Yes, I cried many times while reading books. Recently I read Breathing Two worlds by Ruchira Khanna and I cried like a baby. Also Cage of lies series books by Susanne Valenti made me cry a lot.

James Harriot's books always make me tear up. Pretty much any book where the dog dies reduces me to tears. I couldn't even get through the first chapter of A Dog's Purpose for that very reason.

well...I don't cry. I've never cried over a book but a few have left me reeking emotionally. at the top of the list is Eliza and Her Monsters by Fransesca Zappia.

Some parts of the book, Big Little Lies, I could really relate to how the women were feeling during their struggles. I relieved the pain that they were going through, which were similar to what I personally experienced.

If happy tears count, Eva Ibbotson's Journey to the River Sea is the first one that comes to mind--especially when I read the reason for her writing this awesome book (her feelings following the passing of her husband). Even if children's books aren't your thing, I highly recommend this book.

I have got one so far and that is entitled 'Who Told You That You Were Naked'. Seeing such innocent souls being trapped by Satan,to the fall of everyone to come and the difficulties in coming back to the presence of God,mankind falling throughout generations without an answer until Jesus Christ came to be an answer,the anchor of our salvation for ever and ever amen!

A Separate Peace by John Knowles. I highly recommend this novel to anyone that has not yet read it.
Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.

A lot of books have made me cry as I read them but Toni Morrison's Beloved still unsettles me emotionally any time I mentally go through its storyline.

The last book I read & cried was Desperately Seeking EPIC by BN Toler. It was so, so good but terribly sad. I love that it had a great ending for the main characters. I would definitely recommend this to others if you are looking for a good cry.
