Books That Make Me Cry

Time for another list.

I don’t have many books that make me cry.
They’re probably very traditional but here they are…
(when I say cry – I mean a lump in my throat, a constricted feeling around my heart and a few heartfelt tears – I don’t think any book has ever made me sob uncontrollably).

Little Women and Good Wives by LM Alcott
Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery
Seven Little Australians by Ethel Turner
The Bridge To Terabithia by Katherine Paterson

Looking For Alibrandi by Marlena Marchetta
The Power of One by Bryce Courtney
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Room by Emma Donoghue.

Herbert The Brave Sea Dog by Robyn Benton

The Story of Ping by Marjorie Flack
Heart in the Bottle by Oliver Jeffers
Harry and Hopper by Margaret Wild
