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.


Children's Books that almost make me cry...
The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.
Are You My Mother by Dr Suess
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
Koala Lou by Mem Fox
Dogger by Shirley Hughes
The Little Drummer Boy

I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) 'third party cookies', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

All anonymous comments will be deleted.

If all else fails, you can contact me on my fb page or twitter.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
