Before we say anything, we want to inform our dearest readers that readers who read books like they need it more than air are masochists. We like pain, we love crying over things except for our own lives, we like sobbing and screaming because a book, literal ink on paper, broke us and tore us apart. We like books that make us feel real feelings, something that moves us, speaks to us, and haunts us for the rest of our lives. Several books will hurt you and make you sob, but there’s nothing like a good book that leaves you gaping, staring at the wall, tears streaming down your face because what the hell did you just read?
Readers consider these books to be must-read books that will make you cry. We have read most of these books. No, actually, to be honest, we have read every book mentioned in this list except the book that broke every reader’s heart. If you know which book we are talking about, then it’s okay, we feel your pain, but if you don’t, then perhaps you will learn soon.
