books because she seems like such an amazing author and I feel ashamed that I’ve only read Since You’ve Been Gone from her.
    Lovely post as always, Marie! ❀

    1. Well… I don’t want to be the only one sobbing, you get this, right?! hahaha πŸ˜› Also, books that make me cry like a baby are the best kind of books, they made me feel all the things, so… I want all of you to feel the same way. I’m not evil. I’m really nice πŸ˜›

      I 100% agree: when a book made me feel things, I’ll probably rate it higher. I’m here to FEEL things πŸ˜› (unless if I hated the book, because it was cruel and pointless and the characters were the worst, I’d give that 1 star or less)

      I understand your feelings – I thought that the movies were quite well-done and faithful to the adaptation, but the last two didn’t manage to grab be the way the previous movies AND most importantly, the book, did. It made me sad :/

      Morgan Matson is SUCH an amazing author – what did you think of Since You’ve Been Gone? You should read all of her other books,they’re incredible ❀

  3. Hello Marie πŸ™‚
    I am the same way! I also love books that make me cry (or feel emotions in general). I believe that this is a sign that it is a good book, because it means that the authors’ words are able to stir emotions in the reader. Books that make me cry are guaranteed at least 4 stars for me as well πŸ™‚

  4. You are the second person to suggest Your Name and I’m told it’ll punch me in all the feels.

    I prefer being surprised by a book. I hate being told that a book will tear me apart because it makes me nervous. However, if I go into it without anticipating the punches then I can embrace it a lot easier. I love those unexpected books that just hits you when you least expect it.

    I have gotten incredibly emotional over a lot of books, but I’d say the one that got to me the most and still has a hold on me is I’ll Meet You There. There was a moment when reading Josh’s POV that hit me so hard I didn’t see it coming. I was so invested in Josh and Skylar’s story and willing them to find each other because after all they’ve been through they deserved to find happiness. Ugh, I need to re-read this book.

      Oh I didn't think about that when writing my post, but you're totally right. I love being punched in the feels by surprise, these kind of books where you don't expect it to happen are the best. They leave an even bigger mark.

      Ohh yes. I'll Meet You There in an amazing choice, I loved it so much. Josh's parts of the story made me tear up as well, it just hurt me to read that. I love this book ❀

I both look forwards to books that I know will make me cry and dread reading them simply because I know they’re going to make me cry. πŸ™‚ It’s kind of amazing that there are books that can move you to tears with just their words, I always think that’s kind of special and it makes an incredibly talented author as well.
    Also great recommendations. I haven’t read many of these books but the ones I have are definitely ones I cried over, especially The Sky is Everywhere. The last book that made me cry was They Both Die at the End, and one of the books I’d highly recommend which is definitely an emotional read is The Song of Achilles. That book destroyed me!

    I vividly remember finishing Mockingjay on a train once – it wasn’t even the first time I’d read it, so I knew what was coming! I was trying so hard not to cry (you know when you try to blink really fast to make the tears go away and it doesn’t work at all?). Don’t even get me started on The Fault in Our Stars! Hours. It took me hours to stop crying.

  11. Oh yes, I definitely agree with you here!! Being broken over a book means that it makes me FEEL, and when I feel something, that means it’s definitely a good book! You’re right — there’s something so magical about the way that authors can stir such deep emotion in us, just by using words!!

    ACOL, A List of Cages, and More Happy Than Not are all books I can definitely see the tears over. (Except… I’ve only cried over like four books my whole life ahhaha.) Also??? Marie Lu is a QUEEN at emotional manipulation and breaking me — especially the last books of the Legend and The Young Elites trilogy!! (TYE #3 is one of the four books that’s made me cry ahaha.)

  19. I sometimes cry in books? It depends. It’s so cathartic though. I guess I good book should have an emotional impact on the readers, because in 20 years I’m not going to remember plot or character names, but I will remember FEELS. Also, I think it makes sense that you gave higher ratings to books that made you cry? If emotion/sad things are badly written, then they’re not going to influence me. But a book that has strongly written, emotional scenes will probably just have well-written scenes in general? Of the books here that I’ve read, a lot are very sad, although I can’t think of any that made me cry. Lovely post as usual ❀ ❀

    1. THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY, Shannon ❀ I don't really know WHY we're like this – I feel so weird, telling people I like books that make me cry and break my heart into a million pieces. I feel like I'm crazy, at times, ahah.

      OH YES!! I forgot The Serpent King here, but I have read this one and… well, I didn't see THAT coming. I cried so much.
      THANK YOU so so much for all of these recommendations, I'm going to add all of these to my TBR right this second – Paper Butterflies sounds really good and also so… intense. I'm curious about that one now. And The Memory Book, I am LOVING that synopsis already.
      I should maybe try and watch The 100, then… I'm ALL for the feels in tv shows, as well ahah πŸ˜›
      thank you so, so much for your sweet comments and all of the recs!! ❀

  25. Okay, so I must admit here that it’s very rare that I have cried while reading any book.. Umm let me think! Well yeah TFIOS is definitely in the list but it’s just that reading the words don’t make me cry actually as opposed to seeing its adaptation. I remember how hard I cried while watching TFIOS.

    But yes, I do love these kind of books which make you feel all the things. And the last book that I can remember which made me a little emotional was You Loved Me At My Darkest in You Loved Me series by Evie Harper.

    1. Sometimes, movies make me cry too ahah, I cried like a baby when I first saw the TFIOS movie – as much as I did for the book πŸ˜›

      Ohh thank you so, so much for the recommendation, I’ll check out this book πŸ˜€
      Thank you!! ❀

    1. Well, these are pretty powerful books ❀ I have read all of them, except for Goodbye Days. I feel like that one is quite intense, but I reaally want to read it πŸ™‚
      Thank you so much for your comment!! ❀ ❀

  26. I also love books that make me cry for the exact same reason, they make me FEEL stuff. I am a crier, I almost always cry during a sad scene. I love most of the ones you mentioned! And they all made me cry too! I haven’t read A List of Cages yet and I need to get to that soon. Ooo, the last book that made me cry was “Turtles All the Way Down” by John Green.

    1. Oh thank you for saying that, ahah, I always cry at sad scenes, in books, in movies, everything ahah, I’m a crier as well πŸ™‚
      You should read A List of Cages if you can, it was a really great book ❀
      Turtles! I loved Green's latest book, I did not cry but it made me feel all.the.things. It was quite an intense read! πŸ™‚

  27. I think it’s common knowledge that we all love books that do us in like that πŸ˜€

    On a related note, I have just finished His Dark materials and the ending just completely annihilated me. I’m posting a review on December 1st. Have you read it already?? If so, TALK TALK TALK. OH WAIT YOU HAVE READ IT, TALK TALK TALK TALK TAAAAAALK
    All I can say is WHY, why why, 10th Doctor all over again!!!

    As for crying, okay.. I say they make me cry. But I just mean inside πŸ˜€ I’m not much of a crier. But I still get the feels πŸ˜€ I only pokerface at them πŸ˜€ but they still kill me inside xD

    You cried at Delirium though? For me it was such a weak 2 stars, could not relate and it was just… All tropes and predictability. And loads of contradictions.

    Good post πŸ™‚

    1. HIS DARK MATERIALSSS WHY HAVE YOU ONLY READ IT NOW??? It is one of my favorite series of all times, I am here for all the fangirling and broken hearts and tears. The ending is just…. MY HEART IS CRUSHED.

      Yeah, the first time I read Delirium, I cried at the end. It was a mix of everything, the writing, the situation, the characters, it broke my heart. I know it wasn’t a book for everyone, though, so I understand if you didn’t love it πŸ™‚

      Thank you so, so much for your sweet comment!! ❀

  28. OH OH OH!

    Can I make a bookish recommendation to you that broke my heart a little?

    THE HEARTS WE STOLE by Emily Lloyd-Jones

    You wouldn’t think that it would give you feels, but it does. ESPECIALLY THE END.

    I don’t cry often while reading books. I should make a collection of the ones that break me, actually, and maybe I will go do that. But this one was really lovely, and I think it’s wonderful that you drift toward sad books as well as happy ones. Life isn’t always happy-go-lucky after all. πŸ™‚
