I didn't know Lovely Bones was coming to a movie? I'm surprised! Sounds great!
I'm actually hard to "move", but there really are some topics that really get me going.
A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving (many times throughout the novel)
Calling Home by Janna McMahon (the last 20 pages)
Catch by Will Leitch (the ending and once in the middle when he was realizing that his life was NOT what he expected it to be)
Okay by Katherine Marple (ending, duh- and also in the middle during a hospital scene)
Hunger Point by Jillian Medoff (a few self-realization scenes in the middle)
Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult (oh my goodness I sobbed like a little baby throughout this book)
The Pact by Jodi Picoult (almost the entire book had me weeping)
Love the One You're With by Emily Giffin (twisted emotions through the whole book)
Baby Proof by Emily Giffin (also tears throughout the whole book- honesty in words)
Wicked by Gregory Macguire (yes, I even cried at this epic novel. But it was so unfair!)

I've actually heard many people talk about "We Need to Talk About Kevin". I've never seen the book before, but maybe I'm just not paying attention. I will research it online and see if it's something that I'd like.
tuesdays with morrie made me cry also, because of the good bonding and friendship of morrie and his long time student..
ps. iloveyou made me cry because even though jerry is dying he did not tell it to holly because he doesnt want her to worry and be sad..
A recent aquisition was 'For Love and Courage', the First World War letters from the trenches to his wife and family by Lieutenant Colonel E.W.Hermon, their replies are not kept, but from his letters, one gets to know the man and what he is about. Towards the end however, I couldn't read it for several attempts, try as I might, I felt real pain and anguish and yes, tears flowed like rain. I eventually read it after a few weeks of leaving it alone. I have never experienced anything quite like this book, ever, I thought I was fairly immune to sorrow and grief, especially through someone elses family, but, read it if you can without crying like a baby....I can't.
A story of a man dying and a man enriching his life by the dying man's wisdom. A story about friendship. A story about the vast power of life. A story I will read over and over again, and cry each time again.
