Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday 
post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers. (Meme description taken from the broke and the bookish)

Books That Made You Cry

1.) Betrayal by P.C. Cast- I cried like someone had punched me in the face. I vividly remember my sister calling me from her apartment to ask me a question. She thought my parents had a fight or somebody died. I couldn't even compose myself when talking to her, I was sobbing so hard. I also remember screaming "no, no, no, no!" in a pitiful tone as the tears streamed down my face.

2.) Shadowkiss by Richelle Mead- This also made me cry like there had been a death in the family. I was so upset and hysterical that I mourned for three days. I swore I would never read the series again after that book, it was that depressing. It only took me... three, almost four years to break that promise. I still have my reservations though, nasty little things, spoilers are.

3.) My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult- I don't remember if I had a breakdown reading this. I think it was more crying silently while turning the pages.

4.) A Rose for Melinda by Lurlene McDaniel- Well, actually anything by her will get the tears flowing. The worst of it though happened during Melinda. This was the first book I read with death in it and I have never forgotten it. Every single time, no matter how hard I steel myself, I will cry ugly, snotty tears when I read it.

5.) Shiver Trilogy by Maggie Stiefvater- The ending of the first book made me cry in happiness. The ending of the second had me crying in disturbing, painful, awful sobs. The middle of the third had me crying with mixed emotions. I mean seriously, what talent is that to have people's eyes going off like faucets through three books?

6.) This Side of the Grave by Jeaniene Frost- Crying. For thirty gosh durn pages, I was crying, that is all I have to say.

7.) The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins- I don't exactly remember getting emotional about it, but I have a feeling that I did cry at least once, the first time I read it.

8.) Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series by Anne Brashares- The fifth book. That is all I need to say. I was crying for over half the book. My heart was broken at almost every juncture. I just, man, that book emotionally scarred me. The rest of the series was fairly emotional, I cried through ever single one, but the last book killed me.

9.) The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine- Again, I don't remember crying over this one, but my mom tells me I did. Mainly, I just remember being scared of the specter monsters luring me off a cliff. (Which is absolutely ridiculous since I live in FL, where there are no cliffs to be found.)

10.) For a Few Demons More by Kim Harrison- I have a feeling I cried, or was at least sad, but I have no memory of it.

Honorable Mentions:

Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins (crying in happiness)

Happy Reading,
