Top Ten Four Books That Made You Cry

I'm not much of a crier. It takes something big to make that happen...or it pertains to animals. I blame Old Yeller and Bambi for that! Cruel I tell you, cruel, anyway...Animals are the biggest tearjerkers. These books that are listed really got to me because they had a special element to them.

1. Marley and Me by John Grogan

3. Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo w/ Lynn Vincent
Not about an animal, but a little boy. Goodness, kids get to me too!

4. Homer's Odyssey by Gwen Cooper

Each I enjoyed despite the tears! :-)


  1. Marley and Me was so emotional for me! I can't believe I didn't include it one my list.

    I see you are like me- animal books bring on some tears.

  2. It is pretty obvious that you are an animal lover. I recall crying for Marley and Me, too. Have you read Racing in the Rain? It is another wonderful, tear-worthy animal story.

  3. Heaven is For Real didn't make me cry but it's one of those books I think of often, always recommend, and can never forget.

  4. before than read Marley & Me by John Grogan, i watched the movie… and when i red the book i cried a lot less…


Thanks for stopping by. Leave a word, leave a line, I would love to hear what you have to say.
