Read A Mighty Heart by Mariane pearl. It is a true story about an American journalist, Daniel pearl, who was held captive by terrorists and later beheaded. The story is tragic. The book is a tribute to a man who was good and did not deserve to die. I was crying profusely by the end but more than anything, this is one book that I think everybody should read because we need to know these stories.

I never get overly emotional while reading books but there were a few which made me feel hollow and emotionally drained. One book which actually made me tear up was The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox by Maggie O' Farrell. It was no conventional tear-jerker but something about the story just made me lose it.

I also remember being extremely sad after reading Atonement by Ian McEwan, mainly thinking about how a silly childish mistake, even something that you say, can completely turn around your life with unexpected consequences.
 
Don't know why, but remember feeling pretty depressed after finishing Mockingjay Tongue!

I get that feeling. The first two chapters of Khaled Hosseini's And the mountains echoed made me feel so depressed, it used to haunt me in bed. (The rest of the book, sadly, was very average.)

I have never heard of this book but the just the title makes me want to pick it up.

I can't really remember, but I think the first time I literally sobbed during a book was Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I think that actually made me cry worse than any other book, so it's the one that I remember.
