Haha, nice title, eh? Anyways, this discussion was floating around a bit on my Twitter today so I thought to put a list of my own of which books left me close to (if not) ;_; while reading.
Before I proceed, super MASSIVE spoilers if you haven’t read the book.
If you’re reading this on my LJ, I will put spoiler tags so that you won’t be spoiled if you haven’t read it. If you’re reading this here on my website…well, how about I use the white font and you highlight over it, yeah? Maybe that will work ^_~ Edit: I’ve installed a spoiler plugin recently so it’s all hidden now 😉

Wish by CLAMP — Not a book but a 4-volume manga. To date this is the only manga that reduced me to tears at an unexpected moment:
And that’s all the books that came to mind for this list. What books left you misty-eyed?
