We asked our Facebook followers for their favourite heartbreaker; that one book that broke your heart, left a lump in your throat and a sudden desire for ice cream and cuddles.
We had over a thousand responses and over two hundred different titles were mentioned but ten stood out. Here they are, the top twenty weepies according to you.
The next ten books, in the order of nomination are:
My Sister’s Keeper~Jodi Picoult
The Diary of a Young Girl~Anne Frank
Black Beauty ~ Anna Sewell
Love Story~Erich Segal
Anna Karenina~Leo Tolstoy
PS I Love You~Cecilia Ahern
Message in a Bottle~Nicholas Sparks
Little Women~Louisa May Alcott
Rage of Angels~Sidney Sheldon
The Bridges of Madison County~Robert J Waller
Wow, you do love a sad story don’t you. I hope we haven’t upset you too much with these weepy wanderings down memory lane and as always, if there’s a title you think should have been on the list, let us know in the comments.
