Top 5 Books That Made Me Cry

5. I Was Here - Gayle Forman

This book is about a girl Cody whose friend (Meg) committed suicide, it follows her along the journey of finding out why Meg did it. The plot keeps you on your A game, it kept me guessing right until it was close to finding out, which is what makes a great book. This one is at the bottom of my top 5 because I cried but I didn't cry enough for it to be ranked higher. I would definitely read this book if you're in the mood for a few tears. 

4. Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

Heir of Fire is the third book in the Throne of Glass series. The main protagonist is Celeana Sardothien, the King of Ardarlan's Assassin, the book takes us on her journey to find out who she truly is all the while facing some of her biggest fears. If she can do this, she will most likely become Ardalan's biggest threat. Heir of Fire gives you all the feels and is truly an amazing story. I did cry quite a bit, there may have been a whole packet of tissues used. If you're wanting to read this though, make sure you've read the ones before it: Throne of Glass, The Assassin's Blade, Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire and then Queen of Shadows. 

3. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters will forever have the most heart-breaking love story. Hazel has terminal cancer and is just going along in life waiting till the day that she'll die. That is, until she meets Augustus at a cancer support group. He shows her how to live life again all the while they are falling more deeply in love with each other. Surprisingly, this isn't no. 1 on my list because I did ugly cry whilst reading this but honestly it's worth it because it's such an amazing love story and not one that you can easily forget. 

"Okay? Okay."

2. All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

"A girl who learns to live from a boy who wants to die."

Finch is someone who is always thinking of death and Violet is counting away the days until she can leave the small town whilst grieving her sister's death. They both meet each other on the school's bell tower ledge, it's not clear who saved who, and from there their friendship grows. It's a spell-binding story that left me not wanting to put the book down. It was the way that the characters came to be people that I loved that really hit me in the feels, it made no. 2 on the list because I couldn't stop crying for ages and I still can't stop thinking about it. 

1. The Assassin's Blade by Sarah J. Maas

This book has 5 novellas which are all about Celeana Sardothien which prequel the rest of the Throne of Glass series. The novellas help us to better understand how Celeana became who she is and the sort of missions she used to go on when she was Arobynn King of Assasin's protegee. The heartbreak I got from reading the novellas but mainly the fifth one is what made this book no 1. People joe saying that they went through a box of tissues but I seriously went through about 2. I still well up thinking about what Celaena was put through and how her trust was betrayed.
