Most Recent Saddest Books I’ve Read

Most Recent Saddest Books I’ve Read
(a.k.a. the ones I was sobbing during) So, I decided not too long ago that there are some sad books that I absolutely adore, and now I feel the need to inflict them upon you all. So here are my top four books that made me cry. Most of these are last books in the series, but I promise I will not give any spoilers! #4: Clockwork Princess We all know Clare is hit and miss for me, but this book made me cry! I enjoyed this series, and felt the ending was satisfying. Doesn’t mean I wasn’t sad for a few days after though. #3: Night of the Dragon We just aren’t talking about this one — I did cry. However, I love the aspects of hope Kagawa inserts into this series, and overall, I did (mostly) appreciate the end. I went into shock with this one. I still haven’t recovered. #2: Magic’s Price This is an older series, but is still really good. I mean the whole series was fairly dark and sad. The final book, this one…was heart wrenching. I wanted to scream reading it. *cue ugly crying* The first time I read this I just lost it and screamed and threw my pillow across the room. #1: Song of Achilles Is it really any surprise what is number one on this list? I have repeatedly talked about how this one crushed and stomped on my heart DESPITE my knowing the actual myth. I mean, really, how hard could it actually hit? Hard. I still ugly sob every time I read this book. I pretty much end up in this ball on my bed bawling my eyes out. So…what books make you sad/cry? I want to know!
